The Jungfrau region has around 500 kilometres of hiking trails of varying lengths and difficulty with fantastic opportunities to spot wildlife such as ibex and chamois or various alpine birds. Lauterbrunnen is the departure point for the most spectacular mountain cog railways and cable cars in Europe. The mountain restaurants are open throughout the year offering breathtaking views. Cycle routes vary from gentle along the valley floor to steep mountain passes or proper downhill tracks. Bicycles are easily rented in the village and are allowed on most mountain trains. The lakes have lidos and beaches all along the shores and there is a heated open air swimming pool in the village. For those who want more adrenalin, white water rafting, canoeing, mountaineering, paragliding, hang gliding, bungy jumping and skydiving are all available in the surrounding area.

Winter season: Winter in Lauterbrunnen is ideal for skiers and non-skiers alike: There are 213km of pistes for skiers and snowboarders and 45 chair lifts, cable cars and trains to choose from in the Jungfrau region. Lauterbrunnen is nestled in the valley between the ski resorts of Mürren and Wengen and offers easy and fast access to both areas.

A cross country trail skirts the apartment. For non skiers there are more than 100km of winter hiking trails, 5okm of sledding trails and a couple of snowshoe trails.

About Diarmuid Conaty

Apart from our unusual names, we are bound by a love of this area and the outdoors. We met in Interlaken in 2004.

About D: A true Irishman although I have been in this area for over ten years. My love of snow brought me here, but with time I have come to appreciate the summers more and more. I am a qualified rafting and canyoning guide and work mostly in rope access.

About Kashi: My passport is Belgian and although I was born there, I have spent most of my life abroad. My parents instilled me with an unquenchable lust for travel and adventure. Since growing up in Nepal, I have lived and worked in the outdoors in Spain, Mexico, Nepal, Italy and Austria but decided to settle in this beautiful area. The last six years I have been employed as a photographer, hiking and snowshoeing guide, ski instructor, tour guide and event planner. Currently I am mostly a mom, the toughest and most rewarding job ever!

About Keanu: Born in Interlaken in 2008, I am a Swiss-born Belgian Paddy. I share my parents' love for water and I really like the Octonauts, diggers and my wolf Igor. I go crazy for cheddar cheese, and love to talk on skype.

About Kiran: Born in April 2010, I am the latest addition to the family. I'm a happy kid, I refuse to acknowledge that I'm the youngest and I love all animals

We are enamored with this area and there is not a day that goes by that we do not think we are the luckiest people to be able to live here.

Diarmuid Conaty purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Diarmuid Conaty chose Lauterbrunnen

Chosen for it's unique location; perfect for summer activities and nestled between fabulous ski resorts, we decorated the apartment just like we would like to find a holiday home. The kitchen is very well equipped (we love to cook and eat well) and we have all the accessories you may want for small children. It's well connected via public transport but in a quiet area. It's a perfect starting point for all your Swiss adventures!

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this amazing apartment with our two and four year olds for 5 days and loved every minute of it! The booking was easy from start to finish. Cascia and D are very attentive to customer's needs and are a big help in learning about the area and things to do.

The first thing we noticed about the apartment was how clean it was. The second thing we noticed was how the owners went the extra mile and provided spices, oils, and other basics for cooking, as well as dishes and a wooden stool for the kids. She even offered to bring a high chair if we needed it. They made it kid-friendly (with leather furniture) while still maintaining a modern feel. Little things like this make a big difference in creating a home away from home on vacation.

The location was perfect. An unobscured view of the mountains and Staubbach falls while sitting on the patio. Beautiful green grass and babbling brook running through the backyard. A bus stop nearby and only a short walk into town. We didn't even need our vehicle.

Very well stocked kitchen with all the utensils you'll need. It was wonderful to have a washer and dryer there to wash clothes! The toys, books, and movies were also a nice touch.

This is an apartment where the owners are most concerned with making your stay very memorable. :-D We'd definitely like to go back again!

A gem of a find.

  • 5 of 5
We find usually the photos of the accomodation are better than the real thing. This appartment was better than the photos! Everything was like new, clean and all the appliances worked. The kitchen was very well equipped. Bathroom quite large (lots of hot water) and beds clean and comfy.
We did not use the car all week. The cable cars and trains are wonderful and on time. Walks can be as difficult or as easy as you want and are well signposted. On a clear day do not hesitate go to Schilthorn as the views are magnificent.
Eating out can be very expensive but the camp site over the river at the side of the appartment is good value fresh food with friendly service and not too far to walk back after a busy day.
The town is 10 minutes walk with bank, supermarket, cafes, restaurants etc. We realised we could not have been more central and liked Lauterbrunnen the best of the towns around. I would have no hesitation at all to recommend this property.

Komfortable Ferienwohnung in ruhiger Lage

  • 4 of 5
Bei unserer Ankunft fanden wir eine komfortable Ferienwohnung vor die der Beschreibung entsprach. Die Ferienwohnung liegt ruhig in einer Ferienhaussiedlung mit guter Nahverkehrsanbindung. Mit Skischuhen lässt sich die Haltestelle in 2 Minuten erreichen.
Die Einrichtung ist gemütlich und lädt zum Faulenzen nach einem langen Skitag ein. Die Ausstattung mit Geräten in der Küche und zum Entertainment ist üppig und WLAN ist selbstverständlich. Sauberkeit und Ordnung lassen keine Wünsche offen. D. kümmerte sich vorbildlich um unser Wohlergehen und bereits vor der Anreise erhielten wir viele Tipps zum Skifahren und den örtlichen Gegebenheiten.
Wir würden die Wohnung jederzeit wieder buchen oder unseren Freunden empfehlen.

Great apartment , fantastic location

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in this apartment was great, it was really clean and the location was perfect. We loved the setting and it was very peaceful.. The owners were extremely lovely to deal with and the description of their apartment was accurate. The apartment was well set up and included tracking sticks that were fantastic to use on the mountain walks plus everything else you could possibly think of.

We spent 8 days here and there was just so much to see and do I wish we had booked for longer. The scenery from the apartment is picturesque and the beautiful stream and river just added to the appeal of the place. We bought a 5 day Jungfrau pass and used the train, cable cars and the boats in Interlaken. There are so many opportunities to walk beautiful tracks in the mountains plus flat paths near the village. We visited a couple of the restaurants and cafe's that Cassia and D recommended in there guest booklet and they were all really good. We would definitely recommend this property and hope we will be able to visit again. Banff Family Qld Australia

Lauterbrunnen is probably the most impressive glaciated valley in the Alps, inspiring people such as Goethe and Tolkien. No less than 72 waterfalls cascade down the mountains. The village centre is a mere 10 min. stroll along the river, where you may find restaurants and shops, banks and the tourist office. Across the street there is a small convenience store. Lauterbrunnen is a perfect base for your adventures: spectacular mountain railways and cable cars whisk you past Wengen, famous for the Lauberhorn ski race, on to Kleine Scheidegg with breathtaking views of the Eiger, the Mönch and the Jungfrau and on to the Jungfraujoch, the highest train station in Europe. Across the valley, Mürren awaits you with even more dramatic views, and 2 cable cars further you reach Schilthorn with its revolving restaurant. The area has hundreds of miles of summer hiking trails and endless skiing options, with a cross country piste skirting the apartment. All airports connect easily by rail.
