Chalet Fontana, Zermatt - Switzerland
Stylish and well-appointed chalets are hard to find in this high-class resort and we have a selection of nine, newly built chalets for you to choose from including Chalet Fontana. We are delighted to introduce to our guests this superb new development in Zermatt, exclusively for us. Situated in a very exclusive and attractive wood and stone building, the chalet is located in the fabulous Sunnegga area of Zermatt. The chalet has its own Chalet Host.
The interior style will be slick and modern, providing a haven of comfort and yet a real home-from-home ambience for our guests. Most bedrooms are en suite and will be tastefully styled in line with our highest standards. The real icing on the cake here is the fabulous Wellness Centre that many top hotels would be proud of including, a sauna, steam room, hot-tub and a separate relaxation area.
Access to the vast skiing of Zermatt is easy with the Sunnegga funicular lift within a five minute walk and competent skiers will be able to return to the chalet Fontana via an un-pisted track from the Sunegga piste at the end of the ski day.
Note: Due to a neighbouring hotel extension, Matterhorn and village views will be restricted.

Meals- Chalet Fontana, Zermatt
For six days of the week the staff prepares all your meals.
Breakfast: We pride ourselves on giving you a great breakfast to start your day, with a choice of cereals, fresh fruit and juices, yoghurts, plentiful English tea and good filter coffee, bread freshly baked in our chalets each morning, cold meats, cheeses and preserves, and boiled eggs. This is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself. And to cap it all, we also cook a hot dish of the day for you six days per week, such as sausage and bacon or pancakes with fresh fruit, individually served.
On the chalet hosts’ day off, they will prepare a Continental style breakfast for you, which will be left for you to help yourselves, and that evening you have the chance to eat out in one of the local cafés or restaurants – our resort team will be happy to provide some suggestions. In our Chalet Hotels, a full buffet breakfast (including hot option) is also served on the staff’s day off.
Afternoon Tea: The traditional 'welcome home' after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet or Chalet Hotel, ready for your return, every day except on the staff's one day off per week. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready.
Children's High Tea: In Chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 13 years with a healthy menu, tailored more towards children's tastes and puréed food is available for infants on request. High Tea is at 5.30pm, and children do not join the main adult-only dinner. Families staying in one of our Chalet Hotels may choose to eat separately (High Tea at 5:30pm) or all dine together at the later adult dinner time if children who have received a child discount pay the meal upgrade charge at the time of booking only.
Dinner: A tasty and innovative, freshly cooked dinner will be prepared for you six nights per week by your Chalet Host - or by an experienced and professional chef in our larger chalets - and served with a choice of wines. Our 4-course adult-only chalet dinners start with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee with chocolates to round off your evening. Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service, and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.
A special feature of our Chalet Hotels is a more extensive culinary experience for our guests. With the greater kitchen facilities of a hotel, our professional chefs are able to offer choices of menu at dinner, generally including lighter as well as more hearty options, and always a vegetarian choice for each course. Guests will be asked to choose their evening meals at breakfast for that evening from a varied daily selection. Vegetarian options are always on our 'Culinary Choice' menu in our Chalet Hotels, and are available in our chalets if you advise us in advance.
