Ein Chalet, das keine Wünsche offen lässt mit herrlichem Panoramablick. Trotz bescheidener Schneeverhältnisse konnten wir täglich in ca. 50 m Entfernung zur Talabfahrt unseren Skitag beginnen. Das Haus ist für Gruppen bis 8 Personen bestens geeignet und perfekt ausgestattet. Das Raumangebot ist sehr großzügig und jeder konnte sich so auch bei Bedarf zurückziehen. Das Chalet verfügt über eine gemütliche Sauna und einen Whirlpool mit herrlichem Blick auf die Berge. Bei Ankunft fanden wir das Objekt einem Luxus-Chalet entsprechend sauber und gepflegt vor.Die Küche ist auch für das Bekochen von größeren Gruppen sehr gut ausgestattet. Die Anfahrt zum Chalet ist steil auf einer engen Straße. Es ist empfehlenswert, vorsorglich Schneeketten mitzunehmen. Wenn man jedoch dem Räumdienst genügend Zeit lässt, ist die Straße spätestens ab ca. 11.00 Uhr wieder problemlos befahrbar. Die Betreuung durch den Vermieter und den Verwalter war super. Jede gestellte Frage wurde unverzüglich und ausführlich beantwortet. Wir werden sicherlich wiederkommen, damit wir das Skigebiet auch noch bei besseren Schneeverhältnissen kennenlernen können.

Over the last 6 years we have visited Villars for our half term ski holiday and I am yet to see or hear of a better chalet in which to spend a week with the family. The resort itself is all one would expect of a premier Swiss ski town but all the while maintaining a unique charm and character. Les Hirondelles matches such a setting with consummate ease, not only does it have charm and character but an understated yet immediately apparent feeling of luxury and style. The layout of the chalet makes it ideal for larger or smaller groups wheteher they are feeling social or looking for post-piste downtime. There are light and airy double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, an open plan kitchen, dining room and sitting room that has a communal yet spacious feel with a cosy log fireplace as a centrepiece. This room enjoys the everchanging and inspiring views to the mountains as seen in the photographs. This year I felt the benefits of the sauna and hot tub bath after a day on Villars' scenic slopes (growing older!), the children enjoyed winding down in the TV room, slouching on beanbags with a DVD on the widescreen television. The owners Denese and Ian can accomodate most requests and this year recommended an excellent restaurant (L'Etable) for lunch - it was delicous and a short ski from the house. We had 6 days of blue sky skiing as well!

Les Hirondelles is impossible to fault.

Luxurious for skiers and non skiers.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the chalet, after a long tiring drive. The chalet was clean and inviting.The cupboards were stocked with tea, coffee, milk etc which was very much appreciated.

Our party consisted of skiers and non skiers aged from 6 to 66.The ski area is extensive and suitable for skiers of different abilities. There are 2 runs out of the chalet .The first involves a shortish walk uphill, then a gentle downhill ski to the chairlift. The other route is a short walk downhill onto the piste that now leads directly to the gondola station. (Previously the piste terminated in the village square, some distance from the gondola) The ski back to the chalet involves either a shortish downhill walk from the piste or a very short off piste run to within meters of the chalet door.

For the non skiers, a 5minute drive to Barboleuse or 10 minutes to Villars gave access to a variety of mountain restaurants via the gondola and venicular.

The chalet is tastefully furnished with attention given to comfort. The beds were comfortable and the on suites all had baths, which were appreciated at the end of a long day ski-ing. The kitchen is well equipped with everything one needs to cook for a large party of ten.There is a TV room with sofa and bean bags where the children would chill out and enjoy a film or their favourite TV programme. ( All UK freeview channels plus innumerable Swiss/French/German channels)The lounge is comfortable with a lovely log fire in the middle of the room. Everyone enjoyed the amenities the chalet had to offer, including the spa and sauna.

We also enjoyed the New Year celebrations. We all stayed up until 1o'clock watching the fireworks in all the surrounding mountain villages and down in the valley. Spectacular!

Can't wait to go back!

Luxury in the Alps

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week in this beautiful chalet. We came in the summer for a week of walking, hiking and biking and we managed to do all of that in the surrounding area. The chalet exceeded our expectations - it is huge and the kids loved having so much to space to spread out in. The chalet is very well kitted out and had everything we needed for a week of self-catering. There is a great bike shop down in La Babalouse where you can rent bikes for the day and they have excellent biking maps (sorry, meant to leave ours in the villa for other guests but forgot). So much to do here in the summer and it is truly beautiful to sit out on the large terrace and watch the sunset. We will return....Owner was incredibly helpful and responsive.

Luxus-Chalet in Traumlage

  • 5 of 5

Luxus-Chalet für bis zu 10 Personen in Traumlage und mit Traumaussicht in unmittelbarer Pistennähe in den Höhen von Barboleuse. Für uns perfekt, da man nach ein paar Metern Fussmarsch direkt ins Skigebiet gelangt, ohne zur Talstation abfahren zu müssen. Abfahrt bis direkt zum Chalet.

Das moderne und sehr geschmackvoll ausgestattete Chalet bietet neben den 5 Schlafzimmern und 5 Bädern einen grosszügigen Wohn-Ess-Bereich, eine grosse gut ausgestattete Küche, ein Fernseh-, ein Spiel- und ein Arbeitszimmer und als besonderes Highlight einen Spabereich mit Jacuzzi und Sauna. Auch bei unserem dritten Aufenthalt hat uns das Chalet wieder begeistert und der Kontakt mit dem Eigentümer war wie immer sehr angenehm und unkompliziert.

Truly Lovely Property

  • 5 of 5

The chalet offers everything one needs for a hassle-free and relaxing ski get-away; accommodations are modern and clean, amenities abound, and there is ample room for families. Location is spectacular overlooking a snowy valley and the Alps. Convenient to the piste and nightlife. Cannot be faulted. Mimi & Ned, London
