Bains de Villars

Swimming and relaxing with a view in Villars

Apr 21, 2017

The famous resort in the Vaud alps expands its sports center, adding a wellness facility with panoramic views, and a new swimming pool.

The outdoor pool is heated to 36 °C and equipped with water jet massage seats, from where one can admire the Dents-du-Midi from a relaxed position in the warm water. Indoors, there’s a 25 meter swimming pool with a temperature of 27 °C, and more options for perfect relaxation, such as a panoramic bio sauna, the first of its kind in Western Switzerland with a moderate temperature of 60 °C, a hotter (80°C-100°C) Finnish sauna and an ice-cold water. A steam bath and an oriental hammam (45 °C) complete the offer together with a resting room. The ambiance is sober and rustic, favoring stone and rough wood, in contrast with the building’s modern glass facade.

The interior part of the new sports center of Villars as well as the outdoor wellness pool are open to the public as of April. Other works being executed in the outdoors part, such as a pool with a 100 m long toboggan, should be completed by this summer. The entire site is accessible to people with reduced mobility.
