It’s probably no surprise that Villars sur Ollon and Les Diablerets have some luxury hotels and extremely smart chalets. But there are also modestly-priced hotels and guesthouses and no shortage of self-catering apartments. Most of the hotels also cater for weekenders as well as guests wanting to stay a full week or more.
Hotels in Villars-Gryon/Les Diablerets
Let’s start at the top: the 5 star Chalet RoyAlp Hôtel & Spa is at the bottom of one of the blue runs coming into Villars so you can usually ski to the door. Inside it has two restaurants and a spa with an indoor swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, steam room, fitness centre and relaxation area. The indoor swimming pool has an eye-catching open fire place.
The poular 4 star Eurotel Victoria has a bland name and is in rather a bland building but it is close to the centre of Villars, within 5 to 10 minutes walk of the railways station and the Roc d’Orsay cable car, and it has everything a 4 star hotel should have. Its sister hotel in Les Diablerets is the 4 star Eurotel Victoria Les Diablerets. This is located next to the ice skating rink and only 5 minutes walk from the local slopes. There are also shuttle buses to take you to the Glacier 3000 ski area.
Highly rated 3-star hotels include Swiss Historic Hotel du Pillon on the South-facing (and therefore sunny) hills above Les Bovets Station, the last stop of the mountain train before it reaches Les Diablerets; the Hotel Alpe Fleurie in the centre of Villars opposite the train station; and the Ecureuil which is also near the centre of Villars.
The Auberge de la Poste is only a 2-star hotel but is a nice looking one, in a building dating back to 1789 in the centre of Les Diablerets, less than a 5-minute walk from the train station, the lifts and cable cars, and it gets good customer reviews.

Self-Catering Apartments and Chalets in Villars-Gryon/Les Diablerets
There are some extremely smart ‘ApartHotels’ in Villars such as The Residence Panorama which has a sauna and pool. Other highly rated top-end apartments in Villars are in Chalet La Renarde and Chalet La Croix de Javernaz in Villars, and in Résidence Alpes Vaudoises in Les Diablerets. There are plenty of budget options too.
Using the accommodation finder below you can also see details of over 30 chalets for those who want to take over a whole chalet. Particularly noteworthy is the tiny, wooden-built Le P’ti Tzi-Mé. It only fits in 2 adults and 2 children, but its 100m away from the nearest lift and looks divine. But there are significantly larger chalets too.
