Perched high up above Zermatt, Chalet Castor feels just steps from heaven both literally and figuratively. This luxury three-storey house commands spectacular views of the surrounding snowscapes and its altitude, accessed by tunnel and lift, gives it a feeling of real privacy. Yet it’s only minutes from the bars and restaurants of the fully pedestrian town.

Inside this luxury chalet, wood and stone finishes combined with cosy and colourful soft furnishings give this cool, contemporary interior a warm and homely atmosphere. The open-plan living and dining space is just made for enjoying with friends and family, with plenty of room to entertain, play and relax. The large dining table is the perfect place for long, leisurely meals together, as your chef prepares delicious meals for your group on six nights of your stay.

At the end of a day on the slopes there is nowhere better to relax than in the warm and cosy living area, watching flames flickering in the wood-burning stove, reflected in the large windows that look out on the mountains.

The bedrooms are a shrine to comfort and cosiness, with fluffy towels, TV and DVD player in each one and spectacular mountain views to boot. It’s lucky there’s so much to entice you downstairs at Chalet Castor, or you might never get out of bed.

If you want to enjoy a blast of the sweet Swiss air, the chalet’s outdoor terraces are a stunning, private space from which to enjoy the mountains, and don’t forget to take a dip in the private outdoor hot tub.

Chalet Castor is accessed through a tunnel and a lift, which are just 200m (two mintues’ walk) from the Matterhorn Express Lift. When you emerge at the top, above the village, it’s a 200m walk to the chalet itself accessed via several flights of steps.

Ski equipment can be left in the ski room in the tunnel.

Zermatt is a car-free resort which has a railway station, so guests often arrive by train.

Geneva Airport is approximately 3 hours drive away.

Food is taken seriously at Chalet Castor. From the moment you wake, when you’ll be brought tea or coffee in bed to sip from under the duvet as you take in the mountain views, to the end of your four-course gourmet evening meal.

A delicious continental spread, or cooked breakfast, will set you up for a day on the slopes. If you still haven’t dragged yourself out from under that puffy duvet, no problem – breakfast will be brought to you.

When you return from your day’s skiing, afternoon tea and treats will be ready and waiting to revive weary limbs and perk you up for the evening ahead, when champagne and canapés will be served to tantalise your taste buds in preparation for dinner.

And what a dinner! The private chef at Chalet Castor will ensure you eat like a king for the duration of your stay. Your wish here is their command.

There is an open bar at Chalet Castor, including spirits, wine, beer and soft drinks, and a complimentary selection of house wines chosen to accompany your meals, although a larger fine wine list is available on request for an additional fee. If you have a particular favourite tipple, just let your concierge know to have it ready for you.

Chalet Castor can also be taken on a self-catered or bed & breakfast basis.

Zermatt has lots going on for children. You’ll find something available to keep them all busy, from junior ski school to snowboarding, crafts and movies.

Your concierge will be happy to arrange nannies and babysitters on request.

Chalet Castor itself has an open staircase leading up to the entrance, so do take care with toddlers and babies who are newly mobile.
