Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was our second time at Chalet Balthazar and we already considered our second home in the beautiful Switzerland and I hope to be a family tradition to be there every year. First, the team of Chalet Balthazar, David & Zany and their support people makes your visit smooth, informed, secure and extremely easy as you can reach them any time and they will respond immediately, the communication flows easy before the trip, during and after ! Second, Chalet Balthazar location is unbeatable! 2 minutes walking to the train & tram & bus station; walking distance to the “Boulangerie”, Migros (the supermarket), pharmacy, the skating ring which now has a great SPA, indoor and outdoor pools, kids activities. Third, the place has all you need. It’s beautifully decorated, warm, cozy; confortable beds and pillows, ample rooms with their bathroom, washer and drier, a well equipped kitchen, a modern TV, a small nice terrace and the internet runs very well. For me, is now “home”. Thank you David & Zany for making our stay a wonderful dream. I am sure we will be back ! Martha A

Hi Martha thanks for your very kind review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Chalet Balthazar 3 and that it has become your 'second home' in Switzerland. We agree the location is unbeatable and its increasing popular with our eco-conscious clients who don't want to drive when they are staying with us. The Chalet Balthazar Team look forward to welcoming you and your family back to Villars next summer for another relaxing but adventurous Swiss vacation. Kind Regards, The Chalet Balthazar Team

Thanks so much for your very kind review. We are so pleased that you were able to enjoy the garden of Chalet Balthazar 3. Unbelievably its covered in about 3 metres of snow right now so the snowballs are flying! We look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future. Many thanks, The Chalet Balthazar Team

We had a great stay at Chalet Balthazar. Team was very helpful during booking process as well as checkout. Property well located only a few steps from town yet still has benefit of being on quiet street. Super clean and well equipped. Fireplace and kitchen were great with family.

We stayed in Villars Balthazar’s apartment in August for a week as a last minute decision trying to stay out of France to avoid self isolation on returning to the U.K. We had a very lucky find with this apartment. It is beautifully equipped, with very comfortable beds and amazing showers. It was super clean and a joy for everyone to have their own bathrooms. We felt very quickly settled and relaxed immediately. The apartment is well situated for the patisserie, 1 minute away, we ate far too many goodies! Our local taxes gave us free access for the train and ski lifts. We hopped on the train and swam in mountain lakes which were stunning and refreshing. Also we all loved the thrill of go carting down the mountain and our teenagers wanted a second go! David was very welcoming and informative on what to do locally and his communication on the local eateries and activities were really appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you it was lovely to meet you and we were very grateful you allowed us to stay at such short notice.

Yes it was a stroke of good luck that we were able to accommodate you at such short notice due to Covid problems in France and it was definitely our gain to meet such a charming family.

An excellent property that is located very centrally, supported by a very responsive host and a great team behind them. Stayed at Chalet Balthazar's one bed apartment for a month. A very central location next to the railway station and the market square which was alive with entertainment and a nice bar. The apartment was nicely furnished with all the necessary modcons. The host is very responsive and resolved issues and requests that I had very quickly.

Excellent conditions. Extremely clean and well organised. Land lord is a very nice English gentleman that is very helpful and always available to lend a helping hand. An absolute must to consider if your interested in staying in the Villars area. Balthazar is strategically located in the middle of the village and about 50 meters away from the train and bus station. Environment of the Chalet is very peaceful and serene with some amazing views on the opposing high peaks of the Valais and French Alps. The Chalet comes with different flat sizes and prices. All necessary shopping and services are around you and all can be done by foot. Some excellent restaurants are also nearby and a car is not a necessity!

We stayed recently at Chalet Balthazar whilst skiing in the Swiss special Olympics. Chalet Balthazar was prefect for us and our daughter - positioned perfectly right by the train going up the mountain, central also to the shops and cafes, a beautiful and clean Swiss style accomodation with good parking. Can't recommend Chalet Balthazar enough and hope to go back and stay again in the near future. Best regards, Caryl, Lorenz and Pearl
