We had a wonderful holiday here at Villa Nozawa. Loved it so much we're going back in January. Kyoka and Gab did a wonderful job making us feel very much at home. Kids had a ball. Snow brilliant. Nozawa Onsen magic. Couldn't have asked for more :))))

I promised myself I wouldn't write a review on my latest Japanese skiing holiday, suffice to say I hope many people don't read this review as I would like Villa Nozawa to remain a little secret of the privelliged few. The charm and beauty of Nozawa still remains in the fact that it has not yet been discovered by the... More

I’ve just returned from a wonderful holiday at Villa Nozawa. I used the reviews in TripAdvisor to choose both the destination in Japan and the accommodation. It was everything the good reviews said it would be. An easy introduction to Japan and an easy introduction to snowboarding! The Villa is spacious, the bedrooms comfortable and warm, and the atmosphere is... More

Hi JDinOz Thanks for the great review. It's true! The village of Nozawa Onsen has such character and so many things to do that your holiday can be so much more than just the snow.

A lot has been said of the wonderful experiences of alpine villa nozawa onsen that I almost didn't write a review. But excellence deserves to be congratulated. The establishment adds the added advantage being managed by fluent English speaking Swiss Gabriel and his lovely Japanese wife Kyoko. Our Japanese room with ensuite had the traditional bamboo and futons, quite large... More
