Topic - Huts you can walk to and what height for acclimatisation

Adderbury Climber - on 22 Apr 2012
I am planning a trip to the alps this summer with the main target being the Matterhorn, probably by the Italian ridge, as I don't fancy the crowds I have heard of on the Hornli.

Before I meet up with my partner for this, I will be having a week or so with the wife. This week will be just for walking. The wife is happy hill walking, but doesn't much like scrambling, or exposure. I would plan to start near Chamonix, and then go on to Italy.

I thought I might be able to get a bit of sneaky acclimatisation during this week. But can't find any information on how high you need to go to get an acclimatisation benefit. Anyone know of a source of information on this?

Secondly, can anyone recommend any huts at a decent altitude that can be reached by fairly straight forward walking.
