We had a great time at Anneliese's place! Clean, comfortable, well supplied and great hosts!

  • 4 of 5

The house is wooden and very authentic for the region. Sits up on a hill so car came in very convenient, and provides for feeling of quietness and relaxation. It was very easy to get to Betten where we got a cable car and then did an amazing hike right next to Aletsch Glacier and even got to go under it and on top of it! The hosts are awesome, responding quickly to messages, easy to communicate with,provided good description to find the house and came to greet us even though we arrived past 10pm! Made sure we felt comfortable and quickly responded positively with our hair dryer request.

The beds are comfortable, cozy and warm although the rooms are rather small. The bathroom is new and great to take shower after exhaustive hike :). The kitchen is old but very well equipped so felt really comfortable. The only stretch to make this an excellent host experience would be to include towels as complementary. But I'd love to stay again at their place when I come back to this region and stay longer. It's a very beautiful area of Switzerland!

A wonderful stay at Alpenrose

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 5 days at Alpenrose. My wife and I are both over 65, so our introduction to Alpenrose was a bit scary. Alpenrose is about a 10 minute walk up a steep road from Grengiols, which is itself well above the teeny train station. But Anneliese and Ignaz (and their whole family - tres charmant) were super.

GRENGIOLS = very pretty, very quiet, very nice. All the people we met were helpful and friendly. The ladies in the grocery store (and Tourism Office) helped us with groceries and wine and cheese. The local cheese, by the way is Incredibly good. The elderly lady who runs the restaurant (recommended by Ignaz) was well worth the visit - good food, pleasant atmosphere, cold beer, and a couple of local patrons helped us translate our English to German. Jawohl. BettmerAlp, RiederAlp, Oberwald, Brig, all within easy/fast train from Grengiols station. Zermatt, Spiez and Interlaken within an hour or two train ride through very beautiful country. We did not rent an auto, but it was very easy to get around wherever we wanted to go by train and/or bus.

ALPENROSE = a nice apartment with beautiful views out of almost every window. A nicely equipped kitchen, very functional. Living room was super - TV, WiFi, DVD player, wood-burning stove (additional wood for the stove "Magically" appeared on our doorstep each day), mood lighting. Lovely walks everywhere, right from the front door, through flower covered hillsides. We ended several of our day trips by sitting on the courtyard or in the backyard, enjoying the views while having a bit of cheese, some sausage and a glass (or two?) of wine.

ANNELIESE & IGNAZ = the best part of the whole vacation. Very interesting and friendly people who, along with their whole family, and even the other nearby villagers, are super! Anneliese was happy to drive us to&from the train station, picked up the heavy groceries we had bought in Grengiols so we wouldn't have to carry them uphill (We did carry our important items - Wine & Cheese, HaHa) and made our stay incredibly enjoyable. Merci, Danke, Gracias, Thank You. We had a teeny problem with the WiFi (occasionally it would drop my connection) which Anneliese got fixed right away.

One of our best vacations ever. We loved it, and hope to come back sometime to enjoy it again.

Tony and Merrily

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

This little village is perfect or viewing the region. It's easy to park by the church. The town is just few minutes drive away. Apartment is very clean, bathroom is huge and well equipped. There was some misunderstanding about towels, but the owner promptly provided towels (we didn't know we had to bring our own towels). Four of us had great time and plenty of space in this apartment. The owner is very friendly and she makes you feel like you know her for years. The neighbors are also very friendly. We would stay here again.

A fantastic getaway...

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely apartment in an idyllic location. If you’re after a place with some peace and quiet, while still connecting with the alpine surroundings then you’ll enjoy this hamlet. The chalet apartment consists of three bedrooms with a total of six beds, so while we were only 3 people we had more than enough space. Six adults together in the kitchen will find it very cosy… The apartment was very clean and tidy and was well equipped, also I think it offered very good value for money, taking into account the use of garden for sitting around in or kids playing there safely. If I want to experience this part of the Alps again, I wouldn’t hesitate staying here, it was a lovely experience!

Our Swiss Stopover

  • 4 of 5

Stero-typical Switzerland: mountains, cows with bells, a chalet with real character, and not forgeting the very friendly & helpful Anneliese.

It will be a very good memory for us.
