Overview

About the property

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The Chalet Fortuna penthouse apartment is a luxury apartment within a chalet style house. It has been built to a very high standard and is very well equipped. The large living room with its classic high wooden beamed roof and central wood burning fireplace offers an exceptional standard of furnishing and facilities. The floor to ceiling windows provide panoramic views of the Jungfrau, Silberhorn, Breithorn, Schilthorn and the village of Murren perching on the mountain side far across the Lauterbrunnen valley. During the day the view is stunning - at night in the moonlight one of the most romantic in the world. South and West facing balconies give 270 degree views over the mountains, the valley and back to the village centre itself. An exclusive apartment for discerning guests.

Wengen is the perfect dual season resort destination. In summer 30km of hiking paths around the village and 500 km of sign posted hiking routes in the Jungfrau region are the main attraction with every mountain sport from climbing to hang gliding and white water rafting readily available. Interlaken and its two lakes, golf course and music festivals and open air theatres is a bustling international holiday resort easily accessible in under an hour.

The resort belongs to the most attractive and popular winter sports region in Switzerland. The Jungfrau ski area covers Wengen, Grindelwald,and Murren, with 195 km of pistes. Intermediate skiers have plenty of long runs to choose from and can spend a day travelling right across to the Schilthorn (home of the Piz Gloria restaurant made famous by the James Bond movie) and the notorious 'cannon muzzle' black run, or take the scenic route down to Grindelwald. In January Wengen hosts the Lauberhorn world cup ski race when the village, for one mad week, becomes the centre of the international ski circus. The Swiss ski school is excellent.

There are plenty of mountain restaurants. Many of them, such as the Eigergletscher perched underneath the famous north face of the Eiger, have fabulous views, are good value and have friendly staff with Swiss style service.

Non-skiers come to Wengen in the winter for relaxation and peace, fresh air and the beautiful snow walks. There is ice skating, sledging and curling and excellent spa facilities, open to the public, in a number of the hotels in the village.

The nightlife can be a lot of fun for a small resort with a sleepy image. The apres ski bars are always busy and most of the hotel bars stay open late and some have music. There are good restaurants (mainly in the hotels) and for the night bird a selection of discos and late night bars.

About Julie Doyle

Steven and Susan Booth are both lawyers who live in London. They have a passion for skiing in the winter and enjoying beautiful mountain scenery in winter and summer. Working with their architect they created their dream mountain apartment in 2006 and now enjoy it with their family and friends

Julie Doyle purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Julie Doyle chose Switzerland

Wengen is the ideal summer and winter destination in the Jungfrau Region of Switzerland. The scenery is stunning with views across the world famous Jungfrau mountain range which includes the Eiger, the Jungfrau and the Moench mountain peaks. The village of Wengen sits on its own south facing plateau and is a car free oasis reached only by mountain railway.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment is on the top floor of this newly built chalet and the views from the south and west facing balconies are world class. It is on the edge of the village only 4 minutes walk from the train station and the main cable car. So we have the best of all worlds - peace and quiet and exceptional views a mere stroll away from the bars, restaurants, shops and ski lifts of Wengen centre.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for making us feel welcome. You have an awesome place - location is amazing, very well equipped. We had a great family vacation - hiking, paragliding, cooking meals, playing games and watching the Olympics.

Stunning

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best properties that we have rented over the years. Everything was first class within the apartment itself. The views are stunning. The apartment is in a quiet part of Wengen but it is very easy to access transport, food etc. We did everything by train from the airport to travelling locally and it was so easy, buy a Swiss rail pass though as it saves a lot of money. We bought the flex pass. Would recommend the apartment and area to everyone!

FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5

Not sure why there are not more reviews for this spectacular chalet. Maybe all the folks who have stayed there want to keep it a secret? The guest book at the chalet is filled with page after page of glowing reviews -- I added mine to it. No expense was spared in constructing or furnishing this chalet. Sparkling clean, top of the line furniture and kitchen appliances, wonderful linens, incredible views, very comfortable, great location, very quiet, well designed/constructed and laundry in the basement. I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Six of stayed for 4 nights. Plenty of space to not feel on top of one another. Great balconies to sip your morning tea and look out over the alps. I miss being there and can't wait to return.

We loved the apartment and Wengen!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has everything promised and more. I manage a vacation rental company on the Island of Kauai and this vacation rental is very special. We loved the fireplace, the view, the very comfortable beds, having three bathrooms, a very well equipped kitchen with everything you need. Julie was very helpful. Waking up in the morning and watching the light dance on the Alps while drinking a cup of coffee is amazing. We enjoyed Wengen very much and it has so much beautiful scenery, wonderful restaurants and a wide variety of walks in the area. We bought a four day train pass and were so glad because it got us out of Wengen which is very hard leave because of the beauty of the village. We'll be back one day. :)

incredible views and well appointed apt

  • 5 of 5

We visited Wengen for 5 nights and wish we were there MUCH longer. The pictures do not do this apt. justice--truly amazing views and the interior is extremely well done. The modern furniture is not only handsome but also comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked and the grocery is very nearby. We ate in many meals because we couldn't stand to be away from the beautiful views. There were DVDs, ipods, wifi, and games which kept us (husband and teen daughters) entertained after day of hiking. Julie, the property manager, was extremely helpful and I would highly recommend this property! We wish we were still there...

The view from the deck is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples who stayed here in August, 2011 for a week. The pictures on this website do not begin to do justice to the view from the large windows. It is hard to leave the condo to explore Wengen and surrounding areas. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedrooms are quite comfortable. We have stayed in many VRBO rentals over the years, but I think this is our favorite. It was hard to leave here, even for Italy!
