About Juliet Fowles

I fell in love with the area in 2002. The scenery, outdoor lifestyle and low crime rate are just some of the reasons we decided to stay.

Paragliding, Skydiving, Hiking, Hang gliding, Canyon Jumping, sledding, snow-shoeing, skiing and snowboarding are activities available during the winter. For the less adventurous and families there heaps of famous train journeys, boat rides on either Lake Thun or Lake Brienz and lots of day that include amazing playing parks. There are children friendly hiking routes, with bbq spots on the way. The 1st of August is National Swiss Day. The day has continuous events, parades and is capped of with one off with a brilliant fireworks at 10pm followed by live bands. Basically Interlaken has so much to do, I am still working my through the list. The safety, simple style of life and beauty of the place is why I feel lucky to live here. I truly cannot recommend it enough.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. We used the property as a jumping off point to explore the region, as it is nicely located near Interlaken, Jungfrau, Mürren, etc with an easy drive to all. We had a car, but the local transport links look to be very easy and convenient to get wherever you need to go. We had dinner in Bönigen a few times, it was out of season so nothing was busy. With two small children, we didn't use the separate downstairs bedroom other than to store our luggage, and use the second bathroom. We slept on the sofa bed, and the kids had the bedroom, so we could keep an ear out for them. With older children, or separate friends staying, the separate bedroom would get more use. As it was autumn, the property was situated on the shady side of the lake, so we didn't use the outside space as much, but see how this would be great in the summer. Having said this, even just sitting inside, and looking out of the large sliding doors, we enjoyed the scenery and changing weather very much; it made for a relaxing holiday. Everything we needed for cooking and eating was provided, and the owners left very helpful information for the property and region. We had a great time, and are already planning another trip the the region.

We loved it!

  • 4 of 5

The house is exactly as described, comfortable and very nice. Juliet, the owner, was prompt in answering any questions before our trip, very helpful in providing us with things to do, and when we didnt know how to work the washing machine and we called her, she came to the house and explained how it works. Thank you Juliet for everything.

villa with a lovely view

  • 4 of 5

A lovely villa with a spectacular view of the lake. Just 6 - 8 mins by bus from Interlaken Ost station. It away from the bustle of the city centre yet very easily accessible by bus or car. It takes just 10 mins to reach the town centre. The kitchen was well equipped. The only draw back was the steep climb of abot 100 - 125m to the villa from the main road (which can be offset by the spectacular view) and the bedroom on level 1 was bit cramped.

Overall I will surely recommend the villa and the lovely host Juliet.
