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.

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!

The buses were available and train station only a 10 min walk through an easy track. Rooms very spacious lovely sunny outside deck. We would return again and recommend. Gorgeous mountain views from deck. Loved our stay and Lauterbrunnen Bruce & Pam Wanaka NZ
