Description from owner
Chalet Bergheim is a magical, private, ski-in/ski-out mountain chalet, built in 1933 in traditional walliser style wooden construction. Renovated in 2014, the chalet is furnished with bespoke, hand made furniture and natural materials but with all of the features you would expect in a modern mountain chalet including free wi-fi throughout, a whirlpool bath and open log fire. The chalet is completely surrounded by nature with virtually no neighbours in sight, and you don't have to share the property with anyone! Outside there is a large private garden and terrace, with a 8 person cedar hottub (Spring 2016), fire pit and bbq facilities, perfect for soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the warm summer weather. One of the only free-standing chalets in Zermatt, the chalet sleeps 6 adults comfortably in 3 double bedrooms with 2 bathrooms (one with separate whirlpool room overlooking Matterhorn). With additional beds the maximum occupancy is 9 (max 7 adults, 1 children and 1 baby). The chalet

The chalet is sold on a self-catering basis but a catering service or fresh food delivery may be available on request.
Nestled in the tree line at 1750m and overlooking the rooftops of Zermatt, the chalet is directly on the Sunegga ski-piste giving access to the 450 kilometers of pistes offered by the best known resort in Switzerland. Ski hard all day, grab a glass of wine and sit in front of the open fire or enjoy the evening sunshine on the terrace taking in the majestic views of the Matterhorn, that for us is the perfect day. Or in the Summer, take the mountain bike up to a mountain lake for a swim, hit some single trail on the way down, go for a hike in the woods and then end the day with sausages on the bbq and a drink or two around a camp fire in the fire pit. If like us, you are in love with the mountains and you value stunning natural surroundings, your own space, and a host of amazing adventures on your doorstep then you will fall in love with this place.

- Surrounded by nature with very few neighbors

Zermatt is a car-free village and hence access by private car to the property is not possible.
IMPORTANT IN WINTER: In winter it's only possible to access the property to within 400m by taxi, and after that you must go by foot on a prepared winter trail (direct access by taxi possible in summer). From the town to the chalet it is a 20-25min walk uphill, part of which is alongside the ski piste. There is however an elevator during lift opening hours which reduces the amount of uphill and walking time! From the ski piste to the chalet there are steps. Prior to guest arrival we clear the steps of snow and lay grit. However, should there be snowfall then snow clearance may be required during your stay. Should there be insufficient snow on the piste next to the house, it is 400m walk to a snow-sure piste. In winter free luggage transfer is available Monday to Saturday 9am until 4pm unless very poor weather conditions. You therefore must plan to be in Zermatt before 3:15pm at the latest on arrival day! Contact us for more details of arrival arrangements.
The Valais region
Zermatt is located in one of the highest resorts in the Alps ensuring the best possible ski conditions. Dominated by the Matterhorn and its surrounding scenery, it combines, great year round skiing with a beautiful car free village, incredible restaurants, lively Après ski and fantastic shopping.
As well as being famous for the Matterhorn, Zermatt boasts an incredible selection of mountain restaurants. The skiing is world class with four major interconnected areas including Sunnega/Rothorn, The Gornergrat, Klein Matterhorn and lastly due to its location on the Swiss/Italian border, Cervinia in Italy.
Zermatt is the only resort in the world where you can go Skiing and snowboarding the whole year round, with 365 days of snow. As the highest altitude, largest and most efficiently developed snow sport location in the Alps, Zermatt offers an absolute snow guarantee. In winter, 360 km of piste attracts skiers of all levels. Unlimited skiing and snowboarding between Switzerland and Italy – no other destination can offer this.
In the summer, you can enjoy the 20 km of pistes on the Zermatt Theodul Glacier. Carve and relax alongside national ski teams from all over the world with the Matterhorn always in sight.
Hiking in Winter
Zermatt offers 70 km of winter walking paths. You will be able to enjoy the peace and quiet away from the pistes, on high altitude paths with marvelous views. Wander through snow-covered woods, or follow the traces of the ancient Wallisers, up to the Zmutt hamlet. Almost all winter walking paths have a gentle inclination, both up and down.
There are plenty of opportunities for Tobogganing in Zermatt. The downhill toboggan journey from Rotenboden lasts between five and ten minutes – and is great fun for all ages. Or toboggan from the chalet to town!
Snow Shoe Hiking
This is a mode of transport once used by our ancestors. While these were formerly made of wood, small branches and animal sinews, today's snowshoe hiking fans have a choice of high-tech materials. Guided hikes are a very special experience. This is truly a spiritual experience for all ages.
The natural and artificial ice rinks in the centre of the village offer free fun on the ice from December to the end of February. This is where the youngest ice sport fans get together, to play at being an ice princess or to compete against each other at ice hockey.
You've never seen Zermatt like this before: In free flight, with a bird's eye view, flying with the wind. Paragliding fulfills the dream of flying. And you stay in the air for up to half an hour. Enjoy this wonderful experience and feel as free as a bird!
Fine dining on the slopes is guaranteed with world famous restaurants open throughout the season. There is no resort in the world that offers the same incredible gourmet experiences. There is something very special about enjoying a salad that was picked just moments before from the nearby by garden.
Glacier Paradise And The Gonergrat
The Gornergrat railway will take you to the top of the mountain for breathtaking views. At the top you can visit the Glacier Paradise, a glacier filled with beautiful ice carvings and benches adorned with thick sheep skin rugs
Cinema, Indoor Climbing, Matterhorn Museum, Tennis, Beauty and Wellness, Swimming, Guided Village Tours, Mountaineer Cemetry
Hiking in Summer
With more than 400 km of marked hiking and walking trails, Zermatt, Täsch and Randa offer a wide range of options to hiking fans. The mountain railways make it possible to effortlessly reach altitudes up to 3,000 metres above sea level. The areas in Täsch and Randa, with breathtaking views of the Weisshorn and the peaks of the Mischabel group, are recommended to those who like to walk up to higher altitudes. Or you can follow in the footsteps of Emile Zola, Eduard Whymper and Albert Schweizer to walk to Trift. And there are walking trails close to the villages for those who prefer shorter less strenuous walking.
Mountaineering and Climbing
The destination Zermatt Täsch Randa has its roots in alpine sport and mountaineering. 65 licensed mountain guides know all about the mountain world around the Matterhorn, with its 38 4,000-metre peaks.
Over gravel and stones, through larch and Swiss pine forests, on Single Trails – and all this with a magnificent mountain backdrop: With a total of 100 km with different difficulty levels, you will cover an average of 1,000 metres of altitude.
Nestled in the tree line at 1750m and overlooking the rooftops of Zermatt, the chalet is directly on the Sunegga ski-piste giving access to the 450 kilometers of pistes offered by the best known resort in Switzerland.

