"Absolutely fabulous, highly recommended."
A lovely 2 bedroom ground floor apartment in a quiet location close to the village of Villars with it's excellent facilities including shops, restaurants, tourist office, train/tram station. Loads to do locally: cable cars and trains into the mountains, car and tram access to picturesque local villages. Also very well placed for access to Lake Geneva, Lausanne, Gruyere, Evian, the St. Bernard Pass (all less than 90 minutes drive away).
The apartment is extremely comfortable and very well equipped. The master bedroom includes an ensuite bath/shower room and has access to a patio area and the communal garden beyond. The second bedroom has bunk beds and a truckle bed and the second shower room is close by. The living area comprises a small, but entirely adequate kitchen (we did quite a lot of self catering), and a combined living/dining space with TV, music system, etc. and provides access to the front patio. The apartment is double-glazed and well insulated and so is quiet and very cosy!
Secure parking is found in the underground car park from which an indoor staircase leads to the apartment itself. Washing and tumble-drying facilities are in a communal room at car park level below the apartment (2CHF per wash or tumble).
Wi-fi access would have been a bonus but other than this the apartment lacks nothing of consequence.
