Hotel Schweizerhof in the Swiss Alps

House Crazy Sarah has long been smitten with the Alps. Snow capped mountains, rich creamy food, adorable chalets, hiney-hugging Lederhosen. What’s not to love?

When she came across Hotel Schweizerhof Santa Maria located in Val Mustair, Switzerland, she fell in love all over again.

The Hotel & Restaurant Schweizerhof dates back over 110 years.

Situated in a picturesque mountain valley in what UNESCO has designated the Val Müstair biosphere area, the pristine setting is a sight to behold.

You can almost hear The Sound of Music echoing from a few peaks over!

The hotel website in translation says:

“The flair of the Belle Epoch has been preserved: the spaciousness of the rooms, the particularity of the ambiance and many gems of the time whisk you away into a mood of deceleration and inspiration.”

Isn’t that lovely?  🙂
