We are a family of four spent 3 nights in this wonderful chalet and we loved every minute of it. Host Denise is a very warm and charming English lady and she made us felt right at home. The location of the chalet is just perfect. It has a great mountain view and a supermarket is just 10-step away. The... More

This was our first trip to Murren and our first ever stay in a B&B. Denise is wonderful!! The weather was less than ideal during our stay but she gave us great hiking ideas over breakfast. When the clouds cleared for 15 minutes one day, the views were breathtaking! We stayed in the smaller double room and found it to... More

We can only rave about our stay at Chalet Fontana. First off, Denise is a wonderful hostess and was generally on hand for info, to chat and always for breakfast. We are a family of five and since the apartment was rented out by the time I tried to book she could only provide a situation where our party was... More

We chose Chalet Fontana based on numerous positive TripAdvisor reviews and were not dissapointed with the choice. We stayed 4 nights in the 3rd floor large loft room in mid July; hiking, mountain biking, tennis etc. Chalet Fontana is run by an absolutely charming hostess, Denise. She's a native english speaker, so friendly, easy to approach and knows everything about... More

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
