1750 m above sea level on a sunny southwestern alpine terrace in all green countryside, magnificent view, ideal for hiking and biking; plane meadow and mountain creeks for playing.
Access by car only during snow-free season and only with special permit (acquired from local authorities in Parpan: approx. CHF30). Closest shopping in Parpan.
Attention in winter: Acces only by skis or walking; it takes about 1hr from the village to the house (difference in altitude approx. 250m, distance approx. 4km). Not located at a skiing site, however, in proximity of skiing region Parpan/Churwalden/Valbella/Lenzerheide. During times of local avalanche threat due to massive falls of snow it is possible that the access to the house may be delayed or totally inhibited by governmental ruling. If guests are already in the house, an order to leave it, is possible (rather seldom).
