Gryon is a beautiful village that has successfully managed to open itself up to tourism whilst also managing to remain authentically rustic in style. Like so many of the Alpes Vaudoises resorts, Gryon prides itself on its status as one of Switzerland's most family-friendly resorts.
Gryon's hotels and apartments generally make it a cheaper alternative to it's much better known neighbour - Villars. So if you fancy skiing the pistes of Villars, but at a reduced cost, then Gryon is without doubt worth considering. It's not just the accommodation that tends to be slightly cheaper, but also the bars and restaurants. The ski area links with Villars and Les Diablerets and offers 225km of pistes.
