Location description from owner

The Canton of Vaud region

Chateau d'Oex, Switzerland, is the capital for hot air ballooning due to its unique micro climate. The first round the world balloon flight took place from this village. David Niven loved this place and lived here for many years. He is buried in the local churchyard. The famous resort of Gstaad is just up the road, as well as Gruyere and the amazing Chocolate Factory (eat as much as you can tasting sessions!).

Chateau-d'Oex

Near Gstaad (20 mins), Montreux (50 mins), Gruyeres (20 mins). In winter, visitors can ski the entire Gstaad Super Ski Region; which is comprised of some six sectors, over 70 lifts, and 150 miles (250 kilometers) of trails. In summer skiers can also access summer skiing on the gentle Diablerets glacier. Check out Glacier 3000. Summer sledging is also available on the nearby Relleri mountain.

House rules

There are some house rules which are provided on check in. They include things like respecting that there are people who live at La Soldanelle as their home. Obvious things like keeping noise to a minimum in communal spaces, clearing up and switching off after use of facilities in the lounge and swimming pool area. Taking muddy boots off etc. All common sense things, but for various reasons of past misconduct of some guests these have had to be written down and spelt out :)

“Beautiful Mountain Scenery”

Reviewed 30 Aug 2014

Our stay at La Soldanelle was our best family holiday ever. The location surrounded by mountains is still vividly imprinted in my mind. You could see the mountains from the kitchen and bedroom windows of the apartment and while sitting on a huge terrace downstairs. We had the spa to ourselves so each day the children swam in the pool and we used the jacuzzi and sauna. Our eleven year old at one point asked have we been given the keys to a palace?and although we all laughed at the comment it summed up how we all felt.

“Beautiful apartment in a lovely location”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2013

This is a beautiful apartment which is well equipped. The building is stunning and luxurious, with a great gym and pool etc. Equipped to perfection. The views are sensational and the location is above the village but a sensible walk from the village centre. And the village itself is lovely.

“Our first fabulous White Christmas experience”

Reviewed 18 Mar 2013

My daughter (9 years) and I live in South Africa and have never touched snow. Our Christmas was spent enjoying the beauty of snow-covered Chateau 'doex. A typical day involved a quick walk down the hill to the station, a short train ride to G'Stadt, a window-shopping walk down the main road eating fresh donuts and drinking hot wine, then back to Chateau 'doex, a stop at the local COOP opposite the train station for a bag of groceries, then on to the park and the open air ice-skating rink, two or three hours ice skating then a quick walk back to the apartment at La Saldone. Exhausted from the exciting day, we spent our evenings in the Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna and swimming pool. Then back to the apartment where we cooked super and watched DVD's left by the owner, all suitable for my daughter's age. Our fondest memories are our visit to the Chocolate factory with its all you can eat chocolate tour (we went there three times!), bum-boarding at the local slope, playing in the park, ice-skating and a cable-car trip to the top of the mountain. No, we did not ski, but the friendly people we met, who stayed at La Soldonelle, all seemed to enjoy thier skiing adventures. My daughter and I have started saving for our next trip to La Soldanelle!

Hi. Thanks so much for your review. We love to get the feedback as we love Chateau d'oex so much and its great to hear that other people have had a good time too. It's also really kind of you to take the time to share the specific things you enjoyed to help other people with their stay. We provide lots of information but other people's experiences are so helpful as well. Often we have jam packed holidays in Switzerland involving loads of activities, but this Easter we chose to have a more chilled time and just really enjoyed the views, the scenery, the lovely shops for tea, coffee and hot chocolate in the village, local walks and the wonderful facilities at La Soldanelle as well. It's just a great place to have time special time together. Thanks again for taking the time to write.

“Very nice!”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2012

We did enjoy our staying having visited surrounding villages, Gustaad, Rougemont,Rossiniere, l'Etivas cheese making farmer nereby etc......... Facilities of the apartment such as lounge, gym, indoor pool were very useful for us, an old couple. If the room has a terrace and some sunshine, it should be perfect to stay. (it faces to the north) I am a fraid the laundry machines was not enough, so we must wait many times to use it.

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review. We really appreciate it. There are two washing machines in the laundry room and two tumble dryers, as well as an ironing board and iron.I will pass on you feedback to the Manager at la Soldanelle to see how the use of these facilities might be improved. Many thanks again for the helpful comments, and I am very glad that overall you enjoyed your stay.

