Winklematten, Zermatt, Swiss Alps, Switzerland

The luxurious duplex apartment Alex is spread over the top 2 floors of Chalet Shalimar in Zermatt. Sleeping 12 people in 6 spacious twin/double bedrooms, this apartment is perfect for large groups of friends or families.

For advanced skiers, it makes the perfect spot as, when snow permits, you can ski back to the apartment (off piste). You enter the apartment on the first floor which is the main sleeping floor.

On this floor there are 6 twin/double bedrooms all with ensuite bathrooms and balconies. The 2 master bedrooms have uninterrupted views of the iconic Matterhorn.

Bright and spacious, all of the furnishings are of the highest quality and all the bathrooms have separate baths and power showers.

A lift takes you up to the living and dining areas which are wonderfully spacious and bright. The main living areas have sumptuous sofas which surround the large stone fireplaces.

After a hard day on the slopes, guests can enjoy afternoon tea in peace and quiet while the children are kept entertained in the apartment’s entertainment rooms complete with Apple TV.

There is also a guest toilet on this floor. On the lower ground floor of Chalet Shalimar is the shared spa area.

There is a fabulous indoor pool, sauna, hammam, and massage room which is shared with the other 4-bedroom apartment, Elena, situated on the ground floor.

Alex is nestled in the enclave of Winklematten, perfectly positioned for keen advanced skiers as you can ski back to the property (when snow permits).

The Klein Matterhorn lift station is a short e-taxi ride away or a 10 minute walk. The vibrant centre of Zermatt is a 15-minute scenic walk away or a short ride in an electric taxi.

Winklematten is a Swiss Beverly Hills, whose properties are amongst the most expensive and luxurious to be found in the whole of Zermatt.

The village is set higher up the mountain than the town below and affords wonderful views of the surrounding mountains.

Another great aspect of Winklematten is that you can ski directly back into the hamlet, which is not the case in the other areas of Zermatt.

The Alps
The “Alpine republic” as a whole is home to a unique natural scenery and provides high-quality accommodation and tourism services.
Switzerland is a landlocked country in Central Europe. It has borders with France to the west, Italy to the south, Austria and Liechtenstein to the east and Germany to the north.
Switzerland showcases three of Europe’s most distinct cultures. To the northeast is the clean and correct, 8-to-5-working, stiffer Swiss-German-speaking Switzerland; to the southwest you find the wine drinking and laissez-faire style known from the French; in the southeast, south of the Alps, the sun warms cappuccino-sippers loitering in Italian-style piazzas; and in the centre: classic Swiss alphorns and mountain landscapes. Binding it all together is a distinct Swiss mentality.
With the three largest interconnected ski resorts in the world, including Les Portes du Soleil, France has no shortage of terrain. There are very few places you can try ski-joring, but the French Alps is one. There’s a huge choice of ski resorts located throughout the French Alps, all offering different attractions to different skiers of all abilities. From architect designed high-altitude family favourites like to charming traditional chocolate box resorts, France has something for everyone.
In Austria, the Eastern Alps are divided into the Northern Alps, the Greywacke zone, the Central Alps and the Southern Alps. The latter lie in South Carinthia, but mainly in Northeast Italy. Almost the whole of Austria is part of the Alpine region or at least the Alpine foothills.

TRAVEL CONCIERGE
Planning your luxury holiday, we are with you every step along the way.
If the villa of your choice is already booked, our team is happy to suggest equivalent alternatives and take care of the details. You can expect your vacation to be personalized to suit your tastes.
WINTER ALPINE RETREAT
For you thrill seekers out there looking to go beyond the normal ski trip, we can arrange heli-skiing, ski touring, ice climbing or day trips to Chamonix to ski the Vallée Blanche, or why not do a trip to Italy to ski over for lunch? Guides can be booked on arrival for these adventure trips and will be weather dependant.
If skiing isn’t your thing or you’d just like to try something different, you can go cross country on snow shoes, or see the Alps from the air with a tandem paraglide.
If you can walk, you can go snowshoeing.
It’s easy to do, it doesn’t require a lot of special techniques, and the fun begins as soon as you put the snowshoes on! You can choose between a casual hike through the woods or a steep climb up the mountain. A great option is to walk up to lunch where the skiers have skied to, and you can walk to on snow shoes, getting you some fresh mountain air, and catching up on the morning news. It also allows you to go places where skiers can’t!
SUMMER ALPINE RETREAT
The perfect alpine summer escape.
Swim in the indoor pool, be pampered in the spa, or just relax after a day on the mountain whilst enjoying a wide selection of tailored menus and fine wines.
Why not take to the sky and see the spectacular sites from the air? Take a tandem flight where you can sit back and enjoy the experience, or take a course and go solo. Where better to relax, and heal than the fresh mountain air?
There are several mountain top locations for yoga practice and classes can be held outdoors or in your chalet. A great combination is a gentle hike with a session of yoga up on the mountain.
DINING – A TYPICAL DAY
Dining can be as formal or informal as you wish, from full four-course gourmet meals to healthy meals with the children.
Breakfast is generally served from about 7.30 in the morning and in winter the lifts open at 8.45am, which should give you enough time to get kitted out for your day on the mountain.
You can have it a little earlier if you like, and if you’ve got a very early start (for example if you’re leaving us), the team’ll organize a breakfast pack to take with you. Each day in winter your concierge will book a table for lunch somewhere on the slopes, with each guest responsible for paying for his or her own meal.
If you make it back to The Lodge for lunch, or if you choose to stay behind during the day, a light lunch will be served. In summer lunches will vary depending on the day’s activities.
Some excursions your concierge organize include lunch, but if you choose to go exploring on your own you may want to take care of lunch yourself.
In the winter season once the lifts stopping running it’s time to head back for a relaxing spa treatment, a session in the hot tub and steam room, and definitely a slice (or two) of homemade cakes with some mulled wine – well deserved after an active day on the mountain. Evenings typically start with some delicious canapés and an apéritif of your choice before moving on to the main dinner.
Each morning your chefs will share a menu for that evening and invite guests to let us know if there’s anything on there that doesn’t take their fancy.
