Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in Neuchatel Canton, Switzerland your home away from home

Sitting amid a host of mouth-watering sights, this tourist hotspot goes to show that there is more to Switzerland than cheese and watch making. Having said that, the timeless art of watch making is well rooted in the Neuchatel region. But what visitors come to this canton in the French-speaking section of Switzerland to see are the breathtaking views on the shores of Lake Neuchatel and other such attractions. The magnificent cool climate of the region also makes a host of activities possible. Villas with private pools and spectacular views are what most visitors to Neuchatel opt to spend their nights in.

Things to do on holiday to Neuchatel Canton, Switzerland

With the wealth of museums available in Neuchatel, visitors have no excuse for not leaving knowledgeable on Swiss history. The Musee d?Art et d?Histoire is of particular interest due to the works on display there. Among them are three mechanical figurines called Automates Jaquet-Droz which were crafted in the 18th century and are still in perfect working order today. They were made by a watchmaker, confirming the finesse of the Swiss at their craft. Apart from this museum visitors can also head to the MEN ethnography museum or Latenium, an archaeology museum. But the evidence of past civilizations is not confined to the museums, Neuchatel City is dotted with buildings showcasing the marvels of ancient architecture. Among them are the Maison des Halles which dates back to the 16th century and the Collegiale church which was constructed in 1185 and put into use almost a century later. The early gothic facade of the latter is truly something to behold. From the Prison Tower, visitors will be treated to splendid views over the town. A stroll down to the Old Town gives an even closer look at medieval architecture with over 140 centuries-old fountains.

To top up on the cultural experience, visitors should plan to attend the Fete des Vendages which is held every year as autumn begins. It commemorates the wine harvest. And while still on gastronomic matters, mention must be given to the excellent eateries in this part of the world. Unsurprisingly one of their most famous delicacies, the Fondue Meuchateloise, is heavily dependent on cheese. There are also a number of bars where excellent wine can be sampled.

                                        Modern property in a quiet residential location

                                        5 of 5
                                        My wife and I spent hours looking for a property for a month’s holiday from the UK in August. We wanted somewhere reasonably near Bern, self-contained and preferably detached, just for the two of us. Most detached properties in Switzerland are, it seems, chalets big enough for large families. In terms of its suitability for us as a couple this was a gem and almost unique! The listed description of this property is accurate. The house is of a modern timber framed structure, sympathetically furnished. It was certainly clean and everything that we needed worked. Anne and Brecht met us upon our arrival and explained everything. As a couple we found them personable and enthusiastic and, importantly, from this first meeting, we had the security of believing that if anything went wrong, either personally or with the property they would be more than willing to help. It's on the edge of a cluster of delightful villages in the wine producing and agricultural area of Mont Vully. The neighbourhood is very quiet and Chemin de Cible is bordered on one side by open fields. There are several restaurants in the area though a car is still essential to reach them. We liked the Bel-Air (it's best to telephone for a reservation) which also has a delightful café with tables between flower beds and trees right on the edge of Lake Murten. If you drive a short distance along the Route du Lac towards the top of the lake you pass a small supermarket and a Boulangerie selling amazing bread. Most shops close on Sunday but the Boulangerie is open as is also a Spar food shop attached to the petrol station near the roundabout at Sugiez. There's a large Migros supermarket on the approach to Murten. We had purchased a Swiss Rail Pass and Anne advised that Ins mainline station would be preferably to Murten station. She was quite right; Ins is about 15 minutes away with easy parking. Certainly rail is the way to explore Switzerland but local trips by car well worth doing would include Murten (plenty of restaurants), Biel (Saturday's are a good choice for the market). Friboug is steep for walking but has lots of history including the only waste water funicular in the world. It also has a great Starbucks coffee house if you are into UK style coffee culture! Neuchatel is very French and well worth a visit as is the watch museum at La Chaux de Fonds. As an alternative to the train there's a paddle steamer that cruises the three lakes (Murten, Neuchatel and Biel) through their interconnecting

                                        Comfortable chalet in a beautiful Swiss valley.

                                        5 of 5
                                        We were warmly welcomed by the owners - who spoke excellent English. The accommodation was set up thoughtfully to cater for our group (2 families plus other relatives, 9 people in total). Everything was clean and well-maintained. The region is beautiful and various sights were in easy reach by car: Lake Neuchatel and its surroundings, La Neueville, Berne - with its bears, (we took the train here), mountains etc. The sound of cowbells is sometimes the only thing to disturb the peace! Our hosts were helpful and even gave members of our group without transport a lift to catch their bus into town. We would recommend this chalet to anyone wishing to discover this tranquil area of Switzerland. Many thanks to the Chollet family.
