About Sue Gwilliam

We love Switzerland, especially this area. Having spent many family holidays in the Bernese Oberland, we moved here 12 years ago. We encourage others to enjoy this wonderful place and offer lots of tips to help you discover the best of the region. We are both 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 Mürren

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, 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 very quiet location and 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 suitable for up to 15 kg is available, with linen, towel and changing mat (for a small extra charge). The view from the garden, lounge and balcony is spectacular. Homely touches include books, CDs and DVDs, to encourage you to slow down and relax. A Breakfast Pack is available on request, 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.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been more pleased with our 5 night stay at Chalet Traumli. It was everything mentioned in the description and pictures and even more! Sue's husband, Nick, met us at the cable car to take us to the chalet which is short walk from the cable car station. He helped us with our bags too--quite the gentleman. After arriving at the apartment, he patiently reviewed everything there. No guesswork on our part. It's a beautifully designed, compact, and yet spacious apartment. No details are overlooked. Fluffy towels and bathrobes, modern kitchen with espresso machine, and excellent wi-fi. It's a totally peaceful location and a quick walk into town and the local Co-Op grocery store for supplies. We often ate our breakfast and dinner on the balcony as the views are the best we've ever seen. You can almost reach out and touch the mountains. Murren and Chalet Traumli were the centerpiece of our trip. It exceeded our expectations.

Perfect home base for an Alpine advemture

  • 5 of 5

Perched above the Lauterbrunnen valley, with panoramic views of the Schwarz Monch and Jungfrau, Sue and Nick’s apartment was wonderful, relaxing and perfectly outfitted. Sue was super responsive and the Wednesday hike to the Schithalp dairy with Nick is not to be missed. We can’t wait to return!!!!

The most amazing chalet in the most amazing place

  • 5 of 5

This chalet was amazing with gorgeous unobstructed views of the mountains right out the front window and balcony. The balcony has chairs and a small table to eat breakfast on while admiring the mountains. The chalet was clean and had all the essentials if not more with some welcoming thoughtful touches. Our host met us and guided us to the chalet which was off the main road in a more remote location. There is a lot of stairs to get to and from the chalet but it is totally worth it. You will be torn between exploring the outdoors or enjoying how nice the chalet is. Being in this chalet allows you to still enjoy the scenery while you are relaxing. It is in a great location close To hiking trails, the cable car up to the Schilthorn, and restaurants and Coop (food store). I am already planning our return trip!

Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We spent four days at Chalet Traumli in late August 2017. The cabin has a great view of the Alps from its balcony and plenty of natural light from two skylights in the kitchen/living area. Comfortable bed and nice bathroom with plenty of hot water. Sue welcomes you at the gondola station and is a great source of information for things to do in the area. I highly recommend it!

Hope to welcome you back one day, perhaps in winter for snow-shoeing or skiing. We love to see our guests relaxing here in peaceful, safe Murren. Come back soon!

Incredible apartment in spectacular location

  • 5 of 5

Our favourite stay during our 3 week Switzerland holiday ! Everything was great and kitchen was well equipped ( including expresso machine ) . Very clean and modern. Skylights really effective ! Lots of local information was provided . Communication with host was fine . Even though she was away , we were well looked after by her friend Ann Marie. Dinner on the deck was especially memorable. Co-op in town was convenient for groceries . Murren is a superb location as a base for exploring Jungfrau region especially if you enjoy peaceful , quiet evenings . Great hiking just out the door . I even did the tandem paragliding ! My wife and I both highly recommend Sue 's chalet and we would love to return !

Owner's Response: Great to read this was your favourite stay! The peaceful location is idyllic all year round. Enjoy breakfast on the balcony and dinner in the garden after a day exploring. Guests also enjoy free entry to the nearby pool, and spa. With the cable car just a few minutes a way, you have easy access to transport connections as well as hiking/ski trails, paragliding and a Via Ferrata with a 800 drop!

This place went beyond our expectations. Simply beautiful! Amazing views from the lovely apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place, and hope to come back again. The owners were so helpful and friendly, and the apartment so comfortable and well furnished. The view from the living room window is spectacular, with a panorama of snow capped peaks. It is located near some of the best hiking in the region. An unforgettable experience!!!

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.
