With an ethereal beauty and emotional complexity, the French actress Eva Green, who first wowed film audiences with her sensuous performance in Bernardo's Bertolucci's "The Dreamers" and then being the 'Bond girl', took a break in the snow-capped mountains of Switzerland with her mother, Marlene Jobert, early in February this year. She was seen at a ski-resort waiting for her turn to ski down the slopes. The mother-daughter couple spent some quality time, relaxing and enjoying the beautiful country together.
Location: The small European nation of Switzerland is located towards the western part of the continent between France on the west, Austria to the east, Italy to the south and Germany to the north.
Accommodation: The Swiss economy thrives on tourism and therefore you will find hotels and lodges from the most economical to the most luxurious in the country. Choose a smaller town for accommodation for a good deal.
Main Attractions: Without a doubt it's the natural glory and splendor of Switzerland that makes it an unforgettable tourist destination. One of the best way to view the colors of mother nature would be to travel via the Swiss historic trains - Glacier express, Rhaetian rail, Wilhelm Tell express to name a few.
The Swiss Alps are world famous and are an open invitation to any healthy, adventurous person. The countryside is speckled with sparkling lakes and hundreds of resorts have cropped up nearby these lakes and on mountain tops.
From a historical perspective, there are many places of interest, including the Chillon castle, Benedictie Convent of St.John, Abbey church, Guarda village, Gruyeres and ViaSpluga to name a few. There are also many museums to visit such as the straw museum and history museum. But all said and done, Swiss beauty lies in its infinite mountainous beauty which is beyond all comparison.
