The servers are physically located in Switzerland in a datacentre offering all the usual guarantees including everything from strict access control to video surveillance.

Information on tracking technologies

When you use online booking services, cookies and other tracking technologies are used in different ways. They allow this solution to operate and analyse traffic.

Different cookies are used for different reasons. They fall under two categories.

Functional cookies. They help identify you as a unique user when browsing several pages of this solution. The first two cookies are used for this purpose; namely, to save a unique session identifier for your reservation and transfer your search criteria from one page to another. If you choose to reject these cookies, you may not use this solution. But since you wish to book this wonderful property, that would be unfortunate, wouldn't it?

Tracking cookies. Although they may seem unnecessary, tracking cookies are actually quite useful in analysing how this solution is used, from which countries, using which browsers, on which operating system, etc. It is for this purpose we use Google Analytics, which asks you to accept the installation of tracking cookies to properly operate. You have the right to reject them without such decision affecting your booking. However, you would then be depriving us of valuable information on the use of this solution.

If you'd like to know more about the use of cookies and how you may manage or erase them, go to the website allaboutcookies.org and read the help section corresponding to your browser. The settings for browsers like Internet Explorer, Edge, Safari, Firefox and Chrome allow you to choose which cookies you accept and which you reject. The place where these settings may be found depends on the browser used. If you do not know where they are, please use the "Help" function.
