Centrally located in Klosters within 5 minutes' walk of the cable car and shops. Very large south/west facing balcony with superb views. Sleep 4-6.
The property is almost directly opposite the Hotel Walserhof frequented by Prince Charles and his family when they come to visit Klosters. Klosters is the much more sedate version of its larger and somewhat racier neighbour, Davos, with which it shares very extensive ski slopes.
The shops, restaurants, cable car and sports centre are all in the immediate vicinity - a mere 3-5 minutes walk away. The neighbouring Hotels Steinbock and Walserhof also offer splendid dining facilities.
The apartment comprises two very decently sized bedrooms each with its own door opening on to the balcony. The master double bedroom is ensuite and the twin bedroom has easy access to its adjoining shower room.
The sitting room also leads on to the balcony and has comfortable seating for all guests. HD widescreen television with U.K. satellite stations, DVD player and numerous DVDs in many languages. One of two sofas opens up to become a comfortable double bed. The kitchen is modern, well appointed and equipped with everything you should need. Equipped as well with a coffee machine, sandwich maker, raclette and fondue.
Downstairs, you will find the superb sauna and jacuzzi centre together with plunge pool, shower room and WC. There are also loungers to relax in. There is even a ski room and ample space to store all the outdoor kit you would probably prefer not to bring into the apartment. The underground garage for your car is fully secure. There is also outdoor private parking.
Free wireless internet access throughout the apartment, ethernet connection also available!
So much to do!
Klosters itself is spoilt for the range of activities it can offer, but when you combine it with its neighbour Davos, just a few minutes up the valley, the scope for things to do becomes almost endless. For a start there are two golf courses, 54 ski lifts, 300km of ski pistes, 3 giant sledge runs, 100km of winter walking trails (and many more summer ones), ice hockey, ice skating, curling, horse-drawn sleighs, horse riding, tennis, 9 hole golf course (Klosters), 18 hole golf course (Davos), mini-golf, mountain biking, downhill cycling, horse riding, fishing, water sports, indoor/outdoor tennis, summer tobogganing at Schatzalp, rollerblading, clay pigeon shooting, mountain railways.
Tip! Get a guest card and receive a discount on many activities, entrance fees, green fees and free public transport (local trains and buses). Also there is half price admission to the tennis courts and outdoor swimming pools. In the summer, a guest card gives you access to all the mountain cable cars and railways completely free of charge!

We had a great week at " Chalet Arve". We had such a warm welcome from the owners. They are doing everything to make things easier before and the day of your arrival. The flat is quiet, well furnished,has a nice view on the mountains and has a sauna and jacuzzi in the building. You have everything you need from the coffee machine to the raclette and fondue set. You can walk to the village or the ski lift ( 10-15mn) We liked it so much we have already rented for next year !

The apartment was excellant, nicely furnished, clean, modern, lovely views of Gotschna and a genuine 5 minute walk to the cable car, rail/bus station and the main street in the village. As regular visitors to Klosters, we had high expectations and we were not disappointed. Will definately visit again.

Spacious, well equipped (a.o. great coffee maker!) and ideally situated apartment. Really wonderful sauna, located on separate floor with cold water tub, whirlpool and relax chairs. Wifi connection, satellite tv and dvd player with large collection of movies and tv series. Can strongly recommend

Beautiful spacious apartment ideally located for Klosters train station and main Gotschna lift and just across the road from the Heidlift where children's skischool meets. Just 5mns walk to main Co-op supermarket. Fabulous mountain views from the living room, and wide balcony where you can lounge in the sun (even in February!) and make the most of the views. Very cosy kitchen/ living room area with satellite TV and a collection of DVDs - ideal for keeping kids occupied after a hard day's skiing while mum rustles up some dinner. Alternatively restaurant in Hotel Steinbock, immediately next door to apartment, highly recommended. This was our second visit to Haus Arve and it is the probably the nicest self-catering apartment we have ever stayed in. English owners charming and extremely helpful. We would love to try it in the summer and one day we will!

Chalet Arve is an excellent appartment,centrally located in Klosters, well furnished, very well equipped kitchen with plenty of cutlery and dishes. We were 5 tall adults. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms clean and pretty, and the balcony on the southside had plenty of space. Very handy is the skistorage in the basement with garage attached. The sauna plus whirlpool was a delight after a freezing cold, tiring day on the ski piste! The appartment definitely met our expectations and the description was accurate. We were very well looked after with the personal touch of extra linen, extra towels, flowers, drinks and bowl of Suisse chocs! The owners picked us up from the station and helped us with transporting our 5 big suitcases to the appartment on arrival. All in all I can highly recommend this appartment to any family and would love to go there again!

An extremely comfortable apartment in a great location! Haus Arve doesnt feel like a holiday let it is a family home, equipped with every convenience, and is the perfect accommodation for anyone looking for more space, freedom, comfort and easy living than a hotel would offer.

Review submitted by Irene from Scotland 22 February 2010"We had an excellent week in Klosters and this was greatly due to the super accommodation at Haus Arve. We found it lovely and clean, veryrelaxing and with everything to hand we required. The location was great and we took full advantage of being so close to the train too."
Stephen from England 22 February 2009"We had a wonderful week in Klosters. The good snow conditions helped, but your delightful apartment was, perhaps, the single most contributing factor many thanks."
The property comes equipped with a superb sauna and jacuzzi centre together with plunge pool and shower/WC facilities - all at your free disposal.
The very large balcony has a south and west facing perspective panning round to magnificent views to the south west.
Despite its fairly central location the property is remarkably tranquil.
From the balcony, there are lovely views of the surrounding mountains.
