I fell in love with this ski chalet as soon as I walked in. Chalet Heidi is, as its name suggests, an impossibly cute chalet, with a really central location in the very heart of Zermatt. It comes self-catered, meaning you are free to sample Zermatt’s famously fantastic restaurants as you wish, and is kitted out with every possible mod con. Just gorgeously chocolate-box.

It is very much old Alpine meets new, lots of weathered wood panelling and wooden ceilings but with modern spotlights, a lovely old wood burner with a modern glass door, granite walls but designer furnishings. There is an LCD flat screen TV with DVD and cable, plus a kitchen with sleek, modern appliances.

There are three pretty bedrooms in this luxury ski chalet apartment, none of which is huge but they all feel perfectly cosy. The biggest has a double bed and en-suite bathroom with shower, the second biggest can either be a double or two singles and has a bathroom next door, while the third is the smallest but has the biggest en-suite bathroom with big bath and rainfall shower. Bathrooms come complete with bathrobes and slippers.

First floor of Chalet Castor

Given that Chalet Heidi is small, it is a self-catered chalet. But it has a perfectly equipped kitchen and you do, of course, have a rich choice of world class restaurants on your doorstep, in the heart of Zermatt.

There is no spa at the apartment.

The apartment is perfectly child friendly, although there are no specific facilities for them.

The cute interiors and the plum location.

The bedrooms are not big, but they feel really cosy and mountain-hideaway. Also, the fact the chalet is self-catered might not suit some.


This Zermatt chalet apartment takes up the whole of the first floor of a properly traditional Swiss chalet, right in the heart of Zermatt between the church and the school and near the main shopping street. It faces south and has wooden balconies on all sides that are bathed in sunshine, with views over a rushing mountain stream and up to the mountains beyond.


The nearest airports are Geneva (quickest by car), Zurich (quickest by train) and Sion. Transfers can be arranged by the chalet.

Don’t miss lunch at Chez Vrony, one of the very best mountain restaurants in the Alps and possibly my favourite!

Remember, I have visited all the chalets we feature so can give you totally unbiased, independent advice on all of them. The prices I quote are also the list prices quoted by the chalets themselves, so there is no advantage in going to the chalets direct.
