About Will & Amanda
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.
Will & Amanda purchased this Chalet in 2013
Why Will & Amanda chose Zermatt
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.

It just doesn't get any better. The chalet is comfortable and has the kind of cozy feeling that makes you want to stay home. Close enough to town for activities and shopping. Far enough from town to feel like you're secluded. Incredible view of the ridge from Monte Rosa to the Matterhorn. We shall return!
everything wa very nice
just that the hot tub didn't work but it was warm anyway. I just wonder why we didn't get our deposit back yet ??
Amazing stay in Zermatt
The Chalet was just as advertised. The home was clean, cozy and the location was incredible! We had a wonderful time and would recommend the Chalet to anyone looking to have a perfect time in Switzerland.
Fabulous Property at excellent location
This was one of the best property i have been to in last 10 years. Everything was picture perfect. Location was awesome with a great view of Matterhorn, isolated to have your private time but close enough to the town. Chalet was equipped with all modern amenities like hot water tub, Jacuzzi, apple TV, barbecue eqp, fully equipped kitchen. Will has been a great host who responded to our requirements promptly. His personal touch on kids bedroom is highly liked by kids. There is lot to do for kids be it playing with snow, in the garden or watching wild life occasionally across the window. Overall a fabulous holiday and i would love to come back again.
Many thanks for the great review! Please come again some day. Will
Magnifique Vue sur la vallée de Zermatt et sur le mont Cervin
Superbe chalet suisse authentique rénové avec beaucoup de goût. Cuisine parfaitement équipée. Jacuzzi et terrasse géniale en temps ensoleillé. Accueil parfait à la gare et le coup de l'helico pour les bagages est très cool!
Globalement 10 sur 10!
Un grand merci à Will et sa famille de nous permettre l'accès à cette belle demeure.
Hi Gerald, thanks a lot for your great review! Please come again soon :) Will
An absolutely exquisite experience in a breathtaking location.
My family and I (wife, 3 children) are in the middle of a year long global travelling adventure, and chose to spend 3 weeks at Chalet Bergheim. Our goals were simple: to ski as much as humanly possible, and to feel at home after being on the road for so long. Well, mission accomplished! The gods were surely looking down upon us as it started dumping snow as we pulled into the Zermatt train station. Our entry into the Chalet was seamless, with a heli- drop for our crazy amount of luggage, and in the comfort of a warm home on our first night, we looked out the living room window to the Matterhorn. Pictures can’t really capture the beauty of it all, but this chalet is certainly as advertised. It truly is a ski-in-ski-out scenario, and apart from daily groceries (which you can have pre-stocked), you are more or less self-sufficient.
The kids loved skiing down the piste to the chalet at the end of each day, throwing their ski boots on the warmers in the mud-room, sitting in the hot tub, and watching movies on the living room TV late into the night. The kitchen was well equipped for my wife and I to cook breakfast and most dinners...not too much else to say except this place was a gem for us. One last thing, the owner Will was about as responsive and helpful as it gets. Hope this review helps you and you enjoy too!
Also, for your rental needs, I would recommend Bayard at the bottom of Sunnegga (you can store overnight in case you’re not the ski-in-out type), COOP for groceries, and Summit ski school for some of the friendliest staff and best instructors around ;-)
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.
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.
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.
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!
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
