Tucked away under the snow-capped mountains in the green meadows of the Swiss village of Vals lies the ultimate hidden villa. This house is literally carved into the mountainside in a flawless design to leave the natural surroundings unharmed. Villa Vals can accommodate up to ten people and is set within walking distance to the famous thermal springs of Therme Vals, a hotel/spa complex built directly over the natural springs.
A hidden gem, the viewing angle from Villa Vals is slightly inclined due to the structure, giving travelers a dramatic view of the mountains opposite the narrow valley. Nearly everything here is nestled underground, including the front door. Guests will find the only access point in a nearby barn, which leads to a 72-foot-long underground tunnel lit by skylights. This modern bunker has six rooms with wood paneling, giving it a warm feel even in the deep of winter.
Each bedroom offers a king-size bed and a private bathroom. The ground floor features a living room, a fully equipped kitchen, and a library overlooking the terrace to bring in natural light. The entrance room even has heated ski boot holders for convenient drying and storage.
During ski season, there is a free shuttle that makes a stop at a lower road nearby. It takes guests to a ski area where it's rare to be met with long waits for the lifts and slopes because of the remote location. The snow is also great for snowboarding, sleighs, and long snowy hikes.
