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.

Great communication prior to our trip, easy to follow instructions regarding access and a truly breath-taking location. 360 degree mountain views and a lovely campsite with pool and bar area just in front of the property. The chalet was fully equipped with everything we could possibly need - kitchen utensils, coffee machine, fridge freezer etc. Bedrooms were cosy and spacious. An overall top experience - hopefully be back someday in the near future.
