  • Description


    We are a Swedish/American family living in Villars-sur-Ollon Switzerland. Our daughter, is away for the winter at a specialized ski academy and needs to finish out her academic year-8th grade. We love sport, nature and travel. We have a chalet with a separate apartment (with its own entrance) that you would stay in. Its a great place to explore, and a really good location for traveling in Switzerland or Europe. We are interested in having someone from After Easter until the 14 of June

    What else ...

    Situated at 1300 m, on a sunny south-facing terrace high above the Rhone valley, the holiday resort of Villars-sur-Ollon in the heart of the Vaud Alps enjoys breathtaking views of the Dents-du-Midi and the Mont Blanc massif and as far as Lake Geneva.

    Golf course – the 18-hole golf course at 1600 m offers an impressive panorama of Mont Blanc.
    Bretaye – tarting point for numerous hiking and biking tours, and the main centre for winter sports above Villars, reached by funicular railway.
    Working salt mine in Bex – numerous galleries, shafts, staircases and vast halls: several kilometres of this 50 km long underground labyrinth are open to the public.
    Les Diablerets/Glacier 3000 – from this, the highest point in the Vaud Alps, there is a breathtaking view of the finest peaks in the Alps.
    Lac de Chavonnes, Lac de Bretaye, Lac Noir – romantic mountain lakes.
    Narrow-guage railway network from Aigle and Bex – the lines to Leysin, Les Diablerets and Villars/Bretaye provide access to the region without a car of your own.
    Montreux-Because of the exceptionally mild climate Montreux is called the capital of the Vaud Riviera. Plants associated with the Mediterranean, such as pines, cypresses and palm trees grow here. Charlie Chaplin, Freddie Mercury and several other famous people of world-renown lived and continue to live on the Vaud Riviera.

    The long, flower-bordered lake promenade which links Vevey and Montreux going all the way to Chillon Castle is simply asking to be strolled along. Cultural events, such as the Montreux Jazz Festival, as well as countless excursion options to the mountainous hinterland or on the lake make Montreux the most popular excursion and holiday destination.
