The Chez Nous apartments (Mischabel and Le Petit) are in a building called Haus Maoli that is just a 5 minute walk from the centre of Zermatt and both apartments have stunning views straight out on to the majestic Matterhorn.
The Mischabel is a split level apartment on the second floor that can sleep 6 people. However the master bedroom can also be arranged as a family room (the sitting area has a day bed that converts in to a full sized double bed) which means it could sleep 8 people.
The apartment is fully equipped with all the essentials including wifi, a coffee machine, hairdryers and packs of cards and a home made cake will be there to greet you when you arrive. The large open-plan kitchen/living-room leads on to a full-width, south-facing balcony looking directly at the Matterhorn and also has a 55" home cinema system (complete with all UK channels and Apple TV) - you can have breakfast gazing out at the mountain and, after a hard day on the mountains, get cosy by the fire drinking a glass of wine and watching a film in the evenings.
The only practical point to bear in mind is that direct access to the building from street level is down 3 flights of stairs which might make it tricky for very young children. However once their luggage is installed most guests then use the shortcut to the village via a path across the field in front of the house.
Zermatt has so much to offer all year round: skiing, snowboarding, hiking, paragliding, climbing or simply ambling to meet family and friends at one of the many mountain restaurants (the best that you will find in the Alps). If you have not been here before you will not be disappointed.

The Valais region
The village of Zermatt lies in the Valais region of southern Switzerland just on the border with Italy. Tucked away at the end of the valley with the Matterhorn presiding over it, this is one of the prettiest and most iconic villages in the Alps.
The history of Zermatt is steeped in the history of the early alpinists who were lured here by the concentration of peaks that surround the area and most of all by the Matterhorn. The story, and tragedy, of the first ascent in 1865 has become the stuff of mountaineering legend and the mountain continues to call out to climbers from all over the world.
However, the village has been transformed since those early days: then a small farming community struggled to eke out an existence during the long, hard winters; now Zermatt is a world-class destination for skiers, snowboarders, hikers and anyone who wants to enjoy the extraordinary panorama and experience of being in the mountains.
Zermatt deserves its reputation as one of the world's best mountain resorts - there is a magical quality to it all year round.
The Klein Matterhorn cable car is the highest cable car in Europe (3,883m at the summit) and on a clear day gives you simply breathtaking views out towards Mont Blanc and its surrounding peaks. Alternatively start your day on the Gornergrat railway which originally opened in 1898 and is the second highest railway in Europe (after the Jungfrau) - a great feat of Swiss engineering. From the top of Gornergrat you get a sweeping panorama of 29 "four thousanders" (mountains over 4,000m) including the Monte Rosa which is the highest mountain in Switzerland.
In the winter your lift pass covers the Zermatt and Cervinia and includes some 360km of marked runs but if that isn't enough you can also ice skate, sledge, hike, snow shoe, try curling or simply swim and relax in one of the village hotel's wonderful wellness areas.
In the summer there is glorious hiking, climbing, a fun park for the children, cycling, tennis, squash, paragliding and plenty of places to have a picnic by a lake.
At any time of year Zermatt has something to offer and its mountain restaurants are second to none in the Alps so the gourmet will not be disappointed either.

"Comfortable apartment in great location with stunning views and friendly welcome."
A short, pleasant walk (no more than 10 mins) to centre of of village and train station but also in a very quiet, open spot. Paperla pub a couple of minutes away. Migros supermarket 5 mins walk. Very comfortable apartment. 5 adults and 2 children under 4yrs there was plenty of space. Great balcony with superb views of Matterhorn and surrounds. Very good, simple access for families with children, I'd expect it would be no different during winter months. Warmly welcomed by the owners, who ensured we had everything needed for our stay. I would stay here again, particularly for the location.
Thank you for taking the time to do a review David. I know that Angus enjoyed meeting you all and I'm glad that the apartment was a good base for you all. Hope that we might be able to welcome you back again at some stage. Best wishes, Lizzie and Angus

