The idea is realized by the foundation Ferien im Baudenkmal (FiB), which was founded in 2005 by the Swiss Heritage Society.

History & Information
The Engadine house dates from the 17th C. And has, like most of the Lower Engadine farmhouses, developed from a simple, medieval predecessor to the present building complex. On existing building can be the traces of different tags read. 1994 complete restoration was carried out. Chance of new elements have been incorporated with targeted interventions. In addition, contemporary bathroom and a second apartment were established. 2009 was followed by another smooth renovation that created separate entrances to both apartments. The apartment extends over two floors. The Arventäfer and the old oven with the oven stairs which lead to the two upstairs bedrooms, convey an impression of it has been lived as in the Lower Engadine for centuries.
The old substance is still omnipresent. 1994 was carried out by means of conservation and the local architect Jachen Canal a complete renovation. new elements have been only sporadically with targeted interventions installed. So a second apartment was on the upper floor. The true age of the house is best guess at the basement ceiling. The built-up beams were beaten with an ax by hand from tree trunks. This craft is very old.
The new bathroom in 1994 in in separate elements in the rooms. The new parts do not attempt the old anzubiederern but speak formally a new language. The larch planks used in the new fixtures are former boards from the Kuhstahl. 2009 was a further smooth renovation that created the entrance redesigned and separate entrances to both apartments. At the same time the house has been equipped with high quality furniture. The old stoves were subsequently electrified so that an optimum climate is making legal even without manual single heating session.
