Chalet Bergheim is a magical, private, ski-in/ski-out mountain chalet, built in 1933 in traditional walliser style wooden construction. Renovated in 2014, the chalet is furnished with bespoke, hand made furniture and natural materials but with all of the features you would expect in a modern mountain chalet including free wi-fi throughout, a whirlpool bath and open log fire. The chalet is completely surrounded by nature with virtually no neighbours in sight, and you don't have to share the property with anyone! Outside there is a large private garden and terrace, with a beautiful natural 8 person cedar hottub, fire pit and bbq facilities, perfect for soaking up the sunshine. The chalet is sold on a self-catering basis but a catering service or fresh food delivery may be available on request.
One of the only free-standing chalets in Zermatt, the chalet sleeps 6 adults comfortably in 3 double bedrooms with 2 bathrooms (one with separate whirlpool room overlooking Matterhorn). With additional beds the maximum occupancy is 9 (max 7 adults, 1 children and 1 baby).
Nestled in the tree line at 1750m and overlooking the rooftops of Zermatt, the chalet is directly on the Sunegga ski-piste giving access to the 450 kilometers of pistes offered by the best known resort in Switzerland. Ski hard all day, grab a glass of wine and sit in front of the open fire or enjoy the evening sunshine on the terrace taking in the majestic views of the Matterhorn, that for us is the perfect day.
Or in the Summer, take the mountain bike up to a mountain lake for a swim, hit some single trail on the way down, go for a hike in the woods and then end the day with sausages on the bbq and a drink or two around a camp fire in the fire pit.
If like us, you are in love with the mountains and you value stunning natural surroundings, your own space, and a host of amazing adventures on your doorstep then you will fall in love with this place.

The chalet is in a stunning location above the village of Zermatt with dramatic views of the majestic Matterhorn. Far enough away to feel remote but close enough to access the many amenities Zermatt has to offer.
- Direct on the ski-piste from Sunegga
- 20-25min uphill walk from the centre of Zermatt
- Nearby restaurants within a short walk from the house
- Surrounded by nature with very few neighbours
- 400m from the nearest road access point in Winter (access by cleared footpath). Direct access to chalet by taxi in summer.
- Hike and MTB direct from the front door in the summer
- South facing for afternoon/evening sunshine
Zermatt is a car-free village and hence access by private car to the property is not possible.
IMPORTANT IN WINTER: In winter it's only possible to access the property to within 400m by taxi, and after that you must go by foot on a prepared winter trail (direct access by taxi possible in summer). From the town to the chalet it is a 20-25min walk uphill. There is however an elevator during lift opening hours which reduces the amount of uphill and walking time! From the ski piste to the chalet there are steps. Prior to guest arrival we clear the steps of snow and lay grit. However, should there be snowfall then snow clearance may be required during your stay. Should there be insufficient snow on the piste next to the house, it is 400m walk to a snow-sure piste. In winter free luggage transfer is available Saturdays 10am until 4pm unless very poor weather conditions. You therefore must plan to be in Zermatt before 3:15pm at the latest on arrival day!
