  • Wonderful fall stay in a great location

    "We are just back from this lovely flat. We were two couples and found the living space especially nice to plot our next days plans. We were happy with the two bedrooms and baths. We bought prepared foods several evenings, and really enjoyed eating in. Liked Le Metro as a restaurant and also Cafe Rouge, both nearby, and very easy and good. London was a little hotter than we planned and with the open windows there was some street noise, but it became much quieter after 10PM and we slept well. Would highly recommend this flat to anyone and would love to go back. There is an elevator and Matt was so helpful when we arrived. Do walk around the neighborhood and look at the fantastic cars, they were unbelievable. Thanks so much to Bonnie for ease of reservation and sending such wonderful information about the area and apartment."

  • CLEAN, QUIET AND MODERN APARTMENT WITH A STUNNING VIEW!

    "My husband and I stayed in this wonderful apartment for 4 days in October to explore this fabulous city. We loved it so much! The apartment was exactly what we wanted. It was clean, quiet and modern with a STUNNING view of the Duomo. The photos don't do it justice!!!! The apartment itself was very well maintained and very spacious, especially by European standards. All the features were modern, the kitchen well-equipped and the beds very comfortable. The wifi was very strong and stable . Our owner, Daniela, was so very nice and helpful. She was waiting for us outside the apartment, showed us around, and gave us her contact in case we had any questions or concerns during our stay. A very nice touch was having something to drink upon our arrival. The apartment was in the perfect location for experiencing the sights and sounds of Florence - culture, art, architecture, and shopping. We were able to walk to everything, including all the major historic sites, Ponte Vecchio, Accademia, Uffizi, etc, in two minutes or less. This is one of the best apartments I have ever rented, if I have the opportunity to return, I will definitely connect with Daniela again. Grazie!"

  • PERFECT HOUSE ON PERFECT LOCATION

    "The house is perfectly located, close to Avignon, with lot of shops in vicinity. Our arrival was stressful, cosed by flight delay and it took us three days to reach it. The only problem was that the owner was absent and the staff or the people responsible for the reception of guests were hard to reach. One of them gave me the wrong code to open the gate, the other person was busy, but at the end we managed to enter in this beautiful property. The house is perfectly equipped. We did find lot of brochures about the cities and attractions around Avignon. We would recommend the house for families, groups of people over 60. Perfect location to discover this part of France."

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.
