SELF CATERING HOLIDAY APARTMENT IN THE SWISS ALPS

Lauterbrunnen Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Luxury south-facing apartment with 3 bedrooms, 1 double, 2 twins, sleeps 6

In the heart of the Swiss Alps, this six-year old first floor apartment has a south facing balcony with uninterrupted views of waterfalls and snow capped mountain peaks. Within easy reach of the village of Lauterbrunnen for access to local shops, restaurants and the local train/cable car services to the major town of Interlaken and the Alpine villages of Wengen, Grindlewald and Murren, from which you can access the many hundreds of kilometres of walking trails and ski runs. The apartment is ideally suited for summer and winter holidays. It has new furniture and underfloor heating throughout. The kitchen is well equipped with granite worktops, ceramic hob, oven, microwave and dishwasher. There is also a washing machine and tumble dryer in the bathroom.

The open plan living area has ample seating and dining places for 6 people, and guests can enjoy DVD's and 400+ international television and radio channels on the plasma screen TV. There is also an i-pod docking station and wireless internet throughout

Summer in the Berner Oberland: The Lauterbrunnen Valley is known as the valley of waterfalls and is a mecca for all outdoor and extreme sports. The short walk (1km) to Lauterbrunnen Station is the starting point to give you access to mountain railways and cable cars and the mountain villages they serve. From these villages you have an almost limitless choice of walking and cycling trails of varying difficulties. From the apartment you can walk along the river path, past the Trummelbach Falls to Stechelberg. From here you can catch the cable car up to Schilthorn/Piz Gloria, made famous in the James Bond film 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' and its revolving restaurant. Staying in the village gives you access to shops and excellent restaurants, tennis, swimming and crazy golf. The Air Glacier Helicopters run pleasure flights around the region.

Winter in the Berner Oberland: The ski and toboggan slopes of Wengen and Murren are less than 20 minutes from the apartment. The post bus stops outside the apartment and takes skiers and non-skiers directly to Lauterbrunnen station, and then trains and cable cars take you up to either Wengen or Murren. The ski season runs from December to April. There are 210 km of prepared pistes (First, Kleine Scheidegg, Mannlichen and Murren-Schilthorn) accessible from Lauterbrunnen and these cover all abilities from beginner to advanced, as well as opportunities for off piste skiing with local guides. The cost of the lift pass includes access to all lifts, trains, cable cars and buses. Equipment is available to hire from local shops in the village.

Superb apartment

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful apartment with lovely valley/mountain views. It has a fully fitted kitchen, 3 bedrooms, a washing machine/tumble dryer in the bathroom and is a short (steep in places) walk to the town and the train station. Everything is clean and in good condition. You are provided with lots of towels, washing up liquid, some dish washer tabs, games e.g. cluedo (not in English) and the correct bin bags - the TV even has access to a few British channels! The only things you will need are a Swiss power adapter (as their sockets are different to German ones) and washing powder/fabric conditioner.

The apartment provides super access for the Jungfrau train network via Lauterbrunnen station and, although tickets are expensive, I would highly recommend getting them. We visited Jungfraujoch and, even though the weather had been foggy/drizzly for two days meaning the mountains were obscurred from the trains, when we got to Jungfraujoch summit it was hot sunshine and the views were fabulous - my husband even got burnt whilst we played in the snow! Check the Jungfraujoch webcam before setting off on your journey!

The apartment is near a heli port but this does not disturb the tranquility of the location - they even airlift cows using the helicopters - quite an usual site for us Brits! Lots of skydivers/paragliders and waterfalls visible from the balcony.

The 1st August is Swiss National Day and so we were able to enjoy free mini golf at the nearby sports centre and then we were treated to some amazing fireworks that night (our last night in the apartment), literally at the rear of the apartment - at the Staubbach falls.

The local manager visited twice and collected the cleaning and linen fee on her last visit. She was very friendly.

I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to visit this beautiful mountainous region.

