Carmen is a superbly situated duplex attic apartment in a chalet which is perched on a hilltop. Access is very convenient via a tunnel lift which is 200 meters away from the Matterhorn Express base station and, in winter, the end point of the main resort ski run, thus making this in winter one of the few "ski-in" properties in Zermatt (please note that it is not technically "ski-in" since you ski to within 200m of the entrance tunnel). The church square with its boutiques and restaurants is just five minutes away in the other direction.
With its sloping wooden ceilings and extensive paneling, this cozy duplex attic chalet apartment offe...rs 4 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (two en-suite, one with Jacuzzi bath), a high ceilinged living room with wood fire, an open plan kitchen with dining and bar area, a mezzanine floor with a second living area, and sunny south and east facing balconies with plunging views to the river. Three of the bedrooms have beds which can be made up as doubles or twins, while the mezzanine has a sofa-bed if you need extra capacity. Carmen envelops her guests in a lovely authentic Alpine charm!
Guests of the chalet can use a shared wellness area with a sauna and a Jacuzzi hot-tub.

Our stay at Villa Carmen FAR EXCEEDED ALL EXPECTAIONS!!
Left on 08/11/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | Annie
Villa Carmen EXACTLY as advertised! Incredible 3 course meals with Chef Chris were a delight at the end of the day. Flawless arrangements for housekeeping, shopping, booking reservations, etc. Loved the location; Villa itself Charming with Swiss flair, and cozy charm. I would only ask for more linens, as linen change is ridiculously high. WE LOVED VILLA CARMEN, UNDER THE OUTSTANDING SUPERVISION OF MOUNTAIN EXPOSURE!!! We will definitely book another holiday for winter in a larger chalet, based on our great enthusiasm for the holiday they provided to our family of 3 generations! - Annie M., Utah, USA
