Why Lee Wallis chose Switzerland

I had holidayed many times in Villars and always loved it so when the oppurtunity to purchase my own property came up,I jumped at it.

It has a wonderful view and is so peaceful and relaxing,and is also so close to all the action on both the slopes and in the town.

I hope you get to experience the same exhilaration I get when you come to busy..if there is anything I can do to help,please get in contact.

Lovely apartment, ideal skiing location

  • 5 of 5

Most impressed with this apartment. Tram station outside the door (almost), but we used car to get to skiing. Very clean & warm, comfy beds and optional sofa bed. Lovely evening views from the balcony. Would visit again if in the area! Only improvement - WiFi please

Very comfortable apartment with a wonderful view!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very well maintained and really comfortable. 2 lovely bedrooms with comfortable beds. Decorated tastefully with a very homely feel. The view from the balcony is stunning and peaceful. Barboleuse is just a few minutes walk away with shops restaurants and play areas although you can also take the tram which runs from opposite the apartment.

We contacted the owner several times for information prior to our visit and nothing was too much trouble.

We all had a wonderful time in Gryon and would not hesitate to book the apartment again

A great Easter break on the slopes!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a lovely week at this apartment over the Easter holidays. It was ideally situated right next to the tram stop and a short stoll from Barboleuse. Villars / Gryon is a resort well known to us and the skiing this Easter was fabulous. The kids had a great time in lessons and are already asking when they can return! The apartment had everything we needed and the view from the balcony was stunning. Wouldn't hesistate to recommend if you are looking for a great base to ski from but also feel like you are getting away from it all for a few days!

Very comfortable flat with beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

The flat is well furnished with comfortable beds, good quality bed linen and plenty of towels. The bathrooms are modern, the kitchen well equipped and the lounge is comfortable. The view from the balcony is amazing. It is very clean and well maintained.

The flat is located in a quiet area just opposite the train stop which goes into Villars (approx. 10 - 15 mins). However, the trains only run once an hour. It is a short 10 minute walk into Barboleuse where there are a couple of restaurants and a small grocery shop. The people at the office de tourisme are very helpful in giving useful tips for the region.

The skiing is excellent with Villars, Gryon and Les Diablerets all linked together. Everyone we encountered was very friendly. One big plus is that kids under the age of 9 ski free of charge.

We had a great stay and would recommend this flat.

Just what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

What a great apartment, just what we were looking for. Clean, well equipped, warm and finished to a high standard. Lovely views over the valley from the large balcony. Located just by the tram stop, although as we had a car we didn't need to take advantage of that convenient little feature. A short drive to the tele-cabin, straight past the most incredible bakery, ideal for picking a little something up to take to the pistes. If we go back to Villars, we will definitely stay here again.
