Picturesque mountain villages

Get away to the peace of a mountain village with pure alpine air

 

A holiday in a mountain village is a different experience from staying beside one of Switzerland’s famous lakes.

The dramatic landscape and the refreshing clear air are the appeal and where you can really feel part of the mountains. The resorts are only a short ride away from these awesome beauty spots, using the network of cable car or mountain railway. Although the spring and summer seasons are later and shorter in the mountains, you are sure to come back home with vivid memories. Please call us for more details on 0800 619 1200.
