About this location
The Graubunden region
Graubunden is one of Switzerlands largest and most diverse cantons. Three language groups are spoken here, Swiss German, Italian and Romance. It is home to some major internationally known ski resorts, Davos, Klosters, Lenzerheide and St Moritz as well as dozens of genuine Swiss resorts. The canton feels a bit remote and distinct from the rest of Switzerland. High Alpine peaks, dramatic valleys and an abundance of Lakes make this perfect for getting away from it all. Loads of activities , walking, climbing, skiing, rafting and even polo on ice and the cresta run!
For culture Chur is Switzerlands oldest town and has a beautiful preserved medieval centre.
The climate is very healthy and for the most part above any cloud or fog.
Tinizong is a tradional village with old houses and a beautiful 16th century church. The scenery all around is breathtaking, particularly as the road climbs to St Moritz. In the village are a hotel/restaurant and some sports facilities and cross country ski trails
The Savognin ski area is only 2kms away and goes from 1200 to 2700m with runs suitable for all abilities.
It has 80kms of slopes, check out www.savognin.ch or www.savogninbergbahnen.ch
In Summer Savognin has a lake for Swimming. The town has many hotels and restaurants at reasonable prices. The Cube hotel is a trendy spot with night club, funky bars and chill out lounges.

"Thank you very much for everything. Great family ski holiday."
We have had a wonderful time here. The apartment is charming, clean and very comfortable. It made us feel at home. There was also plenty of room for our belongings. We were very pleased with the dining table that provided ample room for our breakfasts and dinners☺
The closeness of the bus was very helpful. There was no need to use our car and we relied on the local transport to take us to Savognin for skiing. To avoid carrying the equipment every day, we used the ski room in Schneesportschule Savognin. It is definitely worth trying. Kids enjoyed the ski school in Savognin.
We would definitely return to Tinizong and your apartment a few more times!

We found the apartment to be comfortable and convenient for enjoying a lovely region of Switzerland. The apartment is modern and well maintained. The couple who manage the apartment live in the same development and are very helpful, as is the owner. The ski school in Savognin is very good and my children found the resort a lovely place to learn to ski and enjoy sledging in the mountains.
