Lovely apartment, great facilities and beautiful setting.

5 of 5
I had a great stay at the chalet with my husband and 2 boys. Set on the slopes of Jaun, the view from the balcony was stunning and made breakfast or dinner special. Good facilities, everything we needed, photos were exactly as it was in real life with a really lovely spacious living area. Great base for accessing the hiking and walks in the surrounding mountains straight from the door.
