'.....they looked down on the Staubach Falls and the Lauterbrunnen Valley in all its glory' - John le Carré, (Our Kind of Traitor)
A stylish apartment with stunning views of the spectacular Lauterbrunnen Valley that are genuinely unsurpassed. Located next to open pasture, on the outside edge of a small modern chalet development, wide french doors open out onto a large sunny terrace, great for outside dining and barbecuing, but even better for just sitting and gazing at one of the world’s most dramatic valleys. The Staubach Falls are over to one side and alpine meadows straight ahead, the views of which are unobstructed by any other buildings. In winter a cross country ski trail skirts through the grounds. Unsurprisingly, the area beyond is a UNESCO world heritage site. (As for the inside of the property, see 'More Details' below).
Inside is a large lounge and dining area, with comfortable oak and leather furniture and cosy underfloor heating. A luxury well equipped kitchen includes granite surfaces, dishwasher and microwave. Bathroom and bedrooms are to an equally high standard. A large double bedroom, with solid oak furniture, has ample room for a cot, if needed. The second bedroom, with full size bunk beds and a single bed provides flexibility for families or groups of friends. The level access throughout the property is often appreciated by both older people and those with young children.
Other features include free and unlimited WiFi internet, international cable TV, DVD, iPod dock, washing machine and drier, ski room and private garage. The price also includes all Tourist taxes, end of stay cleaning, all linen, heating and taxed rubbish/garbage collection, (ie there are no extra costs).
The property is situated well away from the traffic on the main road, but still only two minutes from the Post Bus which runs regularly along the valley (free Ski Bus in winter).
A well stocked local store is only a short distance across the river, but a full range of shops can be found in the village, ten minutes walk away.
As well as the trains to Interlaken, cable cars link to the international ski areas of Murren and Wengen, including the famous Eiger Northface cog railway to the Jungfraujoch. Further afield the excellent train and Post Bus service makes a car unnecessary.
Tennis courts are 200m back towards the village, used for ice skating in winter. (More information on skiing and summer activities can be found below). The Trummelbach Falls are an easy 20 minute walk, one of 72 waterfalls which tumble into the Lauterbrunnen Valley. In summary, the location is truly glorious.

During your stay our local manager, who has lived nearby in the valley for over 25 years, is also available to deal with any problems.)
