Picturesque Wadano is the setting for this row of smart two-storey timber houses which we think are a great option for families and friends wanting to retire to a place of their own. The two bedroom, two bathroom villas are modern and warm, with underfloor heating and a large room downstairs ideal for getting together; the room also has a sofa bed for a fifth and sixth person if necessary.

There are kitchen facilities inside, but you’re just a short stroll from the restaurants of Wadano – not to mention the onsen at Monemoki Hotel. The nearest ski lift is a few minutes’ walk away, and the shuttle bus picks up two minutes from your door, giving you several skiing options – as well as the convenience of heading in to Happo for dinner.

In Wadano. The shuttle buss passes just outside, which is convenient as it would be a good 10 minute walk to the Happo One ski area. The village-proper is also a 10 minute walk away, but there are also plenty of little restaurants in the Wadano area as well.

Two bedroom villas start from ¥32,000 (£185), but rise considerably during peak periods in the season. Get in contact and we’ll happily find the best possible price for you.
