Wengen chalet description

Wengen is situated on the foot of the magnificent Jungfrau on a wind sheltered, sunny terrace on an altitude of 1274 meters. It is the perfect chocolate box Swiss village complete with swimming pool, mini-golf, ice skating, shops restaurants and of course the famous Eiger, Jungfrau and Monch. The Chalet has been built on a sunny slope in the area of the Schiltwald, just outside Wengen village close to end of Lauberhornen downhill ski race.

                                            Wonderful place to stay for a week in a quiet place with wonderful views and many options for hiking and sight seeing. Chalet has everything you need for a comfortable stay. 15 min walk from the train station on a paved path, so no problem with roller bags. Kitchen well equipped and Coop in downtown Wengen has everything you might need (food, etc.) We had several clear sunny days with stunning views. But bring a rain coat. We will go back to escape the hectic daily life in Paris.

                                            This was our first trip to Switzerland and we choose the perfect place to call home for a week. The chalet lived up to everything that was printed about it, but the views and the serenity of area far surpassed any expectations that we had. The walk from Wengen was a bit challenging with suitcases, but by the end of the week we took it in stride. It was very helpful to know ahead of time that we could get provisions from the coop grocery in Wengen, as prices in Switzerland are a bit high to us Americans. The decor of the house was lovely. It had everything we needed for cooking and was quite cozy on those cool nights. One week was not nearly enough and our hope is to return one day soon.

                                            Wengen is an absolutely wonderful and wonderous place. The vistas are incredible and the Eiger is immense. The chalet is also wonderful. It is clean, well appointed, modern and spacious. They have internet, a blueray and a flat screen for nights when you need to rest. The views from the open living space and balconies are awesome. You can look to the peaks or the valley floor far below. The walk to town is also magnificent along a winding road with a slight grade that seems to lean over the valley below. Wengen itself is charming. The surrounding mountains are massive and one trip would never suffice to see all there is to see in Wengen, Lauterbrunnen, Murren or Grindelwald to name a few villages. I will return for sure. There is much more to see - winter or summer. Wengen is a top 5 place to see and I have been all over the world. You will never forget this place.

                                            Had a great stay in January. Modern, spacious with great facilities. Everyone enjoyed the sauna. Perhaps a bit far out for shopping but good for a visit to Mary's Cafe.

                                            Recommended for: Romantic getaway, families with teenagers, adventure seekers, sightseeing.

                                            Well we were looking for a quiet getaway in the mountains and that is what we got, a 5 day peaceful idyll. We arrived on December 7, and be advised that this is about as off-season as you can get. Most hotels and restaurants in Wengen were closed - and many of the stores. This was OK for us, and I'm sure by the start of the ski season the village was buzzing. The chalet was excellent and more than met our expectations. It was spacious, clean, well appointed and as advertised had those spectacular views towards Murren. We liked that it was outside Wengen and as other visitors have noted, the walk into the village was beautiful, especially after a new dusting of snow. Malcolm was more than helpful as we made our booking and asked for advice etc. The Eiger restaurant was about the only one open and we had a pleasant lunch there - we would recommend it. Trips up to Jungfraujoch and Schilthorn were spectacular, but we could have given Interlaken a miss. All-in-all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and, while we were only two, six could be comfortably accommodated. Perhaps we will return, to ski or hike - we hope so.

                                            Recommended for: Romantic getaway, families with teenagers, tourists without a car.

                                            This a five-star chalet, without question. It is extremely well-appointed, spacious, has glorious views, is warm and welcoming, and is child friendly. We have given it four stars because we had one or two minor issues, but were just unlucky, I suppose. We arrived late at night to find there was no hot water, and it was too late to contact anybody. We did so the next morning and it was fixed in the afternoon, but we had the first night and morning without showers. Also, the sauna never heated up adequately - not sure why. That said, we found this a perfect holiday home for a family and would recommend it without question. the lfot space is great for kids, and the two main bedrooms suited us perfectly. If two couples go, there may be a fight over the rooms, however, as one has a glorious view and a double bed, the other does not have the view and has two singles in different parts of the room which cannot be pushed together. The chairlift was a fairly easy walk (about 8 mins with kids) and the stroll to town, although quite long, was extremely pleasant - especially the walk home after a filling dinner. It's traffic free, except for taxis, and winds through the woods. all you can hear is the snow crunching underfoot. There are no shops near the chalet, so any shopping needs to be done in town which involves a relatively expensive taxi ride back, so I would suggest stocking up once early on if you plan to self cater. Cooking facilities are the best I've encountered in a self-cater chalet, and all the utensils you might need are provided. Malcolm was always prompt in dealing with email messages from us. Our only minor gripe, whcih would probably not affect most renters, was that he couldn't accept credit card payment. We do not live in the UK and it was a little complicated makign a bank transfer in Swiss Francs. All in all, a really delightful chalet with the space to take a large group in comfort.

