Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Our three bedroomed apartment sits just above the centre of the charming traditional village of Gryon, ideally situated for those seeking a quiet retreat or a more active holiday. Whether you want to sit on the terrace and wonder at the view whilst absorbing the tranquillity or walk, hike, mountain bike or ski the mountains, this is the place for you.
This newly created home was once part of a hotel, and has been furnished and equipped to a high standard, giving guests modern convenience in an old setting. The apartment is light and airy, with views from every window, and a log stove to warm in front of after an invigorating day in the mountain air.
Croissants for breakfast or provisions can be bought from the village shops (small supermarket, laiterie, butchers) just a few minutes walk away. There are also two restaurants serving local food and wines.
Walks, hiking and mountain biking are straight from the door, skiing is just over 2km away at the Barboleusaz gondola, which has free parking, and transports straight to the slopes, very easy with children. The ski/bike hire shop and the Tourist information centre are also in Barboleusaz.

The Swiss Alps region
Villars/ Gryon is ideally located on the south facing slopes of the beautiful Swiss Alps above the Rhone valley in the French speaking canton of Vaud. At an altitude of 1100-1300 the climate is perfect in summer or winter, with dry air and crystal clear views. Surrounded by mountains, meadows and vineyards, it is the perfect place to holiday; summer or winter, active or relaxed, for a family, a couple, or friends. Magically, Villars caters for all.
The surrounding area offers the elegant Montreaux where you can promenade along the northern shores of Lake Geneva, or catch a boat to Evian on the southern French side of the lake. The historic Chateau de Chillon, and the beach at Villeneuve are also worth a visit. For families the Aqua park, Park Aventure, and Adventure Labyrinth are all fun. For the more adventurous hot air ballooning, canoeing and climbing are all possible.
The salt mine in Bex, in the Rhone valley below Gryon is very interesting, but to relax the spa baths at Lavey les Bains should not be missed. At over 3000m the glacier at Les Diableret should be visited winter and summer.
In Winter Gryon/Villars is a typical family ski resort and is a good base for the many snow based activities on offer in the area: 160km of down hill skiing, iceskating, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and toboganning.
Once the snow melts the spring flowers can be enjoyed from the miles of designated mountain trails accompanied by the sound of the cow bells. For the more active there are mountain bike trails, paragliding, tennis courts, swimming pools and the Villars golf course with its spectacular mountain views.
