Property description

We look forward to hosting you in our new luxury ground floor apartment. French doors open up to the patio and garden, with a small stream only footsteps away. The open-plan modern kitchen is fully equipped with a ceramic hob, oven, dish washer, microwave and coffee machine. The living room offers dining space for 6 as well as a flat screen TV, DVD player and wireless internet access. A double bed in the stylish master bedroom and twin beds in the second bedroom comfortably sleep a total of four, with a possibility of extending the sleeping capacity to six if you count in the sofa bed. Enclosed garage parking is included. The apartment is suitable for families with children as well as the elderly and it is easily accessed by wheelchair.
A two minute walk brings you to the (ski) bus stop, ten minutes to the village. Lauterbrunnen is the departure point to the most spectacular railways in Europe and and beautiful alpine hikes.

Summer season: Whether you want a relaxing escape or an action packed adventure, Lauterbrunnen has it all on offer. The Jungfrau region has around 500 kilometres of hiking trails of varying lengths and difficulty with fantastic opportunities to spot wildlife such as ibex and chamois or various alpine birds. Lauterbrunnen is the departure point for the most spectacular mountain cog railways and cable cars in Europe. The mountain restaurants are open throughout the year offering breathtaking views. Cycle routes vary from gentle along the valley floor to steep mountain passes or proper downhill tracks. Bicycles are easily rented in the village and are allowed on most mountain trains. The lakes have lidos and beaches all along the shores and there is a heated open air swimming pool in the village. For those who want more adrenalin, white water rafting, canoeing, mountaineering, paragliding, hang gliding, bungy jumping and skydiving are all available in the surrounding area.

Winter season: Winter in Lauterbrunnen is ideal for skiers and non-skiers alike: There are 213km of pistes for skiers and snowboarders and 45 chair lifts, cable cars and trains to choose from in the Jungfrau region. Lauterbrunnen is nestled in the valley between the ski resorts of Mürren and Wengen and offers easy and fast access to both areas. You can follow the tracks of famous skiers on the Lauberhorn run, the world’s longest downhill race track, or, snow permitting, ski all 16km down from the top of the Schilthorn to the village of Lauterbrunnen. A cross country trail skirts the apartment. For non skiers there are more than 100km of winter hiking trails, 5okm of sledding trails and a couple of snowshoe trails. Hiking passes are available and allow non skiers to enjoy the mountain restaurants, the breathtaking views and the toboggan runs, as well as some of the most scenic walks in the alps. Other activities include ice skating, ice climbing, curling, heli skiing and the indulging in wellness.

Suitability: Aside from a 10cm step at the building’s entrance, there are no stairs at all, making the apartment wheelchair accessible and suitable for people with physical disabilities or families with small children. The doors are wide enough and the master bedroom has plenty of room. Specialized equipment can be rented. There is an indoor heated place to leave prams. Having small children ourselves, we understand the needs of parents and have many extras to offer. Please contact us with your requests. Starting from the apartment, there is an easy, flat and wheelchair (& pushchair) compatible trail. Public transport in the region (buses, trains & cable cars) is also easy and user friendly.

Lauterbrunnen is probably the most impressive glaciated valley in the Alps, inspiring people such as Goethe and Tolkien. No less than 72 waterfalls cascade down the mountains. The village centre is a mere 10 min. stroll along the river, where you may find restaurants and shops, banks and the tourist office. Across the street there is a small convenience store. Lauterbrunnen is a perfect base for your adventures: spectacular mountain railways and cable cars whisk you past Wengen, famous for the Lauberhorn ski race, on to Kleine Scheidegg with breathtaking views of the Eiger, the Mönch and the Jungfrau and on to the Jungfraujoch, the highest train station in Europe. Across the valley, Mürren awaits you with even more dramatic views, and 2 cable cars further you reach Schilthorn with its revolving restaurant. The area has hundreds of miles of summer hiking trails and endless skiing options, with a cross country piste skirting the apartment. All airports connect easily by rail.

Other Activities: Canyoning

Year Purchased: 2009

About: Apart from our unusual names, we are bound by a love of this area and the outdoors. We met in Interlaken in 2004. About D: A true Irishman although I have been in this area for over ten years. My love of snow brought me here, but with time I have come to appreciate the summers more and more. I am a qualified rafting and canyoning guide and work mostly in rope access. About Kashi: My passport is Belgian and although I was born there, I have spent most of my life abroad. My parents instilled me with an unquenchable lust for travel and adventure. Since growing up in Nepal, I have lived and worked in the outdoors in Spain, Mexico, Nepal, Italy and Austria but decided to settle in this beautiful area. The last six years I have been employed as a photographer, hiking and snowshoeing guide, ski instructor, tour guide and event planner. Currently I am mostly a mom, the toughest and most rewarding job ever! About Keanu: Born in Interlaken in 2008, I am a Swiss-born Belgian Paddy. I share my parents' love for water and I really like the Octonauts, diggers and my wolf Igor. I go crazy for cheddar cheese, and love to talk on skype. About Kiran: Born in April 2010, I am the latest addition to the family. I'm a happy kid, I refuse to acknowledge that I'm the youngest and I love all animals We are enamored with this area and there is not a day that goes by that we do not think we are the luckiest people to be able to live here.

Why Lauterbrunnen:
Chosen for it's unique location; perfect for summer activities and nestled between fabulous ski resorts, we decorated the apartment just like we would like to find a holiday home. The kitchen is very well equipped (we love to cook and eat well) and we have all the accessories you may want for small children. It's well connected via public transport but in a quiet area. It's a perfect starting point for all your Swiss adventures!
