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.

Simona bakes bread , produces noodles and there are farmers, who sell excellent meat and cheese and butter produced in the village.
Charmant - stilvoll eingerichtet - gemütlich - schönste Aussicht und beste Gastfreundschaft. Simona hat wunderbar zu uns geschaut und uns frisches Brot gebacken. Andere Spezialitäten (Käse, Joghurt, Pasta, etc.) vom Tal fanden wir in den kleinen Dorfläden. Obwohl wir das kleine Häuschen zum Arbeiten gemietet hatten, fühlten wir uns wie in den Ferien! Wir kommen wieder :)
We stayed in the upstairs apartment for a week and just loved it. It was great for 2 couples from Australia and every room is so well appointed and yet you are staying in an old Swiss cottage. The village of Castiel is very picturesque and there a some very nice walks up and down the hills around the village, particularly the one that goes down to Luen through the forest. The sound of cow bells really lets you know you are in the Swiss countryside. We were very lucky with the weather in October and saw the deciduous trees get their autumn colours in the week we were there. Simona and Stephan were very friendly and we enjoyed the food we bought from them and also the fresh organic produce that we bought in the village. We were able to explore the region around Chur and take a trip on the Bernina Express during the week. We agree with other reviewers who have said how much they enjoyed their stay in Castiel.
Absolutely amazing!! Our best airbnb stay throughout Europe. Beautiful views from the balcony, everything you could possibly need, beautiful bathroom and kitchen, what more can I say - we loved our stay here! A really lovely little town to stay in with lots of exciting things to do nearby. I cannot recommend strongly enough that you stay in this apartment, you won't regret it!
We had the most wonderful time the place. The flat is ideally situated in the middle of a small and very old little village on the road connecting Chur with Arosa. The flat is one of the nicest and most tastefully furnished holiday homes we have stayed so far. We can only recommend it highly without any hesitation.
We spent very pleasant days in these cozy apartment in small village in the middle of the Swiss mountains.
The apartment was comfortable with good views to the mountains. Everybody was very nice and helpful.
We strongly recommend this house!
Thank you Klaus
