This summer was our fourth year at Chalet du Lac and it remains one of our favourite places in Switzerland, no - the World! We are already dreaming of our journey there next August, stepping off the Dampschiff 'Lotschberg' at the jetty, strolling with our bags through the delightful lakeside village of Iseltwald, being welcomed again by the wonderful Susanne and her friendly team, then sitting in the terrace restaurant, enjoying the delicious food whilst gazing at the lake and the mountains opposite. The highlight of our stay this year was the annual Swiss National Day celebrations on 1st August - fireworks, marching bands, a blazing beacon on the lake and much merriment all evening. Breakfast is of course the traditional Swiss fare, fresh bread, local cheeses and ham, fruit - a welcome relief from the British obsession with fried eggs and bacon. Many dinner dishes are fish - pike/perch is a particular favourite of ours. Although the Swiss Franc is unfortunately rather expensive nowadays (only 1.5CHF per £1) the half board tariff is definitely the best option - no need to pay 100CHF for dinner - and you can choose anything from the menu. And where else can you find such scenery, hospitality and serenity? It's worth every Franc!
