Property description

Chalet Bergheim is a magical, private, ski-in/ski-out mountain chalet, built in 1933 in traditional walliser style wooden construction. Renovated in 2014, the chalet is furnished with bespoke, hand made furniture and natural materials but with all of the features you would expect in a modern mountain chalet including free wi-fi throughout, a whirlpool bath and open log fire. The chalet is completely surrounded by nature with virtually no neighbours in sight, and you don't have to share the property with anyone! Outside there is a large private garden and terrace, with a 8 person cedar hottub (Spring 2016), fire pit and bbq facilities, perfect for soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the warm summer weather. The chalet is sold on a self-catering basis but a catering service or fresh food delivery may be available on request.

One of the only free-standing chalets in Zermatt, the chalet sleeps 6 adults comfortably in 3 double bedrooms with 2 bathrooms (one with separate whirlpool room overlooking Matterhorn). With additional beds the maximum occupancy is 9 (max 7 adults, 1 children and 1 baby). The chalet is sold on a self-catering basis but a catering service or fresh food delivery may be available on request.

Nestled in the tree line at 1750m and overlooking the rooftops of Zermatt, the chalet is directly on the Sunegga ski-piste giving access to the 450 kilometers of pistes offered by the best known resort in Switzerland. Ski hard all day, grab a glass of wine and sit in front of the open fire or enjoy the evening sunshine on the terrace taking in the majestic views of the Matterhorn, that for us is the perfect day.

Or in the Summer, take the mountain bike up to a mountain lake for a swim, hit some single trail on the way down, go for a hike in the woods and then end the day with sausages on the bbq and a drink or two around a camp fire in the fire pit.

If like us, you are in love with the mountains and you value stunning natural surroundings, your own space, and a host of amazing adventures on your doorstep then you will fall in love with this place.

LOCATION

The chalet is in a stunning location above the village of Zermatt with dramatic views of the majestic Matterhorn. Far enough away to feel remote but close enough to access the many amenities Zermatt has to offer.

- Direct on the ski-piste from Sunegga
- 20-25min uphill walk from the centre of Zermatt
- Nearby restaurants within a short walk from the house
- Surrounded by nature with very few neighbours
- 400m from the nearest road access point in Winter (access by cleared footpath). Direct access to chalet by taxi in summer.
- Hike and MTB direct from the front door in the summer
- South facing for afternoon/evening sunshine

Zermatt is a car-free village and hence access by private car to the property is not possible.

IMPORTANT IN WINTER: In winter it's only possible to access the property to within 400m by taxi, and after that you must go by foot on a prepared winter trail (direct access by taxi possible in summer). From the town to the chalet it is a 20-25min walk uphill. There is however an elevator during lift opening hours which reduces the amount of uphill and walking time! From the ski piste to the chalet there are steps. Prior to guest arrival we clear the steps of snow and lay grit. However, should there be snowfall then snow clearance may be required during your stay. Should there be insufficient snow on the piste next to the house, it is 400m walk to a snow-sure piste. In winter free luggage transfer is available Saturdays 9am until 3:30pm unless very poor weather conditions. You therefore must plan to be in Zermatt before 3:15pm at the latest on arrival day!

Car: Not Necessary

Nestled in the tree line at 1750m and overlooking the rooftops of Zermatt, the chalet is directly on the Sunegga ski-piste giving access to the 450 kilometers of pistes offered by the best known resort in Switzerland. The chalet is completely surrounded by nature with very few neighbors so you can enjoy perfect peace and quiet or make us much noise as you want!

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 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.

Zermatt is the only resort in the world where you can go Skiing and snowboarding the whole year round, with 365 days of snow. As the highest altitude, largest and most efficiently developed snow sport location in the Alps, Zermatt offers an absolute snow guarantee. In winter, 360 km of piste attracts skiers of all levels. Unlimited skiing and snowboarding between Switzerland and Italy – no other destination can offer this.

In the summer, you can enjoy the 20 km of pistes on the Zermatt Theodul Glacier. Carve and relax alongside national ski teams from all over the world with the Matterhorn always in sight.

