The Element Chalets

First-class holiday chalets in traditional swiss style

The Element Chalets **** in Zermatt were built in 2017, in the area called Aroleid. These idyllic, private first-class holiday chalets are located in the heart of nature, away from the bustle of the town. They offer an exclusive panoramic view of Zermatt’s beautiful mountain ranges and are conveniently located next to the ski-slope (Furi-Blatten-Zermatt).

In the morning you strap on your skis to get to the nearest gondola and after a nice day on the slopes you ski directly to the chalet's front door and enjoy a sauna. Furthermore, many beautiful hiking & biking trails start directly at your doorstep.

Away from the town's hectic bustle, but yet close to the center - a 8-10 minute walk to the bus stop or a 15-20 minute walk to the town center.

The chalets are each named and decorated to represent the 4 Elements. However, the layout and the size of the chalets are all identical.
