Gab and Kyoko offered us the most attentive hospitality. From making us feel welcomed to guiding us through the essentials in Nozawa, sharing tips and helping us make reservations whenever needed. Our little flat was very nice, fully equipped and perfect for our 4-member family. We'll be back. Anne & Frank.

We had a wonderful stay with Kyoko, Gab and Mark. They made us feel so welcome and went above and beyond to help us, ranging from helping arrange ski gear, ski lessons (which were wonderful), trip to the snow monkeys and restaurant suggestions.

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.

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!
