Startling views and wonderful cosy chalet.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holidays in September in Switzerland and we enjoyed our stay at Les Hirondelles chalet.

We were a family with small children 2 and 5 years old and grandparents.We arrived at the chalet after a long trip and found it clean and inviting. The house is very safe and comfortable for staying with a small children.The house is fully equipped the furniture, the kitchen, the bathrooms are made in high standard.

The owners Ian and Denese very nice people and I have got a full information about the chalet and what we can do during our vacation .Ian answered me immediately for all my questions. So it was very comfortable to correspond with him.

I will also agree with all reviewers and descriptions of the chalet from other guests.

I highly recommend this chalet. We are looking forward to come back for winter holidays.

Yana and family.

Superb chalet

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from 5 days at the chalet, Les Hirondelles, and we had a fabulous time. The chalet itself is extremely comfortable and very well appointed. It has that special combination of being homely but incredibly functional: clearly a lot of care and thought has gone into designing and furnishing Les Hirondelles and nothing has been overlooked.

We were in Villars to do some walking and the chalet was well located for this. The area caters for all levels of walks and hikes and everything is extremely well sign-posted. Generally we would go out in the mornings and have lunch at one of the mountain restaurants recommended before heading back to the chalet to recuperate and take in the stunning views over the valley from the chalet balcony.

We would unhesitatingly recommend Les Hirondelles to anyone looking to spend summer days walking in Switzerland. You could spend the entire summer there and still not get through all that is on offer in terms of walking, biking, swimming and, of course, eating. Useful information for all of these is provided at the chalet and the owners were extremely helpful when it came to the complicated rules of recycling in Switzerland.

We would love to go back!

Exceeded our high expectations! :-)

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely enjoyed our week long stay at Les Hirondelles chalet and would highly-recommend it. Plenty of room and space for our family of eight (six adult 'kids') to play, relax, cook, and make some great memories together. Ah, the view - which is stunning - and then it gets turned up yet anther notch by the surprise double-rainbows and the magnificent sunsets, the cows and their harmonious bells in the distance and a sky full of stars. Really special.

Great hikes to Travayenne, Solalex, mountain biking, visits to the new Bains de Villars, the bakery in Barboleuse, Le Table restaurant and nostalgic day-trips to Vevey, Gruyere, Fribourg and Interlaken/Thun. Our second to last day also coincided with the Vaud wine festival and Marché Artisinal which was so much fun.

Transaction and communications with the owners and property manager were smooth and efficient.

9 years in Villars and yet to find better

  • 5 of 5

Another wonderful visit for half term with my family to Les Hirondelles in Villars (see Taline F. review). This year was extra special, for the first time we navigated our way down the mountain as a family of 5. Given we are avid skiers this was a BIG milestone. When this feat is considered in combination with the familiar luxury and comfort the chalet it amounted to our best holiday ever. L'Etable is still a fantastic restaurant, the pistes are still extensive and well groomed, the post-ski hot tub and sauna get more necessary every year and the view from the sitting room still takes the breath away. I cannot recommend this chalet more highly.

Barboleuse, part of Villars/Gryon ski area is a vibrant all-year resort. It caters for families with extensive intermediate level runs and a snow-park as well as some more challenging off-piste skiing and access to the Diablerets glacier. Ski passes are free for under 9s. Close to Gstaad and Verbier for day trips.

There are excellent cafes, restaurants, bars and food shops, many of whom offer home delivery. The resort also has a newly refurbished bowling alley and cinema . Small ice-rink in the place at Barboleuse and a larger one in Villars. There is also a swimming pool in Villars and two excellent quality day spas. Two local creches which accept children under 6 on holiday and an English baby-sitting service that also rents baby equipment.

In the summer the resort is busy and there is mountain biking, golf, fishing, tennis and hiking. Within 30 mins. of the chalet there are two children's adventure parks, zoos, an aqua-park, steam park, mountain railways and the lake.
