Swiss Alps Holiday Rentals - Ski Apartments and Chalets in Swiss Alps
Characterised by majestic mountains, cool lakes, gorgeous countryside and stunning valleys, the Swiss Alps are a beautiful destination for those who love the outdoors. Hike, ski or eat your way through the region and discover all of the charming places within the area. Whether you're looking to go car-less at an apartment in Zermatt or escape in luxury to a St. Moritz ski chalet, there are lots of holiday rentals in the Swiss Alps to choose from.
When to visit the Swiss Alps
When you should visit the Swiss Alps depends on your preferred activities while on holiday. If you want to spend snowy days out on the slopes, visit from December to March. At this time of the year, places like St. Moritz and Zermatt are at their peak with world-class winter sports abound. Book a holiday rental in the Swiss Alps between June and September if you'd rather not have to bundle up to go outdoors. These summer months bring temperatures that hover around 25 degrees Celsius and the mountain passes are always open.
Things to do in Swiss Alps
Situated in the heart of Switzerland, the Swiss Alps is a vast and wildly popular alpine destination for travellers from around the world. During the warmer months, enjoy the fresh air while exploring the classic Swiss scenery. In Verbier, get your bearings by taking a guided bike tour through the mountains. Leave straight from your Swiss chalet and bike through the area until you're ready for wine and cheese at one of the bars in Verbier. If you're feeling adventurous, go paragliding in Locarno or climb to the top of the imposing surrounding mountains. Lake Lugano is another wonderful warm-weather destination in the Swiss Alps and taking a boat cruise across the lake is a must.
If you're visiting during the winter, take a ski or snowboard lesson at the Premier Alpine Centre in Nendaz. Afterwards, test your skills on the slopes of legendary mountains in the Swiss Alps. Davos is the highest city in Europe and has five incredible spots for skiing. In Zermatt, which sits at the base of the famed Matterhorn, ascend the mountain via cable car, funicular or gondola for awe-inspiring panoramic views.
Perfectly positioned in Switzerland, the Swiss Alps has a little bit of everything. Travel here during any season, and you're guaranteed to find something to see and do for everyone.

*The Best Chalet in Zermatt Voted by Conde Nast* - Chalet Grace - 5 Bedrooms
Love this Chalet and the View was Great
Although the chalet is a little further from town than we were initially looking for, Linda at Exceptional Villas had told me it was worth the extra 5 minutes’ walk. The chalet did not disappoint. Wow wow wow! The views are so stunning and the chalet was just perfect for our group. It was cozy and luxurious with a spa room on the ground floor. We had massages several days during our stay. Zermatt is a wonderful place and having been there in both Winter and Summer the town offers something for everyone in both seasons. I would highly recommend this chalet. …
Lake View Apartment-Morcote, Lugano
An unbelievbly beautifull place
We stayed at Grant's appartment for 3 nights and we didn't want to leave. The view from the balcony was addictive, and the place was roomy and comfortable for a couple plus a 7 year old girl.
Thank you. …
Apartment Bon Sejour LATE DEALS - 50m from lifts
Great apartment, great location!
The apartment is really conveniently located, opposite the ski lifts for Grimentz and the connecting gondola for Zinal, very close to shops and restaurants. The apartment itself is very well equipped, nothing was missing, its very clean and cosy and has a good layout for a family of 5. The balconies on either side provide a nice view (great spot for watching the fireworks on New Year's Eve!) Underground parking and ski room also really convenient.
The hosts were fantastic in their communications, Shirley provided us with lots of information prior to arrival, including a snow report, and answered all our questions really quickly. We will definitely be back, thank you so much! …
Traditional, Luxurious Swiss Chalet
Gorgeous and very cosy chalet.
Beatiful chalet with a very warm feel. We stayed here with another family and found it spacious and comfortable for us all especially as it has 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms all of which were kept to a very high standard. The chalet was lovely and warm and gave you a cosy feel in the evenings...perfect for enjoying a coffee and playing card games with friends! Getting there from Geneva airport was so easy as was getting about on the train which stopped right outside the chalet. The thermal baths were only a short walk away which both us adulds and kids enjoyed so much. We would love to come back and stay again! …
Great flat, fantastic skiing
I booked this accommodation for a family skiing holiday. Kieren was very helpful in booking our skiiing lessons and equipment, always prompt with his communication and very polite.
The flat is in a shared chalet, it has an underground car park, but access is via a steep slope so in the snow you'll struggle to get out .
The flat is really well equipped, plenty of everything, after a day on the slopes we were all ready to crash and watch a DVD.
There are 3 bedrooms - mattresses are a bit firm for my liking, and 2 bathrooms one with a bath and the other with a walk-in shower.
The flat is 5 mins walk from the ski chair lift, but you can also drive down and park next to the lift. Morgins is pretty quiet, a couple of super markets and a few restaurants. However, a quick ride down to Chatel in France which is a much more lively place.
As for the skiing, Morgins is part of Portes du Soleil region, it's a great location for all levels.
We all really enjoyed our stay here and will definitely be looking to stay again. …
Comfortable, spacious and well-organised
While we did not get our original apartment due to an admin mishap, Guy seemlessly upgraded us to another, bigger, lovely apartment, and between them him and Becky were very helpful in terms of organisation and tips. I would definitely go back. …
Stayed before - everything very good
We have stayed before. Owner very friendly, accommodating and professional. Would defiantly stay again. Leukerbad is a fantastic village with everything you need within walking distance or on a free bus. Super place …
Chalet Etoile Polaire
Superb Ski Location
Our family has recently returned from a great half term ski week. The chalet has plenty of room for our party of 6 adults and 4 children and is very well equipped. We came with prepared meals for the family and enjoyed use of the not to be missed Swiss Raclette cookers for the annual cheese meal. This year saw almost record snow falls so skiing for the family was excellent and grandchildren were very pleased with the Thyon ski school. The chalet is very conveniently located near the High Street and grandchildren and their parents were easily able to walk to the chair lift whilst grandparents made use of the improved free ski bus service from Les Collons to the Thyon 2000 resort and ski runs. This was another great ski week and this chalet is highly recommended by our family. …
Luxury Chalet with hot tub near lifts and village
Faultless, spacious chalet with lots of added extras; such as games room, hot tub and sauna. Only 10 mins walk from the town and piste. Would reccommed bar alt 1330 micro brewery for great burgers and beers and la cantina bar/restaurant for easy, reasonably priced food. For shopping bypass Pams and walk the exra couple of mins to the coop for vastly better variety and value.
Slopes great for absolute beginners with good childrens area and fantastic for advanced with lots of great off piste. For learners finding their feet head to siviez on the bus for a better selection of suitable pistes. …
Exceptional apartment for location, equipment, size and comfort.
The Adona exceeded our expectations. It was convenient for the centre of Zermatt, yet peaceful and excellently situated with a clear view of the Matterhorn. Just below the apartment there is a good restaurant, the Ambience, where the menu was delicious and imaginative. The staff could not have been more helpful.
The apartment itself was spacious, with balcony surrounding all sides. Rooms were large and well decorated with a modern touch, and so warm. Lovely after a day on the mountains ! We were a group of four, two couples, and we each had our privacy with individual bathrooms. Every possible piece of kitchen equipment was provided, including an excellent coffee machine. We could not have chosen better!
The owner, Anne, was kind and communicative in every way. Thank you. …
