Faazihaus

A magnificent mountain panorama and pure air are the constant companions when spending a holiday at the Faazihaus in the Swiss Alps. The solid timber building on a sunny south-facing slope in the tiny mountain village of Martisberg was built in the 1990s on the foundations of a historical farmhouse (a so-called heathen house) and stood empty for decades in its shell condition. Now it has finally come to life!

Maison Bergdorf

A wildly romantic, park-like garden surrounds the Maison Bergdorf in the Swiss town of Interlaken in the Bernese Oberland. The villa was built in 1897 as a holiday home for a Canadian entrepreneur in the traditional chalet style. The owners, Stéphane Houlmann and Mirko Beetschen, have completely renovated the house and have added their own flair to the rooms through an interior design that skilfully plays with colours, shapes and materials.

Chasa Staila

The historic Chasa Staila is situated directly on the village square of Vnà – a small mountain village on a sunny slope in the Lower Engadine, Switzerland.

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.
