From May to October, the resorts Villars-Gryon-Les Diablerets offer you the possibility to personalise your program by selecting from a large range of more than 35 activities and facilities.
The resorts of Villars is located in the heart of the Vaud Alps on a natural balcony with southern exposure at an altitude of 1300 meters.
The resorts offer sports, relaxation and cultural activities for families and visitors of all ages, far from pollution and noise. Every holiday awaits you in an idyllic setting with a breathtaking panorama extending from Lake Geneva to Mont-Blanc.
The Villars-Gryon resort area has carefully protected its village ambience, despite strong tourism development, thanks largely to building codes and policies intended to maintain architectural unity. Old ancestral chalets sit alongside recent constructions in wood, all of which preserves a harmony that blends perfectly into the natural setting. The presence of numerous protected zones also allows nature to remain intact. Guests therefore find a typical mountain atmosphere, that lends itself to relaxation and renewal with a superb view.
The international schools in Villars and Gryon enjoy an excellent reputation which dates back a hundred years to the beginning of the 20th century, which has made the resort a privileged hub for quality education for countless students from many cultures. From the 37 schools that existed prior to the second World War, five top class, French and English medium schools remain, hosting more than 700 students annually from 3 to 18 years old, who either live in the hostels or visit temporarily for various courses (summer camps).
