As you enter Tuftra Findelbach, you have to take some time to simply appreciate the stunning interior of this chalet. Completed in March 2020, this is one of Zermatt’s leading luxury chalets built to maximise a feeling of space and tranquillity. With every room boasting spectacular views, you feel instantly connected to the mountains and surrounding wilderness, it’s almost too much to take in! The stairwell is a light atrium which, along with the large windows, fill the chalet with natural light to complement the warm wood and darker touches of colour. You are lost for words.
Chalet Tuftra Findelbach is located in Zermatt’s only ski-in ski-out district, Winkelmatten. This is known as the ‘Beverly Hills’ of Zermatt and benefits from some fantastic restaurants, bars, children’s play areas and shops which you cannot wait to explore. From the chalet you can ski through the meadow and down to the Klein Matterhorn Express, and back up to the door of the chalet down the Moosweg ski-run. In the morning you can either take the ski-bus from outside the door to the ski lift, or walk 100 metres and ski down through the meadow.
You have brought everyone together as this beautiful free-standing chalet is the only one in Zermatt that can cater for up to twenty guests. As you explore the apartment, you are breath taken by the outdoor Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna, massage room and Onsen which will make your stay truly self-indulgent. Adjacent to the wellness area in the lower ground floor is a gym with a wide range of fitness machines and free weights.
The dining area, located on the upper floor, features a solid elm wood dining table to accommodate all twenty guests comfortably. You imagine the dinners that will be spent here, sharing stories of excitement after long days of skiing and adventures. The 360-degree Swiss fire cube in the lounge fills your mind with images of relaxing with a glass of wine or hot chocolate in hand to end the night in warmth and elegance. You yearn to watch the evenings draw in as you admire the stunning views of the Matterhorn through the floor to ceiling windows.
The chalet features wireless internet throughout to keep you and the family entertained. You admire the sleek, fully fitted kitchen that is neatly tucked away, and is where our hand-picked team will work to create gorgeous cuisine for the length of your stay.
You find, located off the lounge, a charming office area for you to catch up with work if required, and a cinema room with TV, DVD and Playstation – perfect to keep the kids entertained, you think. There is also a bunkroom located on the upper floor so the younger members of your party can settle down for the evening without being too far away.
You descend to the ground floor that compromises of two large, en-suite double bedrooms: one with views of the Matterhorn, and the other, views down over the burbling brook. You are eager to spend your mornings savouring the incomparable sunrises that will create rare and unique memories. There is also a lounge that can be made up as a double bedroom if needed, providing you with plenty of room to feel comfortable. There are two other double bedrooms that share a bathroom with double showers. One features a free-standing bath to take in the Matterhorn views in pure luxury, and the other with views down over the Findelbach stream. There is also a guest bathroom with shower and WC on this floor.
The lower ground floor of the chalet has a double en-suite studio with a view to the stream, and a double/twin bedroom which has a third cabin-bed over it. This can be utilised for a couple or up to three guests and benefits from an en suite-shower room with WC.
There is a lift in the chalet making it suitable for all guests. You are ready to unwind: to enjoy a glass of champagne in the Jacuzzi; treat yourself to a massage; indulge in breakfast, afternoon tea, and six-course gourmet meals – all provided by the chefs and chalet staff. You have been longing for a chance to spoil yourself, and this is it.
You notice there is a ski and boot-room with heated boot racks at the chalet to keep your kit dry for the days of skiing ahead. The village centre is four minutes in an electro car or a fifteen-minute walk, convenient for you to explore the village at any time of 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.
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 six nights of your stay and is accompanied by carefully selected house wines.
The chalet provides beer, wines, spirits and mixers. Canapés and aperitifs are served on six nights of your stay.

We will do our very best to ensure that your wishes are granted and delivered in resort.
