On March 6, 1966, Paul McCartney and his girlfriend Jane Asher flew to Switzerland for a two-weeks holiday. They rented a chalet in the mountains about half a mile from the town of Klosters.
During their stay, Paul started thinking about the new Beatles album and wrote the song “For No One“.
They flew back to England on March 20, 1966.
I wrote [For No One] on a skiing holiday in Switzerland. In a hired chalet amongst the snow.Paul McCartney – Interview with Playboy Magazine, 1984
I can remember more about writing Revolver than recording it. I was in Switzerland on my first skiing holiday. I’d done a bit of skiing in Help! and quite liked it, so I went back and ended up in a little bathroom in a Swiss chalet writing ‘For No One.’ I remember the character in the song – the girl putting on her make-up.Paul McCartney – From “The Beatles Anthology” book, 2000
Last month. Paul jumped in his Aston and headed towards Central Europe — mainly for some skiing in Switzerland. He thought it would be a good idea to motor, because if he was too easily recognised in one place, he could move on to another town.From The Beatles Monthly Book – April 1966

"With greatly expanded text, this is the most revealing and frank personal 30-year chronicle of the group ever written. Insider Barry Miles covers the Beatles story from childhood to the break-up of the group."
We owe a lot to Barry Miles for the creation of those pages, but you really have to buy this book to get all the details - a day to day chronology of what happened to the four Beatles during the Beatles years!
If we like to think, in all modesty, that the Paul McCartney Project is the best online ressource for everything Paul McCartney, The Beatles Bible is for sure the definitive online site focused on the Beatles. There are obviously some overlap in terms of content between the two sites, but also some major differences in terms of approach.
