Villars-sur-Ollon / Gryon

Located in the heart of the Vaud Alps, at an altitude of 1300 m on a sunny southern terrace above the Rhone valley, the holiday resort of Villars-sur-Ollon / Gryon offers impressive views of the Dents-du-Midi, the Mont Blanc massif and Lac Léman.
Villars and its neighbouring villages of Chesières and Arveyes have merged together, located around 800 m above the Rhone Valley. The Canton Vaud holiday resort offers an international ambiance with guests of all ages but several up-market private schools have also put down roots here. Villars is reached by road from Ollen or Bex in the Rhone Valley. In summer there is also a road link to Les Diablerets. From Bex, a narrow-gauge railway winds up to the sun terrace of Villars and on to the starting point of a host of sport and leisure activities in Bretaye.

SUMMER

in summer the focus is on hiking, mountain biking and golf. There is a choice of over 300 km of signposted hiking trails and 150 km of mountain-biking routes. An attractive tour leads up to the mountain lakes of Lac de Chavonnes, Lac de Bretaye and Lac Noir.The scenic 18-hole golf course at 1600 m altitude offers golf in an Alpine ambiance with views of Mont Blanc. An educational forest path with picnic huts, Nordic walking trails and a sports centre with a climbing wall offer more sporting action.

WINTER

the ski region of Villars consists of the two areas at Villars/Bretaye and Gryon and is linked to Diablerets and its 3000 m-altitude glacier ski region by the Le Meilleret ski link. This embraces a ski arena with 77 facilities and 220 kilometres of piste, four snowparks, a snow kindergarten, 44 km of cross-country ski pistes, sledge runs and numerous winter-walking routes – as well as lively après-ski action. Those seeking quieter, less energetic pursuits can enjoy the facilities and wellness offers at the thermal spa.

Highlights

  • Bretaye – departure point for many hiking and biking tours as well as a hub of winter sport above Villars, reached by cogwheel railway
  • Golf course – attractive 18-hole golf course at 1600 metres altitude. Impressive panorama towards Mont Blanc.
  • Les Diablerets/Glacier 3000 – the highest point in the Vaud Alps with stunning views of the most beautiful Alpine summits.
