It’s a tricky little gamble; do you pick the facilities and superior location a hotel can often offer, or the luxurious privacy of your own apartment. Relaxing curled up on the sofa before a crackling log fire is a wonderful picture, but popping out first thing in the morning to pick up fresh pastries – less so. Although you could always send one of the boys… Or you could really come up trumps and stay in the Idyll Penthouse, Zermatt.
With all the facilities of a first class hotel in the privacy of your own Penthouse apartment, you can feel justifiably smug. You’ve played your cards just right here. The La Vue chauffeur and electric taxi await you in Zermatt’s iconic square as you alight the little red train and catch your first glimpse of the Majestic Matterhorn.
Just 2 minutes later after negotiating Zermatt’s charming cobbled streets and successfully avoiding the pedestrians thronging them you pull up outside La Vue; the boutique apartment complex housing just 6 exclusive apartments – and you’re heading for the top floor. Gliding through reception whilst the chauffeur attends to your bags you are greeted with a smile, and shown to the lift, which will whisk you up to your private residence for the week. You know you’re in safe hands here.
This is a modern, fabulously designed property with everything considered for your ease, comfort and pleasure. Big inviting sofas in warm grey tones face the log fire, which already lit, crackles and pops in celebration of your arrival. The Penthouse is bright and contemporary, with clean lines, solid wooden floors and high, pitched ceilings giving a feeling of endless space. You are treated to incredible views from the expansive, floor to ceiling windows that are your eyes out on to the white world below you.
La Vue sits perched on the hillside above the buzzing town of Zermatt, and gazes up towards the Matterhorn as she stands watch over her guests. Surrounded by the white, fluffy mountainsides you will eagerly anticipate clicking on your skis and catching that first lift. It will be easy as pie too, with your skis stored in the ground-floor ski room and your boots warming in anticipation – as your chauffeur and Electric taxi wait on stand-by. Its little more than a 2 minute drive to the main Furi ski lift which will grant you access to the Matterhorn paradise and beyond, all the way to Italy in fact. We recommend a few lunch stops on the Italian side, the fresh pasta can’t be beaten.
Back in Zermatt at the end of a long ski day and a few cheeky gluhweins at après you look forward to trying out the spa facilities at La Vue. What better way to sooth your aching ski legs than a dip in the whirlpool, or sitting back in the sauna and admiring those views.
The shared spa area is not the only space in which to while away the early evening; there is also a large cinema room where you kick back in front of a movie, with a glass of Malbec from the extensive wine cellar La Vue has to offer. These little extras set this accommodation apart from the average ski apartment; elevating your whole experience and giving the whole family space to relax and have fun.
Foodies will love exploring the varied and award winning restaurants on offer in Zermatt, just a stroll from your apartment. For a change, though, why not have the professional in-house chef cook you a meal in the Penthouse? You can watch him prepare a delicious dinner and pick up some tips too. With decadent breakfasts served to you daily you needn’t lift a finger with regards to food - unless you want to of course.
Time spent at La Vue is everything a holiday should be; relaxing, fun and exciting. A great base to explore the slopes and town of Zermatt, and a luxurious pad to come home to at the end of each exhilarating day.

“Jostling for position amongst the elite is this newcomer to the Zermatt skyline. It doesn’t shout, ‘look at me’ like The Peak, nor does it have a stand out feature to compete with The Backstage. It sings its own song. La Vue is a collection of apartments that can be rented separately or taken as a whole and the joins are seamless. The interiors are an essay in spaciousness and colour; the designers of this beautiful chalet have created wonderful interior spaces that sing with light and make a stay here good for the soul. La Vue transcends its constituent parts and proves the adage, less is more – something a little unusual among the luxury ski chalets in Zermatt”
“Overlooking Zermatt, La Vue combines contemporary styling and supreme comfort with the authentic charm of an alpine chalet to provide a warm and inviting atmosphere for its guests.”
