A lovely week in the mountains
I stayed in the chalet for a week in July with 11 friends. We had a lovely time! The manager met us at the train station and brought our luggage to the house. The house is well-equipped with plenty of dishes and utensils for a week of cooking. We thoroughly enjoyed the view from the balcony upstairs, and ate our breakfast there usually. There are many opportunities for hikes in the mountains, as well as a short train ride to the town of Arosa. In Arosa there is a gondola to a restaurant and a panoramic view of the alps. It is also a short ride to Chur, which has many cultural opportunities. We had a delightful dinner in the next town, Litziruti. Some members of our group took short walks along the river, and others of us walked for hours in the mountains. We found that there was more to do than we had time for. We would happily return for another vacation!
Great stay in a very comfortable chalet!
We stayed at the Chalet im Wieselti with our extended family (10 people in total) and had a great week. The chalet was very comfortable and could easily accommodate us all. The amenities are great and it really felt like a home away from home. Location was excellent for us, close enough to Arosa for skiing but also great hiking possibilities from the doorstep. The owners and caretaker were very helpful and friendly and we will definitely be back!
we had a lovely time, the house was beautiful and clean, overall an amazing holiday.
It was a perfect vacation. The Chalet is very clean, comfortable, equipped with all important things and with perfect Service nearby the house.
we were very impressed with the owner, she communicated with us numerous times before our trip and checked in by email on the first day. the chalet is very spacious, clean, well equipped kitchen, magnificent view. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning some day...
Great Scenery, Noisy Location
The view from the front windows of this chalet, down into the valley towards Chur and up the valley toward Litziruti and Arosa, are wonderful. However, the chalet is located just a few metres above the main road between Chur and Arosa, which means there is almost non-stop traffic noise from just before 0600 until between 2000 and 2100. This traffic includes trucks, buses, cars, motorcycles, and many are being operated by people who believe they are race car/bike drivers. Driving between Langwies and Chur is a challenge unless you are very used to mountain driving and the trip even takes some courage for the passenger.
The chalet has well-equipped kitchens, with all the required cooking and preparation tools. There is HD satellite service but the TVs are old-fashioned and do not transmit the better quality picture to the viewer. The bedrooms are very small, with very little space around the beds to get in or out of bed without bumping into a wall. There was also a very limited provision of linen with only enough provided for each occupant, rather than enough for linen changes, one bath towel, one hand towel, one facecloth per person, and sheet and duvet/pillow covers for each bed which was to be occupied (and we were there for two weeks so did expect at least the offer of clean towels). The caretakers, the Ashwandens, were very friendly and convenient as they live next door.
The village of Langwies was very friendly and has a good shop, the Dorfladen, and a good pub/restaurant, the Edelweiss Gasthaus. The train to and from Chur is an excellent way to travel down into the valley and the timings are extremely reliable.
Hiking into the mountains was a real treat, especially with the prospect of good food and drink along the way, such as was available from the Pirigen and Heimeli. Days spent walking were terrific with fresh air and lovely vistas.
Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are pleased you particularly enjoyed the special scenery, local shop and train service, modern kitchens, and wonderful hiking on offer.
We were very disappointed to hear about the noise which has never been an issue before, in fact quite the contrary, guests usually appreciate the tranquillity and the fact that deer even come as far as the front door on occasion. We did follow up immediately with Arosa Tourism who have subsequently informed us that unfortunately there was a one-off Harley Davidson and Audi Automobile outing during the period of your stay. We can only conclude you are referring to this and apologize for this exceptional event.
One of the aspects of being in the mountains, is indeed the mountain roads, and although the local government of Chur continues to invest in newer and wider roads, a natural element will always remain.
Bath, bed linen, and towels etc. are provided on a per person basis and guests can either use the washing machine and tumble dryer on an unlimited basis during their stay or request additional fresh linen from our caretaker at a small additional cost. We will ensure we make this information more clear to our guests in future.
Out of the five bedrooms available, we have opted to put in a double bed rather than two singles in one of the rooms. In this room there is a compromise on space but guests prefer the larger bed or can choose one of the other four bedrooms according to their preference.
The TVs are not flat screen but the picture quality is standard and they do show all the cable stations on offer. Whilst we advertise Cable TV and unlimited hi-speed WiFi, we don't make our guests aware that the TVs are not HD. We will consider making future guests aware of this point until the time they are upgraded.

The driving range was extended in 2007 and the new clubhouse and restaurant was opened in June 2009. The location and well maintained course make this a very beautiful and enjoyable course for all levels SKI: The Arosa ski pass also includes the train fare to Langwies station which is in walking distance of the Chalet. In winter, deer are frequent visitors in the evening, and the chalet is in walking distance of the local village amenities. Also, 15 minutes away towards Chur is ski resort of Hochwang.
