Apartment in Zermatt, Valais, Switzerland - 5 Minute Walk To Klein Matterhorn Departure Station Giving Access To All Ski Areas And Italy
- english, french
I have been going to Zermatt for over 20 years and have definitely fallen under its spell. The mighty Matterhorn towering above the little village can leave no one indifferent. I bought my first property in in Zermatt in 1994 and this is where I live now in winter. In summer I alternate between Zermatt and Geneva where i have lived for many years. My hometown was Wimbledon and I still manage to get back there on the special occasion that takes place at the end of June/beginning of July.
Ann purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Ann chose Zermatt
I acquired the Gornerwald property in 2003 when the estate agent told me of a proposal to build a lift from Furi to Riffelberg. This effectively was the missing link to connect up the whole area in both directions from the departure station of the Matterhorn Express, which is just 100 meters from the apartment.
What makes this Apartment unique
In less than 5 minutes in ski boots you can be on your way to Italy, or the Gornergrat area or all the way over to Sunnegga...just depends where the best snow is!
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Ann made everything very simple and straight forward, in terms of communication, procedure, etc, so going to Ann's we expected everything to be great. But ! once we got there, everything exceeded our expectations. The property is exceptional. Situated super close to the ski lifts to Matterhorn express (less than 300 meters), with an incredible view of Matterhorn (better than the picture that is shown), visible from the balcony and also the master bedroom, fully equipped, with that Swiss quality of everything!
For a family of 4, travelling from NY, everything was more than I expected in terms of quality.
Thank you Ann.
So happy you had so many wonderful surprises! I really appreciate you sending in this review and am sure it will be helpful to others...thank you.
Perfect Apartment, perfect location!
Haus Gornerwald is in a perfect location for both the lifts and the town. Both can be reached in a matter of minutes - and there is a bakery at the end of the road selling fresh croissants for breakfast.
The apartment itself has lots of room and fabulous views of both the town and The Matterhorn. Everything we needed was provided for.
Ann is very helpful and at the last moment accommodated us when we brought an extra guest without any qualms. There is so much space that five adults did not get under each others feet. We all felt very comfortable.
I have visited Zermatt on many occasions and I can honestly say that you would not be disappointed if you booked here for a holiday.
Well thank you for that! I am left in no doubt that you had a fab time and appreciated everything that the apartment and its location had to offer...and I think you may be back too!
Matterhorn dream vacation
Absolutely top-flight experience! Property is immaculate, and the location is to die for! And what a fabulous hostess Ann is! Thorough preparation, wonderfully detailed orientation and instructions, and readily available to help with any question or problem. Winter or summer, do try to plan your Matterhorn vacation here!
I am so happy that it all worked so well for you and that I could help plan your dream vacation. Please come back any time!
Tip top apartment
Lucky to find this super place, convenient for the Klein Matterhorn lifts and an easy stroll to the village Centre. Generous living space for 4 people, and fully equipped. Three of us were there for a very very snowy week, and couldn’t fault it, despite being pretty much “confined to barracks”for 3 days because of exceptional snow and avalanche risks!
Thank you for the review. Glad you had a good time during the snowiest week I can remember in Zermatt, and look forward to seeing you back soon.
Perfect Location in Zermatt
This condo has everything you need to enjoy your time in Zermatt. When the clouds part and the Matterhorn shows itself, the view is framed perfectly with the valley on each side of it. As a skier, you can't really get any closer to the lifts. Great restaurants are within a short walk and that walk is needed to work off the great food found in the area. Although we didn't get to meet Ann personally, she did check in on us to make sure we had everything we needed and invited us out to an event that we were too exhausted to attend from our outdoor activities. I highly recommend this VRBO and Ann's hospitality.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review about the condo... really happy you appreciated all it has to offer.
Great location and super accommodation
All went really well thank you. A couple of trees being cut down would improve the view of the Matterhorn from the balcony!! and a subscription to Netflix (or similar) would have been helpful during the thunderstorms! Other than these very minor wishes we had a super time thank you, would recommend the apartment whole-heartedly and would like to return one day.
So glad you had a good time and enjoyed the apartment. Look forward to welcoming you back.
