Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Zermatt-Matterhorn - Chez Nous

Self-catering with a cosy, home-stay feeling and on-site concierge service

The Chez Nous apartments are all in the same building (Haus Maoli) and are just a 5 minute walk from the centre of Zermatt. All the apartments have large south facing balconies with stunning views of the majestic Matterhorn. We have one of the few remaining fields left in the centre of the village just in front of our building and the charming old stadls give a very pretty perspective to the view and also provide a welcome feeling of space despite being so close to all the restaurants, the church bridge and the lift stations/bus.

For larger groups there are now 3 apartments to "play with" so that everyone can be in the same building but not necessarily all having to share the same living space.

Your hosts Lizzie & Angus live in the same building so in addition to everything that we do before you get here (we can organise ski schools, book restaurants, help with child care etc) we are also on hand during your stay to help with any questions.

The Corbassiere Apartment is a new addition to Chez Nous for the winter 2016/17 season and is a beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment on the 3rd floor that can sleep up to 6 people.

The Mischabel is a split level apartment on the second floor that can sleep 6-8 people.

Le Petit is on the first floor and can sleep 4 people.

The only practical point to bear in mind is that direct access to our building from street level is down 3 flights of stairs. However once your luggage is installed most guests then use the shortcut to the village via a path across the field in front of the house.

WARNING: we feel duty bound to warn any potential traveller, using sites like these, about the widespread proliferation of scammers setting up bogus listings and sites. If you are AT ALL uncertain about whether what you are booking is valid PLEASE telephone us because a conversation about what is on offer is much less easily 'faked' than an email offer/confirmation and we will always take the time to explain the Chez Nous service to you in detail.

More Details

Details for holiday apartment The Mischabel , 3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 8, 2 Bathrooms, 1 Separate WC

The Mischabel is a split level apartment on the second floor that can sleep 6 people. However the master bedroom can also be arranged as a family room (the sitting area has a day bed that converts in to a full sized double bed) which means it could sleep 8 people. The apartment is fully equipped with all the essentials including wifi, a coffee machine, hairdryers packs and a home made cake will be there to greet you when you arrive. The large open-plan kitchen/living-room leads on to a full-width, south-facing balcony looking directly at the Matterhorn and also has a 55' home cinema system (complete with all UK channels and Apple TV) - you can have breakfast gazing out at the mountain and, after a hard day on the mountains, get cosy by the fire drinking a glass of wine and watching a film in the evenings. For larger groups there is the possibility to take the apartment below (Le Petit) which sleeps 4.

About Lizzie Orange

We (Lizzie Orange and Angus Potter) have been living and working in Zermatt for the last 10 years (and Angus has been skiing here since he was 9 years old). We met here and, having left our 'London lives' behind, decided that Chez Nous was a great way to combine our skills. As well as running Chez Nous, Angus teaches skiing at one of the local ski schools (Stoked) and Lizzie is a private chef, organises events and, in the event that Chez Nous is not right for you, she can also tailor-make a holiday in Zermatt for you.

Lizzie Orange purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Lizzie Orange chose Zermatt-Matterhorn

Initially we ran a small b&b from our own apartment but we now have 4 apartments in this building (the Swiss laws re. foreigners buying property allowed us to buy one and lease the others) and as from Winter 2016/17, Chez Nous has 3 apartments to rent (The Corbassiere which sleeps 6 on the 3rd floor, The Mischabel which sleeps 6-8 on the 2nd floor and Le Petit which sleeps 4 on the 1st floor). We offer our guests the privacy of a self-catered holiday combined with the feel and warmth of staying in someone else's home. We have completely re-furnished the flats to create a more cosy atmosphere that aims to make you feel at home from the moment you walk in.

When we set up Chez Nous I don’t think either of us imagined the pleasure we would get from meeting and getting to know the guests who have stayed with us. We spent a lot of time talking about how we wanted the flats to look (and, as anyone who has done this will know, arguing about what should go where!) but didn’t foresee how nice it would be to see families and friends enjoying the space we have created.

We are delighted to be able to welcome so many guests who now stay with us each year (as well as saying hello to new guests) and we are doing our best to make sure we add a few new touches to each apartment each season to keep them fresh as well as familiar

What makes this apartment unique

We hope that us being 'on site' (without being in your way) will help you get the most out of your holiday. Angus knows the ski area like the back of his hand and Lizzie's forte is food - so between us we think we have the most important things covered. We will be on hand to make recommendations, reservations, answer any questions or simply have a glass of wine with you in the evening if you want to come upstairs and say hello.

