  • A Dream Vacation in Spain

    "What an amazing villa to spend a fun relaxing vacation in! Even off-season time (I traveled at the end of Feb) turned out to be just beautiful, with mild weather. Quite unexpected for a European getaway. A Perfect location to spend a few days with a girlfriend, your partner or even with the family. The Villa is just beautiful, located on top of the hill, where the view is breathtaking at every hour of the day. The hot tub is a real treat, and the kitchen is equipped with anything that you may need if you wish to make a romantic dinner. The house and its surroundings are clean and tidy with no exceptions. This vacation really topped any expectation I had. Definitely worth the trip. I would love to return for a second stay in the future. ????? ???????, ???? ?????? ???????, ??????? ????, ????? ??? ???. ???? ???????? ?? ?????? ?? ?????? - ?????, ?'???? ?????? ?????? ???? ?????. ???? ???? ????? ????? ??? ???? ???? ????, ????, ?? ???????? ?????? ??????. ???? ?????, ??????, ?????? ????. ????? ?????."

  • Wonderful! Perfect Location!

    "My husband and I just got back last week from an amazing trip to Paris! We spent 11 nights in Marie-Ange's Very Center Paris apartment so believe me when I tell you that this apartment is in the most perfect location!! The RER B line from Charles DeGaulle airport is just right down the street, St. Michel stop. We were able to take that to and from the airport without a problem. Even with our 2 huge suitcases! The Metro line 4 is also right there so traveling anywhere in Paris is a breeze. But you can walk to Notre Dame Cathedral, St. Chappelle, and Cluny Museum(The Lady and the Unicorn Tapestries are a must see!!) in 5-10 minutes. You could even walk to the Louvre if you wanted to. Its not too far and a fun walk along the Seine with all the booksellers and artists. There are lots of restaurants, souvenir, and other shops nearby as well as grocery stores, a pharmacy and really anything you need in walking distance. The apartment was very clean and exactly as described, and pictured. We really enjoyed the large shower with excellent water pressure and towel rack. We never had a problem with the water heater. The place where the toilet was is pretty tiny but like another reviewer said, "Hey, you're in Paris". The bed was a king (2 mattresses put together) and very comfortable. There was a really nice hair dryer. And as a bonus surprise, a really nice flat iron!! The clothes washer/dryer combo was really thorough! We found that we needed to use the speed setting and start it in the morning, not while we were trying to sleep! There is also an iron and ironing board. The kitchen is small but has everything you need, including a little dishwasher. Marie-Ange was available for us when we needed to call her. And she always responded very quickly to our emails. Our deposit was returned very quickly as well. All in all I would recommend this apartment again and again. The price is right, the location really is perfect, the bed is comfortable, and the necessities are all there!"

  • Three retired Missouri Teachers

    "Thank you for sharing the "home away from home" with us! We absolutely loved it! Loved the house, the view and Sharon! She did a fantastic job taking care of us! We wish we could have met Phil, but she wasn't feeling well during the time we were there; however, she communicated with us. The site that described the house, view and area were totally correct! The view is "to die for"! My husband admired the construction of the house, the design, the stone, and appreciated all the workmanship. Amazing, beautiful place. When we had to leave, we all three said we must return! Again, wonderful, beautiful place! Thank you for sharing!!! If you are looking for a place to rent in the Dingle area, rent this house!!! You will love it!"

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.
