Luxury chalet Pollux

Zermatt, Switzerland
Sleeps 8/ 4 bedrooms
Fireplace/ Mountain Views
Zermatt luxury catered and self-catered Chalet Pollux is one of our four unique, and for Zermatt very rare, residences (our Chalet Gemini, Chalet Castor and Chalet Ibron being the others): a luxurious independent 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. 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 ski chalet with 4 bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms, is large enough for families or groups of 8. All the beds can be configured as doubles or twins. There is also a unique private outdoor hot-tub on the terrace.

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 Pollux is immediately opposite Chalet Ibron which also 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.

On the ground floor you have the sitting room and an open-plan kitchen with the dining table, both giving on to the terrace accessed through French windows. There the chalet enjoys the use of its own unique private outdoor hot-tub surrounded by snow (in the winter), perfect to relax and enjoy the view (or the stars) after a long day in the mountains.

There is also a utility room with washing machine and dryer, and a guest W/C.

The first floor has two double bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms, a large master bedroom and a smaller double/twin bedroom. Similarly on the second floor, 2 more double rooms with en suite bathrooms, a large master bedroom and a smaller double/twin bedroom. All rooms have balconies with south east views over the village and mountains.

We at Mountain Exposure have supervised the tasteful decoration, delicately combining an alpine, cosy and contemporary finish, with liberal use of wood and stone.

It has all the latest technology with flat-screen TVs, more than a hundred satellite channels, a fireplace and geothermal heating to reduce the chalet's carbon foot-print as much as possible.

Zermatt luxury catered ski chalet Pollux is a rare gem; a large independent chalet in Zermatt which has been conceived to meet your needs and wishes to the fullest possible extent.

Chalet Pollux and Chalet Castor (sleeps 8) are adjacent to each other and opposite Chalet Ibron, as well as our other 5 star freestanding chalet, Chalet Gemini, which sleeps a further 10 people. All these chalets may be rented together (Les Perles) enabling a group of up to 16, 18, 24, 26 or 34 guests to stay in the same location while benefiting from the space and privacy that only a sole-occupancy luxury chalet can provide.
