Perfect for family

  • 5 of 5

Nice flat with two bedrooms (+2 bathrooms), separated by lounge with seating/eating place, TV+DVD, HiFI. Kitchenette with all amenities, free coffe capsules, Small balcony but with nice view. All in modern building + pool + gym, superclean and perfectly maintained. All in the cosy Chateau d'Oex, driving distance from Geneve and Gstaad. The owners will want to have a direct talk with you and you'll find them plesant and helpful.

Overall a very plesant ski (or just relaxing break). Highly recommended

Chateau D'Oex Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Excellent apartment. Very well equipped. Superb mountain views. Access to many walks and attractions in the area. Within walking distance of the train station which gives access to a wider area easily. Only downside if you are a walker is the steep walk up to the apartment. Excellent leisure facilities.
