Description

Studio PILATUS

Pilatus is located on the first floor of Chalet Jasmine. At 56m2, it is very spacious for a studio, but the real selling point for this accommodation is the incredible view from the very large patio. The North Face of the Eiger dominates the panorama. The studio has everything a holiday maker could wish for. DVD, flatscreen satellite TV, WiFi, a fully operational kitchen (incl. dish washer , etc.) and laundry facilities.


About the property

Apartment & Studio

Set in the world famous Bernese Oberland, Grindelwald is the base for some of Europe's best walking trails and has become something of a hiking Mecca over the years. During the winter months with over 260 kms of slopes in the Jungfrau region you are spoilt for choice.

The chalet is perfectly located in a very quiet private road just a 7 minutes walk from the main street / railway station (Grindelwald Dorf).

The studio Pilatus is 56m2 (2-3 persons) with a huge terrace.

The apartment Shreckhorn with 3.5 rooms (2 bedrooms) 86m2 (4-5 persons).

Both are very spacious. Each one has a very large south facing balcony or large terrace (studio) with uninterrupted views of the Eiger North Face and the surrounding mountain world.

Schreckhorn has modern furniture with a fully equipped modern and brand new kitchen. Both have internet (WIFI), cable LCD TV and DVD player. There are covered parking spaces (carports) for the apartment and the studio.

Cleaning (at the end of your stay), linen, towels, kitchen towels, Internet and the carport - everything is included in the rates. Only a tourist tax (about 3 - 6 CHF per adults and teenies) has to be paid locally & additionally.

About Christine + Paul

We are living in the northern part of Switzerland and we spent our winter holidays in the last years in Grindelwald. We love very much skiing and sledding. Also hiking in summer is marvelous.

When we got the opportunity to buy this wonderful apartment 'Schreckhorn' in the Chalet JASMINE we didn't hesitate.

Our neighbour, Rita, was very much excited of the studio 'Pilatus' and its huge terrace that she bought the studio immediately as well. The studio is just below the apartment.

We are the owners since July 2013

Christine + Paul purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Christine + Paul chose Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau

Very wide and sunny balcony/terrace overlooking the ski area 'Kleine Scheidegg & Männlichen' and an incredible view to the Eiger North Face. The apartment and the studio are very bright (window front) and spacious.

What makes this apartment unique

Very good location. Close to the ski bus stop (100 m) to all skiing and hiking areas: Firstbahn, Männlichenbahn or Grund railway station for the train to Kleine Scheidegg (Top of Europe).

5 minutes walk to the railway station or the center of Grindelwald for shopping, dining or relaxing in one of the beautiful Restaurants and Bars.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The Pilatus apartment is light, spacious and comfortable and has a very well appointed kitchen and beautiful outdoor area with spectacular mountain views.It is only a few minutes walk from the centre of Grindelwald which has many restaurants and shops and a great indoor swimming pool. The agent Diarmuid is very helpful and friendly and a great source of local knowledge. Grindelwald is the perfect place for hiking and from which to explore this spectacular region. It is in the valley below the Eiger and the Jungfrau and very close to the breathtaking world heritage listed Trummelbach falls.

Quiet studio away from the tourist crowds

  • 5 of 5

Studio Pilatus is a wonderful place to base yourself for sightseeing around Grindelwald. It is a short walk from the train/bus station. The studio is secure, quiet, bright and is nestled amongst the mountains. The kitchen is spacious and has everything that you could need for cooking if you are self catering. A laundry is available for use. A very comfortable space for 3 people.

Great apartment, fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for our needs. It was lovely to have a fully equiped kitchen as we ate in most nights. The coffee machine was a real bonus. There was ample space in the apartment for two people and the bed was particularly comfortable. We were extremely lucky to have fantastic weather for most of our holiday which enabled us to take most of our breakfasts and evening meals on the terrace enjoying the outstanding views. We felt that the terrace stretching round two sides of the apartment was a real strength but could maybe have done with a little more 'tender loving care'. The situation of the apartment was perfect as we could walk to the railway station in five minutes and on to the First cable car station, or down the hill to Grund to get the train to Kleine Scheidegg or cable cars to Mannlichen.

Christine was extremely helpful and replied promptly to any questions to ensure a most enjoyable holiday. We will be recommending the apartment to friends.

Great view and plenty of space for two.

  • 4 of 5

Easy access, great location. Very open and bright! We had a lot of rain, so it was nice to have a comfortable place to wait it out. Kitchen is a tad small, but we made it work. Some extras (umbrellas, trekking poles, games) were a nice touch. Everything was very well laid out and explained in the guest information book. We would return.

Lovely studio in the perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Studio Pilatus. The apartment is spacious and clean and very quiet, with lovely views of the mountains. Just a short walk into town (about 5 minutes to the main high street/train station). Would highly recommend.

The property is great with wonderful views and has everything for a holiday home.

  • 4 of 5

The property was just what we would have wanted.

It is very close to the railway station and the centre of town .

It has all the facilties required for a waling holiday and we could not have asked for more.

The owners were very easy to deal with and helped us with any enquiries.

Excellent Property and Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 10 days in Studio Pilatus. It is a great apartment, very well presented and equipped. The location is perfect only a short walk into the centre or down to the other station and lifts.

We had perfect weather for our first visit to Grindelwald and will return to this apartment
