Nice and spacious apartment with breathtaking view. Beautiful surroundings. Nice for hiking and driving around. Bathropes where missing and the administrator of the building was not happy with children in the pool. But overall we where really happy with our stay.
it is so lovely to hear you and family had a wonderful time and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings . Not sure why the concierge commented on children in the pool . Children are welcome albeit under a certain age , spa rules require their supervision .
Luxury in the mountains
Well fitted apartment in a building with 5 star amenities, over looking a breath taking view of the valley and mountains. Sroundded by a quite and welcoming village.
My whole family were in desperate need of a fun and relaxing family holiday. Had to be right for two grand parents, two energetic kids and two tired parents. La soldanelle and Chateaux d’oex fitted the bill brilliantly. Lots of things to do in the surrounding areas, plenty of space to relax, great swimming pool, friendly people and beautiful mountain scenery.
Thanks to Anna for renting the apartment and thanks for Ernest for being so helpful on our arrival
Great time had by all
Elegant and charming place
Perfect 5 weeks vacation in this lovely apartment situated a walking distance to all amenities, shops and restaurant in the village.
The apartment is very nice and practical, it offers beautiful views over the mountain. it provides all necessary items and equipment on may need. It was very clean upon arrival. The lay out is very good with a large living room facing south and a terrace for the views. Very quiet for there are no streets around.
The building is equally elegant with a great hall and wonderful facilities for all ages in the family.
The owner is very nice and has been very helpful. Check in is facilitated by pleasant and reliable manager.
All in all a very nice place I warmly recommend.
Superb accomodation spacious and stylish
Awesome views in such a stylish apartment , modern and luxurious with owners that actually care and great service. We travel around Europe a lot and this is by far the most stylish and luxurious that we have stayed in. Great facilities in the building good size pool, steam room, sauna & jacuzzi. They even have a massage room and a pool table.
The kitchen was well equipped plenty of plates, cutlery and cups and cooking pans .
Dining table comfortably sits 8 we had 10 round the table one night. A lovely large balcony with panoramic mountain views with additional dining table for 8, didnt get to use it as a bit cold in November. Clean limestone bathrooms.
Great signal on the Wi fi and good selection of dvds to watch. I have already booked to go back again , cant wait !
Luxury in the mountains
A group of 8 of us stayed at this apartment in September for family wedding. It has everything you need for a week long stay and more. The apartment block has excellent facilities, gym, swimming pool, saunas, lounges and parking. It has a lift to all floors, and we had an elderly guest with us who had no problems getting around with a walking stick.
It is located in Chateau d'Oex which is a small town with lots of character and enough to keep you occupied for a couple of days, with Geneva and Lausanne within striking distance too.
The only slight issues we had:
No WIFI in the apartment, although you could access the communal wifi if you stood by the apartment front door with the door open.
Vast majority of shops close on a Sunday, so arriving on a Sunday meant we had to buy food and travel with it.
Could possibly do with more cooking products- pots and pans, we struggled to cater for the 8 of us as we didn't have quite enough.
The apartment has a lovely balcony, with hot air balloons going over early in the morning, good size rooms and bathrooms, huge living area with dining table and comfy sofa. Slept 8 comfortably, 2 twin rooms and 2 doubles. Enough storage space for a weeks worth of food. It was very clean on arrival.
Highly recommend it, decent value for money for the level of accommodation provided and a good location to go exploring.
Chateau d'Oex is in many ways the quintessential Swiss alpine resort. Nestled on the South side of a valley amongst the French speaking Alps. The town is the picture of a quaint ski village. To the west is the famous cheese making town of Gruyere and approx 15 minutes drive to the east the glamorous town of Gstaad.
Chateau d'Oex has a vast array of activities year round. Skiing and snowboarding are the most popular activities here, with plenty of trails for both novice and the advanced skier.
Perhaps the most exciting time to visit this resort is towards the end of January when the international hot air balloon festival is held. This is truly a breath-taking sight from the top of the slopes across the valley as hundreds of balloons decorate the sky.
With options year round and plenty of them at that Chateau d'Oex makes an ideal vacation anytime of the year. Car is recommended although not essential
Other Activities: ice skating, cablecar, heritage museum, bowling, sleighrides, toboganing, hot air ballooning, whitewater rafting, mini golf, canoeing cheese making,
Golf: Within 1hours drive from Chateau d’Oex, there are 4 golf courses, at Saanenmoser, Villars, Lake Gruyere, and Aigle. The nearest, 20 minutes away, and arguably one of the most spectacular Alpine courses, is Golf Club Gstaad Saanenland, a stunning 18 hole course, (par 70, 5305 metres) at an altitude of 1400 metres, and is open from June to October, after the snow has receded. The driving range has a view to die for! In early summer the fairways weave between protected orchids in a nature reserve and alpine meadow flowers and pine woods. Golf de la Gruyere (par 68, 5058 metres) has views over the lake and to the mountains beyond. Montreux Golf Course at Aigle (par 72, 5828 metres), is flatter and easier on the legs. The green fees vary between £30 and £50, depending on the day you play.
Ski: Chateau d'Oex is part of the Glacier-Alpes Vaudoises Ski area and has direct access to 50km of downhill skiing with 22 individual pistes, served by 10 ski lifts.
Thanks to the Videmanette cable way, Rougemont has a direct connection to the ski area of Gstaad. In winter, the railway also brings winter sports enthusiasts to the nearby ski areas of Schönried and Saanenmöser. The high plateau of Les Mosses – La Lécherette is very popular with cross-country skiers. 35 km of trails lead through snow-covered fields and forests. Further activities and facilities include snow-shoe treks, toboggan runs and winter walking trails.
