Options for all in stunning Switzerland

Switzerland hardly needs an introduction. Known around the world as much for its soaring mountain peaks and beautifully-preserved towns as it is for exquisite timepieces, creamy chocolate and financial smarts, the country is one of the most visited in Europe. Beyond the inspiring landscapes, fine goods and wealthy lifestyle, Switzerland serves up cosmopolitan cities with world-class cultural attractions and tranquil towns with pretty churches and medieval alleys. This is a country that comes in many different flavors. From smart apartments in Bern to traditional chalets in Grindelwald, Switzerland vacation rentals have you covered with a selection of homes to suit all tastes.

Living the mountain lifestyle in Switzerland

The Matterhorn dominates local life as much as it does the landscape in the southern town of Zermatt. Perhaps the most famous of Alpine peaks, and certainly the most distinctive, the mountain provides an idyllic backdrop for hiking, climbing and skiing. In the town below, boutique stores and haunts for foodies stretch along the main street of Bahnhofstrasse, serving up plenty of reasons to enjoy your vacation at a slower pace. Before returning to your rental, be sure to swing by one of the lively apres-ski venues, where good company and great wine are almost always part of the deal.

Star turns in Switzerland

In a country of must-sees, choosing which of Switzerland's attractions to include in your adventures can be tricky. You're unlikely to see them all, nor would you want to. It's far better to experience a chosen few properly. Perhaps you'll take a breathtaking gondola ride beside Mount Titlis or the equally-daring roller coaster-like trip on the Gelmer Funicular in the Bernese Oberland. Maybe you'll board the scarlet-colored Bernina Express at Chur or St. Moritz and travel past postcard-perfect towns, dramatic mountain scenes and glistening glaciers all the way to the Italian town of Tirano, the train's panoramic cars offering mesmerizing views of this unique Alpine landscape.

Seasonal highlights in Switzerland

If you're heading high into the mountains, Switzerland offers 2 distinct seasons. The summer months of June through October are the perfect time to combine visits to eclectic Verbier and exclusive St. Moritz with long hikes through the spectacular surroundings of the Swiss Alps. In the winter season of mid-December through mid-April, those same surroundings transform to provide an unforgettable backdrop for all manner of winter sports. In between seasons, mountain facilities are at a bare minimum. No matter, though. Switzerland vacation rentals in the country's vibrant towns and cities provide the perfect base for adventure all year round.

Regional appeal in Switzerland

Though perhaps best known for the Alps, Switzerland boasts a diverse array of natural delights, and often, you'll find them within easy reach of your vacation home. Switzerland vacation rentals in the buzzy city of Zurich are a mere excursion away from the drama of the 23-meter Rhine Falls, where a boat trip to the river basin surely counts as one of life's unforgettable experiences. Elsewhere, rentals near Lake Geneva in the south of the country place the sights, sounds and delights of the Swiss Riviera on your doorstep.
