I thought my holiday would be good but I was unprepared for how brilliant I would feel by the end of the week evening standard

switzerland

A fantastic country for both winter sports and summer adventures.  We have a selection of hand picked recommendations....

With so many daily flights in to Geneva, it's an easy destination for just a couple of days (if that's all you can spare), particularly with our efficient pick up and transfer service.  We can't quite decide whether we prefer the Alps in the summer or the winter but, whichever season you choose, you can be sure of a wonderfully healthy holiday - all in the absolute luxury of Sir Richard Branson's Lodge in Verbier or the equally luxurious, newly opened, 56 bedroom Alpina Gstaad hotel. 

Obviously the winter months focus on skiing, but you could always try cross country or snow shoeing.  It's something different and terrifically good  exercise, and allows you to explore the mountains away from the pistes.

In the summer, the Alps has started to become a lakes and mountains playground where you can hike, mountain bike, play golf, go horse riding.... We can design a mixture of activities to keep you and your family, or a gang of adults, very well entertained.

Overlooking the pretty village of Arosa, the Tschuggen Grand Arosa - with its incredible spa - is a fabulous choice for a winter ski holiday or an active summer holiday experience.  Nearest airport: Zurich.

In the foothills of the Alps, in a region known as Heidiland, we recommend Grand Resort Bad Ragaz.  A perfect destination for a rejuvenating wellness holiday.  Just an hour from Zurich by train or car.
