Luxury Skiing In Villars with Elegant Resorts


With a long-held prestige as one of Switzerland’s finest ski destinations, Villars may be one of the smallest resorts in its region, but its fantastic position makes it a much sought-after gateway to some of the finest ski spots of the area. With 125 kilometres of marked slopes, and 45 kilometres dedicated to cross-country skiing, the resort also benefits from directly linking with four neighbouring Alpine ski areas – Gryon, Meilleret, Isenau and Glacier 3000 – all of which can be accessed with a single, hands-free, magnetic pass that effortlessly opens the gates to three sublime valleys. The village of Villars overlooks the picturesque Rhone Valley, Mont Blanc and the local ski area of Bretaye – a fantastic centre for winter sports – which is linked to Villars by the BVB railway, while a gondola lift boasting stunning views connects the village to Roc d’Orsay.

During the winter months, there is a thrilling array of snowsports and adventurous activities to keep all ages and abilities happy. There is a good choice of ski schools, three snowparks and a snow kindergarten, making this a great starting point for families looking to enjoy a luxury ski holiday together. While those looking for a challenge will find a number of activities to take part in, including sledding, snowshoeing, winter paragliding or ice-skating, Villars is best suited to beginners and intermediate skiers. Off-piste, there's a lively après-ski scene, boasting a number of bars and esteemed restaurants, while many typical mountain huts welcome guests who wish to admire the breathtaking scenery whilst sampling delectable traditional Swiss fare.

Villars is also renowned for its potential as a year-round destination, and has just as much to offer during the summer months. There are over 300 kilometres of signposted footpaths and 150 kilometres of mountain-bike routes and tours up to the mountain lakes of Lac de Chavonnes, Lac de Bretaye and Lac Noir are perfect for showcasing the stunning landscapes of this magnificent resort. Golfers will also strike gold in Villars with the wonderfully scenic eighteen-hole golf course located at 1,600 metres, where games can be played in the heart of the mountains with unrivalled views of Mont Blanc, while those seeking a little relaxation can visit the wellness centres and thermal baths in Lavey.

Snow: The ski season generally runs from December to April, though most snowfall occurs in January and February, with slopes catering well to beginners and intermediate skiers. Lift system: There is a choice of gondola or train from the village of Villars to the pistes and a number of chairlifts linking the peaks. Après ski: There is a lively après-ski scene with bars and esteemed restaurants open throughout the season. Families: Plenty of beginners slopes and ski schools, as well as calm and friendly surroundings, make this a great destination for families. Other activities: There is an array of winter sports to get involved in, including sledding, paragliding, snowshoeing and more. There is a fantastic golf course open during the summer months and a sports centre featuring three indoor tennis courts.
