                                                        Couldn't be better for a family of 5

                                                        Spacious and fully equipped condo for our family of 3 boys (15, 13,9 ). Location is perfect within zermatt and has a spectacular Matterhorn view off the large patios. Very tasteful modern design. Bathrooms and beds were fantastic. Supplied coffee wine and some fruit & baking which was a nice touch. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

                                                        Super super apartment that's extremely well located!

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        The apartment is very well located in the centre of Zermatt - close to bars and restaurants etc, but being just off the Main Street it offers enough peace and quiet to not keep you awake at night. 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!

                                                        This apartment is even more amazing in person!

                                                        Extraordinary apartment!! We were more than happy with our stay in Le Petit. First of all the view from apartment is breathtaking. The apartment is comfortable, making you feel at home. Although we did not have the pleasure of meeting Lizzie, she made sure we were well taken care of. Martin was our greeter and a wonderful person. The apartment was well stocked and Lizzie had left fresh fruit,bread,coffee, tea, milk and more to help get us started. Everything was beyond perfect! Thank you again Lizzie and we hope to return soon!!
