This charming chalet is set in the equally charming village of Villars-sur-Ollon in the western Swiss Vaud Alps. While many flock here in the winter months to ski, there’s still plenty to do come summer. Laid over three floors with an additional basement level, the chalet is well suited for families and small groups who have a passion for the great outdoors.
The first floor has an entrance hall, two bedrooms with a shared bathroom, a third en-suite bedroom suite and a games room. The second floor is the main level and welcomes social gatherings: There is a grand living room with floor-to-ceiling windows that have unobstructed views of the lush surroundings and the Alps. There is an open-plan kitchen and dining room, office and two further bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms on the second floor.
There’s also a terrace and outdoor Jacuzzi. On the top floor, you’ll find the master bedroom with en-suite dressing room. The chalet also has a wonderful stone-walled wine cellar, billiard room, ski room and a double garage.
