Do you want to have a peaceful and exciting holiday high in the Swiss Alps? Then check out our chalet accommodations in Switzerland.

So don’t wait any longer and dive into the fresh mountain air, incredible landscapes and crystal-clear lakes of Switzerland. Go to sleep under the dancing bright stars in the dark night sky and wake up to the sound of little birds singing on your window. A chalet in Switzerland is the perfect choice if you are not a fan of extreme heats, scorching beaches and hotel rules.

Nature

Many amazing water bodies were created over the years from the movement of glaciers. Thanks to the glaciers the Swiss landscape is very diverse and beautiful. From deep and narrow valleys and canyons to thick ancient forests to white mountain tops, peaking above the clouds.

On the border between Switzerland and Italy is located the worldly renowned Matterhorn mountain. You might have seen it on the logo of a Toblerone chocolate. At a dizzying 4,478 meters high it’s one of the tallest mountains in the Alps. Laying at almost 3500 meters is the Jungfraujoch. With its amazing views, there is no wonder why people call it the Top of Europe. Nearby you can find the Death Wall of Eiger. Its vertical north face bears this name, because of all the deaths of experienced climbers trying to subdue the mountain. The largest glacier that can be found in Europe is located here in Switzerland. The Aletsch Glacier stretches for 23 kilometers and, since 2001 the glacier was officially included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

There is no better place to see the power of glaciers than the Lauterbrunnen Valley. This ancient glacial valley is 3 kilometers deep! Its distinctive U-shape makes it easy to imagine the massive glaciers that carved it from the surrounding mountains. Not to mention, a staggering 72 waterfalls line the valley. Among the many waterfalls in the Lauterbrunnen Valley are the Staubbach Falls, the highest free-falling waterfall in Europe, where the water cascades from 300 meters high.

One of the most beautiful Alpine lakes is Oeschinensee. Although it is not the biggest in size. Its beauty will leave you breathless. Like a mirror, it reflects the surrounding mountain walls that surround it, making it perhaps the most photogenic lake in the Alps. The largest lake in Switzerland, and in the Alps, Lake Geneva curves for 73 kilometers from Geneva, on the western border with France, all the way along to the resort town of Montreux. Towering above it are the Alps, making for dramatic views along the breadth of the water’s edge. Europe’s largest underground lake is found in Switzerland, along the Rhone valley. Glacial flow from the nearby Eiger Glacier is responsible for the wonder that is the Trümmelbach Falls, a spectacular network of 72 underground waterfalls. Carved by thousands of years of erosion, the Fairies’ Grotto in St. Maurice is home to a subterranean lake and a thundering 50-meter-high underground waterfall.

Activities

At an altitude of around 3883 meters between Zermatt and Breuil-Cervinia lies the highest ski area in Switzerland, the Matterhorn ski paradise. 360 kilometers of blue, red, black and yellow runs promise fantastic skiing. Guests can use modern lifts and cable cars, including the Matterhorn glacier ride. The snow park Zermatt offers a summer skiing adventure with the advantage of doing it in your beach wear.

Since we are on a summer vibe, the best way for a refreshing summer day would be hiring a lake pedalo on Lake Zurich. Pedalos can be hired from the lake's many boat hire companies and although it may look like you're messing around with an oversized child's toy, you'll be burning more calories than on a bike ride up an Alpine pass. Rafting and canoeing on one of the many rivers is also a great way of creating exciting memories.

If you are not a fan of water, try out SolarBob. ‘SolarBob’ is a nifty no-snow-required bobsled in Basel’s leafy outskirts which allows you to hurtle down a one-kilometer-long track, before being carried back to the top by a solar-powered lift. You can also hike or cycle along the rocky beaches of the calm and beautiful mountain lakes. Or take your mountain bike and try your skills in Switzerland's untouched forests. And after a long day filled with adventures go home to your chalet, light up the fireplace, pour a glass of red wine and have some famous swiss cheese, while enjoying the sunset through your window. If you are a mountain lover, our chalets in Switzerland will not disappoint!

Climate

The climate is moderate with no excessive heat, cold or humidity. From July to August the daytime temperature range is 18 to 28 °C and from January to February the range is -2 to 7 °C. In spring and autumn, the daytime temperature range is 8 to 15 °C. Depending on the altitude the temperature range may vary. It is highly recommended to visitors to pack a sweater, good walking shoes, sunscreen, sunglasses, a compact umbrella or a light rain coat.

The seasons are clearly distinguishable. In autumn, the fruit ripens and the leaves of deciduous trees change color. The winters were formerly generally cold and snowy, but now freezing temperatures and snow are no longer the rule, especially in the lowlands. In spring the trees blossom and the meadows turn green. Sometimes in April the winter returns for a short period and sometimes there are summer conditions as early as May. Summer temperatures rise to 25 to 30°C, with temperatures exceeding the 30°C mark during hot summers.
