Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms sleeping up to five people. Ideal for Summer and Winter Activities.

LOCATION

The apartment is located approx. 10 minutes on foot or 2 minutes via bus from the main station in Lauterbrunnen. From here all of the areas of the Jungfrau can be accessed via gondola or cog railway, or via the train to Interlaken if venturing further afield. All of the village amenities (restaurants, shops, Coop, Bank, Post Office and Tourist Office) are all within easy walking distance.

THE APARTMENT

The apartment has two good sized bedrooms and sleeps up to five people.

In the master bedroom there is a queen size double bed and in the second bedroom there are two single beds, one of which converts into a double bed if an extra sleeping space is required.

In the living area there is ample room to sit and relax (around the fireplace in winter) either on the sofa or around a dinner table (which can be folded away when not in use to provide extra space). All of the expected home comforts are available for use by guests including a Flat screen 'Smart' 3D TV with international channels, Wi Fi, DVD and CD players and an Apple TV box.

The kitchen is fully stocked with cutlery and crockery, as well as cooking utensils, pots and pans. There is a microwave, electric hob, dishwasher, refrigerator, toaster and kettle.

There is a large balcony with unobstructed views down the Lauterbrunnen valley, including the local church and the Staubbach waterfall.

There is one bathroom in the apartment, with bath, shower, toilet and wash basin.

Downstairs in the basement, the private utility room has a washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer, as well as a large washing basin. Additionally in the basement there is a communal games room, sauna and heated storage room (with private lockable ski store) for storing skis and other equipment.

If guests do have a car, there is a designated covered parking space.

Travel cots and high chairs are available at a small additional cost if required.

LAUTERBRUNNEN AND THE JUNGFRAU

There are over 500 kilometres of footpaths, 160 km of mountain bike trails, cable cars and railways, adventure sports, climbing and mountaineering areas, waterfalls and alpine lakes - all accompanied by the breathtaking panoramic views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.

In Lauterbrunnen specifically and within walking distance of the apartment, are outdoor tennis courts (which convert into an Ice rink in Winter), an outdoor Swimming pool and a play park for Children as well as both the Staubbach and Trummelbach Waterfalls.

A good place to get a feel for the area and an idea of the things on offer is on the following web site:

WINTER

The 214 kilometres of piste in the Jungfrau region are among the most picturesque in the world, catering for all level of skier and boarder, with long blue runs for beginners to the Lauberhorn world cup run and off piste areas for the more adventurous.

It is not possible to ski in Lauterbrunnen itself, although weather permitting it is possible to ski down to Lauterbrunnen from the Murren Schilthorn side.

From the apartment it is a couple of minutes bus ride to both the Gondola and main train station providing access to the Murren Schilthorn and Wengen-Kleine Scheidegg ski areas. Grindelwald is further afield and can be accessed via train, either directly from Lauterbrunnen or with a combined ski and train run from the Wengen side of the mountain.

About James Graham

We are Michelle, James, Millie and Holly.

We currently reside in the UK but having previously lived, worked and played in Switzerland have an affinity with the country and the mountains.

We love to spend as much of our time as possible in our apartment, skiing in the Winter and enjoying the mountains and outdoor activities throughout the rest of the year.

Inspiring, Charming and Amazing-The Best of Switzerland!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was a wonderful base for outdoor activities in the area. Comfortable and well maintained with an incredible waterfall view from the balcony! After a very full day of outdoor fun, the balcony is the perfect place to relax with a warm cup of tea or soup. The valley, mountain and waterfall views are straight out of a fairy tale! There are many hiking trails and the Lauterbrunnen area is perfect for those of us escaping "the big city".

The owner, James, was very responsive and always on top of things.

We hope to return someday and would absolutely recommend the apartment!

Dramatic location overlooking the Staubach Falls and the Jungfrau mountains!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location to base your Switzerland vacation. Easy access to the stunning mountains, & busy urban destinations. James was always very responsive to our needs and made excellent recommendations. The unit was comfortable for our party of 4. The living room had a very comfortable sectional, and the outside space was outfitted with plenty of comfortable seating for our party. The kitchen was fully stocked with the essential cooking wares. The master bedroom had ample storage. We would definitely recommend this condo!

Wonderful stay - Modern, clean, cheerful

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay - the balcony was our favorite place with magnificent views of the waterfall. But actually the whole apartment felt very spacious and well-stocked. It was well situated, about a 10 minute walk uphill to the train station (we had a double stroller so couldn't take the short cut). Modern, clean, cheerful decor, welcoming feel. I would advise any Americans to read the welcome pack carefully - in particular the 'trash' section as Swiss take their recycling very seriously as we discovered too far along in our stay! (Having to undo trash bags and pull everything out afterwards is not so easy).

Perfect spot to explore the area

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this apartment which I felt was in a perfect location to enjoy everything the area has to offer. We were able to walk to town, the lifts to start our hikes as well as the falls. We also rented a car so were able to make a few trips to other towns and the beautiful lakes nearby. The train station is within walking distance from the apartment which is also a good option if no car.

The area views, both in the valley, the mountains and the lakes are just spectacular -- we've traveled quite a bit and haven't experienced such beauty. The apartment itself also has wonderful views of the valley and town -- we especially enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching and listening to the falls every night. The apartment was spacious and worked out perfectly for our family of four. It had everything you needed and was very comfortable.

The owner was also very attentive and accommodating providing us with lots of information before we arrived.
