We have visited Brienz several times before. This stay lived up to all our expectations, and more. The chalet is extremely well-equipped, with great attention to detail. There are excellent instructions on how to use the various appliances that come with the property, and there are outdoor games etc also available (including table tennis in the grounds). The kitchen / dining area in the upper apartment was very capacious for our family of six, and the living room was big enough for several activities to take place at the same time (e.g. card games, reading, conversation). The property is well-situated looking over the village of Brienz but with a walk of no more than 10 minutes to Migros or the Co-op for food. The view from the balcony of the upper apartment is wonderful. We had the ground floor apartment as well, and this proved a useful retreat for the two older members of the group. The owner is extremely helpful and kept in touch by email during the week in case we had any problems. Although the theoretical capacity of the chalet is higher, we'd suggest that 6 occupants is the ideal (unless there are very small children or babies present).
We loved staying at this beautiful, modern, and very comfortable chalet. It is well appointed, with everything one could need. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms quite nice, with plenty of hot water and great water pressure. The kitchen is well equipped, and it was nice to be able to do a load of laundry after several days of hiking. The wrap around deck is wonderful, with endless views of snow covered mountains. Bellwald is somewhat remote, but there is a little grocery store and bakery in the town, as well as places to eat. The chalet is practically next door to the Hotel Zur Alten Gasse, and their restaurant is superb. We spent most of our time here visiting the Alsetch Glacier from different view points, taking the gondalas up and/or down from Bettmeralp, Riederalp, and Fiescheralp, and enjoying fabulous hikes above, and in one case, right next to, the glacier. The Goms hanging bridge that connects Bellwald with Mühlebach is close by, and makes for another enjoyable hiking opportunity. This is really a great vacation destination!
