Few places beg self indulgence quite as much as Switzerland, one of these enviably smart, tidy, well turned out girls with a great sense of organisation, impeccable manners, four languages and charisma by the bucket load. Not that you’ll find cause to complain as you roam Switzerland’s picture postcard castles and villages, pause for a schnapps or hot chocolate in a chalet strewn with geranium boxes, ride a little red mountain train between pine wood and glacial peak or glide silently on skis around the pyramid shaped Matterhorn. Switzerland is a country that really has it all linguistic dexterity, cultural diversity, mountain vistas, heavenly chocolate and natural landscapes so extraordinarily magnificent even the get gods gets Goosebumps. Go on spoil yourself.
