About Chalet Balthazar Team

We are the owners of two superb luxury chalets in Central Villars (Chalet Balthazar www.villarsapartments.com and Chalet Melchior www.villarschalets.com) that we rent out to clients on a short or long term basis. We bought the properties due to their unrivalled location as we know how important it is to be in the centre of everything when going on a ski holiday. We are an English family with two children who have grown up in Switzerland and we are very aware of the needs of families holidaying with children. Our chalets have been fitted out with this in mind and are both safe, practical and pleasurable for all members of the family both young and old. We have a very efficient concierge team who help us look after our growing list of clients from around the world and we travel regularly from the UK to Switzerland to meet with them and visit the properties and our clients. We are passionate about Villars and having skied in many many resorts over the years we still think that Villars is an unbeatable location for a holiday. The resort is both safe for children and also offers more challenging skiing and adventure sports for the mores daring. Villars boasts one of the largest ski schools in Switzerland and there are many events throughout the year making it a social, vibrant and welcoming community.

Why Chalet Balthazar Team chose Villars-sur-Ollon

Both Chalet Balthazar and it's newer sister property, Chalet Melchior are in prime locations. Many self-catering chalets in the Villars area are not in central Villars but both Balthazar and Melchior have prime locations with quick, easy access to the ski slopes. Balthazar being in the centre of town and 50 metres from the ski train and Melchior with skiing from the back door to the telecabine. Both convenient and extremely comfortable, our chalets offer guests a magical home from home stay at very attractive prices. We aim to be as flexible and accommodating as possible and offer guests inside advice and suggestions on everything from the best ski route home to organising surprise skidoo rides through the forest. Nothing is too much for our concierge team who are on hand to help organise your holiday.

What makes this apartment unique

It is possible to be one of the first eager skiers on the ski slopes by catching the first train or telecabine with ease and no stress. Children can easily be deposited as ski school meeting points. Walk to the bakery and restaurants in under a minute. Hire your ski equipment across the road and stay connected with free wifi, Sky + and all technological needs. No need for a car when staying at Chalet Balthazar as everything is on your doorstep and it is possible to take the train straight from Geneva airport. For those that do bring a car, plenty of on-site parking provided. Guests can benefit from concierge service and inside information ensuring a stress free, unique and enjoyable holiday.

Perfect place after a day of skiing!

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Villars so we were not sure what to expect but we were thrilled when we found out how close the chalet is to the ski train! It also had very easy access to the market and village. The chalet was beautiful and the ski locker made getting ready every morning and afternoon super easy. We have teenage children who are very hard to plase but everyone loved the chalet--the best we have ever stayed in!

excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We used Chalet Balthazar as a bolt hole for 9 months from London and and thus were there regularly for ski holidays, long weekends as well as long periods in the summer. The chalet is perfectly situated in the centre of town and a short walk to the train station, which is key if trying to get young children to the train and ski lessons on time. The hosts were extremely helpful of our needs around the chalet as well as their advise and assistance around town. It is kept to a high standard and we certainly felt at home during our time there and were sad to give it up.We'll be back next Christmas for sure.

A gem in the heart of Villars

  • 5 of 5

This really is a fabulous chalet. As a family with 4 small children we didn't want the restrictions that come with a hotel or a fully catered chalet (although chefs could be arranged if required). This was the perfect solution, the location could not have been better, very close to the shops, retaurants and train station yet quiet as it's just behind the main street. The interior is all finished to a very high standard, White Company bed linen and a well equipped modern kitchen. The owners live in the resort so any queries could be dealt with promptly. Nothing was too much trouble cleaning help, babysitting,cots,resort advice etc were all dealt with immediately.

Chalet Balthazar has a fabulously convenient location in the village center, moments from the shops, bars and restaurants of the Rue Centrale.

Villars tourist office for booking ski lessons, the beginner ski slopes adjacent to the Villars Palace Hotel and the train station from where the ski train takes you up to the main ski area at Bretaye under 3 minutes walk.

If driving to Chalet Balthazar, the journey is an extremely straight forward 75 min drive from Geneva Airport or 3 hours from Zurich Airport.

If travelling by train, there is a rail service direct from Geneva Airport to Aigle (a 20 minute journey by car/taxi to Balthazar) or to the next stop, Bex, from where you can change and take the mountain train direct to Villars. Balthazar is 50m from the train station.

Golf: Villars is blessed with a world-class 18-hole golf course located in an amazing mountain location at 5300 ft (1600 m). The golf course and its superb restaurant are perched on a south-facing plateau where you can play around, enjoy drinks or a meal amid some of the most stunning views of the Alps and Mont-Blanc. For those wishing to learn how to play, individual lessons or week-long group programs for all levels can be arranged with PGA certified professionals in this most relaxed, unique and beautiful setting. The Club is open from mid-May to October and can be accessed by the funicular railway from Villars station or by road.

Ski: 75 ski lifts connect 220km of slopes and a chairlift connection to the neighboring 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 minutes away, Chamonix 1hr 15mins, Les Portes du Soleil (Champery, Avoriaz & Morzine) 40 minutes and Gstaad 1hr. Crans Montana, Saas Fee and Zermatt are further afield but all ski able on a days excursion.
