This village has so much to offer in the way of walks. A short shuttle ride got us to Zermatt each day where we enjoyed strolling around the lovely town. The fun park is worth a visit, the staff were lovely, it is good value and they speak excellent English which helped us and the children whilst on the wires through the trees. The skiing was amazing on the glacier. The ski shop wasn't open at Tasch to hire the equipment but inter sport by the lift station was reasonable and they couldn't have been more helpful. I would recommend to families to buy the travel pass for the children to reduce the overall cost. Visit the glacier paradise and take in the magnificent views in the restaurant at the top of the cable car station. We enjoyed the Gornegrat railway and the Zermatt museum which the children get in free with the pass. It was a truly wonderful holiday and I wouldn't hesitate to stay again. The apartment was very comfortable and clean with everything to could wish for for an enjoyable stay. The owner of the apartment was so helpful and kept in constant contact with us during our stay which was very reassuring. The pool was open 8-8 and the children really enjoyed this and the tennis courts. With a heavy heart we return home but plan to return. Thank you Mr Thierry.
