Re: The Great Escape

I can fully understand and feel the same. Also have holidays left from last year. I opted to staying in Switzerland because, like you, I won't fly at the moment.

So I share some of my favorite places in Switzerland. Not all of them might be ideal for now but have a look.

If you head south to Ticino I can recommend two hotels.
My favorite one is in Brissago, directly at the lake.
Small, family run but only a "Garni" meaning there is no restaurant for lunch an d dinner. They have a fridge and several restaurant within walking distance. I am sure some will do take away. You can eat in the breakfast room. Breakfast is lovely. And the owners are very friendly. I go there at least once a year.

The other one is in Locarno. Picolo Hotel. Also really nice breakfast and very friendly owners.

Both will give you a Ticino Ticket to explore the area with busses and train for free.

Another hotel I can fully recommend is Auberge d'Ajoie closer to you, in Porrentruy
Very nice breakfast. (Yes, there is a pattern ;-) )
They also have a room with a kitchen (Suite).
The hotel is very close to the center and the city of Porrentruy is lovely. Also there is a brilliant chocolaterie close by Nora Mario

Another great place is the Berghotel Mettmen.
Unfortunately they are closed at the moment because the road is blocked.
The food is great
