The Engadine -
the neighborhood of Villa Flor

Nature, culture & sports during all seasons

The Villa Flor is located in the small Engadine village of S-chanf. The proximity of the village to the National Park as well as to the chic St. Moritz make the hotel the ideal starting point for activities in winter and summer.

Art mecca Engadine

From Nietzsche to Segantini

Arts and culture are nowhere as present as in the Engadine. Here, unique architecture fascinates as much as excellent museums and galleries of world renown. Artists, poets and thinkers such as Giovanni Segantini, Friedrich Nietzsche or Alberto Giacometti have always chosen the Engadine as a place of inspiration.


Swiss National Park

Where Nature still has that say

The Swiss National Park is the largest wilderness area in Switzerland and the oldest national park in the Alps and Central Europe. It is known for its richness of alpine animals and plants in a hardly touched landscape. Nature is left to its own devices in the 170 km2 area, with man only playing a secondary role. And the best thing: in S-chanf you are almost in the middle of it all, so you can start walking directly from Villa Flor. A must do: a hike into the Val Trupchun in the golden autumn – stunningly beautiful!



350 km of ski runs

For carvers, freestylers and freeriders

The Engadine is the Eldorado for skiers and snowboarders! 350 kilometres of slopes spread over a total of 9 ski areas guarantee perfect winter sports days for all types of skiers. The three big skiing areas Corviglia, Corvatsch/Furtschellas and Diavolezza/Lagalb offer a lot of variety with pistes of different levels of difficulty. Beginners get their money's worth in the smaller ski areas. Especially for families Zuoz is the absolute non-plus-ultra.


The marathon track

For classic- and skating-style skiing

The Engadine is a paradise for cross-country skiers. The snow-assured high valley offers almost 230 kilometres of trails for every type of run and a wide variety of routes against a breathtaking mountain backdrop. Switzerland's most famous cross-country skiing kilometres are also very popular: the 42 km of the legendary Engadin Ski Marathon from Maloja to S-chanf. You can tackle them alone and in several stages. The finish in S-chanf is only a stone's throw away from Villa Flor.


Golf at 1,715 metres above sea level

The green of Switzerland’s oldest golf club

The Engadine Golf Club was founded in 1893 and is the oldest golf club in Switzerland. In addition to the course in Samedan, the club also has a course in Zuoz-Madulain, which is less than ten minutes from Villa Flor. Situated at an altitude of 1,715 metres above sea level, the 18-hole course offers everything that makes a golfer's heart beat faster: a challenging course, rapidly changing weather conditions and a breathtaking Alpine backdrop.


Mountain biking in the Engadine

Trails from comfortable to highly demanding

For mountain bikers in the Engadine, the question is not where to find the best trails, but rather what kind of trails they should be. For example, you can take the gondola up to the Piz Nair before dawn to experience the spectacular sunrise at 3,057 m above sea level and then tackle the single trails. Or you can choose the route via the Bernina Pass towards Italy and return by train. On a rented e-bike you can cycle leisurely along the lakes and magical forests.
