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.

She show us details direction to her place and helpful to answer my enquiry regards the transportation in Switzerland before I reach Switzerland. The accommodation itself is AMAZING! It is clean and equipped with everything we need (ensuite bathroom, kitchen and AWESOME view facing the Eiger). It's great to wake up with the amazing view everyday! I even extend one day extra stay in the accommodation :). Initially, we did not took Ruth's advice to take bus to her accommodation instead we go by foot with our luggages! A good experience but It's really exhausted to walk by foots! Please go by bus as it only took roughly 10 minutes to reach the accommodation. Ruth will provide a pass for free ride of bus in Grindelwald, no need worry bout spend extra in the transportation :). I do really enjoy my stay in here! Will visiting again in the future!

Tracy and Tony are a lovely couple, helpful and welcoming, we were so pleased that we chose this property. Kitchen has everything that you would expect in your own second home, we cooked almost everyday and never missed anything. Living room has a TV and lots of DVDs which kids loved (specially Big Barn Farm and Lazy Town). Both the bedrooms are good size and all the beds have very comfortable mattresses. Swissdreams is situated in beautiful quiet location, just few minutes walk from restaurants, bars and a supermarket (which was open from 8am to 8pm). Bus stops are couple of minutes walk away. If you don't mind walking further Interlaken Ost/ West and Wilderwill stations are just 10-15 mins of walk. We would highly recommend the property, we had a super time and look forward to returning in the not too distant future.

She communicated well both before and during the stay and spoke great English. The house is modern and has everything you could need for your stay. The kitchen even has a cake tin and hand mixer so we made cake. The children loved the Tractors outside that they could ride around on and homemade road signs which were such a hit we have had to make some ourselves when we got back home. The house is in a small quiet village but close enough that you can get to lots of places if you have a car. We went to the Trift bridge, the Gelmerbahn, St Beatus Caves, lucerne, Mount Titlis, Bern and the Aare gorge all within an or or just over. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
