Excellent Chalet near Grindelwald

  • 5 of 5

A magical stay in a perfect chalet. The chalet was immaculate, spotless and well-equipped. Peter and Ursula were friendly and knowledgeable hosts. They pointed us in the direction of buying a Jungfraujoch pass which was expensive but worth every franc.

The chalet is a 15 minute downhill walk into Grindelwald. The free bus passes helped us on the uphill return journey. The Coop supermarket carries a good range and is open 7 days a week. It proved very useful.

We got out and about on buses, trains, chairlifts, boats and rack railways. We went up the Jungfraujoch for half price from Kleine Schiedegg. Fantastic trip to the top of Europe and the views were stunning. We also went up the Mannlichen and on the boats on Lakes Thunder and Brienz. The visit to the Swiss buildings museum at Ballenberg was interesting but it is huge and you need a good length of time to see the buildings brought from all over Switzerland.

All in all a great stay with hosts who kept in contact before and during our stay. Thank you.

Warmest welcome of all!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 took it's first European vacation this June. We got the warmest welcome when we arrived at Ursula and Peter's chalet. This being our third stop on our vacation, it was a great start to our Grindelwald stay. The view was breathtaking. We could see the alps right in front of us along with some waterfalls in the distance. We got a personal tour of the apartment that included a book of the area along with local information , activities and discounts. Very helpful. They had a free bus pass for us to use if we wished. This pass also gives you discounts at local attractions. It's a great location if you want a serene atmosphere or you can walk or drive to downtown where the main shops and restaurants are. We would definitely stay at this vacation rental if we ever get the chance to do a return trip. Thanks Ursula and Peter for the unique experience!!!

Wish we could have stayed longer!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4, including 2 older children, stayed for 4 nights in early summer and had a marvelous time! Ursula and Peter were very friendly and helpful, especially the book they have put together a book with useful brochures and information on local activities. The chalet has 3 stories with 2 levels for rent while Ursula and Peter live on one level. We were in the top level apartment and it was wonderful: There is plenty of closet and dresser space in the bedrooms. The kitchen is well supplied, including some starter items like sugar, tea, spices. The living space has comfortable chairs, flat screen TV, dining table. And the view from the balcony is amazing! There is only a tub (no shower) in this apartment, but the hand held shower nozzle works fine. Everything was impeccably clean and neat. Town is a short walk down the hill with bus service available back up. We preferred to just walk both ways. Main street was busy with lots of other tourists; we enjoyed the quiet location of the chalet. Unfortunately, we were only there for a short time and were not able to sample many of the outdoor activities available in town or by chairlift connection. But, we would definitely stay with Ursula and Peter again if we returned, and highly recommend their accommodation to other travelers.

Perfect Stay in Chalet Bärgarve

  • 5 of 5

The Bargarve Chalet is, simply put, perfect.

We stayed there for nearly 2 weeks, a family of 2 adults and 3 children, and felt it was completely like staying at home away from home.

You have 2 spacious bedrooms with closets, a living room with flat TV and excellent dining area, a terrific kitchen with all the facilities and utilities you could hope for (and more!) and a terrific shower.

The view right outside is breathtaking, and after 2 weeks in Grindelwald, I can honestly say no other location would give you a better view toward the mountains. As the view is easily apparent from the large windows, you truely feel inside an exceptionally beautiful postcard.

Last but not least, Peter and Ursula would do the outmost to make you feel comfortable, with excellent advice and a genuine hospitality.

Absolutely a perfect stay, warmly and wholehartedly recommended.

Can't wait to go back !

Early Summer Break

  • 5 of 5

This chalet provided a perfect holiday stay in early summer. Fr. Roth was most welcoming and communication beforehand had been excellent. We took her advice and bought the five day travel pass which enabled us to visit the highlights of the area including the Jungfraujoch, Schydinge Platte and Grindelwald First. We thoroughly enjoyed the chairlifts and the walking in the mountains. We didn't use the car once!

The chalet was well-equipped, clean, quiet and roomy. The view of the Eiger and other mountains was superb and a real treat in the afternoon was tea on the balcony in the late afternoon sun.

We walked into Grindelwald every day down the steep path, There was a fairly good supermarket where we could stock up. We had free travel on the half-hourly bus back to the chalet so we didn't have to carry our shopping bags very far.

For those who want to experience the Bernese Oberland in summer, this chalet was an ideal base. We would love to go back!

Gemütlich, kinderfreundlich, mit Herz ...

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben einen sehr schönen und erholsamen Urlaub in Chalet Bärgarve verbracht.

Unsere Wohnung im 2.OG des Chalets ließ keine Wünsche offen. Sie verfügte über 2 Schlafzimmer (alternativ 1 Schlafzimmer, 1 Kinderzimmer), ein gemütliches Wohnzimmer mit Balkon, eine komfortabel ausgestattete Küche sowie ein solides Badezimmer. Genügend Platz für erholsame Ferien mit unserem 4-jährigen Sohn. Die Wohnung ist insgesamt sehr gemütlich und liebevoll eingerichtet. In der modernen Küche stehen zudem alle notwendigen Küchenhelfer zur Verfügung. Ein WLAN-Anschluss kann ebenfalls genutzt werden.

Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Neben den vielen Informationen zum Urlaub, die bereits in der Wohnung ausliegen, sind die Vermieter jederzeit ansprechbar und geben gerne Auskunft zu Ausflugszielen und lohnenswerten Wanderungen. Darüber hinaus sind die Vermieter sehr kinderfreundlich. Unser Sohn war jederzeit gerne willkommen und gern gesehener Gesprächspartner.

Das Chalet liegt oberhalb des Ortskerns, der zu Fuß in ca. 15 Minuten erreichbar ist. Mit den Linien des Ortsbusses ist die Wohnung gut zu erreichen (die Nutzung ist mit der Gästekarte gratis). Vom Balkon der Wohnung hatten wir einen herrlichen Blick auf den Eiger. Mit dem von den Vermietern zur Verfügung gestellten Fernrohr konnte wir sehr gut die Bergsteiger auf dem Mittellegigrat auf ihrem Weg zum Gipfel beobachten.

Uns hat der Urlaub so gut gefallen, dass wir gerne noch einmal wiederkommen.
