The world-class skiing, unrivalled mountain restaurants and sumptuous chalets keep discerning skiers returning to Zermatt year after year. The positives associated with Zermatt are simply too long to list but there is one thing that you can mark Zermatt down on – its number of chalets suitable for group holidays.
By group, I mean 12+. There is a great wealth of family-sized chalets in Zermatt but this blog aims to identify the chalets in resort suitable for larger groups. All chalets come with a comprehensive catering service and can be booked via Zermatt Chalets; a UK based travel agency dealing with the vast majority of operators and private chalet owners.

The chalets are split into three brackets; entry level (low-mid priced, suited for comfort but without any added luxuries), mid-range (which are of a higher quality and provide a more bespoke service) and top-end (jaw-dropping luxury chalets with exceptional levels of service).