Guestbook comments from the owner

the Mischabel condo was the perfect setting for our family of 5 looking for central location in town(Zermatt). besides its great location (and view of the Matterhorn), it was extremely clean and up to date (all very important to my wife) and had a terrific layout with a very sizeable and well-appointed common room adjacent to the kitchen for common living space and family congregation. the rooms are spacious and nicely done. it is always hard to discern the quality of a place by viewing on line; in this case, our expectations were greatly exceeded. Lizzie, who could not be nicer, made the whole check in process seamless, and was very helpful with tips on how to assimilate quickly (activities to pursue, location of grocery stores, etc). highly recommended by us.

Luxuriöse Wohnung für perfektes Skiferienerlebnis

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben die Wohnung von Lizzie im Januar 2016 für eine Woche Skiurlaub mit Freunden – 6 Erwachsene und 1 Kind – gemietet und waren schlicht begeistert. Die Wohnung ist ausgezeichnet gelegen, äusserst geschmackvoll eingerichtet und bietet mit einem eigenen Bad pro Erwachsenenzimmer, einer offenen Küche und einem top modernen TV & Musik Equipment alle Annehmlichkeiten, die man sich für einen Skiurlaub wünscht. Abends nach intensiven Skitagen ein Feuer im Schwedenofen anzuzünden, war schlicht grossartig. Lizzie, die Vermieterin ist unglaublich freundlich und hilfsbereit – jede Anfrage wurde prompt beantwortet und gelöst – so wurden extra Geschirr und Sitzgelegenheit für die Kleine organisiert und zweimal die Woche eine in-House Massage zu einem sehr fairen Preis. Es sind die Aufmerksamkeiten wie der selbst gebackene Zitronenkuchen, der bei Ankunft für uns bereit stand, die den Unterscheid machen. Die Wohnung ist ein Juwel und die Aussucht auf das Horu einzigartig. Wir werden ohne zu zögern wieder kommen!

Thanks Lizzie, your apartment is outstanding and one of a kind – so are you!

Fantastic appartment and great hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in this beautiful apartment in the heart of Zermatt.

The attention to detail, cleanliness of the apartment, the beautiful bed linen plus all the welcome goodies were fantastic, and really helped to make our holiday one to remember.

Nothing was too much trouble.

Hoping it won't be too long before we return.

Do hope that we will be able to welcome you back soonish and very best wishes to you all for the summer. Lizzie and Angus

At home in Zermatt

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked more of our stay here in Zermatt! From arrival to departure, our every need was met, above and beyond expectation. In fact, even prior to our arrival, Lizzie spent time speaking on Skype with us, ensuring our stay was the best it could be. Lizzie met us at the train, pointed out landmarks throughout the village, gave us a working tour of the apartment, checked on us throughout the week, and was there to help us with departure. Our family walked in to the spacious, bright, beautufully decorated apartment, and immediately felt at home. The freshly baked cake certainly helped! What a beautiful touch. It was Christmas week, and Lizzie had gone to the trouble of ensuring we had a gorgeous Christmas tree, decorations, and festive treats on each bed. The apartment is spotlessly clean, spacious, has everything you could need and is great value. It's location is superb, with spectacular views of the Matterhorn, and across the village, and easy access to the village shops, ski rentals and mountain access. Beyond these practicalities though, is the warm welcome, generous friendly hosts and picture perfect location. Definitely highly recommend this gem!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Beck for such a warm and generous review. I am sure you know how much Angus and I enjoyed meeting you all and I'm just sorry that this time Angus' injury prevented him from skiing with you all. But it gives us both so much pleasure to see our apartments being used by our guests as their "Zermatt home" and to know that our efforts to help people get the best out of their time here are appreciated because I do think that service set us apart from many self-catered holidays. I hope that we will be able to welcome you back here again one day but in the meantime, very best wishes to you all, Lizzie and Angus

A True Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

Chez Nous is indeed a lovely home away from home. The three bedroom layout of Mischabel was perfect for my family of four and tastefully appointed. The apartment was clean, bright, airy, with spectacular views of the Matterhorn. The radiant floor heating made it feel even more cozy, especially after a day of skiing. We loved the location too. It was a short and scenic walk to the center of town.

