A warm welcome!

My name is Esther Kablan-Bühlmann.

As the CEO and owner of the hadassa holidays homes, I would like to welcome you. My primary goal is to offer you a cozy "home away from home". Based on my extensive experience in the hotel and restaurant business, I believe that hospitality is one of the key ingredients to an unforgettable vacation. Therefore, I personally take care of all my guests at any of my seven holiday homes.

If you have any questions regarding the hadassa holiday homes or your vacation planning, I'm more than happy to speak with you directly (in German, French, English Italian, Spanish, Hebrew or even Arabic).


Please don't hesitate to contact me any time.

Yours truly,

The hadassa-philosophy
Our slogan is "home away from home". At hadassa holiday homes each home is individually furnished and decorated to create a cozy atmosphere. We offer personalized services for our guests, be it chauffeur, catering or daily cleaning - basically "living at home with hotel room service".
As your host, I'm personally available for all your questions regarding your stay or your trip planning. I'm more than happy to share with you my favorite excursions tips.
It makes me feel happy if my guests are perfectly satisfied when returning back home...and hopefully come back again one day.

...here are some impressions from the guestbook:

We enjoyed your house very very much!!! Even on rainy days, we were never bored. It's a lot of fun to BBQ or have dinner outside.

We had a great time at your house and your generosity was beyond expectations. It was the best holiday house we ever stayed in.

The hadassa-story

Everything started with the house next door, which we rented out for many years. In Spring 2007, the tenant decided to move out and the idea to create a comfortable vacation rental was born. With lots of passion, we started to renovate the white timber frame house. We repainted the interior, refurnished and redecorated the whole house and added a brand-new bathroom with whirlpool/steam shower.
We called our first vacation home "hadassa" and soon thereafter it beame a very much sought-after "home away from home" for many guests. They especially liked the comfortable ambiance and the hospitality. Based on this success, we decided to grow our offering of holiday homes in the region of Thun.
Every home should have its own charm....which would make it a distinctive "hadassa holiday home".

Within three years we acquired six more homes and eight beds expanded to sixty.
On 1st of July 2010 we incorporated the "hadassa holiday homes Esther Kablan".
