Re: Finances possible for relocation to Graubunden

We’re looking at following the best way to do it
We think after retirement
If you are British and only British, you only have until the end of the Brexit transition period to be able to do that under current (fairly easy) rules. After that, Brits are third-country nationals and even with a fair degree of goodwill certainly on the Swiss side, your trust fund will need to be pretty substantial to be able to retire here I would think.

In terms of your budget, it very much depends on where exactly you want to be. Ski resorts are going to be very expensive - £800k/ ca. CHF 1m won't get you a house but should get you a decent flat. Outside a ski resort, you could be looking at a decent 5-room chalet for that. But transport is then the question - you say close to a train station, but where are you aiming to get to from that train station? SBB (the national rail system) terminates at Chur and everywhere beyond that is on the Rhätische Bahn. And don't underestimate how remote the Engadine can be. But somewhere in the Surselva will be much more accessible (whilst still feeling remote)
