Overview

Majestic Maurice

You wind your way up the final few twists and turns approaching Zermatt and pull up at a station. A private station. Accessing a private funicular, which transports you through the mountain itself to the exclusive Petit Village – and directly into Chalet Maurice, your private chalet. There is a majesty to Maurice proudly overlooking the twinkling lights of Zermatt, the skyline above dominated by that other Majestical Zermatt being, the Matterhorn. 

In no other chalet in Zermatt can you arrive in such style and with such ease; your comfort is key here, just as it should be. Relax with a glass of Champagne and soak in the views and the splendor of your surroundings.Maurice is your blank canvas upon which to paint those most precious of holiday memories.

The professional and friendly team will orchestrate special, memorable moments, whether it’s the tonic of a soothing massage after a big day on the mountain, or a Hendricks Gin & tonic while you snuggle up by the fire and the kids revel in the freedom of the separate TV lounge. A taxi will always be outside ready to whisk you up to the slopes – or down into town after dinner to sample the cocktails at Gees.

Chalet Maurice has that magical quality; shy in the daytime; transformed by night. At first glance understated, with natural woods and subtle earthy tones punctuated with little splashes of colour in the bedrooms (all of which bar one have stunning views of the Matterhorn). In the dining room your eye is drawn to a beautiful sculpture; this is entitled “What goes around comes around”  - a piece by Italian sculptor Lorenzo Quinn.

Other than the outstanding service nothing in Chalet Maurice is overtly flashy, not in the daytime at least. Though the wellness suite has the power to transport you to another yet more tranquil world, and the view from the outside hot tub is also out of this world. Nicely private – your own little amphi-theatre onto the Matterhorn.

But in the evening it’s a different story. Chalet Maurice comes alive with clever, subtle lighting casting dramatic shadows across the sitting room and dining area. A truly special dining experience, especially if you are quick enough to bag one of the seats facing the vast picture windows onto the Matterhorn.

The food too will be exquisite. You’re in the driving seat here; choose from multi course, gourmet tasting menus or opt for simple home cooking, and anything in between. The skilled chef will create bespoke menus just to your taste – or surprise you if you prefer! Enjoy, amongst others, the fine Swiss wines here. Rarely found outside of Switzerland as such small quantities are produced, the whites in particular are really excellent.

For the blissful time that is your holiday here you won’t lift a finger, other than to raise a toast to your own very good taste in choosing Chalet Maurice.

WHAT WE THINK

Maurice is a special chalet that enjoys a commanding position in one of the Alps most luxurious resorts. I felt every bit the king of Zermatt while sat at the dining table here - and I only stayed for dinner.

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 healthy array of fresh fruit juices, a selection of warming teas and coffee - yoghurts, crispy cereals, juicy fruit and a mouth-watering display of delicious fresh breads & delicate pastries. Your chef will also prepare a daily cooked hot option for you - how do you like your eggs? So much choice that you might miss the first ski lift if you're not careful. 

 

High tea temptations

Come back after a wonderful day on the mountain to the warmth and comfort of your chalet. Snuggle up on the comfy sofa in front of a crackling fire, with a steaming cup of tea and a generous serving of cake – this is how all afternoons should be. Your chef will prepare a fresh from the oven, sweet treat for your return, so whether your preference is for a hearty sticky Apple and Ginger cake or a delicate Mille-feuille aux framboise is more your thing, there will be something tempting waiting for you. Personally I don’t think you can beat a slice of crispy baguette with lashings of butter and dollops of apricot jam or nutella - but maybe that ‘s just me - the perfect comfort food.

 

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. 

 

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 six nights, leaving you one night free to explore the fabulous local restaurants.

 

Let the good times flow 

The chalet provides an open bar of beer, carefully selected house wines, spirits and mixers. The house champagne is Perrier Jouet.

 

Children & dietary requirements 

The chalet is happy to cater for specific dietary requirements, and will serve an earlier high tea for children. 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.
