For over 150 years now, the resort has offered its guests a wide variety of sports and leisure activities. This welcoming village offers many restaurants, hotels and bars, as well as a lively shopping street and a train station.
Villars offers a setting with a cosmopolitan atmosphere frequented by all age groups since several international private schools have been established there for decades.
Villars welcomes its guests in a typical alpine atmosphere and offers a relaxing escape from everyday life. Ancestral chalets and more modern wooden constructions characterise the landscape of the resort.
In this idyllic setting, many magnificent views of the Dents du Midi, the Mont Blanc massif or Lake Geneva are conducive to escape and relaxation to spend unforgettable moments in the mountains.
The Villars ski area is linked to Gryon and Les Diablerets and Glacier 3000. The slopes are perfectly maintained for skiers and snowboarders of all levels. Young children begin sliding in the snow gardens, while older children improve their jumps in the snowparks.
Pedestrians have easy access to the ski area and the high-altitude restaurants thanks to mountain transport such as the cogwheel train which connects Villars to Bretaye, the gondolas and the winter hiking trails.
A Rando Parc for safe ski touring, several cross-country ski trails , toboggan runs and numerous winter and snowshoe hiking trails allow everyone to find the activities of their choice for an unforgettable stay.
People looking for relaxation can also take advantage of the wellness facilities and offers at Les Bains de Villars .
The town of Ollon extends over a vast territory. In the charming village of Ollon, there is a relaxed way of life.
In and around the streets, you will find some very beautiful historic buildings, including the Château de la Roche, a venerable building whose origins date back to the Middle Ages.
Exposed to the south, at the foot of the Pre-Alps, the hillside vineyard of Ollon benefits from a hot and dry climate, influenced by the foehn. Grape varieties with unique flavours are bottled by the winegrowers of the region.
Gradually gaining altitude, you can discover the 23 scattered hamlets that lead to Villars.
The small village of Saint-Triphon is one of them. Renowned for its “black marble” quarries exploited from the 16th to the 20th century, the stone of St-Triphon was already used in Antiquity. Many buildings throughout Switzerland were built using stones from St-Triphon.
The summit of the municipality, the Grand Chamossaire culminates at an altitude of 2,112 metres above sea level.
