Chalet Alex is a luxury duplex ski apartment in Zermatt, which along with its sister chalet, Elena, forms part of the larger well known Chalet Shalimar in Zermatt.

Offering an on-site spa, stunning interiors and views that would make Heidi envious – if you’re looking for a luxury ski chalet in Zermatt, look no further than Chalet Alex. This chalet is the perfect bolthole for a small group and if snow cover permits, it is possible to ski back to the chalet.

A typically Swiss combination of stylish minimalism and a warm welcome makes Chalet Alex a home from home you will really relax in. Wood panelling and comfy armchairs, as well as a cosy snug where you can curl up in front of the TV, make this chalet a real oasis from the outside world. Why not take your morning coffee or glass of bubbly in the evening out onto the terrace to enjoy your view of the Matterhorn.

On the lower ground floor of the building is a fabulous shared spa area where you can enjoy the sauna, Hammam or a relaxing swim in the indoor swimming pool, all without leaving the building.

Comfy and cosy bedrooms are a delight to retreat to at the end of the day. And if you’re really lucky (or quicker than everyone else) you could land the bedroom with the view over the Matterhorn. What a way to wake up in the morning!
