Soglio sounds like it's exactly what you're looking for. It is beautiful beyond words and very quiet. Lots and lots of hiking from there up and down the Bregaglia Valley. Those who go elsewhere often do because it's too small a village with too few dining options. The post bus can get you to larger towns. Even Lake Como is easily accessible by a post bus train combination.

see www.bregaglia.ch/ and www.stua-granda.ch/ for a terrific photo.

Hi xyz99
If you wish to go to the base of the Landwasser viaduct just follow the signs from Filisur train station and walk downhill. Be sure to check the time of the next few trains so you can make sure you are in position with your camera poised! You will feel like a tiny ant when you look back up.

Another walk we did was from Preda station to Bergun, about 2 1/2 hours including time to sit and talk to the cows. It follows the train line and is an historic train walk.

You will love the walk from Guarda to Ardez or Ftan - we only saw one other person the whole time - that was in June though.

Best wishes for a great holiday in a truly stunning part of Switzerland.

Thanks a lot. Yes, the Landwasser viaduct is definitely a picture I would love to take. Any idea how long that walk/hike is?
I dont think well have time to go all the the way to Ftan, but a least, well try Guarda to Ardez.
Thanks for the good wishes, Ill post a trip report (and the pictures) when I get back this forum is fantastic.

Hi, sorry to take so long to get back.
The walk down was around 30 mins and a bit longer (of course) on the way up. I think the sign said about 45 mins though. The walking trails are amazing in Switzerland, just keep following those yellow signs.
