Chalet | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Chalet Melchior is a magnificent ski in / ski out chalet arranged over three floors and sleeps up to 12 people in true alpine chalet chic style. A sister chalet to the very popular Chalet Balthazar in the centre of town, Chalet Melchior is in prime location just above the main Villars' Roc D'Orsay telecabine so skiing from the back door and ascending to the main ski domain couldn't be easier (the telecabine also runs in summer). Families and groups can benefit from our unrivalled and highly praised concierge service while staying in either chalet ensuring they have the best holiday possible. Our guests can enjoy great 'down time' or apres ski with a roaring open fire in a beautiful open plan sitting room with bespoke library, 40" TV, Sky +, wifi and DVD or listening to music through 'Bose' speakers while children can enjoy the games room either playing on the PS3, watching DVDs or playing with our well stocked games cupboard. The professional 'Varenna' kitchen is a pleasure to spend time in with everything a professional cook should need including two 'Gaggenau' ovens, a huge 'Liebherr' fridge, a breakfast / drinks bar, gas burners, dishwasher and storage for up to 40 bottles. A deep double sink, stunning granite tops and panoramic views of the mountains as wells the 'home run' piste where skiers make their final descent of the day. There is ample space for 12 around the extendable dining table with enormous sliding doors onto the deep balcony with breathtaking views. A truly stunning setting for every meal.
All the bedrooms are beautifully presented with deep pocket-sprung beds imported from England with duck-down bedding from 'The White Company' and Egyptian cotton sheets. Tastefully furnished with ample built-in storage, warm under-heated parquet floors, rustic wood and yet more stunning views to enjoy. All of the upstairs bedrooms are en suite and the master also has its own mirrored walk through dressing area.
Bathrooms are luxurious yet practical with either power showers or deep baths by 'Villeroy and Bosch' with fluffy white towels of course. Three further bedrooms are on the lower ground floor and a large family bathroom together with a well equipped laundry room.
There is wifi throughout the chalet and a huge garden for everyone to have fun in and explore. There is a covered garage and total parking space (exterior) for 4 cars. Available to rent for short or long periods and ideal for groups or two families sharing.

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.
Chalet Melchior is located in 'Domaine de la Residence', the most exclusive area of Villars. You can ski from the back door 5 minutes down to the main Roc D'Orsay telecabine or hike/snowshoe up into the stunning Alpine scenery from the mountain trail at the top of the garden. Chalet Melchior has beautiful, professionally landscaped gardens with a stream running the length of the property. It is very private yet close to the centre of Villars' village where there are restaurants, bars and shops.
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.
