About Ann

We are a couple originally from Scandinavia. We love the mountains and especially Villars and all it has to offer both in winter and summer.

We live in the Zurich area but visit Villars as frequently as we can, taking the opportunity to go skiing and snow-shoeing in the winter and hiking/mountain biking in the summer and autumn. We know the area and its surroundings very well (lived in Lausanne for several years) and would be glad to provide any advice that may help with your visit.

Well situated chalet for a perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

Thank you both for another delightful stay at Armorial 2, this chalet apartment is very clean and well equipped, and makes a perfect base for summer hiking. The two large balconies are perfect for a most relaxing place to rest after a strenuous walk, and the views are simply breath-taking. We cannot wait to go back, best regards, Keith and Mary

The apartment was very clean and fully equipped. We found the unit to be cosy and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Ann was very pleasant to work with and accommodating. A very accurate description of the property is listed. We enjoyed the peace and quiet as well as the spectacular views of the mountains. It was very nice to receive transportation and an activity card after paying the daily city tax. All of our needs were met during the beautiful weather as well as the couple of days of rain. We would most definitely return to this apartment chalet. Thank you Ann and Dan

Owner's Response: Dear Sue and Glenn, We are pleased to hear that you liked the apartment and that you took advantage of the activity card. Villars is going through a very positive transformation and next time you visit, you should be able to take advantage of, among other things, the public swimming pool that is currently being refurbished and is due to open in December 2016. It consists of an indoor/outdoor pool and a new wellness and spa area. We hope to welcome you back soon. Ann and Dan

A perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant vacation in your lovely apartment at Armorial II. Fully equipped kitchen, cosy livingroom and with a seperate bedroom.

The bathroom, newly renovated, with a bathtub and a towel dryer made a very fresh and inviting impression.

After a long day hiking in the surrondings of Villars, we enjoyed sitting on one of the two balconies with a glass of wine admiring the astonishing views, just relaxing. The owner´s gave us all the information we needed for our stay.

We will be happy to return to your lovely apartment in a near future.

Best regards

Kristina and Stefan

Delightful apartment

  • 5 of 5

Dear Ann and Dan, A most delightful chalet-style apartment, nicely furnished and very comfortable for a couple, fully equipped, and very clean. The view from the balconies is absolutely amazing. Lots of good summer hikes locally, some directly from the apartment with no need to use the car. The mid-stay cleaning and change of linen is highly recommended for a longer stay, a very fast and thorough team. We certainly hope to return to Armorial ll.

A big thank you to the owners.

Keith and Mary

Owner's Response: Dear Keith and Mary, Thank you for your kind words. So pleased that you enjoyed the apartment and your stay. It is very pleasing to know that you enjoyed the view of les dents du midi and the impressive Mont Blanc massif as much as we do. We also think the interim cleaning for longer stays enhances the comfort of the stay for the guests. We look forward to welcoming you again, Ann and Dan
