Mary said: “We had a wonderful stay here! Marco provided us with all the information we needed to settle in quickly. It is just as cute and cosy as the photos suggest. It had everything we needed for a lovely week in Zermatt. We especially appreciated the location in such a mellow and cute neighborhood, and only a few moments walk to the bus stop, or a 15 minute walk down to the main village. Another amazing pro about the chalet is that it’s also a few moments walk to a fabulous restaurant which we ended up eating at several times during our stay because it was so delicious. I highly recommend Marco’s place!
