Bauen on Urnersee is very secluded and right on the Swiss Path, accessible by road or boat on Vierwaldstattersee network. Valle Verzasca in Ticino has some lovely villages and nice hikes also, think the last village you can get to before the road runs out is Sonogno.

Have a great weekend wherever you decide.

Not wanting to blow our own trumpets (yeh right) but our village commune (6 villages on the river Necker) has been selected for the Swiss national hiking day beating the likes of Ticino, Luzerne and Glarus .

I love Mürren - in all seasons. Stay at the Hotel Alpenruh - ask for a room with a mountain view...breathtaking. Lots of great hiking trails. Come back to the hotel for a drink on the terrace - incredible view of Eiger and others. When you leave, take a walk down to Gimmelwald and hop on the gondola back down to the Lauterbrunnen valley.

The two areas that I would suggest are around Frutigen/Adelboden or anywhere around Appenzell.
