    Occupying the ground floor of Chalet Shalimar is Elena; the perfect family apartment sleeping 8 people in four bedrooms. All of the bedrooms can be made up as twin or double bedrooms and have breathtaking views of the world renowned Matterhorn peak as well as en-suite bathrooms with separate showers. Equipped with the finest Egyptian cotton linen, bathrobes, slippers and Ila products this luxury apartment provides the perfect alpine retreat.

    There is a large open plan living and dining room with floor to ceiling sliding doors opening out onto a lovely garden and terrace. The apartment is extremely spacious as it two apartments, seamlessly joined together with an interconnecting door. Overlooking the dining area is the open plan kitchen where guests can watch whilst their chef prepares the finest cuisine throughout the week. Bright and spacious there is plenty of room for all the family to relax and unwind after a hard day on the slopes. Whilst the adults enjoy a glass of champagne on the terrace and take in the wonderful views of the Matterhorn, the children can play in the snow right in front of the chalet.

    At the heart of Chalet Shalimar is the wellness area and spa. Elena shares these facilities with the luxury apartment Alex which sleeps 12 people and occupies the two top floors of the chalet. There is a sauna, hammam, massage room and a wonderful indoor swimming pool.
