Description of the holiday rental
The Maiensäss can accommodate 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children. The house is divided into two separate rooms. Right after the entrance you will find the small but functional kitchen. A sink with cold running water is at your disposal. Kitchen linen is ready for you. The refrigerator will be replaced by the spensa and the cellar. Heating and cooking is done with wood that is at your disposal. The water boiler, which is integrated in the wood stove, supplies about 10l of warm/hot water, which you can use for (dis)washing. It is common practice in the Prättigau to say that wood gives warmth twice, once when "chopping wood" and once when lighting the fire. An appropriate economical use of wood is therefore highly appreciated. In the living room, a cosy Swedish stove provides pleasant warmth on cool summer evenings. The living room is comfortably furnished with a corner seat and a single bed. If required, an additional mattress can be placed on the floor. The transition to the area with the double bed is kept open. The well in front of the house offers washing facilities, in the house there is a conventional toilet available. Bathroom linen is available for you.
Surrounded by grassland and forest, the Maiensäss "Rütland" is enthroned high above the valley floor of the Prättigau. The Maiensäss with its Swiss stone pine living room, built with a lot of handicraft flair, is situated in a magnificent panoramic location at around 1575m above sea level. The charming hideaway is finished to a very high standard and furnished with stylish, beautiful wooden furniture. The seating area in front of the house invites you to relax and enjoy, there are deck chairs and a fire bowl for barbecue. Washing is done with fresh spring water outside at the well or then at the heatable laundry tub. As a welcome guest in Maiensäss Rütland you should be able to use a wood-burning stove and wood-burning cooker. The electricity comes from a solar system and is therefore used sparingly. You have the possibility to charge your electronic devices.
The cottage can be reached by private car via Heubergstrasse (you need a driving permit of 20 Fr. per week, which the host will be happy to organise for you on request). Own parking space at the feeder road. It is only a short walk from the road (level stretch, approx. 200m). The check-in is done by the owner, who will gladly explain everything to you in detail. He will of course also help you with the transport of your luggage.
In the village of Fideris (approx. 15 minutes by car) you will find a grocery store, a bakery and an idyllically situated open-air swimming pool with a small gastronomic offer. An extensive network of hiking trails is literally at your feet. Mountain bike tours are possible from the house. At the beginning of the plateau of the Fideriser Heuberge lies the mountain house Arflina with restaurant and children's playground. The Heuberge can be reached by car in 15 minutes via the Heubergstrasse. You can rent scooters or bike boards for the descent in the Berghaus.
