“Stunning view, lovely well appointed apartment”
Reviewed August 11, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This was our second time staying here, but our first time in summer. Le Petit is beautifully appointed, and the name doesn’t do it justice; it's a very decent size with two bedrooms / bathrooms and plenty of inside and outside living space. Very much a home-away-from-home with lots of thought to the design of each room and to furniture and fittings. The living room is a wonderful place to relax with a magnificent uninterrupted view of the Matterhorn through large glass windows, a state-of-the-art television and sound system, perfect for evenings in – and of course WIFI so you can keep in touch if you choose to. The kitchen is very well equipped with modcons and even has its own Nespresso machine: we cooked up some very nice breakfasts and dinners. The double bed in our room (lovely and quiet) was extremely comfortable with a nice modern en-suite bathroom (with bath, perfect to relax aching limbs) and a little side-terrace. Then there is also the main terrace that leads off the kitchen and living room with nice comfortable modern furniture and that Matterhorn view again, nothing quite like waking up and scanning the rock faces with binoculars to spot climbers or sitting outside in the sun relaxing after a hard day in the mountains! There’s plenty of space in the apartment to hang sports clothes and right at the entrance to the building, a good-sized utility room to store guests' hiking boots and bikes (and skis/boots), a lot of thought into creating effective storage. Also a nice touch is that Chez Nous provides guests with chocolate snacks for skiing as well as packets of tissues and maps of the area – and even slippers, were very welcome in winter.

Although “Le Petit” is smaller than the other apartments, it’s ideal for a family of four or for two couples. The location, just 5-10 minutes from the church and the main street, is within easy walking distance of the lifts of the shuttle bus; a small supermarket and bread shop just around the corner. Lizzie and Angus are such excellent hosts, going that extra mile to welcome you and make you feel at home, and after many years in Zermatt, they have many top tips of hikes to go on, mountain restaurants to visit, different activities to try out (paragliding or a heli-tour over the Matterhorn for instance!) or where to party in the evenings. Lizzie and Angus are always on-hand, very organised, helpful and friendly, nothing too much trouble. I highly recommend staying here, we had a truly terrific week!

Oh thank you Anna - for taking the time to do such a generous and full review - it really helps future guests to get a proper feel from people who have stayed with us what to expect when they arrive (and not simply having to rely on what we say!). It was lovely to see you getting so much out of your summer week in Zermatt and we will really look forward to welcoming you back in the winter to ski.
Very best wishes to you for the rest of summer, Lizzie and Angus

Oh thank you so much Meleah - it was lovely to meet you all and I am so glad that you all felt at home "Chez Nous".
When we were setting up the apartments Angus and I spent a lot of time trying to figure out what should go where but I don't think either of us realised how much pleasure we would get from our guests' appreciation of our apartments - so feedback like this means a great deal to us and I hope that we can continue to keep the apartments looking fresh as well as familiar - and the great bonus is that one thing we can be sure of is that the wonderful view of that amazing mountain will never change!
Best wishes to you both for the remainder of 2015 and I hope that we will be able to welcome you back at some stage.

“Best beds in Switzerland”
Reviewed September 21, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

After four weeks in Italy and Switzerland we really appreciated the beds at this fantastic self catering accommodation. We were two couples traveling together and also after many hotel rooms enjoyed the ability to relax in a home like we would have at home. While we didn't actually cook any meals, we did enjoy cheese platters and eggs for breakfast. Lizzie did wonders to make sure we had everything we needed and we felt very well looked after. In addition to her legendary Orange cake, she texted us each day to suggest itineries that suited the weather and conditions.

Thank you Jennifer for taking the time to do a review for us in the middle of your trip. It was lovely to meet you all and I'm so glad that Le Petit was a nice base for you while you were in Zermatt - we have tried hard to make it feel more like a home than a rental and Angus will be delighted with the feedback about the beds- endless discussion about beds were obviously worthwhile! I hope the rest of European tour goes well and safe home to New Zealand when the time comes. Best wishes, Lizzie

“What is better than perfect? Chez Nous - Le Petit!”
Reviewed September 21, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Staying in Le Petit at the end of our 2 week trip with my parents couldn't have been better! The chalet was a wonderful place to call 'home' during our visit to Zermatt, it was well equipped, comfy beds, cozy lounge and the view of the Matterhorn was the icing on the cake for all of us - this was no comparison of course to Lizzie's lemon cake! Lizzie helped make our stay unforgettable and easy from the pick up at the station, bowl of fruit, and no fuss reservations for wonderful meals in town. The location was ideal with an easy walk to a few bakeries for breakfast, the grocery store for essentials and the high street for shopping! We usually opt for self-catering apts and this is definitely our favorite - we highly recommend it!! Thank you again Lizzie for your hospitality and helping make our trip memorable in our Zermatt home away home!

“Probably the best self catering I have ever stayed in”
Reviewed August 7, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

From the initial enquiry through to our departure Lizzie proved to be an excellent host. (We did not meet Angus). Booking was simple and Lizzie met us at the station (we travelled by train from Zurich). Everything was just as described, the furnishings and equipments were of a high quality. Lizzie is a good source of information for walks and restaurants nearby.
We are older folk and Lizzie helped with luggage and suggestions for easier walks. She arranged the taxi for us when we left.

Thank you Barry and Jenny - it was lovely to meet you all and see you enjoying your tour of The Alps and I'm glad that Le Petit lived up to its billing. We know what a difference there can sometimes be between the photos and the real thing so it is really nice to know that you felt the apartment was was one the best self-catered units you have stayed in - I will report back to Angus and am sure he will be glad to know that standards don't slip in his absence!

Very best wishes to you all for the rest of your summer, Lizzie
