Find all this and more at Ferienhaus Montanara!
- One or more weeks of complete relaxation in the Swiss Alps.
Quiet motor vehicle-free rustic village with unique access by Riederalp aerial tram
or by car to the edge of the village.
Stunning view of the major scenic wonders that define Switzerland.
Physical rejuvenation: walking, hiking, climbing, skiing, golfing, swimming, etc.
A home base for sight seeing in Switzerland and central Europe.
Haus Montanara is located in the southern Swiss Alps, in the canton of Wallis/Valais,
on a sunny south-facing hillside above the Rhone River, at the mid-station of the cable
car route from Mörel to the Riederalp/Bettmeralp resort. Continue to the top, and a
short walk will take you to the Aletsch Glacier, the largest in the Alps at 15 mi/24 km
long! The house was built in the traditional chalet style of the region, with totally modern
amenities. Our comfortable 1-bedroom/1-bathroom vacation apartment offers a kitchenette
and beds for up to 4 guests. Step onto the private balcony for spectacular mountain and
valley views. Great hiking, climbing, and skiing—in a pastoral alpine
setting—are just outside the door. Please browse this website for pictures of the
Aletsch Glacier region, the village of Greich, and of course, our accommodations.
Many of the structures in the tiny village of Greich date to
the 1600's. Haus Montanara was built in 1987 by a local man who appreciated the charm
of the centuries-old buildings in this village and was careful to make his new home
blend in seamlessly. After he died, Haus Montanara was bought by 4 families in the
United States, 2 of which have Swiss citizenship. The main floor is used by the
owners as a personal vacation house. The lower level apartment is rented permanently.
The vacation rental is on the top floor.
