You can reach our house by car in about 15-20 minutes from the motorway exit Chur-Süd. It must be overcome to 85 curves 700 meters. The road, however, is very well developed and therefore easy passable. Because of the height of a corresponding vehicle equipment with winter tires is like everywhere in the Alps in winter necessary, but not necessarily a four-wheel drive

The public transport connection is due to the proximity to the Alpine city of Chur very well. It runs an hourly post bus on the route Chur Arosa (stop 400 meters from the house), and the Rhaetian Railway Chur Arosa. The station is located approximately 1500 meters below Castiel in the locality Lüen.

Beste Ausstattung, wundervolle Lage, ideal zum wandern, kreativer Entspannung, bei Lust auf städtischen Treiben ist Chur gut mit Auto, Bus oder der Rhätischen Bahn zu entdecken.Ganz besonders nette Nachbarn, guter Bioladen mit Alpkäse vor Ort und ein verwunschenes Tal mit einem grünen See ein echter Geheimtipp.Vielen Dank an die guten Gastgeber auch an Konrad und Lotte, die besonderen Vierbeiner...

sehr schöne stilvolle stilsichere Ferienwohnung in schöner Umgebung

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben uns zu zweit in der Wohnung sehr wohlgefühlt. ruhig, aber nicht zu ruhig und einsam; zehn Schritte aus dem Haus und schon ist man auf dem Wanderweg. Wenn gewollt schnell in Chur oder Arosa. nicht zu teuer. freundliche Kontaktaufnahme mit dem Vermmieter falls Fragen auftauchen. Absolut zu empfehlen!

Eine sehr schöne Zeit in dieser Ferienwohnung!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns dieses Haus inklusive des Dorfes und der Gegend genauso vorgestellt und uns sehr in dieser äußerst liebevoll eingerichteten und sauberen Ferienwohnung wohl gefühlt. Die Vermieter waren jederzeit erreichbar, sehr nett und haben uns viele gute Tipps für die Freizeitgestaltung gegeben. Auch die Hausverwalter waren stets bei Fragen für uns da und sehr sympathisch. Wir können diese Ferienwohnung nur jedem ans Herzen legen, der ursprünglich restaurierte Häuser mag, die auch schöne moderne Elemente enthalten. Und die Berge in der Region Graubünden sind sowieso unglaublich beeindruckend! Bis zum nächsten Mal also...

Tolle Ferienwohnung, perfekter Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

ruhig in kleinem Weiler gelegene Wohnung für 2-3 Leute + Hund.

Sehr gut ausgestattet, authentisch eingerichtet, perfekte Ausstattung insb. in Küche und Bad, gemütliches Wohnzimmer,

Wenn die größere Wohnung im Haus belegt ist ev. etwas hellhörig.

Unbürokratische und reibungslose Vermietung!

Vielen Dank an Simone für das leckere Brot und an Marie für den wunderbaren Käse.

The Oberndorf of Castiel is 50-200 meters off the road that leads from the historic Bishop town of Chur to internationally known mountain resort of Arosa. Traffic noise there is around the house, therefore, only when cows or sheep of the local farmers to or from the Alps are driven, or if early in the morning the streets are exempt from the freshly fallen snow. Due to its location on the southern slopes high above the valley section has the house from morning to evening sun all year round, even in December and January. In addition, the village is almost always free of the winter high fog which usually brings the deeper layers of the Alpine foothills in winter many gray weeks.

The climate is moderate high mountain climate. Since the Schanfigger valley lies within the Alps between the major mountain ranges, it is compared to the Alpine northern edge unexpectedly dry and sunny. In summer, it is therefore quite warm despite the height above day while the nights cool pleasant.

Other Activities: in Arosa (25 minutes) Golf, horse riding, paragliding, fishing, big ski area, snow-shoeing in Castiel, Castiel and winter hiking trails in Aros

Golf: each a 18 - hole golf course in Arosa (1800m) and in Lenzerheide (1400m), both beautifully situated in Fören and larch forests with some lakes. Winter golf in early February 2012 at the Arosa See: http: // www. winter golf. ch / pages / program. html


The nearest ski area (Hochwang) is located above St. Peter about 10-15 minutes by car from Castiel. Here you go with one chairlift and one surface lift comfortably up to an altitude of 2300 meters. The ski area is very sunny and is therefore recommended especially by January to March. The cozy ski hut Hochwang can outside on order on snowy Alp besides the lodge in the warm hot tub swim and enjoy some tasty dishes according stylish with magnificent panorama. www. Hochwang. ch

Within easy reach of 30 minutes by car or comfortably by bus and train are the world-famous ski resorts Arosa at the end of the Schanfigg valley www. bergfex. ch / Arosa, Lenzerheide south of Chur www. Lenzerheide. com and Flims-Laax west of Chur www. Alpenarena. ch. All these resorts are of international standing and offer every imaginable winter sport opportunities up to the glacier skiing area in Flims.
