Villa Wilen is a very modern and spacious house in the inner heart of Switzerland and allows to reach most of the touristic highlights within a very short time. The Villa is famous for its architecture, its access to the lake and the phantastic views
This is the ideal hub for people who like to stay a bit outside of the cities, like to enjoy Switzerland's nature in order to relax and to stay away from the mass tourism. If you get bored - there is a strong Wifi, covering the whole house.
The villa is a juwel for any kind of resident. Its modern timeless architecture, the unique views to Lake Sarnen and the nearby Sachsler Mountains attract everybody! Spacious rooms, modern furniture and interior, a spatious and cleaned up garden - all directly on the shore of Lake of Sarnen.
VERY CENTRAL: 20 minutes from LUCERNE, 45 minutes from INTERLAKEN, 55 minutes from ZURICH AIRPORT, 75 minutes from BERNE or BASLE. You don't have to book accomodation at all these places - Villa Wilen allows you to catch the most popular tourist spots of Switzerland easily from one single spot.
The hosts are pleased to help you to find the best tourist places based on your individual wishes.
It is useful to visit Villa Wilen by car (parking is no problem, there is a huge free parking lot in front of the Villa). The place has its advantage due to its unique secluded location on Lake Sarnen.
Shopping is no problem. The nearest shop can be reached by a 10 minutes walk, there are also restaurants and bars nearby. More restaurants and bars are located in Sarnen (distance 3 kilometers) or Lucerne (25 kilometers).
In summer this is an ideal hub to visit LUCERNE, INTERLAKEN, (Jungfrau & Outdoor Sports), Giessbach Falls, Ballenberg Outdoor Museum, Berne, Engelberg (MOUNT TITLIS), Lake of Lucerne, ZURICH, Italy and nearby Mount Pilatus, Melchsee Frutt, Älggi (geographical Center of Switzerland) or Flüeli Ranft/Sachseln (Brother Klaus). BTW: There are all kind of hikes nearby.
In winter it's perfect for SKIING: you can have the ideal combination of alpine skiing/snowboarding (Engelberg, Melchsee-Frutt, Klewenalp, Hasliberg, nearby Mörlialp, Lungern Schönbüel), nordic skiing (Glaubenberg), snowshoe trekking, sledging (Melchsee Frutt) and sight seeing or shopping (Lucerne, Zurich, Berne). Even Milano can be reached within 2 1/2 hours as well...
The house has some nice goodies: in Summer direct acces to the lake for SWIMMING, the chillout room has a BEAMER TV and a very modern CHIMNEY, in Winter the SAUNA in the guest's bathroom might be a welcome recreation as well.
You will be delighted - have a look at the reviews!
We started our airbnb-activity in summer 2011. Since then we could welcome visitors from: USA, China, Pakistan, Israel, Canada, South Corea, India, France, Switzerland, Germany, Malaysia, Holland, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, UK, Columbia, Sweden, Russia, Australia, England, Norway, Poland, Quatar, Egypt, Serbia, Slovenia, Indonesia... we love the social exchange with different cultures!
The house can be rented completely during vacations of the host or shared with the residents while they are present - but still with a high degree of privacy since the house is very big and the hosts are at work over the week days or even sleep outside. The in house elevator facilitates to move between the high floors and avoids to cross each other.
We only host one guest "unit" (not more than one group) at the same time.
Villa Wilen has very large and high rooms and an elevator - this allows easily a shared situation with the 2 hosts. In case of hosts' vacancies there is a possibily to have an unshared situation. There are 2 guest rooms and a private bathroom for private use, kitchen, dining room and backyard are shared.
This is up to you our guests. Some want to have a daily interaction for the coming day, some just enjoy their stay of their own. Since the hosts are working over the working days, there is only interaction possible early morning or in the evening.
The Villa is just a few kilometers away from the geographical center of Switzerland (Aelggi). Therefor you can easily reach the most important touristic highlights within an hourly drive. The closer neighborhood is very unique: the lake, the mountain chain, the views...see the photos.
We recommend to rent a car, since the Villa is located in the countryside. There is an important train station in Sarnen (3 km's away) and a public bus runs every hour 500 meters to the house.
Just have a look at the photos and the reviews - this shows the real insights very clearly...:)

Thank you again Claudia,Sahe,Flo and Roland!
There could not have been a more perfect place (and hosts) for what we were looking for in a Swiss getaway. We found Roland & Claudia's beautiful home while searching for a place to relax following a month working in Russia at the Sochi Olympic Winter Games. After a month of straight work there was no better place to relax, enjoy the isolation of the location, and reflect on our experiences. Plenty of options for the sportsman as well- don't be afraid to grab the canoe and go for a paddle! Add in great conversation and ease of reaching such a remote place (easy drive from Zurich airport) and I have to give Villa Wilen my highest recommendation. Thanks to Roland, Claudia, Shae, Flo (& Robbie) for a fantastic end to a great trip!
Looking for paradise in Switzerland? You found it!! My girlfriend and I stayed at Roland’s house for 3 nights and wished we could have stayed there a lot longer. The house is very modern, very clean and simply beautiful. The view from the guest bedroom is amazing. The location of the house is also very convenient; Close to Luzern and from multiple ski resorts. On top of that, Roland and his wife were the perfect hosts; they gave us suggestions on places to visit and were very kind and friendly. I would strongly recommend this house for anyone who wants to have a memorable vacation in Switzerland. We would come back in a heartbeat!
Thanks for everything!
We stayed for 2 nights and we loved it. Beautiful view from the room. Informative host and friendly.
Amazing! What a wonderful place to stay! I wish we will be there for a lot longer. Excellent to visit the nearby area like Lucern and mount Pilatus. Roland and Claudia are wonderful people!
Highly recommended! One of my best experience with airbnb!
How amazing is it possible for one place to be? The house, the view, the location, the surrounding mountains, the proximity of other cities such as Lucerne, the host, the family, the cat… I could go on raving about the place, our experience, and the graciousness of its hosts, but ultimately I feel that I should simply summarize by saying, stay here, I am confident that you will have one of the best times of your life. The only downside? It was incredibly difficult to go home after having stayed here!
Staying at Roland's house was absolutely amazing - as a host, he and his partner were simply lovely, and very welcoming. Myself and my colleagues were very grateful to feel 'at home' during our stay, and it certainly made the work during the week much easier. The house is AMAZING - it's a very special place, and the views are phenomenal. Also, their cat is completely awesome!!
We stayed at Roland's place another 4 days after our work trip extended, and it was just as fabulous as the first three! Please see my first review below. Thanks once more, Roland!
Roland and Claudia are amazing hosts, who went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable in their beautiful and luxurious home. They provided valuable local info about where is best to go, and had pamphlets and booklets of all local attractions. The rooms had amazing views and were beautifully furnished. I definitely recommend staying with them!
A villa with a resort location and view.
It was a very pleasant stay we had in the villa, we have enjoyed the time and the place. The villa location with the panoramic view of the lake and mounties was amazing.
We asked for an exclusive stay, Roland & Claudia were very kind to respect our request, and they have given us the needed instructions to use the villa and nearby places to visit.
I think the other places are not worth visiting if your staying in this villa. I recommend the villa for people looking for a place to relax.
الفلة حديثة ومحكمة البناء ولها إطلالة رائعه على البحيرة وجبال الآلب. مكان مناسب جداً للإسترخاء، وأصحاب الفلة طيبين ومتعاونين. انصح بها.
