Charming and stylish imperfection.
4 double rooms. Each with its own personality. Each of our four double rooms has it's own special atmosphere, but they all express a dedication to luxury and good design which gives you a pleasant comfortable feeling .
Brücke 49 is curated by Ruth and Thomas as a mix of “a good eye” for interior design and a life long passion for the "good things" which are well-made, combined with many years experiences of travelling the World for both business and pleasure. From that you learn the hard way what works and what doesn’t in terms of service, quality, convenience, design, materials and commitment to give every guest a happy memory.
Each room is meant to be your personal retreat. Stylish as well as practical and cosy. At the entrance of the house each room has a big cupboard for hiking boots and ski-equipment.
There is no bathroom or toilet in the rooms.
We think it is nicer that this is seperate from where you sleep. On each floor you have a spacious bathroom of the best materials. Squicky white and clean for your comfort and wellness.
Brücke 49 represents a new concept for luxurious high-mountain short stays. It is a re-invention and re-vitalization of the traditional bed & breakfast combined with the best in high quality design, modern travel culture and the originality of the small mountain village of Vals.
We do not have guests. We have “friends” who stop by for a long weekend, a ski-week or to recharge the mental batteries either that comes from going to Therme Vals, trekking the surrounding mountains or just relaxing in the comfort of the house.
You do not “check-in” or need to be “waiter'ed” on. We will make you a tea or coffee when you arrive and talk about this-and-that. Show how everything works and take an interest in who you are and what you expect from your stay with us.
Brücke 49 is a place of freedom to do what you do at home. Cook in a wonderful kitchen with the best ingredients the local farmers can offer. Read books or new international magazines. Sip a beer in the elevated garden while enjoying the sunshine in your face and the view over the village. Make a BBQ.
Mingle with the 5 or 6 other “friends” in the house. Or just take an extra nap on the nicely made beds.
Brücke 49 is a big house with only 4 rooms for maximum 10 people. Each room has it own history and personality which is made out of presents a eclectic mix of what the old house was like when it was build in 1902 combined with a few suitable handmade design items or pieces of artwork. It is not fancy just very personal and with a lot of thought going into what we think will give you a nice cosy feeling.
The result is that you feel “home-away-from-home” with us.
Brücke 49 is developed and owned by Ruth Kramer and Thomas Schacht. A Swiss-Danish couple that decided to give up their solid jobs as designer and business developer in Denmark and after more than 25 years in that line of business start the “2nd half” of their lifetime in Alps of Vals. Both having travelled the World for many years professionally advising companies of how to design products and build brands Ruth and Thomas used their skills to make Brücke 49 something extraordinary for the modern traveller.
