The house with the most stars from Bergell and Engadin

lies on the border between the upper Engadin and the Bergell in one of the most beautiful scenery in the world. One can also find the famous five-star hotels in St. Moritz or Pontresina.
What Salecina differs from these luxury holiday homes, is not only the number of stars - in the clear, spared from light pollution sink of Salecina one sees just more of it.
Salecina also has its own understanding of luxury. Built over 300 years ago House is a self-managed holiday and course center in which alone determine the guests, how much and what kind of luxury they want - from the service and dining to entertainment.
The house for Travel and training Hungry for Moving, for young and for old, for individuals, families or groups is a unique place to meet and talk.

Registration of daily tasks such as cooking and cleaning, and the organization by the guest is special and integral aspect Salecinas. Each guest takes a small service per day for the community. For the founder pair Amalie and Theo Pinkus it was simply not conceivable that staff is hired to serve the people present in the house. There are many alternative holiday centers, but no other is based on the idea of ​​self-government guests.

Salecina is open to everyone, young and old, big and small, individual travelers, families and groups. Most feel those at home, which is a key objective Salecinas is also important, which is to be a meeting place for politically interested people from the left movement in Europe.
In the house German and Italian is spoken. All team members are bilingual and the information documents are also. Guests will always find a way to make themselves mutually intelligible, even if they are not one or the other language. This says a lot about from the open and airy atmosphere in Salecina from.

The "suites" and rooms in Salecina have a private luxury - the limitation to the necessary and reasonable. Only then is it possible to make the price of the room for a social model: Each guest pays for his sleeping place so much as it corresponds to its own financial possibilities: from 44.- to 66.- Swiss francs per night (breakfast and dinner included). Cost recovery for Salecina is 55.- CHF. Children: 2-5 years CHF 22.-; CHF 33.- 6-11Jahre; 12-17 years CHF 40.-.

Thanks to this solidarity model people meet in Salecina from different social backgrounds - something that in the Engadine hardly takes place otherwise.
