Discover boutique hotels in Switzerland

Yes, it’s a nation of perfectly timed watches, more-ish chocolate and extremely functional pocket knives, but Switzerland also has high Alpine peaks, cities with postcard pretty mediaeval quarters, glittering lakes and some serious coin thanks to its banking industry links. Head to pretty Zurich for a relaxed city break, wander the well-heeled streets of Gstaad after a day flying through fresh powder or cosy up with a fondue in a gingerbread-like mountain lodge.

Destinations in Switzerland

  • Look at the lid of almost any tin of Swiss chocolates, and you’ll find a postcard-perfect village scene; the snow-sprinkled Alpine town of Adelboden could easily have posed for the picture.
  • Ski resort Flims in the Swiss Alps should be more famous than it is. Gstaad, Verbier and such hog the limelight, but Flims’ behemoth mountains and rugged valleys ensure skiing and snowboarding opportunities for beginners and Olympians alike.
  • Once a sleepy village of cattle farmers, Gstaad has made a name for itself as one of Switzerland’s most fashionable ski resorts, trading its cow sheds for fashion houses, turreted hotels and famous residents.
  • Alpine ski spot Saas-Fee, framed by 13 four-thousanders, could easily be mistaken for an icing-sugar-topped gingerbread village from a distance.
  • The warm sun-soaked slopes of Verbier make for the perfect year-round resort and the nightlife in this part of the Swiss Alps is pretty hot stuff, too.
  • With a cobblestoned Old Town to wander, a lake to perambulate, and a hip neighbourhood full of warehouses turned eateries, Zürich is much more than just chocolates and designer watches.
