Les Diablerets Quick Facts
Resort: Les Diablerets
Altitude: 1151m
Ski Area: Alpes Vaudoises
Canton: Vaud
Train Station: Yes
Main Language: French

Les Diablerets, as with almost all of the other villages that make up the Alpes Vaudoises region, is a gem of a resort that somehow continues to remain under the radar of the vast majority of foreign holidaymakers to Switzerland in both the summer and the winter seasons.

Regular visitors may well think "long may this continue" because one of the beauties of Les Diablerets is its family-friendly, peaceful atmosphere and relatively quiet ski slopes. But obviously it's not just this that attracts its regulars back year after year, the scenery and setting of Les Diablerets is also magnificent, with a spectacular sweep of mountains surrounding the village from the glacier-topped heights above the Col du Pillon right round to the opposite side of the village to the south-west. You can't fail to be anything but impressed by the sheer magnitude of the Les Diablerets Massif that dominates over the village and valley floor, and it's a genuinely under-rated resort when it comes to its setting and scenery.

Les Diablerets Positives and Negatives

  • Amazing scenery - genuinely under-rated.
  • Family friendly resort and skiing.
  • Area has great sunshine record.
  • Lower slope conditions can quickly deteriorate after mid-season.

Les Diablerets The Resort Itself

Les Diablerets is not the biggest of resorts and only has a small central village area, with the majority of the town situated down in the valley bottom.

The tourist information centre is located here, along with the handful of main hotels, restaurants and bars, whilst the village's railway station is located just a small distance (about 100m) away from here alongside the river. Given the small size of the resort centre, the hotels tend to be the main option for eating and drinking, so don't come here expecting streets full of alpine bars, it's not that sort of resort.

On the opposite side of the railway station is Les Diablerets conference centre. It might sound strange for a village of such a small size to have a conference centre but it's certainly put to good use, with the resort's famous annual mountain film festival being a good example of how it's used. There are also sport facilities down in this area too, with tennis courts and a multi-sports area, as well as one of the best-located football pitches you'll ever see. An outdoor swimming pool completes the Les Diablerets sports park, all under the magnificent gaze of the Les Diablerets Massif.
