It was so spacious and welcoming, and the views from every room were absolutely stunning. The biggest ‘wow’ factor was the gigantic private terrace! We could have invited the entire village up for drinks, lol. We loved having breakfast every morning and dinner every night on the terrace, with the most magnificent views of the village and mountains all around us. And at sunset, we’d enjoy the views of the church all lit up over a glass of wine. We felt like we had the entire Résidence Rosat to ourselves! The tranquility and beauty of your place is out of a fairy tale. You are very lucky to own a piece of Heaven :-) Angelo and Patrick were extremely helpful and responsive. It was reassuring to know that they were there if we ever needed assistance with anything. Your apartment is in the perfect location for exploring the area, and there are so many incredible activities, especially for families. We were able to go to La Braye one day, Wispile and Gstaad, Schönreid and Rellerli (the toboggan run is a blast!), Gruyères, and Broc for the Maison Cailler chocolate factory (where I ate WAY too much chocolate, lol). We also loved just staying at 'home', and exploring the charming village of Château d'Œx (we went mini-golfing, played at the park, and also made the short walk to Le Berceau outdoor swimming pool – a must if you have kids!). We had the most incredible experiences - and over 5,000 photos filled with memories we will always cherish. Once we get a bit more organized here, we will send you some photos of our stay (don't worry, we'll narrow it down to just a handful, lol). Thank you again for sharing your beautiful second home with us. We had the most incredible, magical vacation, and will most definitely be back soon!
