Your hosts Joanna and Peter Burri – Weaver have many years of experience in the Hospitality industry and have recently managed Boutique Hotels in exotic places like the Seychelles and Zanzibar. As soon as you enter their house you will experience the unique Anglo – Swiss hospitality. You will also find many memorabilia from the very interesting past of the Weaver family. The grand-parents were stationed in Sikkim before WWI and the grand-mother was one of the first European women to walk into Tibet having to cross the many mountains and Glaciers. Her son Peter Weaver was a Major in the 1st SAS and a War hero in WW2. Joanna was the first British women representing Great Britain in the Luge event at the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid. Both Joanna and Peter love Nature and, if time permitting, will gladly show you around or accompany you on one of the many beautiful walks.
