About Christine + Paul
We are living in the northern part of Switzerland and we spent our winter holidays in the last years in Grindelwald. We love very much skiing and sledding. Also hiking in summer is marvelous. When we got the opportunity to buy this wonderful apartment 'Schreckhorn' in the Chalet JASMINE we didn't hesitate. Our neighbour, Rita, was very much excited of the studio 'Pilatus' and its huge terrace that she bought the studio immediately as well. The studio is just below the apartment. We are the owners since July 2013
Christine + Paul purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Christine + Paul chose Grindelwald
Very wide and sunny balcony/terrace overlooking the ski area 'Kleine Scheidegg & Männlichen' and an incredible view to the Eiger North Face. The apartment and the studio are very bright (window front) and spacious.
What makes this Apartment unique
Very good location. Close to the ski bus stop (100 m) to all skiing and hiking areas: Firstbahn, Männlichenbahn or Grund railway station for the train to Kleine Scheidegg (Top of Europe). 5-7 minutes walk to the railway station or the center of Grindelwald for shopping, dining or relaxing in one of the beautiful Restaurants and Bars.

Quiet studio away from the tourist crowds
Studio Pilatus is a wonderful place to base yourself for sightseeing around Grindelwald. It is a short walk from the train/bus station. The studio is secure, quiet, bright and is nestled amongst the mountains. The kitchen is spacious and has everything that you could need for cooking if you are self catering. A laundry is available for use. A very comfortable space for 3 people.
Great apartment, fantastic views
The apartment was perfect for our needs. It was lovely to have a fully equiped kitchen as we ate in most nights. The coffee machine was a real bonus. There was ample space in the apartment for two people and the bed was particularly comfortable. We were extremely lucky to have fantastic weather for most of our holiday which enabled us to take most of our breakfasts and evening meals on the terrace enjoying the outstanding views. We felt that the terrace stretching round two sides of the apartment was a real strength but could maybe have done with a little more 'tender loving care'. The situation of the apartment was perfect as we could walk to the railway station in five minutes and on to the First cable car station, or down the hill to Grund to get the train to Kleine Scheidegg or cable cars to Mannlichen.
Christine was extremely helpful and replied promptly to any questions to ensure a most enjoyable holiday. We will be recommending the apartment to friends.
Thank you for the really lovely feedback. The studio Pilatus will be renewed soon (2017/2018) and we also invest into the huge terrace. Then it will look nicer.
Great view and plenty of space for two.
Easy access, great location. Very open and bright! We had a lot of rain, so it was nice to have a comfortable place to wait it out. Kitchen is a tad small, but we made it work. Some extras (umbrellas, trekking poles, games) were a nice touch. Everything was very well laid out and explained in the guest information book. We would return.
Lovely studio in the perfect location
We really enjoyed our stay at Studio Pilatus. The apartment is spacious and clean and very quiet, with lovely views of the mountains. Just a short walk into town (about 5 minutes to the main high street/train station). Would highly recommend.
Thank you for the review. - The studio Pilatus will be completely renovated at the end of the year.
The property is great with wonderful views and has everything for a holiday home.
The property was just what we would have wanted.
It is very close to the railway station and the centre of town .
It has all the facilties required for a waling holiday and we could not have asked for more.
The owners were very easy to deal with and helped us with any enquiries.
Dear guests, thank you for the feedback. We know that your start in Grindelwald wasn't perfect and we hope that we could compensate you with our voucher.
We wish you all the best! Kind regards, Christine
Excellent Property and Location
We had a wonderful 10 days in Studio Pilatus. It is a great apartment, very well presented and equipped. The location is perfect only a short walk into the centre or down to the other station and lifts.
We had perfect weather for our first visit to Grindelwald and will return to this apartment
Thank you very much for your nice feedback. We hope to welcome you once again. Rita
