Bürchen Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, (Sleeps 6)

The Hillegonde holiday home (95 m) is around 1600 m high and located above the town of Visp, bordering the famed Saasdal (Saas Valley). You can go straight up to the ski runs from your holiday home! After an exhausting day outdoors you can come back here to relax in a warm bath or warm yourself up in front of a crackling fire in the fireplace. You can use the common swimming pool, solarium, wifi and sauna in the hotel next door for a fee.

Bürchen is a quiet town located on a gorgeous mountain plateau, and it is known as the town of birches. The town is the tourist centre of the Augstbord area. The area is perfectly suited for making robust hiking trips. There are many marked hiking trails and mountain paths (around 500 km of them). The region is made up of thick forests and rich Alpine flora. There is a training run (fitness-parcours), and there are many places where you can have a picnic in the fresh mountain air. You can make various bus excursions to breathtaking glaciers and many other nice places for an outing, of which Saasdal has many.

The winter sport enthusiast will find a perfect destination in Bürchen. Bürchen has a great ski area with 6 ski lifts, which will bring you to the well prepared ski runs. With a maximum height of 2550 m, the area has much to offer both beginners and more experienced skiers. There is a Swiss skiing school which will gladly bring you up to speed in the fine art of skiing. Various events are organised, including torchlight processions, guest games, street competitions and skiing trips. There are also cross-country skiing routes, lighted sledding runs and hiking trails. After a full day of skiing, you can go enjoy the different restaurants in the town and their Swiss cuisine.

Bürchen is the ideal holiday resort both in summer and winter, for guests of all ages!

  • 3 of 5

Leider war das Wetter bis auf 2 Tage alles andere als wallis-typisch – nämlich regnerisch und kalt (in Bürchen 12 - 17 Grad Tagestemperatur) entsprechend verbrachten wir etwas mehr Zeit als geplant im Haus, welches wir aus folgenden Gründen nicht sehr gemütlich fanden

– an einem Tag gab es erst abends warmes Wasser

– Badewanne mit Duschvorhang ließ kein entspanntes Duschen zu, außerdem war ein Wasserbegrenzer im Duschkopf, der nur ein Rinnsal durchließ (Tipp aufschrauben und herausnehmen)

– die Heizung war schwach, besonders im Schlafbereich des oberen Stockwerks

– TV-Sender gab es nur niederländische – der Sendersuchlauf nach SFB (zwecks Nachrichten mit Wetterprognose) war ergebnislos

– im Schlafzimmer waren mehrere Schrankteile verschlossen und kein Schlüssel dafür vorhanden

– die Schlafzimmertür war (trotz vorhandenem Schlüssel) nicht abschließbar, weil defekt

– die Innenausstattung ist geschmacklich wohl nicht jedermanns Sache ... unsere jedenfalls überhaupt nicht Vorderladergewehr und Schweinekopf sowie andere Jagdtrophäen an der Wand finden wir abscheulich

Außerdem haben wir zu bemängeln

– die Schlüsselübergabe sollte zwischen 15 und 18 stattfinden, was uns zu früh war. Eine Anfrage per E-Mail wurde nicht beantwortet, weshalb wir uns auf der Autobahn abhetzten, statt gemächlich Passfahrten genießen zu können der Schlüssel steckte dann bei unserer Ankunft in der offenen Türe innen

– keine Hinweise über Abfallentsorgungsvorgaben

– nur knapp 2 Rollen Toilettenpapier vorhanden

- DAS SCHLIMMSTE WAR ABER DER UNERTRÄGLICHE WASCHMITTELGESTANK DER GESAMTEN GELAGERTEN WÄSCHE!!! Wir hatten ohnehin eigene Bettdecken, -kissen und -bezüge sowie Handtücher dabei, aber der Waschmittelduft war permanent im ganzen Haus und störte uns sehr!

Prima ietwat gedateerd vrij ruim chalet. Alles werkt naar behoren, en het grootste voordeel is de super zonligging. Voor wandelaars en skiërs prima ligging, wil je veel in de omgeving doen met de auto dan wordt de 10 kilometer bochten draaien je naar een paar dagen zat. Buren is een hotel/restaurant waar ik buitengewoon goed heb gedineerd. Al met al zeer genoten en een goede prijs/kwaliteit.
