Chalet Heinz Julen Loft, Zermatt, Switzerland

Season 2020-2021: If you book a holiday and it includes a flight then you have booked a package holiday and you are protected by the Package Travel Regulations. These mean that if your accommodation cannot be provided you are either offered an alternative of the same quality, or a cash refund, or the chance to book again at a later date. As we have seen from experience any monetary refund may take a few months to be paid out but in the meantime your money is protected by the ATOL scheme.

This is without doubt on of the most spectacular luxury chalet properties in Zermatt. A huge 240 square metre Manhattan style loft set in a wooden chalet in the Swiss Alps; it combines acres of glass, steel, textured concrete and wood in a unique symphony of fusion architecture created by local star designer and architect, Heinz Julen.

Access is a 2 minute walk from the top of the Omnia Hotel lifts, for which you will have a special key. The village end of the lift delivers you to the heart of Zermatt, in the main street close to the church.

The sense of space, light and closeness to nature that the Loft provides is unparalleled: there are no barriers between the nature outside and the home space inside - all is fluid and free. On the two sides overlooking the village, the walls consist of floor to ceiling glass, with French windows 6 metres high leading to a large terrace. (There is a white electric exterior curtain that can wrap itself around all that glass if need be). The ceiling is supported by seven columns, while the glass walls have an inset fireplace and three alcoves.

The main loft living area has a suspended and illuminated table which can be raised and lowered from coffee table, to dining table, to ceiling height; the latter creating a large party space. In one corner you can play on a baby grand Steinway piano, while in another you can sink into a large sofa and gaze simultaneously at the stunning view over the village and at the crackling fireplace set into the glass wall. Around you: two desks, jack-in-the-box armchairs, a wall of art, and a signature Heinz Julen chandelier. In fact, all the sought-after furniture in the Loft is designed by Heinz.

From this level a metal staircase leads up to the mezzanine, which has another sofa chill-out area with TV; a free standing Jacuzzi bath, a cosy dining alcove, a galley kitchen (with cupboard handles made out of bent soup spoons), a cantilevered bar area and a guest toilet. As you walk on this floor you will notice that the floating feeling it creates is due to it being made entirely of opaque glass with subtle inset lighting.

Overlooking the main loft area, there are two double en-suite bedrooms, one above the other. Each bedroom has its own small bathroom with shower and WC, and a balcony. The third, master bedroom is very private with its own landing. It is an exact replica of the famous Into the Hotel suites created by Heinz Julen, featuring a free-standing bath with wood-slatted massage cover, an island bed on a rotating floor, his and her bedroom sinks, a separate shower room and WC, a walk-in wardrobe, a sofa, and a TV set into the glass window.

Both levels of the Loft are served by a private lift.

With its world famous Matterhorn Mountain, fantastic on piste dining, and wonderful resort ambiance travellers from around the world have made sure that there is always a demand for luxury chalets in Zermatt. The ski area is huge and combines with Cervinia in Italy to create a wonderful interlinked ski domain. Zermatt has invested many millions over recent years creating a lift system that rivals any resort in the world and getting from one area to the other is no longer the problem that it once was. Zermatt always had a certain magic and that magic is now set to continue well into the 21st Century.

We say...
This chalet is perfect for those with a love of modern and quirky design, with stunning views over Zermatt village. The height of luxury for small groups or corporates. Great for your inner rock-star self - apparently Robbie Williams even stayed here.
