Hotel La Claustra - Former Army Fortress In The Swiss AlpsLa Claustra  

Forget about simply visiting the Swiss Alps; now, you can stay in a former army fortress nestled within the mountain's rocky face.

La Claustra in Switzerland is a treasure trove of discovery and uniqueness extended over an area of 43,056 square feet (4,000 square meters).

Here you will find an atmosphere like no other place. Be sure to split your time between soaks in a Jacuzzi bath, meals in a grand dining ambiance, and views of the pristine greenery and slate grays rock formations of the Swiss Alps. Of course, you can also enjoy the scenery of the seasonal pool.

If you are seeking a getaway to accommodations encompassing Europe's natural beauty and the extraordinary, then La Claustra is the ideal blend.

Great wine, delectable food, and a cozy environment await you - if you are not afraid to stay underground - all with the allure of being housed in a one-of-a-kind mountain resort!
