Those looking for something unusual, rare or simply typical Swiss should go on the main street of the old town, where everything shall fulfil your heart’s desires.

The view of the castle Oberhofen is not only something special during the day, even at night and during fog it has its charm. Then the castle is, in fact, lit and looks as mystical as a fairy tale.

Tolle Ferien im Berner Oberland

  • 5 of 5
Wir verbrachten einen wunderschönen Urlaub in Oberhofen. Schon vor unserer Ankunft hatten wir stets einen guten Kontakt mit dem Vermieter. Bei unserer Ankunft sind wir herzlichst begrüsst und mit den Gebäulichkeiten vertraut gemacht worden. Die Unterkunft Campnaula ist sehr gemütlich eingerichtet und bietet einen überwältigenden Ausblick. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und mit allem ausgestattet was für einen tollen Urlaub nötig ist. Die Naturbetten waren ein Traum aber auch die Zeit in der Sauna oder am Swimmingpool haben wir sehr genossen. Herzlichen Dank für alles. S.S

Die Wohnung hat exakt der Beschreibung im Internet entsprochen.

Alles war sehr sauber und in einwandfreiem Zustand.

Wir hatten eine super Betreuung durch die Schlüsselhalterin und den Vermieter.

Wir können diese Unterkunft nur weiter empfehlen.

Uns hat die Umgebung fasziniert, besonders die Hängebrücke in Sigriswil, der Öschinen See sowie das Uhrenmuseum, und Schlossmuseum in Oberhofen.

Bestimmt kommen wir wieder. Eventuell sogar mit Freunden, wenn's dann noch Platz hat..

Der Ideale Unterkunft für einen romantischen Kurzurlaub. Die Aussicht in die Berge und über den See ist unvergleichlich. Die Wohnung ist sehr gemütlich eingerichtet, die Betten sind sehr bequem. Die Sauna- und der Ruheraum können privat genutzt werden und ist für sich eine Spezialität. Die Betreuung war sehr freundlich und unkompliziert. Gern kommen wir wieder... (wenn's noch Platz hat..)
Wir freuen uns auf bald.

Freundliche Grüsse

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