This is a beautiful, spacious apartment with high quality fittings and a very well equipped kitchen, including a Nespresso machine, a teapot, microwave and dishwasher. A sieve would have been a useful addition. Dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid were provided, also oil, salt & pepper, stock cubes and some spices in a drawer. There is a full length window with a door leading out to the balcony which is furnished to eat out or relax on (or dry the clothes) if you can tear your eyes away from the view which includes the north face of the Eiger. We enjoyed watching the train go up to Jungfraujoch and listening to the river and distant cow bells. The washing machine in the basement was easy to operate for 2CHF. The property manager, 'D' was most helpful and informative and gave us great advice about Grindelwald.
There were very few downsides to this accommodation but I would say we found the foam mattress on the double bed very hot to lie on as the mattress cover was rubberised. We would have been glad of a cotton or a wicking layer under the sheet. The apartment is up 3 flights of stairs with no elevator and the 6 minute walk to the train station and the Co-op supermarket is up a steep hill. We didn't find that an issue, but it might be for anyone with mobility, heart or breathing problems. At the very end of our stay, the adjoining apartment was occupied by people who smoked on their balcony, making it less pleasant to sit out on ours, but that was just unfortunate for us and no reflection on this excellent holiday property. We loved it and hope we can remember the view for a long time.
The apartment was everything we could have wanted for our stay in Switzerland. We were a family of 5, children 10 - 17yrs, visiting the area for the first time, wanting to have a fun, family holiday.
The location of the property made it very easy to walk to the train station, cable car, taking you up to Murren, and do a bit of food shopping at the local Coop. The local swimming pool is a 10 minute walk, and is definitely worth a visit.
We used the kitchen every night to cook and it had all we needed, as well as a kitchen table to all sit around. The boys enjoyed coming “home” in the evenings, after a busy day of hiking and activities, and watching the DVDs available in the apartment - some even in 3D!
Every window was like a picture and we felt we were definitely in the heart of the valley with the sounds of cow bells and waterfalls, and the views of the mountains.
Communication with Augustine and Celine was very good right from when we made our booking. We were met by Celine on arrival who was very welcoming and showed us around the property.
