The Biderbost family were extraordinarily welcoming, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to communicate with. In addition, the apartment was extremely clean, well equipped, cozy, and perfectly located to enjoy the nearby outdoor activities available. We were fortunate to be able to enjoy many days of fantastic skiing at the Aletsch Arena and leisurely walks in the snow with our dog. In addition, the property offered an indoor wood burning stove and the most spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. The property is perfect whether your looking for a winter, spring, summer, or fall getaway. The experience absolutely exceeded our expectations and are surely looking forward to future stays!
