Convenient, comfortable chalet in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

Augustine and Celine are very proud and attentive hosts who were authentically interested in our comfort and contentment. Their chalet is located in a very special location, only a short distance from shops and restaurants in Lauterbrunnen, yet just sufficiently away from town to assure quiet, reasonable privacy, and an exquisite view. No need here to visit a local restaurant for fondue or raclette, the necessary equipment is right in the kitchen. Homemade alpkäse and fresh farm eggs can be bought from local families on the road to Interlaken. Access to the local train station is an easy walk across the river, up a short hill, and down the main street, if you have a mind to go up to the Jungfraujoch, for a memorable experience. Ever walk inside a glacier? Or get a view of what seemed like a third of Europe? The view of the falls lit up at night is enchanting. When we were there, a folk festival was going on nearby. We were treated to yodeling, alphorns, and (LOL) a country-western band from Chicago. Our party had two vehicles, converging from different locations. Convenient parking right by the chalet for one vehicle was free, and very inexpensive parking for the second was closeby. We were very happy with our hosts and their chalet, and would enthusiastically return.

The holiday of a lifetime

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for our stay - gorgeous views, easy access to station and cable cars, very clean, very well equipped, very comfortable. It was our first holiday in Switzerland and Lautebrunnen was ideal for fantastic scenery, lots to do and easy to travel to all other areas. The apartment owners kindly picked us up from the station and were very welcoming. We were able to really relax in the apartment and did lots hiking from the front door and it was hot and sunny !

Perfect for a ski trip!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for 5 days in February, and we were very happy with our choice. The apartment's location is good, as it is just next to the bus station, so easy access to Lauterbrunnen railway. The views from the apartment are beautiful, just keep in mind is ground floor.

The apartment is very clean, has everything, I mean everything you might need for your vacation. One night we wanted to have cheese fondue, and there is a cheese fondue set available in the kitchen. In the apartment there is a TV, DVD player, radio, coffee machine, dishwasher , books, DVDs, and the list could go on. The rooms are of good size, the beds comfortable and towels and bed linen are provided.

For skiers, there is a room to store the skis and another one for the ski boots.

Thank you to the owners for their help.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review . You can also see the view when you see the video clip which is at the end of the website . Summer birds should not shiver when they see this as it is a winter scene. But in summer too it is equally beautiful. And you can sit outside on the verandah and enjoy the waterfall and mountains. For those who wish to listen to their local radio stations , it is enough advise your town in advance and we can search it and store it for you . You can get several stations from different countries of the world. In winter the yellow bus is free and you can go as far Stehelberg ( 6 kms) and see the valley . Or you can walk along the car free road just behind the church and return by bus . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbYmg5ZlHkk

Great chalet, beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

Despite a flight delay and car hire problems causing us to arrive much later than expected the owners were very helpful. They came round the morning after our late-night arrival to run through the facilities and suggest excursions and places to eat while we were there. Beautiful area to explore, would definitely recommend, we were all very sad to leave when our stay ended.

Owner's Response: Hello Ian Thanks for your wonderful review . Though late, we have several options how to meet . Sometimes delays cannot be avoided - We meet our guests personally to explain all things in the chalet and also explain a little about the region- This helps our guests to choose differnt types of passes they have to take to benefit from the short stay . This also helps them to reduce time to spend on broschures to discover the region. wish you all the best for the future .
