About the property

Chic Ski in/Ski out Luxury Chalet in Central Villars with Stunning Views

Chalet Melchior (www.villarschalets.com) is a fabulous luxury chalet arranged over three floors and sleeps up to 12 people in true alpine chalet chic style. A sister chalet to the ever popular Chalet Balthazar in the centre of town, this magnificent ski in / ski out chalet is located in prime location just above the main Villars' Roc D'Orsay telecabine so skiing from the back door and ascending to the main ski domain couldn't be easier (the telecabine also runs in summer). Families and groups can benefit from our unrivaled and highly praised concierge service while staying in either chalet ensuring they have the best holiday possible. Chalet Melchior is the ultimate in chalet-chic and our guests can enjoy great apres-ski or 'down time' with a roaring open fire in the beautiful and vast open plan sitting room with bespoke library, 40' TV, Sky + and DVD or listening to music through 'Bose' speakers while children can enjoy the 'games room' playing on the PS3, watching DVDs or going through our well stocked games cupboard. The professional 'Varenna' kitchen is a pleasure to spend time in with everything a professional cook should need including two 'Gaggenau' ovens a huge 'Liebherr' fridge, a breakfast / drinks bar, gas rings, dishwasher and wine storage for up to 40 bottles. A deep double sink stunning granite tops and panoramic views of the mountains as well as the 'home run' piste where skiers make their final descent of the day. There is ample space for 12 around the extendable dining table with enormous sliding glass doors onto the deep balcony with breathtaking views. A truly stunning setting for every meal.

All of the bedrooms are beautifully presented with deep pocket-sprung beds imported from England with duck-down bedding from the prestigious 'White Company' and Egyptian cotton sheets. Tastefully furnished with ample built-in storage, warm under-heated parquet floors, rustic wood and yet more stunning views to enjoy. All of the upstairs bedrooms are en suite the master bedroom also has its own stylish walk through dressing room.

Bathrooms are luxurious yet practical with either power showers or deep baths by 'Villeroy and Bosch' with fluffy white towels of course. Three further bedrooms are on the lower ground floor and a large family bathroom together with a well equipped laundry room. There is wifi throughout the chalet and a huge garden for everyone to have fun in and explore. There's a covered garage and total parking space (exterior) for 4 cars. Available to rent for short or long periods. For further information and photos please visit our dedicated website www.villarschalets.com or contact us directly.

About Chalet Melchior Team

English family. French speaking. We have been visiting Villars for 20 years and know everything about the area and all of the locals! We spent 5 years living permanently in Villars with our two young children and put them in a wonderful international school. We have launched Chalet Melchior on the back of our already very successful Chalet Balthazar in the Centre of Villars due to our growing list of faithful clients from all over the world who return every year. We have a very efficient concierge team and travel ourselves between the UK and Switzerland ensuring our business runs smoothly.

Why Chalet Melchior Team chose Gryon

We bought this property as we immediately knew what an amazing position it was in and how unique it was. It is possible to ski from the back door in the winter and in the summer there are beautiful alpine walks. It is close to the local schools and in a private community, central to everything. It is very safe for children, peaceful and has stunning views of the surrounding mountains. You can even watch the skiers coming home at the end of the day down the 'home run'! There is incredible glacier skiing on the 'Diablarets Glacier 3000' which is included in your ski pass and very possible to ski there and back in a day - an exhilarating experience. Oh and ski passes for under 9 are free!

What makes this chalet unique

Unlike other chalets in Villars which can be set away from the main ski domaine (be careful when booking!) both of our chalets, Chalet Melchior and Chalet Balthazar are in prime location taking all the hassle out of a holiday and leaving more time for fun. Chalet Melchior is uniquely situated in one of the most exclusive areas of Villars and just above the main super-fast 8 man telecabine. It is possible to ski from the back door to the telecabine in under 5 minutes making it very easy for ski school. A short walk (10 minutes) to the centre of town or an even shorter drive to pick up anything you need (but we don't think you will want to leave the chalet much!) Chalet Balthazar on the other hand is right in the centre of town only 50 metres from the main ski train and under a minute's walk to all the shops, restaurants and bars. While both chalets are in prime location they both retain a precious air of peace and tranquility. The level of comfort in both Melchior and Balthazar are of the highest quality and we like to think we have thought of everything to ensure you will have the best nights sleep, stay connected with high speed wifi / Sky + and even have warm boots in the morning. Whether its winter / summer / spring or autumn there is always so much to do for right on the doorstep and we are here to help suggest activities for all ages. Our concierge team can also advise you on everything there is to know about Villars and share their knowledge with you so your holiday is the best ever! Our guests return every year and give us fabulous reviews which we feel is testament to our high level of service, comfort, convenience and excellent value for money.
