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.

Chalet Les Hirondelles if by far the very best we have ever stayed at. Firstly it has the most unbelievable view from every window. It is decorated with huge style and comfort and has a wonderful friendly feel to it ... a little like being in ones own home. All the bedrooms are of a fantastic size with their own immaculate and up to date bathrooms. The kitchen is equipped with everything you will need and more. The open plan living room with central fireplace is stunning and works so well as an entertaining space and equally well as a space to sit and read your book while looking at that view! If you have children their is a great games room, TV/snug room and a wonderful hot tub - we couldn't get our children out of this! It is located just off the slopes so makes for the perfect start and end to your skiing day. I highly recommend a stay at Chalet Les Hirondelles - you will never want to stay anywhere else again!

A few points to consider - 1 You will need a car due to the location of the apartment 2 You can either hire a car in Geneva ( as we did ) or take a train to Aigle and hire a car there 3 The property was very clean and well maintained 4 The town of Villars has good services 5 Make use of all the walking tracks available in the area and the many restaurants that complement each walk 6 I would recommend this property for those people who are looking for a quiet and safe area
