About This Listing
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.

Perfect experience! The HolidayStudio "Stroopwafel" is clean, modern, and has everything you could want for a short trip. All the appliances are brand new, and Loes is an excellent host. She was very welcoming, and is very responsive to questions. The view is amazing!
(As noted in the description, the house is located at the top of a hill, which is quite an uphill walk from the train station. We drove a rental car so this was not an issue)
Since we were arriving by car Loes and Andre provided directions. It was easy to find the property. The apartment is very comfortable, light, floor heated, with a breathtaking view. Loes welcomed us and showed us around, describing all the amenities, and neighboring attractions for tourists. The forest/mountain is very near giving the opportunity for walks/biking in nature. Nice terrace gives opportunity (when the weather is allowing) to take in the beautiful scenery and lost of fresh air
l stayed here for 3 days, host was very nice and the view was wonderful. She also gave lots of information about tour. It was very helpful. In the room, there were lots of stuff which my children could enjoy. thank tou for your kindness.
The studio is perfect for everything! the central location in Switzerland, the breathtaking mountain views. very clean and very beautiful. You can get everything you need in this studio! The WIFI and the underfloor heating is great! Loes and Andre are very nice, easygoing and thoughtful! The town of Frutigen is also fantastic itself. You will never regret to choose it!!
The studio was perfect on all aspects. Located in the center of Switzerland, near city facilities but also at the edge of the forest the studio is a great base to explore Switzerland. The views even from within the studio are simply amazing, making it a daily struggle to leave the place in the morning! six out of five stars to the hosts, Loes went the extra mile and I cannot thank her enough for her help with our 'emergency'.
Overall highly recommended!
The apartment is absolutely gorgeous! Its stunning mountain views and the beautiful town where it's located, have made our stay to be one of greatest vacation ever. The hosts have been amazingly warm and kind! They actually built us an igloo at the great terrace, so our child could play with the snow. Besides, they received us with some typical Holland waffles, which were delicious! They explained us everything: near tourism attractions and some other relevant info.
In a few words, I totally recommend this awesome place to stay. The place is really amazing, it's fully equipped so you can cook there and save a lot of money, it's also in a really beautiful town, it's near two supermarkets, (around 5 minutes walking), restaurants, pharmacy, etc. We got there in a rented car but I remember there was a bus stop just down the street. So yes, if you're looking for a great place to stay, near awesome places, a totally neat and modern flat, etc. don't even think about it! This is the best option!