"Beautiful apartment. Charming owners on site. Wonderful experience."
Everything about this rental property was top notch. Lizzie and Angus, the owners/managers, live in the same building and are always available. The apartment (they have 2 rental properties, we stayed in the larger one - Chez Nous - Mischabel, the 3BD, 3BTH) is tastefully decorated, and fully furnished/equipped. The bedrooms/bathrooms are very confortable. The kitchen is very complete (my wife is an amateur cook and praised the kitchen). The unit looks almost brand new (true to the pictures in their website/listing). It is a kid/family friendly unit. The view (one of the reasons why I chose the apartment) is spectacular - direct views of the Matterhorn. The location is great - right in the center of Zermatt and within walking distance to every activity in town. As for Lizzie and Angus, they are wonderful - they helped us at arrival/departure (met us at train station and arranged transportation), welcomed us into the apartment with unexpected food goodies, and were always available during our stay to help us/guide us. In short, I hope we can return to Zermatt and stay at Chez Nous.
Oh thank you Felipe - for taking the time to do a review of your stay and for writing such a nice one! We really enjoyed having you all "Chez Nous" and seeing the apartment used as a base for a family gathering - we have tried hard to make both our apartments places that people feel at home in so it means a lot to us that your experience matched what we wanted to achieve and we always try and keep the apartments "fresh" so that even for people who come back regularly (as some people do) they feel familiar but with the odd "new touch"! I do hope that we will be able to welcome you back to stay with us but in the meantime very best wishes to you all from us both, Lizzie and Angus

"Perfect Zermatt Stay"
Chez Mischabel was the perfect place for our family of five - it was large and comfy, well located, and had great views. It was very easy to get around the entire town as welll as reach all the lifts, trams, and trains just with 10 minute walks from the apartment Lizzie (the host) met us at the train station and helped us get situated at the apartment and throughout the week provided us with great service and recommendations on things to do in town. We enjoyed it so much we are already planning a trip back for next year.
Thank you Eric - and as you know it gave me real pleasure to see you and your family getting so much out of your time here and enjoying all that Zermatt has to offer in the summer (and I'm so glad that the apartment was a good base for you all). I do hope that we will be able to welcome you back to experience Zermatt in the winter and enjoy the variety of ski-runs that this area offers. Enjoy the rest of your summer and best wishes to you all, Lizzie

"If I could only choose one place to ever vacation again, it would be with Lizzie and Angus!"
It isn't just the beautiful home, the amazing view of the mountain and the Matterhorn, the cleanliness of the home, or the delicious goodies that were present when we arrived. It was everything. Prior to arrival Lizzie made our planning emensly smooth, she guided us in how to get there, the trains, transfers, great restaurants when we arrived, they even took care of our ski packages and equipment! They greeted us at the station when we arrived and helped us when we departed. Our highest compliments to their delightful personalities and demeanor. We will be back in 2017, wouldn't think of going anywhere else now! Edward
Dear Edward, Thank you so much for such a warm a review of your stay with us. It really was lovely to meet you all and hear you be so enthusiastic about "our mountains" and appreciative of how we have set up the apartment. That means a great deal to us both and I just hope that we can live up to the memory when you come back - it would be a great pleasure to host you again. Very best wishes to you all for now from a very snowy Zermatt (just when we thought we were heading in to spring it looks like we are back in mid-winter!). Lizzie and Angus

"Freienmds and when the Small things Matter"
The hired the apartments with a group of friend who we have not been away with before. When we arrived Lizzie was there to help us unpack and carry all the kit down. The apartment great. Modern, Clean and with and the modem fixtures and fitting You can rent it self-catered but Lizzie cooked on the 1st night (at Resquest) and the food was world class. Also it meant we could relax on the 1st night and talk to Angus and Lizzie about snow conditions and the best place to ski using their local experience. The 1st thing you notice is how modern and the high level of detailing on furniture and fittings within the apartments. The Facilities in the 3 big on suite rooms and the living areas was great. The right level of technology as everyone could watch latest movies at the same watch local TV & UK based TV. After watching the news we all started to play games on the large table with a View out to the village and the mountain Breakfast Food was there on arrival and Angus and Lizzie can down the spend the time with us to make us feel comfortable for the 1st day onwards The apartment was close to the centre of the village however far away to not have the louse and easy walking We have been to Zermatt alot over the last years and this was one of the most pleasant and enjoyable stays we had and we felt the warmth of Lizzie hospitality while able to do your own thing. A good balance between the Family and the host
Dear Andrew, Sabine and friends - thank you for taking the time to do a review for us and we are so pleased to know that our 2 apartments worked so well as a base for your trip to Zermatt. It is particularly nice seeing groups like yours appreciating what we have done to try and make both flats places that people can relax in at the end of a good ski day. I hope we will be able to welcome you back for more skiing or hiking in the summer? Best in the meantime, Lizzie and Angus

