Top rated property by our guests

Description:

This exquisite 6 bedroom chalet is located in the heart of the Bernese Oberland, near Aeschi bei Spiez, at the end of a private lane, 400m from the nearest house. It offers some of the most stunning views in Switzerland. The spacious living area includes a large, comfortable lounge with breathtaking views on 3 sides, and a fireplace. The entire house was renovated in 2012 and 2013, and features wifi, satellite flat screen Tv, and new bathrooms. All bedrooms offer spectacular views. Both terraces are south facing, and, with a Bbq, are perfect for al fresco dining both in Summer and in Winter. The large garden backs onto a nature reserve. The chalet is particularly suited for those who like a wide choice of activities, in an exclusive, secluded setting. Aeschi itself is packed with restaurants and a wide variety of things to do. Cross country skiing and extensive walking paths all pass within meters of the chalet, and some of the best downhill skiing is within a very short drive away. Close your eyes, imagine The Sound of Music, think of Heidi and Peter, then open them and look out of the windows of Halteweidli – breath the pure mountain air, and relax! Walk through the nature reserve, up mountains, or along relatively flat paths, to the waterfall and enjoy a drink and something to eat at a mountain hut, or walk down to Lake Thun to take a steamer ride, or buy some freshly caught fish from the local fisherman. Summer in Halteweidli is the most exhilarating time – the chalet is tucked away, half a kilometer from the main road, with breathtaking views from every window, as well as its’ two terraces and large garden. The chalet is particularly child-friendly with a large split-level playroom-come-bedroom, sledges, board games, puzzles, high chair, etc. It is located right next to the largest Lama and Acapulco herd in Europe (250 animals), and in a village that offers great slopes for beginners and younger skiers. There are so many things to do, both in the surrounding countryside, but also a bit further afield, that you just won't have time to do them all! Visit Ballenberg open air museum and it’s 250 Swiss farm houses, Interlaken or the Top of Europe Jungfrau train, take a funicular up the Niesen for a spectacular sunset, or visit the caviar farm in Frutigen, or take a pedalo ride on the Blauesee in Kandersteg. Within one kilometer of the chalet go Western Riding, rent an electric bike, a mountain bike, or go for a carriage ride - or just visit the local pool and it's spa. The possibilities are endless, but lying on the terrace, far from it all, enjoying the view of the whole of the Kandertal, must be one of the nicest “activities” of them all! In the Winter, you are in the heart of some of the best skiing in the world. Mythical names such as Wengen, Adelboden-Lenk, Kandersteg, Lauterbrunnen, Grindelwald and of course Gstaad are just 30 minutes away. Not to speak of the Jungfrau region.

Local area info:

Our chalet is located in a breathtakingly stupendous setting: views all down the Kandertal, right up to Kandersteg from one side, and a lake Thun and the alps on the otherside.

It is at the end of a 400m private lane, equally 400m from the nearest inhabited house.

It is located on the outskirts of Aeschi bei Speiz, and offers the perfect setting for exploring some of the worlds’ best skiing in the Winter (Wengen, Adelboden, Lauterbrunnen, Kandersteg, Gstaad, Grindelwald) and offers extensive walking in the Summer.

The chalet itself is set quite on its’ own, and backs on to the Suldtal nature reserve, making it a perfect setting for outdoor activities including hiking, climbing and mountain biking. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy water sports including sailing, windsurfing and rafting on Lake Thun. There are also several golf courses nearby.

The towns of Bern, Thun, Interlaken, Gstaad, are within easy reach and are great for sightseeing, shopping and packed with museums, art galleries and other attractions. And of course, the Top of Europe train to the top of the Jungfrau is a real must!

The nearest airport is Bern just 30mins away, otherwise Zurich or Geneva airports are also within easy reach.
