Just returned from a family summer vacation to Zermatt. Chalet Carmen was perfect for my adult size family of 6 people. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. Large kitchen where we frequently played cards after hiking each day. Large living room where we watched TV/movies at night to relax before heading to the mountains the next day. It is perfectly located at the bottom of the Matterhorn Express lifts/gondola's. The accommodations were perfect. Zermatt is beautiful but very expensive. Bring lots of cash and have your credit cards handy. The Chalet afforded us the opportunity to buy food at the local grocery stores and cook in at night. We made sandwiches for the day hikes from food leftover or bought at local stores or bakeries. The photos on the web site do not do the facility justice. It is perfect.
Wjust arrived back from a week long stay in Zermatt. Chalet Carmen was perfect for my family of 6 adults. Plenty of room to spread out and separate bedrooms for my family. Zermatt is expensive and dining out can be shocking, so having the ability to cook in the Chalet was key and became our routine. The Chalet is perfectly located at the foot of the Matterhorn Express gondola. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
We had a great time over February half term. Short walking distance to the Matterhorn Express gondola, great views over the mountains. The chalet is well and luxuriously equipped. Our team of hosts (Panna and Christos) were outstanding - attentive to our every need! Cuisine was worthy of a michelin star - freshly cooked, innovative dishes with amazing taste combinations! We will definitely make a return visit!

We really enjoy our stay in the Carmen Chalet. From the moment we started asking enquiries till we departed, we got excellent and quick response services. We were picked up at the train station and accompanied to the chalet. Chris explained all necessary things about the chalet. He booked a table at one of the restaurant for our first night dinner. He gave us many information regarding Zermatt. Seven of us shared this 4 bedrooms chalet. Living room is spacious and warm. We hired Chef Chris to cook for our dinner. Dinner was so excellent and smell so good. The utensils and equipments in the kitchen are excellent. We cooked our own breakfast. Although the chalet does not have Matternhorn view, the view surrounding the chalet is very nice and green. The chalet is on the top floor of the building. I really like my attic room with wood decorations. Super nice, just like what I dreamt of. We definitely had a best time there. We surely will return.
This was our first visit to Zermatt - so we were not quite sure what to expect, especially in Summer. My uncertainties were immediately relieved when arriving at the train station - as the staff from Mountain Exposure were there waiting for us with a large taxi ready to go.
We arrived at the chalet and had a quick personal tour - and were really impressed by the size and layout of Chalet Carmen. Our family of 6 had a holiday of a lifetime and I can thank the staff at mountain exposure more for all their assistance throughout the stay.
Whilst there in summer we put our kids into ski school, white water rafted in a local stream, hiked the mountainside, flew with Air Zermatt helicopters around the Matterhorn and jumped off a 3.5km high mountain to paraglide back down to Zermatt.
