FANTASTIC VIEW, TRANQUILLITY AND LOTS OF SPACE- VERY CLOSE TO CRANS-MONTANA

Mollens Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Large garden, 4 bedrooms, child-friendly

The detached chalet (www.chalet-franz.ch) is furnished simply but lovingly & purposefully, and offers space & relaxation for families, couples or small groups. It lies at the border of a wood just above the hamlet of Mollens VS on an altitude of 1135 m above sea level, at a street with light traffic that is also easily accessible during winter. It is also easily reachable with public transportation (the bus stop of the route Sierre-Crans-Montana is 7 walking minutes from the house). The location is tranquil, during the night you only hear the rushing of the nearby stream & the concert of the crickets in the summer. You can discover the extensive offer of sports & leisure activities of Crans-Montana and use the house as a starting point to discover the canton of Valais. Or simply stay at home in the large garden or on the sunny balcony & relax while the children play on the property or inside the house: inside you find games, toys & books for all ages. In short: The ideal resort for all seasons!

Heating: The entire house can be heated easily. The living/dining room and the balcony room comprise of heating radiators that are turned on with a switch. For colder days there is an additional tiled stove (oil heating) in the living/dining room, from which warm air channels lead into the wet rooms and the bedrooms. Bedroom 3 is heated electrically.

Children and teenagers: For children and teenagers of all ages many toys, games and puzzles can be found in the Chalet Franz. Also picture books and German children's and teen novels (in German) are available abundantly. A box with old fabrics invites to build a hut in the garden. There is also a handicrafts box and books....small children find a small table, a little bench and 3 chairs made for their size. 3 high chairs are also available. The blue wash tub can be used as a bathtub for your baby. Additionally available: a snail-shaped swing set, building bricks, large cuddly toys and a play shop ... In bedroom 1 there is a cot.

TOP AUSSTATTUNG UND LANDSCHAFT IN TOLLER LAGE.

  • 5 of 5
Wir, 2 Erw. 35 Jahre und 2 Kinder, 4 und 6 Jahre waren im Sommer 09 für 14 Tage im Chalet Franz. Was für die Kinder am Haus super war: Natürlich der viele Platz, die kleine Kinderwerkstatt, der 3 Minuten entfernte Bach und die vielen Spiele, Kinderbücher und Spielsachen vor Ort.

Es gab auch unmengen von interessanten Büchern für Erwachsene: viel Literatur über die örtliche Flora und Fauna, Wanderkarten und Routen, Krimis, Romane, Kochbücher, fremdsprachige Literatur. (man verschätzt sich leicht, aber ich würde auf 16 laufende Meter Bücher insgesamt tippen)

Die Gesellschafts- und Geschicklichkeitsspiele waren sortiert nach Kinder- und Jugentlich/Erwachsenen und es war ein wirklich großer Schrank voll (vielleicht 40 insgesamt?), dazu Bauklötze, Fingerpuppen und so weiter.

Das Haus eignet sich auf jeden Fal für einen längeren Aufenthalt, sogar auch mit vielen Regentagen (wobei wir nur schönes Wetter hatten :-)
Ach, viele Radios, 1 Fernseher und 1 Computer mit Internetanschluss und Drucker sind auch da und dürfen benutzt werden!

Außerdem gab es ein ausführliches Handbuch zum Haus und der Umgebung, viele Dinge waren beschriftet, die Nummer einer Dolmetscherin lag bereit, Ortsplan, Wanderrouten... alles da. Bei uns blieben keine Fragen offen.

Fragen die wir im Vorfeld hatten wurden umgehend und zuvorkommend beantwortet. die Vermieterin hat uns sogar extra-Wanderrouten für unsere Bach-verrückten Kinder rausgesucht und sehr brauchbar aufgemalt. Das find ich total toll!

Ich habe das Haus schon allen Freunden empfohlen und tue es auch hier. Der Ausblick ist grandios, der Wald beginnt vor der Tür, man kann tolle Ausflüge zum Gletscher, Talsperre, Grotten, unterirdischen See, Bergseen oder in die Städte machen. Und wandern! Tolle Landschaft. Auch mit Bussen kommt man fast überall hin. Eine Haltestelle in ca 7 Geh-Minuten.

Kleiner Tipp für kleine Kinder: das Wasserspiel in der Fußgängerzone in Sierre (15 Minuten mit dem Auto? oder mehr?) als unser Kinder das entdeckt hatten, wollten sie jeden Tag hin: stundenlang nackig durch die Strahlen rennen, während wir Eltern in einem der 2 Straßencafes in unmittelbarer Nähe entspannen.

Fazit: Sehr schönes Haus mit Charakter und Geschichte, top ausgestattet in toller Umgebung mit vielen Freizeitmöglichkeiten und mit einer sehr netter und zuvorkommender Vermieterin - Sehr empfehlenswert.

TRAUMLAGE MIT TOLLEM GARTEN

  • 5 of 5
Noch bevor wir mit unseren Kindern (6 und 2) und den Grosseltern in die Ferien starteten war klar, dass dies ein Glücksgriff war, denn die Vermieterin war schon bei der Kontaktaufnahme extrem hilfsbereit und freundlich.

