In Goldiwil (Thun) - Swiss new chalet (2014) with magnificent mountain views

Bedrooms 2
Space 538 sq. ft.
Property type chalet
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

In 2014 we have built a traditional Swiss chalet in Goldiwil, with wonderful views of the Bernese Alps. Only 5 km from the town of Thun, in a quiet village, this chalet is located 1000 meters above sea level. It is a suitable location for walks in the area and in the surrounding mountains. This text is originally written in Dutch and automatically converted into other languages, so apologies for the errors.

We live on the top two floors of the chalet and have on the bottom floor a holiday home, called "Im Bergli" with private entrance and terrace, which can be a good home base during a wonderful holiday or a working visit in Switzerland. The house is fully equipped. There is a double bedroom and a small bedroom for 1 adult or up to two children. An open kitchen in a living room with a sitting area and a dining area with beautiful views of the mountains. Directly in front of the dining room you have a private, partially covered terrace and you also have your own parking space in front of the chalet. Also check imbergli, followed by point and then ch for more information.

A Beautiful Apartment in a Beautiful Locatiion

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and cozy apartment in an absolute stunning and quiet location. The apartment is the first floor of multilevel home built into the hillside just a couple of years ago. Everything is new and has been kept in great condition. My wife and I felt instantly comfortable and at home.

The apartment has two bedrooms, a combination kitchen, dining and living room plus a separate bath with an absolutely wonderful shower. The bedroom has one of the most comfortable beds we have slept on. The kitchen has all modern appliances including a stove, refrigerator and dishwasher. We ended up making dinner in the apartment 5 out of 7 nights – it felt like home and there wasn’t a great desire to dine out. The hosts, Frank and Elisabeth also provide a Nespresso machine so one can easily make your favorite morning and evening coffee brews.

Outside of the dining room is a great patio. We spent several evenings there with some wine, cheese and prosciutto just relaxing and gazing at the scenery. Once the sun went down and dinner was completed we spent some wonderful hours in the very comfortable living room area.

The location is perfect. At 5-minute drive, or a 10-minute bus ride down the hill and you are in the central part of town with easy access to shopping, boat cruses on the lake, train station and roads leading to the mountains. And the mountains – the rides up are wonderful and the views are spectacular. One can get to a number of great mountain areas in 30 – 45 minutes by car. As for the bus, the stop is 2 minutes from the apartment and there is a very good grocery store right in the same area.

Our hosts went out of our way to make our stay very special. Frank and Elisabeth were ready to help with anything we needed. Frank provided a lot of great information on the local area and help us make decisions, based on the weather, as to what might be the best site to see that day. We highly recommend this apartment. One of the best we have stayed in. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit and wished our plans had allowed us to stay longer.

Beautiful apartment with wonderful views!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful apartment, we couldn't have asked for more. Our hosts, Frank and Elisabeth made us feel extremely welcome and very much at home. We appreciated all the great tips for places to visit, of which there are many to chose from. The location was perfect for us, very peaceful, but close to the town and other attractions. We enjoyed cooking in the well equipped kitchen and eating outdoors every evening taking in the amazing mountain view! The bed was super comfy and the bathroom is gorgeous. We would highly recommend this gorgeous apartment. Thank you for a lovely stay in your home.

Im Bergli was just as described and more.

  • 5 of 5

Frank and Elizabeth were fabulous and delightful hosts. The pictures of the apartment are very accurate. It is clean and comfortable and the nightly sunsets were the bonus. Im Bergli is in a great central location for visiting the Emmental, Gruyeres, Bern, the Alps and so much more. We enjoyed our visit immensely and hope to be able to go back very soon.

Three days in Switzerland

  • 5 of 5

With my wife and two kids we stayed in this very nice and brand new chalet. It was fantastic.

Firstly because of the astonishing view we had from our apartment (although the lake was covered by a thick fog). But also due to the kindness of Franck and his wife. They were permanently asking (but without being intrusive) if everything was OK and gave us a lot of advice to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. They also proposed to her family to go with them for a nice walk around the village of Goldiwil. We really appreciated.

Apart from that the place is quiet and very well located if you want to discover the beautiful landscape and cities of Switzerland.

We had no surprise, everything was as indicated in the website either regarding the price of the accommodation or the apartment layout.
