About Nicole Arkell

I am originally from Switzerland and still have family nearby in Thun. I now live with my English husband and 2 children in the Cotswolds, where we also do B & B.

Nicole Arkell purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Nicole Arkell chose Thunersee

We love the area which is close enough to the mountains for skiing in winter and in summer a pleasant walk from the lake of Thun for a swim. I love bicycling and walking in the area and on windy days Lake Thun is good for sailing and Charles will hire a boat down at the harbour in Spiez (4 miles). We also enjoy a day out on the River Aare in a large blow up Dinghy from Thun to Bern (about 26kms in 3.5 hours). Refreshingly cold to swim in and take a picnic. Tennis in Spiez and golf at Interlaken or also available. A day out on the mountain opposite, take one of the large boats across the lake, up the funicular and then the cable car. Walk from the top to the middle station where you can hire Trotty Bikes is also a favourite for our guests.

What makes this apartment unique

We like the spacious living area which opens out onto the balcony on which we enjoy breakfast and evening drinks in the summer. You can sit in comfort and look out at the ever changing view with boats on the lake in summer and mists and clouds around the mountains in winter. All year you can enjoy watching the farmers below working on the land making hay and tending their cattle and listening to the cow bells. The village has a pub/restaurant within 5 minutes walk and a very well stocked shop within 10 minutes walk. There is an hourly bus service to the large railway station at Spiez.
