About Cornelia Schönbächler

Our family of five lives and works on our farm. Beside the agriculture we dedicated ourselves to the agrotourism. Guests from all over the world are a real gain for us and the personal contact is really important to us.

Cornelia Schönbächler purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Cornelia Schönbächler chose Einsiedeln

The agricultural sector is changing also here in Switzerland. Thus, we constructed a building in 2009, which has a hall to store our machines on the ground floor and which can be used as an apartment and B&B on the upper floor. Regarding the location, it was always clear, that we place much importance on the view of lake and mountains. We really have succeeded in that! Zurich, Lucerne and central Switzerland can all be reached within the hour – and thus some of the loveliest places to see in Switzerland!

What makes this apartment unique

To spend your holidays on the countryside while still having the metropolis of Switzerland nearby has many advantages.

The family-friendly surrounding invites everybody to linger. Whether an excursion with children or with your couple - you´ll never get bored.

Schöne Wohnung, super-nette Familie, super Lage

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic week on the Schönbächler Farm in the vacation quarters. We are a family of six, including some tall people. However, there was ample space and the beds were big enough for all of us. Many winter sport apartments are just for spending the night and waking up early to go to the slopes. Not so here. The apartment was so ´gemütlich´ that we enjoyed spending some time there during the day as well, playing games and watching some winter Olympics.

The surroundings are quite astounding as well. We witnessed some magnificent sunsets over the Sihlsee and joined in some carnaval festivities in Einsiedeln, 5 km down the road. Einsiedeln is a great place to visit including the ´Kloster´ and great walking trails into the woods. Plenty of space to go sledding as well and the last few days the ski-lifts for the little ones were open as well.

From the vacation house to the main ski-areas Brunni -Alpthal and Hoch-Ybrig is no longer than a 20 minute drive by car. Brunni has some easier slopes and is smaller compared to Hoch Ybrig, where you have quite some more slopes and choices, including a large sledding trail with the possibility to go back up with the Chair Lift.

The best ski/snow-board -rental option you can find in Einsiedeln at Wisel Kälin Intersport opposite the train station. Quick service, plenty of choice and once they changed a binding we broke at no cost. So totally hassle-free.

All in all a great, cozy, modern, vacation house in a great location. Very calm and quiet environment, yet within half an hour drive to many options and attractions. Every day we received fresh milk from family Schönbächler at no extra cost. The last day it was very slippery around the house which was quickly taken care of by Mr. Schönbächler.

Sehr empfehlenswert!

Alles super: gemütliche Wohnung, leckerer Frühstückskorb, ruhig am See, zentral für Aktivitäten

  • 5 of 5

Wir kommen gerne nächstes Jahr wieder zum Erholen und Wandern, weil es uns bei Fam. Schönbächler super gefallen hat und dann etwas früher zum Baden im See. Einfach traumhafte Lage! Absolut ruhig, aber doch zentral für alle weiteren Aktivitäten.
