  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, free-standing chalet, lovingly redone and furnished. Amazing, caring attention to detail--in furnishings and in decoration. We were very comfortable, felt at home, and lacked nothing.

I loved the very typical old side porch, running the length of the house, with a door on one end, and windows all along the side.

What did surprise me is the astonishing location of this 400 year old chalet, in the owner's fields on a sloping mountainside with clear views of the Wetterhorn, Eiger, and surrounding mountains. There is a sense of spaciousness, as there are few structures immediately near this chalet, other than its own separate apartment, included in the rental, and modern garages for the owner's farm equipment.

The large, beautiful master bedroom is right off the living room.

The other large bedroom is upstairs--steep stairs--and has a double bed, and a single bed, and 3 large, ample closets.

There are lovely Swiss cupboards in the living room and kitchen. There is a separate room for boots, jackets, etc., just off that old Swiss porch.

The chalet has been in the owner's family for generations. His partner is delightful, and she speaks many languages. The owner actively farms with his son. They have 6 cows--highly valued in Grindelwald. His partner manages a small, beautiful gift shop in town.

We have frequented Grindelwald for 45 years, visited 30-40 times. Through the years, we have camped in both campgrounds, stayed in an old hotel, and in 5 different chalets, or apartments in chalets. Chalet Bernet is my favorite. It is a charmer!

Chalet Bernet --An Authentic and Exceptional Swiss Experience

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed in Grindelwald for 45 years, and stayed in one hotel, 2 camping grounds, and 5 different chalets in our 30 or 40 visits.

Nothing we had seen or read about Chalet Bernet prepared us for its remarkable location--set on a mountainside with exceptional views all around of high mountains around Grindelwald, notably the Wetterhorn and the Eiger-- and the warmth and charm of the lovingly restored interior.

We felt right at home in this cosy chalet. Of our many visits to Grindelwald, this one made us feel "part of" and not like mere "visitors."

Chalet Bernet is a free standing chalet, not an apartment within a chalet.

There is a modern structure opposite the chalet which includes the separate single bedroom and bathroom(shower) which is included in this chalet's rental, and "garages" for the owner's farm equipment.

The chalet and this opposite structure are surrounded by alpine meadows. The owner has 5 or 6 cows--currently in the higher mountains above Grindelwald for the warm months, as is typical of all Grindelwald cows. He and a son were out working, cutting and bringing in the hay. They were unobtrusive.

The chalet has been in the owner's family for generations.

The owner's partner is a charmer, and speaks many languages. She manages a small, unique gift shop in town. They live near the center of town, but the thoughtful owner--again, he does not intrude-- is around on his property almost daily.

The main floor includes the typical, sheltered and windowed Swiss porch running the width of the house; a separate room for boots, coats; a well-equipped kitchen with corner table; a modern bathroom with heated floor and bathtub. The living room includes another, larger table, and 2 sofas. A large bedroom is just off the living room.

The beautiful tiled kitchen floor is heated and blue, like a water-color.

There are several charming wooden cupboards in the kitchen and living room.

The chalet has lovely, decorative, and some-uselful details, in cushions, carved cows, paintings, and hanging cards, old skis and poles, and a big, decorated cow bell. Very nice lighting fixtures.

Upstairs is a large bedroom with one double bed, one single, 3 very large closets.

There were window boxes full of geraniums on the main and upper floor and a garden down front, with flowers and vegetables.

A washer and dryer are on a lower (basement) level, entered from an exterior door.

We were comfortable here. Our vacation was wonderful.

Perfect holiday home for our 3 generation family!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent chalet, large spacious, very well equipped with rooms that suited us perfectly for a our Summer vacation. The owner was very friendly and helpful but never intrusive. Location is blissful, set outside Grindelwald but easily accessed on foot (20 mins walk) or via the free bus which runs regularly throughout the day, but not after 7pm. We had a hire car but only used it once for shopping in Interlaken, and on our journey to and from Zurich airport. We spent 2 weeks walking in the area, but never ran out of interesting and challenging walks. The town had lots of shops and restaurants but expect to pay at least double British prices. We went swimming twice, mainly to cool down as the weather was glorious, and got a good discount due to the guest pass, and on one occasion the whole swimming baths to ourselves. The only thing I would have liked that wasn't there was an iron, but there was a washer and dryer and outside washing line. Best holiday ever.... We travelled with a 3 year old and he loved it, we will return when his not yet born brother is similar age. The walks we did would be a struggle for a younger child or one less willing to keep going! The chalet was safe and secure for children and he loved collecting mountain water from the spring. All walks encompass hills, some very steep, so a reasonable degree of fitness is required to fully enjoy this location! Don't forget to go outside after dark to experience the star filled sky!

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to Grindelwald from Australia and House Bernet was everything we could have wished for as a place to base ourselves to explore the region. The well equipped home is nicely renovated in typical Swiss style. Located on a grassy hill, surrounded by the highest of mountains, we often enjoyed the quiet and seclusion, finishing our day with a glass of wine and local cheese, overlooking the Grindelwald valley and watching the setting sun. A car is necessary to take advantage of all the surrounding activities and walks in the area, although there are also many walks within a stones throw of the property. Our hosts were welcoming and very obliging.

As the title says, our third visit and it was as wonderful as ever. The location, view and aspect is to die for. The owners are super helpful and the property well fitted out, with parking right outside the house. The patio at the back is south facing so when the weather is nice, it's great to sit in the sun and enjoy the view in peace and quiet. My favour holiday location.
