“A piece of paradise”
Reviewed 28 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

5 star accommodation !! What can I say Chalet Betula is truly stunning the views are priceless the location is just magnificent and perfectly situated half way between Spiez (for swimming, boat trips or just a lazy afternoons by lake Thun) and Gstaad for that winter Skiing.
The Chalet Is immaculate beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, very cosy and very well equipped the private patio is wonderful for outdoor dining whilst taking in the amazing views of the mountains.
Joy and Malcolm were very welcoming and made us feel at home we arrived to fresh bread Swiss chocolate and other goodies we couldn't have wished for anything more apart from to take up squatters rights when it was time to leave.
Our stay was just perfect we would return tomorrow if we could unfortunately we may just have to settle for every year.

“Perfect Place!”
Reviewed 19 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My husband and I stayed for one week at Chalet Betula. It is a perfect place for a long visit. The apartment is very comfortable, well-equipped and there's even a washing machine for dirty hiking clothes! The view from the private patio is beautiful and a joy to have for outdoor dining. Joy and Malcom are delightful, friendly and helpful hosts with great tips for day outings. We will definitely try to plan for another visit.

Liked best: Very comfortable and cozy apartment, beautifully decorated.
Liked least: Nothing at all. But pay close attention to directions as it's a bit difficult to find the first time. GPS would have been helpful in our rental car.

“Fabulous chalet apartment in spectacular mountain setting”
Reviewed 7 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We spent February half term at this lovely property which is comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The owners, Joy and Malcolm, were very welcoming and made us feel very much at home. The fridge and cupboards were stocked with special goodies including Swiss cheeses and chocolate!

The skiing at Jaunpass, (recommended by Joy) just a short drive away up the mountain was a fabulous find for us bearing in mind two of our three children had never skiied before. We were keen to find somewhere friendly and off the mainstream tourist track - it was just what we were looking for!

We very much enjoyed our holiday at Chalet Betula and would definitely love to return next year.

“Excellent location, fabulous apartment and a fabulous break”
Reviewed 24 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We visited Chalet Betula in early January for a week and traveled with our dog. The apartment is well equipped and spacious and at the end of a long day either walking or skiing - there is always plenty of hot water and is very cosy and warm to come back to. When we were there unfortunately there was not much snow but the hosts were helpful and had great ideas and tips of what to do in this idyllic area. The views from the apartment are stunning and the patio is a great sun trap. We have already recommended this apartment to colleagues and friends and we very much look forward to returning next year.

“Beautiful, Wonderful, Relaxing... Simply Superlative!”
Reviewed 27 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Stunning views across an alpine valley, a sun-trap terrace where you can enjoy the October sunshine, and a friendly host who stocks your fridge with cheese, chocolate,and other local delicacies. There's not much more that you could ask for from a Swiss holiday, but at Chalet Betula you get all that and more. The chalet is extremely cosy, with a lovely comfortable bed and a couch that's just designed for lounging on. There's a log fire: we didn't use it, but ooooh I can't imagine how lovely that would be on a snowy day. Everything was absolutely perfect, there were plenty of guidebooks on hand so we could plan our jaunts in the area, and a TV although who needs TV when there are amazing views in every direction?!

“Beautiful chalet in idyllic location.”
Reviewed 15 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The entire chalet is beautiful, well equipped and spotlessly clean. It benefited from free wifi and UK satellite TV. The owners were very friendly and helpful and provided a welcome pack of local foods. There are stunning views from the terrace and I am sure that on a clear night it would be perfect for star gazing. Thank you Joy and Malcolm for a brilliant stay. Hope to see you again.
