The Swiss ski resorts certainly have an excellent variety of accommodation including luxurious spa hotels. If you are looking for somewhere to stay, there is plenty of choice. Many owners choose to offer their properties as holiday rentals throughout the year which can mean renting a chocolate-box ski chalet, town house or an apartment.

The Swiss lakes are a very popular summer holiday destination visited by people from all over the world - this is because of the magnificent mountain vistas, excellent service, top class international cuisine and first rate accommodation.
