LIVING IN THE MOUNTAINS
THE NATURAL CHOICE
365 DAYS OF FREEDOM A YEAR
A typically Alpine atmosphere and environment – escape and unwind throughout the year.
Whatever the season, this compact village (population 3,500) offers a world of leisure opportunities. Hedonia Alpine Residence is located close to shops, leisure activities centers and public transport in the centre of the village. Overlooking the Rhone valley and the ski slopes, it is surrounded by nature reserves and spectacular hiking trails. In the village itself are sporting activities for everyone, including an 18-hole golf course, tennis centre, indoor skating rink and the Bains de Villars spa with its semi-Olympic pool, wellness zone and children’s recreation area. The ski area rises from 1,200 m to 3,000 m and offers 125 km of slopes to suit all levels of expertise.
For over a hundred years a narrow-gauge railway has wound its way from Bex in the Rhone valley through the vineyards and mountain pastures to the village and on to the Col de Bretaye.
The resort offers a selection of hotels and a range of places to eat out, from Michelin-starred restaurants to brasseries and traditional rustic mountain huts. Villars Tourism organises seasonal concerts and cultural events for visitors and the residents of the village.
There are four private schools in Villars, offering students world-class schooling in magnificent surroundings. Around 800 international students contribute to the dynamic and cosmopolitan social life of the village all through the year.
