Scuol, Switzerland Private Retreat Counseling with Matina Famos

The land on which Scuol was built has marvelous healing powers. Since 1864, the town has been hosting guests who come to be cured by drinking from the twenty natural carbonated mineral water. Some healing springs contain calcium and iron, while others have high quantities of sulfate, sodium, chloride, or magnesium. Several different types of mineral water with wonderful names, such as Lischana, Sotsass, or Chalzina, bubble from village fountains. The houses are built with the front to the wells because the souls of the deceased leave with the water flow.

The people speak Romansh, the fourth national language of Switzerland. Through their cultural values, village characteristics, and history, they present a very different Switzerland.
The largest town of the Lower Engadine is Scuol. Tarasp, with the famous castle, and Sent are the towns nearby, all located at the foot of the Swiss National Park.
Being too far for day-tripping tourism and the lack of interest from the locals in offering surplus tourist attractions has helped preserve nature.

In paradox to the water miracles, the Lower Enagine is an arid area spoiled with mostly sunny days and a perfect place for my walk and talk counseling in pristine nature.

The Scuol region has visitor packages to encourage visitors to come by train. Please find more information on the links below.
