Bedrooms 3
Space 1,076 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 7

Beautiful 3 bedroom, family friendly apartment in the heart of the Lauterbrunnen Valley. A 10 minute walk from the village centre, Chalet Black comfortably sleeps 7 adults and provides the perfect base for skiing in Winter and hiking in Summer.

The apartment is in the last chalet of the village so has uninterrupted views down the valley from the generous balcony. In Winter, the free bus service runs from the end of the road and gives easy access to either Stechelberg (for the Mürren/Schilthorn ski region) and Lauterbrunnen (for the Kleine Scheidegg/Jungfrau ski region). There is also a cross-country skiing (Langlauf) track that running along the Luterbach river at the side of the apartment.

In Summer, the hiking possibilities are endless along well marked 'Wanderwege' or if that all sounds too strenuous, feel free to while away long lazy afternoons on the sunny balcony.

The apartment has been furnished to a very high standard with quality Swiss beds, stainless steel appliances, Nespresso machine, flat screen TV (with cable), DVD/VCR player, Apple TV and iPod docks. Included in the rental price is unlimited wireless broadband internet and use of the secure garage.

About Diane Black

I grew up in England but have spent most of my adult life in Australia.

My family and I moved to Switzerland in 2009 for work and quickly fell in love with the Lauterbrunnen Valley following our first trip to the Schilthorn. Soon after, we were very fortunate to find this beautiful apartment.

Whether in summer or winter, as soon as I walk through the front door I feel relaxed. I hope you will love this area and our apartment as much as I do.

Diane Black purchased this apartment in 2011

Amazing Stay at Chalet Black

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't fully do this lovely place justice! It is truly a beautiful and peaceful place. First, the chalet is very well equipped and is in GREAT condition! For example, Diane even has 3 coffee makers to suit everyone's taste. Even though there were only 2 of us, there is plenty of room for 6+. But the best part is the location and the view! To wake up every morning and look into the valley and the snow-covered peaks of the alps is glorious. Outside of your balcony are sheep and cows wearing cowbells. The chalet is within walking distance of the train station (and shopping and restaurants) in Lauterbrunnen which can take you to the great places to visit... Schilthorn, Jungfraujoch, Grindlewald, etc. In the front of the chalet is a terrific walk into the valley to view dozens of waterfalls. Very convenient also is the Jungfrau Camping area which has a very good restaurant which is very reasonably priced. And if you need last minute grocery items, there's a small grocery store there, too. All in all, this is a wonderful rental... great beauty, good value and a beautiful, relaxing stay.

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights in November at the Chalet Black. Staying here in Lauterbrunnen was definitely the highlight of our trip. The place was like new very clean, all the conveniences of home. The views of the valley and the mountains were amazing. We will always remember our stay there. Thank you so much!

Perfect location and immaculate!!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at Chalet Black couldn't have been better. We wanted to stay in a spot that was convenient to hiking the Jungfrau region. This was it!! Everyday we took trains, gondolas, cable cars, and/or funiculars to various levels above us in the Alps, and went on breathtaking hikes in the areas all around us. Every evening we came back to the welcoming Chalet Black and sat on the balcony sipping wine and gazing up the valley to the Alps. The kitchen was very well-equipped and we even used the provided fondue pot to make our own Swiss cheese fondue one night outside. We couldn't have had a better chalet or location!!!!!

Best place in Switzerland

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth time staying at the condo in Lauterbrunnen and we always love the place. Just to wake up and look out the window at the beautiful view of the valley and the mountains, is a total treat. We love having a place to fix breakfast and eat in our pajamas and feel at home. The new grill is great to be able to have brats and burgers, or throw a steak on in the summer. I have to mention that the washer and dryer are my favorite things. You don't have to pack tons of clothing with the option to toss a batch in and have fresh things in just a few minutes. We never miss the potato salad and brats on Sunday at the end of the valley by the gondola. The condo is always clean and neat and feels at home. PS The best food is at the Outlander Hotel, we already miss it.

Highly recommend this little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful apartment in a beautiful setting. Two full baths were extremely helpful for my family of six (five women). The chalet was clean, almost new-looking and very comfortable. The bedrooms, kitchen, dining area, living room, deck and parking were very nice, and the views were absolutely fantastic. The chalet had everything we needed -- except a good old American coffee maker -- but we enjoyed the Nespresso! Chalet Black was a great choice for us, as it is walking distance from Lauterbrunnen and the Schilthorn gondola for peaceful hikes (or the bus stop less than 50 yards from the door), with a restaurant and great little grocery store just a stone's throw from the front door. Lauterbrunnen is a beautiful little town in the valley above Interlaken with some of the best scenery in the world, in our opinion. It was a great choice for us after considering apartments in Murren and Wengen, as it was more convenient to drive and park there rather than having taking a train or lift to the mountain towns. The waterfalls (70+) were captivating. Restaurants in town were very good (recommend the Oberland and Staubbach). Schilthorn is a can't-miss day trip to the 007 mountain-top 360-degree restaurant (ask about the discount when purchasing gondola tickets) and hike from Murren to Gimmelwald. We thoroughly enjoyed the few days we spent there and hope to return. We'll definitely check with Diane for Chalet Black when we do. She is a most wonderful and accommodating host!

The location was very good and the facility was well equipped. My disappointment was in that the owner had great expectations of cleanliness. She said 2 of her white towels were discolored. We did multiple washes as we were not advised of a set number of washes. Also, she implied the drier filter was dirty. This couldn't be true as we purposely wiped it off after each use. UNLESS, I was suppose to take it off and clean in the underneath of which I wasn't advised. She said we had scrubbed 2 of her mugs and they were scared. That would be impossible as all we had was a red soft brush, and throw away cloth to use. We did buy 2 sponges to use to keep the kitchen spotless. We swept, took all the linens off the bed and bathroom. We didn't seem to satisfy her desires even though we really worked at doing anything requested. Lastly, she said we left 2 holes in the wall of which I know nothing of. I think her expectations were VERY high, please be advised as to staying there to be very very cautious or she will keep your deposit like ours. Put quite a damper on our time there. The area to stay is really really nice. Sorry

Owner's Response: On booking a refundable deposit is requested, which is security against damage to the apartment, above and beyond normal wear and tear. Unfortunately, this guest lost her deposit due to excessive damage, necessitating replastering of a wall and purchase of several new towels and kitchen items. She is well aware that no money was withheld for leaving the apartment dirty or not cleaning the dryer filter. Cleaning is included in the rental cost.
