Contemporary, stylish and perfectly placed, this luxury self-catered ski chalet in Zermatt is something a little bit special.
With ski-in/ski-out access in good snow conditions and close to the Zermatt Matterhorn Express lift station, it couldn’t be better placed to take advantage of the best of Zermatt’s slopes. But while there are hundreds of traditional ski chalets in the area, Panicha Penthouse offers something distinctly different from the rest.
Under the sloping eaves of this penthouse apartment, capacious sofas and armchairs, gathered around the statement fireplace, bring a gentlemen’s club feel. Nearby is a cosy dining area beneath an elegant chandelier, where you’ll enjoy long, leisurely meals created by your private chef in the adjacent kitchen, which is decked out with all the gadgets you could need, right down to the Nespresso coffee machine.
Each of the contemporary bedrooms, decorated in a neutral palette and set off by rustic woods and stone, provides a cosy bolthole for you to escape to at the end of each day. And the spa-style bathrooms, each with their own bit of character, allow you to make an event of even your everyday ablutions.
Everything has been thought of here to make your holiday as stress-free as possible, from the extra throws on the end of every bed and chair to ensure you’re snug at all times, to the laundry and ski rooms down in the basement that allow you to kick off your ski gear when you get home and have it all dry and warm ready for the following morning.
The cream on the Nespresso coffee, however, with this property, must be the wonderful balcony off the main living space. An outdoor living room, scattered with sheepskin throws and cushions to up the cosy factor, views of the mountain and the iconic Matterhorn, the forest and the cable car, and even a telescope so you can get up close to the stars as they light up Zermatt’s sky… there’s nowhere we’d rather be.
Set in a tranquil building, Panicha Penthouse is best suited to those who prefer a peaceful environment as quiet consideration to the neighbours is appreciated.
