We spent three unforgettable weeks in summer in this absolutely gorgeous apartment. The flat is situated in the most scenic and peaceful corner of the Gstaad-Saanen area and is within easy reach of Gstaad by car or bus. It is beautifully decorated, impeccably maintained and immaculately fitted out with great attention to every detail. The views from every room are breathtaking. The proprietor responded immediately to all our queries and could not have been more helpful or welcoming during our stay. I would not think of staying anywhere else and look forward to a return visit to this “home away from home” in the near future.
It is very comfortable apartment for small families with children or without them. There are a lot of adventure places all through the neighbourhood. The excellent view is ensured by very long balcony around the apartment. The place is very suitable for cyclists.
My family and I stayed in this luxury accommodation in January 2009. The apartment was equivalent to a 5 star hotel with thought and attention to every detail. The beds were fantastically comfortable with excellent quality bed linen and bedding. The kitchen was superbly equipped and the wonderful sitting room and log fire were a joy to spend a relaxed evening in. The owners are at hand to advise and assist with any needs you may have and were truly wonderful company. Before leaving we re booked for 2010 and will continue to book for many years to come. The Location of the apartment is truly stunning and the views are quite spectacular. A little piece of heaven.
We were very lucky to have found this wonderful apartment while searching the internet for a short holiday break. We spotted it on Wednesday late afternoon and on Saturday we arrived in the apartment. Everything was quick and professionally organized on such a short notice. We are frequent business travellers, so pretty spoiled but up till now this has been the only holiday apartment to match a 5-star hotel. The owner has thought of the smallest details and is very kind and helpful. We highly recommend this apartment to everyone who is looking for a place where they can feel “home” in the middle of an impressive nature with the facilities of Gstaad within reach. Unfortunately this time we could only stay for one week but we are planning to return for a longer period of time.
We rented this apartment for two weeks in the summer and enjoyed every moment. The Bernese Oberland is one of the most stunning alpine environments I have seen. Lauenen is the best kept secret. The apartment was just beautiful, great views, very well fitted out, comfortable and sophisticated. The proprietor was very friendly, helpful and responded immediatly to all our emails. I highly recommend this property.
We spent the most beautiful holiday in this great place. Owners were super to deal with, instant replies to any questions during the booking process, and everything was so welcoming on arrival. Apartment itself was very well decorated and far superior in comparison to the usual holiday rental flat. It felt more like a home. Great fireplace.
The authentic village of Lauenen is located at the end of its own valley, 6 km from the centre of Gstaad. The valley opens wide at that point and offers a stunning far reaching view. The chalet is on the north side of the valley, facing south, hence very sunny and light. The small village has not much changed over time, all chalets without exception are of the traditional wooden built. There are three charming hotel/restaurants and two village shops with bakery. The road stops at the village and there are many walks and hikes in all directions. The well known lake, the Lauenensee, is a memorable 2 hour walk, with a possible stop at the lake in one of two little restaurants. There is public transport into Gstaad all year round and in the winter to the lifts of the region. The drive to Gstaad is 10 minutes where this international destination offers many luxury shops, large choice of restaurants and of course the famous Gstaad Palace Hotel, with its bar, restaurants, spa and night club.
