Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Lauterbrunnen - Luterbach

Amazing summer hiking/winter skiing apartment in stunning waterfall valley

We look forward to hosting you in our new luxury ground floor apartment. French doors open up to the patio and garden, with a small stream only footsteps away.

A two minute walk brings you to the (ski) bus stop, ten minutes to the village. Lauterbrunnen is the departure point to the most spectacular railways in Europe and and beautiful alpine hikes.

The Jungfrau region has around 500 kilometres of hiking trails of varying lengths and difficulty with fantastic opportunities to spot wildlife such as ibex and chamois or various alpine birds. Lauterbrunnen is the departure point for the most spectacular mountain cog railways and cable cars in Europe. The mountain restaurants are open throughout the year offering breathtaking views. Cycle routes vary from gentle along the valley floor to steep mountain passes or proper downhill tracks. Bicycles are easily rented in the village and are allowed on most mountain trains. The lakes have lidos and beaches all along the shores and there is a heated open air swimming pool in the village. For those who want more adrenalin, white water rafting, canoeing, mountaineering, paragliding, hang gliding, bungy jumping and skydiving are all available in the surrounding area.

Winter season: Winter in Lauterbrunnen is ideal for skiers and non-skiers alike: There are 213km of pistes for skiers and snowboarders and 45 chair lifts, cable cars and trains to choose from in the Jungfrau region. Lauterbrunnen is nestled in the valley between the ski resorts of Mürren and Wengen and offers easy and fast access to both areas. You can follow the tracks of famous skiers on the Lauberhorn run, the world’s longest downhill race track, or, snow permitting, ski all 16km down from the top of the Schilthorn to the village of Lauterbrunnen. A cross country trail skirts the apartment. For non skiers there are more than 100km of winter hiking trails, 5okm of sledding trails and a couple of snowshoe trails.

Apart from our unusual names, we are bound by a love of this area and the outdoors. We met in Interlaken in 2004.

About D: A true Irishman although I have been in this area for over ten years. My love of snow brought me here, but with time I have come to appreciate the summers more and more. I am a qualified rafting and canyoning guide and work mostly in rope access.

About Kashi: My passport is Belgian and although I was born there, I have spent most of my life abroad. My parents instilled me with an unquenchable lust for travel and adventure. Since growing up in Nepal, I have lived and worked in the outdoors in Spain, Mexico, Nepal, Italy and Austria but decided to settle in this beautiful area. The last six years I have been employed as a photographer, hiking and snowshoeing guide, ski instructor, tour guide and event planner. Currently I am mostly a mom, the toughest and most rewarding job ever!

About Keanu: Born in Interlaken in 2008, I am a Swiss-born Belgian Paddy. I share my parents' love for water and I really like the Octonauts, diggers and my wolf Igor. I go crazy for cheddar cheese, and love to talk on skype.

About Kiran: Born in April 2010, I am the latest addition to the family. I'm a happy kid, I refuse to acknowledge that I'm the youngest and I love all animals

We are enamored with this area and there is not a day that goes by that we do not think we are the luckiest people to be able to live here.

Diarmuid Conaty purchased this apartment in 2009

Chosen for it's unique location; perfect for summer activities and nestled between fabulous ski resorts, we decorated the apartment just like we would like to find a holiday home. The kitchen is very well equipped (we love to cook and eat well) and we have all the accessories you may want for small children. It's well connected via public transport but in a quiet area. It's a perfect starting point for all your Swiss adventures!

