Probably the best views in Switzerland ....
Your home away from home

need to go anywhere once you've arrived.
We have added two extra hours to the cleaning time and respect the government guidelines for COVID-19 cleaning.

An Amazing Location
Halteweidli is situated in the heart of Switzerland, in the Bernese Oberland, overlooking lake Thun and Interlaken on the one side, and with a view the length of the Kandertal to Adelboden and Kandersteg on the other. It is within easy access of many world renown sites such as the Jungfrau and Interlaken, as well as many well-kept secrets – see activities. It is actually located in a nature reserve and we are lucky enough to have our own family of chamois who visit regularly, as well as deer, foxes and rabbits (not at the same time!). The surrounding woods are full of mushrooms (bolets) and it is not uncommon to bring back a basket full before breakfast.
... and an absolutely unique house
The chalet has to be seen and lived in to believe. It is really unique. It has amazing views from all sides. A sweeping view of the Thunersee and all the mountains on one side, and right down the Kandertal on the other side, through big bay windows make you feel as if you're in paradise every time you look out.
As it's set completely on its own (400m from the nearest house), at the end of a long private lane, deer, foxes, squirrels, are often seen quietly grazing or walking nearby. Children can play outside while the adults enjoy their holiday in the garden or in front of the open fire. Halteweidli is a real home: spacious and yet cosy, practical and fully equipped, from the kitchen to the living space to the games room, it is gorgeously and lovingly designed and cared for.
The chalet was the dream chalet my in-laws built when they retired. They had always walked along the trail that passes the chalet, and had always sat in the meadow where it is built for their picnic, dreaming of one day being able to build their house there. And that is exactly what they did.
I acquired the chalet in 2011 and have renovated it completely: replacing the roof and insulation, putting in triple glazed windows, renovating the bathrooms, and putting in solar heating.
