The cosy and gourmet hotel in Vals

There is a very special place in the small mountain village of Surcasti just before Vals that fascinates and enchants its visitors again and again with its flair and history. The Usteria Casa da Luzi is a 400-year-old Walserhaus (Swiss log cabin) with an ancient, converted stable. A place that you absolutely have to see!

The tables are set with love, the candles flicker romantically, the big stove radiates a cosy warmth, and a hearty aroma comes from the wood stove in the kitchen.

There are only a few tables in this rustic cabin. The kitchen is open to view. The hosts are looking forward to spoil you. The chef will explain directly at the table what he has prepared for the evening. It should be healthy and regional, prepared with sophistication and passion. 
A place where you feel comfortable from the first moment. We are looking forward to our guests.

The dreamy mountain village

Surcasti – a place of power

The German name is Obercastels and refers to the nearby castle. The village has been a place of power for centuries, around which many stories are entwined.

A mythological hiking trail leads straight through the village. Surrounded by places of culture, legends and healing, behind the village lies the central stone of a large stone circle (Panoramamenhir).

Rustic comfort has a name

Our restaurant

The pleasant restaurant with 25 seats and authentic furnishings takes every guest back to the life of yesteryear. 

We love using local products and purchase as much as possible from producers and suppliers in the region. Our meat comes from the farmers in the valley. 

Looking over the chef’s shoulder

Our kitchens at high altitude

Have you ever looked the chef over the shoulder while cooking? The kitchen is integrated at our restaurant and gives the inside view.

Our wine cellar

Come and get your favourite wine yourself from our rustic stone cellar! A selection of exquisite wines are stored on the shelves. You can even taste it right here! The spring water from the well is included.
