Türalihus

The Türalihus is part of a historic ensemble of buildings in the centre of Valendas, Switzerland. This small mountain village on the banks of the Rhine in the Safien Valley is known for its stately town houses. First built in 1485, the Türalihus has been extended multiple times over the centuries – with annexes, additional levels, and the stairwell from which the house derives its name. The house stood empty from 1941 until 2007, when the Swiss “Vacations in a Listed Building” Foundation acquired it from the son of the well-known Swiss architect Rudolf Olgiati and transformed it into the holiday home it is today.
