AND WHY CHOOSE LEUKERBAD?

It is the small brother to Saas Fee, Zermatt, and Crans Montana, and still preserves the feel of a mountain village and is BETTER VALUE than it's neighbours!!

A bit about the village: All facilities/shops are within walking distance from Residenz Ambassador, so for those who prefer not to drive, it is not essential to have a car whilst in Leukerbad. Public transport gets you to Leukerbad with Swiss efficiency, by train and then connecting bus. The tourist information in the town has information on all walks and activities available and the bus station can book tickets for excursions out of Leukerbad, to local towns like Zermatt or as far away as Milan and Rome.

German is the main language in Leukerbad but English works well if you want it to. You can also use French and Italian, so don't let language be a barrier to experiencing this delightful little town - plenty of old, quiet Swiss charm (you can hear the cow bells tinkling from the balcony in the Summer months), soaring and dramatic snow capped mountains surround the village, and you can watch the tumbling waterfalls from both balconies in the apartment.

Shops and facilities: .Walking distance to the many restaurants and shops. The shops include: Migros supermarket, Pharmacy, Wine Shop, Bakery, Fromagerie with lots of local cheeses, Tourist Information, Banks, two Ski Hire and Outdoor Clothing Shops, Chemist. Beautician and Hairdressers, and Beauty and Wellness treatments at the Walliser Alpentherme, along with great medical facilities.

About Tina and Tony Geary

We both live in the UK but have always had one foot in Europe - and love Switzerland because it is so central - north to Germany, west to France and south to Italy. We love exploring different cultures. Tina is a relationship therapist and book blogger, and Tony runs his own company.

Tina and Tony Geary purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Tina and Tony Geary chose Leuk

We spent several years choosing location and when we discovered Leukerbad it ticked all 10 boxes - we wanted somewhere where you don't need a car, for example; you can walk to all amenities; there is a good infrastructure; and the biggest plus are the Thermal Baths... until you have tried bobbing in bubbling waters under a clear night sky....

What makes this apartment unique

We have a great concierge who looks after all our guests and is always ready with a helping hand - the general tranquility, central location, views and cosiness all attracted us to this property. We hope you will enjoy the features too.

Absolutely Magnificent!

  • 5 of 5

Words and pictures cannot describe Tina and Tony’s welcoming generosity and their lovely Leukerbad apartment. If you are traveling to Leukerbad, we highly recommend staying in this stunning, wonderfully equipped, comfortable, spacious apartment.

Typically it is a bit challenging to book international accommodations. However, Tina and Tony made this process completely stress-free. We felt like they were welcoming us into their home not as renters but as friends.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by Ana, the Ambassador’s concierge. Ana’s kindness, efficiency and desire to make everything perfect for us way surpassed anything that we could have ever imagined. Ana gave us a tour of our gorgeous, immaculate apartment. She then took the time to familiarize us with the fabulous amenities available at the Ambassador which included a bright, well-equipped gym, beautiful spa and laundry room.

Tina and Tony’s apartment is in a perfect location – short stroll to multiple bus stops, the Migros (very nice, large grocery store), many restaurants, the thermal baths and much more. Also, easy access to many breathtaking walks – which Tina and Tony had taken the time to document and include in the wealth of information that they provide in their apartment.

During our stay Ana, Tina and Tony made sure that our every need was meet. We truly could not imagine more luxurious accommodations and hosts. Thank you Tina, Tony and Ana for making our holiday in Leukerbad so special and memorable.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic time here - we stayed for 8 days in September 2014. The apartment is very handy for the station, the baths, the local walks and (sadly for our waistlines) the bakery. The spec of the apartment is top notch (the kitchen in particular was fantastic - all those gadgets you have at home could be found here unlike many sc apartments we have stayed in!) and Ana the concierge was just so helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Is it time to go back yet?!

Pleasant apartment in a charming Swiss ski village

  • 4 of 5

Leukerbad is a charming town with stunning mountain vistas, many lovely hiking trails with charming restaurants along the way, several trams and gondolas to the start of gorgeous mostly downhill hikes, and thermal baths with access to great massages. We especially loved being in a vacation area that felt very regional, where hiking maps were only in German and French, and many small restaurants didn’t have English menus. Felt like a true getaway for us!

The apartment was very centrally located and convenient. It's relatively new and very well cared for with a pleasant décor and lots of light. There are fine linens and comfortable beds, lots of storage in bedrooms and bathrooms, functional and attractive furniture, and a very well equipped kitchen. There's an abundance of hot water for a long soaking bath plus a shower immediately after. The automatic shutters are very effective in blocking outside lights at night, and there is quite a bit of light that comes into one window in the master bedroom.

The Wellness Center is a very nice addition and the steam bath and sauna are very hot and pleasant.

The view from the apartment was our only disappointment. The photos were taken, showing the view from the right side of the balcony. Straight ahead and on the left side, depending on where you are sitting in the living area, a rather unattractive, blocky building blocks much of the lower view. The apartment was described as being “3 floors up” which we understood to mean it was on the third story (eg you push the elevator button for “3” and you get to your floor). In fact it was on floor “1” as shown on the elevator. The utility room and Wellness Center are on the bottom floor above the parking garage, then the Reception is on the main “0” floor, and the apartment is the next floor up. This means it’s not quite high enough to have views that aren’t partially blocked by the roof of the blocky building.

Our disappointment probably came only from the expectations created by the website description as overall our experience was very pleasant. Bettina, the owner, and Ana, the concierge, were both very helpful and the apartment is definitely a high value for the cost.

Sehr schönes neues Objekt,

  • 5 of 5

Sehr schöne Appartementanlage mit tollem Wellnessbereich und allem Comfort innerhalb der Fereinwohnung den man sich wünscht. Sehr nette und umsichtige Betreuung vor Ort. Preis Leistung ist hier top, was in der Schweiz oftmals nicht der Fall ist. Der Konntakt zu den Eigentümern war sehr kompetent und herzlich.

Übrigens hat die Wohnung einen genialen Südbalkon mit herlicher Weitsicht ins Tal hinein. "Tina in my opinion the appartement needs a new sofa in the living room" but that is just a little detail. ;-)

Wenn noch einmal Leukerbad, dann komme ich bestimmt wieder in diese Wohnung.

Brillinat 6 days!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a brilliant time here. The apartment was gorgeous, beautifully furnished, very comfortable and very reasonably priced. The town itself is beautiful, surrounded by breath taking mountains and scenery. The walks, thermal baths, wine tasting and great food all made it an amazing holiday and we definitely want to go back!

Lovely & luxurious

We found this spacious apartment to be well-equipped, well-situated and immacuately clean. It also had luxurious details and beautiful views. The concierge was very professional and helpful. The owner was quick to respond to our enquiries and very accommodating. We had a lovely stay, would stay again and would recommend to others.
