    Property description
    Condo/Apartment – 
    4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    This chalet is full of wooden charm, with a country farmhouse feel to it. It is 4 star because three of the double bedrooms are slightly smaller than average, there are three bathrooms for four bedrooms, and the dining table is in the open-plan kitchen area. However these aspects are more than made up for by its cozy charm and location among other things, thus making this chalet quite unique and excellent value. With its sloping wooden ceilings and extensive paneling, this cozy duplex attic chalet apartment offers 4 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (two en-suite, one with Jacuzzi bath), a high ceilinged living room with wood fire, an open plan kitchen with dining and bar area, a mezzanine floor with a second living area, and sunny south and east facing balconies with plunging views to the rive... more

    Additional Location Information
    Carmen is a superbly situated duplex attic apartment in a chalet which is perched on a hilltop. Access is very convenient via a tunnel lift which is 200 metres away from the Matterhorn Express base station and, in winter, the end point of the main resort ski run, thus making this in winter one of the few "ski-in" properties in Zermatt (please note that it is not technically "ski-in" since you ski to within 200m of the entrance tunnel). The church square with its boutiques and restaurants is just five minutes away in the other direction.

    The village Zermatt, lies at the foot of the Matterhorn, the most photographed mountain in the world. Zermatt epitomizes the image of Switzerland: high-alpine, awe-inspiring and original. Thirty eight 4,000-metre mountains are grouped around this word-famous health resort, which has been visited by mountaineers from all around the world since the first successful ascent of the Matterhorn in 1865. Restaurants and Spas are world-cl...

This was our first visit to Zermatt - so we were not quite sure what to expect, especially in Summer. My uncertainties were immediately relieved when arriving at the train station - as the staff from Mountain Exposure were there waiting for us with a large taxi ready to go.

We arrived at the chalet and had a quick personal tour - and were really impressed by the size and layout of Chalet Carmen. Our family of 6 had a holiday of a lifetime and I can thank the staff at mountain exposure more for all their assistance throughout the stay.

Whilst there in summer we put our kids into ski school, white water rafted in a local stream, hiked the mountainside, flew with Air Zermatt helicopters around the Matterhorn and jumped off a 3.5km high mountain to paraglide back down to Zermatt.

Management response:

Dear Guest, thank you very much for this review. We completely agree with you Summer in Zermatt is almost as exciting as Winter and it has never been easier to... more

What a fantastic trip! Chalet Carmen was perfect for our needs. The staff were helpful, kind and knowledgable of the area. The food was delicious in true Zermatt style! What a good place to retreat to after a hard days skiing. more
