Vacation in a holiday home in Grisons
Also known as Graubünden, Grisons is the only trilingual canton in Switzerland. Thirty percent of the inhabitants earn their livelihood through tourism, whether by running holiday rentals, holiday apartments, vineyards or by renting ski equipment. With 615 lakes, over 900 mountain summits and 150 valleys, nature's opulence is visible all year round. A bold and unique topography with crisp mountain air, glaciers and forests has given birth to numerous health spas and retreats. Mountain railways and holiday houses interspersed between the slopes make it convenient to explore the region.
Holiday houses in Grisons : Things to do
Watch the mountain farmers go about their business as they tend to sheep, cows and crop. Chestnuts and grapes feature extensively in this region replete with meadows, fruit orchards and fields. Sighting the stone eagle, bearded vulture, chamois, ibex or deer is quite possible right from the windows of holiday apartments. Winter attracts travelers in large numbers to ski stations like Laax, St. Moritz, Scuol, Arosa, Davos and Lenzerheide, while summertime is equally attractive for biking, trekking and golf. Mountain pass roads are easy to navigate for motorcyclists, while families with kids can always book a car. Holiday homes and holiday apartments will generally give you required information to plan a comfortable stay.
Les Grisons: The film
Holiday rentals are likely to report a spurt in tourism following the release of the film 'Les Grisons' which explicitly mentions Saint Moritz, a popular ski resort in the region. Directed by the maverick Olivier Assayas (of Boarding Gate fame) and starring France's eternal favorite Juliette Binoche, don't be too surprised if staff at holiday homes and holiday houses urge you to go watch the film. A vacation in a holiday home is the nicest way to enjoy the hospitality of Grisons.
