The historic centre of Scuol is a beautiful place, almost ridiculously pictureseque, and the house is ideally situated for it -- just a couple of minutes walk will take you it and to a little supermarket, bakery and so on, with more facilities (including the spa) up the hill.
The modern architecture of the house itself is unusual for this area, and attracted a certain amount of interest from locals while we were staying, so you can expect some attention as you sit on your balcony (don't therefore if you're after privacy; its position means that you are rather on show as you sit out or open your bedroom blinds).
When we visited (Aug/Sept 2008) our stay was rather spoilt by noisy building work immediately adjacent to the property, and the overall effect of the house was compromised by its being essentially on a building site (!). We were warned about this and given a price reduction before we booked, but the work was far less advanced than we or the owner had expected, and they were still pouring concrete when we left in the second week in September. Nevertheless, the view remained uninterrupted.
The house is well fitted out, although quite how long what looks to be an untreated floor will last when the downstairs shower room door opens straight onto it is at best uncertain. Occasionally one feels that style has triumphed over practicality; in consequence there are rather a large number of house rules in the hope of preserving its pristine condition. One gripe is the owner certainly at present cannot claim garden status for what amounts to a strip of green (or rubble, when we were there) around the house.
The rental agency that handle the property are efficient and courteous, the area is wonderful, the walking excellent, and the people friendly.
Visit the aptly-named Hotel Paradiso in nearby Ftan (two ** Michelin restaurant in the evening), but unless your pockets are as deep as the Grand Canyon, just go for lunch on the terrace, and be prepared to be dazzled.
Scuol must see most of its action in the winter as a ski-resort, but there's lots here to see and do in the summer.
