Located 2,100m above sea level, Backstage Mountain Cottage is the perfect place to take some time out away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Located in Findeln, high above Zermatt, the chalet is only accessible by walking, on sledge or skis. From Zermatt you need to catch the funicular up the mountain to Sunnegga. From here it is a 20-minute walk to the cottage or in winter just a few minutes on skis. It is important to be aware that the last train to Sunnegga leaves at 16.00. The Sunnegga/Rothorn area offers beautiful hiking trails in summer and wonderful ski slopes in the winter.
The cottage is full of charm with the interior being transformed by renowned architect and designer Heinz Julen. The position of the cottage offers incredible views of the Matterhorn and is able to accommodate two adults and two children in one bedroom with a double bed and two singles. There is a bathroom with bathtub.
Romantic cosy retreat
The cottage has a living room with fireplace, a dining area and a well-equipped kitchen with Nespresso machine. There are two terraces facing east and west where you can soak up the peace and quiet of the mountains. The cottage is heated through solar panels.
Breakfast is served at the well-known Chez Vrony restaurant which is just 100 metres from the mountain cottage. However it is worth bringing some groceries from the village as the restaurant closes at 17.00. Another perk of staying here is the use of the Backstage Hotel spa in the village. There are also two wooden sleds available to guests.
