Take a breath of fresh air at this picturesque mountain lake

Schwarzsee, Fribourg

1,046 Meters, Prealps

Located at the edge of the country's Fribourg region, Schwarzsee is the gateway to the Alps. Stunning mountains and a quaint little village are centred around a small lake, creating one of the most picturesque landscapes that Switzerland has to offer.

The village and stunning mountain range are centred around Der Schwarszee (German for The Black Lake), which is so-called because of the dark colour given to it by its high sulphur content - which makes it one of the healthiest places in Switzerland to bathe during the summer months, so don't be afraid to jump in!

In the daylight Schwarzsee is an awe-inspiring sight, but it truly becomes special when the sun goes down. Due to it's mountainous location, and lack of a nearby metropolis, there is almost no light polution; making Schwarzsee home to one of the most crystal clear, star-studded skies that you're likely to find in the whole of continental Europe - a truly awe-inspiring sight that's not to be missed!

Accommodation is in a beautiful Swiss mountain chalet, just a short walk from the lake side resort. 

Our charming and comfortable chalet is situated in ideal location; the peer, lakeside resort, canoe rental and chair lift are all reachable with a short 5 minute walk. Head out in the other direction and you're already off on one one of the region's best hiking trails!

As well as all of this the house has stunning views of the mountains and lake, and it sits upon a hill, undisturbed by neighbours. Inside the house, there are bedrooms of various sizes, a dining room, and a large kitchen, all complimented by a spacious and well-maintained garden that faces the lake.
