Ein Geheimtip

  • 5 of 5

Sehr gastfreundliche, liebevolle, unkomplizierte Vermieter! Gemütliches, schönes, ruhiges Ferienhaus am Ende des Tales, wo kein Durchgangsverkehr lärmt. Wir (Sabine und Michael) waren 3 Wochen dort, hatten jeweils ein paar Tage auch Besuch von unseren Kindern. Es war genug Platz für alle. Besonders schön fanden wir, dass wir auf dem Balkon mit Blick auf die Lauener Bergwelt in der Morgensonne frühstücken konnten. Das Ferienhaus war für uns der ideale Ausgangspunkt für wunderschöne Wanderungen, aber auch für die Teilnahme an Konzerten im Rahmen des Menuhin-Festivals. Sehr praktisch: der Parkplatz direkt vor dem Chalet, was beim Be- und Entladen von Vorteil war. Auch WLAN-Anschluss vorhanden, was für uns wichtig war, da es einiges per email und Internet zu regeln gab. - Es waren wunderschöne 3 Wochen, die uns bestens in Erinnerung geblieben sind. Wir werden gerne wieder kommen.

Mauvais rapport qualité-prix

  • 3 of 5

Le logement est bien situé en ce qui concerne la vue, mais les équipements sont vieux: le lit de la petite chambre est défoncé, les canapés également.

Il y a peu d'espace de rangement pour les affaires personnelles, notamment dans la kitchenette. Il n'y a pas de machine à café!

Bref, le logement est trop cher pour la qualité offerte!

Owner's Response: Nous sommes désolés que votre séjour à notre chalet n'ait pas eu le succès escompté. Nous avons immédiatement pris les dispositions nécessaires pour corriger les erreurs que vous avez constatées. Il s'agit notamment de dégâts récents dont nous n'étions pas conscients. Nous essayons d'être présents en personne lors du séjour de nos locataires pour pouvoir répondre à leurs questions, mais cela n'a pas été possible cette fois-ci. Quant à la machine à café, nous avons tout de suite mis à disposition du chalet une cafetière italienne espresso.

"Sehr sympathische Unterk...

  • 5 of 5

"Sehr sympathische Unterkunft. Originelles Chalet, einfach, aber sehr gut eingerichtet, sauber und mit einladender Atmosphäre. An sehr schöner und ruhiger Lage mit Bergsicht, nicht weit vom Skilift entfernt. Sehr freundlicher Empfang durch die Vermieter.

Wir haben den Aufenthalt - als 3-Generationen-Familie - sehr genossen. Die Winterwoche bot gute Möglichkeiten für alle: Skifahren/Skischule, Skitouren, Winterwandern, Spazieren - und viel gemütliches Zusammensein im grossen Wohnzimmer."
