Property description

Waldbort (woodside), a quiet but convenient lane 400 metres from station, just by the nursery slopes. Residences Waldbort is a luxury chalet with private ski room and heated bootroom. Hohturen is a lovingly fitted first floor apartment with a large south facing sun terrace. Ideal for four people, or families up to 6 people as the study/bedroom has twin futons. Dining and seating facilities for 6/8, newly fitted, finest quality linen and towels. Living/kitchen/dining area is thoughtfully fitted to please those with culinary skills (but no microwave). Cable TV, DVD, CD's (mainly classics), wifi access, books, games. just beside the piste to Wengen, the terrace with views to the Jungfrau is an excellent place for an end of run beer, barbecue, or evening meals in the summer watching the setting sun. A short ski from just outside the apartment and down to the cablecar, Les Residences Waldbort are ideally placed for that early morning start. In Summer enjoy the highest lido in the Alps, pure crystal waters and fantastic views, just behind the chalet.


Family Groups: Wengen is a very popular family resort and has excellent amenities for non-skiers and children. Residences Waldbort has two other apartments available, each for two people, which can be very convenient if, say, parents/grandparents wanted to come too. The Nursery slopes are right in the village (just beside our apartment) and many families spend 'three generation' holidays in Wengen. With grans and granddads playing on the nursery slopes with their grandchildren whilst the 'children' enjoy unencumbered ski days! There's even the possibility to build a snowman on your own terrace.

In Summer the open air pool is so close it is like having your own, without all the fuss. There is a full time lifeguard, so children can play safely within calliing reach of home when lunch or teatime comes; whilst for parents there's a very convenient poolside cafe/bar. Being a traffic free resort, Wengen is a perfect place for young children to explore on their own.

Car: Not Necessary

A personal view of Wengen, finding detail is easy! The Bernese Oberland is a World Heritage Site and simply one of the most beautiful places in the world. It is not the most extensive ski area in Europe, but there is great variety and there are challenging runs around. Equally, it's a great place for families. Parents with ambitious children can be sure they will get a great time skiing with Coggins, the mini section of the legendary Downhill Only Ski Club. Why has Wengen pulled us and our now adult children back for nearly forty years? The charm, the history, the romance of skiing and walking in view of the massive Eiger Nordwand, the beauty of sunrise and sunset on the Jungfrau. The awe of the Lauberhorn downhill run. Old world courtesy. Alp horns, cow bells, fresh milk and cheese. Traditional 'fest' days, flags. Walks in Alpine meadows, picnics by rushing streams, barbecues in forest glades - you really have to breathe it in to understand, but it's why we've made it our second home

Other Activities: Base jumping, Via Ferrata, Sledge run, Cog railway to Jungfraujoch.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We live in Broadway, Worcestershire where Simon is Chairman of a Financial Planning company and until 2015 was Honorary Director of the Broadway Arts Festival. Jo is a retired teacher and a Lay Minister. Simon, who was brought up in Kenya, first came to Wengen in 1972, fell in love with the place and has been there most years since. We have two children, Gwen who is a teacher and married to a doctor of mathematics, and Joe who is an army officer, qualified ski instructor and captain of his regiment's ski team. In 2014 he won the Army 'Downhill' and in 2015 was Combined Services Champion in the Downhill and the Super G, in Meribel. Grand-daughter Jemima arrived in July 2012 and first visited Wengen that August! Uncle Joey can't wait to get her on skis!

Why the Owner Chose Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland:
We watched the old chalet on this site being taken down. The views are so stunning and the location so convenient that we made enquiries as to what was going to replace it. The rest, as they say, is history. We were able to design our own space, choose our own fittings and fit it out not to be over the top 'posh', but practical and homely with some personal things from England and Switzerland.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
They say there are three things to look for in a property. Location, location, location. Location:1. The Bernese Oberland is one of the most beautiful places in the world (official, it's a Unesco World Heritage site) and Wengen is one of the most attractive villages in the Oberland. The views of the mountains from our terrace are amazing. Location: 2 - Just 400 metres from the station and at the top of the nursery slopes, Waldbort is really convenient, but also quiet and peaceful. Few properties have a terrace - we've been told ours is the best in Wengen! Location: 3 - Waldbort is right beside the ski slopes, so no hauling skis and boots around. Cross the lane to the slopes, clip in and away! At the end of the day ski back to where you started, clip out and stagger across the lane to enjoy something cool whilst watching the reflection of the sunset from the terrace (did we mention the terrace before?!) Location: 4 - Waldbort means 'wood side' and the paths to the woods just above us leave right from our door. There are a range of walks, view points, picnic tables, barbecue sites and more. Also, we have a lovely gas barbecue. Yes, it's on the terrace.....................
