Outstanding Apartment with Outstanding Owners

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is fantastic! My husband, young daughter, and I stayed here in May. It is spacious and modern with spectacular views of waterfalls (and, at least while we were there, sheep frequently grazing outside the window). Helena maintains the apartment in spotless condition, and she has thought of everything anyone could need while visiting, including a goodie basket featuring items from her and her husband’s countries of origin. There is plenty of storage space as well as a washer and dryer. We all slept comfortably here, and, while we were only three people, there is plenty of room for a group to spread out here, especially with the upstairs loft and outside deck. The apartment was convenient to everything we wanted to do in the area. I also want to note that we were briefly in Helena’s other property, but because there happened to be construction going on nearby during our stay, she spent 3 hours preparing this apartment for us and moving us so that the construction, which was no fault of hers, would not bother us. In fact, Helena is very responsive to all communication. She really went above and beyond, and I highly recommend a stay at one of her properties.

Perfect for our May hiking/sightseeing vacation

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at a lot of rentals, and Helena was one of the best hosts we've ever had. She made an effort to meet us and give us helpful advice on the area, and was extremely knowledgeable and warm. The property itself was conveniently located, spotlessly clean, comfortable, bright, and spacious. I will definitely try to stay at Helena's next time we're in Lauterbrunnen.

Simply perfect and beautiful chalet in Lauterbrunn

  • 5 of 5

The moment we made our booking to the end of our stay, Helena was amazing. Every question answered with enthusiasm and helpful hints

We arrived in their chalet and we were blown away! Great location, clean, well stocked and an amazing view. We walked everywhere and were able to catch the town shuttle right outside the chalet when needed

To sum it up, our stay in Lauterbrunnen and our new friendship with Helena, was the highlight of our 5 week European vacation. We can't wait to get back to Chalet Francis and Switzerland !

Stunning

  • 5 of 5

Helena's attention to detail to ensure you have a wonderful stay is second to none. The apartment is spotlessly clean, furnished beautifully and has everything you could possibly need for a wonderful stay in Lauterbrunnen. It's position with views down the valley is stunning.The bus stop in right outside the apartment block for easy transfer to and from the station. We have been coming to Lauterbrunnen for some years now and if we can book in to one of Helena's properties it is always our preference. Thank you Helena for a beautiful stay in a beautiful place.

Chalét Maravilhoso

  • 5 of 5

O chalet é uma gracinha, super bem montado, não nos faltou nada. Muito limpo e organizado. Mas o destaque vai para a Helena, uma pessoa daquelas que não existe em toda esquina. Super atenciosa e preocupada com o nosso bem estar na nossas férias. Foram dias lindos, começamos o ano de 2017 muito bem.

Esperamos um dia retornar a Suíça.

Wonderful flat in fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

We had breakfast on the balcony on the first morning of our stay drinking in the views of snow-covered peaks whilst we drank our coffee and ate croissant. It was perfect. This was our first experience of self-catering in the Bernese Oberland and Helena could not have made it easier for us. Both before and during our stay she was there with information and advice: her 'welcome' visit just after we arrived ensured that we felt at home very quickly (making it very difficult to leave at the end of our holiday).

The flat has very high standards of cleanliness and comfort ... we looked forward to our evening meals whilst we absorbed the breathtaking scenery all around us on walks and rail journeys during the day. Occasionally we ate out, building up an appetite for the rosti and bratwurst available at nearby restaurants. Although it is on the very edge of the town, access to the Coop, farm and a small local shop is easy. You do not have to go far for the regular bus service or a quick walk along the nearby river will take you into town.

The scenery is spectacular. The regional pass that allows you to travel on buses, most trains and cable cars, gondolas and lake steamers, is a worthwhile investment leaving any visitor to the region in awe of the landscape and the engineering that provides access to it. We felt it a real privilege to be able to holiday in such an area of outstanding beauty and an even greater privilege to have the opportunity to return as we will do in 2017.
