Our home

Our home is our castle. It was built in 1914 - more than 100 years ago - as a doctor's villa and represents the style of the "Magic Mountain"-period of Davos as a high altitude health-resort. Every one and then, we put quite an effort into some gentle refurbishing, so the house remains in great shape and meets all modern standards. Central-heating, a modern kitchen, a comfortable bathroom with a built-in sauna, Wi-Fi, two spacious and bright living-rooms and three bedrooms guarantee for a relaxing stay in a wonderful atmosphere. In the pergola, overlooking a big garden or on the large terrace on the second floor, you can sunbathe in privacy even in winter with absolutely no other people watching you. It is very quiet and safe, in spite of the bus-stop being only 30 meters away. The public bus takes 5 minutes to Davos and runs from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. If you are adventurous enough to drive on snow, you can also use our Suzuki 4WD. A small but considerable limitation: Our house is neither accessible for wheelchairs nor adequately furnished for small children. And: we have a very gentle and easy-going cat called 'Black Johnny'.

Who we are

  1. We, Susi (63) and Andrea (64), are a semi-retired, childless, married couple. Susi is a teacher and worked as headmaster of several public primary schools, Andrea is a vet and public health professional. Both of us still deal with an interesting range of mandates as consultants. In parallel with reducing our burden of work, travelling, exploring culture, golf, wildlife and landscape, combined with taking care of someone else's home gain increasing importance in our life.
