We stayed for a week in this very friendly bed and breakfast in the centre of Murren. It was very clean and comfortable , perfect place for hikers and those who love the outdoors. The breakfast was filling but the best bit was the conversations with the other guests and with Denise who has an extensive knowledge of the local... More

ROOM WITH A VIEW: Our four-day stay in this beautiful car-free village was a highlight of 3 weeks in Switzerland. And Chalet Fontana is out of this world for comfort, the perfect chalet for time in the Alps. We like it so much we will return in May of 2015.

We enjoyed our stay at Chalet Fontana in Murren. Denise was great to work with and Murren was a great small town away from the more touristy Lautebrunnen. We had a double room with a shared bath that was very clean.

Staying in the Chalet Fontana (pronounced FON-ta-na) and being in Mürren is just like being home. I can't imagine a nicer or more welcoming place than Mürren and Denise and the Chalet Fontana. If you want to see an idyllic Swiss Alpine Village then go here ASAP!

My husband, 2 daughters and I had the pleasure of staying in the apartment at Chalet Fontana during our recent 10-day holiday in Switzerland. I had visited Murren before in 2010 with my younger daughter and loved it so much that I wanted to re-visit it during our recent trip. As there were four of us this time we chose... More

I can only second all the 5star reviews - Denise is amazing and Chalet Fontana is such a charming b&b. If you are traveling to bernese oberland, I have two recommendations: 1) stay with Denise at Chalet Fontana and 2) stay as long as possible. Seriously. Murren is not a place you will be ready to leave when your time... More

We had an absolutely perfect time staying at the Chalet Fontana. We stayed for three nights, one in a normal room and two in the apartment (the apartment was already reserved the first night). Both were fantastic. The rooms were clean and Denise (the owner) was very helpful. Each morning we had breakfast with other tenants and discussed our plans.... More

We stayed 5 nights at Chalet Fontana in Murren in the last week of May. We stayed in the apartment. It is large and spacious and ensured that as a family of four we dint fall over/walk over each other! The views from the front bedroom are great. The back bedroom tended to get cold; maybe a heating issue. The... More

First of all, Denise is a wonderful host and is extremely helpful with suggestions on things to do - we did not even feel the need to visit the Tourist Information center. The breakfast deserves a special mention too. We stayed in the apartment which has a great view of the mountains and all the amenities. It has a well... More

We can't say enough good things about our stay in Murren and the hospitality provided by Denise at Chalet Fontana. Denise made our stay so much more comfortable and enjoyable. We stayed in one of the larger double rooms and had plenty of room and storage space. The shared bathroom/shower was not a problem - we never had to wait... More
