This is a true character chalet with much charm and atmosphere.


Chalet Edelweiss is located in Mottec, just two kilometres down the hill from Zinal's centre. It is a beautifully renovated Swiss guest house, hosted by the lovely Penny and Eric. You could not be better located, as it sits at the foot of Zinal's longest run, plus the free ski bus stops just outside the door. From the chalet you can ski the resorts of Zinal and Grimentz, with over 220km of piste and plenty of off-piste opportunities. The resort is still untouched by the UK mass market, so you will get the opportunity to ski quiet slopes and escape the crowds.

The chalet has been lovingly refurbished in traditional alpine style and has an eclectic mix of antiques and modern pieces. The focal point of the chalet is the roaring fire that spans the living and dining area. There are five well sized bedrooms all en-suite, plus all beds can be made as either twins or doubles, so it is perfect for groups and families.

Penny and Eric who run the chalet are what sets this chalet apart from the rest. They will ensure you are extremely well looked after, in a true home from home. They love to introduce visitors to the region and will offer free ski hosting for strong intermediates and above. Their food is fantastic and they include beer and soft drinks in the evening, they also make a mean vin chaud!

Alpine Answers say:

Penny and Eric the owners of chalet Edelweiss are fantastic hosts, they are really friendly and are extremely enthusiastic about the Val d'Anniviers and Zinal itself. They really try and ensure that you get the most out of this fantastic ski area and are always on hand to impart their local knowledge; their enthusiasm for the area really rubs off. The chalet is very comfortable and the food and wine first class. We would recommend staying here to anyone!

Client Comments

" The chalet itself is beautiful, it has been restored by them and the living room and hallway benefit from a lovely central fireplace and some great antique furniture which makes the whole chalet feel really cosy and is a great focal point to sit around in the evening. The chalet has lovely comfortable beds and all of the rooms are equipped with hairdryers. The food at Chalet Edelweiss is good and there are plenty of fresh vegetables which is great as this is often something you miss on a ski holiday. Penny also makes an excellent homemade Vin Chaud which is lovely. Zinal is really picturesque and the skiing was fantastic, the ski bus stops right outside the chalet so it is really convenient (just a short 5 minute bus ride to the lifts). "