Beautiful Apartment in Lauterbrunnen

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was excellent. It is beautifully furnished with everything you need. The washing machine and tumble dryer were a real bonus, especially when holidaying with a young family! The apartment is very spacious and was extremely clean. Kath was very friendly and also helpful with local information.

We have been travelling to this area for over 10 years and this is the best apartment we have stayed in and in the best location - the views were spectacular. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property for rental.

Thank you!!

Fantastic Apartment/Chalet in Lauterbrunnen

  • 5 of 5
We were lucky enough to spend Christmas here and had a fantastic time.

The apartment/chalet is modern and very spacious. The bedrooms were all comfortable. Having access to a washing machine was also a bonus! The fully equipped kitchen meant that we could prepare a huge Christmas feast. The internet connection was handy as well as the DVD's and TV channels (for when it was too chilly outside). The views from the bedrooms and living areas were stunning.

When we arrived there was information on what to do in the area and recommendations for a meal in town (we had an amazing fondue and rotti feast!).

Lauterbrunnen is the perfect base to visit Schilthorn and Jungfrau as well as the many other little towns in the area. We also (quite easily) did day trips to Bern and Lucerne. There are great local shops/facilities in Lauterbrunnen itself with a supermarket and shops to hire a sledge/toboggan. The staff at the visitors centre were very helpful.

I have no hesitations in recommending this property and would happily go back to stay again!

Great

  • 5 of 5
Great view, comfy beds,spacious and well maintained. Easy walk to restaurants, station, hiking trails etc. We had some downpours so found the cafe in the nearby campsite Jungfrau a godsend, the menu is limited but the standard was high and its just a 3 minute sprint away.

Great accommodation and fantastic snow

  • 5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our stay in Lauterbrunnen. The apartment is as described and more, modern, roomy, comfortable and most important in winter - warm, the underfloor heating was great. We are a family with grown up children and partners, all enjoyed the apartment. Sean provided good information and Kathryn who is the local contact was very helpful.
No need to use the car if you are ski-ing, the ski-bus to both Lauterbrunnen and Murren stops a short walk away.The ski area offers plenty of variety and the scenery is spectacular. We enjoyed excellent snow conditions and particularly enjoyed ski-ing the Lauberhorn Downhill course - although not in the 2min 30secs done by the racers! Murren is well worth a day and here again has some great runs.
We last visited the area some 28 years ago and won't wait so long to return again. We recommend this apartment and thank Sean for making it available.

Lauterbrunnen is a small alpine village in the famous Jungfrau region in Switzerland. It is the ideal base for both summer and winter holidays for hiking, skiing, sledging or mountain biking, or you can take gentle walks through the breathtaking mountain scenery. The valley has many waterfalls, including the 300 m high Staubbach Falls at the edge of the village and the Trummelbach Falls, which thunder through mountain caverns.

The village itself has several shops and restaurants, as well as a post office and two banks. There is also a small convenience store (open all week) a few minutes walk from the apartment.

Lauterbrunnen is the starting point for the cable cars and mountain railways which climb through beautiful scenery to the car free resorts of Wengen and Murren (both less than 20 minutes from the apartment) and onto the Jungfraujoch, which at 3454 m is Europe's highest railway station. The Schiltorn/Piz Gloria, made famous by James Bond is at the end of this valley

Other Activities: White water rafting, helicopter rides, heli-skiing.

Ski: The ski and toboggan slopes of Wengen and Murren are less than 20 minutes from the apartment. The post bus stops outside the apartment and takes skiers and non-skiers directly to Lauterbrunnen station, and then trains and cable cars take you up to either Wengen or Murren. The ski season runs from December to April. There are 210km of prepared pistes (First, Kleine Scheidegg, Mannlichen and Murren-Schilthorn) accessible from Lauterbrunnen and these cover all abilities from beginner to advanced, as well as opportunities for off piste skiing with local guides. The cost of the lift pass includes access to all lifts, trains, cable cars and buses. Equipment is available to hire from local shops in the village and this can be exchanged/upgraded through the network of local Intersport shops and outlets. The world famous Lauberhorn ski race takes place in Wengen, normally in the 2nd week of January.