"We loved the flat, very comfortable and felt like home"
Lizzie is a very welcoming host and fabulous cook. She organised everything very effectively, our holiday was stress free and great fun. The flat worked very well for our family of 5. We found it very relaxing and enjoyed the large living space with wonderful views. The flat is very well designed and decorated, she even had a Christmas tree for us. Great TV, wi-fi and speaker system up. Highly recommend it.
Oh thank you Sarah - what a nice review and it was lovely to see you all looking at home in the apartment and enjoying it in the way we hoped people would (cooking the goose was particularly impressive) as well as getting so much covered on the mountain. I hope that 2015 gets off to a good start for you all and look forward to seeing you again soon. Very best wishes to all, Lizzie

"Chez Nous - Mishabel is absolutely gorgeous in every way"
Chez Nous is a beautiful apartment. All the bedrooms have lovely views particularly the main bedroom which looks directly across at the Matterhorn. The apartment is very spacious and absolutely immaculate. It is furnished beautifully with lots of little luxurious touches. The kitchen has everything you need and a lot more besides. Lizzie is extremely helpful and pleasant and if we had been new to Zermatt I am sure she would have helped us find our way around. We have had many holidays in Switzerland and I think this was one of the best.
Thank you Sarah for taking the time to do that and for such a nice review of your stay with us. It was lovely to meet you all and I do hope that we will see you here again at some stage but in the meantime best wishes to you all for the rest of 2014, Lizzie

"Quality fittings and space"
Centrally located, though steps up to road - as also for most of village. Large rooms with well fitted kitchen and bathrooms - views of Matterhorn great when it shows itself. We were 4 adults and 3 children (one in a cot) - we also had friends staying below us - but dining and kitchen was big enough for all to eat together (kids on bar stools). Apartment fitted out beyond what is required for a rental property - especially the gadgets.
Thank you for taking the time to post a review Mike and hope that you have all recovered from the orienteering week. We are so glad that you appreciated the "extras" that we have furnished the flats with to try and make it feel more than simply a "rental" - and hope that we may be able to welcome you back at some stage. But best wishes to you all for the rest of the summer, Lizzie

"Perfect Mountain Holiday"
We fell in love with this house - it was in the perfect location with incredible views and included just everything we could have needed - and more. The house is beautifully decorated and so comfortable that you'll never want to leave. Lizzy was a wonderful host and had even baked a delicious lemon cake for us upon our arrival. We would love to return in the future and would recommend this flat to anyone.
Thank you Lindsay - it's so nice to know that you all appreciated the "home stay feel" that Angus and I have tried to create here and I hope that we will be able to welcome you back for some winter skiing as well one day! Best wishes to you all, Lizzie

Mischabel Apartment has it all. Great quiet location but easy access to the town and all ski lifts plus fantastic views of the Matterhorn. The owners, Lizzie and Angus, go the extra mile to make you feel welcome in their beautifully decorated apartment which is spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. The Apple TV/Music System is exceptional and a big hit with our high tech off spring! We have been skiing in Zermatt for 14 years and stayed in various Hotels and Apartments. We would not hesitate to recommend Mischabel Apartment as it is perfect for a family or a group of friends and we will definitely return as it exceeded our expectations.
Dear Jo, Thank you for taking the time to review the apartment. It was so nice to see you all enjoying The Mischabel (after our email exchanges about it) and appreciating what we have tried to create here. I could sense the relief when they saw the TV and knew that they could watch the rugby in HD and in comfort! I hope that we will be able to welcome you back next season but in the meantime enjoy the spring weather that seems to have arrived in the UK and very best wishes to you all, Lizzie and Angus
