About our home

In 2018 we lovingly converted our house into a stylish alpine retrat so that it offers both charms and comfort. It nestles in a car-free, peaceful, traditional village on 1650 m above sea level. It boasts 165 m2 of light-filled living space, finished in local spruce, terrazzo and quality fittings. The property comfortably accommodates up to 10 guests with 2 separate living areas, two double bedrooms, one twin bedroom and a bedroom with two sets of bunkbeds. A garden and two south-facing balconies allow you to enjoy the scenery without even leaving the house.

Location:
The location of the house is magical – sitting in the very first row of the mountain plateau, it offers the most fantastic view of the Bernese Alps and the Lauterbrunnen valley below. At the same time, the house is located directly in the heart of the village in walking distance to the local grocery store and restaurants.

About our home:
On the entrance level of the chalet is a open kitchen/dining area with exterior balcony running along the south facade of the house. There is also a separate toilet, a vestiare and a delightful living room with fire place and bar closet.

The middle floor offers three bedrooms: two double bedrooms and one twin bedroom. Also, there is a second living room with a balcony and a wall mounted TV, as well as a bathroom with shower. The garden level offers access to the garden, a room with 2 set of bunkbeds and a bathroom with ensuite sauna to relax after a day skiing or hiking.

The village Mürren
The charming ski area is accessible directly from our house – you can walk to the gondolas bringing you further up. It is perfect for families while there is enough challenge also for advanced skiers. In spring through to autumn there are wonderful hikes suitable for all ages, plus outdoor sports such as biking and tennis within easy reach. The village has shops and traditional restaurants, as well as a sports center offering wellness and an indoor pool. The house can be reached easily by public transport (train to Lauterbrunnen, then cable car).

Note to families:
The house has everything needed for a stay with children, though caution must be taken on the stairs. Therefore we do not recommend the house for families with kids that are below the age of six. No smoking, no pets.
