Chalet Balthazar Apartment 4
from £314 /night help
Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Chalet Balthazar Apartment 4 is a luxurious 151m2 first floor apartment with high celings and lots of natural light. We have carefully mixed traditional materials with contemporary design to give a perfect chalet chic experience in a home from home environment. The roaring open fire, underfloor heating, luxurious en suite bathrooms, goose down bedding from 'The White Company', 400T Egyptian linen, professional 'Falcon' rangecooker, free Wifi and all the latest audiovisual entertainment are some of the comforts that will make you feel like you are staying in a top end hotel (but paying only a fraction of the price!)
The enormous open plan oak kitchen has granite worktops, a professional 'Falcon' Rangecooker, a breakfast bar and the latest appliances. A vast balcony leads off the sitting room and dining room where there are tables and chairs and stunning mountain views. There is a large flat screen TV with all the latest audio visual entertainment (Sky+, Wii, PS3, DVD) so all members of the family are kept happy.
All of the three superking/twin bedrooms have large balconies and views of the stunning 'Dents du Midi' and 'Muveran' mountain ranges. Two of the bedrooms are en suite and there are huge pocket sprung beds, built in wardrobes, flat screen TVs, DVDs and ipod docking stations in every room. Luxurious bedding from 'The White Company' and crisp 400T Egyptian linen ensure you have the best night's sleep. Oak parquet flooring, underfloor heating throughout and rustic antique wood give a wonderfully warm feel to the apartment.
The beauty of Chalet Balthazar is that it is under 2 minutes walk to the ski train, the local shops, bars and restaurants and the ski school meeting point. This means that there is no ski school stress in the morning and keen skiers can easily make the first train up to make fresh tracks. Non skiers of all ages can enjoy the delights of Villars on foot and easily walk to the swimming pool, ice rink, bowling or take the train up to the ski domain.
To make your stay even easier, there is a communal boot room with heated boot warmers and ski racks just by the front door.
Guests staying at Chalet Balthazar can benefit from endless advice and suggestions on the best restaurants, skidoo rides to mountain refuges, babysitters, masseurs, private chefs and local events not to be missed. Private parking is provided for guests.

Chalet Balthazar is a stunning and much commented on building. While in the centre of town it maintains a wonderfully discreet and quiet atmosphere. The exterior of the building is clad in warm wood and the carpentry has been finished to an exceptionally high standard. At night stunning up/down lights give the Chalet an air of exclusivity. In the evenings, the pink light of the sunset reflects off the building making it look almost magical in appearance. There are large balconies on the East and South sides providing stunning views over the 'Muveran' and 'Dents de Midi' mountain ranges and the chalet is enclosed by fir trees and a sturdy wooden fence. There is private parking to the rear of the building in this prime location. In summer colourful geraniums adorn the balconies and in winter the paths and parking areas are cleared early in the morning for our guests.
No ski school stress in the morning - you can warm your boots and store your skis safely in the communal boot room and simply walk across the road to the ski school meeting point.
Villars ski passes are FREE for kids under 9
Keen skiers staying at Chalet Balthazar can walk 2 minutes across the road to catch the first train up to the pistes and make fresh tracks.
A short walk to the shops, bars, restaurants, swimming pool, ice skating and bowling mean there are endless opportunities for non-skiers - both old and young.
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.
Situated in pole position in Villars, moments from the shops, bars and restaurants of the Rue Centrale and 50 metres from the bus/train station from where the ski train takes you up to the main ski area at Bretaye. Although in the heart of the village, Chalet Balthazar retains a quiet and discreet atmosphere.
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.
