St. Moritz, Switzerland
This charming 400 year old chesa is located in the village of La Punt, a mere 10 minutes drive from St. Moritz. The ski lifts of Celerina where you can enter the St Moritz ski resort are even closer. The architecture of this completely restored historic building is an excellent example of how to save the original spirit of a traditional Swiss Chesa and at the same time create a whole new layout appropriate to the highest standards.
A total of four bedrooms make it a perfect place for a family holiday. if you want to invite friends you will find a separate small studio apartment in the ground floor which allows a high level of privacy. The undisputed highlight of the chalet is the historic fully wooden dining room which is mentioned in several books on Engadine architecture. As well as the old original beams which you find everywhere in the house the dining room gives a wonderful cosy and authentic touch to the whole building. Right next to it is the semi open kitchen equipped to professional standards and a living room with a high ceiling which provides a very lofty atmosphere.
Coming from the famous slopes of St. Moritz you will certainly enjoy the stylish sauna in the basement. After all this is a wonderful unpretentious though luxurious place for those who are looking for the real Engadin living experience. Due to the fact that the two double bedrooms on the 3rd floor share one bathroom on the 2nd floor we recommend them only to be used by children but they might as well be used by adults if needed. The Chesa is a semi-detached chalet close to the gourmet restaurant Chesa Pirani and the main road leading to St. Moritz.
