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!

Switzerland's ski resorts open in mid-November and remain open until April.

Great Apartment in a Fantastic Location!

5 of 5
We were so very happy with our three-week stay in this apartment and with its amazing location! We have three older children and they all loved Bellevue and so did my husband and I. The apartment is so spacious with a lovely dining room area, well-outfitted kitchen, comfortable beds and bedrooms and cozy and relaxing common areas. I loved having our own washing machine! We enjoy cooking so having Migros and Coop just minutes away with fresh bread and groceries was great! The apartment is in a fantastic location, barely five minutes from both the train and the Conegrat station. It is also located just about thirty meters from the main street that runs through Zermatt and is located on a very nice stretch of that street. We thoroughly enjoyed the cafes, restaurants, and shops and although they are close to the apartment it is still very quiet! My husband is very sensitive to noise and was never bothered - very quiet! Also - the fact that there is a view of the Matterhorn from the long apartment balcony meant the world to us since we were in Zermatt to climb it. Adrian is the most incredible host - so helpful and so very responsive! We had really such a great time in Zermatt and much of it was because we came so prepared after Adrian provided us prior to our arrival with so much information in regards to trains, lifts, trails, restaurants and much more. This information ensured that we bought the Swiss Transfer Ticket to and from Zurich and also the Swiss Half Fare Card at the train station in Zermatt which allowed us to pay only half price for all our lift and gondola tickets up the mountain! We are planning to return to Zermatt in the near future and will definitely stay in this apartment again!!! Thank you so much Adrian for making our visit and stay so very special!!!

The best view in Lauterbrunnen!

5 of 5
This apartment is just wonderful. The rooms are all spacious. Kitchen is very well appointed. Lots of nice additions, such as a wonderful book collection, dvd's etc. And the views - simply the best view in all of Lauterbrunnen. There are numerous other apartments in chalets in this community, but none have the front row seat of the alps, that this apartment has! The view is simply stunning. The apartment is within walking distance of the town of Lauterbrunnen, which is great, so you don't have to drive and fuss with parking. Such a great base to see the whole region. Most importantly, Diane Black is a wonderful host who took such great care of us. Highly recommend this apartment for anyone considering staying in the area.
