Please note that this property is exclusively owned and managed by ourselves, Mountain Exposure. Any other listing for this property on this website is by an agency. Chalet Pollux is a luxurious freestanding three storey independent chalet with 4 bedrooms, large enough for groups or families of eight. All the beds can be configured as doubles or twins. Its location provides the best of both worlds: spectacular views and easy access. 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 three of Zermatt's ski areas.

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 three of Zermatt's ski areas. Yet access is easy: 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. Skis and boots can be left in the tunnel's ski-room. The chalet is bathed in sun as soon as it emerges. Chalet Castor is immediately adjacent to Chalet Pollux which is its mirror image and also sleeps 8. Castor is part of our chalet group called Les Perles. These four chalets can be combined and depending on the size of the group will host up to 16, 18, 24, 26 or 34 guests. This chalet has been tastefully decorated under the supervision of Mountain Exposure, 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. 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. Shared laundry room with washing machine and clothes dryer available. Chalet Castor can be rented with or without Chalet staff. Included in all our prices the Mountain Exposure concierge services: - ARRIVAL: meeting you on arrival for your chalet holiday - TRANSFERS: arranging airport pick ups by taxi, minibus or helicopter and advising on other travel arrangements - RESORT CARE: daily chalet visits (unless you specify otherwise) to provide advice and useful tips, and a duty manager available at all times during your ski holiday - SKI RENTAL: assisting you in obtaining ski rental - LIFT PASSES: having your lift passes ready for you in advance - SKI SCHOOLS/GUIDES: advance booking of ski schools and mountain guides - RESTAURANTS: arranging all your mountain restaurant bookings (these can be essential) - CHILD CARE: making all necessary arrangements to provide you with quality child care (nannies, babysitters, crèche services) AND MUCH MORE: We aim to offer a service tailored to all your wishes and would be glad to assist with any matter relating to your holiday.
