We visited a selection of scenic and interesting places - Gruyere, Thun, Lake Geneva and Chateau de Chillon, Bern, Gstaad and Les Diablerets, Our entire trip was enhanced by glorious weather and meals both at the apartment and on our visits were eaten outside. The enormous terrace was a great bonus. A dip in the pool during such hot weather was very therapeutic. The tranquil surroundings did not put us in an isolated position as food supplies and fuel for the car were within easy reach.