“Chalet Bergheim holiday memories shall be forever treasured”
Historically tales of our holiday dramas and the chaos created have made for good drink party entertainment, and this one was no exception. Chalet Bergheim holiday memories shall be forever treasured. We thank you Will. The journey for us was quite a long one. I was in the company of one husband, two of our sons, ones daughter in law and our near 2 year old grandson, .. his first vacation, pleased to report that he coped incredibly well, and displayed immaculate travel and holiday behaviour. On arrival in Zermatt we were met as arranged in the Square by Gabor, however, and to our dismay, although not surprisingly as we are the original Calamity Family, the prevailing weather conditions prevented the scheduled helicopter luggage transfer and consequently ALL our luggage plus champagne, beer and gin essentials had to be dragged pulled and carried the 400+ metre steepish snow covered path up to the Chalet, (we did opt to take this route - helicopter transfer was offered for the next day), not a task for the weak fainthearted infirm … or me. I am an excellent delegator and soon had each child and husband loaded up like donkeys with at least 2 heavy bags each! … onward troops, character building. Little tiny note here … recommend the purchase of a skidoo with large trailer like sledge attachment, or caterpillar track wheel barrow. (only kidding). It was an absolute delight to reach our final destination, (suitably and ideally placed right next door to one Veuve Clicquot Champagne Bar), the Chalet Bergheim a cosy, warm and most charming residence, well equipped, well maintained, smartly furnished, being specified and detailed to a high standard, … second little tiny note here … the aesthetically pleasing taps over the slate wash basins need to be operated with caution - gently on - to avoid dress wetting, that aside … being established in the mountains, amidst tall snow laden trees with the odd random black furry weasel like creature running by, and with ….. when the weather allowed ….. uninterrupted views of the rocky mountainy magnificently tall and splendid eruption they call the Matterhorn, breathtaking causing tears of prickly delight….. absolutely perrrrfect. ….. foot notes may be helpful to a small percentage given a similar case scenario … Mad Granny, Daughter in Law, Grandson ….. deserted by ….. Granddad, Son and Son. The uphill Chaletward walk was a little more challenging than envisaged, in so much as, yes one reads the detailed briefing regarding reaching the Chalet but not until one is actually there does one fully appreciate what one read … (admittedly this failing is quite possibly conducive to me, the hormonal Mad Granny organising the holiday … who has no concept whatsoever of trudging anywhere under difficulties least not snow covered uphill path like ones), the task slash commitment of carrying a near two year old who does not walk that far, up on a multi x daily basis was not to be taken lightly, the walk from the elevator was the maximum we could endure, from the town would probably have involved the Air Ambulance! And finally, as I am allergic to heavy manual work, I would certainly have accepted and would highly recommend the 'shopping for you' 100 chf service charge seems quite economical in body punishment hindsight. All in all we award a score of 10 out of 10. Totally recommendable.
Thanks Chrissy for your hilarious review! Unfortunately the canton of Wallis won't let us have a snowmobile otherwise we would get one. It only happens about once per season that the helicopters can't fly due to bad weather, sorry that you were the unlucky one. Good job you had plenty of champagne and gin for afterwards! Glad you had a fun time and come back soon. Will
