About Roland Rosset

We are passionated travellers and love to share our travel experiences with our guests from all over the world. We hosted already more than 250 groups over the last 4 years. We always try to give as much involvement as desired from the guests. So far we have reached our objective to achieve a five star rating (including other online platforms). We just started on HomeAway and hope to get in touch with new interesting guests on this online platform, too.

Roland Rosset purchased this villa in 2007

Why Roland Rosset chose Obwalden

We think, houses of that kind a hardly to be rented because owners like to keep their houses of their own. We love to host and to share our unique Villa with people of a certain touch of class. People, who love to enjoy a very straight and clean architecture and the unique nature of Switzerland.

What makes this villa unique

Great architecture from Urs Spirig - stunning views to Lake Sarnen and the Sachsler Mountain Chain - the unique Chillout Room with the large balcony platform, beamer tv and the fire place - beach access - sauna.

The Villa is 5 kilometers away from the geographical center of Switzerland - therefor you can reach all the relevant hotspots of this unique country within an hour or so.

The passionated hosts try to make your stay unforgettable!

Fantastic views and a great host

  • 5 of 5

We travelled across Switzerland, Austria and France and thought this was by far the most beautiful of all the places we stayed. Very good for both walking and relaxing and the air is so clear.

If you stay in Sarnen we strongly recommend going up mount Pilatus via the cog railway, down by cable car and gondola then back across the lake by ferry.

We travel quite a bit and occasionally use rentals. Villa Wilen was an unexpected and exceptional discovery. The house is an architectural masterpiece located on Lake Sarnen with dramatic views of the water and surrounding snowcapped mountains. The setting was tranquil yet inspiring. The property was clean, well maintained and accurately depicted in the description. Our host, Roland and his family, were gracious and very helpful. The central location allowed us to complete our itinerary in northern and central Switzerland with day trips and return to our deck overlooking the lake to sample the Swiss wines and food we collected during the day. We would highly recommend this property and are likely to return.

definitely the best villa in 4 years at HomeAway

  • 5 of 5

Roland's villa is a perfect combination of style and home-like cosiness. We spent here a beautiful New Year with a nice Christmas-tree (a special thanks to Roland and Claudia's daugter for this!), made friends with a lazy cat named Flo and updated our musical library. The view from the villa is unforgettable. And when the snow melted down we found a perfect little pond full of goldfish.

The description of the villa is complete and accurate, the property was very clean and well-maintained, and the cleaner left just before our arrival. I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone and would return here myself. Thanks!

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

This is an exceptional property. The architecture and finishes are truly high-end.....and it was very comfortable. The views across the Lake are unsurpassed. You just have to see it to appreciate it. The owners were welcoming and very easy to deal with. We had a wonderful stay.

Staying at Roland's house has been one of the best experiences for me. I was there for 2 days with my family and I was increasingly glad all the time that I made the decision of staying in this most extraordinary house. It's fully equipped and extremely comfortable. And, it's way better in reality as compared to the pictures that are on the website. I was really at peace to wake up to the stunning views from our Chillout room, looking at the peaceful lake and the gorgeous mountains behind it. And to top all of this, I could hardly write enough about Roland's unmatched hospitality. He welcomed us warmly into his house and made all efforts to ensure that we were comfortable. He also had many suggestions and ideas for activities around the area, which helped us a lot. I highly recommend staying at his house if you are looking for a memorable time. I had a truly great vacation!
