Lovely space with a stunning view

  • 4 of 5

A great place to base yourself when exploring the Jungfrau region. Comfortable and well-supplied with all equipment required, it is only a matter of minutes from Lauterbrunnen train station - from where you can access trains, cable cars and hiking trails galore.

We've only been gone a day or so, and we're all missing our end-of-day cold beers on the balcony staring at the Staubbach Fall.

We have enjoyed our stay. The house is spacious, nicely decorated with beautiful views from all the rooms. Augustine was helpful with tips and hints of how we can best explore the surrounding area. All the amenities are in good condition. We enjoyed the view of the waterfall from the balcony.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Augustin is a great host and very responsive. He went the extra miles to let us know the different events in town so that we can enjoy them. We were lucky to arrived August 1st and was able to enjoy the fireworks!

The apartment was very comfortable for the six of us. It has everything we need and with a great view. WIFI signal was very good! Kitchen is fully equipped.

We had a wonderfully time and definitely book it again if we come back in the future. Thank you again ….

Owner's Response: Thank you Tsing Chen for your review appreciating your stay in Lauterbrunnen . Glad to know you enjoyed your stay in Lauterbrunnen. If you had come one day earlier you could have participated in the National Day celebrations in Interlaken which starts at 10 with folk lore singing, flag throwers, alpine pipe music , speech of the Gemeinde president in 4 languages, arrival of the flyers from the mountains holding 26 flags and landing on the Hoheweg grounds etc. At 14 hrs you can also see a procession with traditional dresses, William Tell characters, cows, bell ringers, and other items of history . During the Casino ground celebrations you get free Rugen Brau beer of the locality. But still you had time to enjoy the fireworks near the waterfall from the balcony which is indeed a wonderful spectacle. Wish you all the best for the future.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week staying in this apartment! The location is absolutely perfect for accessing any location in the vicinity, and the view of the Staubbach waterfall is ideal. We very much enjoyed sitting and eating out on the balcony. The apartment itself is comfortable. It had everything we could have asked for, and we were able to save money by using the kitchen to cook most of our meals. Augustine and Celine were kind and helpful both before and during our stay. It was raining when we arrived and when we left, and Augustine gave us a ride both to and from the train station. If you find yourself stuck inside on a rainy day, the apartment has a huge selection of movies for you to choose from. I'm sure we'll be coming back in the future!

Excellent apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

The Parani's apartment was extremely clean, in a great location with beautiful views and is well-furnished. Although we didn't have too much time to read, there was a wealth of books on travel plus many other topics. There were also a number of interesting CD's to watch.

A short walk takes you to the center of town for restaurants, shops, and Tourist Info center. A very short walk from there takes you to the train station, from which you can go anywhere in Switzerland as well as all of Europe.

One minor complaint - The Parani's could offer a little more help with the complicated recycling process in Lauterbrunnen.

All things considered, a wonderful place to stay. We would return in a minute!

Owner's Response: Thank you Joe for this nice review . It is true our apartment is situated near the waterfall and the view from the rooms and sitting room balcony is enchanting especially when it is lit up at night . The books and DVD s are our collection and we leave them for the guests to read and watch if they have time. Many of our guests travel from Lauterbrunnen to other parts of Switzerland and return on the same day. Some even go to France and Italy to have another culture to experience. It is true the re cycling is a little complicated for people from other countries and continents. Hence we try to explain when they arrive on the day of arrival, then there is note hanging in the apartment hanging which explains every process and then one day before we send a email to remind them if they have forgotten anything. We have observed that you have followed all the procedures and wish to thank you for that . Best wishes for your next trip .
