“Perfect location for exploring this wonderful unspoilt part of Italy”
We stayed in Trullo Alto for the first week of Easter holidays and it really was a perfect ‘home’ from which to enjoy Puglia. The house was well equipped, even down to the more than welcome bottle of wine and chilled Peroni which awaited us when we arrived late on the Saturday evening! There was enough space for us all both inside and outside, and we felt the children were able to make use of the pool and outdoors without us having to worry about anything.
The villa and grounds are well maintained and have good facilities – especially useful was the washer/dryer and large fridge which are located in a little outhouse behind the house. The views are fabulous! We enjoyed looking out onto fields of vegetables and olive groves whilst having our ‘aperitivo’ and cooking on the BBQ.
One of our party brought his bike along which enabled him to go out each morning and explore the countryside – perfect cycling conditions apparently!
The driveway/track up to the house was a little scary to start…. very narrow and we had a large Subaru Forrester….! However, we managed to survive the week with no mishaps or scratches to the car so it can be done!
Puglia is gorgeous…. very unspoilt and probably even better that we were off season. The food is amazing and incredibly good value. The quote of the holiday was that it would be hard to go back to Waitrose ice cream after all that wonderful gelato in Puglia (twice a day….!) And as for the burrata…. mozzarella in the UK will never taste as fresh!
“A comfortable, spacious, well equipped chalet, ideal for a group.”
This very comfortable 4 bedroom chalet is located in Klosters Dorf. This a small village a short bus ride from Klosters Platz. An easy walk down the hill takes you to the Madrissa ski hill, lots of fun but mainly T bars on the slope. A bus outside the chalet leaves twice an hour for Klosters Platz, the main, famous ski area. There are some magnificent ski runs and excellent restaurants on the slopes. We left our skis and boots in Klosters Platz on the first day at a rental shop at the bus/train stop which made things much easier. We took a bus into Klosters Platz every morning, always on time, and in our walking boots.
The bedrooms in the chalet were comfortable with plenty of wardrobe space and bedding. There is a very efficient heating system and lots of hot water. The wifi is fast and reliable. There is a laundry room, lots of cooking utensils and a lovely view of the mountain. At night we went to Klosters Platz, where there are some great restaurants. We went by bus or train and took a taxi home. The manager of the chalet on sight was very helpful. She got groceries in for us and helped us with transportation from the station and gave helpful advise. There is a big co-op grocery shop in Klosters Platz which is very good and quite reasonable, there is a smaller shop for basics close to the chalet. We thought the chalet was excellent value and had a superb holiday, with ages ranging from 19 to 69.
“We loved it!”
The chalet is great. It’s big, very well furnished and decorated. We were two families – 4 adults, plus 4 children between the ages of 1 and 5. The house had everything we needed. I couldn’t get enough of the view out the living room window. The red RhB trains (quietly) drove by several times an hour. The kids continuously ran outside to watch the trains. Madrisa gondola was a 5 min walk up the street. Our kids loved Madrisaland. Bus stop to Klosters Platz pretty much in front of the house. Most of the time we walked from Klosters Dorf to Klosters Platz through the village and pastures.
We stayed last month and had a lovely holiday. We used both Trulli and despite soaring temperatures it remained nice and cool inside. The new pool heating was very effective and meant the pool was perfect even for our 9 month old at the beginning of the season. There was a cherry tree next to one trulli which was covered in ripe cherries so we ate them all week straight off the tree!
Hire care essential, but with one there are plenty of places to explore. Read the comments book and go to the restaurant that you can walk to… Two of us went there one evening and has a lovely meal of mixed antipasti, a pizza and desert combined with a carafe of wine. Felt slightly guilty when the whole bill came to 33 Euros!
“Superb and spacious chalet with excellent views”
The chalet itself could not be better. We’ve never stayed in a better one. It is tasteful and spacious, the kitchen is excellent. The sauna and turkish bath are a true treat after a day in the snow. The terrace is really big and since we had only good whether we used it every day. The view from the chalet on the old village and mountains is really superb. Klosters is still as charming as it was decades ago and is unspoiled by mass tourism. All in all, you will never regret a stay in Chalet Rhaetia.
“Home from home in a beautiful village location”
Great cottage and perfect for a girls weekend away. Well stocked kitchen and comfortable sitting room. Lovely location within easy drive of beautiful Burford. We had a great time.
We had a wonderful time with our family in both trulli’s Alto and Olivo. The trulli’s exceeded our expectations. Well managed booking proces, and we fellt very welcome on our arrival. Everything is at hand in the trulli’s, we had really nothing left to worry about. As experienced Italy travellers we are always prepared to solve problems ourselves, but no problems at all this time! Nice restaurants and supermarkets at 10 minutes (by car). Fine kitchen to prepare your own dinners. Nice terrace, lovely countryside, and superb pool, even in summer heated by the sun! That would be an improvement though. Talk to the neighbour farmer: he will bring you fresh vegetables, tomatoes etc. – Trip Advisor September 2014.
