A few points to consider - 1 You will need a car due to the location of the apartment 2 You can either hire a car in Geneva ( as we did ) or take a train to Aigle and hire a car there 3 The property was very clean and well maintained 4 The town of Villars has good services 5 Make use of all the walking tracks available in the area and the many restaurants that complement each walk 6 I would recommend this property for those people who are looking for a quiet and safe area

Spacious and comfortable with good quality furnishings. It was very well equipped and had everything we needed. There were lovely views from every window and we enjoyed being able to sit out on the patio in the sunshine. Contact with the owners was excellent and the collection and return of keys to the local agent was very smooth. We certainly hope to return soon. Christine and Graham
