Chalet Trfti 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 with the Klein Matterhorn lift station nearby you also have easy access to the wholes ski area of Zermatt and Cervinia in Italy. 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.
The wellness and spa area in Shalimar is at the heart of the property and boasts a beautiful indoor swimming pool. Located in the spa you will also find a sauna, hammam and massage room, making this a perfect space to relax and be pampered to soothe the fatigue after a great day on the slopes.
Chalet Trfti is a lovely 3 bedroom apartment – perfect for a family or group of friends. The interiors are decked out in traditional alpine wood and timber throughout and the soft furnishings blend perfectly to create a calm and relaxing atmosphere.
The entrance to the apartment is on the first floor and as the accommodation is split over 2 floors, there is a feeling of space that can often be lacking in smaller chalets.
The main living area and dining area is wonderfully light and airy and is on the top floor of the apartment. Large sliding doors open out onto the large balcony with an incredible uninterrupted view of the Matterhorn. This spectacular setting is just perfect for a glass (or two) of champagne before dinner. The main living area has sumptuous sofas, which surround the large stone fireplace. After a hard day on the slopes you can enjoy after ski snacks in peace and quiet whilst children are kept entertained in the apartment’s entertainment room.
The chalet is sold on a catered or self-catered basis.
