We are a part of 5 adults traveling from Lake Como, Italy to Haute-Nendaz, Switzerland, where we will spend a week exploring the area before traveling onward to Milan (Malpensa airport). We have had a look at the costs and itineraries for trains, and have decided renting a car and driving will provide the flexibility we will need in Haute-Nendaz AND appears far more cost effective. We are wondering what size and type of vehicle we will need to rent in order to carry all 5 of us and our luggage AND importantly to not be too challenged by the drive. Is a mini-van, for example, any more challenging to drive when navigating some of those hairpin turns. We'll be travelling in late August, and understand the roads could be crowded - not sure if this will be to our advantage (slower?!) or not (less patient drivers?!)? All thoughts and advice welcome...
