This is a home from home and has everything you might need for a stay. Most valued are the numerous balconies and terraces, particularly the one off the dining area that affords a perfect view across the Lauterbrunnen valley, to Tanzbödli and to Birg - a great spot to watch the sunsetting. The beautiful parquet flooring on the upper level is complimented by modern bathrooms and kitchen, and superb linen. The chalet is located in the centre of Mürren, a short distance from the Bahnhof (not far to wheel your case) and close to the Bakers and Coop. The great beauty of Mürren is that after the day trippers have departed you feel you have the village to yourself. It's a wonderful peaceful place, and a great staging base for walks.

The children enjoyed watching them mild the cows and helping out in the stables. The apartment is very comfortable and clean.
