Built in 2001, this luxury chalet faces south and west with views across the valley in a bright, sunny position. It offers 4 double or twin bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (1 en suite), a shower and steam room and a sauna. It is rated 4*+ Luxury by the local Tourist Board. No need to hire a car for this chalet. Trains from the airport drop you just 5 minutes' walk away. A bus stop is 50m from the chalet, and the free and free bus ferries you around the village and between the ski areas. The nearest bubble car, ski area, ski rental shop and ski school is just 5 minutes' walk away.The kitchen is equipped with every facility including latest cooker/microwave and hob, etc. Even a fondu set is provided!Large fridge/freezer. the kitchen and bathrooms are fitted with Italian tiles. The décor is modern/cozy with paintings sourced from Denmark, and traditional antique local prints. There are traditional Swiss wooden chairs as well as comfy sofas. Fitted carpet throughout. Bedrooms are lined with walls and ceilings in traditional pine. Cable TV, including several English channels radio, CD, DVD as well as WiFi throughout the house. A large area for ski clothing and equipment. All washing facilities, including washing machine, drier, iron, ironing board. Stunning views, just 5 mins walk from the nearest cable car. There is an English letting agent in Klosters to provide information.

Access to over 350km of world-renowned ski slopes. A creche for the very young run by fully qualified staff, + specialist children's ski school 5 minutes away.

Klosters is justifiably world famous as a ski resort. Offering everything from beginners to black runs and huge off piste areas- no wonder Prince Charles goes there! The Ski Club of Great Britain has a rep there throughout the season. There are 5 different ski schools. But what makes Klosters so special is that it is still also a small traditional Swiss village with wooden chalets. Permanent population is just 3000. For non-skiers there are walks through glorious forests and trips to 18th century shopping towns such as Chur, and many traditional Swiss tearooms - so different from purpose built resorts!

In Summer there is a huge outdoor swimming pool, a sailing lake at Davos, walks/treks/and climbs. For children there are playgrounds, zoos, horse rides. This is Heidi Country with specially marked walks amongst the tiny villages. For adults, there is even a tour of the highest vineyard in Europe.

A PRIVATE SAUNA AND STEAM ROOM/JET SHOWER WELLNESS CENTRE INSTALLED DOWNSTAIRS! A sauna at the end of a tough day on the ski slopes is heaven,

About Mark Fox

We are a family who bought the chalet for our own family holidays to give our children a chance to learn to ski, just as I learned as a small boy. I learned in the neighbouring valley, so had very good local knowledge as to where to buy. Now they are teenagers and totally competent on any black run or off-piste. But they all learned from being small children in the local ski school and grew to love the resort and the area. We still gather for family holidays and ski there as well as enjoy summer rambling and hiking. Our 12yr old describes it as his 'favourite place on earth' - you can't say better than that!

Mark Fox purchased this chalet in 2001

Why Mark Fox chose Klosters

Car hire in Switzerland is very expensive, and I can't be bothered with snow chains and parking. This property is a walk to one ski area and the pass stops 50m away to the other. The railway station is a 5 minute walk, so we never need a car in winter, just arrive and leave by train from the airport. There are spectacular views across the mountains. No point in a chalet that feels like the middle of a city! We also wanted a proper 'house/chalet' feel, not just an anonymous flat in a apartment block. It feels like a proper home. It is equipped for our family holidays, not a commercial let. So much better than the average chalet.

What makes this chalet unique

Chalets rather than just flats are rare in this part of Switzerland. We like the space and privacy of a proper house. It feels much more open and gives more freedom. The only view from lot of ski places is just the building next door! You would never know that you were in high mountains! We wanted a spectacular view. Just looking out on the sunrise or sunset at the ever-changing mountain view is special all by itself.

There aren't many chalets that have a sauna and steam room just for themselves. It offers an amazing luxury experience that can normally only be found at the world's most expensive hotels.

Family stay at Chalet Rhaetia

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a great family holiday staying at Chalet Rhaetia. The chalet is of a very high standard and it was a pleasure to stay there. Location is great with great views across the valley to mountains (when clouds permit!!!), and trains!

Ideal location with public transport working very well, especially with the 'guest cards' giving much of the local travel free of charge.

Website was great for information and we did a number of the suggested walks and itineries. Mitzi too was really helpful when we arrived with plenty of local info.

A week was definitely not long enough and we would hope to visit again before too long.

Late Spring Skiing

  • 5 of 5
Spent a very enjoyable and warm week in Klosters Dorf in mid April towards the end of the ski season The Chalet is very well appointed and was very comfortable for the 2 families sharing it. The quality is typical Swiss. modern and has everything for an excellent skiing week , and the advice provided allows a fast start and trip to the slopes.
The local contact was very helpful and could not be faulted.
All the kids being complete I pods. phone etc fans were overjoyed to find free wifi.
chalet is within walking distance of one lift and the bus stop is about 60m away with an 8 minute ride to the Gondola that leads to Parsenn For our stay travel was a bit inconvenient requiring most days for us to travel to Davos to catch lifts up the mountain as this season the snow was limited, but the resort had done a great job of keeping 2 areas open. The snow was excellently groomed and of course the slopes at this time were not busy. With the local cards provided as part of the kurtax you have access to all buses and trains so this does not cost, and during the high season clearly the transport is more frequent and the skiing allows runs down to Klosters.
The chalet is pretty convenient for those arriving by train as Klosters Dorf station is only 400m walk and definitely Klosters is more scenic and Swiss than Davos.
Despite having lived in CH for 3 years this was first time we had skied this area, and definitely plan to do some day trips next year

For the warm afternoons the terrace is nice to sit out and enjoy the spectacular view. This seating could be perhaps more substantial : I suspect in winter you would not use it.

We have stayed in several chalets and locations in Switzerland and I can recommend this as a lovely holiday location.

A Perfect Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in Mark's home. If you are looking for the perfect ski vacation base, particularly for a family or more than one couple, this is the place for you.

It is a beautifully designed ski chalet. You walk into a ground floor complete with ski storage room, clothing racks that can easily accommodate 8 peoples' ski gear and a laundry room. There is a lovely kitchen where you can easily cook a delicious meal and a spacious living room and dining room and outdoor patio with spectacular views of the mountains, valley and town. The beds are very comfortable, especially after a long day of skiing.

You step out the door and either walk to the Madrissa left or jump on the bus to easily access the other ski areas. Note to skiers: We found the ski options at Madrissa to be very limited and preferred to catch the bus to Klosters Platz, where you can catch the gondola to the Parsenn ski area. You can also easily catch the train to Jacobshorn. Mark's recommended ski rental shop was terrific. They had a good selection of high performance skis and happily switched them out to better accomodate our desires.

Finally, the restaurant, Bargis Gasthaus, right next door, is cozy with friendly staff and good cordon blue and ravioli.

The online description of the property was accurate. Mark was extremely responsive to e-mail and helpful. We have rented vacation homes and apartments in Argentina, Uruguay, Belize, France, Italy, Malta, England and the US, and this home offered among the best ratios of quality to money spent.

From Grandpa Bob at 75 to the kids at 10, 12 and 14, everyone loved our vacation in this lovely home. We highly recommend it and we intend to return.

Good Klosters chalet

  • 4 of 5
A lovely chalet, with a homely feel to it, met the description given on the internet. We (children especially) enjoyed watching the train weave up the valley from the patio area, and it really was a short walk (achievable with small kids) to the station. Mitzi was very helpful, and the summertime tourist tax covers a transport pass for a huge range of cable cars. We found the broadband a bit tempermental.
We would recommend this chalet.
Stayed July 2010.
