This luxury chalet in a bright, sunny position offers 4 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (1 en suite). Built in 2003, it is rated 4*+ Luxury by the local Tourist Board. No need to hire a car for this chalet. Trains from the airport drop you just 5 minutes away. Free buses and trasin in town.The kitchen with every facility including latest cooker/microwave and hob, etc. Large fridge/freezer. Designer furnished, with Italian tiles, Danish paintings and fitted carpet throughout. Cozy bedrooms, with walls and ceilings in traditional pine. Cable TV, radio, CD, DVD + all washing facilities, including drier, iron, ironing board. Stunning views, just 5 mins walk from the nearest cable car. There is an English letting agent in Klosters to provide information.

Access to over 350km of world-renowned ski slopes. Creche for the very young, + specialist children's ski school 5 minutes away. Babysitting may be possible too.

Klosters is justifiably world famous as a ski resort. Offering everything from beginners to black runs and huge off piste areas- no wonder Prince Charles goes there! The Ski Club of Great Britain has a rep there throughout the season. There are 5 different ski schools. But what makes Klosters so special is that it is still also a small traditional Swiss village with wooden chalets. Permanent population is just 3000. For non-skiers there are walks through glorious forests and trips to 18th century shopping towns such as Chur, and many traditional Swiss tearooms - so different from purpose built resorts!

In Summer there is a huge outdoor swimming pool, a sailing lake at Davos, walks/treks/and climbs. For children there are playgrounds, zoos, horse rides. This is Heidi Country with specially marked walks amongst the tiny villages. For adults, there is even a tour of the highest vineyard in Europe.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2001

                              About the owner: We are a family who bought the chalet for our own family holidays to give our children a chance to learn to ski, just as I learned as a small boy. I learned in the neighbouring valley, so had very good local knowledge as to where to buy. Now they are teenagers and totally competent on nay black run or off-piste. But they all learned from being small children in the local ski school and grey to love the resort and the area.

                              Why the Owner Chose Klosters-Serneus:
                              Car hire in Switzerland is very expensive, and I can't be bothered with snow chains and parking. This property is a walk to one ski area and the pass stops 50m away to the other. The railway station is a 5 minute walk, so we never need a car in winter, just arrive and leave by train from the airport. There are spectacular views across the mountains. No point in a chalet that feels like the middle of a city! We also wanted a proper 'house/chalet' feel, not just an anonymous flat in a apartment block. It feels like a proper home.
