The Swiss Alps region
Nestled in the alps, Villars, in Switzerland, is an exclusive but discreet, family orientated dual season mountain resort, perched upon a sunny south facing plateau above the Rhone valley, facing the Mont-Blanc peaks, at 1'300 m altitude (4'265 ft), close to Montreux. It is approximately 75 minutes from Geneva by motorway and a regular train service connects Geneva airport to Bex and Aigle nearby. Villars is a secluded and relaxing swiss mountain retreat which remains within easy reach of the rest of the world.
Villars is also very popular with families (one of 15 resorts to be awarded the "Families Welcome" award) and young people,
In winter, Villars’ 75 ski-lifts connect 220 km 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 years benefit from free ski passes.

Crans Montan, Saas Fee and Zermatt are further afield but all skiable on a day’s excursion.
