Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Zermatt - Chez Nous
Self-catering with a cosy, home-stay feeling

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.

Details for holiday apartment Le Petit, 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 4, 1 Bathroom, 1 Separate WC

Le Petit is a 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). We like to think that it is small but perfectly formed. 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.

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.

Lizzie Orange purchased this apartment in 2013

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.

Nous avons passé une merveilleuse semaine en couple "chez nous".
Lizzie et Angus sont des hôtes parfaits!
Ils nous ont accompagnés dans nos réservations (ski, restaurants, spas, etc..), et tout devient facile et agréable avec eux. Lizzie, ton cake au citron à notre arrivée était simplement délicieux.
L'appartement est bien situé dans le village. Facile d'accès depuis la gare, et pour se rendre sur les pistes (nous prenions un taxi pour ne pas porter les skis et les chaussures :) , toujours très rapide pour vous prendre "chez nous")..
La vue depuis l'appartement est idéale : sur le Matterhorn.
L'appartement est très bien tenu, et parfaitement équipé (même si nous prenions tous nos repas à l'extérieur :) ).
Nous reviendrons avec les enfants la prochaine fois, c'est décidé!
Merci Lizzie et Angus pour ces belles vacances.
Yann & Léonor.
Owner's Response: Dear Yann and Léonor

Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. You now know me well enough to know that I am not going to embarrass myself publicly by trying to write back to you in French (the quality, or lack of it, of my spoken French can be our secret!) but it was a real pleasure to meet you both and have you staying with us. We are so looking forward to seeing you again in April and meeting the children and I hope you will start to view this as your Zermatt home.

Very best wishes to you both, Lizzie and Angus

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!
Owner's Response: Thank you Wen. It was lovely to meet you all and see you get so much out of the mountains here. Hope to be able to welcome you back at some stage but in the meantime very best wishes to you all, Lizzie and Angus

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.
Owner's Response: Thank you Adam. It was lovely to meet you all and to see you enjoying the flat. Hope that 2014 is settling in to its stride and look forward to seeing you again. Best wishes from us both, Lizzie and Angus

Fantastic location. Close to all necessary amenities and equidistant from all major ski lifts.

Spectacular views of the Matterhorn from living room.

Really peaceful despite being close to everything.

Booking was so simple and all instructions about location clear and concise.

Would recommend this to couples, groups of friends and families.

Wish it was mine!
Owner's Response: Thank you Laurie,

Look forward to seeing you back in Zermatt "Chez Nous" soon.
