Interaction with Guests
Unfortunately, I won't be onsite to welcome you, but Rosa Maria, who lives on the ground floor is available (until 9am and from 3-6pm) if you have any questions. She works at a nearby Hotel during the day and can be reached in case of emergency. I am always reachable by email or mobile phone/text message.
Gluringen is a typical very old alpine village. Most houses were built in 15 and 16th century. Most inhabitants who live in this valley have been working around wood, farming and other outdoor professions. The german dialect spoken in the Wallis (wallisertitsch) is very special but most people are happy to meet other cultures and will speak with hands and feet to exchange stories and welcome you!
Swiss Railways and Bus lines are very reliable and it is really easy to travel by public transportation. The bus stop is down the road (3' walk) and the train station is across the street (7' walk). It is very easy to reach by car although some passes (Nufenen and Grimsel) are closed in the "winter" (mid-October through mid-June). The Fruka Pass is the best way to reach the valley coming from the North or the East but trains don't run after 10pm. Coming from Italy, the Simplon is best and from Geneva take the highway.

Pour la 4ème année consécutive, nous avons retrouvé le chalet de Nadia. Il faisait bon, les lits étaient faits avec de grosses couettes bien chaudes et une plaque de chocolat nous attendait.
C'est toujours un plaisir de passer quelques jours dans ce village; c'est un peu comme remonter le temps.....
Nous avons passé 4 jours dans le charmant appartement de Nadia. Le logement est très spacieux et dispose de tout ce dont on peut avoir besoin, y compris avec deux enfants en bas âge (petits lits, chaise haute, petite baignoire, livres, jeux...). Il se trouve à quelques minutes d'une petite piste de ski parfaite pour les débutants. Nadia répond toujours très rapidement aux mails et fait tout pour que nous nous sentions chez nous. C'est la deuxième fois que nous nous rendons dans cet appartement, et nous nous réjouissons déjà d'y retourner!
Es ist eine schöne Erfahrung in einem Haus mit einer Jahrhundert alten Geschichte wohnen zu können. Die Wohnung ist perfekt um Ferien im Goms zu verbringen. Danke.
We had a wonderful stay in Nadias beautiful house in the mountains! The place was fully equiped, nothing was missing. We even had two baby beds and alot of toys and books for our kids. They enjoyed it as well. We loved the raclette grill for the half cheeses too. The view and the landscape are beautiful. We had a lot of snow and could go skiing and sledding right in front if the house. Nadia was extremely friendly and helped us even with finding the right cheese :) and we could even stay longer the last day. We loved it and hope to come again. Thank you, Nadia!
