Summer in Switzerland

 Summer in Switzerland

 

Allow Me has had a very busy winter and I also welcomed Harry to the family. He was born on the 8th of January and has kept me very busy during the winter.

IMG_3924One event that Allow Me organized this winter was the “mini-moon” for Chalie and Dave in Verbier. They got married in Gstaad in March and then invited 25 friends to Verbier for a week. They were so lucky with the snow and we had powder almost every day. Allow Me planned every detail of a
fun filled week. We organized everything from night sledging, lunch time meals, ski guides, private parties, massages, 5 * chalet for everyone to stay in and so much more. It was a very successful week and the last day
finished with everyone dressed up in animal suits and skiing the Verbier 4 Valleys.17157403_1363633437028529_7881318671103103571_o

Here is a lovely quote from Charlie and Dave about the work Allow Me
did. “Thank you Chris for making our “mini-moon” one of the best weeks of our life. From when we first met to discuss our plans to the very last moment of our trip you made every wish happen. Allow Me made what could have been a chaotic experience with our 25 friends into a week of laughter, relaxation and huge amounts of fun. Thank you for helping
us create amazing memories. 
Thanks again Chris”

WEEKEND BREAKS

biking copyThe Swiss Alps are stunning in the summer.  There is so much to do in the mountains for all the family from golf, 2016-07-07 16.27.30tennis, hiking, biking, BBQ, swimming in mountain lakes or the wonderful swimming pools and time relaxing in the Swiss alps. Why not take full advantage of the mountains and book a weekend break. For more ideas on places to go, activities to do with the family then please get in touch and Allow Me will be able to organise an unforgettable break for you.

 

BIKING IN THE MOUNTAINS SURROUND ZURICH AND ZUGbiking

With both Zurich and Zug surrounded by amazing countryside, why not explore the beautiful countryside on your bike. There are lots of lovely restaurants to have a relaxing meal and with lots of quiet cycle paths and country roads, it’s a great day out for the whole family. For ideas on where to go then please get in touch as we know routes for all levels of cyclists, and can also recommend bike shops!

 

OPEN AIR CINEMAS

The open air cinemas normally start in July and go on till the end of August. You will find screens put up by the lake and if you have not been, it’s definitely worth a visit. The best screen to visit is the Salt Openair which will take place at the specially built open air cinema at the Zurichhorn in Zurich from 16th July to 16th August.  Be warned, spaces can fill up fast, so it’s best to make a booking as soon as the schedule is announced.

 

BOAT TRIPS ON LAKE ZURICH AND LAKE ZUG

Both lake Zurich and lake Zug have amazing cruises where you can enjoy a leisurely boat ride and enjoy the countryside, stopping off at various points along the lake or just go on a lunch cruise and enjoy your trip in style. This is a great trip for visiting guests (especially those with mobility issues) or a nice family day out.

 

BADI TIME!

image1One of the best things about living in Switzerland in the summer has to be swimming in the “Badis” (the outdoor pools). Not only are there plenty of badis to choose from but they are all slightly different. Some offer snacks and drinks, live music and DJ’s, and others are a bit more family friendly. The facilities vary widely and they all have their own special character and charm – everyone has their own favorite! For a list of badis in Zurich click here and for Zug click here. It’s often best to buy a season pass and then you have unlimited access to check out them all!

 

Though out the summer Allow Me will keep you up to date with what is going in Zurich and Zug so that we can help you have the best summer. If Allow Me can help you in any way during the busy summer period, then please get in touch. Have a great week and thanks for reading.

Start your Ski Season in LAAX

danuser-160310094026-2

Allow Me can help with all your weekend (or longer) ski break bookings during the winter season and with over twelve years of involvement in the winter sports industry we can make sure you have an unforgettable and stress free ski break.

 

Films-Laax-Falera – Located just a short (circa 90 minutes) drive from Zurich, LAAX is the marketing name for the linked ski circuit above the villages of Flims, Laax and Falera, which is regarded – glorified, even – as Europe’s leading freestyle resort. With 224 kilometres of slopes and five downhill runs with artificial snow, multiple snow parks and the world’s largest superpipe, Laax is unquestionably one of the best winter resorts in Europe.  The original village of Laax is a short bus ride away from the lifts but Laax Murschetg, a more ski-friendly purpose built satellite, has recently been built around the base-station with the rocksresort at its heart. This resort has become a serious magnet for snowboarders, who congregate at the trendy Riders Palace hotel, but the accessibility to the lifts, and on-site food and shopping make it ideal for skiers and families too. With a number of cool eateries and an apres-ski scene that explodes at the weekend when young people pour in from Zurich, the rocksresort is the perfect mix of great skiing and après-ski for a weekend break.

 

With over a metre of fresh snow last weekend, LAAX will be opening the ski resort and some of the slopes around Crap Sogn Gion this weekend, starting on Saturday 12th November.
