Other things to note

Avers is a traditional high valley with farming. Meet and cheese are available to buy at the local farmers. In the summer everyone is welcome to help make hay.
Right at the bottom of the valley is the world famous Boulder pard "Magic Wood". Young people of all over the world are meeting there to climb and boulder.
A great opportunity to explore are day trips to Chur, the oldest city of Switzerland, or the Tessin with its Lago Maggiore, Locarno and Lugano.
The skiing resort in the Avers valley is small but challenging, also for experienced skiers, snowboarders and those who like to go on skiing tours.
Bigger skiing areas such as Flims-Laax and Lenzerheide are less than an hour drive away.

Ulrike and Norbert were wonderful hosts. When we needed to change dates at short notice, they did so. When we arrived they greeted us warmly, and even had some excellent soup ready for us! They were great with our kids. House 79 is a gem - old, lots of wood, low doorways, very cosy, but with a well equipped kitchen and modern bathrooms. The surrounding countryside is exceptionally beautiful. We spent a wonderful few days here.

Ulrike und No sind wunderbare Gastgeber. Am Abend der Ankunft waren wir noch auf ein Bier zusammen mit den Nachbarn eingeladen, wobei wir schnell ins Gespräch kamen. Das Haus ist geräumig und die Küche komplett ausgestattet. Das urige Walserhaus ist liebevoll restauriert und es ist ein Traum für Liebhaber alter Häuser. Von Ulrike und No haben wir viel über das Haus und über das Tal mit seinen Einwohner erfahren. Auch bekamen wir Tipps zu Wanderungen und wo wir lokale Produkte erwerben konnten. Wir haben uns in dem Walserhaus wie zu Hause gefühlt und kommen gerne wieder.

Die Unterkunft in einem alten Walserhaus liegt in phantastischer Landschaft auf 2100m Höhe. Ulrike ist eine tolle Gastgeberin, die mich mit allen wichtigen Informationen versorgt hat. Das Zimmer war sehr sauber und die Küche enthielt alles, was man braucht. Ulrike servierte mir ein köstliches Frühstück. Gerne komme ich wieder!

Wir wurden sehr freundlich empfangen, das Haus ist sehr gut eingerichtet und für 4 Erwachsene absolut geräumig; Ulrike und No haben die Öfen bereits eingefeuert und auch Holz bereit gelegt; das Haus ist geheizt, das Feuer wärmt dazu und macht den Raum ganz gemütlich. Das köstliche Fleisch vom Bauer gleich über der Strasse ist ein superplus. Für Menschen ab Grösse 170 sind die Türrahmen sehr niedrig und was mehr oder weniger gewöhnungsbedürftig ist.

Response from Ulrike:
Die niedrigen Türrahmen gehören zur Strickbauweise der alten Walserhäuser, sind für die Statik wichtig, lassen sich also nicht verändern. Das macht den Charme dieses 500 Jahre alten Hauses aus. Gut, dass wir die Zimmerdecken erhöht haben und auch große Gäste gut stehen können.
