This guest house in the Swiss Alps can be rented for a weekend – in 2015 it was renovated from an old wooden chalet. The interiors are quite unusual – the abundance of wood, typical for such houses, are mixed with elements of retro style, and even floral motifs that can be seen in wallpaper and decor. In total there are 8 bedrooms, 3 living rooms, and several terraces. An interesting feature – every room has a bright bathroom: pink, blue, white, and all of them are decorated in the style of 50’s and 60’s. But the best place, of course, is a veranda overlooking the mountains. Fascinating!
