Villa Alpen

Shiga Kogen, Nagano

We are not a brand-new, five-star hotel, but you can feel really at home. We are a small and cozy hotel

and put great emphasis on skiing.

We're located in the midst of the Sun Valley ski area and our guests can put on ski boots in their own
room and ski into the lifts just out of the door. The minute you're outside of our hotel, you can enjoy
skiing or snowboarding. Then more than 60 ski lift and gondolas join together,so you can go to 12 ski
stations called [ski circus].

Villa Alpen is owned by a professional skier, who has national ski instructor license of France and Italy
and is a member of Professional Ski Instructors Association of Japan, with the convenience of the
skier upmost in the minds of the owner.

Relax in the large public baths after a day on the slopes and savor the wonderful meals, while talking
and enjoying the after-ski scene.

    "It is 50 metres to the lifts and if you want snow and choice of dozens of runs this is the place to be.
    The lodge rooms were basic but comfortable.
    The owners and staff did everything to make our stay very enjoyable"
    By Colin
