About Helena Francis

We a small family living in the area for more 10 years now. We LOVE the valley, is a gorgeous place to visit and perfect for everyone. We have other apartment renting in the area and we manage a few more for other owners. We have long experience with tourist and we always try to help our guests enjoying the area as much as possible.

Helena Francis purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Helena Francis chose Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau

We recently got this house and we very happy here. The chalet is a ECO friendly made property called by the locals the 'Chalet Terra'. This apartment is what we called 'The retreat' because is located in a very quiet area away from the centre of the village, although is still at walking distance from everything. From the bedroom and living area we can see the main road from the village, the mountains and the water falls that surrounds us. We recently renovated the apartment and is now ready to welcome guests.

What makes this apartment unique

The best benefit of our apartment is by far the fact of it quietness and peaceful location.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Chalet Francis. Helena was a terrific host who provide clear directions and prompt responses to all our inquires both before and during our stay. The chalet is located on a hillside and has beautiful views of a waterfall and the mountains. The decor and furnishings were perfect and the apartment was immaculate with everything in working order. It shows just how much time and attention Helena puts into the property. The kitchen had everything we needed - there were even two different types of coffee pots. Additionally, we were supplied more than just the basics in terms of pantry items by our generous hosts. The location was perfect for walking into town or catching transportation to the mountain tops. The return trip from town is uphill but isn't enjoying a walk in the crisp mountain air part of the fun? I would definitely recommend Chalet Francis and I hope it is not too long before my husband and I are able to return.

Fantastic choice for Bernese Oberland region!

  • 5 of 5

I don't think we could have chosen a better place to stay in this region - especially in this price range! The apartment is so lovely and comfortable. It is very clean, well managed and quiet. We absolutely loved the views from the living room window as you can see straight into the Lauterbrunnen Valley and watch Staubach Falls. Helena and her family were so kind and most helpful. The station in less than a 10 minute walk as well as the Coop, bakery and bank. This land is magical and peaceful and we can't wait to return! Highly recommend enjoying this apartment - especially over a hotel!

Stupendous!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was excellent. Helena bent over backwards for us. She even made a call to set up paragliding for my wife. Lauterbrunnen Valley is one of the most beautiful places we've been. Helena's place was the icing on the cake!
