In the Swiss village Vals you can now enjoy a combination of 'Dutch Design' and 'Swiss Quality'. Villa Vals is a freestanding dwelling directly next to the famous Therme of Peter Zumthor. The luxurious villa is extremely quiet, offering breathtaking views of pristine nature.
The house – approximately 160m2 – is completely dug out of the mountainside. It offers room to for ten people (with a maximum of 12, in case at least 4 of which are children) and is surrounded by a spacious garden offering a great deal of privacy. A big glass façade opens out onto the terrace (60 m2) and offers a spectacular view on green meadows (snow-covered hillsides in the winter) and mountaintops.
The world famous Therme Vals by architect Peter Zumthor is situated within a stone's throw.
The hotel of the same name has an excellent restaurant ('Der Rote Saal'). The authentic village of Vals is situated conveniently close.
This quaint village without any (mass) tourism has escaped from the feeling of dullness.
It is by no means a village where time has stood still, or has become disconnected from reality,
but rather gives a view of the future of small-scale sustainability. It has industry, the springs of Valserwasser (www.valser.ch),
spas and hotels. Besides that, it has access to the hydro-electric power station of Zervreila sustainable energy.
There is even a 'milk pipeline' which, during the summer, delivers the milk from the 2000 meter high alms directly to the village.
You can ski, walk or cycle in the surroundings up to a height of 3.000 meters in a surreal peace and quiet.
