The sunny south-facing resort of Villars is a hidden gem. Villars is located in the canton of Vaud and part of the municipality of Ollon. A desirable resort, Villars Sur Ollon offers gentle skiing, traditional ambience, picturesque chalets and smart hotels.
There are 77 ski lifts available to explore the winter sports region, the 220km of pistes of the Villars-Gryon-Les Diablerets and Glacier 3000 ski area leads all the way back to the village. The skiing is great for families due to the many beginner and intermediate slopes, making it a perfect resort for those adults and kids who are learning to ski for the first time or need a refresh. The off-piste slopes are opening up if you want a scenic run through the backcountry and into the village. This makes Villars a fine destination for mixed ability groups, all of who can enjoy fine dining on the slopes.
