"Down, down, curve the bus, giving its horn a warning blast to each of the serpentine cascade. The view was spectacular. We were green to the gills. Veils of mist shifted into the twilight from the pass of Maloja. Our quest was a Shangri-la of palazzos, gardens and... chestnuts. Until the 1940s chestnuts were the economic mainstay of this secluded high valley, and still feature local delicacies." Author Claire Bonney
