location : Lax is a picturesque and typical Swiss mountain village at the entrance of the Goms valley that next to its extensive winter sports facilities is known for its wide variety of hiking and biking in the summer. As early as the 14th century, this part of the valley was inhabited and the small close-knit community of Lax has managed to preserve this history . Since 2001, the Aletsch region features on the World Heritage List of UNESCO. The apartment is situated in the modern apartment complex Gomesia . The well maintained and luxuriously furnished apartment was renovated in 2013-14 and is ideal for holidays up to 6 persons . The apartment is located in the centre of the village and offers unobstructed views of the Senggwald and the beautiful mountains of Goms . From the comfortable balcony you can see the red panorama trains of the famous Glacier Express from Zermatt to St. Moritz meander slowly through the valley .
