Make a holiday rental, home or villa in Switzerland your home away from home

Choose Switzerland for your Ski Holidays

Landlocked between France, Italy, Germany, Austria and Liechtenstein, Switzerland offers a huge amount of activities and natural beauty. Switzerland is an Alpine country, and therefore offers exceptional skiing in winter, hiking in summer and Swiss Alpine chalets for rent. The capital of Switzerland, Bern, is a melting pot of German, French and Italian cultures, fused with the tidy, prompt and well ordered Swiss mentality.

Places to holiday in Switzerland

Bernese Oberland is a major skiing destination, with 9 world-class destinations high in the Alps. It is spectacularly beautiful, and the walking in the summer is un-rivalled, with clear air, snow capped mountains lush hills and jagged rocks.

Valais, one of the 26 cantons of Switzerland is a fascinating land of mountains; ripe for skiing, climbing and downhill biking, as well as fabulous golf, white water rafting, paragliding and bungee jumping in the summer. There is plenty to entertain a family staying in Valais rental accommodation.

Lake Geneva is considered to be a showcase for all things Swiss. Snowy mountains, vineyards, castles, cathedrals, the lake itself and bustling nightlife can all be enjoyed from a city break to Geneva.

There is fantastic skiing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, bobsleighing, snow shoe hikes through picturesque snow covered forests and lively après-ski in abundance.

We felt the ski journey to Verbier was worth while but we enjoyed getting back home in the evening and enjoyed the local ski area along with the local restaurants and bars. The property is well positioned, well equipped, immaculate and we would not hesitate in returning. We did have suitable vehicles but without them we would still manage. Ski in/out was not available but within a very short walk you can catch the local bus every 10 minutes. Don't hesitate in booking - company and chalet very professional.

Lautterbrunnen is a village blessed with natural beauty.It is picteresque in every angle with many waterfalls and overlooking the snowy mountains. The only disadvantage of the area that most shops including the one mini supermarket in the area close at 6:30 in the evening.Always best to do the late shopping at Interlaken which is only 20 mins away.
