Villa Vals - Genius Underground House In SwitzerlandVilla Vals  

The ultimate hidden villa is tucked away under the snow-capped mountains in the green meadows of the Swiss village of Vals.

This house is 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 of 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 (22 meters) underground tunnel lit by skylights.

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.
