White Pearl Zermatt, Switzerland Sleeps 10+2
What we love
A quirky but fabulous chalet by the well known designer 'Heinz Julen' in a cracking location. Stunning views from the hot tub too!
The Backstage Loft (600 sq.m) sleeps 10 people featuring 5 en-suits bedrooms, two of which are located in the original historic part of the building. Featuring incredible views of the Matterhorn, the Loft sits on the edge of the river in a quiet residential area, less than a 4 minute walk from the Klein Matterhorn Glacier station and a short stroll from the center of Zermatt village.
You enter the chalet at street level where steps lead down into the main hallway and cloakroom. Central to the Backstage Loft is its large, airy, and bright open-plan kitchen, living, and dining area located on this floor within the main structure. This sophisticated entertaining space features an open wood fire and floor-to-ceiling windows that enhance the unique architectural style and charm. The dining table can be winched to the ceiling leaving a great floor space for pre-dinner drinks and canapes or dancing.
The impressive hot tub is located to the side of the main living room, encased in glass affording you spectacular back-drops to fill your senses. If this isn't enough, with the touch of a button the glass wall swings open and the indoor hot tub is magically transformed into an outdoor one.
There is one double bedroom with en-suite shower room is located on this floor, accessed from the main hallway. This bedroom opens onto the wrap around balcony and has a television and safe as is the case for all the bedrooms. Stairs lead to two further stylish bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms located on the top floor of the chalet.
Downstairs from the living space is located a further bedroom with en-suite shower room balcony and separate entrance to the lower street level. A guest toilet as well as a small hammam and sauna are also located on this floor.
Stairs lead up to the fifth master bedroom with separate shower room, located in the adjoining glass-encased converted 700-year-old chalet, the design of which show-cases its original wooden beams. This bedroom has direct access to the terrace and hot tub area outside of the living room.
After an exhilarating day on the slopes guests can take in the latest movie in the chalet's dedicated TV room located on the lower floor of the chalet. This area also has a kitchenette and separate shower room and access through to the gym equipped with a running machine, cross training and weights instillation with views over the river. The ski room with an ample number of innovative heated drying cupboards.
The Backstage Loft is a one-off masterpiece fusing the historic wooden architecture of the ancient adjoining chalet with the contemporary flair of the main chalet. To complement the overall design of the building, Heinz Julen has custom-made every fitting and piece of furniture in his own design studio and workshop located in the village.
Our trip went very smoothly and were very impressed with our resort concierge who helped to arrange paraponting. The chalet was very modern and impressive and we liked how close it was to town. The glass walls gave it a really spacious feeling and some fun features too!
