Unveiled in 2015, the 7 Heavens development is now known as one of the most exclusive places to stay in the already prestigious ski resort of Zermatt, Switzerland’s most famous alpine village. Including seven residences at the heart of all the action, the development is the ultimate in luxury ski lodges and most of them are now available for holiday bookings. Chalet Elbrus is one of the out-of-this-world residences which can be hired for the most indulgent of winter breaks. We take a closer look at the impressive Zermatt Chalet…
The highest skiing domain in the alps, Zermatt is the capital of the Matterhorn regions which boasts 38 peaks over 4000m. It offers 365 days of skiing and 300 days of sunshine each year leading to its acclaim as a world-class winter sports destination. The 7 Heavens resort is just a stone’s throw from everything Zermatt has to offer, including shopping, nightlife, the main railway station (Zermatt is entirely car-free) and of course the Sunnega funicular to whisk you straight up the ski slopes to some of the best powder you’ll see in the world.
All the 7 Heavens chalets share an impressive lobby, living room and bar to enjoy your favorite après ski after a long day up in the mountains. There is also a shared state of the art gym, if skiing isn’t enough to tire you out. Once you get through to the private sanctuary that is Chalet Elbrus you can drop off your skiing paraphernalia in the private ski room before taking a lift up to the main floors.
On four levels Chalet Elbrus sleeps 12 people across 565m² and has breathtaking south westerly views of the Matterhorn. With the bedrooms on the lower levels, the top floor is reserved for a vast living and dining area with floor to ceiling picture windows and a balcony which opens the chalet to the wintry wonderland outside. Also on the top floor is the private in-house spa and wellness area to ease any ski related aches and pains with a large hot tub and sauna.
With an impeccably plush interior, the classic timber frame and walls have been highlighted with delightfully touchable textures like faux fur and velvet throughout. To create a cozy contrast to the snow covered views outside. There are not one but two master bedrooms on the next floor down, one with a dressing area and en suite bathroom and the other with an en suite shower room.
On the lower floors are three further bedrooms, two twins and one bunk room which sleeps four and little ones as sure to love. Along with the large open plan kitchen on the top floor, there is also a private professional kitchen where your meals can be cooked for you and if you’re planning an even larger celebrations, Chalet Ebrus can be linked to Chalet Acongagua next door to sleep a combined 22 people.
If you’re looking for the ultimate Zermatt chalet to snuggle up in this winter or next, look no further than Chalet Elbrus or the rest of the exclusive 7 Heavens residences. Now available to book through Sno.
