We stayed in late January for a week. Perfect for families (with older children) or 2 couples as the bedrooms are quite separate. Lovely big rooms, light and airy. We had a very lovely view of the birch trees. The staff were very helpful with advice on local restaurants, ground arrangements etc. We ate out nearly every night and there...

We stayed in a two bedroom villa in late December 2016. We were very impressed with the facilities and service provided. The unit was very clean and modern. The king size bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable and there were no complaints from the two children upstairs. The front room had no heater so we moved the portable...

After Koharu Resorts that i stayed in last year, we decided on Gakuto Villas who are owned by the same group. Clean, spacious, well equipped, warm lodging that makes the whole experience at Hakuba heavenly. If you ever book a stay here, pack light, you dont need much as you will find that you are almost at home.

I had a week in the Gakuto villas with my wife and 3 kids, and we had a great stay. The villas are each a great size, accommodating 5 of us and all of our ski gear very comfortably. The only downside is they are quite close together so you need to remember to pull the curtains for any privacy....

“We had Villa02, which received a bit of noise on the Saturday night with revelling skiiers heading home - perhaps the higher numbers, off the street, would not suffer this. But I only mention it for people who would prefer absolute quiet - we loved being so close to the bus stop!”
