This stunning 5 star free-standing chalet, is situated in a unique elevated and sunny position in Zermatt’s “Beverly Hills” region of Winklematten, offering breathtaking, uninterrupted views of the Matterhorn and the surrounding mountains. Just a short walk or a quick bus ride down to the Matterhorn Express gondola station, for much of the season, it is possible to ski back to within 100m or so of the chalet via the Moos yellow run. In any case, the bus and plentiful taxis can provide welcome respite for tired legs at the end of the day.
The Haus Ulysse is one of the few stand-alone chalets in Zermatt and set out over three floors, there are six well appointed bedrooms, four bath and shower rooms and two spacious living rooms, one of which has an inviting fireplace. Whilst the ground floor has its own outside entrance, breakfast and dinner is served to guests in the intimate dining area next to the large open-plan kitchen on the first floor.
Tastefully furnished and decorated with attractive art works, Chalet Ulysse has a warm, friendly atmosphere and provides a high standard of accommodation for both adult and family parties. Although three of the bedrooms have their own TVs with DVD, each of the living rooms is also equipped with TV, DVD and a sound system with internet connectivity assured by the chalet’s wifi network.
On the lower ground floor, there is a heated ski room with boot warmer and a relaxing “wellness” room with a sauna and shower as well an area where a range of massage and beauty treatments can be booked as an extra.

Our in-house ski-guides will be available, free of charge for one day per week, for guests staying in catered chalets.
