Large exclusive private Ski Chalet with spectacular views in an amazing location
About Sarah-Jane Joy
The owner who has lived all over the world and skied everywhere felt that no place compared to the magic Murren had to offer. 13 years ago his dream to find and buy land in Murren came true. Three years later Chalet Sofia was built and ready to be used as designed, for happy times for a big family with many friends for ever.

Its designed for a large family with many friends , all the comfort and facilities that you can wish for in order to have a comfortable and enjoyable stay in the mountains are here. As an extra bonus there is a river running through the land , soon to become the Agertenbach waterfall on its way down to the valley floor 800 meters below us.Tt

Just back from an amazing week in Chalet Sofia in Murren. Really highly recommended. The location is spectacular- waking up every morning to the crisp fresh alpine air - incredible views across to the Eiger, Jungfrau. Miles and miles of quiet hiking on your door step. Great food in the village . The Chalet is incredible - really comfortable, roomy and with lots of great features.
Beautiful chalet in a beautiful village
Our group of 10 friends came to Murren to experience the Swiss Alps, and experience we did! The chalet easily accommodated 10 adults in 5 separate bedrooms. We were able to congregate outside on the balcony every morning and evening for communal downtime while enjoying the spectacular views. However, the chalet is large enough to allow for private time as well. The kitchen was well stocked although we only really used it for breakfast and snacks because the restaurants the owner suggested were so good, we didn't want to cook at night. The owner also suggested several activities (paragliding, white water rafting, hiking, and the via ferrata) which were challenging but also incredible experiences. The owner and house manager went above and beyond to help us with anything we needed. Overall, a wonderful experience.
Outstanding experience in the Swiss Alps
Chalet Sofia is an outstanding place. It is modern, clean, roomy, comfortable and well equipped. The views of the Swiss Alps are amazing. The owners made us feel welcome with their communication before, during and after our stay as well as with some complimentary beverages and snacks upon our arrival. The latter was unexpected, but an extremely nice touch. We highly recommend staying at Chalet Sofia when visiting Murren!
Amazing chalet. We had a wonderful week with our family staying at Chalet Sofia. I couldn't recommend it enough! Stunning views and charming setting. We hope we can come back again soon!
Top class with family and friends
Spent two lovely weeks in Feb with family and friends in this fantastic Chalet. We were 12 pax all in all, 6 adults and the rest older kids and teens. Lot of space and facilities for 12 pax. The Chalet manager was very helpful and service minded with extremely good knowledge of Mürren and the surroundings. Top class!!!
CHALET SOFIA, Mürren, Schilthorn, Jungfrau region, the dramatic nature, the activities, the weather, the food and the company - if you are of the opinion that there is no upper limit how good life can be - then you are in the right PALACE!!
We have had the best family holidays lodging in Chalet Sofia. Superb breakfasts on the patio with the sun, Eiger, Munch and Jungfrau as company. Beautiful days filled with activities such as hiking, biking and rock climbing as well as running and weight training. Long quiet evenings with extraordinary food. And then as a conclusion to the day we say good night to the mountains! At night we sleep deep and dreamless, in divine beds, with full focus on tomorrow
How many pictures have we taken on the Eiger? At least a hundred a day!
There are many activities to choose in Mürren. Here are some of our favourites that we've received as testimonials and witch we now are happy to pass on.
- Hike to Rotstockhütte and eat a Rotstockhütte teller - wash down with a beer or two!
- Hike and climb the Schilthorn, stay on Schilthornhütte for a lunch before you go ahead. Once on the Schilthorn, cheat and take the cabin down.
- Take a packed lunch to Chilchbalm. It’s a magical place, a nature's own temple, a celebration of life and nature.
The whole family loves Chalet Sofia and Mürren - Thord and Annika, Malin and David, Hanna and Petter, Linus and Annika and Alice.
