Why Helena Francis chose Lauterbrunnen
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

Little Gem In The Gorgeous Valley in Swiss Style
My mom and I stayed at Helena's place for one week. It was the best decision we made to chose Helena's house. It is located in a spot where you have gorgeous views from the window...When you wake up all you see is the beautiful mountains. Everything was terrific from check in to check out. Helena and her husband were very helpful in their recommendations regarding what to see around. They also left us a little surprise before we arrived -- a bottle of Portuguese wine and cookies which was delicious. The house itself was spotless, well designed and warm. The kitchen is well equipped so you can easily cook. I would highly recommend to stay at Chalet Francis -- you will have an unbelievable stay!!!
Very homely, warm and clean
We loved our stay at this chalet and would definitely return. It was just the right size for a family of 4, with the kids enjoying the comfort of the large living room sofa bed (and TV!) whilst we retired to the lovely warm separate bedroom. The log stove in the hallway was a particular welcome sight at the end of a day out in the snow. Lovely large bathroom with luxurious rainfall walk-in shower (the kids loved this too!). Helena made all the difference by making us feel so welcome and extending her help in any way possible. Overall, it was the perfect location and setting for a true Swiss holiday experience. Thank you Helena & family :-) x
Amazing Home, Amazing Location & an Amazing Host
We stayed here for 3 days and it was a perfect home away from home. We reached late at night and were welcomed with delicious wine and cookies. Since we were reaching late during a cold night, Helena was thoughtful to turn the heater on before we got there. The house was spotless clean and was equipped with every small necessity. The room has a spectacular view of the Lauterbrunnen valley. The house is conveniently located about 7 mins walk from the Lauterbrunnen station.
Helena was very helpful right from the start and answered all our queries even before we booked the stay. Once there, she gave us tips on what would be the best places for us to see, transport and food.
Initially in a dilemma whether to stay in Wengen/ Murren or Lauterbrunnen, we realised that staying in Lauterbrunnen was the best decision(kind of the center to everything).
This was the most luxurious stay in the most heavenly place. Can't wait to visit it again. Would highly recommend the apartment to anyone visiting Berner Oberland area.
Superb Swiss Chalet
After many years of holidays in the Lauterbrunnen Valley we have finally found the perfect accommodation. This traditional Swiss chalet really felt like a home from home. It is warm and cosy with its own log burner and an ample supply of logs. Outside it has it's own parking space and lovely seating area with extensive views of snow covered mountains. There is direct access onto footpaths into Lauterbrunnen and up to Wengen.
Helena is just lovely, nothing is too much trouble and the personal touches in the chalet constantly surprised and delighted us. She clearly takes immense pride in wanting your stay to be as perfect as possible. She even went to the trouble of lighting the log burner 15mins before our arrival, what a nice surprise!
We cannot praise highly enough the Lauterbrunnen Valley , the chalet or Helena and cannot wait to return in 2018.
Helena and Family were very welcoming and helpful. The apartment is top notch, with stunning views right from the front door. Very clean and nicely furnished (my wife even went to ikea after this trip to pick up some things she liked in the apartment!). We would strongly recommend to anyone wishing to explore this area of Switzerland. Get a Jungfrau pass to maximize usage of trains and lifts up the mountains (some of these were not 100% covered in the general swiss travel pass).
Excellent, would highly recommend.
I cannot say enough great things about this wonderful chalet. Three of us stayed for a week and everything was perfect. A great starting point to many of the great hikes in the area and close enough to town to run to the shops. The bedroom was extremely comfortable and the queen size pull-out was not a regular pull-out, it was very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need. The location is picturesque and very, very quiet. Helena and her family are so welcoming and absolutely wonderful.
Lauterbrunnen is a magic valley, is a all year around place for holidays for everyone, from all different ages!
