Description

NEW YEAR/ ST SILVESTER - Only 1 ROOM LEFT. WE CHARGE PER PERSON, NOT FOR THE ENTIRE APARTMENT, so unless your party is renting all three rooms in the guest apartment you MAY have to share the bathroom and kitchen/sitting room with other guests. In low season private facilities may be available. Please ask. Winter sports, scenic walks and stunning scenery all year. Now with stronger WiFi!

Please note that if dates are noted as unavailable we may still have rooms available, so please try booking with our other listing "Rooms at St Gall's Alpine Retreat 1". We charge per person, and not for the whole apartment, so unless your party is renting all three rooms in the guest apartment you may have to share the bathroom and kitchen/sitting room facilities with other guests.

Our house is in the Avers Valley in the highest commune in Europe, Avers-Juf. The scenery at any time of year is stunning. We have three ski lifts just a 15 minute walk away and the villages tend to be at their busiest in winter. It is a very family friendly small ski resort. In summer the valley is green, tranquil, and blossoming with a huge variety of wild flowers. We have internet and parking for up to four vehicles. I make all my own bread and cakes and we would be delighted to include breakfast and an evening meal if desired and cater for omnivores and vegetarians at very affordable prices (CHF9 for breakfast and CHF17 for dinner). We normally need one week's notice in order to provide dinner.

There is a bus eight times each day to and from our nearest town (Thusis, 65 minutes by bus) and there is a good rail link from there to Zurich and buses to Chur and Bellinzona. We are also happy to offer lifts to and from Chur or Thusis for a small fee. For those who are driving, we are just 25 minutes from the main road between Chur and San Bernardino and we are just 20 minutes from Magic Wood, the Bouldering paradise of Switzerland. We are a minimum of 3 hours from St Moritz by bus and train.

We have accommodation for up to 12 people in 3 triple and 1 twin room. The rooms are spacious, warm and simply furnished. Three of these rooms are situated within their own top floor flat with large living room and large bathroom. 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.

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.

In winter particularly, our busiest time due to ski season, the cancellation policy is strict, as our apartment is likely to be in demand. In February, we offer a room for one or two people in our own apartment at normal airbnb rates. The guest apartment may or may not be available and is usually open to larger groups staying for a week at a time, Saturday to Saturday. Please send me a message for the price and availability.

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 kitchen and living rooms, chapel.

We enjoy interaction with guests particularly with those who choose to eat with us, but we are also happy to give guests their privacy if so desired.

The people of Avers are friendly and welcoming. The scenery is stunning all year round, each season having something special to offer.

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.

If you fancy a spa while you are here, there is a very nice one in Andeer; indoor and outdoor swimming pool and sauna. We are 20 minutes from the bouldering area at Magic Wood.

For guests without their own car Bruno is happy to give people lifts to the local shop in Cresta or to cafés, restaurants, ski lifts etc., for a small fee.

A great place to spend a couple of days to relax, hike and enjoy the peace and quiet far, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Alistair and Bruno are extremely welcoming and friendly hosts - would definitely recommend including the breakfast and dinner option for a very reasonable price. Alistair is a great chef, you won't be disappointed. For me, this place is exactly what Airbnb is about - meeting interesting people living in places off the beaten track.

I recommend this place to anybody looking for a quiet weekend retreat either alone or with friends. The location and surrounding nature is just wonderful and not yet discovered by tourists. Alistair and Bruno were very welcoming - I felt like at home from the first moment. Alistair is also a talent chef! I very much enjoyed our talks, days spent in the nature and felt like truly rejuvenated when I returned to the city. I would certainly go back and look forward to see Avers summertime! :)

Alistair et Bruno sont des hôtes très accueillants, avec qui je me suis pratiquement senti "en famille". La vie de la maison est rythmée par les activités de chacun et par les moments d'échange et de partage, tout en préservant la discrétion et la tranquillité de tous, ce qui donne au lieu un charme et une convivialité très complémentaire au calme des espaces immenses qui l'environnent. La vallée est en effet particulièrement isolée et "100% nature" : avis aux citadins, le changement d'environnement est radical ! Un lieu de ressourcement où je conseille de rester quelques jours afin de s'imprégner de son atmosphère et de profiter de tous les cadeaux qu'il offre. A noter : Alistair parle anglais, italien, et à vrai dire un petit peu de tout. Bruno parle italien et allemand. L'allemand (ou suisse-allemand) est "la" langue de la vallée, vous trouverez quelques personnes parlant italien et/ou anglais, plus rarement français. Si vous n'êtes pas montagnard averti, et si vous souhaitez profiter de votre séjour pour visiter les villages et vallées environnants, une voiture est absolument indispensable, les transports en commun sont peu fréquents (un bus toutes les deux heures) et surtout très, très chers. Si en revanche vous souhaitez faire de la randonnée, vous pourrez sans problème rayonner à pied depuis la maison.

My partner and I run a small guesthouse where we welcome people for both holidays and retreats. I am Irish and Bruno is (Italian) Swiss. We manage to communicate in a number of languages. We enjoy offering hospitality and introducing this lovely valley to our guests and most guests usually appreciate the tranquil space we provide though we are also happy to entertain families and more energetic tourists.
