Excellent location for skiing
Excellent location. Well equipped. Great communication with owner. Would recommend.
Thank you Julie for your comments and appreciation.
Hope to see you next year.
Augustin is a great host and very responsive. He went the extra miles to let us know the different events in town so that we can enjoy them. We were lucky to arrived August 1st and was able to enjoy the fireworks!
The apartment was very comfortable for the six of us. It has everything we need and with a great view. WIFI signal was very good! Kitchen is fully equipped.
We had a wonderfully time and definitely book it again if we come back in the future. Thank you again ….
Thank you Tsing Chen for your review appreciating your stay in Lauterbrunnen . Glad to know you enjoyed your stay in Lauterbrunnen. If you had come one day earlier you could have participated in the National Day celebrations in Interlaken
which starts at 10 with folk lore singing, flag throwers, alpine pipe music , speech of the Gemeinde president in 4 languages, arrival of the flyers from the mountains holding 26 flags and landing on the Hoheweg grounds etc. At 14 hrs you can also see a procession with traditional dresses, William Tell characters, cows, bell ringers, and other items of history . During the Casino ground celebrations you get free Rugen Brau beer of the locality. But still you had time to enjoy the fireworks near the waterfall from the balcony which is indeed a wonderful spectacle. Wish you all the best for the future.
We had a wonderful week staying in this apartment! The location is absolutely perfect for accessing any location in the vicinity, and the view of the Staubbach waterfall is ideal. We very much enjoyed sitting and eating out on the balcony. The apartment itself is comfortable. It had everything we could have asked for, and we were able to save money by using the kitchen to cook most of our meals. Augustine and Celine were kind and helpful both before and during our stay. It was raining when we arrived and when we left, and Augustine gave us a ride both to and from the train station. If you find yourself stuck inside on a rainy day, the apartment has a huge selection of movies for you to choose from. I'm sure we'll be coming back in the future!
Thank you Christina for the nice review.You had rain on arrival and departure..This year we had rain and high temperature.. But though it rains here it does last long as sunshine appears after some time.But as we are in a high area, it is still cool .Hope you visited the children's park near the church which is only 150 ms away.You are welcome again for a second visit to discover new areas in Lauterbrunnen.
Excellent apartment in great location
The Parani's apartment was extremely clean, in a great location with beautiful views and is well-furnished. Although we didn't have too much time to read, there was a wealth of books on travel plus many other topics. There were also a number of interesting CD's to watch.
A short walk takes you to the center of town for restaurants, shops, and Tourist Info center. A very short walk from there takes you to the train station, from which you can go anywhere in Switzerland as well as all of Europe.
One minor complaint - The Parani's could offer a little more help with the complicated recycling process in Lauterbrunnen.
All things considered, a wonderful place to stay. We would return in a minute!
Thank you Joe for this nice review . It is true our apartment is situated
near the waterfall and the view from the rooms and sitting room balcony is enchanting especially when it is lit up at night . The books and DVD s are our collection and we leave them for the guests to read and watch if they have time. Many of our guests travel from Lauterbrunnen to other parts of Switzerland and return on the same day. Some even go to France and Italy to have another culture to experience. It is true the re cycling is a little complicated for people from other countries and continents. Hence we try to explain when they arrive on the day of arrival, then there is note hanging in the apartment hanging which explains every
process and then one day before we send a email to remind them if they have forgotten anything. We have observed that you have followed all the procedures and wish to thank you for that . Best wishes for your next trip .
Good layout for our party of six with a great location on the north end of Lauterbrunnen. The owner provided everything that we needed to prepare meals. It was like home away from home with plenty of space to spread out. Location was perfect for all of the different mountain hiking trails that we enjoyed.
Thank you Robert for the short and nice review. Glad to know that you enjoyed Lauterbrunnen - There are 76 walking trails to discover for good hikers . We try to explain the routes with a special map giving time, route, etc. When you look at the map you can decide whether to go up hiking or come down hiking - Here you are in the midst of nature - the walk near Kleine scheidegg is spectacular seeing the mighty trio Eiger, Moensch, and Jungfrau - you will not see these scenes in any other part of the world - good luck in your future discoveries --
Great location in a stunning setting.Was a memorable experience for all in the family.
Nice place in a quiet and calm area.The train station is just a 10 min walk with easy access to jungfrau ,schilthorn and interlaken.The apartment is quite spacious and nicely maintained.The views from balconies overlooking the waterfall is amazing.The owners of the property,Mr n Mrs Parani are quite helpful.
Lautterbrunnen is a village blessed with natural beauty.It is picteresque in every angle with many waterfalls and overlooking the snowy mountains. The only disadvantage of the area that most shops including the one mini supermarket in the area close at 6:30 in the evening.Always best to do the late shopping at Interlaken which is only 20 mins away.
Thanks for the nice review . Glad to know that you have enjoyed your stay in Lauterbrunnen. Yes, indeed Lauterbrunnen is blessed with natural beauty. It is the best place to start your journeys to the high mountains and also to other cities of Switzerland if you have a Swiss Railway Pass. You have public transport from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen till the middle of the night. Here they keep changing the hours from Winter to Summer. It is true they close early during winter time . But in summer they close at 20 hours . One good thing is that prices are the same as in lower areas and COOP is the second biggest supermarket in Switzerland .