Hiking in Winter

Zermatt offers 70 km of winter walking paths. You will be able to enjoy the peace and quiet away from the pistes, on high altitude paths with marvelous views. Wander through snow-covered woods, or follow the traces of the ancient Wallisers, up to the Zmutt hamlet. Almost all winter walking paths have a gentle inclination, both up and down.

Tobogganing

There are plenty of opportunities for Tobogganing in Zermatt. The downhill toboggan journey from Rotenboden lasts between five and ten minutes – and is great fun for all ages. Or toboggan from the chalet to town!

Snow Shoe Hiking

This is a mode of transport once used by our ancestors. While these were formerly made of wood, small branches and animal sinews, today's snowshoe hiking fans have a choice of high-tech materials. Guided hikes are a very special experience. This is truly a spiritual experience for all ages.

Ice Skating

The natural and artificial ice rinks in the centre of the village offer free fun on the ice from December to the end of February. This is where the youngest ice sport fans get together, to play at being an ice princess or to compete against each other at ice hockey.

Paragliding

You've never seen Zermatt like this before: In free flight, with a bird's eye view, flying with the wind. Paragliding fulfills the dream of flying. And you stay in the air for up to half an hour. Enjoy this wonderful experience and feel as free as a bird!

Restaurants

Fine dining on the slopes is guaranteed with world famous restaurants open throughout the season. There is no resort in the world that offers the same incredible gourmet experiences. There is something very special about enjoying a salad that was picked just moments before from the nearby by garden.

Glacier Paradise And The Gonergrat

The Gornergrat railway will take you to the top of the mountain for breathtaking views. At the top you can visit the Glacier Paradise, a glacier filled with beautiful ice carvings and benches adorned with thick sheep skin rugs

Indoor Activities

Cinema, Indoor Climbing, Matterhorn Museum, Tennis, Beauty and Wellness, Swimming, Guided Village Tours, Mountaineer Cemetry

Hiking in Summer

With more than 400 km of marked hiking and walking trails, Zermatt, Täsch and Randa offer a wide range of options to hiking fans. The mountain railways make it possible to effortlessly reach altitudes up to 3,000 metres above sea level. The areas in Täsch and Randa, with breathtaking views of the Weisshorn and the peaks of the Mischabel group, are recommended to those who like to walk up to higher altitudes. Or you can follow in the footsteps of Emile Zola, Eduard Whymper and Albert Schweizer to walk to Trift. And there are walking trails close to the villages for those who prefer shorter less strenuous walking.

Mountaineering and Climbing

The destination Zermatt Täsch Randa has its roots in alpine sport and mountaineering. 65 licensed mountain guides know all about the mountain world around the Matterhorn, with its 38 4,000-metre peaks.

Mountain Biking

Over gravel and stones, through larch and Swiss pine forests, on Single Trails – and all this with a magnificent mountain backdrop: With a total of 100 km with different difficulty levels, you will cover an average of 1,000 metres of altitude.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are a young family of mountain lovers living and working in Zurich but with our hearts in Zermatt. Originally from the UK, we have spent many years working abroad in Europe and Asia Pacific until we finally settled in the beautiful Switzerland. For us, no other country compares in terms of natural beauty, and Zermatt is the pinnacle.

Why the Owner Chose Zermatt, Switzerland:
After moving to Switzerland in 2010, we have been searching for the perfect mountain chalet to call home. We didn't want just any old house or town centre apartment, but a chalet with charm, charisma and character. We must have looked at nearly 50 properties before coming across Chalet Bergheim and falling in love instantly! It has the perfect balance of being able to get away from it all, but being close enough to town to enjoy the benefits of Zermatt. Plus it has all the essentials of log fire, ski-in/ski-out and large garden! Following the renovation work we have carried out over the last year, it also has a touch of understated luxury not often found in a mountain chalet. It really is an escape to the mountains.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
- Ski in/Ski out (Snow permitting) - Private freestanding chalet - Outdoor 8 person cedar hottub - Indoor whirlpool bath - Large private garden and terrace - Smart TV with internet access - Free wifi throughout - South facing with Matterhorn views - Log fire - Ski room with boot dryer - 4* superior rated - Surrounded by nature - Fire pit and BBQ - Alpine charm in abundance - Free luggage transfer in winter (10am-4pm Monday - Saturday) - Baby room and facilities - Families welcome - Wine fridge/Nespresso Machine - Games provided
