Chalet Turquino is quite unique in terms of style and furnishings and has been very popular since it was built.

In 1958 it was built by a Cuban sugar producer on the highest point of the district, the Winkelmatten, above Zermatt. He promptly named his gem after the highest mountain in Cuba, the 1,974-meter Turquino.

Over time, the chalet became the property of the Aufdenblatten family of hoteliers and was intended to serve as their retreat. However, it was quickly prepared for renting out to special guests and since 2018 has become a little insider tip if you would like to vacation in Zermatt with a group.


Each of the six rooms on the upper floors has its own bathroom with bathtub and is individually furnished.

Furthermore the chalet offers

  • Game room with table football & Co.
  • ski room
  • a small and a large kitchen with all necessary utensils
  • summer terrace
  • Each bedroom has its own bathroom
  • fireplace in the living room

Here is a small pictorial tour to illustrate the charm of the little chalet:
