                                                                                    My wife and I stayed for a week in this lovely, immaculate apartment. Paul greeted us in person and communication before our stay was excellent. We were given a guest card which gave you as much as 20% discount on various activities including the cable cars in Stoos. The apartment has everything required for a comfortable stay including a very well equipped kitchen. The bed was very comfortable with a huge velux window above your head. Lying there looking at the stars ( and one evening an amazing lightening storm) was truly magical. Morschach has several restaurants but is relatively small, although of course just a a couple of minutes walk away is the Swiss Holiday Park where there are many facilities to choose from including swimming pool,spas, mini golf etc. Brunnen which is considerably larger, is only 5 minutes away by car or about a 20 minute walk down ( at least 40 min on way up!). In Brunnen you can get the boat which can take you to various locations on Lake Lucern. We took the boat to Lucern, about 1hour 30 minutesaway, and returned by train. This was a great experience not to be missed. Lucern is a beautiful city and with the usual super efficient Swiss transport system, easy to get to. If you are reasonably fit you should definitely take the bus or your car to the base of the Stoos cable car ( only about 5 -10 mins away.) From there take cable car to Stoos, walk through village to the chairlift which takes you to the mountain Klingenstock. From there walk along a fantastic ridge ( not difficult) with breathtaking views of the surrounding Alps and in particular, as you near the end of the ridge walk at Fronalpstock, stunning views down to Lake Lucern. You then take the chairlift back down to Stoos for the return by Cable car to the car park. There are so many places to visit that one week is hardly enough time. There are many lakes in the area and many have cycle paths or at least fairly quiet roads surrounding them. In short this is a lovely part of Switzerland and staying at this apartment with its fantastic views from the balcony made our stay a truly memorable experience ,

I was more impressed with the amenities provided by the owner. She had taken care of every small bit that a visitor might require during the stay like traveler charger, hiking sticks, umbrella etc. They have amazing books and game collections. My daughter loved all the games. we really really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. the only downside is about 20 minutes walk from bus station. I definitely recommend this apt for lovely stay overlooking Luzerne Lake. Thanks.

Tell pass is a must and dont forget to get your Family card so Kids travel for free. Mount Pilatus excellent, but use cable car, queues for vehicular railway horrendous!! Great city and lots to do
