About Helen Onions
Mike & Helen are English and have lived and worked in the Alps for twenty years. Their children were born in France and are at the local school in Arosa, enjoying all the mountain activities it offers.
Helen Onions purchased this Chalet in 2006
Why Helen Onions chose Arosa
Chalet Runca is made of high quality materials. It is spacious, homely and in the heart of a high altitude ski resort. Arosa is vibrant and attracts all ages.
What makes this Chalet unique
Arosa has an hourly rail service from Zurich International Airport, exceptionally clean air, high sunshine hours and high snowfall records. Because of this, it developed as a holiday resort over one hundred years ago and the railway was constructed to reach 1800m. The mountain views are great from the chalet and it enjoys a very sunny, peaceful location, yet very close to the town & sporting amenities.

LOvely well equipped chalet in lovely village
The chalet is large and very well equipped with lots of toys, videos etc for the children. Our party had 6 adults and 5 children (1*1, 3*3 and 1*8) and had loads of room. Bus is outside door but infrequent outside main season (started 20th December). Village is lovely and an easy walk. The hosts/owners are very very helpful. Although the snow was not great (but better than most) we had a super holiday.
Thank you for your informative and complimentary review. It was a pleasure to meet you and your family before Christmas.
Although the pistes and ski lifts were open from the 30th November this winter, it was not the usual amounts we have come to expect. It was great that you didn't let it spoil your holiday. We have been lucky with the snow this season as most European resorts could not open for Christmas, and it is still falling now on wintry days in March - snow coming from the north consistently settles from October until May here at 1800m, and the modern snow cannon system provides a reassuring back up. The snow sure winter history and year-round non-commercial feel here are major reasons why we moved our chalet business and family life here, and are still loving living and working in the mountains twenty years on.
During the main season Dec 20 - 6 April, the free resort bus comes by our private road every twenty minutes. Before and after that they run hourly, but on time. We do now have a VW 4x4 seating 9 and have been popping guests to ski school and the station when requested and more convenient than waiting for the bus. I hope this benefits you next time.
This winter we have enjoyed some involvement with our self catering guests be it requests for ski guiding guests over to Lenzerheide or toboggan touring, snow clearing, and providing services such as morning babysitting, as well as the usual same day personal laundry and in-house ski hire (like for like as the rental shops but a better price with helmets included).
Otherwise, we are still offering our winter catered chalet product to those wishing to have set meal-times and a break from the kitchen & cleaning, not to mention a log fire set up each day and steam room refreshed.
We hope you return as there is always something to do here in the fresh alpine air & amongst nature for three generations of family.
Summer is amazing also! When the snow goes, a stunning region is revealed, with plenty to do and entertain the family.
It is a great pleasure when guests return and we try to make it even more welcoming so you really feel it is your second home. Greetings and best regards from Helen & Mike.
Graubünden is largely mountainous & sometimes referred to as 'Switzerland's holiday corner' or the 'land of the 150 valleys' - not to mention the canton's 600 lakes.
Arosa grew as a health resort as it has high sunshine hours and clean air amongst stunning mountains, meadows, forests, lakes, streams. With good access via road & rail, it is a popular region for winter skiing but also running, hiking, & biking. With regular events & excellent transport system, facilities & amenities, Arosa is a gem to discover.
This year celebrates 100 years of Chur-Arosa train

During one hour of train ride 1155 metres of altitude metres are climbed (an average ascent of 60 per mill), 52 bridges and viaducts are crossed and 19 tunnels and 12 galleries are passed.
