Wonderful stay out in countryside but near a Medieval city

We are a 60yo couple that stayed here for a week in early October,2010. The charming Uschi met us at the train, took us grocery shopping for essentials and then on to the apartment. It is in the bottom floor of their house, located 2-3 miles from the city center of Biel among the cows and wonderful forest. Walk down to the next door farm and buy your eggs,veggies and rabbit.There is dependable bus service to Biel a few blocks from the house, so this location will not cramp your outings.
The apartment was spotless and well maintained- consisting of a large living room and dining table, a smallish kitchen and eating area and a bedroom.The bathroom was large and the shower had great pressure and endless hot water. The rooms all share the entrance hallway with Uschi and Richard who reside above but no awkward moments occurred and they were most respectful of our privacy. Every amenity described in the VRBO ad existed and the owners most attentive and helpful. The only negative for us were the twin beds--we prefer a queen/king mattress arrangement.
I recommend this apartment to all, it is fairly priced and Switzerland is one beautiful country.
