“An Authentic Swiss experience in the most beautiful mountain village in the Alp”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Fanas is a sweet small Swiss village in the Alps- away from mostly tourist route but a well known get away spot for Swiss locals-people come here for hiking , for skiing etc. The village only less than 2 hours from Zurich, looks like what you found in Jams Bonds movie- breakthtakingly view of alps and nature .

And Hitsch-Huus is a delightful B & B- with only 6 or 7 rooms yet world standard service. The owner which is well traveled couple who loves people, truly take care of their guests with a delightful care and smile, and they cook delicious organic food if you choose to take the half board option which is well worth the money. The rooms are altra -clean . spacious and amongst the mountain swiss air you will sleep very well at this hide away swiss mountain loge .


We went there twice and each time we were completely satisfied and compared to this to any five star world class resort we have been .

Fanas is the off beaten road small gem most tourist do not know about Switzerland unless you know someone or lives here- but definitely worth the trip.

This is a belated review but better late than never. My wife and I have stayed several times in Hitsch-Huus, which is in a small yet very pretty Swiss village. What makes this place special is the owners who have general compassion for their guests. They make excellent healthy food and provide comfortable clean rooms. They have also traveled the world and have many interesting stories. If you are looking for some quiet time to relax in the mountains, this is it.

Our family visited for a few days following a skiing holiday in Austria in January and had a fantastic time at Hitsch Huus, A real gem of a place to stay, near to skiing and close to the route if travelling between Austria, Switzerland, Italy. We loved the village atmosphere, the cable car trip, sledging lunch at a mountain hut nearby. The food was great and we felt at home straight away :) Tony and family

Spent two nights at the Hitsch-Huus which is located in a small Swiss Village in Fanas. This is a very comfortable and cozy B&B located above the valley with magnificent views. Very peaceful and tranquil and the owner Christine, makes delicious meals. The rooms are beautiful and our bed was very comfortable. If you are in the area and do not want to stay in the big cities, this is the place to stay. Day trips to the cities are easy. We are already looking forward to a return visit. Thank you Christine! Rick & Teri

We stayed at Hitsch-Huus for a 5 days in June. This cozy house is situated in a small village Fanas in the Swiss Alps. It is easy to reach and it is close to the Chur and only 1h 30' to Zurich. So you can plan your daily trips where ever you want. There are also hiking trails and cable car.
Great views! Nice atmosphere, very quiet and calm; local food, pure nature. You feel like you came to see relatives, not to stay in a hotel. It is a perfect place to hide and relax. Be sure to see a fantastic night sky!
The house itself is very nice; we stayed in the best room "Ecuador". It is spacious with nice details and attractive view. There is no TV in the room but believe me, you won't need it.
The breakfast was delicious! Once we had a dinner and it was also good. And it was all local food!
I would like to thank Christine Bläuer, she really made our stay pleasant. She was very helpful and kind!
Our first time in Switzerland at Hitsch-Huus was wonderful!

Fanas is a small traditional village 115km from Zurich and 20minutes from Chur. It is the perfect location for someone who doesn't like crowded vacation.No tourists,very friendly locals and perfect Swiss scenery with simillar traditional houses and beautiful mountain views.The place we stayed was Hitch-Huus, a comfortable,clean and cosy place with big rooms which are named after countries (we stayed in Laos).The owners were very friendly and helpful to our quiding questions.They are also very good cooks!!! Almost everything we had for breakfast and dinner was home made and from local production!!! Unforgetable!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We stayed at Hitsch Huus for an overnight break in Fanas in April. Spring had just arrived and the local area is beautiful.
We stayed in the lovely Africa room which has access to the balcony, a double bed and nice bath/shower room. The room facilities were simple but practical and the room was very clean. No TV or tea and coffee making facilities in the room, but there is a self-service area where you can get hot and cold drinks and pay at check-out.
The owners were very friendly and helpful and recommended a suitable afternoon walk for us. We ate in the B&B in the evening and enjoyed a wonderful meal worthy of a very good restaurant - both the meat and veggie options were delicious. There's a lounge/library room with a TV and shelves of books. There are also loads of guide books and maps of the local area that you can borrow.
This place definitely achieves a home-away-from-home feel. It's not luxurious, but has tonnes of character and provides a peaceful retreat from the cities.
