Chalet Arve - superb apartment in the Swiss Alps
The property is almost directly opposite the Hotel Walserhof frequented by Prince Charles and his family when they come to visit Klosters. Klosters is the much more sedate version of its larger and somewhat racier neighbour, Davos, with which it shares very extensive ski slopes.
The shops, restaurants, cable car and sports centre are all in the immediate vicinity - a mere 3-5 minutes walk away. The neighbouring Hotels Steinbock and Walserhof also offer splendid dining facilities.
The apartment comprises two very decently sized bedrooms each with its own door opening on to the balcony. The master double bedroom is ensuite and the twin bedroom has easy access to its adjoining shower room.
The sitting room also leads on to the balcony and has comfortable seating for all guests. HD widescreen television with U.K. satellite stations, DVD player and numerous DVDs in many languages. One of two sofas opens up to become a comfortable double bed. The kitchen is modern, well appointed and equipped with everything you should need. Equipped as well with a coffee machine, sandwich maker, raclette and fondue.
Downstairs, you will find the superb sauna and jacuzzi centre together with plunge pool, shower room and WC. There are also loungers to relax in. There is even a ski room and ample space to store all the outdoor kit you would probably prefer not to bring into the apartment. The underground garage for your car is fully secure. There is also outdoor private parking.
Free wireless internet access throughout the apartment, ethernet connection also available!
So much to do!
Klosters itself is spoilt for the range of activities it can offer, but when you combine it with its neighbour Davos, just a few minutes up the valley, the scope for things to do becomes almost endless. For a start there are two golf courses, 54 ski lifts, 300km of ski pistes, 3 giant sledge runs, 100km of winter walking trails (and many more summer ones), ice hockey, ice skating, curling, horse-drawn sleighs, horse riding, tennis, 9 hole golf course (Klosters), 18 hole golf course (Davos), mini-golf, mountain biking, downhill cycling, horse riding, fishing, water sports, indoor/outdoor tennis, summer tobogganing at Schatzalp, rollerblading, clay pigeon shooting, mountain railways.
Tip! Get a guest card and receive a discount on many activities, entrance fees, green fees and free public transport (local trains and buses). Also there is half price admission to the tennis courts and outdoor swimming pools. In the summer, a guest card gives you access to all the mountain cable cars and railways completely free of charge!
