Unfortunately the washing machine is no longer free, you have to buy a card for 50 CHF! Not great when you have two young children and have been away from home for a week before arriving! Contacted Mrs Santos the manager who was very friendly and offered the use of her machine - Thank you! Loads to see and do in Zermatt, beautiful walks, lakes, via ferrata etc, only negative is no outdoor (or indoor) public pool.

The views from the apartment were excellent, with snow capped peaks visible from the windows. The village had plenty of local walks, but was well located to visit some of the main attractions such as Zermatt/Matterhorn and the Aletsch glacier area. The property itself is situated in a very quite lane, with close proximity to a local store and restaurants. The property is modern and minimalist in fittings, but retains the charm of the ski chalet. The small balcony is a sun trap for evening relaxation.

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!
