About jonathan rose

We are a professional family, a barrister and a headhunter from London with 2 children.

jonathan rose purchased this apartment in 2007

Why jonathan rose chose Ollon

Villars is really easy to get to - 2 trains per hour from Geneva airport to Aigle then a taxi up the mountain. Excellent in winter and summer.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a beautiful apartment well equipped with stunning views. Far from being a rental apartment it is our families second home but regrettably we cant use it as much as we would like! You can ski in and out avoiding the lift queue and the train. There is a great range of skiing both for beginners and advanced skiers. There are wide pisted slopes and an excellent range of off piste runs for those who want to be more daring. At Diableret it is possible to ski off piste from the Glacier, though a guide is recommended. Within an hour you can drive around to to Verbier or Gstaad. In the summer the resort is really popular, you can hire bikes, swim, hike, para glide, white water rafting or sail on the lake in the wonderful clean air.

Owner's Response: Strictly speaking I suppose it's accurate to say not ski in ski out - it does take 2 mins 20 seconds from leaving the chalet to putting your skis on, a littler longer getting back !

Beautiful home in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely chalet in Villars. The home was exceptionally clean and beautifully furnished. With all the beds and bathrooms, we had plenty of room for our seven family members. We had fun watching a movie using the projector and amazing surround sound audio. The owner was always prompt in answering our questions and was very helpful. The chalet has incredible views and is located in such a beautiful little mountain village. Since we were there in the summer, we took advantage of the train and gondola rides that were free after paying the tourist tax. (Just a note, the tourist tax office has moved and is now in the same building as the train station and post office.) We loved our time in this chalet and would highly recommend it!

Superb home away from home, in the mountains...

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this stunning apartment. Absolutely every care has been taken to make this a superb home away from home in the mountains. Even the now appeared on cue!

The apartment is large and with three bath/shower rooms perfect or either a large family, group of friends or even two couples who like the space to spread out!

The chalet apartment is wonderfully well equipped, with everything one might possibly need. The sonos,digital projector, screen and subscription to Netflix a great addition to the books, games and DVDs available.

We love the location. A short walk to the slopes from which it is an easy ski down to the Roc d'Orsay telecabin, with wonderful views.

The rental, apartment information and customer service is clear and well organised, and the owner responsive to any questions which might arise.

We shall definitely visit again, although we might try a different time of year to make the most of the local walks and the fantastic balcony. We enjoyed the small mountain restaurant at La Verneyre.

Highly recommended...
