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!

Weather in Switzerland

Summer is warm, lasting from June to September, with average temperatures peaking at around 25°C in July, the busiest tourist period. Switzerland's ski resorts open in mid-November and remain open until April. Winter temperatures can dip as low as -3°C in the mountains during the winter, but average temperatures are around 2°C during the coldest months.

Travel to Switzerland

Switzerland has three main Airports, Zurich Airport (ZRH), Bern Belp Airport (BRN) and Geneva Cointrin International Airport (GVA), so there is plenty of access to which ever destination you decide to take a holiday rental in Switzerland.

Fabulous Ski Holiday in tradition Swiss Ski chalet

5 of 5
Just back from a lovely skiing holiday in a beautiful chalet “La Taupiniere.” Recommendation from friends and couldn’t fault it. Warm homely chalet perfectly described with accompanying pictures. Gorgeous location only minutes from the funicular taking you to the beautiful Swiss mountains for some breathtaking scenery and amazing skiing for all levels. Mountain top restaurants with far reaching views over Switzerland. The chalets location allows easy access to Gstaad, Gruyere and other local towns & villages to sample delicious fondue and other local dishes without driving for miles. The Swiss were delightful and the area scenically beautiful and clean. On our return to the chalet a quick dip in the private swimming pool before a well earnt G&T! Looking so much to returning.
