Chalet Selg

Cozy ground floor apartment in Frutigen, ideal for family with a small child

Stay in Swiss Oberland

Chalet Selg features an open-floor kitchen/dining/living area, and a separate bedroom. The large windows and comfy sofa in the living room make this apartment a perfect retreat after a full day outdoors. The kitchen has a breakfast nook and is well equipped with a microwave, oven, toaster and miscellaneous other equipment. A special bonus is a Raclette grill and a Fondue-Set for typical Swiss cheese dishes. The knotty wood paneling in the bedroom is characteristic of a traditional Swiss chalet. The bedroom sleeps 2 persons comfortably on two twin beds pushed together. Parents/grandparents will appreciate an extra bed for a small child.

The apartment opens onto a manicured lawn and garden. Here you’ll find a pretty stone barbecue/fire pit and patio with table and chairs for cookouts. The house is on a quiet residential street one minute from the bus stop and 10-12 minute walk from the busy Frutigen train station (slightly uphill). Shops, stores and restaurants are 5-7 minutes away.

WiFi speed as of 6/8/20: 101 Mbps Down/23 Mbps Up

Frutigen, Switzerland - Oberland, Home of Chalet Selg

Frutigen, situated halfway between Lake Thun and Kandersteg, contrasts wonderfully with the lakeside towns of the Bernese Oberland. It is a rustic mountain village of large, old wooden chalets with considerable charm among the most unspoiled, authentically Swiss parts of the Oberland UnTour area. A town of about 3,500, Frutigen offers reasonable prices, high-quality shopping, restaurants and a very helpful tourist office. The old-time wooden box (Spanschachtel) museum in nearby Wengi typifies the region’s interest in wooden handcrafts. As gateway to the famous high Adelboden valley with excellent hiking, Frutigen station is an important transportation center.

Frutigen offers 2 large supermarkets, banks and ATMs. It has maintained its small-town Swiss character and yet is a wonderful base for day trips through Switzerland. Outstanding mainline express train service takes you in less than an hour to the capital city of Bern, beautiful Lake Thun, the famed resort region surrounding Interlaken, the high valley towns of Adelboden and Kandersteg and to Brig, gateway to the famed resorts of Zermatt and Saas Fee on the south side of the Swiss Alps.
