BEAUTIFUL

5 of 5
Great location, easily accessible, restaurants 5 mins walk away, lake is about half hour walk (downhill). Beautiful views of the mountains. There is a large balcony long to the side of the property and half balcony at the front. You get views of the mountain behind the house, mountains over the lake and the other side views which on a clear day you can see the 'Eagles Nest'. 2 hob rings for cooking, it is on the first floor so you get all round view. Sebasitan and his new wife were absolutely lovely and very kind. The bathroom was absolutely spotless! Would not hesitate to stay again.

Modern luxurious apartment

5 of 5
What a lovely place. Spacious, warm, quiet and modern in a nice residential area. Fritz met us on our arrival and took time to show us around the apartment, explain how things worked like the door entry, the shutters, the appliances and the downstairs drying and boiler rooms. It is just a short walk to the gondola for skiing and also into the town. Would highly recommend the apartment and the owner.
