One of Europe's first ever ski resorts, this Swiss resort helped launch the popularity of winter sports during the "Roaring Twenties". The small rack railway dates back to the resort's origins, as does the elegant hotel that is home to the Club Med. With its outdoor heated swimming pool in a beautiful, south-facing setting, its Turkish bath and speciality restaurant, the hotel offers warm and cosy comforts. Villars-sur-Ollon has something for the whole family, from action-packed skiing to tasting local produce and relaxing strolls to nearby Lake Geneva. Altitude 1,300 metres (4,260 ft).
