jonathan rose purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why jonathan rose chose Villars-sur-Ollon
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.

One week in Villars
Great property that did not disappoint! Location is a good walk from the town, so a car is a must, but parking is easy, so no issues.
Very close to ski piste great view!
Johnathans place was spacious, having been to Villars for many years and renting many properties I found his place, clean, well equipped, easy to use and check in well informed. It’s a 2 minute walk to put skis on and a 3 minute walk home up the same track. The apartment is well looked after, modern set up, believe me I have stayed in many before. Johnathan is contactable easily during your stay. I can only give it 5 stars!!! Will return again if possible.
Beautiful place and stunning views!!
Well stocked beautiful place for families!! Owner very responsive! Quite a drive up the mountain!
Beautiful home in a beautiful location
We had a wonderful stay in this lovely chalet in Villars. The home was exceptionally clean and beautifully furnished. With all the beds and bathrooms, we had plenty of room for our seven family members. We had fun watching a movie using the projector and amazing surround sound audio. The owner was always prompt in answering our questions and was very helpful. The chalet has incredible views and is located in such a beautiful little mountain village. Since we were there in the summer, we took advantage of the train and gondola rides that were free after paying the tourist tax. (Just a note, the tourist tax office has moved and is now in the same building as the train station and post office.) We loved our time in this chalet and would highly recommend it!
Lovely apartment in lovely position
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
Thank you for your review. It is a 2 and a half minute walk from the chalet's ski room to skis-on. The village is a 10-15 minute walk with some restaurants even closer. A car might be helpful if you wish to further explore. Pleased you enjoyed your stay.
Superb home away from home, in the mountains...
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.
Lake Geneva is about a 30 minute drive away and has "beach" facilities, lake trips and an Aquaparc. The beautiful town of Montreux is about a 35 minute drive.
Geneva 1 hour 15 mins by car or 1 hour 20 on the train to Aigle, then a 20 minute taxi ride. It is also possible to access Villars on the mountain train from Bex, or there is a bus from Aigle to Villars. There is outside parking available at the Chalet.
15 minute walk to Villars town centre (up hill on the way back!) or a 2 minute drive. Lake Geneva and Montreux within a 35 minute drive.
