With its breathtaking scenery, mountains, lakes, old towns…(I could go on forever,) Switzerland is just a must see destination and really should be on everyone’s bucket list! But why do we recommend you stay at holiday on the farm?
The Holiday on the farm hosts are so lovely
A sweeter couple you never did meet!
Germaine and Roland have transformed their roughly 100 yr old farmhouse into Holiday on the farm. They’ve put their all into making their home your home away from home and they are some of the kindest people we have ever met.
Sleep on the hay at Holiday on the farm
Why not opt for something slightly different during your stay at holiday on the farm and sleep on the hay, why not? Reside in the barn If you feel adventurous, sleep on the hay, where the cows and pigs used to spend their winters.
Germaine and Roland have transformed the barn into a cozy, comfortable perhaps one could say farmyard dorm room?? Lots of hay makes for a comfortable mattress and the warm sleeping bags will keep you snug as a bug.

Is Switzerland expensive?
Switzerland has a reputation as being expensive. We are honestly baffled by this, coming from living between Finland and Australia we can honestly say we were pleasantly surprised by the prices (in a good way) with the exception of hotels. We live in Finland at the moment and we can truthfully say that it is more expensive here in Finland than Switzerland.
However we did find accommodation expensive! That is another reason why Holiday on the farm is the place to stay, spend your money on experiences, not sleeping! I’m not sure you’ll be able to beat the cost of holiday on the farm, and especially given that if you are staying a while Germaine and Roland will give you a special price.
Driving around Switzerland seeing the sights
Now distance wise, coming from Australia long drives are in the blood, they’re welcomed! So driving around Switzerland is a breeze. It’s such a good country to drive around! The roads are amazing and awe-inspiring, don’t forget the Alps 😊
If you’re planning a holiday to Switzerland you’re probably planning on staying in different places… you shouldn’t because
- The cost of accommodation is expensive (as we mentioned before) and
- Driving between destinations isn’t so long
Now it does depend somewhat on what places you would like to visit and the amount of time you would like there and whether or not you like driving but… If you would just like to look around and have fun… Stay at holiday on the farm, the drive back is worth the view (as all of Switzerland is beautiful) and the savings are worth the drive.
Germaine and Roland’s cat
The animals that once resided on the old farm are long gone, however rejoice all cat lovers, there is the family cat!
