Very comfortable apartment
Great accommodation with everything we needed. Loved the log burner and the mezzanine TV area. A perfect place for a fabulous holiday.
Very comfortable, great location with amazing facilities.
We have had a wonderful holiday. The apartment was fabulous with everything that we could need. The scenery was just stunning and I would highly recommend a Gstaad card to everyone. We spent several days going up the mountains and walking. Then to have the added luxury of going back to our apartment and using the pool and spa followed by a game of pool was such a treat. I managed to keep my 13 and 16 year old boys happy which is never easy!
A perfect place to spend Christmas!
My family spent a wonderful Christmas here. The apartment is cosy and warm, well equipped and furnished to a high standard. We were also delighted to find the apartment festively decorated with a Christmas tree which we very much appreciated. There are lovely views from the kitchen and two bedrooms and the sound of the running stream below was very relaxing. The spa facilities are very good and a perfect way to ease away the aches and pains after a hard day's snowboarding or skiing. La Soldanelle is extremely well managed by a lady called Maya who we found to be extremely kind and helpful during our stay. Chateau d'Oex itself is a very nice village with a supermarket, a range of lovely local shops and restaurants plus easy access to the slopes. We would have no hesitation in recommending a stay in Nick's wonderful apartment and hope to return ourselves in 2014.
Very nice appartement in very quiet location.
We spent a wonderful week in this lovely apartment. Clean and well maintained.
Nice location in very quiet region and with nice mountain view.
I recommend this apartment to spend a relaxing vacations.
A holiday at "Nick's"
This is a superbly equipped apartment with magnificent views. It accommodates six adults comfortably and the outside balcony space faces the east and are therefore very nice for breakfast, from where you can enjoy the scenery that is even better than expected.
The apartment is situated about 700 meters from the centre of Chateau D'Oex, up a fairly steep hill, so if you don't take a car you need to be prepared for this. This was not a problem for us, as we went for some fresh air and exercise, both of which are in plentiful supply.
There are some fantastic walks to be enjoyed, limited only by fitness! The paths are very well signposted, giving a rough idea in hours / minutes of how far away your destination is.
If you have any energy left, the gym and pool in the "Hotel" block are both good.
Switzerland is quite expensive, but the local Co Op is well stocked, so eating at the apartment and enjoying the views was never a hardship.
A holiday at "Nick's" can be whatever you want it to be - relaxing in the sun, simply enjoying the views, walking, cycling and sightseeing - in any combination you wish.
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday here and would have no hesitation recommending this apartment. We'll definitely be back.
Thanks for the really positive review. I am pleased you had a great time and I look forward to hosting you again in the future.
Lovely stay in La Soldanelle in Chateau d'Oex
We (family with 2 kids, age 7 and 4) stayed in La Soldanelle for 3 night and had a lovely time. The apartment is a great place: completely furnished (kitchen, TV DVD etc, more than enough towels) and a very nice atmosphere. We had breakfast every morning at the terrace in the sun, with an astonishing view on the river just aside the building, and the mountains. We also visited the swimming pool (and hot tub etc.) in the main building a few times. Chateau d'Oex is a nice little village, with the centre, a playground for the children and the railway station on walking distance. We made some nice daytrips by car and by train. Would really recommend the place.
