How To Get to Switzerland
Switzerland's central European position means it is easily accessible by road and rail from neighbouring countries France, Italy and Germany. For those coming from the UK or even further afield, the best option is to fly into either Zürich or Geneva International airport, depending on where your holiday rental is positioned nearer the east or west of the country. To travel into these major Swiss cities from the airport will both take around 40 minutes to an hour and are accessible from public transport links. For those staying in short term apartment rentals in other areas of the country, it would be more suitable to hire a car, which would allow you the freedom to find your accommodation at your own pace.
Getting to the Alps is easy from Geneva, simply pre-book a transfer. Transfers to the 3 valleys take around 3 hours but to closer resorts like Morzine the journey is considerably less. Geneva airport also has a well connected train station.

Renting an apartment in Switzerland is the most cost effective way to immerse yourself in Swiss culture, so there is no better way to spend your savings than on the countries national dishes. Raclette, polenta, Rosti and fondue are all specialty dishes in Switzerland, so do not leave without sampling all of the original flavours which this country has to offer. These foods are available in endless restaurants across the country, but if you really are feeling inspired then you could even attempt to make them yourself in your own self-catered apartment in Switzerland. Additionally, be sure to brush up on your French, German or Italian before visiting, as a mixture of the languages are spoken due to the bordering countries of Switzerland.
