Great apartment: well equipped and finished to high standard: my wife and i were with our daughter of 18months and it,was perfect: spacious open kitchen/lounge, wrap around balcony with lots of space and safe for kids, beautiful views from every window! Good shutters kept it cool even thouh it was 30°C outside, 2 bathrooms so also suitable for 2 couples.
Convenient for amenities: bakery, butcher and small supermarket walking distance in chessiere, everything and more in villars, also walkable but a bit too far to carry shopping but very near to drive (easy parking in summer, might be busier in winter?)
Lots to do in the area with kids: alpine zoo in salvan marecotte (much more "natural" hbitat than traditional zoo), lots of little 'alpage' farms to visit especially Chalet de la Croix near Col de La Croix (just about the most idyllic alpine setting you could imagine and amazing cheese), Chateau de chillon, train to La Bretaye, hiking trails all over, no map needed, just set off and explore and enjoy the natural beauty in the company of the cows and sheep and goats!
I am so glad you enjoyed the apartment and your holiday in Villars. Its good that you appreciated the flexibility of the apartment for families, adults, 2 couples etc and the range of local amenities, and that it suited your own family. You are most welcome to return again in the future.

"Fantastic apartment with amazing views"
We stayed at Domaine de l'Alpage during the Easter holidays as a family of 4. The apartment was modern with a very homely feeling to it. The views were amazing of the mountains and the valley below. The location was great for our kids because the play area was only a 5 minute walk away. The jacuzzi and sauna were great after a full day skiing ,it was really relaxing.

"Excellent standard of accommodation in great location."
This apartment is of an excellent standard and has a huge wrap around balcony with wonderful views. The overall development is also clearly well maintained by its owners and has very good facilities. We particularly enjoyed the use of the common jacuzzi after a day ski-ing! The apartment itself is spotless, well equipped and spacious. We did not have a car with us but the free resort bus service is only 5mins walk away and works well. We were particularly impressed with how well organised all the arrangements were. Both the owner and the local contact were very attentive and helped everything run smoothly. We would definitely return to this apartment.
I am thrilled that you and your family enjoyed the apartment and your skiing holiday in Villars, and that all the facilities and arrangements worked as intended. You would be most welcome to return again at any time of the year.

"Beutifully set comfortable, modern swiss chalet apartment"
Our family of 4 spent a very pleasant New Year holiday in this comfortable and modern apartment nestled in the Swiss Alps just off the Rhone Valley upstream from the Lake of Geneva which has the most breath-taking views from its huge French windows and balconies. The Chalet is situated 5 minutes from the "ski bus" stop but is actually reachable by foot in about 20 minutes from the gondola station (where skis and boots can be kept overnight) and two village centres of Chesieres and Villars. It is also a 20 minute drive to the big shopping centres in the valley as well as the main railway line. All comforts and mod-cons are catered for (perhaps with the exception of a microwave which would have been useful). The TV received Freesat (and hence BBC1,2,ITV, etc.) and the chalet includes an underground garage space. There is access to a communal "spa" with Jacuzzi and sauna to relax those aching après-ski muscles. Our modest skiing needs only required a fraction of the large range of slopes and lifts, extending to a 3000m glacier and the large resort of Les Diablerets. We would have no hesitation in returning there and perhaps savouring the delightful walks that must be accessible in the summer season.
I am so glad that you and your family enjoyed your New Year holiday at the chalet apartment and enjoyed the village and surrounding area and skiing too. Thank you for your comments - I will install a microwave oven next time I visit the apartment myself.

I am thrilled that you and your family enjoyed your holiday in Villars, Switzerland so much, and that my apartment played its part as much as I hoped it would. You would be most welcome to visit Domaine de l'Alpage again at any time of the year.
