Overview

Fribourg country Chalet Rental Photos and Description

The quiet apartment is located in a chalet on the southern slope, 100 m above the 1030 m high-altitude Jaun. There are 2 parking places available. The small village is nestled in a charming Valley of the Fribourg Alps between the Gruyère - and Bernese Oberland. Unspoilt by crowds it offers the image of a historical unspoilt mountain village. The Chalet is an ideal starting point for hikes and mountain tours in warm season for the nature lover. Fresh mountain air, the sight of the pastures and mountains with varied alpine flora will throw away all your worries. Low noise of the remarkable Jauner falls protects your sleep. In the Cantorama, a little old church, you can enjoy classical and popular musical performances. Close to Jaun by car (approx. 8 km) you will find tennis courts and Spa. Free bathing can be done at Lake of Gruyère or in Schwarzsee. For winter sports, all usual options are on-site and nearby.

Restaurants: Hotel/Restaurant Wasserfall in the village on foot in approximately 10 minutes away. Other drive restaurants after 10 minutes can be reached (Jaunpass, Im Fang, Charmey)

Walks: You can start walks and hiking tours directly from the Chalet. The hike routes are marked with signs, a map is not really necessary. Mountain climbs are possible up to 2100 meters.

Very popular is hiking to the Schwarzsee (to and back each direction one and a half hour), to Chalet du Soldat (each direction about two hours) or to the nearest city Charmey (to and back each walk one and a half hour), but also other hikes are highly recommended.

New thermal baths are in Charmey (8 km).

A very modern 4-seater chairlift exists in Jaun since 2011. It opens up various hiking trails in the summer and brings you to beautiful views. It's also used for skiing in the winter (along with 3 other T-bar lifts) and tobogganing.

Great Chalet in Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

During our stay here I spent most of my free time on the balcony taking pictures, Some of the pictures taken there received comments from Facebook friends like "I'm jealous", "is this a postcard?" "There are truly beautiful places on earth." and "That's amazing."

The setting is amazing. The Chalet sits above Jaun and looks out over the small village and the mountains in the distance. You even see the town's waterfall from the balcony.

The Chalet is clean, comfortable and well equipped. There are two units there with separate entrances, the rental is the lower unit (the upper is the owner's vacation home and it is not rented out.) It is quiet and private. The local caretaker and his family are dairy farmers and wonderful people. The owners live in German and are very kind folks.

Jaun has everything you would need, including a market and bank. Unless you are really flexible and good with local bus service, you will need a car. Easy drive to incredible alp scenery, Lake Geneva, castles, vineyards, chocolate factory and Gruyere cheese factory. Hiking galore including walking trails to the next village. It is right on the cusp of Swiss German and French speaking Switzerland, (Juan is on the German side, the next village over speaks mostly French.)

I would highly recommend this Chalet to anyone who wants to relax and see a very special area of Switzerland.

Sehr schönes Chalet in ruhiger Bergwelt.

  • 5 of 5

Nach einigen Jahren waren wir wieder einmal in Jaun zu Gast. Wir hatten uns als Unterkunft für das Chalet Ilse entschieden und waren sehr zufrieden. Das Chalet bietet alles was man für einen ruhigen und entspannten Urlaub benötigt. Die Küche ist komplett ausgestattet und auch der Rest der Wohnung lässt keine Wünsche offen. Überboten wird das Ganze noch von der tollen Aussicht über Jaun, den Wasserfall und das gesamte Tal. Direkt von der Unterkunft aus kann man schöne Wanderungen in die Bergwelt unternehmen. Auch der sehr nahe Jaunpass ist immer einen Besuch wert. Wir haben bei unserem Besuch das sehr nette Vermieter Ehepaar kennengelernt, das uns mit vielen Ausflugstipps versorgte. Wir können das Chalet Ilse nur weiterempfehlen und werden selbst bestimmt wiederkommen.

Schönes Chalet mit fantastischer Aussicht

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben jetzt schon zum zweiten Mal im Jauntal und im Chalet Ilse Urlaub gemacht. Es war auch dieses Mal wieder wunderschön. (Auch wenn das Wetter dieses Jahr nicht so mitgemacht hat).Das Chalet ist gemütlich eingerichtet. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet. Der Blick vom Balkon in das Jauntal hinunter ist fantastisch.Wer Ruhe sucht und dem täglichen Rummel entfliehen möchte, ist hier genau richtig. Auch wenn Internet und Fernsehen vorhanden sind, wir haben es nicht benötigt.Ein Urlaubsort für Leute, die tolle Wanderungen unternehmen wollen und dem lauten Touristenrummel für ein paar Tage entfliehen wollen.

Une magnifique surprise !

  • 5 of 5

Un chalet charmant, spacieux, calme, très bien équipé et magnifiquement situé. Le cadre naturel, à flan de montagne et dominant Jaun et sa vallée, est somptueux.

L'appartement est grand, le séjour très spacieux et le balcon très agréable. L'endroit est calme, même si on entend les cloches des vaches et la cascade de Jaun, mais cela fait le charme du lieu ! L'appartement est très bien équipé, notamment pour les enfants en bas âge (notre fils avait 15 mois). Une place de parking facile d'accès. Endroit idéal pour passer des vacances tranquilles en famille ou pour faire des activités sportives. Possibilités de randonnée nombreuses, villages typiques et visites intéressantes à proximité. Autoroute à 25 min environ.

Gemütliches Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Ein sehr sauberes und gepflegtes Chalet, in dem ausreichend Platz für eine Familie mit Kindern oder bis zu 5 Erwachsene Platz haben. Das Chalet ist gemütlich eingerichtet und bietet auch an kalten Wintertagen, dank des Kamien`s ein warmen aufenthalt. Für Ski Freunde ob Langlauf oder Carving liegt das Chalet Zentral gelegen. Der Ausblick vom Balkon in das Dorf Jaun ist Atemberaubend, und bei einem sanftem rauschen des Wasserfalls lädt er zum träumen ein.

Ich kann jedem dieses Chalet empfehlen der die Berge und die Natur liebt.
