Subject: Vacation Home Rentals
There is an excellent website for vacation home rentals at (Vacation Rentals by Owner)

We are renting a home in Davenport, Florida near Disneyland in April on the recommendation of a fellow employee who used this site last year and was extremely pleased with it. There are pictures of the homes and you can contact the owner directly. In our case, the owner of the home is in England but he has an agent in Florida who looks after the three homes he rents out. The one we are getting has three bedrooms (master with own bath), central air, laundry room, enclosed swimming pool, all linens, dishes, etc. on a residential street and it's practically brand new. We've reserved it for six nights for $470 U.S. The owner requires a $160 U.S. deposit and the balance is payable 40 days prior to the trip. Once you get there a $200 security deposit is required and my friend at work said this took about three weeks to get after he returned home. He was extremely pleased with this experience and highly recommended this particular gentleman in England.

I checked out this site for accommodations in Mexico and they run the gamut so you might find something in Switzerland.
