The chalet is a historically significant building in the village which has been recently renovated to very high standards and all modern specifications. It now offers the best of old world chalet charm as well as modern design in the different parts of the building respectively. The highlight of the chalet is probably its magnificent living room with two fireplaces, beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. The chalet is divided into two parts: an apartment on the lower ground floor with its own kitchen, living room with fireplace and sauna, able to accommodate up to six people and the older original part of the chalet on the three floors above it with several living rooms, fireplaces and dining rooms, study and TV room, providing generous living/entertaining space even for larger parties and accommodating up to six people. As a whole the chalet is ideal for a large family gathering or maybe for a two family holiday as its generous proportions provide plenty of privacy to its occupants. Depending on availability, it may also be possible to rent just one part of the chalet. Please contact the owner for rates.

The chalet is conveniently located only a few metres from baker, butcher and little supermarket in the village. This central location also ensures easy access even in mid winter. However, it is surrounded by a generous garden lending it privacy. In the summer visitors can enjoy magnificent views from its beautiful terrace (with gas barbecue) as well as a generous flat garden area ideally suited for children's outdoor play.

Villars is a beautiful and family friendly mountain resort within easy access from Geneva airport by car or train. It offers great skiing in winter and beautiful walks, climbs and golf in summer.

About this location

The Vaud region

Villars sur Ollon is an exclusive but discreet, family orientated dual season resort perched upon a sunny south facing plateau above the Rhone valley near Montreux. It is approx 75 minutes from Geneva by motorway and a regular train service connects Geneva airport to Bex or Aigle nearby. Villars is a secluded and relaxing mountain retreat which remains within easy reach of the rest of the world.


In winter, 75 ski lifts connect 220km of slopes and a chairlift connection to the neighbouring resort of 'Les Diablerets' enables year-round skiing on the glacier at 3,000m. Sledging, ice-skating, Nordic skiing and snowshoe walking provide skiers and non-skiers with endless possibilities. Two respected ski schools provide expert tuition and children under 9 benefit from free ski passes. For those who like to ski in a different resort everyday, Verbier is 40 mins away, Chamonix 1h 15mins, Les Portes du Soleil (Champery, Avoriaz & Morzine) 40 mins and Gstaad 1h. Crans Montana, Saas Fee and Zermatt are further afield but not too far.

In summer, Villars' 300km of pedestrian paths are an invitation to go for a walk or a hike through the pine woods and wild flower meadows to lakes and small alpine villages. You can also practise many different sports such as golf, tennis, swimming, rock-climbing, horse riding, mountain biking or paragliding.

"Beautiful house in a beautiful location"

We arrived on a bright summers day having taking the train from Geneva to Lausanne, then the coach from Lausanne to Villars. It was a simple journey, with not too lot to wait at each stop (although beware if you're travelling/arriving late as the buses up to Villars stop running quite early on certain days). We arrive to be greeted by this beautifully restored wooden chalet. They layout means that there could be three groups of varying sizes staying the the chalet without interfering with each other, but we were just there ourselves. It is very neat and modern, with all the expected amenities. The garden is lovely, especially to eat outside in. Villars is an interesting place in that it is so small yet there is so much to do! This ranges from hiking in the mountainside, following an exercise trail through the forest, to taking cable cars up to lakes, short drives to golf courses and national parks and an ice skating rink within walking distance. Would strongly recommend, had a delightful experience with no problems with key hand over etc.
