Overview

You're king of the hill

Chalet Elena is part of Chalet Shalimar which is a beautiful and superbly appointed luxury ski chalet and is one of Zermatt’s hidden treasures. Nestled in the peaceful heart of Winkelmatten, a district the locals fondly refer to as the “Beverley Hills” of Zermatt, and for good reason. There are some outstanding properties here of which Shalimar is one.

Chalet Shalimar is a haven of serenity situated in an ideal location. Keen skiers will love the fact that you can ski to and from the chalet and the gondola nearby takes you up to the Glacier Paradise. The heart of Zermatt is just a 15 minute walk away or 5 minutes in an electric taxi. Chalet Shalimar is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the stunning views of the majestic Matterhorn, which are arguably some of the best in the resort. Each apartment has a perfect view of this iconic peak from a balcony or terrace. 

The interiors are decked out in traditional alpine wood and timber throughout and the soft furnishings blend perfectly to create a relaxing and cosy atmosphere. The spacious top floor of Chalet Shalimar is dedicated to the living and dining rooms which have floor to ceiling sliding doors which allow the light to flood in, further enhancing the sense of spaciousness and seemingly bringing the outdoors inside.

The spacious balconies afford breath taking views, providing the perfect back drop for a pre-dinner drink or for catching the warmth of the sun. You’re sure to want to spend time here gazing in awe at the stunning surroundings. After the sun sets, settle in on the sumptuous sofas in front of the roaring fire and toast your toes as you watch the flickering flames and feel the warmth of the flames. The spacious main dining room can seat up to 20 guests when taken as a whole chalet and the flexible living areas mean there is always somewhere to find peace and quiet.

The wellness and spa area in Chalet Shalimar is at the heart of the property and boasts a beautiful indoor swimming pool that enjoys wonderful views of the Matterhorn. In this area you will also find a sauna, hammam and massage room, a perfect space to relax and be pampered to soothe the fatigue after a great day on the mountain.

Chalet Shalimar sleeps up to twenty guests in ten twin bedrooms, all with en-suite bath and shower rooms and all sumptuously comfortable. Each bedroom can be configured as a double bedroom with single duvets. Perfect for large corporate groups and families the chalet can be taken as a whole or split into an eight person accommodation, Chalet Elena, or a twelve person apartment, Chalet Alex, for smaller groups. When the apartments are split each have their own living spaces and facilities. Chalets Elena and Alex have access to the superb wellness and spa area. The chalet is sold on a catered or self-catered basis.

WHAT WE THINK

Views, ski-in, swimming pool, relaxing and family friendly location - what more could you wish for really? Chalet Elena ticks every box and the service here is pretty special too. The best 8 person chalet in Zermatt in my opinion.

Gastronome

Do you love food? I don't know many people that don't - there is something wonderfully comforting and indulgent about having somebody else take control of the kitchen. But when that person is a talented chef with hands-on experience of high end restaurants, you know you’re in for a mouth-watering treat. We hand-pick our chalet partners for their beautiful properties, stand out service and their dedication to gastronomy. Here’s a taste of what you can expect when staying in one of our catered ski chalets: 

A perfect start to the day

No need to rush out of bed - breakfast is laid on. A lovely continental selection is delivered and set up for you so everyone can breakfast at their leisure. Breakfast is cleared away for you

 

Celebrate with Canapés 

When staying in a catered chalet every night feels like a special occasion, and why shouldn't it, you're on an amazing holiday and it's so good to be alive. You’re dressed and ready for a glass of something chilled with friends and family, ready to regale them with tales of your mountain adventures that may get a little exaggerated for dramatic effect with each rendition. Enjoy the delicious canapés and amuse-bouche freshly prepared by your star in the kitchen. Canapés are served on 5 evenings.

 

Serving up a sensuous feast

Take a seat at your own private table - it's time for the main event – a delicious feast, masterfully crafted by your talented chef. With an emphasis on using hand-selected, fresh, local and seasonal ingredients you will be served a melt in your mouth three course dinner that wouldn't look out of place in a Michelin starred restaurant. Dinner is complimented by a tangy platter of divine local cheeses. Menus can be tailored to suit your tastes and your chef will be happy to prepare everything from a simple supper to fine dining delights. Dinner is served on 5 nights.

 

Let the good times flow 

The chalet provides house wines with dinner, beers, soft drinks & mixers. There is a complimentary drinks tray of 2 bottle of house spirits. Champagne is served with canapés on 5 nights of your stay.

Children & dietary requirements 

The chalet is happy to cater for specific dietary requirements, and will serve an earlier high tea for children (on 5 nights). You can talk to your SkiBoutique PA about any specific requests from dietary requirements such as gluten free diets to birthday cakes and favourite dishes. We will do our very best to ensure that your wishes are granted and delivered in resort.
