Only 2 nights were available, and we took them. With assistance in planning the short visit from Adrian we were able to make the most of it from such a conveniently and well appointed apartment. Our US family left for the rest of the Swiss catch-up visit, very happy to have included the crown jewels!

Lots of nice additions, such as a wonderful book collection, dvd's etc. And the views - simply the best view in all of Lauterbrunnen. There are numerous other apartments in chalets in this community, but none have the front row seat of the alps, that this apartment has! The view is simply stunning. The apartment is within walking distance of the town of Lauterbrunnen, which is great, so you don't have to drive and fuss with parking. Such a great base to see the whole region. Most importantly, Diane Black is a wonderful host who took such great care of us. Highly recommend this apartment for anyone considering staying in the area.
