This apartment is located on the north end of Lauterbrunnen next to a stream and open field. It is clean and comfortable with all you need for an extended stay. The main part of town and train station is within easy walking distance. The patio was so pleasant with the views and sounds of streams, waterfalls and the bells of grazing cattle that we ate a relaxing dinner at the apartment several times. The local church is very close and they love ringing the bells several times during the hour - and during the night as well so be prepared for some Swiss village character with your sleep. We had a bit of trouble hooking up with the property manager but the set up for getting into the apartment and the information for staying there was well done and thus did not cause much of a problem. We checked in and out of the apartment with no contact. We also had a bit of a problem with the WIFI but were able to get ti resolved. One other comment, eating in Lauterbrunnen can be a bit of a challenge if you decide to just go out and have a meal. We were there as the main season was ending and restaurants wee cutting back and filled up quickly. We planned ahead and made reservations for dinner or bought our own meal fixings from the local stores.
The property is on the edge of Interlaken but only about 20 minutes pleasant walk over the bridge and along the path beside the river which leads to both the boat station and the railway. It is quite delightful to be able to sit out in the garden and watch the boats and breathin the views. The apartment is ideal for a couple and at a pinch upto to children. There is adequate facilities for cooking and barbequing with a large coop and a small late opening coop store at the railway station. Switzerland is not the cheapest place but the travel passes do make for huge savings and are well worth the money.
We found the apartment both compact and very pleasant with the use of free bicycles stored below the main area. This is an ideal place to stay for a holiday that can lead to many visits to other destinations, both far and near.
We had a fantastic time and would recommend this as a great place to stay.
