Her name is Christiania, the one who exudes charm with an effortless elegance. Your new friend in very high places who has rapidly become the envy of everyone with her head turning style.
This winter’s fashion is all about being the centre of attention and this stunning penthouse apartment knows just how to go about that. Located in an enviable location in the heart of Zermatt, you are just the throw of a snowball from the restaurants and bars that you have come to know and love. A mere five hundred meters from the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, allowing your party direct access to this World-renowned ski area. Naturally you would expect nothing less than for your new friend to have the same priorities as you.
It is these priorities along with Christiania’s elegance and complimentary harmonious tones that that you can share with thirteen of your nearest and dearest. With seven magnificent bedrooms all proudly boasting their own unique features such as private or shared terraces, indulgent seating areas and mesmerizing vaulted ceilings, there should be no hard feelings that this year the master suite is yours. Christiania, as generous as ever, ensured that this was a master suite to end all master suites. Crisp white vaulted ceilings, that crackle of your own wood burner, a private viewing of the Matterhorn and a bed seemingly wider than many a piste. She also knows that skiing is about seeing and being seen and no bedroom like this is complete without a walk in wardrobe. Does your favourite week of the year have to end after seven nights?
With five other bedrooms enjoying their own en-suite or private shower or bathroom and two bedrooms sharing a bathroom, Christiania has thought of everyone, yet again. Those two bedrooms can be closed off to create a fantastic family suite, perfect for keeping those sharp lego shards and strewn base layers contained. These are the spaces that nurture your soul.
With a lift running through the property, even weary legs can stay weary and be nurtured. After all they have done you proud today from groomed piste to the freshest powder and onto après. Guilt isn’t an emotion that is allowed on your favourite week so we will leave the shared gym as just that, available for others to enjoy. It is time to call the lift and be whisked effortlessly to the jaw dropping open plan living and dining room.
Christiania is certainly the friend that will turn heads and the vast sundrenched sitting and living area is no exception. Come those magical evening hours, dine with the curtains open to take full advantage of the moonlit Matterhorn. Being able to comfortably seat eighteen, invite the Matterhorn, all the other peaks and your friends who are also in town to supper. Christiania has always been the social one and it is certainly the more the merrier when the flames in the wood burning stove are dancing, canapés and champagne are being served on the balcony and life has been restored from the penthouse’s private sauna.
Although Christiania has always been the socialite of the group, perish the thought of being seen in the kitchen. It’s fortunate that the extremely well-equipped kitchen has a breakfast bar with your name and that of a glass of wine written all over it. Stealing ideas from Christiania’s dinner parties are the best way to impresse your friends back home and there is no place better for inspiration than the gourmet four course dinners you will be enjoying during your stay. Return home a seasoned sommelier after learning a trick or two from the carefully paired selection of superb house wines in that art feature of the wine fridge.
This is certainly the start of a beautiful new friendship.

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? Full breakfast is served every morning. So much choice that you might miss the first ski lift if you're not careful.
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.
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.
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.
The chalet provides beer, house wines, a drinks tray of 3 bottles of house spirits and mixers. 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 6 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.
