Area was very pretty house was great, ceilings were a little low. We did not stay as long as we booked for and the host was kind enough to give us back some money.

Genuine old chalet with authentic interior but with modern facilities. Comfortable accommodation (though watch your head!), well organised, clean and tidy. Excellent Wi-Fi which was very much appreciated after travelling around France for a few weeks prior. Nadia was very helpful and promptly responded to any queries that we had. Would sincerely recommend to anyone wanting to experience Switzerland ‘the way you imagine it to be’.

Welcome was good, as care taker tried to explain us in her language, but since she knew very little English and we didn't knew her language, it was difficult. Good place for a couple or a small family but not for more as only one bathroom. Location is remote and takes time to reach anywhere. Airbnb showed it in Engelberg but it is much far and have to travel all the way via Brig, Bern & Lucerne to reach Engelberg. Nadia the host was very prompt in his replies and was helpful at every step.

Nadia was fantastic to work with and even sent an inquiry while we were staying at the chalet to see how things were going. The description of the chalet is accurate. We love the neighborhood, a beautiful Swiss village with all the old wooden houses and snowy mountains all around. The train is a short hike down the hill and also nearby are the wonderful dairy shop, a ski rental and restaurants, including a great pizza place down the road toward Reckingen. Everything we need is within walking distance which is very convenient. Also nearby are fantastic cross-country ski trails and a small downhill ski area.

The environment of the Swiss chalet in Gluringen is fantastic. On the other hand it is very well situated, just 12 Km to the cable car to see the Aletsch glacier and not too far to Interlaken and Zermatt. In respect to the the apartment itself we were disappointed because it is very very old and the comfort inside is really basic. First of all, we are just 1.8 mts told but we had to walk bended through the kitchen and distributor to avoid crashing the head against the roof. The kitchen is plenty of old stuff and also of products that have no utility but contribute to create a congested atmosphere. On the contrary we couldn't find paper or hands clothing either. Bed sheets and towels were also old and rough. The first day we had to switch on the heater of the dining room but we had to open the window due to a nasty smell that spread out all around. On the positive side, the well written instructions from Nadia, the kindness of Rosa Maria and the connection to Internet
