LUXURY APARTMENT WITH LARGE SUN TERRACE AND VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
We returned to this apartment for a second visit as it provides everything one needs for a relaxing holiday. This is by far the most luxurious apartment we have discovered on our trips around Europe. The apartment is exceptionally well equipped with high quality appliances and very tastefully furnished. The owners excellent insight into the needs of their tenants is apparent in the well organised and informative information pack. Their attention to fine detail is in evidence throughout the apartment, even down to the provision of continental electrical plug adaptors for English three-pin appliances.
The apartment's exceptionally quiet location coupled with the very comfortable, soft mattress in the double bedroom meant we slept well and awoke refreshed.
The apartment, which affords splendid views over Chateau D'Oex, is situated on a hill in La Frasse, a one kilometre walk from the station.
During our stay we covered most of the picturesque local walks and then explored further afield with the benefit of the good value Geneva Regional Pass. On hot days we cooled off on boat trips around Lake Thun and Lake Geneva, easily accessed by train from Chateau D'Oex. The local trains have panoramic carriages, even for 2nd class passengers, which enable one to fully appreciate the exceptional beauty of the Saanen Valley, between Chamby and Gstaad. And for nostalgics there are trains with 'Classic' carriages which depart from Chateau d'Oex around midday, which evoke memories of even more leisurely and luxurious rail travel.
Our only disappointment was that the region's wide variety of cable cars and ski lifts, (which were included in our Geneva Regional Pass), undergo their annual maintenance during the month of June. Thus, we were unable to extend the scope for walks with great views on this visit.
On our return from outings we looked forward to a relaxing swim & sauna before early evening drinks on the terrace.
Perhaps the greatest compliment we can pay the owners is that we felt so utterly relaxed in their apartment, that we never even felt tempted to go out of an evening or to visit any of the, apparently excellent, local restaurants. All we wanted to do was to dine in, to maximise the time spent in the luxurious surroundings of our temporary 'Home'.

WONDERFUL APARTMENT FOR OUR SWISS VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in late May at this lovely apartment and would highly recommend it! The building has been beautifully restored and this ground floor apartment was perfect for us with my husband’s parents. It is very conveniently laid out with a bedroom and bath on either side of the salon, and the nice kitchen made it possible for us to eat many meals enjoying the lovely view from the terrace. The resident manager was very helpful and the building has lots of amenities, which add to a wonderful stay—indoor pool was beautiful! The apartment and shared facilities were very clean and nicely furnished.

The apartment owner was extremely easy to work with and provided LOTS of helpful information including driving directions, suggestions for things to do in the area as well as information on shopping and parking. We rented a car and drove from the Geneva airport, and we found the car especially helpful for my in-laws, who have a bit of trouble walking on steep hills. We also had rail passes and found travel from Chateau d’Oex very easy by train, traveling to Montreaux, Lucerne and Wengen. We wholeheartedly recommend this apartment!

CHATEAU D'OEX DELIGHTS

Chateau d'Oex Delights
  • 5 of 5
Ideal location on the Golden Pass rail line, Chateau d'Oex is a lovely typical Swiss village. The apartment is a pleasant (but partly uphill) 15 minute walk from the train station and 5 minute walk to the village making it a great base.
The owner provided excellent information before the holiday which enabled us to properly plan our holiday, There was nothing we needed to know that we were not made aware of.
We were met by Angelo who was professional but friendly and provided us all the necessary information about the apartment and facilities at the complex, The entire complex was as described and a bit more.
Patrick the Manager was also very helpful and friendly and gave some good tips on days out.
The apartment was spotless when we arrived and had everything you could need for a holiday. The Terrace was wonderful with great views and plenty of furniture (just as the picture suggests) and we saw almost daily hot air balloons drifting past.
We will have no hesitation in recommending this property to Friends and family who want to experience the beauty of Switzerland with the comfort of home.
Using the Swiss regional pass ticket (which saved a lot of money) rather than hiring a car enabled us to enjoy all the views as the efficient train, bus and boat systems could be relied on and were all very comfortable using the 2nd class ticket.
The Swiss people are very friendly and even if they spoke as little English as we did French were able to provide good service.
Recommended places to visit would be Gstaad, Gruyeres, Spiez, Montreaux and the Chillon castle, a boat trip on lake Geneva, but an absolute must is Rochers-de-Naye the views are breathtaking.
We cant wait for another Swiss holiday in Chateau d'Oex

A PERFECT WEEK

  • 5 of 5
Just back from a perfect week in Chateau D'Oex. The appartment was ideal with great facilities (pool and sauna). This is the third time at the resort and would highly recommend it. The skiing was great and a sector 1 pass with a 5 min train journey to Rougemount opens up the skiing all the way to Gstaad. Found all the locals very friendly and the coop in the village proved very handy. The appartment is furnished to a very high standard and we will definately be heading back, winter or summer.

ROOMS WITH A VIEW

  • 5 of 5
This is a superbly equipped apartment with magnificent views. It accommodates four adults comfortably and the outside balcony space is the best in the block, from where you can enjoy the scenery that is even better than expected.

The apartment is situated about 1/2 mile from the centre of Chateau D'Oex, up a fairly steep hill, so if you don't take a car you need to be prepared for this. This was not a problem for us, as we went for some fresh air and exercise, both of which are in plentiful supply.

The 'Gstaad Easy Access Pass' is worth looking at, especially if you fancy going up the half a dozen or so cable cars that operate in summer months. These passes are 12 SF per person per day, for a minimum of three days, and give you free access to the cable cars and (most) trains to get to them (some of the panoramic trains are excluded). When you consider that the cable car in Chateau D'Oex (for example) is 20 SF per person alone, the passes soon pay for themselves.

Otherwise there are some fantastic walks to be enjoyed, limited only by fitness! The paths are very well signposted, giving a rough idea in hours / minutes of how far away your destination is. There is a leaflet that shows some of the popular routes, which is very useful. We walked to Rougemont, Rossiniere and down from La Braye, which is the local summit (if it's wet the lower parts are quite tricky as they become slippery).
We also hired bikes and used similar 'off-road' routes to reach Gstaad, an activity which we'd also recommend.

If you have any energy left, the gym and pool in the apartment block are both good. The outside pool in Chateau D'Oex is huge (50m x 25m) and also worth a visit on days where it's too hot to do much else. Entrance is cheap and the cafe / bar good value / quality.

Switzerland is quite expensive, especially with the exchange rate as it is. However, Le Richemont at the bottom of the hill serves good quality food (especially pizzas) at very reasonable prices and has a lively atmosphere.
Otherwise the local Co Op is well stocked, so eating at the apartment and enjoying the views was never a hardship.

A holiday at the Rosat complex can be whatever you want to make it - relaxing in the sun, simply enjoying the views, walking, cycling and sightseeing - in any combination you wish.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday here and would have no hesitation recommending this apartment. We'll definitely be back.

  • 5 of 5
Apartment was great , photos do not do this place justice !!!. We never tired of looking at the views from the balcony and was wonderful waking up and looking out . The apartment has everything you need and was a pleasure to return to at the end of a tiring day - immaculate/clean . The village has lots of nice reataurants/cafes and a coop supermarket - make note of the closing times !! . The connections to Gruyere and Gstaad were easy to get to . I hope to return soon !!!
