Overview

About the property

Sunny and quiet location - next to the Bünda valley ski lift, the cross country slopes and walking paths. Train, bus and Parsenn in walking distance.

The apartment is well appointed and would suit families and small groups equally. The apartment would suit beginners with a really good two stage nursery slope outside the front door. So effectively we are ski in/ski out for children and beginners.

Children can be watched on the nursery slope from the apartment or from the nearby Bunda hotel restaurant.

The ski school meeting point is just across the road.

There are 10 apartments in our half of the block.

The bus and railway station is 200metres away and the local bus fare cost is included in the tourist tax.

The buses take you to just about everywhere in the town including Rinerhorn, Jacobshorn and Pischa Mountains, ice skating and ice hockey stadium (Davos has a seriously good team), swimming pool, museums, casino, cinema, shopping, horse riding, sledging etc.

Nice quiet location yet convenient for all that Davos can offer. Horse drawn sleigh rides outside the apartment.

A car is not required from our apartment as most things can be reached on foot or by free bus.

Many English DVDs, some English books and games.

Barbara Schneider, our agent in Davos, knows the apartment very well, has an office nearby and will deal with any problems.

Please see pictures to get a better idea of the interior and setting.

About Barbara Schneider

I am a Swiss national physiotherapist married to a Brit and living in England.

I learnt and our children learnt to ski in Davos (on the Bunda!) and the apartment has served us well since 1994.

We come to the apartment as a family every Christmas and New Year and again in the summer for walking and (hand) cycling.

Barbara Schneider purchased this apartment in 1994

Why Barbara Schneider chose Prättigau/Davos

We bought this apartment mainly because my parents lived here and my brother has a house here - plus it has all the downhill skiing, cross country skiing and hiking we all enjoy.

Our two children learnt to ski here (outside the front door) and they still come back here though they roam the main mountains now "looking for powder".

In summer the property is surrounded by meadows and mountains.

A car is not necessary when staying in our apartment as it is possible to get to most things on foot or by the free bus.

In the winter there is so much the non-skier can do. This was a town before skiing (popularised by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who was here with his wife for TB treatment) and plenty to offer beyond skiing.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is quite spacious even when we are all here.

There is plenty of kitchen equipment, crockery, glasses etc to entertain.

The Bunda trainer lift is a real bonus. It suits beginners and children alike and has two stages to facilitate progress.

Even non-beginners will use it because it is steep enough at the top to practice something - especially in bad weather because the runs are surrounded by trees which improves the visibility so much.

There are also two "in the trees" tracks for the adventurous to take on.

In the summer there is also sailing and windsurfing (and classes) on the Davos lake which is about 5 minutes walk away. My brothers children all learned to windsurf in Davos.

There are lovely narrow gauge mountain train journeys to had also. Over 150 years old it is full of history and there are many trips to be had.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"My son was just beside himself when we found CBBC's on the TV."

"A perfect stay, so quiet and relaxing".

"Lovely rooms - so nice to have some space".

"We left our skis and boots in a (heated) ski locker up at Parsenn - that was easy".
