Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 8.

This highly acclaimed, spacious, middle floor, 3 bedroom apartment is in a quiet chalet of only 6 apartments and is comfortable with a generous 110sq m of living space. We have 54 reviews all at 5 stars so you can be sure that we'll work hard to give you the holiday of a lifetime. You have here an opportunity to holiday in the famous Lauterbrunnen valley of 72 waterfalls. As you can see from the main photos that there are no chalets to the side or directly in front of ours and it is not by the road so it is likely to be much quieter than some others! The chalet has easy access to local shops, restaurants and the local train/cable car services to the Alpine villages of Wengen, Grindlewald and Mürren, from which you can access the many hundreds of kilometres of walking trails and ski runs. It is also convenient for access to the major towns of Interlaken, Bern and Lucerne. Getting to Lauterbrunnen either by train or car is very easy. A car is not essential but there is a lockable garage available to you free of charge. Whether your choice is Summer or Winter you can be sure of lots to do, or just relax with the fantastic views from our balcony. It is fitted out to a high standard for discerning people. The living area has a full width SOUTH facing balcony for sun bathing or eating outside and captures the view of the snow capped mountains all year round. The master bedroom has a sloping pine ceiling and looks to the Staubbach waterfall as do both other bedrooms and kitchen. Free wireless broadband is available. The price, based on up to 6 people, also includes heating, cleaning, linen, local taxes and taxed rubbish bags i.e. there are no extras. Please note that smoking is not allowed inside. We don't use bunk beds, sofa beds or shower curtains so your stay will be very comfortable. All reviews are genuinely and independently written by guests. The availability chart is kept up to date daily. If you have a larger group we will try to find a second apartment for you through our contacts.

Owners Profile: Rob has retired as Finance and Premises Manager at a large London school, so you can be sure that your money is safe and your contact with us will be efficiently and promptly handled. We have been with this website for over 10 years.

Susi is a native Swiss who speaks German and Swiss German fluently.

Some activities:

If you want to sky dive, or take part in white water rafting at the time when the river is running wild, then Lauterbrunnen has all this to offer.

Our chalet is very convenient for skiing and walking and is only 1 minute from the bus stop for the 3 minute ride to access the mountain transport. Buses are free in the ski season.

OUR RENTAL RATES ARE USUALLY 60% CHEAPER THAN IN WENGEN AND GRINDELWALD

About Rob & Susi Weaver

Hello - We are Rob and Susi Weaver and we live in UK. We love this apartment which is often called the best located apartment in the area, even by other owners! Please read our many genuine reviews. If you would like to chat through anything please send us an enquiry and if you request it, we will give lots of suggestions to help you to plan your holiday. We have been with Homeaway since 2006 when the chalet was built so you can be 100% confident that your payments will be secure.

Rob & Susi Weaver purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Rob & Susi Weaver chose Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau

Susi comes from Switzerland so it was a natural development for us to buy an apartment near ski resorts and walking areas. We fell in love with this property and Lauterbrunnen immediately, as you will too.

What makes this apartment unique

The view from the balcony is a "wow" all year round. The chalet is warm and inviting and so convenient for everything. The balcony is warm for most parts of the year but the apartment is cool in the summer and cosy in the winter with underfloor heating. Summer air conditioning is unnecessary.

Great Apartment Rental for a Family or Group of Friends!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 3 couples spent six nights in this apartment. We found it to be well-furnished and comfortable.The views of the waterfall were spectacular!

We had planned a day or so of relaxation after 2 very busy weeks, but the weather was beautiful the first 2 days we were there-not a cloud in the sky. So of course we had to take advantage of that and go up into the mountains! Since ski season was just winding down, shuttle buses in the valley were free; we used them to get to various cable car locations via which we explored some of the car-less villages (one day) and the Schilthorn on the second day. Rob's suggestions for things to do in the area were very useful, and we followed many of them. When the weather turned cloudier, we went to Trummelbach Falls, which is within walking distance via the Wanderweg (pathway). It stayed away from the road and provided a nice alternative to taking the bus; it also goes all the way into town. Another day we took a road trip to Gruyeres, about 1-11/2 hrs away by car; we took a very interesting tour of the cheese factory there. The restaurant Rob recommended-Restaurant Weidstubli-was in Camping Jungfrau, a short walk from our apartment. The food was delicious, and prices there were much more reasonable than restaurants in town.

When we did cook in the apartment, we found that we had all necessary supplies. The internet connection was good; there was plenty of space for everyone....overall a terrific experience!

We would definitely recommend this apartment as a base of operations during a visit to the Lauterbrunnen Valley. There's so much to do!

Almost forgot-the deposit for this rental was on its way back to us within hours of our leaving the property!!

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We have just stayed at the property and we recommend staying there. The property has plenty of room and facilities (plenty of cooking utensils including a fondue for a perfect Swiss night),and very comfortable, the views are stunning and it is in a nice quiet area. It is a bit out of the village but the 141 bus is handy to get you up and down the valley. We have stayed in Lauterbrunnen many times and this is one of best property's we have stayed in.

