Great location in a stunning setting.Was a memorable experience for all in the family.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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 .

Very well equipped apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment had everything we could have wished for. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and the dining area was big enough for six of us to eat comfortably. The lounge was large and comfortable and was equipped with loads of DVDs, CDs, books etc. Two of the bedrooms were very spacious; the third was a little cramped but it did have an en-suite bathroom. There was lots of space in the apartment as well as facilities for storing skis etc. The area is one we have visited many times in summer and winter and is perfect for walkers and winter sports enthusiasts. The bus stop immediately outside is a real bonus when wearing ski boots!

Owner's Response: Thank you Andy for the nice review - it is true Lauterbrunnen is attractive for summer and winter activities . Yes the ski bus stop just outside the building is a an advantage for skiers . It is true that the third bed room looks small . It is because we built a second bathroom 3 years ago with two additional cub boards . This room was big before but had to sacrifice some space due to the additional construction - The dining table can be enlarged if necessary . Wishing you all the best .

A little piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Augustine & Celine's apartment was absolutely wonderful for our family of 5 - well-situated, comfortable, clean, quiet, with great amenities! It's about a 10 minute walk to train station & gondola, Coop grocery store and bakery; also walking distance to restaurants and stores. The apartment even has a shopping cart to haul your groceries home! Really appreciated having laundry facilities to use too! Beds were very comfortable. Wifi was great. The kitchen was well-equipped for preparing our meals! The apartment was spacious with plenty of room to relax.

Lauterbrunnen was the perfect "home base" from which to tour the Bernese Oberland: from the train station, we easily accessed the Schilthorn, Jungfraujoch, First, Schynige Platte, Männlichen to Kleine Scheidegg, Interlaken, Bern and Zurich.

Augustine & Celine were most helpful, suggesting sights and hikes, and explaining how everything worked in the apartment.

After our delayed flight and hence later-than-expected arrival in Lauterbrunnen, we really appreciated Augustine's offer to drive us from the train station to the apartment!

We miss eating dinner on the balcony, gazing upon Staubbach Falls and the mountains, listening to the rush of water!

We miss hearing the sheep's bells ringing musically as they grazed outside the kitchen window!

Our stay here in Lauterbrunnen was truly in a little piece of heaven!

Highly recommend this apartment!

Wonderfully convenient, very affordable and clean.

  • 5 of 5

The title says it all, the location for an apartment in lauterbrunnen is about as good as it gets, 5 minute walk to train station and cable to Murren. Switzerland is an expensive country to visit but this apartment makes it very affordable, especially for those with large families or couples traveling together, as it sleeps 6. Another cost savings is the fully equipped kitchen. For me, an American, it is always an eye opener at the high cost of eating in restaurants in Switzerland. We bought reasonably priced groceries at the coop and ate most meals in the apartment.

We were a little concerned about noise due to its proximity to Horner pub, but this proved to be unwarranted. There was some noise but no more than other places we have stayed at, as we sleep with the windows open and the heart of lauterbrunnen is a small compact town.

The apartment has not been renovated in a while but who cares, it has been meticulously maintained and is spotless. We loved the large TV and comfortable couch, between that and the beautiful views it made relaxing at the end of a long day of sightseeing and hiking something to look forward to.

I stayed many times at one of lauterbrunnen's more/most expensive and nicest hotel over the past 15 years and for what it is worth the next time I'm in lauterbrunnen I'll be contacting the Parani's to stay in their lovely apartment.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review - being close to the railway station , people can reach their destinations easily whether to the top or other parts of Jungrau regions. It is true we do not hear noise from the pub as it is quite far away. We give also give some tips to our guests regarding cheap places to eat , on hiking paths, places to visit if they have Swiss pass etc.. You are always welcome for a second visit to complete the hiking paths which you have not done so far .

Well equipped 3 bedroom apartment, fantastic views and location

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in Augustine and Celine's lovely apartment in June, with our family group of 4 adults, 1 child and 1 baby. The location is great, just a short walk from the centre of Lauterbrunnen and the train station, and we greatly appreciated Augustine's help to transport our luggage from the station on arrival. The 3 bedroom apartment is very well equipped, the kitchen is fantastic and we prepared quite a few meals there. The bedrooms were very comfortable and it was handy to have the 2 bathrooms, we also appreciated the baby cot set up for us in the main bedroom, thank you!

Most of all, the views were fantastic, we absolutely loved having the waterfall so close by! We also enjoyed many child friendly excursions, including the walk from Grutschalp to Winteregg (where there is a fantastic restaurant with children's playground), the walk from Murren to Gimmelwald (another great playground), a trip on the train up to Wengen, and also the cable cars up to Schilthorn where the children played with snow for the first time.

Lauterbrunnen is a really lovely village, and we would highly recommend a stay in Augustine's apartment!
