About Ann

I have been going to Zermatt for over 20 years and have definitely fallen under its spell. The mighty Matterhorn towering above the little village can leave no one indifferent. I bought my first property in 1994 and this is where I live now, when I'm not in Geneva. My hometown was Wimbledon and I still return there on the special occasion that takes place at the end of June/beginning of July.

Ann purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Ann chose Zermatt-Matterhorn

I bought the Imperial property in 2001 and then proceeded to renovate it into an apartment I would have liked to have rented myself: two bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, close to the village and everything else. Later I added the studio which is next door with the idea that it would be nice for people to have a nanny or a granny close by, but not necessarily too close.

What makes this apartment unique

Everyone who has stayed in this property raves about it. Skiing in general is very hectic, and the logistics of getting to Zermatt are somewhat complicated...but oh so worth it. The proximity of this accommodation to everything important really helps to hit the snow running...and then keep running all week. The visitors book is a joy to read... or should I say the online reviews!

Location

Zermatt is a car-free village and can only be reached by train, taxi or helicopter. If you are driving you must leave the car in Tasch and proceed by taxi or train.

Soaked up the Matterhorn

  • 5 of 5

Ann's flat was a treat to return from the trails to every day. My wife loved the superb view of the Matterhorn from her bed and the large bathtub where she soaked after full days on the trails. The flat was spacious with decks front and back, the kitchen well equipped, and it was conveniently located near markets and the train station.

Ann dropped by and offered some helpful tips on hikes and eateries.

Wonderful walking holiday in Zermatt

  • 5 of 5

Haus Imperial is quiet, comfortable, well-appointed and close to all the Zermatt facilities, with fantastic Matterhorn views from the lounge and bedroom balconies. It is just a couple of minutes walk from the railway station and supermarket, and yet is a very peaceful location as it is located on a footpath. Lying in bed at night all we could hear was the sound of the river, the Vispa, that flows pass the end of the street. Zermatt is a beautiful place, in a superb location, with lots to see and do. As a family we had a wonderful walking holiday, doing lots of exploring, including climbing the Rothorn and climbing up to the Matterhorn base camp. We also enjoyed swimming in the mountain lakes, seeing lots of marmots in the wild and visiting beautiful mountain cafes in stunning locations. The children enjoyed riding in the gondolas, Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, the suspension bridge and the Alpine Adventure Park and we all loved the glacier walk. We thoroughly recommend it!

Perfect cozy apartment, close to everything, great views

  • 5 of 5

This place seemed great on VRBO and in fact was even better than we thought!

A very reasonably priced two bed two bath apartment, minutes from the train station, the Gornergrat Bahn and the city center, with views of the Matterhorn from the balcony.

We had a perfect four day stay here (2 adults, 2 kids - pre-teen and teen) and would love to come back soon.

Fabulous all round!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is centrally located, clean, very spacious, modern and has everything you need. Ann is an absolute delight. From our very first email contact, she responded promptly; and then when we met her in person, she was incredibly helpful and a real pleasure to deal with. Ann and her apartment made our stay in beautiful Zermatt all the more perfect.

Great apartment and owner

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as photographs with one short flight of steps up from foyer. Very clean, spacious living area and well equipped. Excellent location, short walk from station, few minutes to local supermarket. Owner Ann is so pleasant to deal with and very accommodating. Double bedroom and twin bedroom, also spare fold up bed, so easily accommodates 5 people. Very competitively priced. Overall we were delighted with the great customer service and welcoming flowers and wine provided by Ann. Happy to recommend to all travellers to Zermatt.
