Officially recognised as one of the best Swiss resorts for families, offering clearly marked pistes and great facilities.

Villars looks across the Rhone Valley to the mountains of the Portes du Soleil. The busy high street and chalet style buildings rewards Villars with the aura of a charming village atmoshphere.

With its low level chalets and bustling centre, Villars is an established resort for British skiers. Villars can be reached by a cog railway from the valley, going up into the slopes. Its worth staying near the main lift (which is at the opposite side of the village to the railway), or even in Villars-Gryon to take advantage of the gondola.

The lift system links with Les Diablerets and its Glacier. Verbier is within driving distance. On a sunny day, it is possible to see Mont Blanc.

There is a good mix of open and wooded slopes. The railway goes up the mountain, feeding intermediate slopes either side.
