WONDERFUL MOUNTAIN CHALET APARTMENT

Wengen Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms,plus extra wc (Sleeps 6)

Chalet Brunner is ideally situated, just 8 minutes walk from all amenities in a sunny position with views of the Jungfrau from the terrace and of the wonderful Lauterbrunnen Valley from its balconies. It has three spacious bedrooms, two of which has two single beds that can be pushed together if required. A cot can also be provided if required. For the skiers, there is a heated ski room where you can leave your boots and skis-its fully secured and you will have your own key. The chalet has a large lounge with dining table and relaxing sofas. There is plenty of space to unwind whilst enjoying the heat from the log burning stove. The kitchen is fully equipped and why not have your dinner on the terrace whilst enjoying the fabulous scenery. Tables and chairs are provided for both the terrace and the balconies, so just relax and enjoy the view.

Why the Owner Chose Wengen: : On one of our many travels around the world, we found ourselves in the small mountain village of Wengen, high in the Swiss Alps. We were looking out over the village and surrounding mountains from our hotel balcony and we both agreed it was one of the most beautiful sights we had ever seen. I looked over to Joyce and said, one day we will live here, 3 years later our dream came true. Owner Description/Comments: Joyce and I are from the UK but currently live on the island of Crete,Greece.We love travel and are lucky to have several different properties around the world in beautiful locations. Joyce enjoys interior design where as I enjoy gardening, a happy mix. We enjoy entertaining friends and family and make it a priority that all our rental customers have a fantastic, enjoyable problem free vacation.

The Unique Benefits of this Chalet: : Wengen lies on a wind protected terrace at the foot of the Jungfrau, 400 metres above the Lauterbrunnen valley at an altitude of 1274 M. The tradition-imbued, car free holiday resort offers a family friendly ski and rambling area around the Mannlichen and the Kleine Scheidegg. With its nostalgic timber houses, the many dispersed holiday chalets and hotels dating from the 'belle-epoque' period, this Bernese Oberland holiday resort has retained all the character of a picture postcard mountain village. Opening widely to the south west, the terrace guarantees above-average hours of sunshine. In the summer you can explore over 500 KM of marked walking trails and 15 mountain cableways that lead to the most beautiful vantage points of the Jungfrau region - take, for example, the classic panorama route between Wengen and Kleine Scheidegg, which offers a particularly impressive view of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau.

Unique Benefits Continued: : Those who like things a bit more spirited might like to try their skill at paragliding, river rafting or canyoning. But for eye-popping amazement, you should walk Eiger trail at foot of Eiger north face, a medium-difficulty mountain walking tour. Take a trip to highest railway station in Europe, Jungfrau railway-most famous mountain railway in world. Opened in 1912, this cog wheel railway leads to highest railway station in Europe at 3454M above sea level. It stops at viewing platforms allowing fascinating views over famous north wall of Eiger & glaciers of Eismeer. In Winter, Wengen is ideal w/110 KM of easy to medium-difficulty pistes, & renowned World Cup piste on Lauberhorn as its crowning glory. Neighbouring ski areas of Jungfrau region, Grindelwald-First & Murren-Schilthorn are also readily accessible. Clean air, long hours of sunshine-especially in winter-toboggan runs & around 50 KM of winter hiking also serve to attract non-skiers to the sunny resort.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Chalet Brunner.....Heaven on earth...a gem tucked away in the Swiss Alps that literally, takes your breath away. Sitting in the living room, watching skiers whizz past you, not something you see on a normal day in your living room at home! The rooms are very spacious with impressive separate bathrooms and storage. The village has everything you could need, even for a family with kids. We did not want to leave Chalet Brunner!

Unbelievable setting

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a fabulous stay in Wengen. The chalet is in a great location - just far enough from the center of the village to feel relaxing and a little 'away from it all' but an easy and enjoyable walk in each day. The view of the mountain from the patio and ease of access to the ski-in/ski-out bar across the street is unmatched. Julie was super helpful with directions to chatlet, explaining how to adjust the heating, etc. The chalet is fully equipped with all the gadgets you might need - multiple hairdryers, French press for coffee, plenty of pots and pans. Couldn't recommend this highly enough!!

We just didnt want to leave

  • 5 of 5
We have just arrived home from wonderful Wengen and we want to return NOW.Nestled high in the Swiss Alps its like a picture you would expect to see on a box of christmas chocolates.Surrounded by mountains with views down into the valley, no cars, pretty village houses and the pretty mountain village with its quaint shops and restaurants just a short walk away.The small mountain railway takes you up to the fabulous Eiger and if you want to keep going, up to the highest railway station in Europe,and the views are just incredible.
The chalet itself was wonderful, spotless, fabulously equipped and very comfortable,we sat in out T shirts inside whilst the snow fell outside.Its very modern so the kitchen and bathrooms are top knotch,couldnt fault anything and its very well furnished.If you are skiing its right on the slopes, plus we will definately return one summer as its in just the right place to expore all the mountain walks, infact your right on them.
Wengen is one of the places in the world you must visit and I promise you you will not be dissapointed and Chalet Brunner is the place to stay to enjoy all it has to offer.Dear owners, thank you again and thank you for all your assistance leading up to our visit it was most helpful. We will return.

