I've lived in Switzerland. I lived near Zurich, in the canton of Zug. Highly recommend you visit the following Lucerne - a must! -, the town of Zug - in particular, the old town is beautiful but some small and quaint villages outside Zug such as Menzingen and Finstersee which are just idyllic, Zurich, Engleberg.

Any preference where you would like to go?
France is big, there are beaches, mountains, castles, etc.
Or do you mean the area near Switzerland and the black forest?
Anyway, I like Pontresina and La Fouly for the nature.
And if you like it more crowded, Zermatt is always nice.
Like Welly says, Luzern is really nice.

In France Paris will offer you lots of good shots - apart from that the southern region of France is my favourite one, especially the wine regions there.
