Stunning location in the Bernese Oberland
A perfect week in the mountains. The property is ideally located a few minutes walk from Wilderswil railway station, through which all trains up into the mountains around the Jungfrau stop: Interlaken Ost is a mere 4 minutes by train (Post Bus also takes you there - 2 stops both around 200 metres from the house), and Grindelwald/Lautebrunnen are only 30 mins by train.
The weather in our week was duff(!), but we decided to venture out every day anyway as we have 2 young children (5 and 1 years old). Getting the Bernese Oberland pass meant that we started every day with a walk down to Wilderswil station before heading somewhere to ride a cable car or mountain railway.
House is lovely and cosy - well-stocked kitchen and lovely downstairs spa room (sauna and jet bath!) - and was a great place to come back to after exploring the alps. Lovely evening views up to the Jungfrau/Mönch and down to Harder Kulm/down Brienzersee.
In addition, the owners Cindy and Pascal are lovely and will help wherever they can with your plans.
Can't wait to go back!
Great place to stay in the heart of Switzerland
The Swiss Holiday House is perfect accommodation for doing anything in Switzerland. Located near Wilderswil train station, the house is easy to get to and offers everything you need for a comfortable stay. Cindy and family are very welcoming and happy to help with anything. We had another great trip here and will be back.
Dear family Templeman

A homeaway in a fairyland!!!
We had our best stay ever! Surrounded by serene mountains, scenic beauty all around and a peaceful town with beautiful chalets and warm people around. Everything was good about our stay no hassles in the house or while traveling out. Any help you need Pascal n Cindy were always there, where to go for sightseeing, shopping, to buy food and all other things. Their home had all the facilities we need - first n foremost free wifi which is a necessity when in a different country, a well equipped kitchen as well, the best was Jacuzzi which we enjoyed a lot as whenever we came home from our sight seeing we used it to relax our tired body.
An unforgettable experience overall, mind it - a Good one!
A Beautiful Place to Stay in a Wonderful Town
The Property was very clean, the rooms were modern design, everything was in working order and easy to use. The beds were comfortable, freshly made, kids rooms were upstairs, they loved the place too! The Sauna was so nice to relax in, the whirlpool bath perfect way to end the day. The owners very helpful, the helped us to plan activities and get around the countryside. Highly recommended.
Luxurious Base From Which To Ski
We had a fantastic week skiing and this house in Wilderswil is perfect for many reasons.
The train station is 5 minutes away, from there you can easily reach all the resorts in the Jungfrau region and the cost of the train is included in your lift pass. In 15 minutes you are in Lauterbrunnen and from there you can take the train to the top of Kleine Scheidegg or the cable car to Winteregg and ski Murren. We had loads of fun skiing the Lauberhorn world cup downhill run and the views from the Schilthorn are not to be missed.
Take another train from Wilderswill and 25 minutes later you are in Grindelwald. Here we hired sledges, we've never been to a resort where there are so many sledge runs and together with a dramatic flight on the zip wire, we had a fun day in the snow without skis.
Back at the house we chilled out each night with a relaxing sauna, the perfect way to end the day and ensure a good nights sleep.
The kitchen is well equipped, we've stayed in apartments in the past where essential items were missing eg Corkscrew, sharp kitchen knife, cups etc and we were pleased to find that everything that we hoped would be there was there.
We were 2 families of 4 with teenage kids. The house was just the right size with the adults taking the two main bedrooms and the kids bedding down in the attic room.
A few other bits of info that might help if you choose to stay here:-
Ski rental shop is a 10 minute drive towards Interlaken and open 'til 19.00 each evening.
There a small supermarket just opposite the railway station and a larger one in Interlaken (10 mins drive).
Overall, we've had a brilliant week and thank you Pascal and Cindy for making us all feel most welcome!
The Holiday House was GREAT!
Overall, I would highly recommend the Swiss Holiday House. We came over from the states and had 5 people sleep very comfortably. The home owners had were great as guides to the local area and gave great advice on things to do. There are beautiful hiking trails 100 meters or so from the house and very easy access to the rail. Pascal took us fly fishing one day, gave a great lesson, and afterwards, cooked us dinner with his family. Again, a great trip and one I would repeat in a heartbeat!
