Winter is a great time for skiing in Grindelwald and summer is fantastic for hiking. No matter what time of the year you head there, you’ll find something fun-filled to do. And, complementing the pristine beauty of the village are these top chalets in Grindelwald, Switzerland. Book one of these and experience the true meaning of luxury and relaxation.
If there’s five of you travelling but comfortable to lodge together then this chalet is perfect for you. Essentially a one-bedroom, hall, and kitchen-type living arrangement, it is ideal for those of you looking to spend minimal time indoors. It is about 500 m (1,640 ft) from the Männlichen / Kleine Scheidegg base station and is an already popular choice with skiers.

Together with a gazebo and a patio/garden, this chalet makes for quite a good choice.

Book yourself this studio apartment and experience the best of pampering by the host. Offering great services and excellent hospitality is this chalet’s host, Michele. She’s really friendly and goes out of her way to make her guests feel comfortable. As for the studio itself, it is well-equipped and has all the makings of a fuss-free space to lodge in. While the apartment itself does not offer any mountain views, you can head over to the garden in front and you’ll have some amazing unobstructed views to soak in. This one’s quite a hidden gem so consider it seriously.

While you may be travelling solo or as a couple, put up in this typically Swiss-looking chalet and book yourself up for some fun, Grindelwald style. Although the apartment is a one-bedroom, hall, and kitchen-style living arrangement, the outdoor area is just as stunning as any other larger property. Head to the fully furnished patio and enjoy the superlative views of the Eiger and Wetterhorn. The home is also kid-friendly so you can request the host for a crib and a high chair. Not just facilities, the hosts are also very welcoming with other requests. Book the property and you won’t regret it.
