Unlike with many of the chalets in Zermatt the owners have avoided the minimal white look so that the chalet has kept its' rustic charm.
It is situated in a beautiful elevated position, with uninterrupted views of the Matterhorn, in preserved tranquil surroundings where the natural wildlife roam freely.
The chalet is just a 5 minutes walk to the main Klein Matterhorn departure station and to the centre of the village.
Access to the chalet is by its own tele cabin but it is also accessible by a well maintained footpath through a wooded area.
The chalet comprises 5 double bedrooms, 3 en-suite and 1 extra bathroom and a separate WC. All of the bathrooms were renovated in 2012. There is a 6th bedroom with bunks for extra guests.
The spacious lounge has a large wood-burning fireplace, comprising ample comfortable seating for 12 people, overlooking the terrace and garden with its breath taking views of the Matterhorn. It is equipped with plasma TV, DVD, CD/Radio and has a wireless internet connection.
Separated from the lounge by glass doors, the dining area has a long table that seats 12 and has a feature window overlooking the surrounding mountains and village of Zermatt. The modern kitchen adjoins the dining area.
There is also a tropicarium sauna downstairs in the chalet which is perfect therapy after a day of skiing, with its' adjoining relaxation area. Massage and reflexology can be arranged in the chalet on request.
Chalet les Ecureuils is catered by our professional chef with many years of experience in the hospitality industry. She draws on her experience of worldwide travel and international gastronomy to bring you an unforgettable dining experience. She is happy to cater the menu to your individual needs.
Continental and/or full English breakfast is available and prepared for you by the chef every morning. Afternoon tea with home-made cakes is provided daily for when you return to the chalet.
