The scenery was just stunning and I would highly recommend a Gstaad card to everyone. We spent several days going up the mountains and walking. Then to have the added luxury of going back to our apartment and using the pool and spa followed by a game of pool was such a treat. I managed to keep my 13 and 16 year old boys happy which is never easy!

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.
