A perfect place to spend Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a wonderful Christmas here. The apartment is cosy and warm, well equipped and furnished to a high standard. We were also delighted to find the apartment festively decorated with a Christmas tree which we very much appreciated. There are lovely views from the kitchen and two bedrooms and the sound of the running stream below was very relaxing. The spa facilities are very good and a perfect way to ease away the aches and pains after a hard day's snowboarding or skiing. La Soldanelle is extremely well managed by a lady called Maya who we found to be extremely kind and helpful during our stay. Chateau d'Oex itself is a very nice village with a supermarket, a range of lovely local shops and restaurants plus easy access to the slopes. We would have no hesitation in recommending a stay in Nick's wonderful apartment and hope to return ourselves in 2014.

A holiday at "Nick's"

  • 5 of 5

This is a superbly equipped apartment with magnificent views. It accommodates six adults comfortably and the outside balcony space faces the east and are therefore very nice for breakfast, from where you can enjoy the scenery that is even better than expected.

The apartment is situated about 700 meters from the centre of Chateau D'Oex, up a fairly steep hill, so if you don't take a car you need to be prepared for this. This was not a problem for us, as we went for some fresh air and exercise, both of which are in plentiful supply.

There are some fantastic walks to be enjoyed, limited only by fitness! The paths are very well signposted, giving a rough idea in hours / minutes of how far away your destination is.

If you have any energy left, the gym and pool in the "Hotel" block are both good.

Switzerland is quite expensive, but the local Co Op is well stocked, so eating at the apartment and enjoying the views was never a hardship.

A holiday at "Nick's" can be whatever you want it to be - relaxing in the sun, simply enjoying the views, walking, cycling and sightseeing - in any combination you wish.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday here and would have no hesitation recommending this apartment. We'll definitely be back.

Lovely stay in La Soldanelle in Chateau d'Oex

  • 5 of 5

We (family with 2 kids, age 7 and 4) stayed in La Soldanelle for 3 night and had a lovely time. The apartment is a great place: completely furnished (kitchen, TV DVD etc, more than enough towels) and a very nice atmosphere. We had breakfast every morning at the terrace in the sun, with an astonishing view on the river just aside the building, and the mountains. We also visited the swimming pool (and hot tub etc.) in the main building a few times. Chateau d'Oex is a nice little village, with the centre, a playground for the children and the railway station on walking distance. We made some nice daytrips by car and by train. Would really recommend the place.

Long Weekend in Chateau d'Oex

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this apartment for a weekends skiing in the Gstaad area. The accommodation was exactly as described - I was very impressed with the spacious yet warm layout and every comfort I needed was amply provided for. Everything was in very good order and clean. The facilities within the main building were excellent and the owners customer service was patient and thorough.

The village had its own unpretentious charm with a good bar and a good eatery with excellent steaks next to the station. Taking the train upto different lifts was a really civilised way to begin and end some full days skiing with my pass including this way of accessing the valley. I barely had to queue over the weekend and had no problem skiing some good mileage over some god pistes.

I would unhesitatingly recommend this property to my friends and family - I had an amazing time and can't wait to go back

Best apartment yet in Chateau d'Oex

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in area for 20 years so clearly like skiing in Gstaad region. First time at La Soldanelle and can fully recommend the accomodation and facilities. Nicks apartment is exactly as described, very well maintained and equipped and has excellent access and we would recommend it to anyone and Nick was very flexible over dates etc. Just a small note, bed 2 and sofabed are on floor 1 with their bathroom/toilet on ground floor. Was not a problem but worth thinking about re using stairs in night for young children or anyone unstable!
