Overview

About the property

Garden, Panoramaview, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, historic kitchen with fireplace

Our house is located between neighbouring homes on the eastern edge of the village of Soglio. Soglio is situated on a southern slope in the valley community of Bergall, in the canton of Graubünden, Switzerland. The mountainside location offers an unobstructed view of the mountainous landscape and the village’s roofs. The solid stone house was built 300 years ago. It was restored during the sixties, and great care was taken to combine its historic elements with functionality. The interior is constructed mainly of wood, as well as Bergell granite, which has been used in this region for generations.

Bergell, one of Graubünden’s southernmost valleys, extends from the village of Maloja, 1,815 m above sea level, all the way to the Italian town of Chiavenna, 330 m above sea level. The valley is distinguished by the Maira, which flows from Maloja Pass to Lake Comer. The Swiss part of the valley is 26 km long, ending at the border town of Castasegna, 696 m above sea level. The climate in the lower part of the valley is mild and almost Mediterranean. Palms grow in Castasegna’s gardens.

Idyllic stay

  • 5 of 5

Five of us rented this house and it was fabulous. We took side trips and long walks in the country, including to other villages. It was so much more "authentic" than other places in Switzerland. We felt like we lived there. One of our party met someone who sold her a music stand. We shopped at a store that was often empty and we just left money and took what we needed. It was three or so years ago but we want to go back someday. We sat in the back garden some days and just enjoyed being there. We drove to Italy close by to shop much more cheaply for food.

Gemütliche Ambience und aller Komfort in historischem Haus, plus Garten mit Traumaussicht.

  • 5 of 5

Vor vier Jahren verbrachten wir eine unvergessliche Woche in dem schönen und sehr komfortablen Haus 151 in Soglio. Dank diesem positiven Erlebnis haben wir unsere diesjährige Buchung für dieses Haus verlängert.

Wegen dem Bergsturz im nachbarlichen Bondo, kurz vor unserer Anreise, und der daraus folgenden Unsicherheiten betreffs Zugang zu Soglio und potentiellen weiteren Murgängen, mussten wir leider unsere Ferienpläne kurstfristig ändern.

Wir freuen uns jetzt aber auf einen Aufenthalt im nächsten Jahr in diesem sehr empfehlenswerten Ferienhaus.
