3-4 days hike (inn to inn or village to village) in Switzerland

We're taking a two week trip to Europe in early June. For the first part we'd like to do a 3 to 4 day hike from inn to inn or village to village in Switzerland. Nothing too strenuous! From what I understand "easy" to the Swiss is "medium" to Americans. So I'd like to stick with easy!

Any suggestions? It wouldn't have to be a loop if we can take a local train or bus back to our starting point. I was thinking something near Zurich, Bern or Geneva so we can fly back to Paris (or take a train). Ideally, we'd take a couple days to rest before heading to Paris, but I'm not sure if there is a lot to see in Zurich (not familiar with it).

Thanks in advance!

This book should be helpful: 100 Hut Walks in the Alps. I haven't done one of these, just day-long hikes returning to the same base each day. However, I have the book and think it is what you're looking for.
