We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely chalet. The views of the mountains (they might be hills really but to us from the flat Norfolk countryside they look like mountains!) and the river were just lovely. We loved the wildlife, seeing herons, black and red kites, warblers, swallows etc. and even a stoat running into the next door garden.
What a wonderful week we had in this beautiful place with magnificent views over the river into Switzerland! Sitting outside having dinner with a view that would be difficult to beat in any restaurant.
Sonia and Gus are delightful hosts, accessible as they live on the other side of the property, but never intrusive. We enjoyed spending time with them and practising our French and they their English, which was great fun!
The bells rang out over the valley at 10.30 every morning, reminiscient of the 'Sound of Music', creating a wonderful ambiance. The properties location meant that we could pop across to Switzerland every day, so this was a great (and much less expensive) place from which to explore. Coming back to the apartment at night (except when we stayed at Grindlewald for one evening) was lovely and relaxing.
The apartment is clean, well equipped and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to any one! However the drive is a little steep so wouldn't suit older or infirm people in our opinion!
The local village is adequetly served by all basic ammenities including a well stocked super market complete with fuel station at reasonable prices. Check out the boulangerie/ cafe which we found charming.
All in all a great little apartment with stunning views!
