This was our first experience (at 65+!) of ski holidays but we have long experience of 'luxury' travel, especially yacht charter.

Overview - chalet description - Gmatchi description

Gmatchi is a spectacular barn conversion in a stunning position at the very heart of Zermatt’s cobbled old town. The original house dates from 1753 and over the centuries the building has seen use as a cow barn, a hayloft and an artist’s studio. At the top of the house is a bright, modern living room with south-facing balcony and Matterhorn views. The decor combines original wood beams with contemporary furnishing and stylish modern colours, assuring Gmatchi of a bright future to match its illustrious past. A completely unique home

Meals - food and drink in Gmatchi

Our Executive Chef is passionate about food and hugely sensitive to the appetite of a hungry skier whilst considering a balanced diet. The new and refined 2014 menus are heavy enough to reward mountain exertion yet light and simple enough to leave you grinning not groaning.

All our holidays include;

  • Continental breakfast with a cooked option on 6 mornings
  • Afternoon tea will be left in the chalet for you to help yourself to freshly made cake or biscuits, bread & jams, selection of teas, coffee and hot chocolate
  • Canapés on the first and last evening
  • 3 course evening meal (6 nights) followed by cheese board and coffee
  • A choice of red and white wine is served throughout dinner
We update Gmatchi's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

Situated in the Valais canton and rubbing shoulders with the Italian Alps, Zermatt sits at the foot of the Matterhorn (a national landmark of Switzerland) surrounded by nearly a third of the 4,000m peaks in the Alps. As a ski resort, it’s hard to see what Zermatt is lacking. With alpine charm, snow sure altitudes, world class slopes, breathtaking scenery, off slope entertainment and a huge pisted area with efficient lift system, this legendary ski destination seemingly has it all. Home of mountaineering and ...
There are 200km of runs in the local area alone and a massive 360km overall if you count the Italian side of the Matterhorn too. Together with Cervina, Zermatt forms the "Matterhorn Ski Paradise" where Sno lovers of all abilities are blessed with high altitude terrain - and lots of it! If you’re a keen beginner you will love Zermatt, which has convenient nursery slopes, lovely wide pistes to practice on and much more once you’ve conquered the snowplough. Wolli’s Park is a great learning area for children a...
Zermatt was voted the world’s best après ski resort by the World Snow Awards in 2012, making it a popular (and wise) choice for those seeking amazing après ski. In Zermatt’s 9 nightclubs and 35 bars, you’ll find a range of scenes where you can soak in the atmosphere until 3am. Designed to look like a boat, the Snowboat Cafe offers a cosmopolitan scene with some fantastic cocktails. Papperla and Hennu Stall have a crowded and lively atmosphere while the Hotel Post pretty much covers all après ski needs with...

"First ski experience"

Robert W
5/ out of 5
This was our first experience (at 65+!) of ski holidays but we have long experience of 'luxury' travel, especially yacht charter. We can truthfully say that we have never experienced, even in the leading hotels of the world, the level of personal attention to our enjoyment which was provided by this chalet company and its staff. What started as a 'let's try it' experiment exceeded our highest expectations and gave us one of the best holidays of our lifetime. Congratulations!

A lovely week in a very cosy chalet with excellent location. Particularly impressed by chalet boy Will; I have been on 20+ chalet holidays and this was possibly the best in terms of food and service. Remarkable for a 21 yr old man!

We had a lovely stay, thank you. Ellie was a great cook and very accommodating, especially for our baby daughter, making her favourite dinner without being prompted. The chalet is a perfect little piece of Quaint Zermatt. We loved it. If I could ask for one thing it would be a more cosy bed, maybe with a nice topper to sink into, but that is just being picky. Oh and thanks to Will for some great guiding, lovely chap! And also to Kat for making sure we were ok!

Nice chalet, not very spacious, but with an excellent host - always very attentive, eager to fulfil all (reasonable) requests and at the same time never intrusive. A great culinary experience (thanks to the host) - especially dinners of very high quality, very diverse, delicious but at the same time suitable for different family members including children. It's a pity that the chalet has such serious security deficiencies as extraordinarily dangerous staircases and very low bars in the doorways (hitting these with your head permanently is not a very good part of our holiday experience).
