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.
