Take me away to a land of snow, a land of steep mountains and tumbling valleys. I want to hide away from the world in a wooden house clinging to the slopes in an age-old hamlet. Annalisa and Peter Zumthor’s timber houses perch above their age blackened neighbours in Leis in Val, Switzerland (population 20). Once inside the houses wrap you in their close embrace, while classic midcentury and modern furniture plays against the soft golden gleam of the wooden walls. But turn outwards, look through those windows and a wonderland awaits, winter or summer. Zumthor Ferienhäuser – holiday homes to rent.
Breath taking view!
What a fantastic place to spend time on winter! Beautiful!
Man oh man, I"m all about cozy cabins tucked away in the snow and mountains
Makes me achingly homesick (we've just returned after almost 5 years in Switzerland).
Love this home, this village.
Also, the soapstone stove is gorgeous; wish there were a source.
Zumthor amazes me. He was given the most prestigious awards in architecture but he remains true to his values and origins. He could have done many prestigious projects like museums and more but he prefers to create awe inspiring homes. Perfect example here.
this is just insane! i mean this is my dream…
Your pictures bring back very good memories when I visited Switzerland many years ago and cross country skied on the trails beside our hotel
Thank you for bringing back those memories
does someone know maker of this simply beautiful wood (im guessing here) burning stove? it could be custom made;knowing HIS approach !
From the name and the first photo, I thought this was something from The Hobbit at first! When can I move in?

I have to agree with Gerard – it is stunning. I love the view from the balcony. I can imagine enjoying a Glühwein or two there.
