Overview

About the property

Ski Chalet in Villars-sur-Ollon, Lake Geneva/Vaud, Switzerland - Within Walking Distance of Village though it is preferable to have a car

A substantial apartment of 130m situated within the exclusive Domaine de la Residence. The apartment has been recently refurbished to a high standard with a modern kitchen, wooden floors and a home cinema. Ideal for skiing and excellent for hiking etc in the spring and summer. Villars is truly a dual season resort. There are excellent summer facilities in Villars and surrounding areas including lake Geneva.

About jonathan rose

We are a professional family, a barrister and a headhunter from London with 2 children.

jonathan rose purchased this apartment in 2007

Why jonathan rose chose Switzerland

Villars is really easy to get to - 2 trains per hour from Geneva airport to Aigle then a taxi up the mountain. Excellent in winter and summer.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a beautiful apartment well equipped with stunning views. Far from being a rental apartment it is our families second home but regrettably we cant use it as much as we would like! You can ski in and out avoiding the lift queue and the train. There is a great range of skiing both for beginners and advanced skiers. There are wide pisted slopes and an excellent range of off piste runs for those who want to be more daring. At Diableret it is possible to ski off piste from the Glacier, though a guide is recommended. Within an hour you can drive around to to Verbier or Gstaad. In the summer the resort is really popular, you can hire bikes, swim, hike, para glide, white water rafting or sail on the lake in the wonderful clean air.

Great apartment, two bunk rooms, one very small,spectacular views and an excellent skiing base had the snow been better.Not ski in / out but nearly so.Definitely need a car to access the village.Villars seemed expensive in comparison to other Swiss towns.The countryside around is beautiful.The owners very helpful

Owner's Response: Strictly speaking I suppose it's accurate to say not ski in ski out - it does take 2 mins 20 seconds from leaving the chalet to putting your skis on, a littler longer getting back !

Superb home away from home, in the mountains...

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this stunning apartment. Absolutely every care has been taken to make this a superb home away from home in the mountains. Even the now appeared on cue!

The apartment is large and with three bath/shower rooms perfect or either a large family, group of friends or even two couples who like the space to spread out!

The chalet apartment is wonderfully well equipped, with everything one might possibly need. The sonos,digital projector, screen and subscription to Netflix a great addition to the books, games and DVDs available.

We love the location. A short walk to the slopes from which it is an easy ski down to the Roc d'Orsay telecabin, with wonderful views.

The rental, apartment information and customer service is clear and well organised, and the owner responsive to any questions which might arise.

We shall definitely visit again, although we might try a different time of year to make the most of the local walks and the fantastic balcony. We enjoyed the small mountain restaurant at La Verneyre.

Highly recommended...
