Lizzie made sure that we were greeted at the train station and then arranged a taxi service for all 7 of us. At the apartment, we had a lemon cake, fruit, milk, coffee and Prosecco waiting for us. That was a nice surprise, especially for the morning. We were given great suggestions on activities and where to eat. I would stay here again.

However, the apartment stays quiet and insulated from the noise of the town. All around the apartment are beautiful 16th century barns and lovely cobblestone streets. It's less than 10 minutes to the train station and a lovely 15 minute walk to the gondolas up to the Matterhorn. The home has been redone in a beautiful and tasteful way. Our family of four had plenty of space to relax and enjoy the views of the Matterhorn. Marcus was quick to respond to any questions we had, and his associate was very helpful and kind. We would love to return to Zermatt someday and can't imagine staying anywhere else!
