My husband and I were visiting the alpine area of Switzerland for the first time and we could not have chosen a better place to begin. The Chalet Fontana gave us the perfect location, spotless accommodations, a traditional Swiss breakfast, and a host who was very helpful with suggestions about the area. Other reviewers have described details of these attributes very well.
We were there for the summer hiking and Denise, also a hiker, shared her enthusiasm and tips for the beautiful trails. She made a memorable impression on us by her hospitality and generous gift of an unexpected free room upgrade. We had reserved a small room and after being shown to our room, unpacking (in the euphoria of finally arriving in Switzerland), we realized we were in a larger room. When we notified Denise, she said that she had given us the larger room because it had not been reserved and she would rather have guests in the room than it be empty. And the charge would only be for the small room originally reserved! Amazing! We are already planning a second visit to Switzerland and will definitely return to Murren and the Chalet Fontana.