The flat itself was clean and well-maintained. My only comment is that we arrived in Wengen at 6:40 p.m. We were staying at an off-peak time, mind you, but the village is a bit of a ghost town. The grocery store was closed for the evening, and it was difficult to find a place to eat. There were no taxis in sight, and this flat is up a steep mountain and a good 10-15 minute walk from the train. When we arrived at the flat, we were dismayed that there was absolutely no soap available, and there was nowhere to buy the soap until the next morning. I don't recommend visiting Wengen at an off-peak time, as all the warm weather paths were all closed, but the cold weather paths aren't open yet for the season [despite inches of snow]! In an off-peak time, you would be much better off staying in Lauterbrunnen or Interlaken or someplace bigger, that has more to do.

Owner's Response: Dear Nola,
Thank you kindly for taking the time to submit a review, a 4/5 is a good score, however we do take on board your comments and intend to introduce the following procedures.
For visitors that intend to arrive late we will discuss leaving a welcome pack for them to include essentials to see them through to the next day.The local shop closes at 6.30 every day including high season, so we understand the problem.Soap was in the chalet, unfortunately in glass mirror cabinets in the bathrooms, that dont look like cabinets, we will leave it out in future.There is a free telephone link directly to the taxi at the station which you must have missed, in future we will make sure visitors have the number before they arrive.
We do really appreciate your comments,thank you.

Perfect is an understatement

  • 5 of 5
Traveling with my mother and 2 sisters, Chalet Brunner was the absolute perfect accomodation for us. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful location with the Jungfrau off the back terrace, and the quaint village of Wengen with restaurants and grocery shopping just a few minutes down the hill. The property is spacious for 6, immaculately maintained, and of course the owner Paul was extremely accomodating in making our plans. We hope to return soon!

I highly recommend a visit to the Schilthorn, then hike from Murren to Gimmelwald and tram down to the valley for a stop at Trummelbach Falls...a great day of activities.

Heaven on earth - We'll be back :-)

We loved the unit in CHALET Brunner.... beautiful apartment, contemporary furniture, stunning views from the walk-out living room, quiet location ( a bit up the hill, 5 min walk from "center"/ train station etc). We heard the cow bells and looked up the mountain at the glaciers (once the clouds allowed it) Our stay could not have been more relaxing (just wished there would have been less rain, but that's out of everybody's control, right?).
The owner did an excellent job in replying to my numerous emails before our arrival - it was great - definitely want to be back for a longer stay than the 4 nights we had this time.
Thank you, Paul!

Wengen,

Summer or Winter,I just cant decide -

The resort lies on a wind-protected sun terrace at the foot of the Jungfrau, 400 metres above the Lauterbrunnen valley at an altitude of 1274 m.

With its nostalgic timber houses, Wengen has retained all the character of a picture-postcard mountain village. Opening widely to the south west, the terrace guarantees above-average hours of sunshine.

The key excursion destinations within the Jungfrau region can all be reached easily from Wengen. Climbers on the Eiger north face – one of the world’s most spectacular and difficult climbing faces – can be observed by telescope from the Kleine Scheidegg.Take the train to Europe,s highest railway station,see the glaciers,and you can reach the Schilthorn summit from the valley floor resort of Lauterbrunnen. Ski in Ski out!

Other Activities: Kayaking, Boating, Snowboarding, Tubing, Rock Climbing

Notes:
Chalet Brunner is ideally situated just 8 minutes walk from the centre of the village in a sunny position with views of the Jungfrau from the terrace and of the wonderful Lauterbrunnen Valley from the balconies. It has three spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms and a separate toilet. For skiers, there is a heated ski room where you can leave your boots and skis-its fully secured and you will have your own key. It has a large lounge with dining area and relaxing sofas and there is plenty of space to relax whilst enjoying the heat from the log burning stove. The kitchen is fully equipped and you can dine on the terrace whilst enjoying the fabulous scenery. Tables and chairs are provided for both the terrace and balconies, so just relax and enjoy the view. Chalet Brunner is a ski in ski out location, you can literally ski right back to the front door, just remember to stop! For the ramblers there are unlimited trails right on the doorstep. I can't emphasise enough how beautiful Wengen is.
