A quiet place to enjoy nature in northern Switzerland

  • 5 of 5

This spacious apartment was exactly what we were looking for. Located in a small village on the Rhine, it was a convenient location to cycle along the Rhine and to enjoy the countryside, both on the Swiss and German sides of the river. The hosts, Monica and Behrouz were helpful in telling us about the area and making recommendations for food in nearby Bad Zurzach. Rekingen is easy to reach from Zurich by train if one does not rent a car.

Delightful stay, wonderful owners.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Switzerland was all the more delightful thanks to our stay here in Rekingen. Monica was always very friendly and accommodating and ensured we had nothing to worry about whilst we were there. The apartment was spotlessly clean and very spacious, our one year old had great fun exploring whenever he got the chance! Thank you Monica for your hospitality, I'm sure we'll meet again.

Great size

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about the place and family that owns it. Warm and welcoming. True 5 star



Great swimming pools

20 min from Zurich

Large rooms

Great kitchen

Close to food shopping


You'll need a car

Shower head is a little low for tall people

If you're sensitive to cigaret smoke, they do smoke. But it wasn't a real problem for us.

So, if the con's aren't a problem this place is fantastic. Price is reasonable and easily handles us 5.

Large and comfortable appartement

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this appartement for almost 7 weeks. Our daughter age of 15 years did get treatment in Villigen. The place felt like home and was a very cosy place to stay. Enough space for every familymember. The property is clean and very well maintained and a full equipted kitchen. We loved the fireplace. Also the owners are very friendly and sympatic. The lakes in Switserland are very beautifull and the mountains also. The people we met in Switserland are also very friendly. The dialect is difficult for us to understand but most of the people and espescially the owners speak English very well. We sure would recommend this appartement to friends or relatives. We keep very good memories of the time there.

Great apartment..don't pass this one up

  • 4 of 5

We loved this apt! Entire 2nd floor of house. Very private. Driveway for car, access to washer and dryer, wireless internet. It was bright and spacious, homey and comfortable and the owners are fantastic. We agree with other reviews, they were so friendly and accommodating. Summer means open windows which meant early morning traffic noise..so just an awareness for light/late sleepers. Shopping and thermal baths minutes away in Bad Zurzach. Lots to see in this area - Basel, Zurich, Rhine Falls, Stein am Rhein. We loved our stay in Rekingen. Thanks Monica and Barous! We will definitely recommend this apt.

5 Stars all the Way and Fabulous for Families!

  • 5 of 5

Could not believe how wonderful this apartment was for our family! Our entire stay, from our initial emails to Monica, to our final farewell was an absolutely 5 star experience. Monica responded promptly to all of our questions and was there to greet us on arrival and show us through her beautiful apartment, which was warm and welcoming on a very snowy evening! We were impressed by the welcoming gift of chocolates and fruit which went down very well with our two teenage sons. The apartment itself is large, light and airy, which can be unusual in Switzerland, and is equipped with extremely high quality appliances and furnishings. The layout is excellent and allows for adults to sit and have an evening drink in either the dining room or out on the terrace while the kids are entertained in the living room. The beds are extremely comfortable, Australians might be a bit surprised to find the master bedroom consisting of two single beds pushed together, but this is the Swiss way! Access to the internet was greatly appreciated by all of us and allowed us to keep in touch with home as well as research the next stages of our travel. The apartment is very close to the German border, easy to pop over for some shopping or visit the Schwarzwald, don't miss Titisee and the magnificent Christmas shop that is open there all year round. It is also an easy drive to Baden where there is a larger shopping area and many more restaurants. We were lucky enough to be there during the Fasnacht festivities in February and had a great time listening to the Gugge Music and watching the parade on the Sunday afternoon. An amazingly Swiss experience if you are lucky enough to visit during this time. Bad Schinznach is the closest place to shop for groceries. We always use Migros as they seem to be the cheapest in Switzerland, next option would be the Coop. It is a great idea to cook for yourself when possible as CH is expensive. One of the very best elements of the apartment was access to a washing machine and dryer whenever we required it! Monica speaks excellent English and provides a number of ideas of places to go and see within the region which is just gorgeous for wandering around the nearby hills and woods. We can not recommend this apartment highly enough! We will definitely be back again and again!! Next time we want to see it in the summer time as it is right next to the Rhine River! Can't wait!

Rekingen, a little neighbour village from Bad Zurzach is situated straight on the Rhine, just across the border with Germany. From here you can visit a lot of places very easily, either by train or car, like Baden, Zurich, Winterthur, Basel or Waldshut. Or would you like to go for a bike tour starting in front of the house ? Go walking in the forest, along the Rhine, in summer have a swim in the Rhine, observe nature ? Play tennis, relax in the thermal bathes, have a training at the SPA Fitness. Far away from the daily stress and the daily live.

Other Activities: Thermal baths, wellness and fitness

Golf: The nearest golf course is situated in Bad Schinznach, approx 20 km., another in Stühlingen (Germany) approx. 30 km.
