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.

Graubunden, is an almost entirely mountainous canton of Switzerland, and has much of the Swiss National Park and Ela Nature Park within its boundaries.

Things to do in Switzerland

A holiday to Switzerland can take many different forms. Switzerland's Alpine ski resorts and snow sports are legendary. There is fantastic skiing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, bobsleighing, snow shoe hikes through picturesque snow covered forests and lively après-ski in abundance. Skiing holidays to Switzerland are extremely popular due to not only the authenticity of the country and the lack of crowds, but also the quality of natural and man made resources.

During the summer, the spectacular mountain views and pure air make Switzerland a summer favourite for hiking, walking, climbing and mountain biking. If you discover a natural pool high in the mountains a refreshing dip in some of the most tranquil surroundings in Europe always helps to clear your mind and weary limbs!

The country is wonderfully authentic, and Alpine dairies, Swiss chocolate and clocks are still as prominent as they always have been. It is impossible to sum up all there is on offer in Switzerland in any article less than a full book, but there is undoubtedly something for everyone here, and the unbelievable beauty of much of the country is humbling!

Weather in Switzerland

Summer is warm, lasting from June to September, with average temperatures peaking at around 25°C in July, the busiest tourist period. Switzerland's ski resorts open in mid-November and remain open until April. Winter temperatures can dip as low as -3°C in the mountains during the winter, but average temperatures are around 2°C during the coldest months.

Travel to Switzerland

Switzerland has three main Airports, Zurich Airport (ZRH), Bern Belp Airport (BRN) and Geneva Cointrin International Airport (GVA), so there is plenty of access to which ever destination you decide to take a holiday rental in Switzerland.

Another lovely fortnight in this beautiful place

5 of 5
We have visited Chateau-d'Oex many times and this was our 3rd stay in this lovely apartment. Inside - it is well equipped, furnished and decorated to a high standard yet still very comfortable. Outside - the very large terrace is still a big attraction for us along with the breath-taking views that can be seen from it. It is lovely to have the use of the swimming pool, although we would suggest the hours between which it can be used are a little restrictive as they tend to be when we are out doing other things. It would therefore be nice to be able to have access both earlier in the morning and later in the evening. There is also a gym that appears well equipped but as we have only ever looked at it, never used it, we cannot say more. In the communal lounge area there are games, books and jigsaws for general use. We have added to the collection. Chateau-d'Oex itself remains as unspoilt now as it was all those years ago when I first started visiting, although it is sad that the de l'Ours Brasserie has now closed down. The Station buffet, however, seems to go from strength to strength and is still (in our opinion) one of the best eateries in town. Our thanks to the apartment owner, Kenneth Grant, for being so kind and accommodating and making the whole booking process very easy. Our thanks also to Joy de Dycker, the lettings manager, for her kindness and consideration during our stay. We will be back!

Dream-like mountain holiday - totally loved it.

5 of 5
Surely one of the best holidays we have had in a long time! For Londoners the road to get to Törbel might be a bit of a challenge to begin with, but once we arrived, everything was way better than ever imagined. Amazing house, unique views, the way everything worked, the equipment - blankets, kitchen stuff etc. - everything is just there and a total joy. Our dog loved it too. Great location for going hiking, we loved the Moosalp and its kitchen, and again - whatever you would need like walking maps or guides on restaurants or some background about the Vallais, it's all there. Incredible responsiveness from the owner of the house, who we met coincidentally at our early arrival - we felt totally looked after throughout our stay, very very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. We'll be back!
