Experience alpine freshness and heartfelt warmth. Draw vitality from nature and the landscape, invigorate your spirit. Let the colors and scents enchant you. Allow beauty and serenity to awaken a feeling of bliss. Welcome to the Engadine, an alpine valley full of life’s little pleasures. Welcome to the Privata, a place to find contentment.


Attention to detail. A sheltering warmth. The smell of pine wood. And sun-kissed bed linens. Stretch out luxuriously.


Combining the best of Italy and the best of the Engadine is the challenge and the goal of Flavio Gadola and his team.


Take a deep breath and feel the power of nature. All your senses awaken. The pungent smell of alpine herbs tickles your nose, a smile of satisfaction crosses your face.

I’ve seen many landscapes and liked virtually all of them. Yet only few appeared to be destined for me, to deeply and lastingly speak to me, to gradually blossom into small homes and the most beautiful landscape that impacted me the most is the Upper Engadin.

Hermann Hesse

Our philosophy

The Privata is more than a hotel, it is a well-being experience for the senses!

We do everything we can to pamper our guests. Even our logo with the rosette radiates perfection and spreading love. The management couple Franco and Claudia Gilly and the whole team put their hearts into their work, fulfill wishes and ensure an unforgettable stay.

Corina Giovanoli has always been bubbling over with energy, creativity and hospitality. Her goal has always been to create a gem in the middle of the unique Engadine lake landscape. In addition to the hotel, the Winebar Vis-à-vis was added in 2019 and the Boutique Viver in December 2023.
