In 1883, Rudolf von Salis-Muralt commissioned the famous architect Nicolaus Hartmann to transform this 1590 farmhouse into a stately patrician villa. Since 1982, the Chesa Salis has been a hotel with the charm of a private home. Meter thick walls radiate warmth and aristocratic generosity. 14 comfortable guest rooms bear witness of old-world craftsmanship. In the comfortable lounges, guests enjoy culinary delights and regional specialties.


The Romantik Hotel Chesa Salis, a 16th-century, Engadine patrician mansion nestled in a pretty hamlet, is a gem. It has a pastoral setting, splendid antique furniture, an outstanding restaurant, lovely bedrooms, and quality in every detail. The hotel, built in 1590, was originally a farmhouse owned by the Moeli family, wealthy merchants from Italy. Later, the home was bought by the aristocratic von Salis family. The noble heritage of the building is witnessed today by its meter-thick walls, handsome craftsmanship, beautiful wood paneling, outstanding paintings, handsome beamed ceilings, intricate plaster etching on the exterior walls, frescoed ceilings, and colorful ceramic fireplaces. When you enter the reception area, there is an eclectic mix of old and new with handsome antiques blending with black leather sofas, and a contemporary glass counter highlighted by a modern painting.

Originally a farmhouse, it has belonged to Grisons nobility, the Von Salis family, since 1877. Nicholas Hartmann converted it into a patrician villa in 1883. Wooden loggias, facades with historic sgraffiti and wrought-iron work adorn this hotel. The rooms are painted, panelled with stone pine and decorated with stucco. Original stone pine rooms and the Von Salis room contain furniture from different eras.
