Lovely, spotlessly clean apartment with a majestic panoramic view on Bernese Oberland, with the Wildstrubel Glacier in the middle, right in front of you and the picturesque village of Lenk below. In addition to sleeping accommodations inside the apartment sufficient for 4 guests, there are two sofas on the balcony which we used for sleep during the entire stay (beginning of August). It was an unforgettable, fairy-tale experience to see the snowy peaks and greenish slopes first thing upon waking up. The apartment is located in a chalet with two more apartments, the entrance door is behind the house. The kitchen is well-equipped and has an induction stove which we had to learn how to use. It would be helpful to have instructions in English on using this and some other gadgets around the house for guests who don't read German. A special note on getting there. The chalet is located on the mountain high above the village. Hence the tranquility and the beauty of this spot. It can be reached from downtown Lenk by a bus which runs about every 15 minutes or so. If you plan to drive, as we did, be prepared for an 8-10 minutes of driving up a windy and very narrow Bühlbergstrasse. Make sure you understand Swiss rules on the right of way in the mountains.
My husband and I have already stayed many times at Chalet Pirol during the winter and summer periods, and each stay has been a wonderful time for us. We enjoy staying at Chalet Pirol as we find it to be very cozy and comfortable and is located in a very peaceful and quiet environment. The apartment also has a very nice fireplace which gives the place a great atmosphere. We also like Chalet Pirol for its easy access to the cross country tracks, walking and cycling trails. We feel at home each time we come here! Everything is perfect, although we wish there could be access to WiFi system.
Thank you for making each of our stays a wonderful and relaxing experience!
