Overview

About the property

Large luxurious modern chalet- fully refurbished, great view

Ma Retraite is a fully refurbished traditional chalet, set in its own grounds in a very convenient central location. Opposite mini-market, butcher, bakery and restaurant. Beautifully furnished bright and spacious. Perfect for two families enjoying a ski holiday or exploring the region in summer. Large enclosed backyard. WiFi access in chalet.

Sleeps 8 comfortably. 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms. Open plan kitchen, dining, living areas. Second lounge with TV, DVD and playstation. One minute walk to free shuttle bus for ski lifts. Great views over the Rhone Valley and the French Alps. Balconies on both levels. Parking in chalet drive. Central heating, Bluewin TV, log stove, laundry facilities in basement.

Ideal for both winter and summer rental. With 225km of ski runs, ski schools, cross-country skiing, snow shoeing and a snow garden for children to learn to ski. There are 300km of hiking paths and 120km of mountain bike trails. Also a high altitude 18 hole Golf course at 1600m.

The Village: This is a traditional, un-spoilt area of Swizerland located on a sunny shelf in the Alpes Vaudoise which enjoys a full southerly aspect with plenty of sun all day long and superb views of the Dents du Midi range and Mont Blanc.

You won't find concrete high rises, bleak 'purpose built' resort accommodation or the catered chalet package holiday crowd. What you will find are authentic chalets ecclectically arranged on the hillsides, friendly affordable restaurants and a warm, mountain style welcome. If you are looking for a lively night out then there are a couple of trendy bars and clubs in the village.

Skiing: The ski areas are reached either by one of the two cable cars (Barboulouse or Roc d'Orsay) or via a rack and pinion mountain train up to the Col de Bretaye, both afford spectacular views in both Winter and Summer.

There are a number of ski / snowboard schools which have a high standard of instruction and smaller classes than you might otherwise expect. Ecole de Ski Villars is the official ski and snowboard school since 1974. The Villars Swiss Ski and Snowboard School has more than 100 certified ski and snowboard instructors.

For children and beginners there is a nursery lift in the village.

Activities: Skiing

Villars Gryon, excluding the Les Diablerets Glacier, has 100 km of marked ski runs. At an altitude of 1200m - 2120m there is a perfect blend of runs to suit all tastes. Including the Les Diablerets Glacier there is 220 km of marked ski runs up to 3000m.

HIking

There are 25 km of cleared paths for walking and snowshoeing. Non-skiers can enjoy a beautiful walk in the sunshine around the lake of Bretaye at 1800 metres.

Golf

The Villars 18 hole golf course boasts breathtaking views over the Dents du Midi mountain range. In the winter this course forms part of the ski piste.

Kids Adventure

There is an adventure park at Aigle (Parc Aventure) and and for adults and children the aqua parc at Le Bouveret is open all year round and is just a 25 minute drive.

Biking

Trails covering over 120km of challenging forest area.

There is also an artificial ice rink, indoor swimming pool, indoor tennis, squash, fitness centre and bowling alley.
