“Lovley Apartment in Super location”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

We recently stayed at Chalet Balthazar for 7 nights and found the apartment (no-4) to be very spacious and comfortable and containing everything you require for a hassle free and relaxing stay.

I have read a number of the other reviews for Chalet Balthazar on Trip Advisor and would agree with all of the positive remarks made, imp particular the good standard and comfort of the apartment, convenient car parking on-site, very convenient location to bakery, restaurants, super market, ski hire, children's beginners ski slopes and train station where you catch the train up to the Bretaye ski area (10 -15 min), everything Is literally 2 minutes away from your apartment, but it is still nice and quite at night.

Chalet Balthazar and the Villars area in general is a great holiday choice, so much on offer, we will definitely be back.

Having read the glowing reviews, one is always sceptical. But Chalet Balthazar outlived the expectations as all descriptions are accurate and all expectations are met.
The appartment itself (app. no 4) was adequately set-up and extremely well decorated with top of the scale material. All kitchen equipment was sufficient to help organise a meal and eat in the appartment.
The ski room is extremely useful, allowing one to quicly load and off-load equipment.
But the greatest advantage of the Chalet is its location. Difficult to beat in Villars.
Very close (100 m) to the train leading to the ski slopes and walking distance to all essential facilities (ski rental, coffee shop, restaurants, ski school, ice scating ring, mini-market etc).
In addition, the central location provided us a front-row, balcony view to the fireworks display on New Year's eve.

Overall this is a highly recommended environment for any group composition (we were 4 adults, three children aged 6-8 and a new born) and it will be difficult to find a better appartment for this price (or any price) in Villars.

Finally, the owners have added the extra touch in the pre and post rental period to make sure all our requests were met but to also make themselves available for any added needs.

We stayed as a family in apartment 4 during half term in 2013. Where do I start! The ease of entry into the apartments were simple after a long journey with the kids and to be able to park so easily outside made a huge difference.
The decor and attention to detail of Chalet Balthazar could not be better, from opening the door to the apartment everything was perfect, so stylish and so spacious, not like many other apartments we have rented, plenty of bathrooms with quality fittings and the little touches that the owner adds like the amazing bath foams after a long days skiing .... perfect! The kitchen is well equipped with absolutely everything you need if you fancy a night in, home from home .. but better!
The welcome pack was really a great touch as we arrived late at night. We awoke in the morning to find that we can could get fresh croissants from the bakery literally 2 minutes away! Although from Chalet Balthazar everything is 2 minutes away, it has a great central position in a stunning ski resort.
Thank you David for being so helpful and making our stay a delight! We will be back very soon.

We have stayed at chalet for a week during August. We took 2 apartments.
The chalet is located in the center of Villars, just behind the Main Street with all the shops and restaurants. This was great, since we could go by foot to eat and to buy stuff.
The chalet itself was clean an had everything that we needed or wanted. Including PS and games for the kids.
The kitchen was well equipped and we enjoyed having dinner at the large dinner table.
Bottom line a great vacation at a wonderful chalet.

We have just returned from spending a week at this luxurious chalet (apartment 3)
We could not fault the high standard of accommodation on offer.
The furnishings are very tasteful, the kitchen well equipped with all the mod cons.
This is a spacious , stylish delightful home from home.
So convenient for the village centre/trains/gondolas and wonderful local shops.
Stunning ! Well worth a visit.

Our family of three generations, seven adults and three children under four have just had a terrific week in apartments 3 and 5 of Chalet Balthazar. The flats are stylish and well equipped, car parking and ski storage are excellent and the owners responsive and helpful, but the unbeatable advantage is the great location a mere fifty metres or so from the train up to Bretaye, the lovely children's skiing and sledging area, and of course all the shops - never have the logistics of a winter holiday been so uncomplicated. We certainly hope to be back again in 2014. The Walkers

On the back of last year's near perfect Christmas holiday at Balthazar (apt 3, top floor), we were back this for New Year's week. As our family need increased over the course of the summer with baby n.3, we have asked David and Zani to stay in the larger, conveniently located ground floor. Fabolous! Spacious, elegant, fully equipped (the Nespresso machine a very pleasant surprise), absolutely perfect for a family with kids as you can enjoy the indoor ( dont underestimate the outdoor garden too) space, the kitchen area, the double sitting room and still have plenty of space for a quick rest or a peaceful look at the latest news. Kids particularly grateful for the selection of Wii games! Last, but certainly not least, ground floor location made it feel we were literally in the heart of Villars, without the noise but with the ease of getting in and out as easily as going down a blue piste. Last year we said "we loved Balthazar because we felt at home in the Alps", and we can only underscore once more that feeling, and look forward coming back soon.
