About the property

The quiet apartment is located in a chalet on the southern slope, 100 m above the 1030 m high-altitude Jaun. There are 2 parking places available. The small village is nestled in a charming Valley of the Fribourg Alps between the Gruyère - and Bernese Oberland. Unspoilt by crowds it offers the image of a historical unspoilt mountain village. The Chalet is an ideal starting point for hikes and mountain tours in warm season for the nature lover. Fresh mountain air, the sight of the pastures and mountains with varied alpine flora will throw away all your worries. Low noise of the remarkable Jauner falls protects your sleep. In the Cantorama, a little old church, you can enjoy classical and popular musical performances. Close to Jaun by car (approx. 8 km) you will find tennis courts and Spa. Free bathing can be done at Lake of Gruyère or in Schwarzsee. For winter sports, all usual options are on-site and nearby.

Restaurants: Hotel/Restaurant Wasserfall in the village on foot in approximately 10 minutes away. Other drive restaurants after 10 minutes can be reached (Jaunpass, Im Fang, Charmey)

Walks: You can start walks and hiking tours directly from the Chalet. The hike routes are marked with signs, a map is not really necessary. Mountain climbs are possible up to 2100 meters.

Very popular is hiking to the Schwarzsee (to and back each direction one and a half hour), to Chalet du Soldat (each direction about two hours) or to the nearest city Charmey (to and back each walk one and a half hour), but also other hikes are highly recommended.

New thermal baths are in Charmey (8 km).

A very modern 4-seater chairlift exists in Jaun since 2011. It opens up various hiking trails in the summer and brings you to beautiful views. It's also used for skiing in the winter (along with 3 other T-bar lifts) and tobogganing.

Great Chalet in Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

During our stay here I spent most of my free time on the balcony taking pictures, Some of the pictures taken there received comments from Facebook friends like "I'm jealous", "is this a postcard?" "There are truly beautiful places on earth." and "That's amazing."

The setting is amazing. The Chalet sits above Jaun and looks out over the small village and the mountains in the distance. You even see the town's waterfall from the balcony.

The Chalet is clean, comfortable and well equipped. There are two units there with separate entrances, the rental is the lower unit (the upper is the owner's vacation home and it is not rented out.) It is quiet and private. The local caretaker and his family are dairy farmers and wonderful people. The owners live in German and are very kind folks.

Jaun has everything you would need, including a market and bank. Unless you are really flexible and good with local bus service, you will need a car. Easy drive to incredible alp scenery, Lake Geneva, castles, vineyards, chocolate factory and Gruyere cheese factory. Hiking galore including walking trails to the next village. It is right on the cusp of Swiss German and French speaking Switzerland, (Juan is on the German side, the next village over speaks mostly French.)

I would highly recommend this Chalet to anyone who wants to relax and see a very special area of Switzerland.

Jolies Vacances dans ce bel appartement du Chalet Ilse

  • 5 of 5

Jaun est une petite station très familiale, nous avons passé un agréable séjour et nous nous sentions comme chez nous ! Très confortable et bien pensé (tout ce qu'il faut et jouets pour les enfants). Juste le bois du lit superposé de la chambre des enfants grince fortement, mais à part ce détail, nous reviendrons très volontiers +++ Beaucoup a découvrir dans cette région de La Gruyère, merci pour tout !

Un site exceptionnel, la calme et la nature absolus, des gens très attachants

  • 5 of 5

Chalet à flanc de montagnes avec une vue surplombant la vallée de la Jaun, vue splendide sur le massif de Gastlosen, incroyablement calme et reposant, appartement spacieux très bien équipé inondé de soleil jusqu'à 17H30 à cette époque de l'année, le poêle à bois d'appoint est très agréable, et l'accueil de Marcel BUCHS a été très chaleureux. Dans le village, boulangerie & épicerie particulièrement pratiques. Fromagerie au début de la vallée avec d'excellents produits. Enfin, l'accès au village de Gruyères, Lac Léman, Corniche de Lavaux, Freiburg, Thun reste relativement aisé.

Premier voyage en Suisse enchantant nous apparaissant comme un beau pays peuplé de gens tous très accueillants. Probablement à refaire en été!

Sehr schönes Chalet in ruhiger Bergwelt.

  • 5 of 5

Nach einigen Jahren waren wir wieder einmal in Jaun zu Gast. Wir hatten uns als Unterkunft für das Chalet Ilse entschieden und waren sehr zufrieden. Das Chalet bietet alles was man für einen ruhigen und entspannten Urlaub benötigt. Die Küche ist komplett ausgestattet und auch der Rest der Wohnung lässt keine Wünsche offen. Überboten wird das Ganze noch von der tollen Aussicht über Jaun, den Wasserfall und das gesamte Tal. Direkt von der Unterkunft aus kann man schöne Wanderungen in die Bergwelt unternehmen. Auch der sehr nahe Jaunpass ist immer einen Besuch wert. Wir haben bei unserem Besuch das sehr nette Vermieter Ehepaar kennengelernt, das uns mit vielen Ausflugstipps versorgte. Wir können das Chalet Ilse nur weiterempfehlen und werden selbst bestimmt wiederkommen.

The Chalet is situated directly on the excellent hiking trails and about 10-15 minutes walking distance from the Jaun Village centre with all necessary shopping for your daily needs, post, Bank, bus station, access to the Vita Parcours (fitness trail) and to the ski lifts, the chair lift and the cross-country trails in the winter.

The next bigger village is Charmey in 10 km distance, the Jaun Pass (about 1550m above sea level. d. M.) 6 km away, with transition to the Bernese Oberland and his further winter sports domains to Gstaad (about 40 minutes drive away).

By car you get easy to the recommended summer destinations on Lake Geneva (Vevey, Montreux, Lausanne) or to the East of Lake Thun with Spiez or Interlaken and the high mountain railway to the Jungfraujoch, both within about an hour.

Other activities:

Summer: Well maintained fitness trail (Vita Parcours), Wellnessbath close (Charmey, 8 km), free swimming in the Lake of Gruyère (15 km) or in the Lake Schwarzsee, also mountain biking and climbing tours possible.

Winter: In the winter, you can go downhill as well as cross-country skiing in Jaun. The well-kept cross-country piste is illuminated until 22:00(10:00p.m.). Three ski lifts and a chairlift, each with base station at the village of Jaun, ski school for beginners and children. By means of the chair lift also leads the 6 km-long toboggan with a difference in altitude of 500 m.

Only 6 km to go to the Jaunpass with other ski slopes, easy to reach by car, and more possibilities within 40 min drive by car to ski resorts in the Bernese Oberland (Rinderberg-Zweisimmen, Gstaad, Saanenmöser, Lenk-Adelboden, among others)

Snow-shoe hikes of Jaun out are possible with the local holiday service.
