Before winter gives way to spring, perhaps you’re searching for an unforgettable ski getaway – one surrounded by mountain after mountain, with pristine, powdery views by day and warmth to curl up within by night. Perhaps an exotic location surrounded by endless ski routes and ambient accommodations might strike your fancy… Well, in that case, why not Zermatt?

Sitting below the iconic Matterhorn peak, Zermatt is a winter sports paradise – apart from being home to the highest ski resort in Europe, the Alps surrounding Zermatt create countless opportunities for skiing, climbing or hiking. On a day in town, one can even find facilities catering to other sports like curling or figure skating. Even in its off-season, Zermatt presents breathtaking views of rolling alpine forests, fresh air and the ultimate peace and quiet – the town is a car-free zone; and travel is only available by electro-taxi, bus, railway or funicular.

Wondering where to stay in Zermatt? Whether you’re searching for the simple or sumptuous, check out these 13 best Airbnbs in Zermatt, Switzerland.

1. Charming chalet uphill from Zermatt (from USD 86)

In Zermatt, cheap accommodation is not easy to find. For an inexpensive yet hospitable stay in Zermatt, stay in Chalet Edelweiss listed on Airbnb. Sitting on a slope just north-west of Zermatt’s town centre, Edelweiss is only accessible by foot, making it unsuitable for any physically disabled visitors. However, your experience at this vacation rental will make up for the hike – not only does it offer a variety of scenic and comfortable experiences, your friendly hosts will also welcome you and prepare breakfast in the mornings! Whether you’re a solo traveller, on a honeymoon or with your companions, the arrangements of this chalet’s five bedrooms will cater to your every need.
