We just got back yesterday and we're already missing the view and Denise's warm hospitality. Chalet Fontana is a cozy chalet smack dab in the middle of Murren, a 5 minute walk from the train station and cableway. It has stunning views of the "big 3" mountains (Eiger, Monch, Jungfrau). There is nothing like waking up, looking out your window and seeing those snow capped peaks, looking like they are so close you could reach out and touch them.
We had the large double at the front and it was quite big with a little table and 2 chairs right in front of the window, perfect for sitting with a bottle of wine and just staring out into the alpine loveliness. The room was clean and had its own sink, which was very convenient because the chalet has 2 shared bathrooms.
Denise is a great host, she was so friendly and helpful. She got barraged with questions at breakfast every morning from the guests (which has to get old for her!) but she patiently answered every one of them and had great advice. She is amazing!
Can't say enough about Chalet Fontana. It is a bargain compared to other places in and around Murren and the personal touch you get from Denise makes it even more of a steal. We do hope to return to the area and will stay with Denise again if she'll have us!
