Activities/Attractions: The mountain village of Zermatt is one of the great ski and climbing centres of the world. Nestled in a deep valley enclosed between steeply scarped mountains, it is dominated by the huge and gracefully curved pyramid of the Matterhorn.
From the moment you step off your Swiss-red train, and catch sight of the cobbled streets and horses with sleighs patiently waiting for their rides, you know you are in a special place. What strikes me most often is the silence. There are no cars here. This immediately creates a welcoming atmosphere.
The air is fresh and alpine. But more than this, you immediately feel a part of the village. It draws you in. Most everyone is on foot, locals and visitors alike. The main street bustles happily with pedestrians. There are no impersonal tour buses belching out noise, fumes, and package tourists.
Zermatt is no auto through-route. The train stops here. All journeys on from here are on foot or ski. Everyone is here because they love mountains. Walking through the cobbled paths of town, between the ancient sunburnt barns and chalets, you catch your first glimpse of the Matterhorn and know you have come to the right place. Welcome to Zermatt.
"My 16 year old son and I stayed at the Residence Belleview in Zermatt, Switzerland during the latter part of June, 1999. We were amazed at the space, modern, comfortable furnishings, large family bathroom, etc. When we looked out at our lovely balcony we saw that any family could enjoy staying here for a month or more doing all the fun things in Zermatt while having ALL the comforts of home. The location is perfect, close to the train station yet tucked away in a quiet place. Pauline is very nice with all the info and concern you would get at a good hotel and better English than my own."
"Thank you for our very enjoyable week's stay in your Antoinette flat. The location was perfect for our needs, away from the busy central village, yet within easy walking distance to the village and to the village bus when needed. The large luxurious bath was a great asset after a long day of skiing or walking. The magnificent views of the Matterhorn from the balcony was a highlight. We would recommend your flats to all. The booking and payment was easy and convenient by Internet, we hope to return one day. Many thanks Pauline, with our very kind regards."
"We had a fantastic week at Bergbach. The studio Diana was lovely and we enjoyed the splendid view of the Matterhorn. Winkelmatten is a perfect place for excursions and for resting after long walks. We are planning to spend more time next year. Maybe we will try some summer skiing! Needless to say that all the arrangements made by Mr. and Mrs. Imboden were just fine. Everything was so easy and so pleasant. Many thanks and hopefully see you next year."
"The apartment was perfect for 2 people with a double bedroom, a living/dining room, kitchen and lovely bathroom. The views of the Matterhorn from the balcony have to be seen to be believed. We highly recommend ANTOINETTE to anyone looking for excellent accommodation in tranquil surroundings with marvellous views."
"Well, we've been back in the States from our ski trip to Switzerland for one week now. Boy, did we have a great time in Zermatt. Pauline, thanks for all the personal service. When renting a condo in the US, we never get the hospitality and assistance that you provided. Everything was perfect and we'd most definitely recommend (and I already have) Zermatt Holidays to anyone interested."
General Information: Zermatt Holidays Chalets provides quality holiday apartments and excellent service to a Swiss and international clientele, welcoming thousands of guests in summer and winter to this famous alpine resort below the Matterhorn in the mountains of Switzerland. Every client is welcomed personally, introduced to Zermatt and made to "feel at home" on arrival.
We started Zermatt Holidays in 1988, realising then that many visitors to Zermatt were looking for a holiday residence as opposed to hotel accommodation. We wanted to offer the space, freedom and flexibility of a chalet or apartment with the option of extra services like catering, shopping, etc. The idea proved to be a winning formula with more visitors each year realising the advantages of a "home-from-home".
Chalet Huwi is a unique Swiss chalet with 8-10 beds, situated in
the Winkelmatten area of Zermatt, with stunning views of the Matterhorn.
Built originally as a family home, its rustic charm will delight our

"We just returned from a week's stay in wonderful Zermatt. We stayed at the Chalet Barbach in the Charlotte and our travelling companions were in the Antoinette. What a view! The majestic Matterhorn in all of her glory was quite the site to wake up to each day. Tuesday morning was stunning with a blanket of fresh, white snow from the night covering the trees and ground. It looked like something out of a story book! The town was full of charm and pleasant people. Every restaurant we went to was superb. I am not a skiier and had plenty to keep me occupied. Our apartments were so peaceful and quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of skiiers and shopping. Yet we were only a quick minute bus ride away from everything. We found a cute little bar with great live music and enjoyed the night life down in the village. We hope to be back someday only this time we'll bring our children. It seems to be a very child-friendly place to vacation. Thank you for a pleasant week!"
"Whilst surfing the web I found Pauline's web site. We met her in Zermatt before she started her own business and subsequently booked with her to stay at the Bellavista apartments some years later. We could not have been made more welcome if we had been her own family. I can vouch for the accuracy of the pictures and information. If we come to Zermatt again, we will certainly be in touch. Best wishes to you from us both."
"We have been skiing in Zermatt for many years. It is one of the best ski resorts in the world. Initially we stayed in one of the top hotels as we have never been very keen on staying in apartments. Then one year we decided we would try Zermatt Holidays and were so impressed with the accommodation and service that we have rented their apartments for many years since then. We very much hope to return again next year. Thank you Pauline very much for all your help over the years."
"Just to say we had a great time in Zermatt. What a place! The chalet is lovely, and Natasha is just great. I can't imagine anyone doing the job as well as she does. She looked after us really well, and she is a great cook. We ski in a different place each Christmas and Easter to get lots of variety, so we don't normally go back to a place once we've visited it. However, I feel sure we will be making an exception for Huwi!"
