In search of a place to spend the second lock down in 2021, we discovered the village of Bivio, a tiny, but very special spot in the Swiss Alps. Feeling the energy that such a place can fuel us with, made us reevaluate the idea of settling in one locality. Bivio triggered our most creative thinking and boosted our productivity.

We loved it so much that the idea of the ‘Peppermint Getaway’ was born; the idea of providing Pepperminters the opportunity of living and working from different locations while experiencing the space where Peppermint products were born and live.

You can ski, hike, mountain bike, cross-country ski, ice-skate, swim, sauna, sledge, walk, bowl, taste local food and go to the cinema. Skiing: The Ski-resort is accessible on foot (3min walk) and has 3 T-Bar lifts, do not mock these - they are slower than a chairlift, but this also means that they can transport much fewer people, making the skiing experience in Bivio almost seem private. This familiarity also makes it great for kids. Speaking of kids, Bivio also has a beginners slope and lift which is free of charge. If you live in Bivio 41, you also have free access to the ski-room under the ground floor, so you can leave your skies and boots to dry without having to lug them into the apartment. Swimming: The Studio is part of a complex which has a swimming pool with a view of Bivio. At an extra fee on location you can use the pool and sauna - which is just an incredible feeling after a day on the slopes.
