Lovely apartment with stunning views

5 of 5
We had a great time at this clean, spacious apartment. The views from the balcony are stunning and we had many memorable meals sitting out in the Valais sunshine. The building is a short walk to the cable car to Tracouet which is the start of many lovely walks. The owner answered queries promptly and helpfully. A great area and a great apartment. Many thanks, Karen, for your hospitality.

Great location and super accommodation

5 of 5
All went really well thank you. A couple of trees being cut down would improve the view of the Matterhorn from the balcony!! and a subscription to Netflix (or similar) would have been helpful during the thunderstorms! Other than these very minor wishes we had a super time thank you, would recommend the apartment whole-heartedly and would like to return one day.
