Make a holiday rental house, villa or chalet in Bernese Oberland, Switzerland your home away from home

Bernese Oberland is an unbelievably beautiful region of Switzerland, where snow capped peaks, lush green valleys and the crisp, clear air will make you fall in love with the region before you even reach the front door of your Bernese Oberland chalet. It is impossible to describe the staggering beauty of Bernese Oberland in words, but the reaction of holiday makers when they first arrive says it all!

Bernese Oberland, Switzerland is a walking paradise. The pure natural beauty of the area and the limitless trails through deep forests, stunning glaciers and along the beautiful shores of Lake Thun mean walking holidays to Bernese Oberland are never forgotten.

Aside from offering the finest walking to be found probably anywhere in Europe, Bernese Oberland offers windsurfing, sailing and scuba diving in the crystal clear, crisp waters of Lake Thun. Of course, there is no shortage of challenging terrain for mountain climbers, rock climbers, mountaineers, horse riding and golfers. Taking a Bernese Oberland chalet is also a great idea for those looking to get their adrenaline flowing. Zorbing, wake boarding, bungee jumping and ice climbing are prevalent in the area too.

Places to holiday in Bernese Oberland, Switzerland

Ideally situated in the centre of the region, Interlaken sits between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, which makes it a perfect place to explore the region on foot. The triple peaks of Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau are no distance from Interlaken, and can be explored by walking, hiking or for the extremely fit, mountain biking. The unrivalled views from the numerous viewpoints on Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau are not only accessible to those who love to walk, as there is a cable car which climbs into the mountains, although a head for heights is essential!

There are a great number of beautiful, traditional Swiss villages in the region, which all act as magnificent centres for hiking and walking in the summer and skiing in the winter. The network of cable cars originating from Grindelwald leads to a range of short, long and multi-day walks throughout Switzerland, many of which are still suitable to enjoy during the winter.

Brienzersee is a great base for walking in Bernese Oberland. Holiday accommodation by the lake side in Brienzersee is nothing less than idyllic, and a great option when you first arrive at your Bernese Oberland chalet here is to take a trip on the paddle streamer which majestically crosses the Lake.

Weather in Bernese Oberland, Switzerland

Switzerland’s long, warm summers are ideal for walking in Bernese Oberland, soaking in the atmosphere and scenery, as average temperatures reach 25˚C, cool enough to leave the highest peaks with a dusting of snow, but warm enough to make the turquoise waters of Lake Thun pleasantly refreshing. Winters are of course cold, as the skiing, especially off-piste comes the main attraction drawing visitors to the self catering chalets of Bernese Oberland.

Travel to Bernese Oberland, Switzerland

The highest train station in Europe, Jungfraujoch, connects the Bernese Oberland to both Zurich (ZRH) and Geneva Airports (GVA). Cheap flights are available on a regular basis to both of these airports. Berne Belp (BRN) is the closest airport to the self catering accommodation in Bernese Oberland, but cheap flights direct from the UK to Berne are slightly harder to find.

Firstly, Sue is great at returning email queries both prior to our holiday and while we were there. We had a query about the DVD player and Sue returned replied within 3 hours! It is definitely as good as the photos if not better. It is well appointed. Immaculate in every respect. In fact it was like stepping into a brand new property. You can wake up with the sound and sight of the Staubach Falls, although the sound of the falls won't trouble you if you are a light sleeper. On our first morning there was a rainbow in the falls. The beds are really comfortable. I suffer from a bad back and had no trouble sleeping at all. We had two children who did not want to share a room and there is ample room in the sitting/living area for someone to sleep. There are lovely mattress toppers and christy pillows. Our daughter has asked us to buy her a pillow just like the one she had on holiday. We had all the things we needed in the kitchen and there is plenty of cutlery and crockery so you are not having to wash up or empty the dishwasher all the time. All the appliances are in perfect working order. There is even a Miele washer and dryer in the bathroom. The furnishings are lovely-I would be happy to have either leather sofa in my home. It really is a delight to wake up and sit on the patio overlooking the mountains. The bus can be caught just a few yards across the road and they go back and forth every half hour. The walk into town is a twenty minutes, but a very enjoyable stroll it takes you longer because you keep stopping to take photos. Lauterbrunnen itself is a great place as a base for travel to Jungfraujoch or even onto to see the Reichenbach falls. Trains take less than half an hour into Interlaken. If we return to Bernese Oberland we would not bother looking for another place to stay as we can't think of anything that could be better. It is the icing on the cake to have such fabulous care and service from Sue as well. Just perfect!!

The apartment is very spacious and very nicely finished with good facilities. The climb up the stairs to the top floor apartment is rewarded with the most spectacular views in all directions. The balcony gets good sunlight all day and we spent hours, day & night, taking it all in & enjoying the views. When feeling more energetic, Grindelwald village is just a short (uphill) walk away, with the train station being one of the first things you come to. We had driven to the apartment and did not use the car once while there. The weather was very good with temps in the mid 20s on several days. With it being not quite high season the villages & transport were not too busy & reservations for restaurants not needed. We will go back to Grindelwald again and cannot imagine staying anywhere other than this apartment when we do.
