It is situated right in the middle of Zermatt...seconds from the shops and less than a minute to the ski lift (gornegrat bahn). It is really well equipped with everything you could need. There are three large bedrooms, one on the ground floor with its own en-suite and two upstairs which share a large bathroom. The living accommodation is large and the kitchen has everything you could need. Adrian, the owner could not be more helpful. Arrival and check out instructions are clear and we really felt like he did everything he could to make our stay hassle free. Thanks!!!
