About us

Amario AG - yesterday and today!

Welcome to our website and thank you for your interest in our services!

Amario AG has a vast experience of nearly 20 years in renting vacation properties in Zermatt.

At the time we started with just 4 units and today we can offer our clients a choice of over 15 apartments in various sizes, locations and standards.

Due to the great confidence we enjoy amongst our apartment owners, we have been able to offer most of our flats for many consecutive years to our long-time returning clients.

Many owners of the apartments in our port-folio use their place for their own holidays as well. Therefore they are not just holiday apartments, but rather second homes in great conditions, well maintained and very well equipped.

We take great pride in supporting our clients in a friendly way before and during your stay in Zermatt.

Amario AG stands for values such as quality rather than quantity, professionalism and reliability in the local rental industry. Our success over many years shows that live up to our own high standards.

We look forward to receiving your e-mail or phone call and to submitting an offer, whether you have an apartment for rent or look for a home for your most enjoyable time of the year.

Mission Statement

It is our declared goal to give our clients the opportunity to experience the dealings with our employees and partners as a positive, professional and pleasant matter, due to outstanding performance, personal service and good communication from our part, in every aspect of our business activities.
