Skiing in the Alps is always exciting, but to make sure you enjoy the experience to the fullest, you also have to find a nice cozy place to return to after you’ve consumed all of your energy on the slopes. One such place is Chalet Zen, a wonderful alpine retreat in Zermatt, Switzerland. Its location is ideal: it ensures easy access to both the Zermatt and the Cervinia ski areas.
Once the skiing day is over, guests here can enjoy a completely relaxing après ski experience, as the chalet has an outdoor Jacuzzi, a massage room, and a steam room. Luxe amenities also include Wi-Fi, satellite and cable TV. The interiors are warm and welcoming, being decorated with lovely pieces of art, and exuding an authentic Swiss chalet ambiance.
Large enough to accommodate up to ten people, the lodge features four spacious bedrooms and a bunk-room that can be converted into a family suite if combined with the dwelling’s fifth bathroom. All five bathrooms flaunt floor heating for extra comfort, and have Jo Malone products. Three bedrooms have south-facing balconies that afford sweeping views of the spectacular Matterhorn mountain.
The services here are irreproachable, with a 24/7 concierge constantly ready to meet your every need. There is also a professional manager, a housekeeping team, and a private chef at the chalet. Rates start at 20,000 Swiss Francs (approx. $21,500) per week.
