Rob & Susi Weaver purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Rob & Susi Weaver chose Lauterbrunnen

Susi comes from St Gallen in Switzerland so it was a natural development for us to buy an apartment near ski resorts and beautiful, walking areas. We fell in love with this property and area immediately, as you will too.

What makes this apartment unique

The view from the balcony is tremendous all year round. The chalet is warm and inviting and so convenient for everything. The balcony is so warm for most parts of the year but the apartment is cool in the summer and cosy in the winter with underfloor heating.

Perfect Choice, A++

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful, modern apartment in a beautiful, ancient valley. Everything inside and out is delightful! If you've never experienced the Lauterbrunnen area you will be amazed at the abundance of waterfalls, hiking tracks and scenic viewing available right out the door. The small town is within walking distance, and gondolas and trains get you up to the rim of the valley for even more spectacular views and hiking. We have vacationed in this area many times in the last 25 years, in spring, summer and fall. I'm sure we will be back again.

The Weavers' apartment is A++. It is large, clean, modern. The kitchen and bathrooms are large, the showers are large, and we really appreciated the laundry and dishwasher. My wife and I stayed with our two sons and their wives for a week. We never ran out of hot water, and never felt crowded with 6 in the place. The beds and bedding are great and each bedroom has a great window view. The apartment is actually even nicer than it appears in the pictures on the website.

We found this property via the internet. Rob was always quick with communication, very easy to deal with. It was no problem to set up everything from the States months in advance. When we arrived it was all as advertised. The Weavers provide a local agent to deal with customers, but we never needed to call her since everything was faultless. I highly recommend this apartment!

A Feast for the Eyes! Spectacular all around!

  • 5 of 5
Overall a fantastic experience!
Rob was extremely responsive, attentive, and accommodating throughout the booking process and our stay. He made the experience not only easy, but a true pleasure. I appreciated his sending along tips and activities for the area as well. This was a great introduction to the wonderful apartment.

The apartment is easy to find, well located in the valley (not too far from town and right by a bus stop), with parking large enough for our large American van. It was spotlessly clean and the manager, Helena, was also great. It fit our three generation family perfectly. It's spacious and comfortable. The apartment has everything you might need. The kitchen is well appointed and even has fondue and raclette. It has spectacular views of the waterfalls, valley and peaks.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! I recommend this property so highly there are not enough adjectives! Thank you!

Great location with excellent facilities

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time skiing in Switzerland and the excellent location and facilities provided at this chalet, coupled with the helpful support and guidance provided by the owners, made it a truly wonderful experience. There is a wide variety of ski areas available on both sides of the valley and the transport system of buses, trains and gondolas is efficient and, in true Swiss tradition, on time.
The views from the valley and on the mountains are exhilarating and I'm sure it is equally enjoyable in spring, summer, autumn and winter. Unfortunately, we didn't have the time to travel around much but the train journey from Basel to Lauterbrunnen gave a brief taster of the many areas around that are worth a visit.
The chalet apartment itself is very well appointed with all the facilities necessary for self catering although there are many eating places around if you want a break and a meal at the nearby camping site proved excellent value for money. The two bathrooms made the apres-ski ablutions easy to organise and the beds were very comfortable.
Overall, it is impossible to find fault with either the chalet apartment or its location and we can whole-heartedly recommend it and the local area.

My heart is in the mountains...

