“Just had a fantastic 2 weeks exchange. The apartment is perfectly located for visiting the Swiss Alps and Davos. Shopping and restaurants are in walking distance. Ruedi and Christine were very, very helpful. They left us lots of information. It is an extremely beautiful and breath taking view from the apartment. Watching the constantly changing clouds over the mountaintop was fascinating. There are a lot of hiking paths just outside the doorstep. The apartment itself is new and comfortable and the terrace was a real treat. To make a long story short. If the owners ever contact you for an exchange, don't you hesitate. Just do it.”
Ruedi's reviewsAs a host (3)
“Liebe Christine und Ruedi, wow! Euer neues zu Hause sieht ja völlig verändert aus: sehr schön! Some words in english: we loved our ski trip to Davos to your old house. Everything was easy to handle with you...thank you again for the lovely week in 2010.”
“We have just spent 3 lovely weeks at the home of Ruedi and Christine in Davos. They have a beautiful, comfortable apartment in an area close to the mountains, a few minutes walk from a lovely bakery, the shops and town centre. The views from the apartment are spectacular, with large windows allowing all round views over the mountains. Communication was excellent prior to the exchange and there was lots of information left for us. We were able to hike, visit lots of interesting and beautiful places and spent a lovely evening with two of their friends. Family also came to check that we were OK. We had the pleasure of meeting them at the airport and they are a lovely, friendly couple. We can fully recommend them as exchange partners. They treated our home with care and left it clean and tidy. Many thanks Ruedi and Christine Mervyn and Adele Walker”
Where is it?
The apartment block is situated on the outskirts of the town of Davos, a world-famous mountain resort with ca. 12,000 permanent inhabitants. Within only five minutes' walking distance, you can reach shops ( with some excellent bakeries for your breakfast croissants among them! ), train station, bus stops etc.. Hiking, mountain biking and walks along the picturesque river as well as into the mountains can start right at our doorstep. This is a great hiking and mountain biking area!
Davos offers all the excellent amenities of a tourist resort, less busy in summer than in winter. Apart from a wide range of sports facilities, there are museums and cultural events, e.g. the 'Davos Festival' in summer, featuring young musicians in a series of world acclaimed concerts. Davos is also world-famous as a winter resort.
In addition, Davos is a gateway to the various valleys of the Grisons offering splendid alpine scenery. The Engadine, with its well-known holiday resorts such as St. Moritz and various hidden gems to discover, is only an hour's drive away.
Within two hours, you can reach the picturesque and bustling cities of Chur, St. Gallen and Zurich with their medieval city centres and imposing cathedrals ( and great shopping! ) - or the Ticino, the Italian part of Switzerland with its lakes and southern charm.
All these places can also be reached by train or postal coach, as the Swiss public transport system is very well developed.
