Amazing appartment!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time in Switzerland. The apartment is a beautiful, large and luxurious modern condo with breathtaking views of the Thunersee/Oberhofen/Alps.
The owner and house keeper were very friendly and ready to help with any question or concern. Very well located for any adventure at Bernese Oberlander or even to go around in Switzerland. We enjoyed Kandersted, Chateau Chillon, Gruyeres, Berne and the local castles. The trip in the boat at the Thunersee and Brienzersee is a must.
We can not wait to return

Thank you for a WONDERFUL weekend!!!

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I spent a fantastic weekend in Oberhofen thanks to Otium Erholungs! The apartement is beautiful and clean, the kitchen equipped with everything we needed and beyond, the sauna was great and the landscape is just unbelievable. At night we walked along the lake to Thun (about 1 hour walk- beautiful!), there we had dinner in a very nice Italian restaurant and went to a concert we enjoyed very much- all according to owner Markus Achermann's recommandations. We had a wonderful time and got back home super relaxed and happy! Very romantic place and highly recommended!! Looking forward to stay there again!

Oasis of silence - Oase der Ruhe

  • 5 of 5
Die Residenz Otium war einfach zu finden und der Empfang herzlich. Schnell waren die Besonderheiten der Wohnung Helianthus und der Spa-Bereich im Erdgeschoss erklärt und einem langen erholsamen Wochenende am Thunersee stand nichts mehr im Weg. Die Wohnung mit 3 Doppelschlafzimmer ist sehr grosszügig und glänzt mit einer riesigen Fensterfront mit Blick auf den See und in die Berner Alpen. Die Liegen auf der Terrasse sind windgeschütz und so lassen sich die letzten warmen Sonnenstrahlen des Jahres bestens geniessen.
Die Küche ist mit allem Komfort und voll ausgestattet, wir haben jedoch nur Zuhause gefrühstückt und dafür von den in der Wohnung aufliegendenen Restaurantsempfehlungen Gebrauch gemacht (Vinothek in Thun ist ein Volltreffer).
Die Wohnung Helianthus hat zwei Badezimmer, wobei eines mit begehbarer Dusche komplett erneuert wurde und beim grossen Bad mit Wanne zum Teil ältere Armaturen belassen wurde welche jedoch voll funktionstüchtig sind und der Wohnung ihren Charme verleihen. Man sieht dass alle Erneuerungen durchdacht und mit Liebe zum Detail mit Schweizer Handwerkskunst erstellt wurden. Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber und man fühlt sich sofort Zuhause da alles so eingerichtet ist wie man es auch Zuhause machen würde. In der Garage stehen Mountainbikes zur freien Benützung. Direkt neben dem Haus führt ein Steig runter zum Dorf wo in der Bäckerei frisches Brot erhältlich ist. Sehr empfehlenswert ist auch der Tip vom Besitzer, ein Fussmarsch dem See/Aare entlang vorbei an Wohnquartieren und Villenviertel ins beschauliche Thun. Bern ist nur eine halbe Stunde entfernt, das Paul Klee Museum liegt direkt am Weg und ist ein Zwischenstop wert. In Bern ist das Restaurant Kornhauskeller nicht nur kulinarisch sondern auch optisch (riesiger Gewölbekeller) ein Besuch wert.

Wir haben ein fantastisches Wochenende am Thunersee verbracht. Besten Dank an den Vermieter und sein Team vor Ort - wir kommen gerne wieder und können das Objekt wärmstens empfehlen.

  • Grander Water - A lively holiday with revitalized water Througout the entire 'Haus Otium' our guests will enjoy the special 'Grander water'. The energized water is a treat - when showering or bathing, drinking from the fountain, and of course in our pool and spa area. When Johann Grander discovered the 'revival' of water a few years ago, he would hardly have known what triumph his discovery would be around the globe. Through his method, the original force of the water, which is lost due to environmental influences and transport in pressure lines, is restored. Moreover, through the 'revival' the natural magnetism is enhanced in water. Thus, the structure of water is changed in time and we can speak of finer taste of the water, longer shelf life, enhanced well-being, and tastier food.

  • Restore your life force in your sleep. All our flats are equipped with natural beds from Hüsler or Samina. In natural beds, natural materials are used, which have a positive effect on recovery and sleep quality. Therefore, only the highest quality materials are used in the preparation of those products. The stuff of which the 'dream beds' are made of are from pure natural, breathable cotton, filled with 100% organic sheep's wool, obtained from free roaming sheep. Warming in winter, cooling in summer - pillows and blankets with wool provide a completely natural way for a harmonious and dry-warm bed climate. The unique clamping force of the untreated ash wood slats and the natural elasticity of natural rubber are the success factors for the orthopedic important relief and support of the body during sleep. Here, the free-swinging slat frame is at the centre.
