Guestbook comments from the owner

A huge thank you to both of you for letting us your fantastic apartment over Easter. It was just a divine break for us both. Stunning scenery, lovely meals, lots of Swiss chocs and wine. The main things though were the walks - some 3 hours long through deep snow! We just loved it all and will want to make a return trip. All so clean and fresh and healthy - I even persuaded Stephen to attend a wonderful Easter Service!

Another lovely fortnight in this beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Chateau-d'Oex many times and this was our 3rd stay in this lovely apartment. Inside - it is well equipped, furnished and decorated to a high standard yet still very comfortable. Outside - the very large terrace is still a big attraction for us along with the breath-taking views that can be seen from it.

It is lovely to have the use of the swimming pool, although we would suggest the hours between which it can be used are a little restrictive as they tend to be when we are out doing other things. It would therefore be nice to be able to have access both earlier in the morning and later in the evening. There is also a gym that appears well equipped but as we have only ever looked at it, never used it, we cannot say more.

In the communal lounge area there are games, books and jigsaws for general use. We have added to the collection.

Chateau-d'Oex itself remains as unspoilt now as it was all those years ago when I first started visiting, although it is sad that the de l'Ours Brasserie has now closed down. The Station buffet, however, seems to go from strength to strength and is still (in our opinion) one of the best eateries in town.

Our thanks to the apartment owner, Kenneth Grant, for being so kind and accommodating and making the whole booking process very easy. Our thanks also to Joy de Dycker, the lettings manager, for her kindness and consideration during our stay. We will be back!

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Chateau d'Oex in this wonderful apartment. It was perfect for us, very well equipped with everything we could hope for. The apartment is beautifully decorated and the pool and gym were a bonus. To top it all off, a huge balcony with an absolutely amazing view... definitely the wow factor. Thank you to Joy for welcoming us so warmly, and to Kenneth for making the whole process so easy.

An ideal venue

  • 5 of 5

I already knew the area but from another valley .However, this apartment was beautifully appointed amongst glorious scenery and contained every home comfort one could need. We visited a selection of scenic and interesting places - Gruyere, Thun, Lake Geneva and Chateau de Chillon, Bern, Gstaad and Les Diablerets, Our entire trip was enhanced by glorious weather and meals both at the apartment and on our visits were eaten outside. The enormous terrace was a great bonus. A dip in the pool during such hot weather was very therapeutic. The tranquil surroundings did not put us in an isolated position as food supplies and fuel for the car were within easy reach.

Beautiful apartment with a view to die for….

  • 5 of 5

This lovely apartment has everything you need for the perfect holiday, whether you want to be active (skiing/walking/etc) or simply chill out and enjoy the peace and quiet and gorgeous view. A huge attraction for us is this apartment’s fabulous terrace - far larger and better than the more usual balconies some apartments have. We’ve spent many happy hours just sitting with a glass of wine watching the birds and sunsets. Even when the weather isn’t so great, the big picture window still enables easy viewing of the idyllic scenery.

There are only two very slight draw-backs as far as we are concerned and they are very minor indeed and certainly not the fault of apartment itself:

1. We find the swimming pool water too cool to be pleasant and we usually only manage one ‘dip’ per stay just to say we tried it.

2. Although the apartment block is only a short walk from the town centre and is all downhill going out, it’s quite a steep climb for the last few hundred yards on the way back. Helps to get us fit though!

We’ve stayed here twice now and certainly hope to be back again, and again……need I say more?

Simply perfect. Spacious, beautiful, well appointed, wonderful facilities, quiet, splendid view.

  • 5 of 5

We are a Swiss family with two kids and we all agreed it was the best ski holiday we'd ever taken!

The apartment is very cosy, nicely decorated, with plenty of storage space and good beds.

The bright living room and bedrooms are facing south overlooking a big terrace.

It is situated in a residence with swimming pool, sauna, big inviting lobby with games and books, a business center, parking. It has the facilities of a good big hotel without crowd and inconveniences: it is very quite and private indeed. Guests can also use a ski room and a laundry room (it was very helpful for drying swimming suits and kids ski clothes).

There are two managers, one welcoming the guests and the other taking care of the facility, both very nice and helpful.

Mr Kenneth Grant, the owner, was also very kind and helpful during reservation.

Thank you, Kenneth, we loved every minute of our stay!

PS: Your will have to take the car to reach the ski lifts in the region. It can be 5 to 20 min long ride depending where you want to ski. The ski domain is big, but not always connecting on skis. Ski domain maps are available on gstaad.ch
