Family Winter stay 2020
Beautiful chalet, stunning views. Great space for our troupe of 7. Chalet equipped with everything you could possibly want. 5 minutes drive to the gondola at Gryon and 5 minutes to Villars restaurants. Plenty of snow on the mountain. All in all a great stay.
Perfect peaceful mountain retreat
Everything about this chalet is pure perfection and I can highly recommend a stay here.
We travelled as 3 families, of 8 in total, and had no issues at all with lack of space. In addition, all the amenities that you could wish for are included, so there is no need to worry about lack of utensils for your cooking.
The views from the chalet are fantastically unobstructed, the only noise, interrupting the peace, is from the cow bells and still just a 20 minute walk from the local shops and restaurants.
In our opinion, faultless.
If you like entertaining and want to feel you have enough space then this is the place for you.
What a fabulous chalet and place to stay. You will never tire of the view from the balcony.
Great for ski-in, ski-out. Excellent chalet.😊
We had a wonderful stay at Chalet Chanteclarine. Perfect location close to the slopes, beautiful view, super equipped and comfortable chalet.
We will definitely come back! Highly recommended.

Children will enjoy finding their feet in the free beginners' ski area in the village and adults will find the wide blue runs in the main ski area of Bretaye great for practising technique. With extensive pisted terrain both above and below the treeline, Villars offers a good range of blue and red runs, the more challenging of which can be found on Chaux Ronde and Grand & Petit Chamossaire.
Experienced skiers will enjoy tackling the more challenging terrain at Les Diablerets and its glacier as well as the several black runs from Roc d'Orsay back to the village. For snowboarders, there are snow parks at Bretaye, Isenau and Chaux Ronde, with various jumps, rails and a quarter-pipe on which to test your skills.
