The Chez Nous apartments are in a building called Haus Maoli that is just a 5 minute walk from the centre of Zermatt and all the 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 6-8 people.
Le Petit is on the first floor and can sleep 4 people.
The only practical point to bear in mind is that direct access to our building from street level is down 3 flights of stairs which might make it tricky for very young children. However once your luggage is installed most guests then use the shortcut to the village via a path across the field in front of the house.
We (Lizzie Orange and Angus Potter) have been living and working in Zermatt for the last 8 years (and Angus has been skiing here since he was 9 years old). We met here and, having left our 'London lives' behind, decided that Chez Nous was a great way to combine our skills. As well as running Chez Nous, Angus teaches skiing at one of the local ski schools (Stoked) and Lizzie is a private chef and organises events and, in the event that Chez Nous is not right for you, she can also tailor-make a holiday in Zermatt for you.
We have been running a small b&b from our apartment on the 3rd floor for the last 4 years. But in May this year the opportunity arose to take on 2 more flats in the same building (the Swiss laws re. foreigners buying property allowed us to buy one and lease the other) which means we can now offer our guests the privacy of a self-catered holiday combined with the feel and warmth of staying in someone else's home. We are completely re-furnishing the flats this summer to create a more cosy atmosphere that aims to make you feel at home from the moment you walk in.
We hope that us being 'on site' (without being in your way) will help you get the most out of your holiday. Angus knows the ski area like the back of his hand and Lizzie's forte is food - so between us we think we have the most important things covered. We will be on hand to make recommendations, reservations, answer any questions or simply have a glass of wine with you in the evening if you want to come upstairs and say hello.
