  • Perfect for us

    "Two retired couples rented this apartment for 7 nights. Met or exceeded expectations. Location including close proximity to the Metro and a full service grocery store were perfect. Privacy because of separate bedroom. Fully equipped kitchen more than met our needs. We made most evening meals, all breakfasts, and took sandwiches for most of our daytime adventures. Property manager extremely helpful. One should note that the shower might be challenging for someone with a physical disability."

  • Perfect house, perfect location.

    "An Teach Ban exceeded all our expectations. Six of us, ranging in age from 2 to 65, visited Connemara in January and spent a fantastic week staying in An Teach Ban. Everything was perfect from the outset and the owner Judith could not have been nicer or more helpful. She went out of her way to ensure we had a holiday to remember and all the arrangements were looked after with the utmost of care and attention. The house is tucked away on a beautiful inlet and is a 15 minute drive to the main town in the area. It is in an ideal location to explore the Connemara countryside with plenty of hill walks and hidden beaches a few minutes away by foot. Inside is spotlessly clean, comfortable and has everything needed for a hassle-free break. The kitchen/dining-room is spacious and very well equipped and the sitting room is a great place to relax with a lovely fire and amazing views. The three bedrooms are generous doubles with plenty of storage. We will definitely be going back!"

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.
