About Sue Gwilliam

We love Switzerland, especially this area. Having spent many family holidays in the Bernese Oberland, we moved here 10 years ago. We encourage others to enjoy this wonderful place and offer lots of tips to help you discover the best of the region. We are both well travelled and understand how important it is to find the right holiday home.

Sue Gwilliam purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Sue Gwilliam chose Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau

Past guests have loved my apartment and found it to be good value for money. Murren is beautiful, unspoilt and car-free. It features in many published bucket lists e.g. 100 places to visit before you die! Chalet Traumli is in the typically Swiss wooden style in a quiet residential area of the village, overlooking a small pasture with panoramic views of the mountains. The apartment has been thoroughly renovated and modernised inside, and is light and spacious. Guests enjoy a well-equipped kitchen, perfect for preparing real food and a dining area to entertain friends. There is something about Traumli that makes you feel calm and restful, from the moment you arrive. There are 7 apartments in total in this building and our neighbours are Swiss and friendly.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a very clean and well-maintained apartment. The quiet location and its own garden, ensure a peaceful setting. Our apartment feels snug yet airy with lots of natural light in the lounge/kitchen/dining area. We have deliberately not squeezed in extra beds or bunk beds, as we wanted to offer our guests something a little more comfortable and spacious. A baby cot/playpen suitable for up to 15 kg is available, with linen, towel and changing mat (for a small extra charge). The view from the garden, lounge and balcony is spectacular. WiFi is included in the price. Homely touches include books, CDs and DVDs, to encourage you to slow down and relax. A Breakfast Pack is available on request, allowing you to relax or dash out to the slopes on your first the morning.

Owner listens to your requests and does her best to ensure your holiday dreams and expectations are fulfilled.

Generally guests are met at the station by the owner and taken to the apartment.

Lovely stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a very pleasurable stay in this cozy apartment. Great location, comfortably fitted out and easy for self-catering. Sue was very accommodating with us and helpful with the non-trivial logistics of staying in Murren.

The apartment was everything we wanted

  • 5 of 5

Sue was a pleasure to rent from. She was quick to respond to any questions during the rental process and was a pleasure to meet when we arrived.

The apartment was perfect for our needs as a family of 3. The kitchen had everything we needed. We had just arrived from the US and having the DVD player was great as we didn't make it out very late. Watching On Her Majesty's Secret Service is a must for anyone about to jump on the gondola to Schilthorn. Loved that it was there. One of the campiest Bond movies but a must before heading up.

Murren was an absolutely perfect town for us. Plenty of places to eat and the hiking in the area was unbelievable.

We will be back to Murren and would absolutely rent again from Sue.

Lovely place to be

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very clean and well prepared; the proprietress very friendly.

The place with its wooden furniture and walls is very cosy. Equipment: All you need is there!

In wintertimes the way to the apartment can be slippery because of the icy steps outside.

To let it Sunday till Sunday is a very good idea of the owner because on Saturdays there's a big rush hour around Mürren (in front of - and in the cable car, in the village as well as in the supermarket...)

Thanks a lot for that wonderful winter holiday!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. I'm pleased that you had a wonderful holiday in Chalet Traumli. Guests may arrive and depart any day at most times in the year, and we offer both Saturday and Sunday changeovers in peak season (New Year and February school holidays). Outside these peak times, guests are pleasantly surprised by the lack of queues especially at the ski lifts. After a warm start to the ski season, Murren has had loads of snow in recent weeks and every path is snow-covered. We're hoping for a great end of season with all this powder, hopefully right up to mid April this year.

clean, cozy, quiet flat

  • 5 of 5

clean, cozy, quiet flat with lots of very useful equipment, e.g. in the kitchen you'll find almost anything you need to prepare your meals.

very close to the cablecar in mürren

enough space, a big bedroom with a nice double bed. useful bathroom

nice people who rent the flat and also nice people who life in the same house.

the thing to improve would be a stable workbench to prepare your skis or snowboards (very specific).

This idyllic, car-free mountain village has a charm you cannot help falling in love with. The Jungfrau range seems almost close enough to touch but still a long way off, as Mürren sits on a sunny terrace above the Lauterbrunnen Valley. A winter sports resort, with Sports Centre offering guests free access to large swimming pool with jacuzzi and ice rink (ice rink in winter season only), and a beautiful Wellness Centre. Perfect during the rest of the year too for hiking, spectacular waterfalls, exploring this stunning region by train, mountain biking and other adventure sports, or simply enjoy being at one with nature. Don't miss a trip to the top of the Schilthorn, including a visit to the 007 James Bond exhibition, the revolving restaurant and newly opened viewing platform. Home to the Inferno Triathlon (August) and the longest downhill ski race (January). Convenient base for the Lauberhorn Ski Races. Various other amateur snowboarding and ski events throughout the season. Great sledging! Take a day trip to Wengen or up to the top of the Jungfrau (ice palace) in any season - the highest point in the Alps reachable by train. During the summer, visit Trummelbach Falls, valley museum or hike to a local dairy for lunch.

Featured on the BBC as the launch place for base-jumpers and popular with paragliders (book your tandem trip in the village). Other summer adventure sports include the Via Ferrata, hanging 800m above the valley floor and ending with the Nepalese bridge (not for the faint-hearted). This is a stunning location for both relaxation and activities.
