“What a beautiful country !!! Kristina\'s family gave us the opportunity to visit their homeland. To start with, the family is very nice. They have taken great care of our house and cat. Through out the year, Kristina helped us plan our trip in Switzerland. They also made us feel comfortable at their house from the very start. Going from having her very nice mother pick us up at the airport to supplying us with a very detailed book with all the instructions. The house was very spacious and bright. The view is awesome! And the patio is to die for. We also were very well situated to visit the region. Very easy access to highways which will get you to Zurich, Luzern... to name a few. There is a lot to do in the surroundings and 2 weeks was not enough. Plenty of hiking, swimming, biking to do. Alps are very close. The little village which can reached within minutes walking, has all necessities (grocery, bank, bakery). I highly recommend a swap with Kristina\'s family. It was a great experience for us !!! Thank you again and again Kristina, Joel, Muriel and Jurg for letting us into your house :)”

Where is it?
Our home is ideally located as a touring base, Zurich is 40 mins from Benken by car or by train from our local station http://www.zuerichsee.ch/en/page.cfm/sightsrz/orte/1810. In the surrounding mountains you'll find lots of opportunities for hiking and winter sports. As Switzerland is so small and travelling around by train or car is easy you can get just about anywhere quite fast. Rapperswil is the next town to our village and is about a 20 minutes drive by car or train http://www.zuerichsee.ch/en/welcome.cfm. In summer our area is ideal for outdoor sports like cycling, roller blading as the area between the two lakes "Walensee" http://www.heidiland.com/en/page.cfm/accommodation-packages/regions/region-walensee and Lake of Zurich is flat and offers lots of rural roads with hardly any traffic. In winter several skiing resorts are easily reached by car within 30 mins. Big resorts like Davos or Klosters can be reached in 11/2 hrs.
