Non Skiers, Poor Days...: Zermatt is a fantastic skiing resort with hundreds of kilometres of skiing in Zermatt, Cervinia and Valtournenche. But it also has good facilities for non skiers - most of the mountain pathways are kept fully open in Winter so walkers can arrange to meet the skiers at your favourite restaurant! There is indoor swimming, outdoor skating and curling rinks as well as tobogganing - great fun when the weather is a bit iffy! Plus a village which offers historic walks daily, an Alpine Mountain Museum and take a horse drawn carriage tour.
You can now buy a ski pass which allows you to take days off!
Restaurants and Apres Ski: We know of no other resort with such a wide variety of excellent restaurants both on and off the mountain, Zum See has been voted best mountain restaurant and many others offer a fantastic variety of mouth-watering menu's. The hamlet of Findeln just below Sunnegga offers many great little stubli's such as Franz & Heidi's, Chez Vrony, Paradies, Reid etc. - you will not be disappointed.
In the evening Zermatt has scores of excellent venues for eating Swiss traditional fare plus French, Italian, Mexican, Thai, Japanese, Greek etc. and after your meal there’s an excellent nightlife in places such as the Pollux, Moods, Elsie’s and the Pink Elephant often with live music.
The Telegraph sums it up in its Ski Supplement (8th October 05) 'Best mountain restaurants in the world, which explains the lack of will to ski after lunch. Lunch in Chez Vrony, Zum See or any other of a dozen other mountain restaurants is a gastronomic experience without parallel.
The bathroom is fully tiled with underfloor heating and a full size bath with a powerful shower that will certainly wake you up!
There is also a full towel rail and magnified shaving / make up mirror

The house has a sizeable ski room with heated boot drier and ski racks for all 4 apartments, plus a separate lockable storage cupboard for luggage, buggy etc.

Golf: Golf is available in the summer, down the valley at the Matterhorn course in Tasch. Its a new 9 hole course which is interesting with great views, if a little lacking in distance and the par 3, over the river Vispa is a super short hole.
Further afield if you have a car, there are courses at Leuk about forty minutes and the Swiss Open course at Crans Montana (handicap limits) about an hour You are also only an hour and a half from the Italian Lakes and there are several excellent courses around Lago Maggiore.
Ski: We were told 'once you've skied Zermatt you'll just keep coming back'... they were right. 'Serious skiing territory-fabulous for advanced & intermediate and perfect for those who want to lap up the atmosphere of one of the most vibrant ski resorts in the world' (D Telegraph 08.10.05)
You can ski up to 3800+ metres, it has Europe's largest summer ski area and plenty of snowmaking to keep the runs to the village topped up. This usually ensures excellent skiing from late November to the end of April.
Zermatt has 3 ski areas, Sunnegga, Gornergrat and Klein Matterhorn with 33 lifts in total. Ski Europe offers a good independent summary of the skiing (please, contact owner for link). It offers pistes for everyone but is best for intermediates and upward.
Once you’ve “done” Zermatt, you can ski over to Italy and experience Cervinia and Valtournenche via the Klein Matterhorn.
In total there is over 394 km. of pistes in the area at high altitude with runs to challenge every ski
Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: Hi, I am Swiss, but lived in the UK for many years, we now live in central Switzerland and have been coming to Zermatt for more than 20 years.
Why the Owner Chose Zermatt: When we stood on the piece of land where Millennium now stands, were were immediately taken by its great position and peaceful location - far enough outside the village, for a quiet location, but close enough to easily walk into the village and also to the Sunnegga ski lift which is the fastest route onto the mountain. We thought it was the perfect location.
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet: Our location provides a great view of the Matterhorn from both the bedroom and living area and we are on the sunny side of the village. It is a small house with only 3 other apartments and it has direct access from the road, so no long sets of stairs to climb!
