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.

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

Spacious and comfortable with good quality furnishings. It was very well equipped and had everything we needed. There were lovely views from every window and we enjoyed being able to sit out on the patio in the sunshine. Contact with the owners was excellent and the collection and return of keys to the local agent was very smooth. We certainly hope to return soon. Christine and Graham

Anne was a pleasure to deal with, unobtrusive but always on hand when we had any queries. Apartment was very well presented, clean and comfortable. Good wifi, and very safe/secure. Will definitely be back!
