Sur En near Ardez is characterised by its typical Engadine houses with sgraffito and was the location of the Schellen-Ursli film. 
Schellen-Ursli filming location: Schellen-Ursli home village

All the scenes from the home village of Uorsin, his family and friends were filmed here. Sur En d'Ardez is situated on a terrace, high above the Inn River, on the right side of the valley directly opposite Ardez and Guarda. The small hamlet is almost deserted in winter and wants to be discovered on foot in a quiet atmosphere. Entire house facades and buildings were rebuilt for the filming. As you walk through, however, you discover some familiar alleys here and there or the fountain around which the children run at Chalandamarz.

According to the story by Selina Chönz and Alois Carigiet, the Schellen-Ursli story is set exclusively in Guarda, which, however, was out of the question as a filming location due to the busy traffic.

You can find all the filming locations of the Schellen-Ursli film here.
