“Excellent Swiss alpine apartment”
Reviewed 6 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

A huge thanks to Joy and Malcolm for a wonderful 2 weeks in their chalet apartment in the Swiss Alps. They were generous and hospitable in every way, showing me around on arrival, explaining all that was needed about the apartment and the local area (with comprehensive written info also provided). They had even stocked the fridge with some essentials - most welcome!

The open-plan living area turned out to be much bigger than had been my impression from the photos, was warmly furnished in the Swiss chalet style (with a touch of High Renaissance elegance from a Burlington House Cartoon print adorning the wall adjacent to the large wood-burning fireplace). There's a comfy bed and good shower to boot.

You also have access to the Gstaad, Lenk/Adelboden and (if you care to drive the hour to get there) Grindelwald and the Jungfrau Ski regions, which also provide plenty of options for the summer hiker.

Highly recommended!

“Memorable stay in pristine surroundings”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Staying at Chalet Betula was a memorable experience. The landscape surrounding the Chalet was pristine and serene. The couple that own the Chalet were most charming and extremely attentive to our every need. They also provided valuable information and guidance on what to do and places to visit.

The Condition of the Chalet was immaculate with every amenity provided. They even had stocked the refrigerator with food to make sure that we had something to eat upon our arrival.

We had a magical time in a magical place. I recommend this property unreservedly.

“Chalet Betula,simply the best.”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Chalet Betula exceeded all our expectations.An excellent self contained apartment in an ideal situation,a short drive away from local restaurants and supermarkets.
The unit is superbly presented and fully equipped. Basic food essentials were provided as well as local cheese and delicacies. Joy and Malcolm greeted us warmly on arrival and a chilled bottle of wine awaited in the fridge!
Satellite TV and free wi-fi were an added bonus.
Chalet Betula is well placed for exploring all that beautiful Switzerland has to offer.
We will return.

“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.

“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.
