Luxury Ski Chalet for 10 people, ski in, less than a minute from the funicular
Chalet Candamo is a luxurious new 5-bedroom chalet conversion in the centre 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.
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.

About Edwina Palmer
I have a busy family life with two nearly grown up children. I am a keen skier, horse rider and I generally lead a very active life. My husband fell in love with Murren when he was a boy, as did I when we married in 1984. Chalet 'Candamo', my maiden name, is our second home which we enjoy both in Winter and Summer.
Edwina Palmer purchased this Chalet in 2010
Why Edwina Palmer chose Mürren
Candamo is perfectly located in the middle of the village, therefore no walking in ski boots with heavy skis and the supermarket is just 50 yards down the hill. The chalet is ideally located both for winter use and capitalises from the amazing views and beautiful walks during the summer.
What makes this Chalet unique
It has a lovely garden, which is rare for Murren, with comfortable garden table The open plan kitchen, sitting room, and dining area situated at the top of the property maximises the views and benefits from the glorious fireplace and French windows onto a protected balcony with views across to the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau

Brilliant, lovely and relaxing
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.
Perfect, highly recommend!

Position - unbeatable, comfort - superb,
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.
