Casaccia and Bregaglia

B&B Cad’Stampa lies in the picturesque village of Casaccia (1458 m) at the foot of Maloja Pass, a main gateway to St. Moritz and the Engadine Valley. There is a public bus stop outside the B&B. The bus passes every hour in both directions providing a connection to neighbouring villages and the train stations in Chiavenna (Italy) and St. Moritz. Casaccia is 2.53 hours drive from Zurich, Milan and Bergamo airports.

About 20 km west of Casaccia is the Italian border and the charming town of Chiavenna, which has supermarkets, shops, bars and restaurants. East of Casaccia is the famous Engadine Valley and the resort town of St. Moritz, with its well-developed tourist infrastructure and world-renowned summer and winter recreational opportunities. 

If your plan is to hike, trail run, ski, bike or climb, you can start your adventures at elevations between 400 m (Chiavenna) and 2400 m (Julier Pass) within only a few kilometres of Casaccia. This provides all-weather and all-season opportunities, ranging from beautiful lakeside and forest tracks through to high alpine mountaineering and climbing. Casaccia is a hub for numerous well-known hiking and biking trails that weave through the surrounding valleys and forests. In winter, the trails can be explored on foot, using snow shoes, or on skis. Casaccia has its own small ski-lift which is open when conditions permit and is ideal for children or learners. Just to the east of Casaccia, the Engadine Valley has several world-class ski resorts and frequently hosts top-level summer and winter sporting events.
