Chalet Ulysse Zermatt, Switzerland Sleeps 12
What we love
A spacious apartment with stunning views of the Matterhorn which can be enjoyed even whilst in the swimming pool!
Occupying the ground floor of Chalet Shalimar is Elena; the perfect family apartment sleeping 8 people in four bedrooms. All of the bedrooms are twin bedrooms and have breath taking views of the world renowned Matterhorn peak as well as en-suite bathrooms with separate showers. Equipped with the finest Egyptian cotton linen, bathrobes, slippers and Aqua di Parma products this luxury apartment provides the perfect alpine retreat.
There is a large open plan living and dining room with floor to ceiling sliding doors opening out onto a lovely garden and terrace. Overlooking the dining area is the open plan kitchen where guests can watch whilst their chef prepares the finest cuisine throughout the week. Bright and spacious there is plenty of room for all the family to relax and unwind after a hard day on the slopes. Whilst the adults enjoy a glass of champagne on the terrace and take in the wonderful views of the Matterhorn, the children can play in the snow right in front of the chalet.
At the heart of Chalet Shalimar is the wellness area and spa. Elena shares these facilities with the luxury apartment Alex which sleeps 12 people and occupies the two top floors of the chalet. There is a sauna, hammam, massage room and a wonderful indoor swimming pool.
Elena is nestled in the enclave of Winklematten and advanced skiers (snow permitting) can ski to the chalet. The nearby gondola at a 10 minute walk can take you to the Matterhorn Glacier paradise. The hustle and bustle of the centre of Zermatt is a 15 minute scenic walk away or a short ride in an electric taxi.
When taken on a fully catered basis, the apartment is staffed with a professional chef and host as well as a dedicated concierge. When taken on a self-catered basis there is a daily housekeeping service as well as a concierge who will be on hand to assist with any finer details throughout the week.
The service was out of this world, the staff could not be more helpful if they tried. I particularly liked my coffee in bed each morning. Take me back any day!
