Chalet Aurelia comfortably sleeps up to 8 or 9 people and has been described as a "cosy and comfortable throwback to old-style alpine chalets with great views".
It has a large dining table, balcony and barbeque area to host a large group with magnificent views of the surrounding peaks. Accessible via car and a short walk (down the mountain) to the local train station (direct trains to Brig, Zermatt, Andermatt) and cable car station (access to Riederalp, Aletsch Arena)
Chalet Aurelia is nestled in the beautiful town of Breiten, a walk away from the Aletsch Riederalp Bahnen the gateway to the beautiful UNESCO Heritage site of Aletsch Arena.
We are available for holidaymakers to rent for a few days, for a week or for more during the winter ski season or the summer hiking/mountain biking season. The fully equipped house sleeps up to 8 people (10 people if you include the sofa bed). The house is large but still small enough for a couple to enjoy the coziness of a Swiss Chalet in the heart of the alps. The house is located at the foot of one of the best ski resorts in Switzerland called Aletsch Arena and only 1 hour from the world famous Zermatt and Saas Fee (other close resorts include Andermatt, Belalp and Crans Montana). Aletsch Arena is a family friendly resort with 58 slopes and 2 snow parks. Chalet Aurelia is the ideal house for skiers, snowboarders, hikers or mountain bike riders looking for value-for-money accommodation in the heart of the alps.
Access to the entire home including the kitchen, two bathrooms, TV room, 4 bedrooms, garden, balcony, barbeque area.
I live in Lausanne/Geneva but have a self-contained studio attached to the house, where I may stay from time to time. I'm available via email or telephone call and we also have our neighbour to assist with any queries or problems.
Pick Up: If you arrive with all your luggage, we can organise pick up from Mörel train station for 25CHF. Alternatively, you can take a taxi from Brig train station for around 50CHF. Brig is about 15 minutes away via taxi.
Driving from Zurich: If you are driving from Zurich there are three routes. Please consult your GPS and check for car transport (car trains) to ensure you don't find yourself stranded for the night (it has happened before).
1. Via Andermatt.
You will be required to take the car train (during certain times of the year) as the mountain pass will be closed. Please ensure you are aware of the car train hours check out sbb.ch.
2. Via Kandersteg.
You will be required to take the car train all year around as there is no road. Please ensure you are aware of the car train hours check out sbb.ch.
3. Via Montreux.
The longest route from Zurich, however there is no car train required for this route and therefore if you arriving late at night I would suggest to take this route to prevent being stranded for the night.
Parking: There is no free parking at our place, however our neighbor and/or local hotel charge 5CHF a day for parking.
8+ Guests: We are happy to accommodate groups bigger than 8 people and for no extra charge, however, we do ask that if you expect to have 9 or 10 or 11 guests that they bring their own sleeping bags. We can set up the couch bed downstairs and the couch upstairs is very comfortable.
We are looking for holidaymakers to rent out our beautiful place.
