After a nail biting trip up the mountain, we arrived to a very friendly warm welcome from our hostess. The house faces the church and the steep pastures across the valley. We were surrounded by farm life. Cutting the hay and raking, including the use of scythes and pitchforks, the six cows living next door, and their friend....the cat. We loved our time watching the village life unfold from our spacious verandah, always something happening to keep us entertained. There are many beautiful walks in the Alps and Lake Lucerne is quite close. The house has everything to make you comfortable, and Renate was a wonderful and friendly source of information, on anything we asked. We had a wonderful week .
We stayed in the apartment in the first week of December in 2007... it is THE best place we have ever stayed. The views are breathtaking, and seemed to get more breathtaking by the day. Every morning that I woke up I would jump straight out of bed and open up the shutters to get a glimpse of the view.
We wanted for nothing, everything was there and more. The apartment was clean, spotless and looked after. The real fire was comforting and serene after a day out skiing and the cold. And the hot tub was amazing!
We also had lots and lots of snow, it didn't stop snowing for a good few days and was beautiful to watch the heavy snow through the panoramic windows whilst warming our toes in front of the fire.
I cannot wait to go back to this apartment... and we most definitely will!
The chalet owners are really friendly and helpful too.
