Self catered apartment to rent in wengen

We have a 3 bedroom, ground floor holiday apartment, with small fenced garden to rent from the 7th feb - 7th March and 28th march - 6th April. It is a 5 minute walk from the centre of the village and train station and the piste is literally outside the front door. It is furnished with cosy and stylish furniture and had all mod cons. It can be seen here http://www.swissmaidservices.com/en/...view,property/
and booked through our agent at Swiss maid services. If you have any questions you can also ask me directly.

Think my eyes are reading the weekly price incorrectly.

3450 divided by 6-person occupancy = 575 per person per week - hardly extortionate for a ski holiday, let alone for a posh apartment with a garden directly on the piste in one of the world's top resorts?

True but for your average family it would be a bit of a stretch.

Re: Self catered apartment to rent in wengen

Any photos of bathrooms and bedrooms? Is there a separate WC for the bedrooms with a shared bathroom?

Re: Self catered apartment to rent in wengen

The photos are on the website of all 3 bedrooms. There are 2 bathrooms. One with a large shower, toilet and sink and the other with bath/stand up shower, toilet and sink. The apartment is 140sqm. Has its own large entrance hallway for taking off boots etc and has a utility room with washer/dryer. It is more of a luxury self catered property so may not suit everyone.

To stay in the youth hostels in Switzerland usually costs around 200chf -250 per night for our family of 5. They usually charge us for 6 beds because we take a whole room and 6 beds is a standard youth hostel room...and some youth hostels do not allow self-catering so then you add on another 50-100chf for dinner...it adds up fast.

And yes, for a 'regular' family it adds up fast...

On the other hand, Wengen is absolutely beautiful, we stayed there in an aparmentna bit further along from this one, and needed a taxi to move our luggage (we had a small baby with us, total four children) and it was lovely. There is a decent supermarket which is very close by, for groceries...and a range of other shops... As well as being very close to the train station...

Re: Self catered apartment to rent in wengen

Sounds like some people haven't been on a ski holiday for some years…

NO-sadly, but it is OH's 70th BD 2016- and we are looking for somewhere to rent for the family- but we really need 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms ideally.
For my 60th we rented in St Foy, in France- and the prices there are similarly eye watering and possibly worse, and the skiing quite limited + just too many Brits in Feb. But the last appartment had 4 beds, 3 baths and a sauna + jakuzzi- for about the same price. But for VERY special occasions....

If anyone knows of something similar in Haute-Nendaz, 4 Vallée area- would love to know. Sadly stuck to UK half-term due to grand-children ...and very strict rules (which I totally agree with btw) re taking kids out of school out of holiday time.

Re: Self catered apartment to rent in wengen

Just like most holidays, prices for the UK half-term and the Swiss school holidays- go through the roof for the best resorts. If we could, we would of course choose to go in January, but mostly early March- for lower prices, less crowds, and great snow. Sadly, not possible for the next 10 years or more or uk school age grand-kids.
