Condo/Apartment
Zermatt's internationally acclaimed architect, Heinz Julen, designed this extraordinary double-level 260m2 penthouse. With concepts such as a fireplace nesting in the middle of the living-room window, and original hand-made furniture (including Julen's famous chandeliers and chairs), it has featured in several designer magazines. Very airy in feel, due to the extensive use of glass roofs, the chalet has a unique bird's nest view of the village and the Mischabel mountains. Access is a 2 minute walk from the top of the Omnia Hotel lifts, for which you will have a private key.

Prime Zermatt accomodations
The Heinz Julen Penthouse is a unique property with stunning views of the city and mountain peaks. The deck on the main level is a fantastic place to rest and relax after exploring the beautiful trails and all that Zermatt has to offer (the home is at the base of a spectacularly beautiful trail allowing you to hike directly from your place of stay!!).. The customer service of the Mountain Exposure team was white glove. They met us on check in and check out to make sure all was in order. i highly recommend and can't wait to return to the penthouse.

Fantastischer Blick und tolle Location
Wir sind zu 8 und genießen die Aussicht und den zentralen Zugang zum Ort. Hoch über Zermatt gelegen und umgeben von Terrassen und vielen Fenstern. Die Wohnung ist sehr schön und hell, auf drei Stockwerken, mit Sauna, Waschmaschine und Kicker, Schober Sitzgruppe und Langem Esstisch. Sie wirkt auf den Photos größer als sie ist, trotzdem ausreichend aber auch schon etwas in die Jahre gekommen. Whirlpool im master bedroom, zwei Schlafzimmern mit innenliegendem Bad mit Dusche. Im Untergeschoss ein kleines Kinder Schlafzimmer.

Perfect modern chalet in Zermatt
We were a big group so we rented both Heinz Julen Loft and Heiz Julen Penthouse and it was perfect, both houses were above our expectation. Also the whole team and concierge was always very nice and helpful with everything needed. I definitly recommend both houses to anyone.

Dream vacation in Zermatt!
We loved our stay at the Heinz Julen Penthouse over February vacation. Mountain Exposure took great care of us! Especially Sarah and chef John. No matter what we requested they found it! The team took care of dining reservations, booking our fantastic ski guides Gioia and Federico, transfers to/from train, in room massages and everything else to make our trip seamless. Note that the HJ Penthouse is atop a hill so probably better for those without any disabilities but it’s right in town and central to lifts. Highly recommend for those seeking a winter European adventure.

Best Chalet in Zermatt
My Family and I just returned from beautiful Zermatt. For the first time we rented a chalet rather than staying in a hotel. The Heinz Julen Penthouse was spectacular! Large enough to accommodate all of our needs and intimately nestled in a hillside in the village. It was ideally placed with easy access to village life and the Gondolas. The villa was unbelievable, cool, modern, airy with every amenity. The concierge service was outstanding from start to finish. A definite “Must Stay”!!

Amazing accommodation
We could not have asked for better accommodation! Beautiful space, lovely views, incredible stay in lovely Zermatt! From the very start of this holiday the welcoming introduction to Zermatt by our most informative host could not have been topped. We were met at the train station and taken to this beautiful, well thought out, accommodation. There is nothing better than having the comfort plus of home away from home and adding amazing beauty! Highly recommend this as a place to see beautiful Zermatt from and enjoy every creature comfort you could want.

Beautiful penthouse, gorgeous view
My husband's family and I stayed at the Heinz-Julen penthouse at the end of September and couldn't have been happier with it. Before we arrived we were notified that the sauna in the penthouse wasn't working and we were not only offered a free upgrade but were also provided passes to the Vernissage spa at the Backstage hotel. When we arrived we were met at the train station by James who helped load all of our luggage into a cart that zipped us up to the base of the entrance. He gave us a tour of the rental and then gave us the most detailed overview of Zermatt. He gave us fantastic tips on hiking, food, skiing, even entertainment. Before he left he gave us his cellphone for any emergencies, or even questions we might have about the penthouse or Zermatt. The rental is beautiful both for the amazing view of the entire valley (sadly not the Matterhorn, but you'll hardly notice!), and also for the unique furniture and art. The place was elegant but cozy and totally stocked with anything we'd need to cook or dine in. My favorite part aside, from all of the glass walls, was the shower in the master suite which is as close to an outdoor shower as you can probably get at that altitude! The penthouse is just minutes from everything including hiking, lifts, restaurants, spas, bars, markets, and shopping. But it's tucked away above the city just enough to feel secluded. I might not recommend it for someone who has limited mobility. The path up to the penthouse is manageable but it's very steep - however the penthouse is completely wheelchair accessible. I would absolutely recommend this rental for a large or smaller group. There were 8 of us but we never felt like we were on top of each other. We loved that each room had its own en suite bathroom and lots of little spaces to curl up with a book or a glass of wine and take in the city without even having to leave the apartment. After a long day of hiking it was especially relaxing to sit together and enjoy a nice fire in the fireplace. Thank you for a wonderful trip - we truly enjoyed ourselves!

Excellent location
Located in the middle of Zermatt it is the best place you can get for a holiday. It has all what you need and more. Good beds and good sleep and rest until the next day with sports and experiences in the magic atmosphere of Zermatt and mountains. It's high above the village so you will have a,spectacular view of Zermatt
