Chalet | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Chalet Rhaetia was built in 2003. The family of the builder lives next door, so the standard of workmanship is immaculate! The chalet is wooden and built in the traditional style as a family holiday home for the owner, not a commercial let. It is therefore equipped to a much higher standard than ordinary self-catering accommodation. It has been awarded a "Four Star Luxury" rating by the local Tourist Board. Shops and the nearest mountain lift are just 5 minutes' walk away, as is the local train station.
THIS SEASON: A PRIVATE SAUNA, STEAM ROOM AND JET SHOWER ADDED. Perfect for post skiing relaxation
If you anxious to save money, it is perfectly possible to have a full skiing or summer holiday without hiring a car. We never do in winter! The nearest ski area is a "mere" 80km (bigger than many resorts). Get on the bus outside the door, and in 5 minutes you are at the cabl ecar base for another 240km of skiing! The chalet has spectacular views across the valley and beautiful modern baths for a good warm soak after all that activity!

The dining table is fully extendable for 10 people to dine in comfort.
Wifi throughout and English TV stations via cable.
Not many chalets have their own private sauna and steam room. Wonderful after a hard day's skiing,
The Graubunden region
Klosters is a small Swiss village with a population of just 3000 and lies 1200 meters above sea level. A world famous ski and summer resort, it can be reached from Zurich within 2 hours by car or 2 ½ hours by train. It is justifiably a world famous ski resort, part of the Klosters/Davos ski complex. It provides 310km of pistes reached by over 40 cable cars, chairlifts and T bars across five mountains, making it one of the largest ski areas in Europe. However is has a lot more to offer than skiing. It has remained a traditional farming village with classical wooden architecture and "chocolate box" chalets.
In summer the cable cars operate to provide access to mountain walks and rambles through grassy meadows to stunning peaks. Traditional cowbells can be heard across the meadows. Locally made Alpine cheese and butter are available, as is wine from the vineyards just down the valley. Nature reserves provide protection for chamois and ibex whilst the huge pine forests have protected the red squirrel from the more common grey squirrel that has taken over so much of Europe. Mountain bikes can be hired. There are zoos for the children and wine-tasting in the highest vineyards in Europe for mums and dads. The lake at Davos, just 10mins away provides some of the highest sailing in Europe. Tennis, pony trekking, swimming (both outdoors and in) and a trip on the world famous Heidiland and Glacier Express Railways are all on offer.
What makes Klosters and its surrounding area so special is that it is a conservation area. The villages of the whole region are full of traditional Swiss wooden chalets and have not been allowed to sprawl. There are no massive concrete developments as found in many other resorts. Klosters still only has around 30 shops. The meadows are open to everyone. A day trip to the wealthy eighteenth century capital of Chur is worth the effort. Visit St Moritz for the day. Zurich, just a couple of hours away, is a delightfully gentle city with fascinating architecture and legendary shopping.

"Great place to stay"
This summer was the second time we rented the chalet. The chalet is very spacious. It's clean. It has lots of light. And an incredible view out the front windows. The Madrisa gondola is a five minute foot walk away. A bus stop is located less than 50m away. We typically walked into Klosters Platz. We love Klosters and we love to stay at Chalet Rhaetia.

"We hope we get to come back!"
We were nicely surprised at how much space there was, three floors, nice big rooms, we nearly wished there were more of us to fill it up a bit! (We were 5 people and a baby but the place could have easily accommodated 10)
The chalet is very nicely furnished and decorated, with carpet floors, and we felt very much like at home. There is a private sauna downstairs which we thought it was very enjoyable after a day on the slopes.
If I have to say anything negative, we just missed a couple of things in the kitchen, like good knives and of a raclette oven.. Also if you are coming with a baby, just be aware that the mattress on the travel cot is very very thin (as is usually the case on those travel cots) and makes the bed quite hard, so make sure you bring an extra little mattress for your baby's comfort.
Regarding the location, at first we thought we were a bit far from the village but we found that it was really convenient to catch the bus to go and ski on the Parsenn-Davos side (the Madrisa gondola is 5 minutes walk away), and even those of us who ended up walking with the baby stroller found some nice walkways and didn't even want to catch the train either.
So to sum it up, it is a beautiful chalet, very appropriate to offer enough private space for everyone even in a group, conveniently located, very homey and nicely taken care of.
I am delighted that you enjoyed it that much that you want to return! You certainly wouldn't be the first repeat guests and some people have stayed 3/4 times.

"Modern, spacious chalet"
We travelled as a family with two children aged 10 and 12 and had the in-laws visiting. The chalet is modern, clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed all the amenities such as TV, wifi etc. The ski bus stops just outside the door, the ski hire shop is just up the road and there is a variety of skiing terrain to explore. The views from the chalet are beautiful and parking is very easy. Can highly recommend it and we are planning to stay there again.

"A comfortable, spacious, well equipped chalet, ideal for a group."
This very comfortable 4 bedroom chalet is located in Klosters Dorf. This a small village a short bus ride from Klosters Platz. An easy walk down the hill takes you to the Madrissa ski hill, lots of fun but mainly T bars on the slope. A bus outside the chalet leaves twice an hour for Klosters Platz, the main, famous ski area. There are some magnificent ski runs and excellent restaurants on the slopes. We left our skis and boots in Klosters Platz on the first day at a rental shop at the bus/train stop which made things much easier. We took a bus into Klosters Platz every morning, always on time, and in our walking boots.
The bedrooms in the chalet were comfortable with plenty of wardrobe space and bedding. There is a very efficient heating system and lots of hot water. The wifi is fast and reliable. There is a laundry room, lots of cooking utensils and a lovely view of the mountain. At night we went to Klosters Platz, where there are some great restaurants. We went by bus or train and took a taxi home. The manager of the chalet on sight was very helpful. She got groceries in for us and helped us with transportation from the station and gave helpful advise. There is a big co-op grocery shop in Klosters Platz which is very good and quite reasonable, there is a smaller shop for basics close to the chalet. We thought the chalet was excellent value and had a superb holiday, with ages ranging from 19 to 69.

"Nice, clean, state of the art home"
House with enough space to live/stay during the day as well. Safe area for children. As remark already made in guest book: a little bit bigger coffee machine :) (and that's the only remark).

"Good time at Chalet Rhaetia"
Very nice setting and good location for ski vaccation. We very enjoyed our stay in the Chalet. Superb for extended family as there is plenty of space and 3 bathrooms. Good connection to bus and train - no car required to be mobile in the area.

"Super holiday in a lovely chalet"
Thank you very much for the use of your chalet at the beginning of August, it was perfect. Mitzi was extremely helpful, picking us up from the station and pointing various places out. At the chalet she explained how everything worked and even took us back to the Coop to get some food shopping. Later in the week she arrived with a replacement sun umbrella and two further sun loungers.
The chalet had ample space for 4 people and was well equipped - the only thing we would have wanted was a tea cosy! By far it is probably one of the better chalets that we have stayed in and we have stayed in a number over the years. The walking was also good, as was the weather - the rain giving us a day off! We would not hesitate to recommend you to other visitors to Switzerland and would definitely seek you out if we decide to visit Klosters again.
Many thanks to Mitzi for her helpfulness - she even collected us for the return leg to the station at the end of the holiday. Not being left to fend for ourselves all the time was a definite plus factor.