This was my family's first ski trip to Zermatt, traveling from the US. Lizzie was so helpful with getting us set up for the perfect ski vacation. She was like having a personal concierge service and more! From meeting us at the train station and taxiing us to the apt, to making our restaurant reservations on and off the mountain, setting up mountain tours (with friendly and professional guides), giving us 24/7 access to her wealth of knowledge of the Zermatt and Cervinia area, arraigning help with our ski luggage from the train station, and so much more. To top everything off, Lizzie is an outstanding baker. When we first arrived at the apartment, there was the most delicious lemon cake greeting us in the kitchen.

Thank you for everything Lizzie (and Angus---sorry we didn't get a chance to meet you. Hope your knee is healing well!) We will forever have happy memories of our vacation in Zermatt!!

Eileen, Chris, Michael and Matthew

Owner's Response: Oh Eileen thank you! What a lovely review and I'm so glad that your first trip to Zermatt was such a success and that you, Chris and the boys had a good holiday here using Chez Nous as your base. I think I said to you when you arrived that I sometimes treat The Matterhorn rather like a child and desperately want it to "behave well" when we have visitors - so I am so glad that as well as the snow you had some clear days in which to see it in all its glory and it was great to hear that Chris got back to Cervinia after all this time. Very best wishes to you all and I hope that we will be able to welcome you back at some point in the future. Enjoy 2016! Lizzie and Angus (who is recovering well thank you!)

great apartment, location & view

  • 5 of 5

Love Zermatt in the summer. Mischabel is a fantastic base to explore Zermatt and the mountains, and when you come home the view is fantastic and the apartment very comfortably furnished with all you could need. Love it!

Top notch apartment. Wonderful owners on site.

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental property was top notch. Lizzie and Angus, the owners/managers, live in the same building and are always available. The apartment (they have 2 rental properties, we stayed in the larger one - Chez Nous - Mischabel, the 3BD, 3BTH) is tastefully decorated, and fully furnished/equipped. The bedrooms/bathrooms are very confortable. The kitchen is very complete (my wife is an amateur cook and praised the kitchen). The unit looks almost brand new (true to the pictures in their website/listing). It is a kid/family friendly unit. The view (one of the reasons why I chose the apartment) is spectacular - direct views of the Matterhorn.

The location is great - right in the center of Zermatt and within walking distance to every activity in town. As for Lizzie and Angus, they are wonderful - they helped us at arrival/departure (met us at train station and arranged transportation), welcomed us into the apartment with unexpected food goodies, and were always available during our stay to help us/guide us.

In short, I hope we can return to Zermatt and stay at Chez Nous.

Owner's Response: Oh thank you Felipe - for taking the time to do a review of your stay and for writing such a nice one! We really enjoyed having you all "Chez Nous" and seeing the apartment used as a base for a family gathering - we have tried hard to make both our apartments places that people feel at home in so it means a lot to us that your experience matched what we are wanted to achieve and we always try and keep the apartments "fresh" so that even for people who come back regularly (as some people do) they feel familiar but with the odd "new touch"! I do hope that we will be able to welcome you back to stay with us but in the meantime very best wishes to you all from us both, Lizzie and Angus

Location

Car: not necessary

Zermatt deserves its reputation as one of the world's best mountain resorts - there is a magical quality to it all year round.

The Klein Matterhorn cable car is the highest cable car in Europe (3,883m at the summit) and on a clear day gives you simply breathtaking views out towards Mont Blanc and its surrounding peaks. Alternatively start your day on the Gornergrat railway which originally opened in 1898 and is the second highest railway in Europe (after the Jungfrau) - a great feat of Swiss engineering. From the top of Gornergrat you get a sweeping panorama of 29 'four thousanders' (mountains over 4,000m) including the Monte Rosa which is the highest mountain in Switzerland.

In the winter your lift pass covers the Zermatt and Cervinia and includes some 360km of marked runs but if that isn't enough you can also ice skate, sledge, hike, snow shoe, try curling or simply swim and relax in one of the village hotel's wonderful wellness areas.

In the summer there is glorious hiking, climbing, a fun park for the children, cycling, tennis, squash, paragliding and plenty of places to have a picnic by a lake.

At any time of year Zermatt has something to offer and its mountain restaurants are second to none in the Alps so the gourmet will not be disappointed either.
