About the Owner
I enjoy traveling, and discovering beautiful places. The outdoors is where I like to spend my time. Barboleuse and its surroundings offer the opportunity to relax in the beauty at the doorstep, or get out and explore the local area and its culture. Both in the nearby mountains and by the great Swiss train system, go to many other cities and lac areas. Come on over...and share this area of the world.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Six days of snow snow snow! And for a finale to a great week our first blue sky today! It has all been an unexpected pleasure and very homely! We hope to return again soon. Peter, Geneva Feb 09.
All our family had a wonderful time in your lovely house. We really enjoyed the Christmas tree, the window decorations, the candles, the fire place, it was wonderful. We have to say it was very convenient to have the telecabine so close. Weeden Family, Spain and USA, New Year 09.
Thanks for a wonderful time in your lovely apartment. It was our lucky day when we decided to break our journey in the Villars area and found Le Gramon. Comfortable, cosy, well-equipped and perfect for those without a car- and what a view! Hope to return soon for a longer stay Ian and Maggie Sept. 09.
‘We both had a great time thanks, the piste's were the quietest we have ever been on. Your flat was in a great spot for the lifts etc and was very well fitted out and was very comfortable. Matthew.

Super convenient apartment!
Had a great stay in this lovely cosy apartment with a perfect location - we could walk to restaurants / shops and the telecabine so no need to hire car! The garden was a plus - our children loved playing in the telecabine and the boot room in the basement was super handy for storing our skis etc. We may well return next year!
From the Owner
“I had always looked at apartments in the Alps. Chamonix, but never committed, thankfully. Then I had the opportunity to work in Villars and in my hunt for somewhere to rent/live I discovered this 'little corner of paradise'. Still knowing little about the process to buy I started slowly finding out and finally it was mine. What a great decision, I only lived in it for one year, but I love every season, there is so much to do in the local area I never wanted to go down Teh Valley. My work has now taken me to Geneva, so I cannot live here all the time. I still return as much as possible in every season and it is a big pleasure to allow others the opportunity to discover the delights from the south facing terrace and garden and beyond to the mountains and buvettes. Enjoy.”
Activity and Interests
Several lakes are within driving distance, the largest being Lake Geneva, with many beaches and beautiful lakeside towns. Also the Rhone river in the valley 20 mins below provides an excellent system of flat cycle ways.
Geneva International airport is just 1¼ hour by car. There is excellent public transport both to get here and during your stay. The train form Geneva will take 2hrs 10mins, and leaves you a 5 min stroll from the apartment. With or without a car, it is easy to travel to and from and around!
The apartment is 20 mins from the valley, either Monthey or Aigle or Bex. The apartment is in the village of Barboleuse, 3km from Villars and 2km from Gryon.
You will find all you need to enjoy a fantastic holiday. Swimming pool, ice-rink, massage, and much more... come and find out.
A short weekend getaway—the chalet was just perfect for a young family. We will be sure to let friends know of your lovely cozy place! The Andeners, Jan 09

Thanks for providing a great and homely place to stay. The garden was a real treat for the kids. The location and view here is fantastic!, we can almost feel how cozy it would be in winter…..for this trip you could not beat Glacier 3000, many trips up and down the cable car, and the rocky river bed!!......Stephanie and Chris Aug 09
We have had a great time! Kids loved the little train, mini-golf, cable cars, Glacier 3000, Rocky River, goats and cows at Solalex. Back one day we hope, a shame it is so far from Sydney!….. Leanfores, Oct 09
This has been a perfect place for us all to stay. Your chalet couldn’t have been any better and what a beautiful location! The mountains have been spectacular under pure blue skies, a longer visit next time…. Alison and John, New Brunswick, Aug 09
What a wonderful chalet you have! Perfectly equipped and organized and we had a super mix of sun, rain, hail and more sun! It’s been a fantastic holiday, and we enjoyed the walks

From the Owner
“Firstly, the apartment is located in the perfect place. It has easy access by train and car, therefore the journey to and from is stress and hassle free. It's great to have a car at times, its great to only use local transport and a bike, or pair of skis. You have the choice! Secondly, it is quiet and off the beaten track, yet the village is just a 5 min walk, the telecabine just 1 min walk, or you can chill in the garden and see no-one, almost! Thirdly, inside is just the perfect set-up to be cosy for 2, perfect for a family and I have been able to entertain many friends with its well designed kitchen and open plan living room/dining. Come and see for yourselves biking, hiking, skiing, chilling, dining, it's all here. Read the comments from past and happy guests.”
