Chalet Ibron is one of four unique, and for Zermatt very rare, residences (Chalet Gemini, Chalet Castor, and Chalet Pollux being the others): a luxurious free standing three storey chalet with 4 double bedrooms.
Its location provides the best of both worlds: spectacular views and easy access. 200m from the Matterhorn Express base lift station and resort run there is a street level tunnel which leads you to a lift (elevator) built inside the mountain, from the top of which there is a gentle 2 minute walk to the property and an exterior stairway. The chalet comes with an electro wagon and stair-lift which our staff will use to move your luggage and shopping as required.
This luxurious free standing independent chalet with 4 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a sauna, is large enough for families or groups of 8. All the beds can be configured as doubles or twins.
Side by side, tucked against a beautiful hillside, the numerous balconies and large terraces give you bird’s eye views of the village and the surrounding mountains, encompassing all 3 of Zermatt’s ski areas. Although it does not have a Matterhorn view, the sun baths the chalet is as soon as it emerges. Chalet Ibron is immediately opposite Chalet Pollux which sleeps 8.
The tunnel and elevator bring you up high above the village providing a true sense of high mountain seclusion and tranquility with breathtaking views. Although it does not have a direct Matterhorn view, the chalet is bathed in sun as soon as it emerges.
Guests can leave theirs skis and boots in the tunnel’s ski-room. The entrance to the tunnel is 200 metres from the end of the ski runs beneath the Matterhorn Express lift station, just a 4 minute walk from the church square.
It has the most luxurious and spacious master bedroom, with an open bath-tub, separate shower, separate W/C, and en-suite sauna, perfect to relax after a long day in the mountains. The second double bedroom is smaller and has no en-suite bathroom – it uses the bathroom on the first floor. Both these bedrooms have beautiful sloping wooden ceilings, and the master bedroom has a wide balcony with a glorious panorama.
On the ground floor you have the sitting room and an open-plan kitchen with the dining table, both giving on to the large terrace accessed through French windows. There is also a boot-room, utility room with washing machine and dryer, and a guest W/C. Ibron also has a large sunny terrace with tables, deck chairs and beautiful views.
The first floor has two double bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms. The larger bedroom is L-shaped with a sitting / dressing area like a junior suite. The other bathroom has an extra door leading to the landing, providing access for the bedroom upstairs which has no en-suite. Both these bedrooms have large south-east facing balconies.
Distance to resort centre: 4 minute walk
