  • Great location, Great apartment!

    "We loved our week in Marais and this apartment was perfect for the three of us. The apartment was spotless and provided a quiet respite to our hectic tourist activities. Very nice block, great restaurants and shops within steps of the apartment and a lovely park nearby. We were able to walk or Metro everywhere and our apartment agent met us on time and was lovely. We would return in a minute."

  • Decent Apartment in Good Neighborhood

    "We recently traveled to Paris for our wedding and chose to stay at an apartment rather than a hotel for space. This apartment was a good comfortable size for 2 people (and has a loft with another bed). The kitchen is not large, but a great size for Paris and big enough to prepare meals if you would like. The bathroom is an excellent size with a large shower (there is no tub, so if that's important to you--this is not the right place). Plenty of hot water--once you figure out how to use the hot water heater--ask them to show you instead of relying on the instruction book. While the apartment was clean, note that the furniture is a bit older and has slight stains--not as elegant as the pictures. And, the sofa is not full size--it's a love seat (which I personally think they should put a full size b/c it would fit in the living room). There is laundry in the unit but it is a shared washer/dryer which was very hard to figure out--the instructions in the book were for a different machine (again, ask them to show you how to use). It took us nearly 5 hours to do one load of laundry--I would suggest taking it all to a laundromat instead. The bed was pretty comfortable--couldn't complain and I'm super picky! The location is excellent--really easy to access the metro, walk to the seine & the eiffel tower. There is a pretty good restaurant on the bottom floor of the building. It was not loud at all except for one night when someone must have been having a party at the restaurant, otherwise, never noticed it. Also, the next door neighbor is wonderful--very lovely & helpful. Another thing to note, is the building is very old and needs some updating--this didn't bother me, but for some it may (hallway/front door need some attention). The elevator is also very tiny, BUT I was able to fit in it wearing a very large wedding dress, so I was happy. I would say 2 people can squeeze in without luggage, one person with a piece of luggage. All in all it was a good apartment, but a tad expensive for what we got in my opinion."

Switzerland Travel Tips

Visitors to Switzerland Vacation Rentals

Switzerland is a scenically beautiful destination. Most of the country is dominated by the towering Swiss Alps which remain snow-capped for a large portion of the year. Traditionally, Switzerland is a destination that has a high price tag attached to it. It is the home of luxury watchmakers, elite private banks, and arguably some of the best chocolate in the world. It therefore tends to attract the more affluent traveler. The Swiss Alps have been the favorite skiing destination for royalty and celebrities for decades. The resorts are run with typical European efficiency which makes Switzerland one of the oldest and finest skiing destinations in the world. From the start of the season in December all the way through to April, many skiing enthusiasts flock to the various resorts in Switzerland. A large majority of travelers are from neighboring countries such as Germany, Austria, Italy and France, as well as Belgium and the Netherlands.

Switzerland Travel Attractions

Skiing in the winter season is undoubtedly one of Switzerland’s main attractions. There are many leading resorts which include well-known names such as Verbier, Davos and Klosters. Most resorts are actually villages that are located in the valleys. Each village generally has two or three ski areas on the surrounding slopes. Ski lifts and cable cars provide easy access to the slopes. Most resorts have ski schools where you learn to ski or snowboard or simply improve your skills. Most ski runs are groomed and range in levels from beginner slopes to advanced black runs. Depending on your skiing ability, you may want to choose a resort area that caters to your level of skill.

Throughout the year, there are many spas that offer beauty therapy treatments and relaxation in stunning mountain surroundings. You can visit for a day or weekend, or stay a week enjoying the hot mineral baths and pampering treatments. Many are located within easy driving distance from the ski resorts and can be accessed by buses and trains in all seasons.

When the snow melts, the Alps open up to a whole range of adventure activities. Mountaineering enthusiasts take on the highest peaks and casual hikers can enjoy exploring the lower slopes. In recent years, mountain biking has become a popular pastime and there are many marked biking trails on the mountains. There are also sections of the Rhine that have excellent whitewater rafting in season. Local outfitters run commercial trips for rafts and kayaks depending on your level of paddling skills.

Switzerland’s cities are incredible to experience. Museums, theaters, art galleries, and some of the most exclusive shopping in the world make them worth a visit. The two main cities are Zurich and Geneva which are located within relatively easy driving distance of one another. The surrounding lakes also offer many summer recreational activities.

Seasons to Travel to Switzerland Chalets

Switzerland is a superb destination to visit at any time of year. The season that you choose to travel in will depend largely on what your interests are. The ski season typically starts in December and runs through April, depending on the season’s snowfalls. The peak period for skiers is between late December and February. Spring is a particularly beautiful time of year in Switzerland and great for outdoor enthusiasts that don’t mind the remaining chill in the air. The summer days are long and warm, and perfect for a wide range of outdoor explorations.

Getting to Switzerland Vacation Rentals

For many European travelers, the easiest and most convenient way to travel is by train. High-speed intercity trains link all major towns and cities, and smaller conventional trains will take you to the villages and ski resorts. International airports are located in both Zurich and Geneva, and host a wide variety of international and regional airlines on regularly scheduled commercial flights.
