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!

The apartment was clean, spacious and well equipped. About a 5-10 min. walk the center of the village, but welcome after a hearty meal. Taxi from train station w.luggage was 20 CHF. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider renting the apartment again upon a return visit to Zermatt.

An ideal base for exploring the Lauterbrunnen valley, I would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

Paul greeted us in person and communication before our stay was excellent. We were given a guest card which gave you as much as 20% discount on various activities including the cable cars in Stoos. The apartment has everything required for a comfortable stay including a very well equipped kitchen. The bed was very comfortable with a huge velux window above your head. Lying there looking at the stars ( and one evening an amazing lightening storm) was truly magical. Morschach has several restaurants but is relatively small, although of course just a a couple of minutes walk away is the Swiss Holiday Park where there are many facilities to choose from including swimming pool,spas, mini golf etc. Brunnen which is considerably larger, is only 5 minutes away by car or about a 20 minute walk down ( at least 40 min on way up!). In Brunnen you can get the boat which can take you to various locations on Lake Lucern. We took the boat to Lucern, about 1hour 30 minutesaway, and returned by train. This was a great experience not to be missed. Lucern is a beautiful city and with the usual super efficient Swiss transport system, easy to get to. If you are reasonably fit you should definitely take the bus or your car to the base of the Stoos cable car ( only about 5 -10 mins away.) From there take cable car to Stoos, walk through village to the chairlift which takes you to the mountain Klingenstock. From there walk along a fantastic ridge ( not difficult) with breathtaking views of the surrounding Alps and in particular, as you near the end of the ridge walk at Fronalpstock, stunning views down to Lake Lucern. You then take the chairlift back down to Stoos for the return by Cable car to the car park. There are so many places to visit that one week is hardly enough time. There are many lakes in the area and many have cycle paths or at least fairly quiet roads surrounding them. In short this is a lovely part of Switzerland and staying at this apartment with its fantastic views from the balcony made our stay a truly memorable experience ,
