Make a holiday rental villa or lodging in Vaud/Lake Geneva, Switzerland your home away from home

The second largest fresh water lake in Europe, Lake Geneva, comes into the regions of Geneva, Valais and Vaud, Switzerland. The vast majority of Lake Geneva however falls into the region of Vaud (pronounced Voh). Everything that springs to mind when you think of Switzerland; stunning mountain scenery, beautiful Alpine village, cow bells, dramatic castles and picturesque lakes can all be found here, along with much, much more.

Things to do on holiday in Vaud/Lake Geneva, Switzerland

The first time you stay on the shores of Lake Geneva will certainly not be the last time you take lodging in Vaud. The scenery is indescribable, the nature unspoilt and the locals hugely welcoming, which all makes it hard to leave when your holiday is up.

In winter, the glaciers and Alpine slopes of Vaud are scattered with down-hill and cross-country skiers and snowshoe hikers in the Jura Mountains. There are over 500km of downhill pistes available, and a huge number of alternative sports on offer, including hot air balloon rides. Taking a holiday rental or in fact any lodging in Vaud will mean that you will have a hard day of sport in the mountains or on the lakeside by day, and retire to either your chalet or some of the fine restaurants which adorn the region. The cuisine is simple, rustic and absolutely delicious, giving you the energy and stamina needed to tackle another day in the fresh air of Vaud.

The cities of Nyon, Rolle and Lausanne are great centres for shopping and relaxing, whatever time of year it is. During the summer, the countryside becomes a haven for walkers, as the scenery is simply spectacular, dotted by huge chateaux and proud castles.

Lake Geneva holidays in the summer make great use of the bluest waters in Switzerland. The lake is crossed by small sailing boats, either simply enjoying the calm and the scenery or fishing for perch, pike and trout.

One of the nicest ways to discover the region in summer from a Vaud holiday lodging is to rent a bike and cycle along the banks of Lake Geneva, Switzerland, and stop off at a few of the vineyards, many of which offer wine tasting holidays.

In winter, the Alps of Vaud become the focus for Lake Geneva holidays. The skiing is exceptional, for both down-hill and cross-country skiing. However, in the summer, the mountains draw walkers, mountaineers and climbers from all over the world to enjoy the excellent natural setting and awe-inspiring views.

Good location with comfortable accommodation.

4 of 5
We had a very nice stay apart from being snowed in for 3 days. Well epuipped and really comfortable bed and pillows, which is absolutely essential after a hard days skiing. The owners have been very helpful throught the booking process and whilst we were there. Happy to recommend this apartment.

That. View.

5 of 5
This is definitely the house with the best view ever. Comfortable, clean, complete and close to skiing-area. After skiing, there is plenty of room for a cozy evening in the kitchen or by the fireplace, or warming up and relaxing in the sauna. Oh, and did I mention the view?

Perfect for families. Enough space, parking, near enough to beginner slope to come back for lunch..

5 of 5
We spent a lovely few days at Andy's place. Enough space and well equipped with 2 small kids. Free parking and right next to the beginners slope and free magic carpet, so we could walk to the slope and easily go back for lunch or if the weather turned bad. Leysin has a host of other activities as well like skating, tubing and swimming, indoor climbing etc. A beautiful view from the balcony really helped make for a nice alpine getaway with small kids...
