Hi. We have been going to Chateau d'Oex for a number of years. We currently live in the West Midlands having moved from Brighton a few years ago. We have two children, a dog and 2 chickens! Kathryn is self employed. Our children are now teenagers and still enjoy going to Switzerland. We like to rent out the apartment because we love it and want to make the experience available to others. It is such a shame for the apartment to be locked up and unused in between the times that we can get out there. We try to make sure all bookings are handled quickly and responsibly. We also provide lots of information, drawing on our years of experience in visiting Chateau d'oex. Our aim is for our guests to enjoy it there as much as we do!
Kathryn Barker purchased this apartment in 2005
Kathryn first went to Chateau d'Oex as student in the summer of 1986 working as a waitress at the Hotel Roc et Neige. She loved the village (especially the outdoor pool in summer!) and went for numerous visits over the next 2 decades with the family. Our first child was 3 when she first visited and our second only 18 months. In 2005 we learnt that the Hotel La Soldanelle was to be converted into 5 star self catering apartments so decided to bite the bullet and buy one. We love the central location of La Soldanelle, just a few minutes walk from the village, the station and the cable car. It also right next to a lovely stream and has fantastic views over the mountains. Our kids (now teenagers), friends and family all adore it there. It is just so picturesque with loads to do all year round.
We adore the scenery, the fresh air, the sounds of the cow bells... We also love La Soldanelle which is a beautifully preserved historic building, retaining charm with the added benefit of luxury and mod cons. We love how easy it is to get there, by train or by car. We love that it is not a "tacky" resort. Chateau d'Oex is a proper traditional Swiss village which also has the benefit of great skiing, walking, transport access & facilities. It is not a party destination but there is enough to do to keep everyone occupied. We love the cosiness of the apartment & we often snuggle up together to watch DVDs and play games. Sometimes we walk down to the village in the evening to go ten pin bowling or to eat. In summer we love walking and relaxing. In winter we love to ski, skate and sledge!
"We had a lovely stay. I was apprehensive at first about paying the additional local fee for services, but it was well worth it and overall the holiday was fantastic value. The property manager is a lovely local woman called Maya. She makes you feel very welcome. The under floor heating (just lovely), everything very functional. We had an almost 2 year old with us and a travel cot was provided for her. Very easy to arrange the rental with Kathryn via email."
"Chateau-d'Oex is a beautiful little French speaking Swiss village that we just adored. We arrived just before the official snow season opened and just loved going for walks and spending time in the very comfortable chalet. There was still plenty of snow and snow boots were the very first purchase we made upon arrival!! Highly recommended and fantastic value for money."

We had a great week with mixed weather but loved every minute. The accommodation was superb with a large comfortable bedroom and an open plan lounge kitchen. The kitchen was equipped for any dish we wanted to cook and the tv had too many channels to count giving entertainment for the evenings. The block was well appointed and secure with an adjoining car park. Wifi was available on a lower communal floor although I understand many apartments have since got their own service. Also the lower floor had a balcony with great views over the valley. I used the swimming pool and jacuzzi which were brilliant. It was a few minutes walk down into the town where the coop supermarket was situated. The only down side was the view from the apartment was to the rear and although impressive, would have been nicer if it overlooked the valley and the town. Nonetheless it was a great place to stay and I couldn't recommend it enough.
