Charming Home in Beautiful Surroundings
Our family of four enjoyed a great 5 days in this house, located in a very cool and quaint little hamlet in the mountains. (My first hamlet in 47 years.)The place has an interesting history about it, which we were eager to learn.
Anneliese and her family were very friendly and helpful with any questions we had regarding the area, and they were quick to resolve any issues with our stay.
Their wonderful recommendations included a trip to the Zauberwald, which was great fun for the boys (6 and 11). Also in the area is the Brigerbad thermal park. As far as kids water parks go, this one was very clean, not so crowded (even on a "busy" day), and reasonably priced. Finally, especially awesome was a gondola ride and hike to the Aletsch Glacier, only minutes from this property.
Even without a drive anywhere, however, just a hike in the neighborhood was worth the trip. There is a kids park and mini-golf nearby, and plenty of paths for hiking or biking, though be prepared to sweat.
This trip was meant to be a stopover on our way from Germany to Italy for a longer stay, but if we only had this on the itinerary, the vacation would have been complete. Highly recommended.
Nice and cozy place in a beautiful surrounding
Nothing fancy but very cozy! We, a family of 5 spend a few days in this lovely hamlet. During the day we explored nature in the area which is absolutely beautiful. At the end of the day we enjoyed the garden of the hamlet for a drink and to relax.
We loved the quiet charming village setting!
Great spot to explore the amazing Swiss mountains of the valais! Owner aneliese is very nice and a great host. We loved the quiet traditional Swiss village setting and the amazing views. Would definitely recommend chalet alpenrose! Perfect location to explore zermatt and the matterhorn, the aletsch arena and all the rest of the amazing valais!
Very cozy and quaint. Fun getting there, but excellent directions. Clean, quiet, relaxing.
We had a great time at Anneliese's place! Clean, comfortable, well supplied and great hosts!
The house is wooden and very authentic for the region. Sits up on a hill so car came in very convenient, and provides for feeling of quietness and relaxation. It was very easy to get to Betten where we got a cable car and then did an amazing hike right next to Aletsch Glacier and even got to go under it and on top of it! The hosts are awesome, responding quickly to messages, easy to communicate with,provided good description to find the house and came to greet us even though we arrived past 10pm! Made sure we felt comfortable and quickly responded positively with our hair dryer request.
The beds are comfortable, cozy and warm although the rooms are rather small. The bathroom is new and great to take shower after exhaustive hike :). The kitchen is old but very well equipped so felt really comfortable. The only stretch to make this an excellent host experience would be to include towels as complementary. But I'd love to stay again at their place when I come back to this region and stay longer. It's a very beautiful area of Switzerland!
