About the Property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

A renovated Swiss Alpine chalet set in an unspoiled alpine village. The apartment is luxuriously appointed, self catering, light-filled, with a large living room, double bedroom with twin beds, sleeping loft, kitchen and bathroom, balcony, garden. Extra toilets on the landings. Our beds are 2m long. The bathroom has a bath with a shower. Free WiFi

In Summer, follow the Swiss National Hiking Trail, or enjoy hiking in and around the valley. Choose from easy to difficult trails. If you are more adventuraous rock-climbing and paragliding are available on your doorstep. The Via Ferrata is one of the most difficult rock-climbing routes in the Alps.
In Winter, explore the valley on the 80km of cross-country tracks or the 50km of walking trails. Enjoy the family alpine skiing areas above the village. You may like to try (or watch) ice-climbing at international level.

Let the clean, punctual, comfortable Swiss public transport whisk you to all the wonderful sights of Switzerland. Kandersteg has two trains per hour, regular buses and three cable-cars. Choose from a variety of special value tickets. We can advise you on the one for you.
Come home to relax in the garden with 360 degree views of the mountains and a glass of good Swiss wine.

Pack your great-grandmother's ball gown and join Kandersteg for a week in January when the village returns to the Belle Epoque era of the late 19th century. Victorian activities of all types are on offer (including formal balls) and most Kandersteg residents dress in Victorian clothing. You can rent costumes in the village.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Bill and Pam Adams are now Swiss but were born in the US and UK. They took early retirement and now rent holiday apartments in their renovated Swiss chalet. They love hiking, discussions with their guests, cooking and eating, reading, travelling.

Why the Owner Chose Kandersteg, Switzerland:
We spent many holidays in Kandersteg and when early retirement became possible we jumped at the chance. The Kanderstegers were so friendly and helpful, the air is fresh and clean and public transport is the best in the Alps. There are trains from three Swiss international airports and Milan. A Victorian Hotel came up for sale. It needed major renovation and changes in design but was completed in 6 months. We live on the ground floor and enjoy meeting with our guests. We take the labrador pup from the Senior Centre for a walk most days.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The area around Kandersteg is part of the UNESCO World Heritage site. The scenery is truly spectacular. The lake above the village is probably the most beautiful in the Alps. We are a two minute walk from the shops and post office, 3 minutes from the station. The visitor card gets you free travel on the local bus, reductions on the cable-cars and the museum, swimming pool. etc.
