The Backstage Loft, Zermatt
This spectacular chalet takes the concept of a typical alpine property and turns it on its head.

Sleeping 10 in five stylishly adorned bedrooms, the chalet boasts an indoor hot tub with views of the Matterhorn, a cinema room, gym, sauna, hammam and a dining table that can be winched up onto the ceiling after dinner so there’s plenty of room to party!
The impressive hot tub is located to the side of the main living room and encased in four glass walls, one of which will swing open at the touch of a button, magically transforming the indoor hot tub into an outdoor one.
The chalet has spectacular views of the iconic Matterhorn and is just a two minute stroll from Klein Matterhorn lift station and three from Central Church Square. Nestled on the edge of the river this alpine abode could not be better placed.
