About Donna

I get a lot of pleasure sharing my mountain retreat with other people, swapping stories of days on the slopes or new hikes or restaurants to try. If there is anything I can do to make you feel at home, let me know and I'd be happy to try and help.

Donna purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Donna chose World

The idyllic mountain location and uninterrupted views never fail to to take my breath away at any time of the year. The local mountain has a surprisingly diverse amount of terrain for all levels and is more relaxed than some of the bigger resorts in the area.

Warm, comfortable, quiet and well equipped pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday staying in Donna's lovely apartment - the clouds did clear to give stunning views some days! New kitchen well equipped and easy to use - appreciated the bits left by previous guests (eggs, filter coffee, etc) for which the favour was returned for the next guests. Underground parking very convenient as are access arrangements. We found the Restaurant L'Alchimiste to be very friendly and willing to adjust to the vegetarian and vegan in our party, welcoming us back a second time. Trips to Glacier 3000, Martigny (good museum!) and Les Bains de Lavey all easily accessible. We would definitely return to the apartment (if available!) on a future Villars holiday. Thank you!

Great Rental!

  • 5 of 5

With its well-equipped kitchen, its location close to shops and to hiking trails, and its beautiful balcony view, this rental proved a perfect base for our week of explorations in the Villars area. Day trips to Evian, Montreux, Gruyeres and Glacier 3000 were interesting and fun. The owner made the entire process easy; we hope to return.

Great location, quaint cozy apartment in chalet

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful time and enjoyed the lovely fireplace practically every night. The location is very convenient. It is very close to the bus stop. The skiing conditions were very good especially when it snowed it was better. Loved the town restaurants (Mamma Lotta’s had the best pizza, Le sporting had great gourmet cuisine and the slope restaurants like Hotel du Lac and Auberge de Cod Soud was magnificent). We look forward to hopefully revisit again for the next winter semester break. We will definitely recommend your wonderful quaint place to our friends. Stay well and happy. 😊 Thank you.

Owner's Response: Mel, I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay, made good use of the apartment and fire place and had great skiing! It sounds like you explored plenty of the restaurants both in and off piste. You or any of your friends are most welcome to come back another season.
