"Wengen is a car-free town"
Had this sentence been placed in the listing, we would not have rented this apartment. As it goes, only 48 hours before arrival we got an email from Rachel Padley, the property manager at Alpine Holiday Services, informing us that we would have to leave our car in another town and travel to Wengen by train. This is a major disadvantage, consuming time and money. Each hop out of town costs 6 SFr per person each way + 11 SFr parking + an hour wasted. In addition, The apartment is located at the end of a 10 minute up-hill trek from the train station, especially annoying when lugging in your suitcases or groceries.
Other than that, the apartment is spacious, clean, well furnished with great views. Would be a good choice if planning to stay the whoe duration in Wengen or using a Swiss rail-pass for traveling.

Me including my family of nine members stayed at Chalet Beausite for seven nights. The chalte is beautiful and well maintained with all the facilities needed for a family including children. All the house rules are properly documented and displayed. Its location is very convenient to travel other parts of the Suisse including but not limited to Jungfrau, Schilthorn, Grindelwald, Murren, Lauterbrunnen , Haslital , Interlaken region, Lucerne, Zurich , Thun region and many other beautiful places which are at maximum of two hours of driving distance. The chalet it 5 minutes’ walk from the restaurants, cafes, sport equipment hiring and the small supermarket Coop.
Rachel is a very good host . She answers any queries with patience and details. Her communication through email, SMS and phone calls are promptly answered.
In future, we will definitely like to stay again at Chalet Beausite and recommend it to other family and friends.
