About the property

Complimentary Concierge Service - Click Contact Manager for More Information

Welcome to Zermatt’s newest luxury ski chalet - The 600sq foot 5 bedroom Backstage Loft. This incredibly luxurious and unique vacation rental has one of the best locations in Zermatt. It is less than a 3 minute walk to the main Matterhorn Ski Lift and one minutes walk from the end of the ski slope making it almost ski in ski out - Something that is virtually impossible to find in the beautiful car free town of Zermatt. It is located in a quieter residential area of Zermatt yet just 5 minutes walk to the centre of the village where you will find a wonderful selection of beautiful shops, restaurants and nightlife. There are also lovely views to the Matterhorn from the sitting room, some of the bedrooms and from the indoor/outdoor Jacuzzi.

The Backstage loft which was designed and conceptualized by the very well known local artist - Heinz Julen is truly unique. The ambience of the Loft has a wonderful balance between contemporary art and traditional cosiness. All the furniture and fittings in the chalet were designed and made by Heinz Julen in his Studio in Zermatt and each piece is both beautiful and unique. The loft is truly stunning in every way but the overriding sense you get when you are staying here is of light. The main chalet features floor to ceiling windows both inside and outside allowing the wonderful light of Zermatt to flood into the beautiful interiors.

The open plan living, dining and kitchen area is particularly beautiful as if features double height floor to ceiling glass windows with views to the lovely Vispa river, Matterhorn, surrounding mountains and village. The centre point of the dining area is a stunning and unique chandelier made by Heinz Julen. With the press of a button it magically moves towards the ceiling allowing plenty of room for socialising should you wish to have a party in the Loft.

The hot tub is also very unique. With another switch of a button, the glass windows move aside changing the indoor hot tub to an outdoor one! But whether you choose to bath indoors or outdoors, the views to the Matterhorn from here are always stunning.

The Backstage loft features 5 en-suite bedrooms each with a queen sized bed, shower room and flat screened TV. 3 of the bedrooms are located in the main house and the other 2 bedrooms are located in a beautiful authentic 500 year old separate stubli next door which can be accessed by an underground tunnel or directly from the outside. This chalet which was one of the very first to be built in Zermatt has been uniquely preserved. All the wood in the house is original and many of the traditional features have been retained including the actual roof.

The lower floor of the Backstage Loft features a state of the art cinema room and a wellness and fitness room with the latest computerised Techno gym equipment. From here you have a lovely view of the river.

One of the nicest chalets in Zermatt

  • 5 of 5

We booked a last minute ski vacation to this chalet. It was a very centrally located near the ski lift. We really liked the decor and the staff were really great. We were surprised to find such a nice chalet last minute and we really would love to return again in the future.

The Backstage Loft was exceptional.

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost, Oliver and Maria were fantastic! The Backstage Loft was exceptional. For the past 2 years, Linda provided the most outstanding, exceptional, over the top customer service imagined. Linda made the process of securing the villa simple and seamless. A special thanks to her for support, day 1......commendable. I hope to work with Linda again.

Zermatt was quaint, cultural, scenic and along with Backstage an awesome and memorable experience. It proved to be a great birthday celebration. Most of establishments we visited were nice, particularly Chez Heini was a phenomenal. The atmosphere, ambiance, food quality, service was unparallel.

But there is a lot more to Zermatt then just the Matterhorn. It is one of the only car free resorts in the world and has the most wonderful selection of restaurants both on the mountain and in the village. There is also fabulous shopping with a wide variety of amazing sports shops, boutiques and designer jewellery shops. Zermatt is also the highest mountain resort in Europe and as a result you are always guaranteed snow and good ski conditions.

The other wonderful thing about Zermatt is safety. It is virtually crime free and because of its position at the end of a valley it is very insulated from the rest of the world.

Some of the amazing things to do in Zermatt include:

Winter Skiing

Summer Skiing

Snow boarding

Cross Country Skiing

Hiking in Winter

Gorge Adventure


Snow Shoe Hiking

Ice Skating


Summer Hiking

Summer Tennis


Glacier Paradise And The Gonergrat train
