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.
