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

Brilliant Christmas 2017
Exactly as advertised. Spotless, simple and elegant. Well equipped, excellent heating, spacious, great location with bonus of a garage. View to die for.
Beds very comfortable and a super kitchen. Would love to return summer or winter. Didn’t meet Diane but emails were informative and friendly. Absolutely no complaints.
If we had to say anything we might suggest a second key as the younger ones don,t always want the same as us. In the kitchen, because we like to cook, we could have used one more medium pan but these are mere details.
Other bonus was the proximity to the campsite and it’s shop and bar plus it’s lovely slope for sledging - with the helpfully provided sledges.
Don’t hesitate to sign up for this one because you won’t get better value.
Far and away the best!
We stayed as a family to celebrate my father's 80th birthday. The apartment is perfectly appointed with no detail missed. It was so clean, that it felt like a new house.
Diane went out of our way to ensure that dad had a special birthday, by organising his cake from the local bakery and Prosecco in readiness for our arrival.
The setting is perfect for beautiful views of the valley.
A truly beautiful apartment, and a fantastic host.
Heavenly view in deluxe accommodations!
The chalet apartment far exceeded our expectations . It was more spacious than pictures can depict and well-appointed, even down to our favorite item...a raclette maker! When we had guests and six persons were there, it did not feel crowded and all had privacy. Diane was very accommodating for our needs with linens, etc. Lauterbrunnen has to be one of the most beautiful villages on earth and we hope to return!
Wow what an apartment!
Rarely have we been in an apartment which is so well equipped. Everything you needed for a self catering holiday was provided even down to the toilet paper!! We have self catered for many many years and there is always something that isn't there, but Chalet Black had thought of everything. The apartment was also spotlessy clean with good quality appliances, equipment and furnishings. Communication with the owner was very smooth and pleasant. Finally the view. This apartment has the most beautiful uninterrupted view of the mountains which you can enjoy from the generous balcony. It is a short walk along the river to Lauterbrunnen and there are countless attractions to visit from the apartment. I would certainly recommend this property without hesitation.
The best view in Lauterbrunnen!
This apartment is just wonderful. The rooms are all spacious. Kitchen is very well appointed. Lots of nice additions, such as a wonderful book collection, dvd's etc. And the views - simply the best view in all of Lauterbrunnen. There are numerous other apartments in chalets in this community, but none have the front row seat of the alps, that this apartment has! The view is simply stunning. The apartment is within walking distance of the town of Lauterbrunnen, which is great, so you don't have to drive and fuss with parking. Such a great base to see the whole region. Most importantly, Diane Black is a wonderful host who took such great care of us. Highly recommend this apartment for anyone considering staying in the area.
Amazing Stay at Chalet Black
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.
Thank you for your lovely review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at my apartment.