The perfect Ski getaway

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Apartment Weaver for a few days in January. The chalet felt like a home away from home. It's very comfortable and has everything you need after a hard day on the slopes. The views are amazing its the perfect spot to drink your morning coffee. The owners knowledge of the local area really helped plan the perfect trip. I'm looking forward to another stay soon. Thanks for letting me stay in your beautiful chalet Helen Dunlop

impressive from all points of view

  • 5 of 5

thank you, Rob and Susi for allowing us to stay in your marvellous apartment. It was a perfect location for us from which to take day trips and a welcome space to come back to in the evening. It was well maintained, impeccably clean and very well equipped. The views from all windows were magnificent, we never tired of watching the waterfall and hang gliders! We made ourselves at home and our only regret is that we could not stay longer. Be assured that we will be in touch again if we return to Lauterbrunnen in the hopes that the apartment will be available. We would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for comfortable, spacious and welcoming accommodation.

Stunning apartment in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful week. Chalet is superbly located for many walks, and links to cable cars, buses and trains. Stunning views from all windows, whether its waterfalls or snow-capped mountains. Great just sitting on balcony looking at views! Lovely walk into village along the river, to the waterfall and local campsite good for bread. We found Lidl in Interlaken best value for main shopping. Too many things we wanted to do in just 6 days. Took train to Interlaken for a day, went up Schilthorn, Schynige Platte from Wilderswil was a lovely train ride and walks at top and views. Cable car from Lauterbrunnen up to Grutschalp and level walk to Murren (1hr). Then fennicular up to Allmenchubel from Murren was good, and cable car down from Murren and bus back to chalet. Lots to do at Grindelwald. There was a summer toboggan at Pfingstegg which was great fun, and girls loved high ropes at sports centre which was above the ice rink. Ideal for a wet day. Favourite day was gondola at Grindelwald to First, walked to the lake Bulchapse (1hr) for picnic and back. We visited the Trummelbach falls - only take cash! We bought the swiss travel passes which definitely saved us money on transport. Didn't actually use the car that much. Overall a holiday we will remember for a long time, a stunning chalet in a lovely and convenient location, and Tina, the rep, who came to greet us gave us lots of advice and suggestions to help us. Will definitely be back to do the rest of the things we ran out of time to do!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of four (two couples) and we all absolutely loved our stay here! The apartment is spacious, well stocked, clean and very comfortable. Rob was wonderful to work with ....several emails back and forth with various requests and questions before our arrival, and he was always helpful and quick to respond. Once we arrived, Tina came by and answered any questions we had and showed us how to operate various appliances. She also recommended the restaurant in the camping area which turned out to be wonderful. We had all visited Lauterbrunnen about 20 years ago, and stayed at hotels at that time. This was SO MUCH more enjoyable! Every evening we relaxed on the balcony for our happy hour and watched the nearby farmer lead his sheep back home. It was a sight we all looked forward to. The view from all windows is simply magnificent! I highly recommend this beautiful apartment and will stay there again if I am lucky enough to visit beautiful Lauterbrunnen a third time in my life!

The Lauterbrunnen Valley is surrounded by the unspoilt natural beauty of the magnificent Swiss Alps including the Eiger mountain. Lauterbrunnen's cascading 300 metre high Staubbach waterfall, viewed from all bedrooms, becomes even more impressive when illuminated at night. The famous Trummelbach falls inside the Jungfrau are a short walk away. An easy 30 minutes' walk along the valley brings you to Stechelberg with access to superb mountain walking. 10 minutes walk in the other direction are the main shops, restaurants, banks and post office. There is also a yellow Postbus which takes only 3 minutes to the station. Interlaken is 15 minutes drive or train ride away with its wide variety of shops and lake pursuits.

Lauterbrunnen is a great base to explore the Jungfrau Ski Region. There are 45 mountain trains, cable cars, chair and ski lifts, with 210km of pistes for skiers, 100km of winter hiking and cross-country tracks, and 50km of sledge runs.

Other Activities: heli-skiing, helicopter rides, hotel spas

Golf: There is a qualtiy 9 hole course in Interlaken about 20 minutess drive away.

Other Sports

White water rafting in late Spring/Early Summer

Shooting

Ski: The prices in Switzerland are fairly comparable with UK and many other countries. For example here are the skiing prices:The three areas covering 213 km of pistes are linked with a single pass: 2 days about 130CHF, 6 days about 300CHF. Individual passes valid for each area: 1 day about 60CHF, 2 days 110CHF. All the resorts have ski schools offering both daily classes and private lessons in skiing and snowboarding. Ski hire is available in Lauterbrunnen.

The cross country skiing track is situated right outside our chalet.

Why stay in Wengen where apartments rent for about 50% more than ours when ours is so accessible to Wengen and Mürren?
