Stunning views across an alpine valley, a sun-trap terrace where you can enjoy the October sunshine, and a friendly host who stocks your fridge with cheese, chocolate,and other local delicacies. There's not much more that you could ask for from a Swiss holiday, but at Chalet Betula you get all that and more. The chalet is extremely cosy, with a lovely comfortable bed and a couch that's just designed for lounging on. There's a log fire: we didn't use it, but ooooh I can't imagine how lovely that would be on a snowy day. Everything was absolutely perfect, there were plenty of guidebooks on hand so we could plan our jaunts in the area, and a TV although who needs TV when there are amazing views in every direction?!

The entire chalet is beautiful, well equipped and spotlessly clean. It benefited from free wifi and UK satellite TV. The owners were very friendly and helpful and provided a welcome pack of local foods. There are stunning views from the terrace and I am sure that on a clear night it would be perfect for star gazing. Thank you Joy and Malcolm for a brilliant stay. Hope to see you again.
For someone who doesn't like cold weather, the week spent at the Chalet Betula transformed my view of winter and snow in a very positive and affectionate way.
Extremely charming chalet with breathtaking views in a secluded village yet easily accessible from key airports in Switzerland.
The communication and attention to detail from the owners, Joy and Malcolm, were superb; felt like we have known them forever! Retreat highly recommended for a quiet, "get-away-from-all" break.
Mind you, the wallet can get a big hit if you're planning to eat out. Best get stocked from local supermarkets and dine in. Although not state-of-the-art equipment and utensils, the chalet has every you will need to prepare nice, hearty and above all, cheap meals!
If there is anything that could be improved is the ventilation while the wood burner is on as the chalet can get a bit too smoky.
We'll be back....hopefully for longer next time!
