About Juliet Fowles

I am from the UK and fell in love with Interlaken on my first visit in 2001. I now live here permanently with my son Charles.

I hope to make your first stay in Interlaken as special as mine was, or your returning visit one to remember.

Juliet Fowles purchased this apartment in 2013

What makes this apartment unique

The Boat house is a ground level apartment located directly on the banks of the beautiful river Aare allowing swimming and kayaking from your doorstep. A tranquil location.

Paragliding, Skydiving, Hiking, Hang gliding, Canyon Jumping, sledding, snowshoeing, skiing and snowboarding are activities available during the winter.

For the less adventurous and families there heaps of famous train journeys, boat rides on either Lake Thun or Lake Brienz and lots of day that include amazing playing parks. There are children friendly hiking routes, with bbq spots on the way.

The 1st of August is National Swiss Day. The day has continuous events, parades and is capped of with one off with a brilliant fireworks at 10pm followed by live bands.

Basically Interlaken has so much to do, I am still working my through the list. The safety, simple style of life and beauty of the place is why I feel lucky to live here. I truly cannot recommend it enough.

Incredible location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 nights in Seegartli Riverside Apartment in October and had a brilliant time. We had high expectations from the pictures and reviews, but it still blew us away. The apartment itself is ideal for 2 people - small but with all the facilities you need. The real treat is the location, which is stunning, with amazing views at all times of day.

Parking was easy, as was access. It's a 10-15 minute walk along the river to Interlaken which is great for a wander around and to watch the paragliders landing. We took day tips up to Harder Kulm, First (from Grindelwald), Trummelbach, Aare Gore and Reichenbach Falls. All great trips and my recommendation would be that, where there is an option to take a funicular or cable car up to a point but walk back down, enjoy the walk. There's so much to see.

If you're considering a trip to this area, I'd very much recommend this property as a brilliant base.

View can't be beat

  • 5 of 5

We ended up eating in almost every night because the view and outside ambiance could not be beat. We also enjoyed reading and writing on the couch by the window. The location is perfect. Close enough to town for a quick bike ride or walk into town, but very quiet and peaceful. We arrived during a heat wave, and the apartment got quite hot, but Juliette had a large fan to us the next morning. She also went out of her way to help me when I lost my wallet.

One issue I had was the low doorways. I am 6 feet tall, and I had to duck a bit so I wouldn't hit my head. I taped a couple pieces of dangling paper to remind me to duck, and that worked well. Overall a great stay.

The very best thing about this place is the view, the private garden, and all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

What is there not to love when waiting for you is a nice bottle of wine and a gorgeous private little area to sip it in? Every day, we could sit on the couch and see the emerald water of the Aare, breathe the mountain air, see the cows across the river, and hear the train go by.

There are several hikes that can be taken from there. A nice hike to Burgseeli to warm up the legs. Looong hikes on the river in all directions. Twenty minute walk to the East train station ( Interlaken Ost).

We picked up wine and groceries at the Coop near the station. Delightful!!! Took the bus to Beatenburg for a nice hike with 180 degree views of the mountains. One of us paraglided too and we are in our sixties.

Juliet is extremely responsive. Oh, the hairdryer is in the bottom drawer of the bedside table.

What a delight ... Interlaken's hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property was perfect for us ... A short walk by the river takes you right into Inerlaken ... The suite was clean and picturesque and Juliette was awesome in communicating everything we needed to know to find the property and enjoy our stay.

Lovely place ... Great location