KOMFORTABLE FERIENWOHNUNG IN RUHIGER LAGE

  • 4 out of 5
Bei unserer Ankunft fanden wir eine komfortable Ferienwohnung vor die der Beschreibung entsprach. Die Ferienwohnung liegt ruhig in einer Ferienhaussiedlung mit guter Nahverkehrsanbindung. Mit Skischuhen lässt sich die Haltestelle in 2 Minuten erreichen.
Die Einrichtung ist gemütlich und lädt zum Faulenzen nach einem langen Skitag ein. Die Ausstattung mit Geräten in der Küche und zum Entertainment ist üppig und WLAN ist selbstverständlich. Sauberkeit und Ordnung lassen keine Wünsche offen. D. kümmerte sich vorbildlich um unser Wohlergehen und bereits vor der Anreise erhielten wir viele Tipps zum Skifahren und den örtlichen Gegebenheiten.
Wir würden die Wohnung jederzeit wieder buchen oder unseren Freunden empfehlen.

The appartment is really nice. Everything is good condition. A perfect kitchen with a very easy to handle pot for cheese fondue. The bathroom is large and has everything you need. We were here now for the secend time. The bus to the ski resorts start 50m away from the appartment. Just perfect !

The owners are very very friendly.

GREAT APARTMENT , FANTASTIC LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay in this apartment was great, it was really clean and the location was perfect. We loved the setting and it was very peaceful.. The owners were extremely lovely to deal with and the description of their apartment was accurate. The apartment was well set up and included tracking sticks that were fantastic to use on the mountain walks plus everything else you could possibly think of.

We spent 8 days here and there was just so much to see and do I wish we had booked for longer. The scenery from the apartment is picturesque and the beautiful stream and river just added to the appeal of the place. We bought a 5 day Jungfrau pass and used the train, cable cars and the boats in Interlaken. There are so many opportunities to walk beautiful tracks in the mountains plus flat paths near the village. We visited a couple of the restaurants and cafe's that Cassia and D recommended in there guest booklet and they were all really good. We would definitely recommend this property and hope we will be able to visit again. Banff Family Qld Australia

WE WILL DEFINITELY COME BACK

  • 5 out of 5
We spend a wonderful week in this chalet this August. We were 2 parents and 3 kids (13, 9, and 3). It was perfect in every way - size, shape and location, exactly as you can see in the official site. All the pictures are magically true to life - the falls and the rivers and the green and the mountains. One fall and one little river are practically on the porch!
Cassia, the owner, was friendly and charming.
I really don't have anything bad to say.
We will definitely come back again - next time for 2 weeks!

LUXORY APARTMENT IN PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
We recently spent a week in the accommodation on the outskirts of Lauterbrunnen (10 min walk to the train station).

The apartment is in a beautiful location with great views down the valley to snowcapped peaks and waterfalls. The apartment is fitted out to a very high standard, with all the little extras (cooking spices, washing powder, dishwasher tablets etc etc), provided to make the stay so very easy and enjoyable.

Eating out in Switzerland is very expensive, so having a fully fitted kitchen with lots of crockery and utensils etc enabled us to cook great food at an affordable price. There is a well-stocked supermarket in Lauterbrunnen open 7 days a week.

Booking was very easy, lots of pre-arrival information was provided upfront, and Cascia and D were available to help with local advice on passes, sightseeing etc.

Overall, the apartment had a real luxurious feel about it, and was in a very peaceful and quiet location. We would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend it to friends.

Lauterbrunnen is probably the most impressive glaciated valley in the Alps, inspiring people such as Goethe and Tolkien. No less than 72 waterfalls cascade down the mountains. The village centre is a mere 10 min. stroll along the river, where you may find restaurants and shops, banks and the tourist office. Across the street there is a small convenience store. Lauterbrunnen is a perfect base for your adventures: spectacular mountain railways and cable cars whisk you past Wengen, famous for the Lauberhorn ski race, on to Kleine Scheidegg with breathtaking views of the Eiger, the Mönch and the Jungfrau and on to the Jungfraujoch, the highest train station in Europe. Across the valley, Mürren awaits you with even more dramatic views, and 2 cable cars further you reach Schilthorn with its revolving restaurant. The area has hundreds of miles of summer hiking trails and endless skiing options, with a cross country piste skirting the apartment. All airports connect easily by rail.

Other Activities: Canyoning