  • 5 of 5
We had high expectations for our visit to Lauterbrunnen, after reading all the glossy brochures, but nothing could have prepared us for the alpine paradise that we found.
We so enjoyed our ten day, holiday staying at Susi and Rob Weaver’s beautiful, warm and well equipped first floor apartment. with wonderful views looking down the valley of 72 waterfalls, Swiss lodges and the sound of clanging cow bells, from the cattle in the flower laden meadows, and all only ten minutes walk from the centre of Lauterbrunnen. This is a bustling village with all the essential shops and train and bus services covering the Jungfrau area, also to Interlaken if you want the big shops.
The alpine gardens at Murren were interesting, and we took the train to Kleine Scheidegg, and walked down to Mannlichen for refreshment, and returned to Lauterbrunnen by train and bus. For the whole day we were surrounded by spectacular scenery and snow capped mountains and lovely clear air. There are so many walks and sights to choose from.
A special visit was taking the swaying cable car up to the 360 degree revolving restaurant on Schilthorn, where part of the 007 film ‘On His Majesty’s Service’ was shot. The air was crystal clear but even with the sun out it was quite cold! At 9,700ft there are amazing views of the awe- inspiring Jungfrau, Eiger and Monch, and their neighbouring mountains, and all the way down to the lakes miles below.
From the apartment there is a lovely level 3km walk along the valley to the Trummelbach Falls where ten glacier waterfalls thunder through the centre of the mountain. Also worth a visit was the local museum, full of artefacts and information of life over the years in Lauterbrunnen.

Fantastic light and airy modern apartment

  • 5 of 5
We arrived late in the evening with no idea of what surrounded us after a long drive from Calais somewhat tired and looking forward to a comfortable bed the apartment did not disappoint it was clean, spacious and very welcoming.
We woke up the next morning to fabulous and breathtaking views of the mountains ,waterfall and stream.This is a place of outstanding beauty ,certainly worth the long drive.
Lena and Tina(management team) greeted us that morning and were very helpful .They informed us on all the local attractions ,amenities plus were at
hand to answer general queries.
The local campsite with its mini supermarket and restaurant were very reasonable ,we would also recommend that you purchase a 6 day swiss pass to enable you to travel on the local boat and mountain Jungfrau railway as it can be quite expensive on there own.
We loved our time here as a family so much we have re booked for next year.

A Second Visit to This Magical Area

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to this superb apartment, in what must be one of the best locations in Europe.

With views of snow-capped mountains in mid-summer, plus the staubbach falls, tandem parachute jumpers landing just across the road and base-jumpers appearing from the mountain tops, what more could we have asked for.

Thanks to owners Rob and Susi, and to Tina and Lena, Rob's local managers, who all helped to make this another unforgettable holiday for our family.

We shall return.

The Lauterbrunnen Valley is surrounded by the unspoilt natural beauty of the magnificent Swiss Alps including the Eiger mountain. Lauterbrunnen's cascading 300 metre high Staubbach waterfall, viewed from all bedrooms, becomes even more impressive when illuminated at night. The famous Trummelbach falls inside the Jungfrau are a short walk away. An easy 30 minutes' walk along the valley brings you to Stechelberg with access to superb mountain walking. 10 minutes walk in the other direction are the main shops, restaurants, banks and post office. There is also a yellow Postbus which takes only 3 minutes to the station. Interlaken is 20 minutes drive or train ride away with its wide variety of shops and lake pursuits.

Lauterbrunnen is a great base to explore the Jungfrau Ski Region. There are 45 mountain trains, cable cars, chair and ski lifts, with 210km of pistes for skiers, 100km of winter hiking and cross-country tracks, and 50km of sledge runs.

Other Activities: heli-skiing, helicopter rides, hotel spas

Golf: There is a qualtiy 9 hole course in Interlaken about 20 minutess drive away.

Other Sports

White water rafting in late Spring/Early Summer

Shooting

Ski: The prices in Switzerland are fairly comparable with UK and many other countries. For example here are the skiing prices:The three areas covering 213 km of pistes are linked with a single pass: 2 days about 130CHF, 6 days about 300CHF. Individual passes valid for each area: 1 day about 60CHF, 2 days 110CHF. All the resorts have ski schools offering both daily classes and private lessons in skiing and snowboarding. Ski hire is available in Lauterbrunnen.

The cross country skiing track is situated right outside our chalet.

Why stay in Wengen where apartments rent for about 50% more than ours when ours is so accessible to Wengen and Mürren?
