Villars-sur-Ollons is a very family friendly ski resort in the Swiss Alps and offers free ski pass for children below 9 years. The apartment is centrally located, just 2 mins. walk from the main street (with shops, restaurants and tourist information) and 5 mins walk/ 2 mins by bus to the main lift. A blue pist ends just behind the building so you can ski down in the winter. Just across the street there is a small cosy after-skiing spot. The apartment is charming with sloping ceilings in the living room. Its has a large terrace facing south-west with afternoon/ evening sun. In the basement there is a parking space for the apartment, ski-room and washing room. Despite that fact that the apartment is so centrally located it is very quite. Wireless internet. In summer, the area is a beautiful place to come for hiking. The hiking paths start just 2 mins from the apartment. In addition, the village has a very nice golf course at 1600 m's height with view to Mont Blanc and Dent du Midi.
We are a Danish family with two daughters who have fallen in love with Switzerland and Villars.
In the winter time we come there fore skiing and in the summer time for hiking.
Cathrine Lange purchased this apartment in 2006
We wanted to buy a vacation apartment in Switzerland and a friend of us recommended Villars-sur-Ollons. After having visited the mountain village we were not in doubt - and soon decided to buy our apartment as it so conveniently located to everything.
Spacious ski-in apartment with big sunny balcony, nice views, close to telecabine and shops. The apartment is decorated by the owners with a personal touch and this feels like home, especially the convenient and cosy kitchen.
It’s definitely our favourite apartment compared to previous experiences elsewhere with the same specs. Contact with the owners was pleasant and professional. We like to come back!
The apartment is really nice. It has a beautiful terrace with amazing views. Rooms are specious, with a lot of light, so you feel great while you're there. Everything is handy and smart. One can immediately tell that a very intelligent person built that building :) The location is also great, right in the centre of everything, and yet calm and peaceful. Villars is a beautiful village. We've traveled extensively all around Switzerland for years, have seen dozens and dozens of similar villages, but Villars and the surrounding area makes it in the very top. Excellent choice for your holiday!
The apartment was spacious ,very well equipped ,clean and very comfortable . We were lucky to be able to book from Wed to Wed and the resort was very quiet . Top tips and advice on ski hire and lessons We also liked the complimentary coffee pods and nespresso machine . Also lots of DVDs available too.
The location was convenient and I would recommend using the free bus up and down rather than carrying skiis
The owner is very helpful and responds immediately to any queries
I would recommend to family and friends for winter and summer breaks and may well be back again
Superbly located apartment with a southerly aspect, looking out towards the seven summits of the "Dents du Midi". This apartment is owned by a friendly family and has lots of nice personal touches. It is closely situated between the choice of mountain railway or the cable-car up to the ski resort and there is even an underground car parking space if you bring your own transport. Excellent accommodation for families with younger children up to middle-teens. Villars is a great, year-round, resort which is especially magical when the snow is falling.
L'appartement est super bien situé et très calme. Il est tout près du centre du village et on y arrive en ski. L'intérieur est spacieux et chaleureux. On y reviendra !!!!
