As a ski destination, Zermatt located in the Canton of Valais is one of the best offerings over 350 km of ski runs that are linked to the resorts of Cervinia and Val Tournenche in Italy via the Klein Matterhorn.

The après ski is lively with plenty of live music both on and off the mountain.

The summer months in Zermatt are even more beautiful. Endless stunning mountain trails will bring you past waterfalls, lakes, valleys, wildlife, and mountains covered in beautiful wildflowers.

Area description

Chalet Carmen is perched on a hillside overlooking the village. It is accessed by a tunnel with a lift bringing you directly to the front door of the apartment. The entrance is located just 200 meters from the bottom of the main ski run into the village at the foot of the klein Matterhorn lift station, thus making it one of the rare "ski-in" chalets in Zermatt, with a ski lift very close to its doorstep. The Church square with its shops and boutiques is located just a 5 minute walk away (please note that it is not technically "ski-in" since you ski to within 200m of the entrance tunnel).

Zermatt is located in one of the highest resorts in the Alps ensuring the best possible ski conditions. Dominated by the Matterhorn and its surrounding scenery, it combines, great year round skiing (313km of ski pistes) with a beautiful car free village, incredible restaurants, lively Après ski and fantastic shopping.

As well as being famous for the Matterhorn, Zermatt boasts an incredible selection of mountain restaurants. The skiing is world class with four major interconnected areas including Sunnega/Rothorn, The Gornergrat, Klein Matterhorn and lastly due to its location on the Swiss/Italian border, Cervinia in Italy.

Everything went well with our time away at Chalet Carmen
Everything went well with our time away at Chalet Carmen

Dear Linda, We have all arrived home and are back in our routine. From my perspective everything went well with our time away at Chalet Carmen, and with the arrangements which your staff provided for us during our stay. There were a few minor glitches which needed attention after we arrived, but the staff was attentive and responsive to our requests for assistance. Everyone with whom we interacted at each step of the planning and execution of our vacation activities were, to a person, very pleasant to deal with and helpful. In summary, I believe that we were all pleased with our stay and the arrangements which Exceptional Villas provided for us. I would recommend your company to other interested persons.
