Amazing secluded house in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful large home with character and presence, hidden in the mountains for perfect seclusion.

The owners went out of their way to ensure our requirements were met, their kindness was exceptional.

The home was impeccably clean, fresh towels and bedding and even breakfast awaited us.

I had the most relaxing time, I cannot wait to return. Pure solitude with all the modern comforts of home.

The log fire, wine and choice of music was the most memorable time for me during the evenings... Followed by the joy of awaking to a fresh blanket of snow outside.

The Heidi experience

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 adults, a 10 year old and a 2 and 1 year old staying for a week. The 10 year old had specifically requested 'something old' when we were looking for a holiday chalet and this chalet was all she could ever want, complete with her bedroom under the eves.

Ira was welcoming from the beginning of the booking, answering all questions, and providing everything we could want--which included two baby cots and a high chair. Certainly the chalet was the best equipped of anyplace we have ever stayed--with everything we could want or need--and things like olive oil, wine vinegar, herbs and spices that one often forgets and wishes they had if you are cooking. . As we had such small children (and an English budget in expensive Switzerland) we cooked every meal--which included one outside roasting cervalas over the open fire and of course rosti..

The only minor difficulty we had was with low ceilings as three of our party were over 6 feet tall, but we were outside a lot.

We had mixed weather--from pouring rain, to cold (the fire was well used and the central heating efficient) to beautifully sunny days. The area is rich with things to do and see--and Didi, (ira's lovely mother) was an excellent source of information.

So thank you Ira and Didi for giving us a most memorable holiday.

A great getaway

  • 5 of 5

This unique old chalet on the side of a mountain with wonderful views was the perfect winter getaway for our two families. With low ceilings, cozy spaces, narrow stairways, and character galore, it was really a great space for our weekend. There are no other houses nearby and you need to make sure you have a vehicle equipped for the narrow mountain road, especially with winter snow. We received a lot of snow while we were there and the kids loved sledding on the steep hill. They didn't mind being "snowed in" until the snow plows finally made it up the narrow road. The hosts were wonderful and took the time to orient us to the house and the area. Though we primarily came for the winter balloon festival, which did not really happen due to wind, snow, and low visibility that weekend, the kids were actually thankful that we could hang out at the chalet, play games in front of the wood-burning stove, and play in the snow. This place was far better than the typical modern sterile apartment we could have chosen in a nearby village. We hope to visit again!

We enjoyed our stay in the cozy, friendly home with history. The house is furnitured with taste, the surroundings perfect for hiking, beautiful, calm. The owners are very uncomplicated, friendly and helpful. It is likely, we will return to enjoy the calm and athmosphere again.
