Bed and Breakfast Switzerland: The Guide With the Best Addresses for 2012
VILLARS-SUR-GLANE, Switzerland, May 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The number of private accommodations offered in Switzerland is showing a spectacular annual increase of 20%. The new guide presents more than 1000 accommodations. It is an ideal travelling companion for the discovery of a region, its culture and traditions, by lodging in a welcoming place.
Private home, mountain chalet, manor house: to lodge privately allows discovering extraordinary places. Carefully looked after by their hosts, guests can live an authentic experience, far away from mass tourism and the classic round trips.
The new guide Â«Bed and Breakfast Switzerland 2012Â» includes all useful information about the guest rooms in Switzerland. As an essential travel companion it allows to quickly find an accommodation according to numerous criteria and meeting spontaneous requirements. With maps, photos and descriptions in four languages, this edition presents 1024 addresses of which 189 are newly registered accommodations. Each address shows an evaluation between one and five stars which allows the traveller a selection of his preferred accommodation standard.
In Switzerland, the private accommodation sector shows an enormous success. The amount of registered guest rooms has multiplied by five during the last 10 years. The number of guests is continuously increasing as well. In 2011 the increase reached approximately 9%, after a leap of almost 10% in 2010.
These results exceed all expectations of Bed and Breakfast Switzerland, considering the fact that the number of overnight stays in the hotel business is currently decreasing. The key values of the private accommodation - hospitality, community, authenticity - satisfy a basic trend: the customer is looking for an original and unique experience, different from standard holidays, at a reasonable price. First of all, this is the case for the Swiss who make up almost half (46.8%) of the guests staying in a Swiss Bed and Breakfast in 2011.
Where is the guide Bed and Breakfast Switzerland 2012 available?
With texts in German, French, Italian and English, the guide Bed and Breakfast Switzerland 2012 is sold at a price of 28 CHF in Switzerland and Germany. It is available in post offices, bookstores, on the site http://www.bnb.ch and in the registered Bed and Breakfast accommodations.