“A great apartment in an amazingly beautiful location!”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2012

The apartment is very comfortable and well appointed. The owner could not have been more helpful before we arrived and Maya, on site, was also very helpful. Although the apartment does not have a balcony, there are great views and we used the communal balcony downstairs where there were rarely any other guests. The pool was very nice, as was the gym, though we were too busy walking to take advantage of that! The location is absolutely stunning and yet only a few minutes walk from the village and the station. It's a bit more of a haul coming back up from the village, but still only 10-15 minutes. Well worth getting the local pass for the train, cable cars etc. Note that there is not a sign at the bottom of the road for La Soldanelle, so look for the street name: it's easy enough.

Hi. Many thanks for your review. We are delighted that you had a great stay. Thanks also for your feedback about the sign. We noticed on our last visit that the sign for "La Soldanelle" has been removed at the bottom of the hill. It has been replaced with a sign for "EMS La Pommerie"!! (I am not yet sure what or where that it is, but it is the sign to follow for La Soldanelle!). We have now updated all our directions so as to avoid any future confusion and provided a map of the village also in the information we send out. Thanks again for taking the time to share your experience. We hope you will come back another time soon.

“Great Apartment, fantastic facilities, idyllic location loads to see and do”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2012

Our first trip to Switzerland. Great apartment, easy to get to from train station. Maya very welcoming on arrival. We travelled to Switzerland by train all the way . Swiss public transport superb. On arrival we purchased a Gstaad easy access pass from the tourist information for 5 days . Cost 174 francs worked out approx £25.00 day for family of four. Covered all trains Rossiniere to Zweissimen. Most cable cars, buses, museums , outdoor village swimming pool and bowling. It paid for itself on first day. Return on a cable car about £150.00 normally. Apartment very comfortable and stayed cool in summer heat. Swimming pool in basement a big hit with our boys and games room. Kathryn the owner sends you masses of useful information and ideas of things to see and do, and is most helpful with any queries. Our favourite activity was hiking. We took cable car up, hiked across the mountain tops and then took cable car back down. The scenery around Chateaux d'oex is stunning and hopping on and off the train we often were seated in the panoramic coaches at no extra charge. All in all a fantastic holiday. Thank you Kathryn and Maya for all your help and providing us with a very special holiday.

“a wonderful stay in the beautiful swiss alps”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2012

The apartment in La Soldanelle suited our family of four perfectly. The owner of the apartment gave us many helpful tips to prepare our journey and plan our stay there. We used the pool and hot tub almost every day (especially after a long hike). We stayed three weeks in Chateau d'oex and discovered a new adventure every day. We spent many days hiking in the alps, enjoying the scenery and the culture. We used a swiss rail pass to travel between villages and to enjoy day trips as far away as Montreux and Thun. An amazing holiday and I encourage any traveller to explore this magical area of Switzerland.

“Beautiful place,fantastic accommodation,highly recommended.”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2012

I could not belive the high standard of the appartment for the price we paid,absolutley spotlessly clean,with every thing you need when self catering . Pool and spa area were superb with a great veiw as well . Helpful information about outings,transport,resturants ,food shopping etc given by the owner, really good tips .Favourite bits were white water rafting and the glacier visit. I would and have recommended this venue to others ,my first ever posting on TripAdvisor as it was exceptional.

“Amazing location, great apartment with brilliant facilities-you'll love it!”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2012

A good apartment. We have 2 children aged 6 and 11 and it worked really well. We slept on the large sofa bed and it was very comfortable. The facilities were such a bonus with kids. We swam everyday and used the games room. The sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi were in immaculate condition. The village has lots to do for kids, mini golf, park, bowling, outdoor pool with slides and loads of easy walks. You could spend all your time in the village and never have a dull moment. It has a real Swiss feel and in June, tourist free. New supermarket. Look out for offers for the travel pass. We brought in UK from the Swiss office in London and got 2 for the price of 1 and kids traveled free in the region. The Gstaad pass also seems a good idea. Great days out at Glacier 3000, walking at Montreux to Chateau de Chillon with a boat ride back. Chocolate and Gruyere cheese factories for a rainy day. Cable cars up local mountains great fun. We traveled by train the whole holiday. The Swiss travel system is amazing and takes the stress out of travelling with kids! I highly recommend the apartment and location.

“Nice Apartment”

Reviewed 22 Mar 2012

We really enjoyed our stay at La Soldanelle apartment 41. The building is really nice with a beautiful relaxing lounge and spa rooms. The advert said 5 star facilities and we weren't disappointed. The apartment was functional and had everything in it we required for a relaxing week. We had an active 2 year old and the apartment worked well for us and was spacious enough. We recommend this apartment and would visit again.
