Wald is definitely off the beaten track, and that's what we were seeking for a respite from visiting European big cities. This downstairs apartment in a beautiful home in Wald is privately accessible, roomy and includes everything a traveler needs- nice kitchen, bathroom and two rooms for sleeping - one with large eating table and kitchen area. Clean and attractive with amazing views of the countryside and the sound of Swiss cowbells and glorious churchbells nearby. It is not far from the Wald train station but it's probably better for someone with a car than on foot as we were- depending on your willingness to trek. If you come for hiking or skiing it would be a very nice mid-point as the distance to Zurich is about 30-40 minutes by train - and then a 10 minute walk to location. There is an excellent spa/hotel nearby which we took full advantage of on a rainy day. The Swiss are known for their self contained tendencies but our host was gracious and welcoming and even came to get us when we arrived. For a glimpse of the real life experience of a modern yet ancient Swiss village Wald is a great choice!
