Take in the timeless silhouette of the Matterhorn from a modern setting at Chalet Aconcagua. Set in the new luxury 7 Heavens development in the heart of Zermatt, this five-bedroom Swiss Alps vacation rental boasts views of the iconic slopes and puts a contemporary spin on classic chalet style. A full staff lets you take advantage of the two ski lifts just a short walk away.
Your stay at Chalet Aconcagua includes the services of a chef, host, chalet manager and driver. You’ll enter through the 7 Heavens lobby, where you can leave ski gear in your private ski room, enjoy a cocktail at the bar, sample a cigar in the lounge or stretch out in the shared gym. An elevator whisks you up to the villa, which has its own spa area, indoor hot tub, home theater and wine fridge, and is fully equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual systems.
The chalet’s mix of reclaimed timbers and modern furnishings creates a refined yet warm feel. The top-floor main living area is set under a traditional sloped ceiling and features comfortable sitting and dining areas laid out around a sleek double-sided fireplace and picture windows that frame the mountain views. Though there is a fully equipped open kitchen in one corner of the room for your use, there’s also a separate professional kitchen for the staff.
Five bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom, provide honeymoon-worthy accommodations for adults and separate, family-friendly spaces that kids will love. There are two bedrooms with king beds that open to balconies, one of which has Matterhorn views, and two bedrooms with double beds that open to balconies, again including one with Matterhorn views. The children’s room has two bunk beds.
The Zermatt region is known for its year-round skiing and nearly year-round sunshine, and Chalet Aconcagua puts you in the heart of it all, just steps from the Sunnegga funicular and a 15-minute walk from the Matterhorn Express ski lift. You’ll find shopping and dining in downtown Zermatt, but you can also take a taxi or shuttle to nearby Täsch in about 10 minutes. For avid players or amateurs after stunning scenery, Golf Club Matterhorn is a 5-mile drive. At the end of your holiday, plan to fly out of the Malpensa, Zurich or Geneva airport.
