L'Etoile is the newest addition to the Chez Nous group. Named after a pretty little peak to the west of Zermatt, this is a truly pretty one bedroom apartment (and can sleep 3 people if you use the sofa bed). The apartment looks straight out on to the Matterhorn and, as well as the stunning views, it has all the signature Chez Nous touches that transform our apartments from simply being "holiday rentals" into a real home for your stay in Zermatt.
Great care has been taken to create a truly welcoming atmosphere: the apartment has a bright and sunny kitchen/living room and the generous balcony that wraps around the building (with access from the bedroom and the living room) adds to the feeling of space as you look out at the view. There is one double bedroom (with a superking-sized bed) and the sofa in the living room can also be used a sofa bed. The 55" home cinema system is complete with all UK channels and Apple TV and the dining area comfortably seats 6 people so you can enjoy meals at home and then in the evenings (or on bad weather days) you can get cosy watching a film or reading your book and when it is time to sleep the beds are super-comfortable. We also make sure that "the basics" are in stock so that you can make tea/coffee and have a glass of wine without having to go shopping straight away!
If you are part of a larger group of family and friends then combining L'Etoile with one of our other apartments can allow you all to be together in the same building but free to retreat to your own space when needed. See our other listings for Le Corbassiere (sleeps 6), The Mischabel (sleeps 6-8) and Le Petit (sleeps 4).
All the Chez Nous apartments have 180 degree views straight out on to The Matterhorn, over towards Gornergrat and up the Trift valley . One of the only remaining fields in the village is just in front of us which gives a welcome feeling of space despite being so close to all the restaurants, the church bridge and the lift stations/bus.
Lizzie and Angus have lived in Zermatt for the last 10 years and will help you get as much as possible organised before you arrive (ski schools, restaurant reservations, lift passes, help with child care etc) so that you are free to enjoy your holiday. Once you get here you will be met at the station and brought up to your apartment by electro-taxi and our on-the-ground concierge will help you settle in and will be on hand to help with any questions throughout your stay.
The only practical point to bear in mind is that direct access to our building from street level (when you arrive and leave) 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.
