Peaked-ceiling penthouse near Theodul Glacier

14 guests · 7 bedrooms · 6 baths
This spectacular penthouse is the finest private apartment within The Christiana, a high-end complex of luxury residences in the heart of Zermatt, Switzerland. The two-floor, 537-square-meter gem features ample living spaces, fabulous amenities including a sauna and cinema room, and seven superb bedroom suites accommodating fourteen guests. The Christiania's ideal location places you within 500 meters of the base of Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, while some of the finest dining, shopping, and nightlife in the Swiss Alps surround you. The vacation rental's "Fully Catered" option includes chef services, a driver, and pre-dinner canapés, among other deluxe features and services.
The spectacular apartment features peaked wooden ceilings enclosing a wonderfully expansive, open-concept living area, the design and décor evoking a lovely balance of contemporary European elegance and classic chalet charm. Kindle a fire in the wood-burning fireplace in the evening, and enjoy your canapés and champagne in the large and sumptuous lounge. Step onto the terrace and savor the delicious mountain air and views of the Matterhorn. Relish an unforgettable feast with family and friends around the long dining table for eighteen, accompanied by bottles from the wine fridge. At night, gather in the cozy cinema room with plush sectional and large TV for your favorite films. And in the morning, refresh yourself in your private sauna, or enjoy a workout in the Christiania's gym for guests.
The penthouse features seven bedrooms, all with double beds that can be converted into two twins. Six of the seven bedrooms open to the terrace, four have private lounge areas, and all have TVs and safes. The ample master suite has a walk-in closet, lounge area with fireplace, terrace with mountain views, and ensuite bathroom with stand-alone shower and tub.
From the Christiania, you're an easy walk to the base of Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, renowned for its sublime views of the highest peaks in the Alps, including the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc. From its top cable car station—the highest in Europe—you'll enjoy year-round access to Theodul Glacier. The Christiania is also an easy walk to Klein Matterhorn and Sunnega lift stations, and features a large ski room on its ground floor, allowing for an easy transition at the start and end of your day.
