Surely these are the best-located apartments in Villars. Apart from being just steps away from the rail station and access up the mountain, within 100 metres of your front door are a couple of ski shops, a small grocery store, a bakery/café, newsstand, the tourist office, dry-cleaner, pharmacy, bank branch and a couple of hotels. You can throw a snowball off any of the balconies and hit the Catholic church.

David and Zany Anton-Smith have renovated this fine old building to a very high standard. The interior finishes are very attractive (traditional materials with a contemporary edge) and the units are well-furnished.

Villars is a lovely town for a family holiday or longer stay. In 2009, my wife and I, together with our three sons and my mother-in-law, spent the entire winter season in apartment 4 while the boys attended one of the international private schools. We were delighted to return this past winter for the boys’ March school break.

If you plan to stay local, you can do without a car altogether. It’s just as easy to take a cab to the restaurants outside of the central part of town (ie. Cookie, just beyond Barboleuse on the road to Solalex). Train service from the Geneva airport or from the valley floor is excellent. If you want greater variety in skiing, the Portes du Soleil across the Rhône Valley is about a half hour’s drive and Verbier about 45 minutes.

We very much enjoyed our stay in the Apartment; it was a pleasure to be in a place where the owners have given care and attention to its ambiance and facilities. We felt quite at home. We know Villars well and have stayed in many different places but this flat is our preferred choice now.

We stayed at Chalet Balthazar for a week including the Christmas weekend. It was fantastic. The apartment was more than comfortable for our party of four adults and a young baby. It is so proximate to everything that was happening in town. We really did not have to use our rental car even once. Add to that the fact that the owners, David and Zany, were so accommodating. Travelling from the US often results in an arrival time that is too early for check in. David and Zany were so easy to work with and eased our problem without any fuss. And one ever so welcome feature...lovely beds with lovely linens and pillows. I am looking forward to going back and hopefully very soon.

We had never been to Villars so we were not sure what to expect but we were thrilled when we found out how close the chalet is to the ski train! It also had very easy access to the market and village. The chalet was beautiful and the ski locker made getting ready every morning and afternoon super easy. We have teenage children who are very hard to plase but everyone loved the chalet--the best we have ever stayed in!

Chalet Balthazar was the perfect match for our family of two children age 9 and 7. We have found an elegantly furnished modern apartment extremely well located close to the ski train and bus and all shopping facilities yet completely quiet from street noise. We are currently living in New Zealand so it was very important for us to find a well equipped and convenient apartment after spending more than 24 hours with young children on a plane. We are hoping Chalet Balthazar will become a regular holiday place for us.
