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!

Things to do on holiday in Bernese Oberland, Switzerland

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. As I am sure I have already mentioned, Bernese Oberland is a beautifully natural region, and it has been protected with the creation of many national parks and botanical gardens.

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.

A little piece of heaven

5 of 5
My Family & I, 2 adults & 2 children (5 & 9) spent a wonderful week in Lauterbrunnen, from Dec 28th 2016 until Jan 4th 2017. The apartment is warm & spacious. One double room & one twin room with plenty of storage for clothes. The bathroom was very modern, plenty of bath linen & a great powerful shower. The apartment has all the equipment you could need, washing machine, dryer, hair dryer, dishwasher. We had friends over for dinner one afternoon & there was plenty of crockery to cater for us all. When you needed some downtime the board games & dvd's kept the kids entertained & there are plenty of tv channels to choose from. Harry had sent me lots of helpful information before we left & he had very patiently & kindly answered all my questions over email. There is lady that meets you & welcomes you called Tina. She was amazingly helpful to us, from texting us to advise us about fireworks that the kids might enjoy to helping us find a chemist on a Sunday. She was an angel & so nice to have someone close by. The location of the apartment is just perfect. You are so close to everything. The camping site is right behind the apartment a 2 minute walk away & there you can find a little shop & a great bar & restaurant. The bus stop to bring you into the village or to the train station stops right outside the apartment & runs regularly & is super reliable. You can walk into the village in 5-10 minutes, where you will find an Irish pub, lots of restaurants & a couple of coffee shops/bakeries. We went to Airtime a couple of times, the brownies were nice but the reception was less than warm & friendly, bordering on rude to be honest. We were beginners at skiing but there is a huge choice of places to go and all easily accessible from the apartment. And lastly I could not talk about this apartment without mentioning the views!! Hence the title, a little piece of heaven. Looking out the back doors of the apartment you are looking at the mountains, I could have sat & stared all day. There's a big green area for the kids to play on & it's nice & safe away from the road. There were some animals opposite the house so our kids loved looking at those. I can't recommend this apartment highly enough & I look forward to visiting again. We went in Winter but it's a place you could visit in both Summer & Winter. Enjoy! Hilary

This is just the most beautiful chalet centrally located in the village. The furnishings, décor and facilities are of a very high standard, the chalet is warm and very comfortable and has everything you could ever need, it is just an amazing place to stay we have had the most wonderful week in beautiful Murren and hope to come back again very soon.
