Description

The Chez Nous apartments (Le Petit sleeps 4, Le Corbassiere sleeps 6 and The Mischabel sleeps 6-8) are in the same 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.

Le Petit is a charming (and spacious) 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom flat on the first floor of the building (on the right hand side as you look at the photo of the exterior). The pretty sitting room/dining room has a kitchen off it and a large wrap-around balcony that faces out to the field with the lovely old Swiss stadls in the foreground and the Matterhorn presiding in the background. The dining area comfortably seats 6 people and for relaxing evenings in there is a 45" home cinema system (with UK channels and Apple TV). The apartment is fully equipped with all the essentials including wifi, a coffee machine, hairdryers packs and a home made cake will be there to greet you when you arrive.

The apartment is fully equipped with all the essentials including wifi, a coffee machine, hairdryers packs and a home made cake will be there to greet you when you arrive.

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 Swiss Alps 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

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.

“Amazing location, beautiful accomodation and the warmest of welcomes.”

Reviewed 4 Apr 2016

I have stayed twice at Chez Nous and would highly recommend this apartment as a home away from home. The apartment is ideally situated to ensure you enjoy the best of Zermatt and the breath-taking view of the Matterhorn. I found the apartment to be fully equipped, beautifully furnished, clearly with a lot of attention to detail and thought in regard to the small things; homemade cake on arrival and tissues and chocolate to take whilst out skiing. The accommodation in itself exceeded my expectations but what really made the stay so special at Chez Nous was the warm and friendly nature of Lizzie Orange & Angus Potter - nothing is too much trouble for them - thank you.

Thank you Vikki - for taking the time to do this and for your generous review. It was lovely to have you all with, spread over both apartment, and see such a group of colleagues enjoying the time to get together here in Zermatt. We will look forward to welcoming you back next year. Best wishes, Lizzie and Angus

“Just Perfect”

Reviewed 1 Oct 2015

My husband and I stayed here for a week with our 6 month old daughter. The apartment was clean, beautifully decorated and equipped with everything we needed. The views of the Matterhorn were spectacular. By the end of our holiday, we were sad to leave because it felt like our new home. My husband and I agreed that we could have happily stayed forever. It was some of the small details that made this apartment special - there was freshly-made lemon cake for us upon arrival, coffee, bread, butter and a few other essentials. A baby cot and high chair were provided for our daughter. Lizzie picked us up from the train station, and she was incredibly helpful in providing information about the local area. She even gave us discount vouchers for some of the local attractions. We were made to feel welcomed and comfortable. By far the best holiday rental we've ever stayed in. We highly recommend it.

Oh thank you so much Meleah - it was lovely to meet you all and I am so glad that you all felt at home "Chez Nous". When we were setting up the apartments Angus and I spent a lot of time trying to figure out what should go where but I don't think either of us realised how much pleasure we would get from our guests' appreciation of our apartments - so feedback like this means a great deal to us and I hope that we can continue to keep the apartments looking fresh as well as familiar - and the great bonus is that one thing we can be sure of is that the wonderful view of that amazing mountain will never change! Best wishes to you both for the remainder of 2015 and I hope that we will be able to welcome you back at some stage.

Our stay at Chez Nous was wonderful. The hosts kindly set everything for us and were very helpful and made our experience in Zermatt even better. The apartment was lovely and clean. I highly recommend it. Je vous recommande aussi le gateau-maison au citron de Lizzie...Famous!

Oh thank you Pierre for taking the time to do that. It was lovely to meet you and have you and the boys with us over their school holiday and I am relieved that the lemon cake lived up to its billing! I hope that we will be able to welcome the whole family next time you are here and in the meantime very best wishes to you all, Lizzie and Angus

“Zermatt - Best Apartment with Matterhorn Views”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2014

We absolutely loved Zermatt and Chez Nous was a huge part of it. Beautifully appointed apartment - even nicer than the photographs. We were there four days with our two children (11 and 14). It rained for two days and yet, we so enjoyed our time - between staring at the ever-changing Matterhorn, cooking in and watching Apple TV and BBC TV - all were content. The apartment was centrally located to the shops yet not in the thick of the tourist area. We were also there to enjoy August 1st - the Swiss National Day - fun, festive and lots of fireworks. We took incredible hikes as well. Can't wait to go back and ski! Oh yes, as you'll see in the reviews, everyone mentions Lizzie's lemon cake. I thought that was a nice gesture until I had a slice of that warm deliciousness - oh my goodness - it's a huge act of kindness - incredible! Lastly, Lizzie is just a wonderful host (we didn't get to meet Angus but no doubt he is too). And before I forget, Lizzie met us at the train station with a taxi and arranged for our return which made arrival and departure very easy.

