Beautiful location. Wonderful apartment.

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is exactly as described but even so we were not prepared for how good it is. It is a lovely apartment, beautifully decorated with great furnishings. The property is well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The provided sledge was especially appreciated by our daughters. Everything is spotless and perfectly maintained. The service provided by the owner and the Chalet service in Wengen was faultless with helpful and polite service. The location is excellent for skiing. From the apartment to the gondola in 2 minutes (on skis) which whisks you to the top of the mountain in 5 minutes. The beauty of the area is unbelievable and on a sunny day the views are breathtaking.

I would not hesitate to recommend this fabulous apartment.

Owner's Response: We aim to provide guests with a quality stay in the apartment and to that end we have furnished it to a high standard with attractive furnishings and some special touches. The location in the village is super, whether guests are skiing to the cable car and nursery area, or exploring the many walks and hikes in the summer, or wanting to take a dip in the swimming pool next door - they are all within easy reach.

We knew Wengen well (having curled there for 25 years) but were still a little apprehensive when we decided to self-cater for the first time in 2012. Our fears were completely unfounded as Chalet Waldbort was everything it was descibed to be - and more.
It was in immaculate condition and had absolutely everything anyone could need - from a Nespresso machine to a sledge! The appartment has lots of character and is so homely - we have already booked our third visit...
All our communication with Wendy has been straighforward and she has been most helpful.
I would thoroughly recommend this accomodation - and Wengen itself - to anyone who enjoys spectacular scenery with lots of exploring possible whatever the time of year - and then a perfect appartment to come home to at the end of a busy day.

Charming Wengen Apartment

  • 5 of 5
Lovely characterful and well equipped apartment - everything we could wish for. Located close to slopes and short walk to the village. Wengen friendly and charming. Murren, Piz Gloria and the Schilthon run totally worth a day - stunning!
Would definitely stay again

Stunning Apartment

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was absolutely perfect - just as described and shown in the ad and more. The high quality and tasteful furnishings made the apartment welcoming and made you feel as if you were in someone's home which we were. The extra touches were much appreciated - the Nespresso machine, the L'Occitane bathroom supplies were very much enjoyed and the umbrella and hiking sticks were very useful.

We arrived to bad weather and one of us injured so we really enjoyed being in such nice surroundings, with the ability to cook in a well equipped kitchen and watching the numerous DVDs there. Once the weather cleared we were able to do some fantastic walks and the location of the apartment close to the train station and the tracks made it easy to get out and about.

We really appreciated the easy communication we had with Wendy and Dorothy (the local agent) and found all of the information given along the way helpful. The folder in the apartment with recommendations and instructions on how to use the appliances etc made life easy. Wendy you have a fantastic apartment that we were lucky to share. We would recommend it to anyone heading for the Swiss Alps. We would rush back here in a flash if it wasn't so far away (we're from New Zealand!)

Thanks again - Chris and Simon

Wengen holiday 2012

  • 5 of 5
Once again we had a most enjoyable holiday in Wengen and Chalet Walbort. The chalet was as usual extremely well presented with absolutely everything we could have wanted to make our stay a very pleasurable experience. Wengen and the surrounding area was superb, maybe not the usual exceptionally good weather we have become accustomed to, but never the less we thoroughly enjoyed the hiking and scenery. Thoroughly recommended.

The Jungfrau Region, lying south of Interlaken and the lakes of Thunersee and Brienzersee is one of the most spectacular and dramatic areas of mountain scenery in Switzerland. At its heart lies the Lauterbrunnen valley which is dominated by the mountain giants of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. Wengen is perched above the valley, at an altitude of 1274m on a south west facing plateau and offers breathtaking views of mountain scenery of the grandest scale. It is a car free village of old world charm, accessed from Lauterbrunnen by train (approx 17mins). In winter the area offers extensive skiing accessed by cable car or train with skiing back to Wengen or Grindelwald. Once the snow melts, the area provides ideal hiking and walking country for all abilities. The chalet is located in a quiet position 5 mins from the centre and is conveniently situated adjacent the open air swimming pool. It is within easy walking distance of the shops, train station and other village amenities.

Ski: Wengen is ideally placed to provide easy access to the Jungfrau ski region which provides skiing and snowboarding for all levels and consists of 3 main areas - (1) Kleine Scheidegg - Mannlichen which is accessed by either cable car or train from Wengen with a number of black, red and blue runs back to the village as well long runs down to Grindelwald; (2) Grindelwald - First area, located above Grindelwald providing long blue and red runs; and (3) Murren - Schilthorn which provides some spectacular scenic skiing. Beginners are well served by the nursery slopes in Wengen and experts and thrill seekers can try out the black runs from the Lauberhorn down to Wengen following the course of the famous world cup downhill and slalom races.