                                            Owner response: Many thanks for the review. Tenants can boost hot water supply if needed. Sauna can be made very hot indeed using combination of closing 1 or both air vents and water on rocks!

                                            we stayed in this chalet . it was really pretty and beautifully designed and furnished. close to the road and a short walk from the skiilifts (which you can ski to down the road) The walk from the main town is beautiful along a little path through the woods and the view accross to murren side of the valley is spectaculer. the chalet is modern clean and spacious with a fantastic master bedroom.

                                            Perfect for Christmas or any other time I should imagine, we were lucky enough to spend a family Christmas at racers retreat last year. Wengen is a fairytale place, especially when covered in snow. We loved walking from the chalet either winding up to the little farms or down into the village itself - a short walk among pines, streams and the stunning views of the mountains and valleys. No cars except the odd tractor and electric taxi. Wengen has just a little bit of everything, grocers, bakers, restauants and few select shops - it was so refreshing to be spending this time of year in a totally non commercial and charning timeless place. The chalet itself was perfect, good not to be in the main part of the village but tucked away with awe inspiring views in every direction. The interior is of the very highest standard and very clean. The wooden floors (underfloor heating), well equipped kitchen, the lovely balconies and 2 really good bathrooms served our party of 5 very well. I loved the cuckoo clock in the main room - not squawky at all - and didn't keep anyone awake either. There is so much to do in Wengen, Winter or Summer and the chalet is perfectly placed near a chair lift or the short walk into Wengen where the mountain trains run with startling efficiency. But one could just as happily relax with a dvd or a book and watch the light on the mountains change all around you.

                                            In June of last summer my husband and I traveled around Europe with our daughter, her husband and our two granddaughters, 17 and 18 years old. Staying in 5 Racers Chalet for five nights was a highlight of our trip! On arriving at the Lauterbrunnen train station we bought six-day passes so we could easily travel around the area. In Wengen after we arrived we took the local "taxi" to the chalet as it was easier with our luggage which included groceries for our stay. However the trail from town to the chalet is gorgeous and a very easy walk. Just know the trains are on time, so plan ahead if you are on a tight schedule. Photos can't possibly do justice to the beauty of the area. The setting for the chalet is fantastic and the view from the living room and the master bedroom is spectacular. The loft is accessed by a ladder, but our teen granddaughters loved their private space. The second bedroom is smaller than the master suite. It's great for kids, but if you are traveling with adult couples be prepared to make a decision about who gets the "room with a view!" The kitchen is very well equipped and we cooked some great meals. As far as grocery shopping you can use the small cart they provide for transporting your purchases. It's great having a washer and dryer but can be a bit tricky figuring out how to run the washer. We loved riding the trains all over the area. Hiking and bicycling were incredible. The bicycle ride from Murren to Gimmelwald to the valley is awesome. We had fantastic weather and the flowers were blooming all over! After all our city touring it was great to stay where it was beautiful, quiet and peaceful! The property is spotlessly clean, well-maintained, and it's decor is charming. Customer service was great and I highly recommend this property! We loved it so much that we are staying there again this summer with our other daughter, her husband and two 12 year old grandchildren!

                                            Our party of seven (3 couples and 1 teenager) have just returned from a week in Wengen - 5 Racers retreat to be precise. Just a few words to let all prospective tennents know how lovely it is. A smart new chalet with magnificent views and quiet location. With all amenities it is warm, clean,pretty and very comfortable. It would have been perfection to have another shower-room for the third bedroom. Picky I know, but as there was 3 couples plus 1 it would have been better. However, that really is a small point - the rest was wonderful! 2kms from the villiage may sound daunting to some, but one of the most beautiful walks I have ever done - and not hard! For the less active there is the chairlift next to the famous Mary's cafe 400m (just round the corner) from which you can join the train at Allmend to go either up to Kleine Scheidegg (and beyond) or down to the village. You can even join the tail-end of a blue run that takes you into the heart of the village! Malcolm the chalet was great!
