Chalet Osorno, Zermatt
What better way to stay in one of the very best ski areas in the world than to be in a sophisticated chalet overlooking this historic village, yet just minutes away from the lifts and centre of Zermatt.
Chalets of this exceptional quality in such a location are a rare find. The Fitzroy building comprises three exclusive and stylish chalet apartments; Chalet Osorno, Chalet Potosi (ID:32442) and Chalet Aconcagua (ID:32444). Perfectly located in the quieter Obri Steinmatte area of this historic car-free resort, the village centre is a mere 8 minute stroll and with the bus stop in front of the building, the Matterhorn Express is just 9 minutes away. Your boots will still be warm from the heated boot racks as you climb into the cable car...
The epitome of modern alpine luxury, the Osorno is a sophisticated third floor penthouse chalet apartment. A sleek, understated style of decor and interior design creates a sense of space through this 174m2 chalet. The stylish open-plan living and dining area boasts a flat screen TV, DVD player and contemporary free-standing fire stove. This cleverly designed room has high ceilings and floor to ceiling windows leading to a large balcony from which to soak up the incredible views of this chocolate-box village. This theme is continued in each bedroom. All enjoy built in wardrobes, immaculately tiled and finished bathrooms with waterfall showers or baths with showers. The Master bedroom on the upper floor is vast. When you have walked past the walk-in shower to the corner bath and then to the private balcony, you may need to stop for a rest and take in the spectacular views, again.
It is not just their convenient location that makes these chalets exceptional; geothermal heating and state of the art techniques reduce their carbon foot print. As you would expect from a building of this quality, all the chalets are served by a lift. Ski lockers and heated boot racks are on the ground floor. One day all chalets will be built like this. For the moment though, you will have to make do with these.
