    Description

    Located in the heart of the Vaud Alps, on a sunny southern terrace above the Rhone Valley, the resort of Villars-sur-Ollon offers impressive views of the Dents-du-Midi, the Mont Blanc massif and Lac Léman, known in English as Lake Geneva. This makes this a wonderful base for seven nights over Christmas to explore some of the lake’s highlights from your four-star hotel.


    Lake Geneva lies between the Swiss and Savoy Alps and offers views to some of Europe’s highest peaks. Christmas Day, we enjoy lunch onboard a vintage Belle Epoch steamship and on other days, enjoy the surrounding scenery by taking the Rochers-de-Naye Cog Railway, the Glacier 3000 cable car to view the highest peaks of the Alps as well as visit the lakeside towns of Vevey, Lausanne and Montreux.


    Away from the lake we travel the valleys in first class on the Golden Pass Line, one of the region’s most scenic train journeys, and include visits to the fascinating Olympic Museum, Charlie Chaplin’s mansion and Chillon Castle which inspired poetry by Lord Byron. Join us for a ‘Bon Noel’ in this stunning corner of French speaking Switzerland.
