Chalet Pico: Elegant and serene, a Walliser Stadel (traditional Valais-style barn) stands in a small side-street without a name.
Used for agricultural purposes over many centuries by our forefathers, it now offers every comfort for regeneration and for a return to the essentials.
Anyone who loves the art of the simple life is sure to love the Chalet Pico.
Chalet Pico is located in the centre of the village, but in a small, quiet side-street, not far from the Bahnhofstrasse, in the historical village centre between the parish church, the mountaineers’ cemetery and the Hotel Monte Rosa.
Chalet Pico has ample space for two to three persons. A fourth person can be accommodated in the Pico on the bed-sofa in the living room.
A Valais grain store...
We feel safe in smaller living spaces, and experience luxury in the vertical dimension. The mow (grain loft) of the granary is divided into four levels. Each living room has a floor area of 19 m2 and all the materials have been taken from the original building or from Blauherd – the area above Zermatt where the Kronig family have their summer pastures.
The Chalet Pico is part of the inheritance of the mountain guide Othmar Kronig, who had the honour of being a member of the rope team of the Swiss mountain pioneer Yvette Vaucher from Geneva that climbed the North Face of the Matterhorn in 1965. She was the first woman to overcome the North Face.
