Spacious and well-equipped apartment in Hilterfingen on Lake Thun

Stay in Swiss Oberland

The spacious and well-equipped ground-floor Monnard apartment has received many modern updates in recent renovations. It can comfortably accommodate 4 adults or a family of five, with a crib for a child. There is a kitchen, living room, dining room, 2 bedrooms, and a bathroom with a shower stall. The apartment has nice wood and tile floors throughout. Three steps (with handrail) lead to the 2 bedrooms and modern bathroom. Great features are the private covered balcony and the garden-sitting area for dining, relaxing or taking in the beauty. The hosts have put a lot of effort into equipping the apartment, making sure it feels like a home away from home.

The rental is located in a typical Swiss neighborhood, an 8-10-minute uphill walk from the bus stop, boat dock, restaurants, grocery store, bakery, bank/ATM and tourist office of Hilterfingen. It’s a 15-minute bus ride to Thun, with buses running every fifteen minutes from 5:00 a.m. until after midnight. Passenger ships between Interlaken and Thun stop at Hilterfingen almost hourly. Rail connections from Thun are superb, making most of Switzerland accessible as a day trip.

The village of Hilterfingen is located on the sunny side of Lake Thun. The central location provides many opportunities for trips into the city of Thun and the Bernese Oberland. All attractions are easily accessible by good public transport (bus, train, boat).

The friendly and welcoming hosts live on the floor above.

Here's what our guests have to say

M. Huesing


Ruth and Serge were wonderful hosts, providing us with a beautiful apartment. Enjoying the view from the balcony was a great way to begin and end each day. It was very easy to get wherever we wanted to go using the buses and trains. Cooking in the kitchen was a pleasure as it was so well supplied. We even enjoyed using some of the produce from Ruth's garden. The apartment provided everything we could have needed. We could eat indoors, on the balcony or on the patio.

Robert Boas


The Monnard apartment was absolutely spotless and very well equipped. I exaggerate only slightly when I say we could have eaten off the floor.

Vivian Spielbichler


It was lovely, roomy, comfortable, pleasant, well furnished. We had everything we needed. And they were just about to install a dishwasher.
