Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday chalet in Avers - St Gall's Retreat, Avers

We have accommodation for up to 12 people in four bedrooms. The rooms are warm and simply furnished. Three of these rooms are situated within their own top floor flat with large living room and large bathroom. Please be aware that the guest bathroom and kitchen/sitting room may be shared other guests, unless you are renting the entire apartment.

New Year 2016/2017 - Please note we have only two rooms left. The apartment is already reserved.

Winter and summer the views are incredible for each and every room. We would be delighted to include breakfast and an evening meal if desired and cater for omnivores and vegetarians at very affordable prices (CHF8 for breakfast and CHF15 for dinner). We normally need one weeks notice in order to provide dinner.

We are a small monastic community of two with a special calling to providing hospitality. We are happy to welcome people of any peaceful religion or of none and are also family and animal friendly. The people of Avers are friendly and welcoming. The scenery is stunning all year round, each season having something special to offer. We are just 1 km away from the ski lifts and ski school at Avers Juppa and have 10 km of cross country ski track just a few metres from the house.

Public transport is excellent. We have 7 Buses to and fro each day and the house is a mere 100 metres from the bus stop in Am Bach. Our nearest railway station is Thusis, buses can also be taken from Bellinzona. The bus ride from Thusis via Andeer takes approximately one hour.

Fantastique séjour!

  • 5 of 5

Les locaux sont léger et doux ainsi que l'ambiance générale qui fait que nous nous sentons directement bien dans ces lieux.

Le paysage y est magnifique et les personnes habitant cette vallée aussi.

Les propriétaires sont incroyablement gentils et ont toujours su répondre à nos attentes et questions.

C'est un séjour que je referais pour sûr dans le futur.

People come to Avers for skiing, snowboarding and hiking in winter and hiking/walking in the summer as well as simple relaxation! The valley is renowned for the 5,000 Alpine marmots who live here as well as deer, chamois, steinbock and other fauna. A huge variety of rare wild flowers will delight the botanically minded.

We can provide dinner for CHF15 per person and breakfast for CHF8 per person but we do normally need to know one week in advance if you would like any meals.

We are two hours from St Moritz and about the same from Lugano and an hour and a half from Chiavenna. The route over the Splügen Pass to Val Chiavenna in Italy is delightful in summer.

The spa at Andeer is open all year round and is 30 minutes away by car, a bit longer by bus.

A bank is open a few mornings each week in Cresta Avers but there is no ATM in the valley and it is wise to bring a supply of Swiss cash.
