On reaching Arosa, continue up the road a further 200 metres.

Turn left just before the Petrol Station (signs to Untersee). At the bottom of the hill (after 100m you reach bus stop Alteinplatz), turn left into Alteinstrasse / Neubachstrasse and follow the road another 100 metres to the next bus stop shelter Wetterweide.

Excellent Family Holiday

5 of 5 stars “We have holidayed in the apartment at Chalet Runca twice and have just made a reservation for a return visit next year. The apartment has always been clean and ready for our arrival. The apartment is situated opposite the ski bus stop which takes you straight into town and access to the slopes making it a perfect place to stay for families with young children…ours are 2, 6 and 8 years old. There are plenty of good slopes for children as well as the more advanced skiers and good tuition is available..

Warm and Cosy

The apartment was very cozy with nice furniture, clean and nicely located in walking distance to the lake and the gondola! Furthermore, the host was very friendly and charming! Always again 🙂

We loved it!

"We loved it!" 4 of 5 stars. Helen and Mike are very welcoming and have everything well organized. The in-house equipment rental combined with Mike's expertise made renting equipment cheaper and more convenient and a more personal experience. Their home has everything you'd need for a comfortable holiday and is in a good location as it's walking distance from the center but also has a bus stop right outside which of course runs on swiss time! The village is beautiful and has ample shopping and dining venues. The skiing is VARIED and it's easy to ski from one area to the next and every easy to end up in the center at the end of the day for a much needed glass of mulled wine!

A lovely large chalet in a beautiful resort. The self-catering option was good for us, having several small children/babies. It is not too far to walk into town (~15 mins with small children), to the skating rink, a swimming pool etc. The chalet is well equipped, particularly for young children with lots of toys, books and games provided, and the owners were kind enough to send a forgotten teddy home to us.

A beautiful Chalet

A beautiful chalet, original and yet with contemporary decor, ideal for a very large family and friends; We have a magical Christmas party here, very family friendly and helpful, short distances to the ski area (bus in front of the house), within walking distance to the village, nevertheless very quiet, practical equipment (ski cellar, garage, sauna, great kitchen); We felt immediately all “at home”. – Just great, Chalet Runca! THANK YOU!

The Chalet is very nice and clean, located close to all activities like swimming, biking, hiking, but also shopping. Our hosts were very friendly and supportive. We had a great time in Arosa. We can sincerely recommend this location with pleasure.

Top Stay

The apartment was our accommodation at the Gigathlon 2018. The welcome from Helen was very warm and we immediately felt at home. At our request, she had us set up an extra bed in the living room. Furthermore, she granted us a late check-out. Staff 10.0 Facilities 10.0 Cleanliness 10.0 Comfort 10.0 Location 10.0 Value for money 10.0

Absolutely amazing

We stayed in Chalet Runca apartment for 10 days for our wedding anniversary. The apartment was clean, spacious, light and comfortable, better than the photos show. The view of the Alps are stunning and the air is so clean! The walks are lovely. Having squirrels and birds eating out of my hands on Squirrel walk was awesome. The train journey from Chur to Arosa is wonderful, definitely worth the ride. Helen and Mike were the most splendid hosts, nothing was too much trouble and they made us feel extremely welcome. We will definitely be booking our holiday here next year.

Family Van Zyl

by kathkeen, Denver, Colorado We were a family of 11 (ranging in age from 1 to 72) and we loved Chalet Runca! We were all comfortable in our rooms and had plenty of common space in which to hang out together. Helen is quick to communicate and follows up on anything that comes up. She and her family are lovely people – the kids even came up one night to show us how to operate the TV! Chalet Runca is very convenient to the bus and also easy walking access to many parts of town. We were lucky with all the snow so we had an amazing week enjoying all of the winter wonders of Arosa. We highly recommend this chalet! Thank you!
