Wengen Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This luxury top floor apartment is on two levels and forms part of a new build chalet with an elevator situated in a quiet, prime location at the top of the nursery slope, making it ski-in/ski-out whilst only three minutes walk from the centre of Wengen and its railway station. The apartment is bright and welcoming and sleeps up to 8 people. The apartment has been furnished to a very high specification as a home from home and enjoys underfloor central heating and continuous hot water. It has one double room with a king sized bed and en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower and separate bath; a twin room with en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower and separate bath; a further twin room; a guest bathroom with bath and integral shower; and a gallery sitting room above with cable TV/Radio/DVD, two double sofa beds, cupboards, and a separate toilet and basin. The main open plan living space has a comfortable sitting area which contains cable TV, radio, DVD, wire free internet and a log fire. The open plan kitchen is extremely well equipped for those who like to cook with a large oven, hob, microwave, two fridges and a dishwasher. All kitchen utensils are first class and the crockery is bone china. The kitchen and large dining table look out across the Lauterbrunnen Valley and lead onto a sheltered balcony with a seating area and excellent views of the Jungfrau mountain range and the Silberhorn. In addition, there is a further balcony off two of the bedrooms with superb views towards the slopes and glacier. There is a ski room in the basement where skis and boots can be stored in the winter and a further bikes and pram storeroom which contains a full sized table tennis table. There is also use of a shared sauna to relax in at the end of a busy day.

Wengen is a traditional Swiss mountain village with spectacular scenery which retains a special atmosphere due to it being accessible only by railway. It is the ideal location for both skiers and non-skiers with skiing for all abilities and hiking trails available all year round. The locals are courteous and friendly and the compact village centre boasts excellent bars and restaurants, a cinema, two supermarkets, a pharmacy, a hotel spa and sports shops for hiring equipment from skis to bicycles. In addition to skiing in the winter, there is ice skating and curling available and plenty of sledding runs. In the summer there are tennis courts, an open-air heated swimming pool close to the apartment and crazy golf. All manner of mountain sports are available in the vicinity from white water rafting to climbing and paragliding. The tourist information office in the village is always extremely helpful.

Roger and Pat Bickerdike live in Yorkshire in the North of England with their two teenage daughters, their demanding beagle and three eccentric cats. Roger is a barrister specialising in family law.

Julie Doyle purchased this apartment in 2008

We were lucky enough to be introduced to Wengen by some friends who had been coming here for years and since then we have been back every year too! We think that Wengen is one of the most beautiful places in the world and it is somewhere that people are drawn back to time and again once experienced. Whether you want to have a venue for outdoor activity or total relaxation it is stunning in both winter and summer and there is something here for everyone.

The apartment enjoys a prime location at the top of the nursery slope so for skiers it is ski-in and out whilst being only three minutes walk from the town centre. It is located in a quiet, elevated position with fabulous views across the valley and mountain ranges with endless hiking trails on the doorstep. The apartment is very quiet, comfortable and relaxing and with two living areas and separate satellite TV boxes you can accommodate different entertainment needs such as adults and teens, for example. The table tennis table and sauna in the basement are available for all Aquila residents and there is a ski room for ski equipment and a store room for buggies and bikes, which can be hired from Centralsport in the village.

Spectacular mountain setting!

Our family of four adults just spent a wonderful week in this beautiful apartment in the mountain village of Wengen. The apartment was spacious, comfortable and very well appointed with spectacular views of the mountains from the balconies. You can start your hikes from the door or catch the train for sightseeing just a few minutes down the road in the village. Our most memorable hike was along the north face of the Eiger wich afforded jaw-dropping views of the area! You can stroll easily to the quaint village of Wengen where you can find many delightful shops and restaurants. Wengen is a truly special place and staying in this "home-away from home" made it all the more memorable!

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you loved Wengen and our apartment as much as we do. Wengen is indeed a special place, a very old and atmospheric village in a stunning setting. We always intended our apartment to be a "home from home" so it is lovely to see guests describing it in that way.

This was our first VRBO experience and it was terrific!! The place was beautiful - even better than pictured! Would definitely recommend, although suggest you eat somewhere else than Wengen as it is very expensive. Great stay, and we loved the cowbells - they sounded like windchimes.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a positive review; we are delighted that you loved it so much! Yes, some of the restaurants in Wengen are expensive, but there are other good ones which are reasonably priced -we'll leave the details in the apartment next time we go.

We have had a lovely stay in apartment 8, Aquila. There is something for everyone in Wengen, from difficult ski runs for experienced skiers to sledge runs for small children. We would definitely recommend the purple runs. The ski runs and views from Manlichen are very good. Café Almend does excellent rosti and we have had good Gluhwein everywhere!

We have had a good time in your apartment. The only thing we missed were the dishes for cooked eggs, we only found 2 egg holders/cups. All the rest, and that is 99.99%! was perfect. Our children loved the extra TV in the attic. If you want to do so, leave instructions for the fireplace please, we didn’t dare to touch it. We come to Wengen since 1976 and have been to many chalets and half the hotels but the Bickerdike apartment number 8 in Aquila is one of the nicest places. We would like to come back!

Dear Family Bickerdike, we’ve been visiting Wengen for about 20 years now. Often we were in Falken or in a chalet/other apartment. Now for the first time in your beautiful place. We’ve enjoyed it very much. It’s comfortable, cosy, and very well equipped. This week was a wonderful ski week. Only today (26th) some lifts didn’t go up because of the wind. It’s also snowing which is great for the people yet to come. All our best.
