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.

There is fantastic skiing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, bobsleighing, snow shoe hikes through picturesque snow covered forests and lively après-ski in abundance.

Heavenly view in deluxe accommodations!

5 of 5
The chalet apartment far exceeded our expectations . It was more spacious than pictures can depict and well-appointed, even down to our favorite item...a raclette maker! When we had guests and six persons were there, it did not feel crowded and all had privacy. Diane was very accommodating for our needs with linens, etc. Lauterbrunnen has to be one of the most beautiful villages on earth and we hope to return!

Am amazing place to stay in the heart of Mürren

5 of 5
In an era of hyperbole and 'fake news' the Grand Chalet is appropriately named. This is a home from home and has everything you might need for a stay. Most valued are the numerous balconies and terraces, particularly the one off the dining area that affords a perfect view across the Lauterbrunnen valley, to Tanzbödli and to Birg - a great spot to watch the sunsetting. The beautiful parquet flooring on the upper level is complimented by modern bathrooms and kitchen, and superb linen. The chalet is located in the centre of Mürren, a short distance from the Bahnhof (not far to wheel your case) and close to the Bakers and Coop. The great beauty of Mürren is that after the day trippers have departed you feel you have the village to yourself. It's a wonderful peaceful place, and a great staging base for walks.
