We stayed here for several nights in March and definitely wished we could've stayed longer. Firstly, the staff, led by Mark, are super friendly and helpful. They sorted us out with ski gear within an hour of arriving! The villa is really warm and cozy; the futon beds are comfy and there's a good communal area with a great fire.... More

We stayed at Villa Nozawa in late March this year and had a fantastic time. We were very lucky with the conditions as it snowed for the first 3 days so we had wonderful fresh powder to play in but it was the great hospitality from Kyoko, Gab and the Nozawa team that made our stay, along with the charm...

You don't get to No. 1 on trip advisor unless you are good. And this place is seriously good. We stayed at Villa Nozawa with our two teenage kids for the first of our three weeks in Japan. The Japanese people are consistently friendly, polite and kind, but the team that run the Villa still stood out above all others... More
