Great spot

Fantastic view, modern, well equipped chalet and comfy bed, what more could you want. If you have too much luggage like us, just be aware that it\'s a few 100 metres walk down from the cable car on a partly gravel road.

Dear Mark and Jayne, we had a wonderful week in Lauchernalp and loved your Chalet. Thank you so much

Dear Mark and Jayne, we were really lucky with the weather and the snow. We loved your Chalet because for us (family with three children aged 6-12) it provides everything we need. Also, it is really great that the Chalet has everything like Fondue, Raclette equipment, basic snow equipment (sledge etc.). We would be very happy to come again.

Excellent location and comfort

A beautiful property in excellent condition. Location is excellent with stunning views. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a vacation away from the hustle off major resorts.

Great Location, Great Chalet!

We stayed here with Friends and I must say the Chalet is really nice. It has all the features a chalet needs, all the mod cons and the place still feels like new. In the mornings we have a short walk to the ski lifts and then at the end of the day you can ski back to the chalet. The views from the chalet are great, looking over a the valley of Wiler. If you have enough of skiing it\'s lovely sitting out on the balcony in the winter sun looking at the views! The Chalet comfortably sleeps a maximum of 8 people and does not feel cramped. The log burning stove is also great, the chalet is really warm anyway but you can have it really nice and toasty if you get a few logs burning ;-) . The heated floors are also very nice first thing in the morning when you step out of the bed (also a good way to dry off clothes at the end of a day). The skiing is also very good, with a few challenging runs to boot, slopes are not too busy and not many queues at the lifts. I would happy recommend this chalet to anybody planning a Ski trip.... I am currently looking at booking in the summer to check out the slopes for walking and cycling.

A family from Saudi Arabia

My family stayed in this lovely chalet from 7 to 14 July 2010. The chalet is located in a quite and beautiful mountainous area. It is a little bit far from big towns. Just like what the owner said in the advertisement, the chalet is very clean, spacious, accommodating, and very well equipped. It looks that the chalet is new. Because the area is under development, the chalet has no mailing address, which means a difficulty to reach it using a navigation system. For those who are the first time to visit Switzerland, The road to this chalet is a nightmare. It is very narrow and zigzagging while you go up the mountain. After I drove it few times, it became very interesting. For those who will come from Interlaken area, the road includes a ferry that coast 20 Franks for one way (25 in weekends). The owner of this chalet looks very busy when I contacted him. It took him more than a week to reply every e mail that I send. This made me very nervous. At that time he had not posted his phone number. Although this vacation seemed to be not good in the beginning, it turned out to be one of the best I have ever had and part of that was due to accommodation.

Modern purpose furnished house with lots of light & sun terrace

Beautiful location with a view over the whole Ltschental, quiet, furnished with everything, what is needed & much more, it can live in this bright chalet at home - we will be back! Payment & contact with owner went flawlessly and quickly - questions were answered immediately ????

Very nice chalet with a breathtaking view!

Very nice chalet with everything you need for a wonderful holiday. Lovely sunny terrace and great view. The Lotschental is a must.

Nice, bright chalet with dream bedroom

All the best, except for 2 small restrictions. With a lot of snow, you can not use the lower access with vestibule and ski boot holder and must go up through the living room. For 8 people the dining table is very scarce and we have taken a patio table as a supplement.
