Perfect! We've had such good airbnb experiences in the past but this was excellent. Exactly what we wanted and appears as picturesque as the photographs. We stayed as a couple in the winter so there was heaps of room and heaps of snow. The mountainside is lovely and you can use the home as a base for day trips or cross country ski from the doorstep or do what we did- very little at all except take in the beauty and walk to the village bakery. Anna and George were super accommodating and helpful on all accounts. The only point to be aware of is some ceilings are quite low but even though my husband bumped his head a few times it is still his favourite place amongst our travels. Our only regret is not booking a full week! Next time. I'd love to return.

We enjoyed our stay in Anna's flat. She was always so quick to get back to us if we had a question and her brother in law met with us and explained where everything was and good hiking trails in the area. The apartment was in a beautiful location and had everything we needed. It was clean and tidy, had good wifi and the restaurant over the road was great for dinner. The local shops were also great and we cooked our own meals as well. Highly recommend Anna's flat as a place to stay.

This is an amazing cottage/flat in a gorgeous village surrounded by beautiful mountains. Shows off the true beauty of Switzerland. Very spacious with everything you'd need, would highly recommended for anyone passing through Switzerland with a car. Anna was an excellent host who was most helpful throughout our stay. Quick to respond to any questions we had.

My family of 5 had the most wonderful and unique experience staying in Anna's chalet and the gorgeous little town of Reckingen. Being from Australia and a place that never sees snow, it was truly remarkable to see snow up on the alps in the middle of summer. Anna, George and their gorgeous little girls were so accommodating helping us settle in, giving advice on the local area and the best place to go for a cable car ride, and even sharing toys and playing with my own little girl! We would have loved to have been able to stay longer, and if we ever get the chance to come back to Switzerland, we will be sure to try and stay here again!

Anna was a great host - always responded quickly to emails and was friendly and helpful. When she wasn't able to be there she still made sure other family could meet our needs - such as turning on the heating when we were cold! Reckingen is a lovely town and the chalet was spacious and comfortable. We self catered most meals and the kitchen had all we needed, Great area for walks and my son and I enjoyed day trips by car to several beautiful locations. Thanks Anna

Absolutely Amazing. This was one of our favourite holiday experiences ever - the train down to Reckingen is fantastic, the town is amazing, the countryside is stunning, the flat is gorgeous, the neighbourly goats are cute! Can't recommend a stay here highly enough. We'll have to return in another season so it is all new again!

I live in Bergen/Norway with my family, but we spend as much time as possible in my husbands hometown Reckingen in Switzerland where the flat is located. This is a lovely spot. The village is very authetic with old timber houses and small farms, and also situated in the midst of a most spectacular alpine landscape.
Since we live in Norway we are not always around, but are always avalable on internet or phone. My parents in law are always around and will be of assistance when needed. And when we are around we live on the top floor of the house and then we always like to stop by to say hi to our guests.
