Just spent a week at this beautiful apartment (april), absolute bliss. The appartment itself is beautifully decorated with everything that you could ever wish for. As soon as you enter the accommodation you feel completely relaxed - quite extraordinairy. There is no need to leave the village of Chateau D'oex as everything is there and it's so enchanting. Beautiful walks from behind and infront of the apartment take you up to the top of snow capped mountains looking down onto green meadows filled with wild flowers. Return to the apartment for a siesta (think you need it after all the walking) and listen to the local church bells ringing halting everyone for lunch. We spent a week and were so refreshed, looking forward to returning. Can't rate this apartment more highly. Thank you for letting us share the experience!

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

We were really pleased with the apartment and its facilities. It has a magnificent terrace: a perfect place for relaxing in the sun with a panoramic view across the valley. Chateau D is also a very good location with a character of its own. Sorry to come home.

Beautiful location and perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5

Pamela’s apartment was the perfect apartment and location for our family Christmas holiday! It was magical and Pamela made us feel very welcome. From the Christmas decorations to the perfectly stocked kitchen we could not have chosen a better place. The village had everything we needed too. It is centrally located too. We skied in Château d’Oex. Saneen Moser, Interlaken , Gstaad and visited the Christmas markets in Montreux and the village of Gruyères. We will return

A beautiful apartment, all just as described plus something else that no description can really convey, and that is the feeling of warmth and welcome one has on first entering the apartment. We immediately felt at home and loved every minute of our stay there and only wish we could have stayed longer. As we were due to arrive in the evening Pam had thoughtfully arranged for a welcome pack to be left for us which included everything and more we needed for our first night so all we had to do was sit back and enjoy the comfort and charm of the apartment, and take in its stunning position overlooking the village. As someone who has known Chateau d'Oex for many years I would say that the fabulous panoramic views the apartment has over the village, the lovely valley and surrounding mountains cannot be beaten.

Angelo also was everything we had been lead to expect from earlier reviews - friendly, helpful, courteous, efficient and thorough - the Residence itself and its excellent facilities beautifully maintained and spotless at all times.

As well as exploring all that Chateau d'Oex itself has to offer we had days out via the cable car onto the local ski slopes at La Braye taking in the fabulous views, the restaurant, snowboarding and tobogganing, trips to Montreux by the panoramic express through glorious mountain scenery and to Gstaad, Les Diablarets and the amazing Glacier 3000 with its new twin peak walkway and panoramic restaurant, and to Gruyeres for the cheesemaking, the mediaeval castle and H R Giger museum. Truly something for all the family.

Highly recommended.

Perfect Break!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to spend a week in this apartment at the end of May, though unfortunately the weather this year had a different idea. This made us appreciate the apartment feeling so homely all the more. There is lots of space, very comfy, a pool & sauna and regardless of what the weather is doing the views, especially from the huge balcony are breathtaking. When the sun makes an appearance there is lots to do in and around Chateau d'Oex. We had a lovely train journey to Montreux, a great visit to Gstaad and Interlaken plus there are endless trails and paths to explore and at the end of it all there is nothing better to come back to the apartment and have a nice glass of wine!

Wonderful winter holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent in this lovely appartment two weeks of the New Year holidays and can confirm - it is really wonderful place. The view is stunning, the city is very comfortable for having a rest - this is not loudy touristic place but with all you may need in the same time. The same I can say about Pamela's appartment - the perfect one with the very welcoming attitude of both landlady and manager.

Thank you!

Owner's Response: We visited this beautiful part of the world in Feb 2013 and had a fantastic time. Not only was the weather perfect for skiing, Pam's apartment was a cosy home from home: extremely well equiped, lovely and warm with spectacular views of the surrounding area. The shared facilities were also top notch: the swimming pool and sauna are great, with more stunning views of the valley. We didn't use the honesty bar or lounge but both were clean and well-kept. We were also lucky enough to bump into some fellow residents, who were warm and friendly. Our week in Chateau d'oex was truly magical and one that we will never forget. Thank you very much Pam! Amy and Mark Dickin :-)
