Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Stierva - Great house in Albulatal

3 bedrooms, 6-8 people, 2 fireplaces, sauna, whirlpool, lots of space!

This holiday home with lots charm offers the most possible comfort on 130 m2 thanks to the spacious, open construction - renovated & furnished in July 2010 (that is why there are no winter photos). Ideal for families with children, because hardly any traffic, lots of animals in the village, kiddie pool + children's furniture & toys available.

Enjoy a romantic bath by candlelight in the whirlpool!

Large living/dining room on the ground floor. The wood-dining table can be pulled out & is ideal for up to 8 people.

It is particularly cosy when the fire is burning in the oven or fireplace (firewood available).

It is absolutely peaceful here, you only hear the nature! From the parking spot below on the slope, you have to go up 66 steps)

The village of Stierva has 180 residents (Rhaeto Romanic & German is spoken) & is somewhat far from the large tourism centres & their stress. In the forest, not far from the house, you will find a playground for children & a ski lift for them as well.

Skiing in Savognin (10 km from Stierva): 80 slope km for all levels!

The ski region of Savognin is on a transit route in the heart of the Tales Surses or between Tiefencastel and Julier/Septimerpass in beautiful Graubünden. 13700 ski and snowboard lovers can be transported up the mountain per hour through 7 lifts and 3 cable cars. The chair lifts come from 3 sections of the valley (1200 m) up to the 2670 m high Piz Martegnas. This is really a great ski mountain. From the summit, you can have a stunning view of the skiing area under the Piz Cartas (2713 m). Altogether, the region has 80 slope km, from which 10 km are difficult, 37 km are medium and 33 km are easy. The ski region can be reached by car in about 15 min (through Mon or Tiefencastel).

Skiing in Lenzerheide: Powder snow and sunshine are not rare!

The Lenzerheide ski region is an upper valley, embedded between the mountain chains of Stätzerhorn and the Piz Scalottas. It is a passage - on its north-south axis are the cities of Parpan, Valbella and Lenzerheide. On the east and west side of this axis are the descents of the ski region. The valley is at approx. 1500m above sea level, the only summit can be reached just under 3000 m (Rothorn 2980m, Stätzerhorn 2575m). It is possible to enter the winter sport region at multiple points. By sunshine (not rare here!) it is worth beginning on the west side in the morning, so between Stätzerhorn and the Piz Scalottas, in order to enjoy the early sun. Altogether, the region has 155 slope km, from which 19 km are difficult, 64 km are medium and 72 km are easy. Altogether 39 lifts transport the skiers and snowboarders uphill.

Perfect holidays - 2 families - 4kids

  • 5 of 5

We came for 1 week to spend holidays in this house. 2families with 4 children (age 4-6yrs).

We had wonderful time there. However the weather was a bit rainy, we did nice trips everyday. All the recommendations from the owner were really helpful. Stierva and the neighborhood are lovely, we enjoyed all the little walks through the small old villages around. Tasted cheese or ice-cream from the local shops. We visited also Bad Alvanaz, museum of trains in Bergün and St. Moritz, Katrin's Hütte, the little waterfall and lot of other places.

The house is perfect for relax, save for children, is practically furnished / equipped and has really wonderful atmosphere.

Thank you for unforgettable vacations!

Great summer family retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were two families travelling together through Europe (from Australia) and this was our highlight. After all the millions of tourists in Venice and Paris it was lovely to escape to the countryside! The house was perfect and easily fit us all in. We went for long walks and met the lovely locals. The 8 hour drive from Venice was worth it!!! We flew out of Milan which was only a 4 hour drive - Zurich is even closer. If you want a real Swiss experience this is the place for you.

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Stierva in September. It is a tiny and beautiful village with local shop where you can buy everything that you need and great restaurant serving delicious Capuns.

House is beautiful. It has spacious and comfortable rooms, sauna, Jacuzzi and terrace with breathtaking view that will last in our memory for a very long time.

The nearby area is great for walking, hiking and biking. Both mountain bikers and road bikers will find appropriate tracks for them. And they are beautiful! Villages like Mutten and Obermutten ale breathtaking! And you can get there quite easily with local paths.

Attraction that cannot be missed is train ride from Tiefencastel to St. Moritz. This route is on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

A small lake in Savognin is another point of interest. There are lots of attractions like pedal boats, raft for children, grill, etc. We loved this place, especially after tough day on bikes :)

We stayed in Stierva only for one week but we left Switzerland completely relaxed. We didn’t have time to explore everything in the local area, but we will definitely come back. Maybe in winter, with snowboards instead of bikes.

Amazing views from every window Book now.

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this house. This is a very nice country home in a gorgeous location. Everything was as described.

The house is situated on the side of a mountain with great views overlooking several mountains and quaint villages. Every window in the house has a different beautiful view, a surprise each time you look outside. There is an open hearth to make the nights warm and cozy. The sauna and whirlpool bath are perfect to relax after a long day of cycling or hiking. Beds are comfortable and the kitchen is very well equipped for self-catering.

We came with a couple families with children and this is a great spot for a family vacation.

Right from the house you can go on incredible road biking or mountain biking trails as well as hiking.

The village of Stierva is very nice for a quiet and relaxing vacation in nature and away from traffic and internet.

We already want to come back.

Thank you.

Magnifique maison dans un charmant village!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé deux semaines inoubliables dans cette maison chaleureuse à Stierva! La villa dégage une très belle atmosphère et on s'y sent tout de suite chez soi. Les propriétaires sont très disponibles et nous ont envoyé avant le séjour un dossier très fourni sur la région et la maison. La vue à 180 degrés sur la vallée et les montagnes avoisinantes est un vrai plus. Notre fille de 3 ans a adoré s'amuser avec tous les jouets à disposition. Le village de Stierva est un petit joyau des Alpes où l'on parle romanche! Merci à Uwe et sa famille de nous avoir permis de découvrir une si belle facette de notre pays et dans de telles conditions! À recommander les yeux fermés!

Car: recommended

The house is located approx. 1350 m above sea level in a sunny & peaceful location on the lower edge of the village of Stierva (Albulatal)- approx. 10 or 15 km from the famous ski regions of Savognin (80 slope km) and Lenzerheide (155 slope km). Stierva is a part of the ELA - the largest nature park in Switzerland (more than 1000 km of marked hiking paths). The small streets that lead from Savognin through Mon or from Tiefencastel to Mon end shortly behind our house. Absolute tranquillity and a great mountain panorama await you! Clear mountain air, crystal-clear lakes and streams nearby, signs of Rhaeto-Romanic culture. Hiking & cycling routes begin directly next to the house.

In the village of Stierva, there is a small supermarket, post office and a family-run restaurant where the best Capuns ('mangold wrap') in Graubünden are served. Swimming: year-round in the wellness centre in Bad Alvaneu, sulphurous warm brine (15 minute drive); in the summer in the reservoir lake Lenzerheide.
