Apartment in an excellent location

  • 4 of 5

Augustine and Celine extremely helpful and quick to respond to any queries.

View of the Staubach Fall beyond the church is lovely as is the view up the valley.

Quiet location and with bus stop for the train station or up the valley 100 yards away and half hourly service during the day to connect with train arrivals and departures.

Well equipped compared with many apartments. The new microwave is simpler but the dinner plates are too big to go in and most other plates and small dishes aren't microwaveable with gold on them.

Superb location for walking and views (given good weather) and very easy to get away for the international crowds going up to and back down Jungfraujoch.

Owner's Response: Dear Dr.Jo Thorp Thank you for the nice review and your experiences in Lauterbrunnen . Nice to have you for a second time in Lauterbrunnen in our apartment . People appreciate the view from the apartment especially from the terrace where you can sit and relax , have your food and drinks looking at the waterfall , mountains etc.. Good you have noticed that there are a few gold line plates which should not be used in the micro oven .We tell the guests also not to put the golden line plates in the micro oven - But still there are plates and quarter plates which you can put inside and use if placed rightly over the stand .If you find them big , if you slide them a little, they will go inside and turn when you switch on . There is also a plastic cover which should be placed over the food and plate to protect it from rays during heating . Wish you all the best for the future trips - You will have something to discover new for your next trip --

A fantastic property and owners

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (two sons aged 14 and 9) stayed here for two weeks. It was an excellent base for us to explore the area. The spacious home was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The location was also very convenient, as it was a quick and easy walk to the train station, grocery store, etc. We loved sitting on the patio in the evening looking at the waterfall and into the valley. Our boys enjoyed the playground that was only about 3-5 minutes away by foot. They also tried the mini golf, which is near the playground, and had a lot of fun. The outdoor swimming pool in town was a big hit, too. We went there a few times, since we were lucky enough to have some really warm days. The owners were very helpful prior to and during our trip. They were pleasant and welcoming and provided good tips of where to go while using our Swiss Travel Pass. We really appreciated the personal attention and ideas that fit our family well. We wish we could have stayed longer. There are so many places to explore in this beautiful region!

Owner's Response: Thank you Christopher for the nice review of your 2 weeks in Lauterbrunnen . From Lauterbrunnen you are able to visit several places including the Jungfrau mountains and several cities of Switzerland with Swiss Pass - You are able to travel to the neighbouring areas of Switzerland which includes Germany, France, and Italy . Yes the Swimming pool is an attraction in high summer here in Lauterbrunnen and it is with a view of the mountains. The play ground is useful for families with children and besides there is a mini golf and tennis ground 300 meters away from the chalet. If you come back you will find further places to discover in Jungfrau region . Glad to know that you have enjoyed Lauterbrunnen -

Perfect location with an incredible view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights as two couples at this vacation rental and it worked out wonderfully for us. Two bedrooms and two baths, one ensuite and the other spacious with double sinks. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and the ensuite bathroom functional but a little on the small side. We could have wished for more than one towel and one wash cloth per person for the entire stay, but I'm quite certain if we would have asked, they would have provided them.

The kitchen was well supplied with needed cookware, etc. and we enjoyed several meals in and also appreciated the ability to pack a lunch to take on our daily ventures. There is even a raclette maker and fondue pot to eat like a local.

The June weather was unseasonably very chilly and rainy for most of our days and they advised us on how to turn on the boiler which had been turned off for the season so we could be comfortable after spending hours in the the cold and rain. When the sun did come out, finally, we enjoyed sitting on the front patio and taking in the beautiful scenery.

There is a short-cut trail up into town center that is a bit steep, but provided a feel like you are part of this little village. If you didn't care to walk the 10 minutes into the commercial area, the bus stop in right in front of the apartment and you can save your legs for those glorious mountain trail hikes. This bus also takes you right to Stechelberg where you get on the cable car to travel up to Schilthorn. A ticket on the bus was about $4.

Augustin and Celeste were very charming and spent a great deal of time providing us with information on our arrival. Their communication prior to and during our stay was exceptional and much appreciated.

This is just a wonderful apartment and we highly recommend it over any of the hotels in the area for the convenience, space and location.

Owner's Response: Thank you Beverly for the wonderful and detailed review. It was unfortunate that you had some rain during your stay but now it is really warm with around 30 c degrees. And in Lauterbrunnen valley you feel cool . It is true you can walk to the railway station in 3 different ways one behind the apartment there is a road and you can cross the Weisse Lutchinen river on a very high bridge where you can hear the sound of the rushing waters. The distance to Stehelberg is 6 kms and hence you have to pay around that amount - But to the railway station it is only about 900 ms . In winter the bus is free for all . Wish you all the best in your discovery trips .

Convenient, comfortable chalet in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

Augustine and Celine are very proud and attentive hosts who were authentically interested in our comfort and contentment. Their chalet is located in a very special location, only a short distance from shops and restaurants in Lauterbrunnen, yet just sufficiently away from town to assure quiet, reasonable privacy, and an exquisite view. No need here to visit a local restaurant for fondue or raclette, the necessary equipment is right in the kitchen. Homemade alpkäse and fresh farm eggs can be bought from local families on the road to Interlaken. Access to the local train station is an easy walk across the river, up a short hill, and down the main street, if you have a mind to go up to the Jungfraujoch, for a memorable experience. Ever walk inside a glacier? Or get a view of what seemed like a third of Europe? The view of the falls lit up at night is enchanting. When we were there, a folk festival was going on nearby. We were treated to yodeling, alphorns, and (LOL) a country-western band from Chicago. Our party had two vehicles, converging from different locations. Convenient parking right by the chalet for one vehicle was free, and very inexpensive parking for the second was closeby. We were very happy with our hosts and their chalet, and would enthusiastically return.
