We very much enjoyed our stay at the Chalet in Darstetten. After being in Zurich for one day, we loved the quiet of the country. It was the perfect place to relax after sight seeing the Berner Oberlander area.
Thank you very much for your nice feedback. You are welcome at any time.
We spent a week this summer in the Berner Oberland at the chalet in Därstetten. The house is clean and spacious with a great view to the mountains. I would recommend that you come by car as it is not within walking distance of grocery shops or restaurants.
The house was beautiful and our family enjoyed it thoroughly. The only minus is that there are no shutters or curtains so my kids woke up as soon as the sun came up.
Highly recommend for a week of relaxing and gorgeous scenery.
thank you very much for your nice feed-back. And you are right: We will think about the curtains!
You are welcome again, whenever you like!

Superb chalet and picturesque surroundings
We (5 adults and 2 young children) spent one week in this beautiful chalet in April 2016. Booking and contact were super. We were warmly welcomed by the caretaker. The whole chalet is amazingly handcrafted, it is in a good condition and everything works well. Three spacious (you might also say sparsely furnished) bedrooms and two well functioning bathrooms (one with a shower cabin and one with a large bathtub) provided enough space and privacy for all of us. The living room is spacious, filled with light and comfortable with stunning views over the Simmental. The kitchen works well and there are enough cutlery and cooking items (as well as leftovers such as pasta, condiments, flours, oils) to prepare a good meal for six. We missed only a microwave oven. Washing machine/tumbler worked well, as well as the Internet. You can also sit outside on a terrace and enjoy the sun until late afternoon. There is also an outdoor bathtub, which we did not use - we had snowfall during three days and nobody felt like bathing outside. But the snowfall made the scenery even more spectacular!
You should be aware that due to the wooden construction - even though beautiful and warm - the rooms in the chalet are not sound proof at all. You hear almost everything between the rooms and also between the storeys. We as grandparents/children/grandchildren were not bothered, but in another situations we might find it cumbersome.
The whole neighborhood is beautiful and would be a cliche if it were not for real! It is also very, very peaceful up there - if only cow bells do not disturb you. The drive up to the chalet and parking at the chalet are steep and require a four wheel drive or snow chains when snowing. A good supermarket (although without baby food!) is just a few minutes drive away below the chalet (you can also walk there, but the way back up to the chalet requires a good condition).
All in all, we were very pleased with everything and would certainly book again!
thank you very much for your detailed feed-back. We are very pleased , that you have enjoyed the place and the house. The description is absolutely right. You are warmly welcome for another stay.
Best regards and thanks again for the time you have spend to give as a nice feed-back:)
"Our Christmas vacation s...
"Our Christmas vacation stay could not have been more charming and enjoyable, beginning with a lovely "wilkommen" sign and poinsettia that greeted us in the kitchen. Due to snowy weather (and to be on the safe side), we parked our car in a free lot at the base of the mountain, and Silvia the house manager graciously picked us up and helped us get settled in. She cheerfully acquainted us with the house and could not have been nicer! The photos of the chalet do not begin to do it justice; it was gorgeous, spacious, and immaculately clean. The fireplace/heating system kept the house especially warm and cozy through the winter days. The rooms have sweeping, unobstructed views of the mountains, and the tiny community is quite peaceful. We were able to take in some wonderful hikes, snowshoeing and sledding within steps of the chalet - very convenient. Silvia also told us that skiing is a 10-15 drive away, although we chose to take it easy. I definitely hope to return one day!"
Es ist wie nach Hause kommen
Wir waren nun schon das dritte Jahr in Folge in diesem wunderschönen Haus und haben uns wieder wie zu Hause gefühlt.
Es gibt nichts schöneres, als sich nach einem Tag auf der Skipiste auf der Kaminbank zu entspannen. Wir kommen gerne wieder.
Es gibt nichts Schöneres, als das Haus mit dankbaren Gästen zu teilen!
Herzlichen Dank für die liebe Rückmeldung. Sie sind jederzeit wieder willkommen.
Wunderbar charmantes Chalet
Wir haben 5 Tage über Ostern im Chalet verbracht. Wir waren drei Generationen und alle haben sich überaus wohl gefühlt. Das Chalet entspricht dem Beschrieb und den Fotos. Es ist wunderbar charmant, ganz aus Holz und vorzüglich ausgestattet. Das Wetter war wechselhaft, doch wir konnten die schöne Umgebung trotzdem geniessen und in beide Richtungen auf dem Simmentaler Hausweg wandern.
From Bern, take the A6 highway in the direction of Thun, and then towards Zweisimmen. At the end of the highway, continue in the direction of Zweisimmen until the town of Därstetten. After the train station and a restaurant, turn right in the direction of Nidfluh. Follow the road until the hamlet of Nidfluh. On the left side, above the road, you will see the Chalet. After the road closure, turn left and drive to the Chalet. All year round, many activities are possible from the Chalet Nidfluh. The Bernese Oberland offers countless outdoor possibilities, such as hiking, climbing, biking, kayak, and so on. At the same time, there is a major offering of cultural events in Thun, Bern, Interlaken, Lenk, or Gstaad. Along the Simmenthal House Trail (Hausweg), of which our Chalet is a part, discover gorgeous houses, many from the 17th century such as the Knuttihaus in Därstetten town. In Oberwil, you can see prehistoric caves and find signs of the Celts all around. Electric bikes, which can be rented from the Stockhorn cableway, are much-loved. In winter, the ski regions of Diemtigtal, Lenk, Zweisimmen and Gstaad offer well-tended ski slopes, cross-country ski trails, winter hiking trails, and toboggan runs. In Diemtigtal, ski touring fans come to enjoy themselves; families with small children find ideal conditions on the Grimmialp for skiing and skating. For ski fans, the ski regions of Zweisimmen, Gstaad, and Lenk are not far away, with their infinite possibilities for winter sports. Recommended websites:
