A week in Chateau D'Oex

A week in Chateau D'Oex

We were most impressed with this apartment and its very attractive setting. There were stunning views to the mountains from the living room window, especially attractive at sunset. The village offered us a good variety of places to eat and quality food shops when we wished to cook for ourselves. The comfort of their visitors has been high on the owners’ priorities, because the apartment has been fully and thoughtfully equipped. We found the range of tourist leaflets and maps particularly useful. We also much enjoyed the facilities offered within the apartment complex, particularly the heated swimming pool, the gym and petanque court. The numerous and well-signed hiking trails in the area provided us with opportunity to walk in superbly attractive alpine scenery.

Great overall experience

  • 4 of 5
My family and I were extremely happy with our stay at La Residence Rosat. Liz and Steve’s apartment is very well appointed, the building is quiet and secure, and the on-site manager helpful. We were not overly disappointed by the lack of snow during our stay, as we were able to take full advantage of the amenities in the building (pool, sauna…) and visit local attractions by train (Gruyere, Gstaad). The only downsides were the uneven wi-fi coverage in the apartment and the 15-20-minute walk to the supermarket and train station. Otherwise, I recommend this rental without hesitation.

Great vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful apartment with everything as described. We love to cook and the clean kitchen was well equipped. The quaint town has a large grocery store, two bakeries, several restaurants and a train station all a 10-15 minute walk away (uphill coming back to the apartment!). The view from the terrace into the valley is spectacular with hot air balloons spotted frequently in the early morning hours. The beds were comfortable with good reading lights and the rooms had ample storage space. Living room and dining room were also cozy. The swimming pool was a nice to have with few people using it. The internet connection in the apartment was a bit spotty but always accessible in one area. Loads of maps and guides full of activities for several weeks (summer and winter) were very helpful. The area has lots of hiking and is within easy driving distance to Gruyere (town with castle), Caillier (Nestle) chocolate factory in Broc, Gstaad. A rail trip to Montreux is rewarded with a scenic view of the lake. Would definitely recommend this for both a relaxing or active vacation!

Excellent apartment in a beautiful village

  • 5 of 5
Excellent apartment. Spotless and very well furnished. Views from roof terrace or balconies are lovely. Swimming pool was perfect for the kids and quite often we were the only ones using it. Chateau D'Oex is lovely and has an excellent large supermarket as well as many things for children such as mini golf, bowling, playground. Patrick the apartment manager and Angelo the lettings manager were both extremely helpful and friendly. Overall a fantastic location to relax and explore the surrounding area, perfect for families.

Family holiday

  • 4 of 5
This apartment is really beautiful and exceeded our expectations. It is in excellent condition, very clean and well maintained. Very spacious and airy. The main balcony has an outstanding view but unfortunately it is unsafe for toddlers, unless very closely supervised. A cot was unavailable to us also (which we were aware of beforehand) but we managed fine and had a wonderful holiday. The owners of this apartment 8292 were very friendly to deal with everything was straightforward in regards to our booking and they were very helpful at all times and had satifactory answers to all our questions. Chateau d'oex is a beautiful town and the locals are very friendly and welcoming!

Great holiday!

  • 5 of 5
We found the apartment to be very comfortable and well maintained. Everything that we needed was provided. All the facilities were first class and well looked after.The views from the balcony and terrace were beautiful and even my husband who usually can't sit still for more than a few minutes would just sit and take in the scenery for hours
We found all the information leaflets and maps very useful and made use of the books that were available..
The village which is only a ten minute walk away had a good variety of shops and places to eat and the supermarket had everything we needed when we ate in the apartment.
We found the roads very quiet, which is a good thing when you're driving 'on the wrong side' and looking for turnings!
The chocolate factory (about thirty mins. drive ) was a big hit!
All in all a great holiday. Would love to go back sometime.
