This home was a great choice for our family. We were able to enjoy great hiking in the surrounding Alpstein and even took a couple of day trips to central Switzerland. The kitchen had a complete inventory of cookware and accessories with lots of cabinet space which made cooking a breeze. The nearby Sparr had a quality meat selection as well as fruits and vegetables. It was an easy walk from the house. Remember to carry your own reusable bag for groceries. Although you can always obtain one at the store if you forget. An automobile is advisable although there are two bus stations, both about 5 to 10 minutes by foot. The house has a nice clothes washer and dryer so you can pack less clothes and save room in your luggage for souvenirs. (Just a suggestion) There is a good wifi signal available but no tv, but who travels to Switzerland to watch television anyway. The homeowners were very friendly and responsive to requests. For some reason my GPS could not find the address listed so if you have the same problem just go the last house on the right on Farbstrasse. It's on a slight hill. There is a smoker available for use and wood is provided. We found it more expedient to pan fry most of our meats and to use the oven as well, although we did enjoy smoking a few sausages one evening. In summary I would definitely recommend this property. I look forward to returning and will book here again.
