Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Jaun is a little and charming village in the middle of the mountains and the Chalet Barbara is a nest of comfort! Quiet, well equiped, spacious and with a gorgeous view, we really appreciated our stay!

Chalet at the top of the mountain

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as described and pictured. It's actually a bit better since there is an extra shower and sink in the second bedroom. Also, the views are much better than the pictures reveal. The house was very clean and well maintained. The owner met us there and showed us around. He was very helpful and recommended places to shop and dine.

The village is very quiet and quaint but there is much to do in the neighboring areas. We went to the Gruyere cheese making facility and the Nestle chocolate factory. We also drove over the Jaunpass to Gstaad for the day.

If you want to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, then this is your place.

We will hopefully return to this house the next time we're in Switzerland.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the Chalet Barbara was perfect. Great location in the remote village of Jaun in the Gruyeres region. You can overlook the town and the waterfall from the balcony. The pictures on the listing that overlook the town were actually taken from the balcony.

The owner and property manager were both great to work with. The Chalet itself was clean and spacious for our family of 4. The heated floors were nice. We were provided linens, towels dishes etc.

There is nothing negative we have to say about our stay. Wee will definitely go back.

Great short stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at chalet Barbara in mid May. The location is excellent with a picturesque view of the Jaun valley. The chalet was quite spacious even for the four of us. The chalet is very well kept, well equipped and with good heating. Unfortunately we could stay only for 3 days but would have loved to stay longer. Its a great value for money. We surely recommend for families and romantic holidays.

Fantástico , bien situado. El único problema fue que solo hablo español y nos costó un poco entendernos. Por lo demás genial.
