Chateau d'Oex chalet description

Surrounded with a forest and in front of the lake our 350 year old Heidi chalet in the Swiss Alps is offering a unique experience of authentic vacation close to nature and to many interesting attractions that the tourist area is offering. From the 3000 meter high glacier where you can ski even in august to the famous Cailler chocolate factory just next to the impressive castle and medieval village of Gruyère.
We are offering a fully equipped authentic kitchen including special machine to enjoy a Raclette or a Fondue.
Amazing view, rooms for children with games, an ancient wood craft working table with special tools, a fire-stove and the experience of cutting some wood for it, but yet also wifi, DVDs and music.
The house is few minutes from the lake and the river and you can enjoy many treks all over the mountains. 2 parking spaces are waiting for you outside the door together with complete private road and no neighbours. In the village you can get anything you need.
