When planning you dream vacation or, in my case, travel around the world, there are plenty of options for booking exciting accommodations. From popular travel search engines to individual hotel sites, you will find a large offering for your vacation lodging. However, if you are looking for a unique, one of a kind opportunity at a great price, the AirBnB.com could be the perfect option. Thus, when the Switzerland travel led us to St.Moritz, one of the world’s most famous and most expensive holiday resorts and the origin point of Glacier Express, the Airbnb was a natural choice.
St.Moritz is everything you dream off. Nestled in the middle of Swiss Alps, featuring dream like scenery of mountains, lakes, rivers and crisp mountain air. Posh, chic, elegant and exclusive. When visiting St. Moritz, you want to take it all in and make it an experience to remember. I found that perfect package in Elegant and Comfortable Studio 127 at Airbnb.
Taking our journey from St.Gallen on the scenic train ride through Alpine tunnels and bridges, we arrived in St.Mortiz and quickly hopped on the local bus to Champfer. Only few minutes ride and we found ourselves in a mountain paradise.
The evergreens and red pelargoniums lining the entry to the resort, we checked in and were led to our studio.
The posh mountain-cabin decor instantly invoked a felling of comfort. The room was open and airy, with earthy, wooden furnishings, large bed with crisp white linens and feather-light comforters for those chilly mountain nights.
The studio featured a comfy sofa for an afternoon reading and a large desk for travel writing. The windows were lining the wall with a balcony opening up to the views of the Alps and the path through the mountain trails to the city. We just walked in. Yet, we instantly knew we did not want to leave…ever…
After a long train ride we were starting to feel cravings for a little something. We first stopped for a quick salad with a view in the cozy restaurant upstairs.
A casual stroll through the mountain path, we ventured further for Swiss delights. Only 5 min walk to the cutest small town ever, we settled for a dinner at Giardino Mountain restaurant.
Returning, we stopped by at the lounge room to enjoy warm sun peeking through the top to bottom windows, plush couches, the fireplace and the piano ready for the afternoon tune. Quiet and relaxing moments we relished.
Quick afternoon nap with open windows letting the freshness of the Alpine air in and we were ready for a posh relaxation. Is there anything more perfect that a full day of mountain cool air, walking and hiking to be now wrapped in a comfy late afternoon of hot sauna, Jacuzzi and swimming?
We finished the evening with the cocktail and dreaming of staying longer…..or forever.
