The house was a great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Kandi, lynda, Sis and I had a very enjoyable vacation in Switzerland and this house was perfect for our home away from home. We used it as home base as we Day tripped all over Switzerland with visits into France and Germany. It's spacious, very clean, comfortable and quiet. Bonnie goss

A quiet place to enjoy nature in northern Switzerland

  • 5 of 5

This spacious apartment was exactly what we were looking for. Located in a small village on the Rhine, it was a convenient location to cycle along the Rhine and to enjoy the countryside, both on the Swiss and German sides of the river. The hosts, Monica and Behrouz were helpful in telling us about the area and making recommendations for food in nearby Bad Zurzach. Rekingen is easy to reach from Zurich by train if one does not rent a car.

Delightful stay, wonderful owners.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Switzerland was all the more delightful thanks to our stay here in Rekingen. Monica was always very friendly and accommodating and ensured we had nothing to worry about whilst we were there. The apartment was spotlessly clean and very spacious, our one year old had great fun exploring whenever he got the chance! Thank you Monica for your hospitality, I'm sure we'll meet again.

Great size

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about the place and family that owns it. Warm and welcoming. True 5 star



Great swimming pools

20 min from Zurich

Large rooms

Great kitchen

Close to food shopping


You'll need a car

Shower head is a little low for tall people

If you're sensitive to cigaret smoke, they do smoke. But it wasn't a real problem for us.

So, if the con's aren't a problem this place is fantastic. Price is reasonable and easily handles us 5.

Large and comfortable appartement

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this appartement for almost 7 weeks. Our daughter age of 15 years did get treatment in Villigen. The place felt like home and was a very cosy place to stay. Enough space for every familymember. The property is clean and very well maintained and a full equipted kitchen. We loved the fireplace. Also the owners are very friendly and sympatic. The lakes in Switserland are very beautifull and the mountains also. The people we met in Switserland are also very friendly. The dialect is difficult for us to understand but most of the people and espescially the owners speak English very well. We sure would recommend this appartement to friends or relatives. We keep very good memories of the time there.

Great apartment..don't pass this one up

  • 4 of 5

We loved this apt! Entire 2nd floor of house. Very private. Driveway for car, access to washer and dryer, wireless internet. It was bright and spacious, homey and comfortable and the owners are fantastic. We agree with other reviews, they were so friendly and accommodating. Summer means open windows which meant early morning traffic just an awareness for light/late sleepers. Shopping and thermal baths minutes away in Bad Zurzach. Lots to see in this area - Basel, Zurich, Rhine Falls, Stein am Rhein. We loved our stay in Rekingen. Thanks Monica and Barous! We will definitely recommend this apt.

Rekingen, a little neighbour village from Bad Zurzach is situated straight on the Rhine, just across the border with Germany. From here you can visit a lot of places very easily, either by train or car, like Baden, Zurich, Winterthur, Basel or Waldshut. Or would you like to go for a bike tour starting in front of the house ? Go walking in the forest, along the Rhine, in summer have a swim in the Rhine, observe nature ? Play tennis, relax in the thermal bathes, have a training at the SPA Fitness. Far away from the daily stress and the daily live.

Other Activities: Thermal baths, wellness and fitness

Golf: The nearest golf course is situated in Bad Schinznach, approx 20 km., another in Stühlingen (Germany) approx. 30 km.
