About this listing
Holiday flat in Switzerland/ Graubuenden
Location: CH-7027 Castiel (situated in the valley of Schanfigg), distance 9km from Chur, Kanton Graubuenden
Our house was build in the 1840th and is situated in the middle of the small upper part of the village Castiel. Its surrounded by similar wooden houses of the same period of the 18th and 19th century. So you can find here a typical village of that region of the Swiss Alps.
We carefully renovated the house in 2011 completely, separating it in two apartements, adding two modern bathrooms established in the former cattle shed, installing a central heating system based on wood pellets and a warm water system based on solar power.
The character of the building was safed as much as possible so that the interior is almost completely original from the 19th century.
The position on the southslope of the Schanfigg-mountains and above the low land fog results in a fantastically sunny location all year round.
