About Miranda Lane

Now living in Deal, Kent when not in Wengen. We play golf in UK and when in Wengen we ski if the weather is nice and enjoy the Village and the views when it is not. We have 2 daughters and 2 sons and 10 grandchildren. In the Winter months, the oldest children ski and the younger ones toboggan when they come to stay. In the Summer months there is a great deal for the children to enjoy including "trotti biking, outdoor parks, boating and swimming etc.

Miranda Lane purchased this chalet in 2009

Why Miranda Lane chose Wengen

We knew we wanted to buy a place in Wengen because I had been visiting there for a very long time. We were so lucky that Chalet Bijouli was available when we were looking and knew it was 'the place' the moment we walked in. The 3 double bedrooms are well equipped with fitted cupboards and basins and the sitting room has a wonderful log fire and there is a dining room. The kitchen is separate and the whole provides a warm and comfortable house with some antique furniture in the living room but with a modern kitchen and bathrooms. There is a large south and west facing terrace with views across the Lauterbrunnen Valley towards Murren and a rockery garden.

The chalet is looked after by Kathleen Bruno who offers invaluable help with extra cleaning and other services (obviously she will charge for this). There is also a great tourist office in Wengen. In the Village you will find everything you need shops (some deliver), hotels with sports facilities, bars, restaurants, sports shops with hire facilities and several ski schools. There are nursery slopes, an ice rink, crèche and play facilities. In the centre of the village there is the cable car to Mannlichen with its miles of pistes and whatever your level you can ski, board, toboggan, hike or just lie in the sun with a glass or two and enjoy the ambiance! This is a car free resort so you must leave your car in Lauterbrunnen car park and use the mountain railway. Most ski/train passes will cover your mountain railway trip between Lauterbrunnen, Wengwald and Wengen.

The Best Views We’ve Ever Seen!

  • 5 of 5

Chalet Bijouli was intimate and cozy with some of the best views we’ve ever seen. Miranda was very kind/ helpful, and the instructions to getting settled were thorough. The Chalet rests about 50 Meters above the train station, and all necessities were 5 minutes away. The environment is quiet, and the bells of the livestock will lull you to sleep each night. Our family will not soon forget Chalet Bijouli!

The chalet has all one could hope for and much more! It really feels like home away from home! Although it is not ski in ski out, it is super conveniently located that it provides easy and fast access to the slopes! The chalet is also fully equipped with games and movies, so when you are not skiing, your kids are fully entertained!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your very kind words and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Yes, it is very much "our home" and we are so pleased when guests enjoy the chalet as much as we do. It may be on the edge of the Village, but access to and from the ski slopes is so easy with the train being only 2 minutes away.

Best ever late Summer holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Even when the weather was not perfect, we enjoyed ourselves. Great chalet, great walking, great everything. Although the chalet was not in the village, we were there to walk...... so we took the train to the Village for shopping............ so easy and walked everywhere else. Views were tremendous. The chalet quiet (except for mooing cows!), well equipped, well furnished and for us, it was just what we wanted. Thank you Miranda and family..... we will be back.

Lovely Chalet

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay in Chalet Bijouli for a too short 4 days. We loved the location 10 minutes from Wengen in a small farming village. The chalet was beautiful and had everything you would ever need, especially in the kitchen. We cooked many of our meals while we there and always had an abundance of utensils, spices, etc. Catherine was a great help with assistance with finding the location, restaurants, etc. Thank you Miranda for sharing your incredible chalet!

Cozy home, gorgeous view

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this chalet! The space felt authentically Swiss, the location just outside Wengen was superb--probably closer to the train than had we stayed in the village itself, and the view was stunning. Miranda was wonderful in the booking process and communicated all the details of our stay in a timely manner. I would highly recommend this rental and hope to return again someday. Thank you, Miranda, for helping make our Switzerland dream vacation a reality!

The Chalet is situated on the edge of Wengen, lying at the foot of the famous Eiger Monch and Jungfrau range within the Jungfrau world heritage site; an area of outstanding natural beauty. Bijouli offers relaxation in pure mountain air with lots of sunshine even in the snow! There are numerous activities; walking,hiking, mountaineering and winter sports being the obvious ones, but you can just sit and enjoy the wonderful views making it an ideal location to visit winter and summer alike! The world's hardest marathon, The Jungfrau, takes place every September and The World Cup ski circuit comes to town in January. It is ideally situated for visiting Interlaken and Bern by train or the local resorts of Grindelwald, with views of the Eiger North Wall or car free Murren, both accessible by cable car. Whilst at Murren you can visit the Schilthorn where the James Bond film 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' was filmed, or spend a day at the top of the Jungfrau at 3454m. See availability.

Other Activities: white water rafting, snow boarding, bird spotting, nature rambles
