About Sue Gwilliam

I love Switzerland, especially this area. Having spent many family holidays in the Bernese Oberland, we moved here 9 years ago. I encourage others to enjoy this wonderful place and am delighted to have recently been asked to lead the Village Walking Tour in Murren. I am well travelled and understand how important it is to find the right holiday home.

Sue Gwilliam purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Sue Gwilliam chose Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau

Past guests have loved my apartment and found it to be good value for money. Murren is beautiful, unspoilt and car-free. It features in many published bucket lists e.g. 100 places to visit before you die! Chalet Traumli is in the typically Swiss wooden style in a quiet residential area of the village, overlooking a small pasture with panoramic views of the mountains. The apartment has been thoroughly renovated and modernised inside, and is light and spacious. Guests enjoy a well-equipped kitchen, perfect for preparing real food and a dining area to entertain friends. There is something about Traumli that makes you feel calm and restful, from the moment you arrive. There are 7 apartments in total in this building and our neighbours are Swiss and friendly.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a very clean and well-maintained apartment. The quiet location and its own garden, ensure a peaceful setting. Our apartment feels snug yet airy with lots of natural light in the lounge/kitchen/dining area. We have deliberately not squeezed in extra beds or bunk beds, as we wanted to offer our guests something a little more comfortable and spacious. A baby cot/playpen is available (extra charge). The view from the garden, lounge and balcony is spectacular. WiFi is included in the price. Homely touches include books, CDs and DVDs, to encourage you to slow down and relax. A Breakfast Pack is offered, allowing you to relax or dash out to the slopes on your first the morning.

Owner listens to your requests and does her best to ensure your holiday dreams and expectations are fulfilled.

Generally guests are met at the station by the owner and taken to the apartment.

The apartment was everything we wanted

  • 5 of 5

Sue was a pleasure to rent from. She was quick to respond to any questions during the rental process and was a pleasure to meet when we arrived.

The apartment was perfect for our needs as a family of 3. The kitchen had everything we needed. We had just arrived from the US and having the DVD player was great as we didn't make it out very late. Watching On Her Majesty's Secret Service is a must for anyone about to jump on the gondola to Schilthorn. Loved that it was there. One of the campiest Bond movies but a must before heading up.

Murren was an absolutely perfect town for us. Plenty of places to eat and the hiking in the area was unbelievable.

We will be back to Murren and would absolutely rent again from Sue.

Lovely place to be

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very clean and well prepared; the proprietress very friendly.

The place with its wooden furniture and walls is very cosy. Equipment: All you need is there!

In wintertimes the way to the apartment can be slippery because of the icy steps outside.

To let it Sunday till Sunday is a very good idea of the owner because on Saturdays there's a big rush hour around Mürren (in front of - and in the cable car, in the village as well as in the supermarket...)

Thanks a lot for that wonderful winter holiday!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. I'm pleased that you had a wonderful holiday in Chalet Traumli. Guests may arrive and depart any day at most times in the year, and we offer both Saturday and Sunday changeovers in peak season (New Year and February school holidays). Outside these peak times, guests are pleasantly surprised by the lack of queues especially at the ski lifts. After a warm start to the ski season, Murren has had loads of snow in recent weeks and every path is snow-covered. We're hoping for a great end of season with all this powder, hopefully right up to mid April this year.

clean, cozy, quiet flat

  • 5 of 5

clean, cozy, quiet flat with lots of very useful equipment, e.g. in the kitchen you'll find almost anything you need to prepare your meals.

very close to the cablecar in mürren

enough space, a big bedroom with a nice double bed. useful bathroom

nice people who rent the flat and also nice people who life in the same house.

the thing to improve would be a stable workbench to prepare your skis or snowboards (very specific).

Cozy and Well Appointed Apartment

  • 4 of 5

This apartment and it's owner are great! The apartment was very clean and well organized and you have a perfect view. We had everything we needed for our stay, even the ingredients for a homemade fondue! Our family's only hiccup was that we came to Murren to ski. So we had all our winter gear that had to be hauled down 3 switchbacks and 71 stairs and then 42 indoor stairs up. (My 10 year old counted). Which, being winter, were all completely iced over. It made for a rather dicey trip with luggage. That being said, the skiing was wonderful.

Owner's Response: Feedback is valuable to me, as is the opportunity to respond with some practical information and reassurance for future winter guests. Part of the charm of Murren is that it's a car-free village on a mountainside. Generally skiers leave their equipment in the ski storage lockers at the cable car station or with the rental shop - both near the top of the steps. When the snow is good, you may ski right to the edge of our garden. Our access steps are cleared daily but the fluctuations in temperature this winter has meant that sometimes they are icy - however there is a handrail and the path is lit. Certainly we expect them to be snow covered in winter as we're at high altitude. I always suggest that guests do not carry their ski boots up into the apartment (and then down again to use) but leave them on the designated shelves in the basement. Past guests on long trips have sometimes reorganised their bags and left some 'city' stuff in storage at the station. In winter I ask guests to try to arrive before 18:30 for their own comfort and convenience. If you're looking for an unspoilt, authentic alpine ski resort - Murren is the place. If you're looking for panoramic views and a peaceful setting away from the roads, then Chalet Traumli will be perfect for you. I try not to be too prescription with guidance, and there is lots of helpful information in my Hospitality Manager. I'm always available and happy to answer any pre-arrival questions too.

This idyllic, car-free mountain village has a charm you cannot help falling in love with. The Jungfrau range seems almost close enough to touch but still a long way off, as Mürren sits on a sunny terrace above the Lauterbrunnen Valley. A winter sports resort, with Sports Centre offering guests free access to large swimming pool with jacuzzi and ice rink (ice rink in winter season only), and a beautiful Wellness Centre. Perfect during the rest of the year too for hiking, spectacular waterfalls, exploring this stunning region by train, mountain biking and other adventure sports, or simply enjoy being at one with nature. Don't miss a trip to the top of the Schilthorn, including a visit to the 007 James Bond exhibition, the revolving restaurant and newly opened viewing platform. Home to the Inferno Triathlon (August) and the longest downhill ski race (January). Convenient base for the Lauberhorn Ski Races. Various other amateur snowboarding and ski events throughout the season. Great sledging! Take a day trip to Wengen or up to the top of the Jungfrau (ice palace) in any season - the highest point in the Alps reachable by train. During the summer, visit Trummelbach Falls, valley museum or hike to a local dairy for lunch.

Featured on the BBC as the launch place for base-jumpers and popular with paragliders (book your tandem trip in the village). Other summer adventure sports include the Via Ferrata, hanging 800m above the valley floor and ending with the Nepalese bridge (not for the faint-hearted). This is a stunning location for both relaxation and activities.
