                                The apartment is wonderful, warm and comfortable and in a good location. The owner couldn't have been more helpful in making our stay easy and enjoyable- everything was thought about carefully. We would stay here again!

                                We had a fabulous stay here. Ideal for six adults and a one year old. Adrian was very helpful organising a cot. Everything is so close by.

                                A wonderful stay at Chalet Bergheim

                                5 of 5
                                Chalet Bergheim is nestled in a beautiful spot in the hills above Zermatt. From the balcony there is an amazing panoramic view of the surrounding mountains - there is nothing quite like having the Matterhorn waiting to welcome you as you drink your coffee every morning! Inside, the Chalet is tastefully appointed from the lovely cosy sitting room complete with wood burning stove, to the comfortable bedrooms and stylish main bathroom, which features a hot tub from which you get another fantastic view of the Matterhorn! Very few places in Zermatt will offer this much peace and privacy – you really are in your own little world tucked away on the mountain-side. But it is only a short walk down the road into town. In winter this road would be a ski piste, making the journey even quicker! We brought our daughter with us (20 months old) and we had no problems managing with her. There was plenty of space for her to play inside and the balcony is enclosed so that she could also play outside. We had a glorious week at Bergheim enjoying the stunning scenery and often walking directly into the mountains from the chalet. Zermatt is a truly special place and Chalet Bergheim offers a wonderfully unique way to make your stay extra special.
