Spend the night in the Chasa Chavalaina in Müstair! The almost 770-year-old hotel on the Ofen Pass connecting Graubünden and South Tyrol has made history. The guest room made of Swiss stone pine shines in all its old splendour. The tables and chairs in the restaurant are the same as before, even the traditional kitchen is unchanged and offers space for eight guests. Every move, every renovation in the hotel was made with feeling and care and in close consultation with experts and local craftsmen.The spacious garden behind the house is enchanting, with its summer flowers and the tranquillity of the place, a welcome retreat for city dwellers and those seeking peace and quiet!

Another option is to stay directly in the World Heritage property: the  Convent St. John in Müstair has a cosy guest house.
