Resort guide to Les Diablerets - Switzerland

Charming ski village with unhurried, friendly atmosphere. Access to glacier skiing

Les Diablerets resort guide - a general overview

Les Diablerets is a quiet resort that has not been spoilt by a mass flood of tourism. The village tries to ensure that guests receive a first class service in all its establishments and attractions. There are two areas of local slopes and there is also a Glacier. The Meilleret side of Les Diablerets enables you to get to the neighbouring resort of Villars which makes for a surprinsingly large interlinked ski area. There is also a snowboard park, which has 3 half-pipes. Off the slopes, the apres ski scene is fairly quiet with a few bars and a couple of nightclubs. If you don't fancy a late night however, or if you are with a young family, there is an ice rink and a swimming pool. Restaurants in Les Diablerets mainly serve traditional cuisine. There is a wonderful relaxed and unhurried atmosphere and we strongly recommend ski holidays in Les Diablerets for families or for those just looking to get away from it all.
