Chalet Potosi - Zermatt, Switzerland
What better way to stay in one of the very best ski areas in the world than 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. Perfectly located in the quieter Obri Steinmatte area of this historic car-free resort, the village centre is a mere 8 minute (approx.) stroll and with the bus stop in front of the building, the Matterhorn Express is just 9 minutes (approx.) away. Your boots will still be warm from the heated boot racks as you climb into the cable car.
Yet it is not just their convenient location that makes these chalets exceptional; their intelligent design even allows for the preservation of the delicate mountain environment with geothermal heating and state of the art techniques in place to reduce their carbon foot print. Chalet Aconcagua is on the first floor, while Chalet Potosi is on the second, but as you would expect from a building of this quality, all the chalets are served by a lift. Ski lockers and heated boot racks await you 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.
Flawless design and impeccable style have come together to produce these exceptional chalet apartments housed within the Fitzroy building. Sleek and understated decor flows seamlessly throughout, yet carefully picked alpine features add a warming, Swiss touch. The elegant open-plan living and dining areas boast flat screen TVs, DVD players and contemporary wood-burning stoves. High ceilings and floor to ceiling windows add light and space, while the beautiful views of Zermatt Village entice you out onto the balcony for the full mountain effect. All bedrooms follow the impeccable Fitzroy style and come complete with built-in wardrobes, iPod docks and immaculately finished bathrooms.
