This is Real Switzerland, a place that is little known outside of Switzerland. It has been described by one of our guests as being 'Undiscovered Switzerland'. Eischoll is a beautiful mountain village, very central to enjoy all the benefits that Valais has to offer, yet with so much on the door step, there is little need to go far to enjoy yourself. Come and explore Oberwallis (upper-Valais), take the pace as fast or as slow as you like, and Enjoy it from the comfort of our apartment! In Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. You'll have a great time.
Mostly the view from the living room looking across at 3-4000meter peaks on the other side of the valley. The view hits you from the bedroom, living room and balcony. It's as exciting and relaxing as the pace you set. Sometimes I walk on the miles of walking routes and stop off for a drink and some Walliser specialities and sometimes I just stay around the apartment staring at the view. Its really up to you, so much to do or as little as you want. The thing I love most is starting off the day with a coffee, whilst watching the early morning sun reflect off the snow capped peaks on the other side of the valley. It gives me a feeling of peace. Then of excitement of what I am going to experience today. We'd love to have you get that feeling here too! You will when you stay at our apartment.
If you seek a quiet place to stay and almost empty runs to ski your legs off – Eischoll is the right place for you. The apartment is surprisingly spacious, very warm, quiet, adequately furnished and with a beautiful mountain view. There is a very good choice of DVSs, cable TV and some books for evening entertainment. As the village is so tiny, there is only one grocery shop, not counting the sport shop/ski hire and a couple of restaurants. Free Wi-Fi is offered in the restaurant on the ground floor and if the connection is good you can access the internet from the apartment. Our only suggestions: it would be nice to have bigger cereal bowls and a spare UK travel adapter for guests. The communication with the owners was perfect, all very well organized.
We skied in the neighborhood resort of Unterbach – very good red and blue runs in the upper part of the mountain, but be prepared for T-bar lifts!
We really enjoyed staying in Eischoll and would recommend the apartment without hesitation.
Wir verbrachten wunderschöne Fehrien in dieser gemütlichen Wohnung. Die Aussicht ist fantastisch, man sieht direkt in die Walliserberge. Alles ist in der Nähe, wie zb. Sesselbahn, Luftseilbahn, Restaurant, Proxi, ect. Eischoll ist ein charmantes Typisches Walliserdorf mit vielen Wandermöglichkeiten. Wir werden auf alle Fälle nächstes Jahr wieder kommen.