Thank you for taking the time to do a review of your stay Heather - it was a real pleasure to meet you all and to see your enthusiasm for everything Zermatt has to offer (in all sorts of weather!). I do hope that we will be able to welcome you back here to try the skiing and to see the Matterhorn in its winter cloak - but in the meantime, very best wishes to you all - Lizzie

“Perfect apartment in a wonderful location”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2014

My husband and I together with my parents spent a wonderful few days at Chez Nous in June 14. Le Petit apartment is spacious and beautifully furnished and has everything you could wish for including a fabulous view of the Matterhorn from the balcony. We took advantage of Lizzie’s offer to cook an evening meal on our first night and it was absolutely delicious and very plentiful and was the perfect start to our holiday. It was lovely to find the fridge stocked on arrival with immediate essentials including wine/beer and also a lovely lemon cake. The location of the apartment is ideal –only a short walk to the village centre but in a quiet spot overlooking a small alpine meadow which in June was full of wild flowers. The beds were very comfortable and even bath robes were provided. The TV/sound system is state of the art and it is amazing to find such quality in a holiday apartment. All in all it was by far the best apartment we have ever stayed in and that’s all down to Lizzie and Angus’s attention to detail and great service.

Oh thank you Jane - what a lovely review and it was so nice to see you and your parents having such a lovely time (I think you got the best of this summer's weather!) and I'm very glad that Angus and I managed to play a part in that and that you appreciated what we have tried to create here. Hope that we may be able to welcome you back to see The Matterhorn in its winter cloak - but very best wishes to you, Tony and your parents in the meantime, Lizzie

“Beautiful, comfortable chalet in a great location”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2014

Guests at Le Petit can expect top quality, the owners have not skimped on furnishings and have thought of everything. The chalet has everything needed for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Lizzie is also incredibly helpful with local knowledge. The chalet is positioned between the main ski access gondolas, so access is easy. We had not realised how sprawling Zermatt was prior to arrival and the location of Le Petit is fantastic - relatively flat walking distance to the shopping and the lifts. It was also the cleanest chalet we have ever stayed in.

Thank you Laura - sorry for slow reply - for some reason I don't always get notified when there has been a review posted on TripAdvisor. But thank you for taking the time because reviews really help people get a feel for what is on offer as opposed to simply relying on what we say! Hope we will be able to welcome you all back at some stage and best wishes to you all in the meantime, Lizzie

“A perfect pied a terre in the heart of Zermatt”

Reviewed 20 Feb 2014

This review is long overdue. My wife and two college-aged boys and I stayed at Le Petit Apartment over the New Years holiday and had a magnificent time. The setting is fantastic - centrally located, within easy walking distance of everywhere. It's very well appointed with comfortable bedrooms ands a nice living area. And then there's the amazing view of the iconic Matterhorn. Lizzie and Angus were splendid hosts, going above and beyond to help with reservations, line up a mountain guide, and offer suggestions about fun things to do. If you're considering a winter holiday in Zermatt, and you should, this is a wonderful staging base. I can't recommend it highly enough!

Thank you for taking the time to do that Wenn and hope that all is well with you and that 2014 is unfolding as it should. It's snowing here as I type this so we're hoping for some powder days next week! It was really lovely to meet you all and see you getting so much out of the mountains - hope that we will meet again either here or there. Very best wishes to you all, Lizzie and Angus

“Amazing, felt like home”

Reviewed 12 Jan 2014

We had the pleasure of staying with Lizzie and Angus over xmass '13. The end to end experience was excellent. Lizzie was incredibly helpful in arranging the details of our stay. The apartment, while called "le petit" is actually quite large and was perfect for our family of 5 (3 kids). The amenities were top notch and the apartment was ideally located in the center of town and near the ski lifts. Lizzie and Angus were warm and welcoming hosts, they helped with restaurant recommendations and reservations and generally made us feel as though we were in our own home. We will certainly return.

Thank you Adam - hope to see you here again soon-ish. Best, Lizzie and Angus

“Fabulous apartment and great hospitality”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2014

We had a great stay in Zermatt in December 2013 - the apartment was warm, inviting, stylish and well appointed. Lizzie and Angus couldn't do enough to make our stay as easy as possible - we will definitely be coming back!

Thank you Sarah. Look forward to seeing you all again at some stage and best wishes for 2014 in the meantime, Lizzie and Angus

“好立地とマッターホルンビュー”

Reviewed 4 Nov 2013

キッチン付のアパートメントです。 一通りのキッチン用具は揃っており、地下には洗濯機もあるので洗濯も可能です。 ケーブル乗り場やスーパーなども徒歩で数分の場所にあり、とても都合が良かったです。 リビングの大きな窓からは、マッターホルンが丸見えです。 ベランダにはテーブルなども置いてあるので、夏はマッターホルンを眺めながら外で食事をする事も可能でした! 好立地でありながら、街の中心からは少し離れているので、静かに過ごす事ができました。 WIFIが通っているので、ネットは使いたい放題でした。 テレビは、イギリスのケーブルテレビが入っているので、いろいろなドラマやスポーツを見る事がきました!!
