Property features

Who we are

  1. We are a semi retired professional couple(English/Swedish)who are well travelled and love to visit new places. We speak English, German, French, and Russian. We also have a large (250 sq m) house in England in Kent (the garden of England) which we are also willing to exchange. These days we tend to live most of the year in Zermatt but spend Spring and autumn in the UK. Our preference is to exchange with other retired couples who live in a warm climate. During school vacations we enjoy taking our 10 year old grandson with us on our travels to show him a bit of the world and other cultures.

Besides skiing (year round on the glacier) there are beautifully maintained mountain bike and hiking trails, swimming pools, tennis courts, and ice rink (winter only). A striking feature of Zermatt are the gourmet mountain restaurants which are open in summer and winter. The village has a lively apres ski scene in winter and there are many bars and restaurants to visit in the village in the evening.
