We recently stayed at Villa Nozawa with our 3 year old who absolutely loved it. What a great change to meet other people and share stories and advice. The breakfasts were super yummy. Gab, Kyoko and the team were very friendly and helpful and even drove us to the the doctors when needed. Great views of the fire festival fireworks... More

Our family of 5 (2 adults, three teenagers 18,14,14,) really enjoyed our stay at Villa Nozawa. From the moment we arrived, our hosts Gab and Kyoko made the whole family feel very welcome. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, from serving a delicious breakfast and giving daily snow reports to organising lift tickets and lessons and recommending restaurants.... More

We visited Japan for the first time in December 2015. After a fabulous night in Tokyo we followed the crew at Villa Nozawa's advice and travelled to Nozawa Onsen by train - bullet and local. We are so grateful that we chose to stay at Villa Nozawa with our hosts, Gab & Kyoko, and their capable, intelligent crew of helpers... More

My family first visited in Jan 2012, stayed at Villa Nozawa and had an absolute ball. It has taken us 4 years to get back, though this time we brought some friends with us. It is very hard to maintain number 1 spot over time in any field of endeavour, but Mark, Gab, Kyoko, Mitsuho, Harry & the team have... More

This was our second visit to Nozawa Onsen and our second stay at Villa Nozawa. Just going back for seconds should give the reader an indication of how good this place is, but I feel I need to add more..... Apart from the clean rooms,great facilities and delicious brekkys, there is a genuine feeling of warmth from the staff (... More

I really doubt that there is a better place to stay in Nozawa Onsen. Gab and Kyoko do an amazing job of making everyone feel welcome and a part of the extended Villa Nozawa family. The lodge is very comfortable and warm and located a stones throw from the lifts. This was our families 4th visit and it just keeps... More

We loved staying at Villa Nozawa with our adult children. We were treated like family over the Christmas period and Gab and Kyoko and Harry and the other staff were very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was comfortable and cozy around the fireplace and our room was warm with beautiful bedding. Breakfasts were something to look forward to every morning... More

if you go to Villa Nozawa in Nozawa Onsen in summer you will experience the charm of a Japanese village in the mountains combined with the extraordinary sense of welcome from Luke, our australian host who manages the hotel/ryokan in summer. We stayed one week with family and we had a wonderful time (walking in the mountain, visiting the castle... More
