Absolutely beautiful! Exceptional hospitality and a perfect comfortable place to stay.
Edith was super friendly and a great help with our travel plans. Helping us research and with our laundry. Can’t wait to come back!!!
We stayed for 6 nights with Edith, Bruno and their children Svena and Loris and we would rate it the most enjoyable homestay we have experienced in 5 trips to Europe. The apartment, below the family home, is beautifully set out, spacious, very well equipped, clean and very comfortable. The outlook is superb, looking out over green fields to a huge mountain with an ever changing waterfall in full view.
The proximity of the apartment to the train station at Burglauenen and the short drive to Grindelwald enhance its location. It has the feel of a country stay so close and accessible to the tourist towns of Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen.
However, good as all that is, it is surpassed by the outstanding hospitality that Edith and her family provide. It is simply the friendliest hospitality we have ever experienced.
We were welcomed and cared for in a way we could not have imagined, with Edith going out of her way to inform us about what was available in the region and she understood our desire to experience the richness of traditional Swiss culture.
The opportunity to relax and unwind after a month’s travel, before setting out on many more weeks of touring, was so valued and Edith and Bruno’s family made that possible.
We didn’t want to be staying in a hotel in one of the tourist towns and our stay at Burglauenen provided us with the benefits of privacy, a family setting, a traditional Swiss experience, an amazing outlook and proximity to all the touristy things you could want to do. For example we took the train to Jungfraujoch and what an experience that was.
We could not recommend a stay with Edith and Bruno highly enough. Five stars doesn’t do it justice. They, and our time with them, will stay in our memories for a long, long time.
Es ist uns eine grosse Freude, für unsere Gäste da zu sein und ihnen mit unserem Know-how über die Region zur Seite zu stehen.
Gästen die sich für unsere Kultur interessieren erzählen wir gerne darüber, wie wir leben usw. Gäste, die lieber für sich sind und die Ruhe geniessen, fühlen sich bei uns auch wohl - wir respektieren Ihre Privatsphäre!
Wir sind für Sie da - wenn Sie das wollen, das ist unsere Philosophie.
Das nagelneue Badezimmer ist sicher ein Highlight, welches die Gäste alle gleichermassen schätzen und davon begeistert sind.
Wir freuen uns auf Sie! Herzlichst, Ihre Gastgeberfamilie Edith, Bruno und Kinder
This is a WONDERFUL spot to choose as a home base for visiting the greater Grindelwald area!
We had a delightful stay in the apartment. Edith is a superb source of advice about activities in the greater Grindelwald area. The apartment is clean, spacious, and very well situated to visit all of the surrounding areas.
Access to the local rail system is a five minute walk away.
I have to emphasize again how hospitable the hosts are. Toys for the kids, two friendly cats, advice about the area, etc. I would highly recommend this box for our families visiting the area.
Danke MD Spragg! :-) Es war sehr schön, Sie und Ihre Familie bei uns zu haben!
Es ist unser höchstes Ziel, dass wir unseren Gäste bestmöglichste Tipps und Informationen zu unserer einzigartigen Region geben können. Es ist uns eine grosse Freude, wenn wir persönlichen Kontakt zu den Gästen pflegen können. Sie sollen sich bei uns wohl fühlen!!!
Ab Januar 2018 wartet ein nagel neues Badezimmer auf Sie. Darauf freuen wir uns sehr, Ihnen noch einen besseren Standard bieten zu können.
Auf bald! Wir freuen uns auf Sie! Ihre Gastgeberfamilie Edith, Bruno und Kinder
My family of 6 recently stayed here, and we could not have been happier! Edith was the perfect host. The views are breathtaking and the location couldn't be better. We all looked forward to coming home after a long day of sightseeing to relax. We will definitely be back and would HIGHLY recommend this house.
Thank you very much, dear Kristina!
We are very much looking forward to show you the new bath room after February 2019. :-) And also thank you very much for beeing our guests! It was a big pleasure to have you and your family here! Hopefully we can have you back soon! All the best and yours truly Your houst Edith
Wonderful Chalet Getaway
Our family of 5 (3 teen boys) had a wonderful experience in this sweet home. It was very clean and well equipped. The views were beautiful and we had plenty of room. Edith, Bruno and their children were very friendly and engaging. Edith spent time with us over a cup of coffee giving us information about the area and making suggestions that were much appreciated. The family lives above on the second and third floors.
Wifi was excellent. It has to be for us when traveling with teen.
There is a lot of hiking trails and bicyclist everywhere. The town is very close with many restaurants.
Great energy and a wonderful sense of peace. We loved our stay and hope to be back soon. Maybe we will ski next time.
Danke für diese Bewertung! Wir geben täglich unser Bestes, um den Urlaub unserer Gäste einzigartig machen zu lassen. Wir kennen dir Region gut. Können Wanderungen und Ausflüge empfehlen und wir geniessen den persönlichen Kontakt mit den Gästen. Es ist uns eine Freude, Sie bei uns zu haben! Herzlichst Ihre Gastgeber
Clean comfortable walkout apartment
We stayed in this apartment with our family of two adults and three children for a week. The apartment was clean and comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. We thought the weekly price they charged us was very reasonable compared to other accommodations in Switzerland that we stayed in. We payed through the VRBO website which was very convenient.The host family was very welcoming and friendly. My children enjoyed playing with their 12 year old son on their trampoline. They gave helpful advice regarding things to do. There was no laundry however the owner offered to do a laundry load for us which was very generous. The accommodation was located on a hobby farm outside of Grindalwald, maybe a ten minute drive. They provided us with a pass we could use to take a train into Grindelwald so as to avoid paying for parking in Grindalwald(2.5 Swiss francs per hour) The station was about a ten minute walk from the house. We drove three times over to the Gondola used to access Murren/Gimmelwald and parked our car at the Gondola base for 4-5 hours each time for 6-7 Swiss francs. It was maybe a 20 minute drive and much easier with a family to just drive than to take the train or bus.The view from the back outdoor sitting area was very enjoyable. One drawback noted by other reviewers was that occasionally one could catch a whiff of diesel fumes from a generator. This seemed to be related to the use of the stove fan. Overall we enjoyed our stay at this accommodation and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.
Es ist unser höchstes Ziel, unseren Gästen einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt zu ermöglichen. Dass der Heizungsölgeschmack je nach Wetter stören kann, das ist uns bewusst und tut uns sehr leid. Das wird aber ab Oktober 2016 kein Problem mehr sein!!! Die Heizung wird neu gemacht und es wird dann kein Öl mehr geben. Wir machen eine Holz-Pellet-Heizung. :-) Wir nehmen die Feedbacks der Gäste ernst und geben unser Bestes, um höchste Qualität zu bieten.
