AND WHY CHOOSE LEUKERBAD?
It is the small brother to Saas Fe, Zermatt, and Crans Montana, and still preserves the feel of a mountain village and is BETTER VALUE than it's neighbours!!
A bit about the village....: All facilities/shops are within walking distance from Residenz Ambassador, so for those who prefer not to drive, it is not essential to have a car whilst in Leukerbad. Public transport gets you to Leukerbad with Swiss efficiency, by train and then connecting bus. The tourist information in the town has information on all walks and activities available and the bus station can book tickets for excursions out of Leukerbad, to local towns like Zermatt or as far away as Milan and Rome.
German is the main language in Leukerbad but English works well if you want it to. You can also use French and Italian, so don't let language be a barrier to experiencing this delightful little town - plenty of old, quiet Swiss charm (you can hear the cow bells tinkling from the balcony in the Summer months), soaring and dramatic snow capped mountains surround the village, and you can watch the tumbling waterfalls from both balconies in the apartment.
Shops and facilities: .Walking distance to the many restaurants and shops. The shops include: Migros supermarket, Pharmacy, Wine Shop, Bakery, Charcuterie, Fromagerie with lots of local cheeses, Tourist Information, Banks, two Ski Hire and Outdoor Clothing Shops, Chemist. Beautician and Hairdressers, and Beauty and Wellness treatments at the Lindner Alpentherme, along with great medical facilities.

About Tina and Tony Geary
We both live in the UK but have always had one foot in Europe - and love Switzerland because it is so central - north to Germany, west to France and south to Italy. We love exploring different cultures. Tina is a relationship therapist and book blogger, and Tony runs his own company.
Tina and Tony Geary purchased this apartment in 2007
Why Tina and Tony Geary chose Leukerbad
We spent several years choosing location and when we discovered Leukerbad it ticked all 10 boxes - we wanted somewhere where you don't need a car, for example; you can walk to all amenities; there is a good infrastructure; and the biggest plus are the Thermal Baths... until you have tried bobbing in bubbling waters under a clear night sky....
What makes this apartment unique
We have a great concierge who looks after all our guests and is always ready with a helping hand - the general tranquility, centreal location, views and cosiness all attracted us to this property. We hope you will enjoy them too.
