Overview

About the property

Luxury Ski Chalet for 10 people, ski in, less than a minute from the venicular

Chalet Candamo is a luxurious new 5-bedroom chalet conversion in the center of Mürren, a traffic-free village; refurbished in 2010 to offer spacious and luxurious accommodation for 10 people, stylishly decorated and furnished, and intelligently designed for practical convenience and comfort. The top floor of the chalet is given over to a splendid living space open to the eaves in the dining/living area where two sets of French windows open on to a balcony facing one of the most famous views in the Swiss Alps: the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau Mountains. The heavy oak dining table seats 10 with elbow room and 3 comfortable sofas are grouped around the glassed in wood burning fire.

Guests will notice many personal and homely touches in the chalet and those with an interest in skiing history will notice many decorative details recalling pre-War Mürren's historic role as one of the cradles of competitive Alpine skiing: old skis on the wall, old photographs, rooms named after old ski runs.

Chalet Layout:

The ground floor has the main entrance door which leads into a front hall with coat hooks and shoe racks. There are two large bedrooms, one bath/shower room, laundry room, and a boot room with an outside door opening almost onto the piste.

The first floor comprises two super king size rooms with balcony, one double bedroom, one bath/shower room, one shower room/WC and one WC.

The top floor, the main living area, is open to the eaves, a south facing mainly glass aspect with a large balcony. It also has a shower room/WC, a semi open plan kitchen and a television room with a sofa bed which could double as a cooks bedroom if needed.

Brilliant, lovely and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in your beautiful home, thank you. Your staff were great, very helpful and the organisation was seemless. Chalet Candamo is the most comfortable and relaxing rental we have ever stayed in, it really is a home from home. The attention to detail and the whole layout of the chalet is great. We loved all the skiing history and the names on the bedroom doors, with the most amazing stories associated with the names, all based in Murren.

Murren, is an exquisit village, completely unspoilt . A great combination. We would all love to revisit this jewel.

Position - unbeatable, comfort - superb,

  • 5 of 5

A lovely holiday in a beautiful home. The chalet is amazingly luxurious; spacious sitting room with very comfortable seating, well stocked kitchen with a great view of the piste and a piste board so you can read what's open without even getting dressed. Very comfortable beds, lovely linen and unbeatable pillows! A really good find, will definitely come again. The position is unbeatable, right on the piste and only a few steps to the nearest lift. In the centre of the village, with a lovely garden and goat shed, amazing uninterrupted views in all directions. Very clean and well maintained. Highly recommend.

Magical Murren

  • 5 of 5

Our group stayed for a week last Summer and this is the best place you can stay in Murren. Great central location. Everything about the chalet is first class. The views are unreal. The local contacts are wonderful with a wealth of knowledge and recommendations. If your coming to Switzerland to be outdoors and hike, Murren is a wonderful base. A multitude of great hikes right outside your door to beautiful areas away from the crowds. The video we took along the via ferrata leaves people speechless. We all left part of our heart in Murren.

The chalet was wonderful! You will have hard time finding a nicer place anywhere on the mountain. Management was very helpful and accommodating. Such a pretty area and so many available activities.

better than you can imagine!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to stay in Murren! The chalet is indeed luxurious but still comfortable and homey. A full kitchen with all the gadgets that you need. Tons of well furnished bedrooms and bathrooms.

The local lady in charge of the place is really lovely and helpful. The town is amazing to stay in the summer- a different hike every day and paragliding to boot. Highly recommend both the chalet and Murren!

(We stayed the first night at the base of the hill in Lauterbrunnen. Next time I would skip that town- stay in Interlakken instead if you don't think you will make it to Murren in time.)

Chalet Candamo is a luxurious new 5-bedroom chalet conversion in the center of Mürren, a traffic-free village at the heart of the Bernese Oberland offering spectacular views, reliable snow and uncrowded pistes for all age groups and abilities.

Perfectly placed for getting to and from the slopes, beside the village nursery slope and 10 meters from the nearest lift, the chalet is the ideal base for unforgettable ski holidays. It works equally well for an active summer holiday spent exploring the mountains on foot, making excursions and relaxing in surroundings of incomparable beauty. Although primarily designed as a family holiday home, Chalet Candamo is available for rent winter and summer on a self catering basis.

Chalet Candamo's location could not be better, plumb in the center of Mürren with the nursery slope and Allmendhubel funicular on one side; supermarket, bank and ski hire shop on the other.

There are five well-proportioned double bedrooms, plus a TV/computer room which can serve as the cook's bedroom if required; two bathrooms, two shower rooms, and separate WC.

Guests will notice many personal and homely touches in the chalet and those with an interest in skiing history will notice many decorative detail recalling pre-War Mürren's historic role as one of the cradles of competitive Alpine skiing: old skis on the wall, old photographs, rooms named after old ski runs etc.

The chalet has two 32' LCD TV's with satellite reception, WiFi, a Zeppelin ipod docking music system, a laundry/drying room and a boot room with drying rack and boot heater.
