About the owner: Now living in Deal, Kent when not in Wengen. We play golf in UK and when in Wengen we ski if the weather is nice and enjoy the Village and the views when it is not. We have 2 daughters and 2 sons and 10 grandchildren. In the Winter months, the oldest children ski and the younger ones toboggan when they come to stay. In the Summer months there is a great deal for the children to enjoy including "trotti biking, outdoor parks, boating and swimming etc.
Why the Owner Chose Wengen: We knew we wanted to buy a place in Wengen because I had been visiting there for a very long time. We were so lucky that Chalet Bijouli was available when we were looking and knew it was 'the place' the moment we walked in. The 3 double bedrooms are well equipped with fitted cupboards and basins and the sitting room has a wonderful log fire and there is a dining room. The kitchen is separate and the whole provides a warm and comfortable house with some antique furniture in the living room but with a modern kitchen and bathrooms. There is a large south and west facing terrace with views across the Lauterbrunnen Valley towards Murren and a rockery garden.
