At the foothills of the Alps, surrounded by snowy peaks and green pastures, the magical town of Villars is the perfect destination for a quiet vacation. Peace and quiet rule here, with only cowbells breaking the silence.

The town sits above the Rhône valley, north east of the beautiful Lake Geneva. At an altitude of 1250 meters, the town serves as the base for the glacier. The view of the snowy peaks is mesmerizing, their wintry white shining even in the middle of summer. The adventurous ones can enjoy a walk on the suspension bridge, over the snow filled peaks.

In the proximity, the town of Gruyères hosts the famous Gruyère cheese factory. The streets are enveloped in the familiar scent of genuine Swiss cheese.

Nearby, Lake Geneva and the resort town of Montreux, a short hop from major attractions in the area. The town looks over the snowy, frozen peaks of Glacier 3000, and even Mont Blanc in France can be seen from here. Hiking trails crisscross the area, and a walk through the lush, green forests, fills the lungs with fresh mountain air, the eyes asking for more. One of the recommended stops on the way is Gstaad, a typical mountain town of wooden houses, flowers adorning every window.

A hike to Glacier 3000, the name suggesting its height above sea-level, is not to be missed. An enormous ice plain, even in summer, to walk on, or even better – to ride a dog sleigh!

To anyone dreaming to take a break from our little country's scorching heat – the Swiss landscapes will award you with peace, quiet and much cooler temperatures.
