About Helena Francis

We love our apartment and truly enjoy opening its doors to tourists so they can enjoy their stay in the best place with the best views.

Helena Francis purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Helena Francis chose Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau

It has everything you may need, is the perfect place to come back after a day in the mountains, feels like home, is very comfortable and is located in a unique part of Lauterbrunnen.

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is in one of the buildings (one of out of only two in the area) with undisrupted views from the Valley, mountains and water falls.

What more can I say!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first of 3 VRBO properties we rented on our trip and it was a wonderful place to start our trip! As the other reviewers have said the property is well equipped, spotlessly clean, comfortable, etc. What makes this property so special is the attention that Helena gives the renters. From beginning to end she is there to answer questions and help where she can. Our luggage did not arrive in Zurich with us and it was two days before we got it, but Helena offered to loan us anything we needed and was very helpful in explaining to the courier where to drop the bags. Thank you Helena!

The Camping Jungfrau is a two minute walk from the apartment and very handy after a day of hiking and activity when walking into town for dinner or beer seems impossible! The views from the apartment are the best in Lauterbrunnen. We are already figuring out how to come back!

A perfect property in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

It's difficult to add much to 43 five star reviews at the time of writing (make that 44 now)! What can be said that's not already been written before about how great this apartment is. All I can really say is that I can confirm the reviews are all completely right! Lauterbrunnen has to be one of the most beautiful villages in the world and this apartment has to be in the best location in the village.

The views down the valley are unbelievable, with the incredible Staubbach waterfall feeling almost like it's touching distance away from the front door of the chalet. The chalet is easy to get to, easy parking (if you have a car), far enough out of the main village to be peaceful and quiet, but close enough for convenience of the shops, railway, buses and cable car.

The campsite right next door is also really convenient, with its shop and restaurant (which is well worth visiting) within 5-minutes walk.

The apartment itself is absolutely immaculate with everything you could require for your holiday supplied. Really well-equipped and everything is such high quality. This is a really luxurious, premium holiday apartment and I couldn't think of a single fault with it.

Finally the owner, Helena, who lives close by and came to the property to welcome us on our first day. Extremely friendly, welcoming and full of advice. All the communication with her - from the very first message through Homeaway right up to meeting her at the property was perfect.

One of the best holiday rentals we've ever stayed in!

Breathtakingly beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Excellent first impression - so clean and welcoming. Hosts made every effort to answer our questions prior to our holiday through emails and then also during our holiday. The apartment gave us the most incredible views of the mountains with snow on them. We would strongly recommend this apartment to anyone considering a stay in Lauterbrunnen. It has every convenience imaginable and is so very comfortable with lovely furniture and beds with luxurious mattresses and pillows. We would definitely stay here again if travelling to Switzerland. Our thanks to the owners of this apartment for making our stay so wonderful.

Absolutely fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Already our third visit to the Francis flat. The apartment is spacious, very clean and well equipped. Lauterbrunnen offers countless opportunities for hiking, cycling and day trips. An incredibly beautiful area! The owner is very welcoming and helpful, the beds are made and the wine is ready :). Ten out of ten! Tip: take the first train (7.00 am) to the Jungfraujoch. Ridiculously expensive but worth every penny. Once in your life: do!

Highlight of our 1 month Europe trip!

  • 5 of 5

WOW! What can I say but wow! What an amazing, beautiful place to stay.

Helena was so very professional from the very beginning and made me feel comfortable booking my first ever homeaway apartment. Everything from the agreement to the helpful information and instructions made the whole process so smooth and easy. She even went out of her way to give me additional directions to where i had to meet Airtime Paragliding before our paraglide in the valley.

The location is to die for!!!!! Soooo incredibly stunning. The pictures are spot on and a realistic look at what you will be getting if you book with Helena.

The apartment has everything you could possibly want or need and more. The wine and biscuits were a lovely touch. Helena and her daughter were lovely and we look forward to staying again in the future. I would not look anywhere else and cannot wait to come back!

Truly Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We had a rubbish week of weather and our daughter was ill for some of the week, but in spite of that we had the most fantastic holiday in this amazing apartment! What really made it for us (apart from Helena's attention to detail, warm welcome and lovely bottle of wine) was being able to lounge around on the balcony looking at the incredible views from the comfort of the new sun lounger. Even when it was pouring we were able to be out there and drinking in the alpine scenery - low cloud made it dramatic in a different way.

The apartment was beautifully clean and extremely well equipped. We can't wait to come back, and have already booked for next year!

Thanks Helena!
