My family and I stayed at Chalet Runca in March while we went skiing. Three young couples, 2 4year old kids, 1 older guest. Helen and Michael run the chalet. They live in a cottage attached to the property and literally tend to all your needs. As vegetarians, they really went above and beyond. We generally find it hard to... More

Helen and Mike Onions are simply the best hosts. We had a wonderful holiday in the beautiful Chalet Runca. This was our second visit because our previous holiday had been such a success. We were so comfortable and well looked after. Arosa is fantastic for skiing and so picturesque all set around it's frozen lake. Really gorgeous, thank you again.

What a BRILLIANT place to stay. We were there for a week with our baby daughter, sister's family, including 3 kids, my parents and 3 friends too. Helen and Mike were welcoming, straightforward and provided us with a fantastic stay. The chalet is large, well-appointed and comfortable. Arosa is a great place for a ski holiday. We are all good...

Chalet Runca was recommended to us by friends, and we weren't disappointed. It really is a lovely chalet in a great location. There is a bus stop right outside giving easy access by bus to and from the slopes - no need to walk in those cumbersome ski boots! Mike and Helen were very accommodating hosts and happy to give...

Great property, kind and caring family. lovely atmosphere and plenty to do for the little ones in this charming kids friendly village which we enjoyed much more than the nearby St Moritz and Davos. Rooms are all good size and there was enough room for 5 adults and 6 children. Kids enjoyed the ski school very much

I couldn't have been happier with my visit to Chalet Runca. The Onions family are very welcoming and provided exquisite dinners and hearty breakfasts that really made this a ski trip to remember. The house is beautiful and tastefully furnished as well as being really convenient. I loved being able to ski home!

Chalet Runca is a little piece of luxury tucked away in a Swiss village that makes you forget whatever world you left behind. Helen and Mike's hospitality complements the experience, with great food and wine, not forgetting the cake and cuba libres (my contribution!) on the sun soaked balcony, after a day's skiing in the picturesque valley of Arosa. I... More

We have just returned from a week long catered stay at Chalet Runca in Arosa. It was a wonderful holiday with excellent snow, sunshine and grandparents, four siblings and their families, with six grandchildren, all under one roof for the first time! We all traveled distances to Arosa to be together, from California, Colorado and New York in the US,... More

We stayed at the Runca as part of a large family group in February 2013. The food, service, support and welcome from Helen and Mike are first class. We had to ski very hard to work off the meals! The spaciousness of the chalet, plus separate kids' tea and English satellite TV availability, make it an excellent place for young... More