Der Ausblick vom Chalet ist grandios, der überdachte Sitzplatz mit Bergsicht eine Wucht. Ein Paradies für die Kinder, Spiele und Bücher für jedes Alter. Das Beste für unsere Kleinen war der riesige Garten, wo sie sich richtig austoben konnten. Sogar Kinderstühlchen und Planschbecken für Badestunden sind vorhanden. Ausserdem ein toller Bastelfundus, was alles übertrifft, was wir je in Ferienhäusern gefunden haben!

Da die Grosseltern mit uns in die Ferien fuhren, war uns wichtig, dass sich jeder auch einmal zurückziehen konnte - durch das grosszügige Wohnzimmer, ein zusätzliches Balkonzimmer mit Sitzgelegenheiten und die vielen Gartensitzplätze war das absolut kein Problem.

In zehn Minuten ist man in Crans/Montana, wo alle im Kletterpark, beim Tretbootfahren oder Minigolfen auf ihre Kosten kommen. Dort kann man auch sonntags im Migros oder Coop Lebensmittel einkaufen, an Werktagen braucht man nur einen kleinen Spaziergang zum Dorfladen von Mollens zu machen, auch dort kann man frisches Brot zum Frühstück und alles Nötige bekommen.

Ein Geheimtipp für Kinder ist tatsächlich das Wasserspiel in Sierre (wir hatten das in früheren Bewertungen gelesen).

Man merkt, dass das Chalet Franz innen wie aussen top in Schuss gehalten wird. Alles im Haus ist sauber, bestens organisiert und leicht zu finden.

Es gibt eine riesige Menge an Stadtplänen, Reiseführern, Veranstaltungstipps der Region usw. in verschiedenen Sprachen, und dank Internetanschluss lassen sich aktuelle Daten schnell nochmals abrufen. Für uns besonders eindrückliche Ausflugsziele: der unterirdische See in St-Léonard, das Bergpanorama mit auch für die Kleinen machbaren Wanderwegen von Leukerbad aus, abendlicher Bummel durch Sion mit Lichtspektakel "son et lumière".

Fazit: Für uns wirklich das beste Ferienhaus, das wir je hatten. Absolut empfehlenswert auch als gemeinsames Quartier für befreundete Familien! Wir können uns auch gut vorstellen, im Winter wiederzukommen und das Skigebiet auszunutzen.

TRAUM-SKIURLAUBSWOCHE

  • 5 of 5
Schon bei der Ankunft fühlten wir uns im Chalet Franz sofort sehr wohl und wie zu Hause oder bei Freunden. Das Chalet ist sehr gemütlich und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Die Ausstattung ist gut organisiert und die Lage traumhaft mit Blick in die Berge und kurzer Anfahrtszeit ins Skigebiet - wir hatten eine Traum-Skiurlaubswoche - absolut perfekt!

SKIURLAUB IM CHALET FRANZ

  • 5 of 5
Wir hatten das Chalet in der ersten Januarwoche mit 8 Personen gemietet.
Das Chalet ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und sehr ordentlich. Das nahe
gelegende Ski-Gebiet crans montana gab unser gemischten Gruppe aus Ski-und Snowboardfahrern wunderbare Möglichkeiten. In allem waren wir sehr zufrieden und würden jederzeit wieder ferien im Chalet Franz machen.

Mollens is a pretty, small Valais village in marvellous panoramic location with about 800 inhabitants. Next to other things you find a village square, a small grocery store, two restaurants, a hotel, a church and a playground for children. It is a tranquil, sedate place - as opposed to the known tourist resort of Crans-Montana in 7 km. Crans-Montana, located on a sun terrace with five lakes above the Rhone Valley, is famous for its wonderful view of the Valais Alps with numerous mountains over 4000 metres - including the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc. The climate is very healthy, this is why there are many renowned high altitude clinics. The village has transformed into a fashionable, vibrant tourist resort, that is considered as one of the most attractive winter and summer sports areas in Switzerland.

Mollens is located in the middle of Valais - the ideal starting point for tours in the entire canton! Further information: www.chalet-franz.ch

Other Activities: Cross-country skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, snowshoeing, tobogganing, Minigolf

Golf: Golfing has a long tradition in Crans-Montana: On the high plateau of Crans you find, among others, the 18- hole golf course Severiano Ballesteros (formerly called Plan-Bramois) with a magnificent view. Here the international elite meets for a golf tournament (Omega European Masters) every year. That is no coincidence as the course has been elected to be the best golf course in the country by Swiss golf professionals. The specialist journals Golf Monthly and Golf Magazine even describe hole No. 7 as one of the 40 prettiest golf holes in the world!

Also the golf course Jack Nicklaus with 9 holes is very popular. Additionally, there are two more golf courses in Crans-Montana (also suitable for beginners).

Ski: Crans-Montana-Aminona is a unique winter sports area: thanks to its 140 km of ski runs and the 25.000 m2 snow park, skiers as well as snow boarders really get their money's worth. The skiing area reaches until the glacier of Plaine Morte on an altitude of 3000 m. Directly above the tree line the runs are wide and open, ideal for beginners. But there are also runs in deep snow. At the La-Toula chairlift advanced skiers will find their challenge. Especially popular are the wide Carving runs and the valley descent over the Piste Nationale (venue of the Ski World Cup races), which is the longest in the region with a length of 12 km. The golf courses transform into a paradise for cross-country skiers and walkers during winter time. Next to the classic cross-country runs there is an extra run for skaters.
