About the property

Three-room apartment in the countryside, with far-sightedness and near Bern

Welcome to our more than 100 years Rieghaus with a big garden Cottage (freshly created in 2014). The charming 3 room apartment is located in the hamlet Bramberg above the village Neuenegg, about 12 km from Bern. By public transport Neuenegg is very easy to reach, but unfortunately it has no public transport to our house. On request we pick you up very much at the station in Neuenegg from. Directly from our house you can take wonderful walks and cycling trips. The Heart Route (a signposted cycle route) passes right by the house. Since the motorway can be reached in about 5 minutes, you can make of us from day trips. The house is situated on a small intersection, where the traffic is moderate. Bramberg is a beauty spot, in front of our house there is a restaurant. Here you can enjoy a good country kitchen, if you do not feel like cooking. In front of our house is only a farmhouse with a riding stable. You can also take riding lessons, or simply watch the bustle of horses if necessary.

The apartment is 65 m2, located on the ground floor and consists of a kitchen with a dining table, a living and dining room, and a bedroom. The bathrooms feature a bath and a shower. The apartment is nicely furnished and fully equipped. Of course you can also enjoy the garden. Facilities include a covered patio and a garden seating area available. Similarly, if you want to sunbathe, sun loungers are available.

The parking lot is right outside the apartment. We ourselves live on the 1st floor of Rieghauses and own a dog. If you are interested in photo, Jean- Claude has an appointment Photo courses.

Wonderful Swiss country retreat-

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights in this lovely and cozy country retreat in Bramberg just outside Bern. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and peaceful and the gardens at the doorstep are well tended and a lovely place to sit and enjoy the surrounding views any time of the day. The bed was very comfortable, the sitting area was a lovely place to look at maps and plan the next days adventuring, and the kitchen had everything we needed. Katrin was very helpful with touring suggestions and was a gracious support. Bramberg is a very brief train trip from Bern and the access from there to Interlaken and the Alps is a simple matter as well. The Lake of Murten is also close by for easy day trips as well. We highly recommend this cozy retreat!

Excellent Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent vacation in Switzerland and we strongly recommend your country rental.

Your apartment is very clean and comfortable and nicely furnished. It has everything you would need for a beautiful vacation. The kitchen and bath are well supplied and the appliances are easy to use. The bedroom and bed are very comfortable and quiet. The living room, cable TV and internet connection were perfect.

In the living room, there is a book with everything you would need to know about the area. The owners, Katrin and Jean Claude, were very helpful and hospitable. They are very knowledgeable about Switzerland and are very helpful when you are making your visitation plans.

The location is perfect. You are in the peaceful countryside with horses and beautiful scenery out your window. There are great walks right out your door and beautiful places to visit a short drive away. You are minutes from roads that can get to all the major cities and sights all over Switzerland.

I have no reservations in recommending your home and have already recommended it to our friends and family.

Thank you for a great stay in Switzerland.

Convivialité, sérénité et accueil chaleureux

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans l'appartement de Katrin et Jean-Claude qui nous ont donné beaucoup de conseils sur les visites et les randonnées. Ils ont tout fait pour que nous passions de très bons moments en suisse, attentionnés, nous avons été chouchoutés.

L'appartement est bien situé à demi-heure de Bern, Neuchatel, Fribourg ; à une heure de Lausanne ( le musée Olympique), de Vevey ( le Chaplin's world), d' Yverdon les bains, de Gruyère ( très beau village) ; de randonnées magnifiques pour tous niveaux, familiales, sportifs ou montagnards.

L'appartement est bien équipé : lit confortable, machine à laver, lave vaisselle, nespresso ect...

A 10 minutes en voiture dans le village de Laupen, vous pourrez acheter pain et faire vos courses ; si vous aimez les marchés Katrin vous donnera les lieux et les dates ce qui vous permettra d'acheter des produits locaux.

En 10 jours nous avons pu satisfaire notre envie de connaître ce pays ; de plus vous pourrez partager avec Katrin et Jean-Claude sur la culture du pays et leur mode de vie.

Nous sommes ravis de notre séjour et nous les remercions de tout coeur de leur accueil chaleureux et de toutes leurs attentions.

N'hésitez pas les Français à passer vos vacances en suisse !

Owner's Response: In der späten Sommerzeit sind viele Bauern mit ihren Traktoren unterwegs und bringen zum Beispiel Heu ein. Da gibt es leider mehr Verkehr.
