Our house was given this name in memory of the Walser people, who, in the Middle Ages, emigrated from Valais in Switzerland to northern Italy, the Große and kleine Walsertal (Great and little Walser valley) and, of course, here in the Tannberg region.
They made the land here arable and had a try at mining. What has certainly been the best for the Walser people, though, is tourism. Our guests, however, didn’t originally come here for the friendliness or luxury. No. The Walser people were a tough, hard-working and poor folk with a very dry sense of humour.
The skiers who came here were enthralled by the beautiful landscape and the sturdy locals, who they could rely on in any weather.
In the past three generations we have been able to leave behind many of the fears, hardships and worries that our ancestors endured and have adapted to the holiday wishes of today’s tourists.
