About Therese Moorhouse

We are the Moorhouse family - Tony, Therese, Jamie (11) and Emily (4). We are all British but Therese grew up in Australia so has dual nationality. We live in central London so our mountain retreat gives us a fabulous break from the bustle of London.

Therese Moorhouse purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Therese Moorhouse chose Zinal

This property was bought off plan and furnishing it was a wonderful labour of love for Therese. We wanted the fittings and furnishings to be super comfortable and stylish so upgraded many features from the original designs including a better kitchen and bathrooms. We were thrilled by the standard of workmanship of the Swiss builders and the apartment is better than we had dreamed of. We have shared so many wonderful holidays with our extended family and friends in Zinal.

What makes this apartment unique

Definitely the location. We are right in the centre of town but also very close to the ski lift so getting up the mountain is so very easy. The water in Zinal is gorgeous. Its like bathing in Evian everyday. The view from the living areas is fabulous and its wonderful to be greeted by this in the mornings. My husband loves the view from the master bathroom.

Lovely Clean and comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property in an excellent location for the resort.

All rooms were beautifully furnished and comfortable with fresh, good quality linen.

Great space for a family and nice and quiet with good sound proofing so we all slept brilliantly.

Kitchen well equipped for those evenings for cooking and staying in.

The owner was super helpful regarding keys/handover etc.

I would definitely recommend.

Thank you again for a lovely week.

Fantastic in every way

  • 5 of 5

This flat is absolutely perfect and located in a fantastic village nestled within the Swiss Alps. The apartment was very clean, spacious and comfortable. It had a very modern feel and was in excellent condition. The bedrooms were large, the bathrooms were luxurious and the kitchen was well equipped. It came with underground parking which was very convenient. The apartment is ideally located within Zinal and in a very quiet spot. It is on the top two floors of the apartment block and so has stunning views of the surrounding peaks. We visited in the summer with a young family to do some summer hiking. Zinal is perfect for walkers - you can go on walks in every direction straight from the apartment. Locally we hiked to the copper mine (an hour and a half away and joined a weekly tour), and made it to our first mountain hut (a couple of hours away). We also took the village cable car (located just a few minutes away from the property) for more walking and to view the paragliders out in force at the weekend - a stunning site with the ice-capped mountain backdrop. We also spotted the Matterhorn. A short drive away we hiked to a glacial lake and glacier, and also caught a funicular to start a hike to a walk-in only hotel, the Weisshorn. The walks were all varied and fantastic and achievable with a 7, 10 and 12 year old. The village itself had all the amenities you would need and is found at the top of a long stunning valley, so you avoid through-traffic. It also has a wonderful 'old' part with original and ancient chalets, as well as a helpful tourist office. I would highly recommend this property and village - the mountains, the views, the hiking and the flat were all absolutely perfect. We are already planning to return.

Beautiful apartment in a pretty alpine vilage

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this property. Great location close to cable car and all village amenities.

Check whether Zinal is the right resort for your skiing abilities. Great for off piste adventures but limited piste skiing if snow conditions poor.

Beautiful home, in a quaint mountain town

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 3 nights in this gorgeous apartment! It was exactly as pictured and communicated by Therese, the owner. She provided excellent communication beforehand and we were able to contact her husband while we were there.

The house had a gorgeous view of the mountains from pretty much every room in the house! It was very clean and there were plenty of appliances to use for cooking most of our meals at home. (toaster, coffee maker, immersion blender, pots and pans). We enjoyed playing some of the card games that she had the house stocked with and our children enjoyed watching DVDs, reading books, and playing with the toys she provided us with.

The city of Zinal itself is very small, but had a friendly atmosphere! Very crisp, fresh, clean air and lots of cute shops! Definitely perfect for our getaway to go skiing! Thank you so much for letting us stay in your home!

Great Summer Stay in Zinal!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our summer stay in this well equipped and very comfortable apartment. There was plenty of room for the three couples who comprised our group, to cook and relax together. Benefits of the apartment included central location to all amenities; wonderful views from the balcony and breakfast table to snow capped mountains; peace and tranquility of the property; and the owner, who was most helpful with my list of queries. Would love to return for future visits to Zinal!

Simply an amazing place!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is fantastic. We came after having had a great family ski holiday and decided to try the mountains in the summer (which we never do). I cannot say enough about the accommodation or the town.

The 'apartment' is beautifully furnished and immaculately clean. There is plenty of room and it has all the mod cons you need in the kitchen as well as Wi-fi, DVD, flat screen for all the wind down time (there is even a WM). The kitchen is a lovely red bespoke design and the living area enhanced by unbelievable views of the mountains and town.

Zinal: You are bang in the middle of the little quaint town and 5 minutes walk from the lift (10 if you have kids and ski boots in tow). We love the skiing and is apparently a favourite with the Swiss. We were amazed that there was so much to do in the summer- apart from walking and the obvious mountain biking, there are tons of activities in for everyone - festivals, tennis, swimming in a nearby town and a water slide pool/spa 40 minutes away.

We will be back! Thank you!

Zinal is Switzerland's highest inhabited town resting at an altitude of 1670m. It lies amidst a magnificent mountain landscape surrounded by three 4000-metre-peaks, in the French speaking region of Valais. It is authentically Swiss and family friendly. There are many restaurants/ bars, two ski hire shops, two supermarkets, a winter crèche, beauty salon and a church.

Most of the skiing is between 2000 - 3000m, guaranteeing a long ski season. The region has over 220 km of pistes, 44 lifts, plus vast off-piste and high altitude skiing, catering for all standards. One ski-pass covers the five skiing areas of Zinal - Grimentz - St-Luc - Chandolin and Vercorin and a free shuttle bus operates between them. Within the Zinal resort, there are 9 lifts with 70 kms of pistes.

In summer, Zinal is perfect for nature holidays away from the masses. Hiking, mountain biking, climbing, golfing, horse riding, water parks, thermal pools, tennis, wine tours, it is truly Switzerland's unspoilt gem.
