Very good! The bar counter, pool table, pingpong table, I like the garret so much. In the future, I will decorate my house like this. Thanks for landlady.
We had a great time staying with Christof and his family. The house was very easy to find and looked just like the pictures show. Even though they had two cats, the house was very clean and although i have allergies to cats, i was fine. The table tennis table was great to keep us entertained when we didnt go out at night.
But the best thing about staying there was the interaction with Christof and his family. Everyone was very lovely and welcoming. We spent most of the time with Christofs wife Ursula, who showed us around the lake in Thun, around a local market, helped us find information about things to do in the area and in Interlaken and showed me how to make the traditional bread eaten on a Sunday (me being a chef, this was great for me!). Then the whole family made us a traditional Swiss dinner on our last night there! It was very memorable, something we will never forget!
I would highly recommend staying here, especially if you want to get a feel of how the locals live. The whole family are great!
Thank you guys for such a great stay!!
I booked the room for my wife and her friend, they told me that Christof and his family are very kind and friendly, the room neat, cozy，comfortable and roomy. I highly recommend to other this will be your best choice.
Thun isn't renowned as a tourist destination but I highly recommend it: it's both picturesque and well-supplied for shopping and eating out. Cruise boats leave from the quay and are a perfect way to see the lake and explore some of its beauty spots - we did an evening barbeque cruise which was a delight! We much preferred Thun to the over-crowded tourist mecca that Interlaken has become. Also ideal for day trips - we'd planned to visit Bern and take the train ride up the Jungfrau but ran out of time for the former and visibility for the latter.
The house is just 5 mins walk from the lake by the south shore, it's an easy 10min bus ride into town, buses every 12 mins or so. Their house is great! Guest room is on the top floor and very spacious - it's been set up as a games room/hang-out zone for kids and teenagers so comes complete with a snooker table and bar. We were out exploring so didn't really make the most of the space but if you were stuck indoors in bad weather it would be perfect. Bathroom is one floor down and kitchen 2 floors down, so maybe not the best if you struggle with mobility.
They kindly put out bread, fruit, jam etc for breakfasts and we also cooked 2 evening meals and made teas at all hours. They have a good supply of maps and information and really did everything possible to make us feel welcome. Both speak good English so don't worry if you don't happen to be a German speaker. We definitely expect to go back and have no hesitation recommending them: adventurous couples and outdoorsy families with kids in the 8 - 16 age range I think will have a great time.
We enjoyed our stay in Thun with Christof and his family. We had the entire third floor to ourselves. Christof and his family were very good hosts and very helpful. The area has great transportation and allowed us to take a quick trip into the Swiss Alps. Overall we would be happy to come back and stay with Christof!
Very nice location, access to all lake and mountain locations nearby. Christof and his family were warm and welcoming. I enjoyed sharing breakfast in their home and letting the boys have a true 'European experience'.
I would recommend staying here.
Christof, Ursula and the family is amazing! My friend and I stayed here for three days and we truly enjoyed every moment of it. Everyone is very friendly, sociable and helping. We were invited to family dinner, football game watching and other activities so we could peep into Swiss family life, which we loved. They also introduced us the art of Swiss Raclette :)
The guest room is very spacious, cosy and full of interesting items. They also let us use their kitchen, living room, music room, garden and practically everything in the house. The family loves music, sports, dancing and various types of arts so we enjoyed interesting talks in the evening. They also tried to provide us with useful info so that we could enjoy our trip to the fullest. Thun is a lovely town with a beautiful lake and is close to Bern and Interlaken/Jungfrau - we would love to come back to this town and of course to Christof & Ursula. Many thanks!!
We are from Switzerland - may be one of the most beautiful and diversified countries of the world ;) We like travelling and meeting nice people all around the globe...
We live in Thun, a beautiful town on the Lake of Thun near breathtaking Swiss mountains. Spending time for sports, culture, family and travelling are our favorite activities. We do skiing, swimming, hiking, canoeing, white water kayaking, skydiving, biking, skating and more. We love to read books too and we enjoy visiting theatres and movies.
Our kids are on University and in business life. Ages between 20 and 24. Moreover they like to travel and to spend time on lots of music festivals...
The world includes incredible masterpieces and places which are to be discovered: That's why we travel. But to live at home is the most important destination to choose: to have a rest, to know where we come from, to have a place of security, family and peace.
