Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Matten bei Interlaken - Swissdreams

380 year old newly renovated 76sqm Holiday House with amazing mountain views

***Please visit www.swissdreams.co.uk for more reviews***

A newly fully renovated 2 bedroom 380 year old farmhouse with views onto the famous Jungfrau mountain from all bedroom and living room windows.

It is situated in the quiet village of Matten on the outskirts of the main tourist resort of Interlaken.

The whole holiday house has central heating and is very well insulated to help keep warm in winter and cool in the summer.

The downstairs of the house is completely open plan containing a fully equiped modern kitchen adjacent to the large living/dining area.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms of very similar sizes both having a good size wardrobe and great views. Bedroom 2 has a roof gallery accessible via a sloped ladder.

Under the house is a large cellar to store bikes, skis or any other sport equipment.

About Tracy Jay

We are an English couple living here in the amazing town of Matten with our two young daughters 2 and 8 years old.

We look forward welcoming to our brand new holidays home and to make your holiday the best ever.

Tracy Jay purchased this house in 2003

Why Tracy Jay chose Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau

Perfectly situated extremely close to the main tourist resorts of Interlaken and Matten but in a very quite residential location.

What makes this house unique

Great views, Quiet with the ability to access the whole Bernese Oberland within meters of the front door

Guestbook comments from the owner

Super clean with modern facilities, but classic Swiss from the outside. Tracy & Tony were very friendly & helpful and even called from Switzerland to UK to offer advice. They live next door and so literally are able to answer any problems (not that we had any at all).

Interlaken is very convenient for traveling but is a relatively busy town. The house location however is peaceful & quiet with very little traffic. The bus stop is round the corner and less than a minute away. Bus stop to either main train stations less than 10 mins. Supermarket is 1 min walk away, which is very handy indeed as Switzerland is very expensive to eat out!

The only criticism was that the apartment was lacking a TV/DVD player but why watch TV in such a beautiful part of Switzerland! Very, very highly recommended!

Quiet, comfortable, up-to-date; great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here. It is in an ideal location to stay for a week and make day trips to the many scenic and historic attractions in the area. Tony and Tracy were very helpful with tips about the best attractions. Nearby Interlaken is too busy for our tastes, but this quiet place is within a five-minute walk of all the amenities (groceries, bus stop, restaurants, bakery, etc.). The farmhouse is all-new inside, is good for families, and even has a set of toys for small children. At first, I was a little nervous about wiring a deposit to reserve the place, but there were no issues. Tracy was very prompt in responding to my questions via e-mail, and she let me know right away when my wire transfer hit her bank account. Also, the photos and description accurately portray what the place is like.

Simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for six nights and enjoyed every moment. Very well designed and well equipped chalet. Excellent location, very near to bus stop, West and Ost train station and super market. Tony and Tracy were great great host. Always available for any questions or concerns. They also collected our luggage on our behalf ( Delayed from airline) late night as we were out exploring , which they could have avoided, so a BIG thank you.

Highly recommended.

Lovely Swiss Chalet

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, modern chalet, very clean and well cared for. Superbly located within easy walking distance of the town centre, the bus station and both east & west rail stations. Also a supermarket very nearby. There was a good stock of information on the local area to browse, but owners Tony & Tracy made our stay super easy with their recommendations on where best to go given that days weather. I’d highly recommend this chalet if you are visiting beautiful Interlaken.

Great venue and location

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend this venue. Easy to find. Easy to park. A few minutes walks to restaurants, pubs and shops and about a 10min walk into central Interlarken. The owners Tracy and Tony could not have been more helpful and there was nothing missing from the accommodation. You can either see the Mountains from the bedroom window!

Highly recomended

  • 5 of 5

We were really happy with our stay at the Swissdreams holiday house. We found the neighbourhood really charming, and very convenient, close to supermarket and interlaken centre. We used the appartment as our base for exploring the area, and found it ideal. We used the kitchen almost every day for cooking dinner as we had our 10 month old daugther with us, and hence found self-catering very convenient. The kitchen was well equipped and convenient. Tracy and Tony were great hosts and very helpfull with recomandations and information regardig trips/activities in the surrounding area. I highly recomend staying here if you are going to interlaken

Maravillosa casa y perfecta localizacion.

  • 5 of 5

Recomendable al 100% para todos aquellos que estén buscando alojamiento en la zona de Interlaken.

Esta situada en la localidad de Matten, que en definitiva es como un barrio más de Interlaken.Andando tardabamos unos 15-20 minutos al centro de Interlaken y mas o menos igual a las estaciones de tren tanto a Interlaken West como a Interlaken Ost.Con parada de autobus (104) muy cerca (Brunnen-Haus) que va a ambas estaciones.Y con un supermercado COOP a la vuelta de la esquina (08h-20h).Impresionanates vistas al Jungfrau.Zona muy tranquila y segura.

La casa es perfecta, con una amplia planta primera donde hay una cocina totalmente equipada y una gran zona de estar-comedor, donde habitualmente cenabamos y desayunabamos. Arriba hay una segunda planta donde estan el cuarto de baño y las habitaciones, una de matrimonio, y otra con una litera y una especie de buhardilla que tiene una cama mas.Todas con bonitas vistas a las montañas.Las fotos responden fielmente a la realidad.

La localidad es muy tranquila con algunas casas-granjas antiguas, todo muy pintoresco.Perfecto para tener como centro logistico para todas las excursiones a la zona (lagos Brienz y Thun, las montañas (Niederhorn, First, Jungfrau, etc...).

Los propietarios son una familia encantadora que vive justo al lado, y que siempre estaban disponibles por si necesitabamos algo.En definitiva un mas que merecido 5 estrellas, que a nuestra familia, y en especial a nuestros hijos nos hizo dsifrutar unas vacaciones de ensueño.Ojalá volvamos otra vez.Se nos quedaron muchas cosas por hacer y visitar.Sin duda elejiremos de nuevo nuestro "Swissdream".
