Property type chalet
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

for 2 to 6 people, with seating, 2 balconies, PP

In an idyllic mountain village in the Swiss Alps, not far from the famous Aletsch Glacier, lies the "Vieux Chalet". The 400-year-old Valais mountain farmhouse has been renovated from the ground up and lovingly furnished in a successful mix of alpine and modern style. If you are looking for peace, nature experience and a house with history, this is the place for you. The accommodation can accommodate up to six people.

From Grengiols the holidaymaker can devote himself to all snow sports to his heart's content. Explore the mountains with a snowshoe hike, cross-country skiing in the Goms, or take a few laps on the natural ice rink, only a 5-minute walk from the holiday home.

The small Haufenweiler Bächerhäusern is just like a mountain village likes to paint: the houses are adorned, the wooden beams are tanned by the sun, geraniums on the balconies and in the middle of the hamlet the fountain splashes. In summer it is the ideal starting point to enjoy all that the region has to offer. The unique flora and fauna, rare minerals and the beautiful villages with the sun-tanned houses will inspire you. Hikes through cultivated landscapes, a breathtaking panorama of the Breithorn (2593m.ü.M), fine products from the park region and much more await you on your tour through the landscape park Binntal.

Some might like it adventurous - sporty: how about mountain bike excursions, or just hang out in the high rope park of the Bettmeralp ... But the magic forest, an adventure and adventure path for children between 3 to 10 years, is one of the absolute favorites of the kids.

The youngsters offer elementary experiences in the great outdoors. When and where else can they simply run out, move freely without traffic, wade through a stream, smell forest earth, grill at the fire pit Cervelats on the wooden skewer in the evening? Look forward to a unique stay!

Wir verbrachten eine unvergessliche Woche Ende August in diesem traumhaft schönen, sehr geschmackvoll und wertig ausgestatteten Chalet. Es fehlte uns an nichts, sogar ein Raclettegeschirr war vorhanden! Die Lage ist idyllisch und idealer Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen in die umliegende Bergwelt. Unsere Hochgebirgstour im Schatten des imposanten Aletschgletschers werden wir wohl nie vergessen. Auch unsere Kinder liebten das Häuschen wie auch des Nachbars Katzennachwuchs, ein honigfarbenenes Katerchen, der uns regelmäßig besuchte. Vielen Dank an die herzliche Gastgeberin! Wir kommen wieder (wenn wir dürfen ;))

Schönes Ferienhaus in ruhiger Lage

  • 4 of 5

Neu- und hochwertig renoviertes, altes Bauernhaus. Vollständig ausgestattete Küche, grosse getrennte Wohn- und Essbereiche. Gut geeignet für zwei Paare plus 2 Kinder. Die ruhige, etwas abgelegene Lage erfordert ein Fahrzeug.

Sehr schönes Ferienhaus, absolut empfehlenswert

  • 5 of 5

Der Urlaub in Grengiols hat uns super gefallen. Familie Bidderbost sind sehr nette Vermieter. Das Haus hat einen wunderschönen urigen Stil, ist sehr modern und reichlich ausgestattet und im Sommer auch einen schönen Außenbereich zum Frühstücken, Ausruhen etc. Die Lage im Oberdorf Weiler Bächerhausen ist ebenso urig (ca 10 Häuser und man fühlt sich ein wenig wie zu Beginn des 20. JH) und alles gut erreichbar (die Mitarbeiter im örtlichen Supermarkt sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, zB auch bei Sonderwünschen). Alles in allem absolute Empfehlung

In one word: Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We are frequent visitors to this part of Switzerland, but this was the first time we stayed in a Chalet in the Grengiols area. It was also the first time for our (almost one year old) son. (and for us to travel with him so far...)

The Chalet was built by the owner and he had help from some local specialists. The result is a fine piece of Swiss craftmanship where authentic Swiss-style design (and materials) meets present day luxury. The pictures are 100% accurate.

We made this booking based on previous reviews and we're glad we did! We contacted the owner prior to our visit and let them know that we would be travelling with an infant. One room was turned into a nursery and they also provided a 'baby chair'.

Combined with the above, the great hospitality of the owners made our stay one of the best ever in Switzerland!

Ski: At the entrance of Grengiols you bring the Bettmeralp lifts up into the great snow fun *** The Aletsch ski area, a fantastic powder snow paradise, offers incomparable snow conditions and slopes for the whole family: 99 km of pistes, freeriding in front of a magnificent mountain scenery, cross country skiing on Bettmersee, night skiing at the Bettmeralplift on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
