Close your eyes and imagine the perfect luxury ski chalet, in the perfect location. Whatever you visualise, Chalet Maurice in Zermatt is better.

Built in a prime position in the Petit Village area of Zermatt, Chalet Maurice is highly prized for its freestanding aspect. Just step into your own private funicular lift to access this secluded eyrie, complete with spine-tingling views over the Matterhorn and the Zermatt valley.

Of course, this real-life fantasy would not be complete without a discreet team of staff to tend to your every need. Chalet Maurice has impeccably trained staff to make all your arrangements, keep everything spotless, and prepare delicious meals. The world class chef is at your service. And, it goes without saying that champagne, fine wines, spirits and soft drinks are complimentary.

As for the architecture and décor…Chalet Maurice is an absolute gem. Light, bright, and utterly chic, it was created by Magali de Tscharner, a celebrated architect. Natural materials, pale wood, stone and marble, combine with rich fabrics in shades of charcoal, cream and coffee, to sublime effect.

There are witty details too, such as naming each bedroom after a famous Maurice, from Ravel to Micklewhite (Michael Caine’s real name – but you knew that already). Try not to fight over the master bedroom: a secluded lair, taking up the whole top floor.

With an integrated sound system, roaring fire and panoramic vistas, the open plan living area is the height of luxury. Fresh flowers and daily papers help ramp up the comfort factor, and a gadget-filled TV room, and internal elevator complete the picture.

Just let the aches and pains of the day melt away with an invigorating massage and sauna in the chalet’s fabulous wellness area. Or, lie back with a glass of bubbly in the luxury hot tub on the teak decked terrace, with spectacular mountains all around.

Breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner are all included, as are champagne, house wines, spirits and soft drinks. Everything is prepared with supreme care, and if the menu does not appeal, it can be tailored to your wishes.

The day starts with a cup of tea or coffee in bed, followed by a mouth-watering breakfast feast. In the afternoon, a spread of teatime treats is followed by exquisite canapés at the cocktail hour, and a magnificent evening meal. Home-made chocolates and irresistible desserts are all part of the service. Specially cooked children’s suppers can also be provided.

The hand-picked house wines and Perrier Jouët Champagne are excellent quality, and the à la carte wine list offers further choices at an additional cost. Special requests can be arranged in advance – just let us know.
