The patricians of the old days knew why they built their stately homes right here: La Punt has a favorable strategic situation at the foot of the former trade route across the Albula pass. The erstwhile farming village Chamues-ch lies at the entrance to the mystical chamois valley, the Val Chamuera.
To this day, the people are proud of their richly adorned farmhouses and stately patrician homes dating from the 16th and 17th century: the Chesa Merleda with its bright white pinnacles, the Albertini houses with their ornamental facades, or the impressive Sandoz house.

The patricians who built their grand houses here knew exactly what they were doing: the location of sun-blessed La Punt Chamues-ch is not only strategically perfect, at the foot of the Albula Pass, but idyllic, too, beside the River Inn. Dominating the village are richly adorned farmhouses and grand patrician houses from the 16th and 17th centuries – as well as gems such as the famous restaurant Chesa Pirani, with its baroque panelled parlour and two Michelin stars. In winter, the snow-covered road over the pass is closed to traffic, and becomes a thrilling toboggan run. More winter fun is on offer along the idyllic cross-country ski trails and the signposted Nordic Walking tours, and on a variety of snowshoeing routes and ski touring itineraries. Children are promised their own snowy adventures thanks to the Müsella children’s ski lift, which together with the neighbouring playground makes this a prized spot for families.
