Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday chalet in Ollon - 'Le Chalet'

4/5 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom Property With Fabulous Mountain Views

A historically significant building in the village which has been recently renovated to very high standards and modern specification.

With total living space of 380m2, sleeping 12, it features stylish entertaining spaces as well as traditional chalet cosiness.

Divisible into two parts: a main chalet with, at ground level, a stunning vaulted reception room with two fire places and stone floors, exceptional views and access to a large garden, two dining areas ideal for large gatherings, a master bedroom floor with media entertainment room, and further bedrooms on the top floor (total number of beds sleeping six people). Large garden and beautiful terrace for summer barbeques and many balconies for winter sun.

The second part, the lower ground floor has a spacious two bedroom apartment with beds to accommodate up to six people, two bathrooms (one en-suite) as well as a beautiful custom made sauna, living room with a fireplace and open plan kitchen and access to its own terrace and garden. Depending on availability, it may be possible to rent just one of these two parts of the chalet. Please contact the owner for relevant rates.

The village has an unrivalled position in the Alps being located close to the pleasant rolling pastures and forests whilst enjoying breathtaking views due south on to the highest mountains of the Mont Blanc area which receive magnificent plays of light at both sunrise and sunset. Winter is beautiful, as is the Summer. The autumn colours are special too.

Why Paivi Dubois chose Switzerland

The chalet is a real original chalet with charming carvings throughout and inscriptions commemorating the Great War in 1916.

Villars is an enlightened mountain resort which has always been open to international visitors and hosts several long established high end international boarding schools ensuring that there is activity in the village in all seasons.

Its general sunny aspect and the array of views - from the chain of mountains to the east bathed in pink sunsets from the last rays of the setting sun - to the Argentiere - Trient peaks of the Mont Blanc area, due South - to the Dents du Midi - takes some beating.

What makes this chalet unique

The Chalet was sensitively renovated and furnished as a family home in 2010. It was designed for all year round occupation and has a range of spaces for gathering together or for relaxing in privacy. It is constructed out of wood (rather than being made of concrete clad with wood panels). For sauna connoisseurs, there is an original Finnish sauna, commissioned by the Finnish owner. Baker, grocer, butcher and ski hire shop are 2 minutes away.

We had a terrific time at the chalet. It is spacious with mulitple rooms to relax in groups of 4 or 5. It is convenient to both the town and the mail bubble lift. It has lovely views over the valley. All the amenties in the chalet are first rate. Like being in a luxury home

Fantastic views, interior and location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very spacious for 4 adults and 4 children with great views from the breakfast table. We had ample parking and the location could not be better. Highly recommend and we look forward to coming back next year.

Der perfekte Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Zum zweiten Mal waren wir Gäste im „Le Chalet“ und es war rundum perfekt. Auch im Sommer ist das Haus, ob der idealen Lage, die erste Wahl. Die Nähe zu allen möglichen Freizeitangeboten und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten ist optimal und dennoch ist die Lage von „Le Chalet“ äußerst ruhig. Es ist kein Verkehrslärm zu hören. Der Blick ins Tal und auf die Bergkulisse ist auch im Sommer atemberaubend. Für die Fahrzeuge und unser Sportausrüstung war genügend Platz in der Garage, im Carport und vor dem Haus vorhanden. Die Kombination aus luxuriöser Ausstattung und Gemütlichkeit ist perfekt getroffen. So bieten beispielsweise die Terrassen ein gemütliches, lauschiges Plätzchen für ein Glas Wein beim Sonnenuntergang. Empfehlenswert ist auch die Auswahl an guten Restaurants in Chesiére.

Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und flexibel. Sie achten sehr auf Ihr Chalet, das sie mit viel Liebe und Geschmack eingerichtet und ausgestattet haben. Mit sieben Personen ist das Haus sicher nicht voll belegt und bietet immer noch Rückzugsmöglichkeiten für jeden.

Wir werden sicher wieder kommen, denn „Le Chalet“ bot uns in jeder Hinsicht die optimalen Voraussetzungen für einen wunderschönen Urlaub.

A gem of a chalet!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed for a week of skiing and relaxing and this chalet was perfect! It's not only beautiful and meticulously restored to all the details, it's also very practical and comfortable. The house was very clean and seemed brand new in its furniture and fixtures. We especially appreciated the sauna, which was used almost every day after a long day on the slopes. The skiing in Villars was also a pleasant surprise - the pistes were many and variable for all skill levels, and always in great condition. There's also some great restaurants on the slopes - try the L'Etable in the Les Chaux area. It's an interesting restaurant / stable with great food!

What can I say, the week was great, and we really hope we can make it back again. I would highly recommend this chalet for anyone with appreciation for the finer things in life.

Atemberaubender Luxus in perfekter Lage

  • 5 of 5

Beim ersten Blick morgens auf die fantastische Skyline des Mont Blanc Massivs wissen sie: „Allein dies war es Wert das Le Chalet zu wählen“.

Das Haus hat nicht nur die perfekte Lage, es lässt auch keine Wünsche offen. Zudem kann fast alles zu Fuß erreicht werden, vom Bäcker bis zum Ski-Lift. Auch Chesiére und Villars sur Ollon sind ein echter Geheimtipp.

Wir waren sieben Personen und alle waren komfortabelst untergebracht. Die Gemütlichkeit und Großzügigkeit der Wohnräume, die Bäder, die Sauna, die gesamte Ausstattung und das gediegene, elegante Interieur machen das wohnen im „Le Chalet“ zu einem wundervollen Erlebnis. Nach dem Skifahren in die hauseigene Sauna zu gehen ist einfach fantastisch.

Für die Fahrzeuge sind Stellplätze, Carport und Garage vorhanden.

Auf den ersten Blick sieht man dem Haus den Komfort und die Größe nicht an. Ein wunderschönes Haus mit viel Charakter.

Die Eigentümer waren sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und bemüht unsere Wünsche zu erfüllen. Keiner von uns hatte etwas zu bemängeln oder vermisste etwas. Das Haus ist perfekt und sehr zu empfehlen. Wir waren alle sehr zufrieden und werden auf alle Fälle wieder kommen. Zudem versuchen wir auch für den Sommer zu buchen. Einer der schönsten Golfplätze in den Alpen ist gerade mal 10 Minuten entfernt.

Fantastic old fully renovated chalet in Villars

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for New Year, we were 2 couples with 2 kids each (1 to 6y old), and the chalet was perfect. Beautiful view, garage, sauna, small yard in front of the chalet to make snowman with kids. Generally cosy atmosphere with newbuilt totally independent garden level floor, newbuilt extension with fireplace for friendly apperitivos, quiet reading or music listening. Huge master bedroom with walk in closet, large bathroom and TV room with wide screen on 1st floor. A car is needed, even if ski lift (1km) and center of town (2km) are very close from the chalet. Owners very friendly and responsive. Wifi available. I would strongly recommend the place for a one or two families with kids ! Not a sleek 5 stars hotel or chalet as you could find in more flashy ski resorts, but a very authentic chalet.
