The resort of Villars-sur-Ollon (map) is in the heart of the Vaud Alps. It offers sports, relaxation and cultural activities, far from pollution and noise in an idyllic setting with a breathtaking panorama extending from Lake Geneva to Mont-Blanc. Villars has carefully protected its village ambience: old ancestral chalets sit alongside recent constructions in wood, all of which preserves a harmony that blends perfectly into the natural setting. Guests therefore find a typical mountain atmosphere, that lends itself to relaxation with a superb view.
