We visited in October as a party of 9 which including 3 elderly relatives with limited mobility. The house is ideally equipped for such visitors having one bedroom at ground floor level, as well was a stair lift that enables guests with limited mobility to access bedrooms on the first floor. There are bathrooms on both floors and both with walk in/wet room style showers. The kitchen was well equipped and a large table enabled the whole family to be seated, similarly there is a terrace outside with am awning where the whole family could be seated to eat outside if desired. The house is located quite high up on the hillside and the views are spectacular. The house is associated with a working dairy farm where there are other houses in a cluster. We were able to watch the beautiful Swiss cows with their bells as they came in from the mountain for milking twice a day. It was a wonderful experience for the elderly relatives who would otherwise never have had the chance to enjoy such a beautiful place. There are walks and cycle routes passing the house, including an eBike route from Genenva to the Bodensee. There is also a ski lift nearby though no snow when we visited. We were visiting to attend a wedding, hence the large party, I would visit again if there is another familiy gathering.
We had a great time at Matthias' property. Matthias was extremely helpful beforehand in terms of instructions and details about the property. The house is in a great location and is very comfortable, with just the right furnishings and equipment. We used it as a base for exploring a truly beautiful part of Switzerland as well as the nearby town of St Gallen. It was very easy to do a number of good walks from the house itself.
