Our sunny studio Stroopwafel, is located in Berner Oberland in the village of Frutigen.
The Studio (30m2 one big room) for max 4 persons is on the "ground floor" of our house and was built in 2011. There is a parkingplace next to the house and the studio, with its own entrance, is reached by a path through the garden.
The studio has a large terrace (50m2, garden furniture and BBQ available) with a stunning mountain view. The studio itself is simple, but nicely furnished and features an open kitchen (induction hob, fridge with freezer compartment and oven), bathroom (shower, washbasin, toilet), and sleeping facilities for 4 persons (double bed and double sofa bed. Large windows illuminate the entire studio thus enabling you to enjoy the mountain view from inside. Internet is available (wireless).
For the children there is a cot, high chair, some toys and books available.
The studio is located on a dead end street (it turns into a footpath) so it is very quiet. The forest is also a wonderful place to play.
Our house is at about 900 m altitude, located on the edge of the forest. A short downhill walk of 800 m takes you to the nearest shop (distance to the train station about 1.1 km downhill). It is very quiet (at night you can only hear the flowing brook and the churchbell strike.)
There are mountain hiking trails right on our doorstep, so you can take a hike from the studio and enjoy the outdoors.
There also runs a 'vita parcours' through the woods next to the house (a route through the forest with different exercises to boost your condition).
When you are in need of a break after a hike or a trip out, sit back on the terrace and relax, whilst indulging in a stroopwafel (dutch waffle) or head to the picnic area, just a few steps away from the studio, and have a BBQ. But you can also relax on the terrace and enjoy a book while you are eating a stroopwafel (dutch waffle) or roast a sausage at the picnic area a few steps away from the apartment
Please note that there is an additional tourist tax of 2.60 CHF per person and day (reduced for kids younger than 16 and even 0 CHF for kids younger than 6 years old). in exchange you get a guest card (locally valid) providing some discount rates.

We spent a very enjoyable three nights in Frutigen at Loes's place and loved every minute of it! Loes is so friendly and warm, she immediately put us at ease! We arrived on a Sunday when the grocery stores were closed but Loes made us a little survival pack of pizza and homemade bread which was very kind and much appreciated. And what can I say about the house - the views are beautiful and will make you weep! We spent a day in Lauterbrunnen and one day just hiking around behind the house, the rest of the time we parents relaxed while the kids played with Legos! Thanks for the memories!
Perfect. Lovely, quite place, with amazing view, very friendly and nice hosts. Couldn't have been any better. Everything that we forgot at home was already provided in the studio. We'd love to come back someday. We definitely recommend this place.
We enjoyed a couple of wonderful days at Loes and André`s studio Stroopwafel. Loes was very friendly and helpful; she gave us useful information about the region and even picked us up from the train station when we arrived at Frutigen. The studio is very charming and offers a stunning view of the mountains. The kitchen facilities are very high standard so that cooking is real fun. We can only recommend this accommodation.
We enjoyed our vacation at the Stroopwafel very much. The apartment was very clean and neatly furnished. Loes was very kind and ready to help with all our questions and even borrowed us her two sleds for a fun afternoon in the mountains. The apartment is quite close to the skiing region in Adelboden which was great too. We definitely recommend the Stroopwafel.
Loes was an absolutely wonderful host! She was able to accommodate some last minute changes in schedule, and everything worked out well. The view from the flat was tremendous and I can't wait to visit again.
Wow! We had an amazing stay at Studio Stroopwafel in Frutigen. Loes and Andre were the perfect hosts and really made us feel at home. They have a lovely family and answered all of our questions and gave advice as needed, etc (thanks Loes also for introducing us to the delicious Dutch waffles!) The studio is situated overlooking the town of Frutigen and yes, you may work off a few calories from the beer you had with dinner on your way home, but the view is absolutely to die for. You could not pay for these views in a hotel. The studio is fully equipped, immaculate, and very spacious and we could not have been more comfortable during our stay. We would definitely love to return one day with our family!
My boyfriend and I had a really wonderful stay at Studio Stroopwafel. We went to Frutigen to celebrate Christmas and stayed in the studio for three nights. Everything was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. We especially loved the kitchen: it was fully stocked with all the pots, pans, dishes, and utensils we needed and that made cooking really easy. The best part was the incredible view!
Communciation with Loes was great. She responded fast and gave us rides to and from the Frutigen train station. A very friendly and helpful host.
The studio itself has a really nice location. Up on a hill that looks down on Frutigen with nothing but the mountains behind it. There's a nice hiking trail whose start is just a 2 minute walk from the studio--very accessible and it can take you a few hours to complete if you finish it.
No complaints, we definitely reccomend this studio if you're looking for a peaceful place to relax and enjoy nature.
We had a lovely stay at this studio in Frutigen! We had lovely views of the mountain range from every window! We met Loes, who was very friendly and helpful with any questions we had. Bedding and kitchen equipment was fully provided, even had a hair dryer which was great :) We loved the underfloor heating too! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this studio and we would definitely stay again in the future :)
This is a wonderful little studio with gorgeous panoramic views of mountains and the valley. It is immaculately clean and warm, with underfloor heating, very cozy to come home to after a walk outside in the cold. There is a comfortable double bed and a sofa bed, plenty of crockery and linen. Loes is a very kind hostess, she went above and beyond duty to help in anyway she can - my parents are in their 60s and not used to the cold or snow, and they were made to feel right at home. We all remember our stay at Frutigen with great fondness. You will not go wrong choosing this beautiful place for a relaxing invigorating holiday.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
