When involved in the process to relocate to Switzerland, some future or potential employees often like to come with their spouse and sometime with the family to visit the region around their future place of employment.
It’s a very good way to connect with the place, to meet the inhabitants and to decide what will be the preferred place to look for accommodations at a later stage. I personally recommend to take the opportunity of this pre-departure visit, to involve the spouse or partner in the decision making process.
I would like here to offer some support in offering a selection of personal, authentic and agreeable accommodation to book during this short stay in the Swiss Midland region.
The idea behind this selection is not to offer an exhaustive listing of the accommodation possibilities in the region (These are available on the tourism website of each canton and cities) but to present hotels and guesthouses you could fall in love with and who stand as beautiful entry doors into a Swiss life experience.
