There was absolutely nothing missing in the apartment and the attention to detail was very impressive. Impeccably decorated with the most amazing views of the Matterhorn. I could not think of a better place to stay in Zermatt. It does not get any better than this. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We will be back next year.

Located on the 2nd floor but the stairs up are easy ( even after a long day of hiking!) and the communal areas very clean and fresh smelling. It's not far from the cable cars ( easy walking distance) as well as being within easy walking distance of the main rail station also. The apartment has 2 balconies - one of which is usually in the sun. Also means easy to dry any damp/wet clothes etc. The apartment offers more than enough space. There were 3 of us in our party and we had ample room. The apartment is very well equipped - with just about everything a budding chef could want. If I had to be picky, I would say that a kettle would be the only thing missing - but that because I'm British and need my morning tea! We easily managed with a pan, but there are coffee machines to heat water if wanted. Beds are so comfy - we all remarked on how well we'd slept. The shower is super - we were dubious at first as only a small shower head, but it was extremely good. Handy seat in the shower cubicle if your legs have had a hard day too! We felt the apartment skimped on nothing. Fixtures and furniture was quality and the lovely lady that owns it rang us twice to make sure all was ok. Would I go back ? Yes most definitely! Would I recommend to others? Yes I would without doubt - as all in all, this is a superbly located apartment, that's reasonably priced for what's included. We all loved it!
