Ideal base for walking in the mountains in summer

  • 5 of 5
The apartment lived up to my high expectations. It was well furnished with comfortable chairs and beds (important after a day of walking). Everything was in good condition and clean, and the kitchen was very well equipped for a holiday rental. The view from the windows was stunning and we enjoyed watching some wonderful pink sunsets on the mountains.

Unfortunately the restaurant in the building had closed. However, as we ate out somewhere different each lunch time, we were very happy to cater for ourselves in the evenings, drinking Swiss wine, and if we felt like it, watching a film on one of the DVDs we'd brought with us.

Les Crosets was a good base for a week's holiday - there was plenty to do. At the start, when the weather was unsettled, we visited Champery, the nearby thermal baths and Sion, the old and very pretty capital of the area, where there was an excellent museum. On the way back from here we went wine tasting in the Rhone Valley.

Then on the other days we bought a daily lift pass (good value) and went walking locally, going up and down the chair lifts and cable cars (along with mountain bikers of all nationalities). One day we lunched in Avoriaz, and on another day at a small animal farm, which was fun. The mountain paths were all well marked and the scenery and mountain flowers were beautiful. It was a really relaxing, stress free holiday, and I would thoroughly recommend both the apartment and the area for a week in the summer.

A brilliant apartment for a summer outdoor holiday

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is nothing short of superb and the photos you see on the website are exactly what you get. Beautifully furnished and with a view to die for. I can guarantee that every morning you will sit on the balcony with a coffee and a fresh croissant from the nearby shop (open every day for all of the basic requirements) and marvel at the view.

The village of Les Croset provides restaurants if you want to eat out and there are some gems in the surrounding area and down in Champery. Our personal favourite was the Cantine sur Coux.

With the ski lifts running (they begin to run down in early September) you can buy the brilliant value Multipass for 1.5CHF per day per person for unlimited travel in the Portes du Soleil. And that means a lot of places to visit. Take a trip to the top of any of the adjacent peaks and amble down at ease or walk until you drop and then ride back in comfort. The range of walks, long, short, difficult and easy means there is something for everyone.

And, if you like mountain biking, and particularly if that involves throwing yourself down steep slopes then i reckon this is, quite literally, the only place you want to be.

And the beauty of it all is that from the apartment to the lifts is a five minute walk - perfect.

If you want to get in your car the drive down to Champery and more significant services in Monthey is fast and painless. there a good supermaket in Champery and a huge Co-Op on you way through Monthey that provides for everything you might want.

Touring around by car is easy, with access to the motorways close by to get to Lake Geneva and into the higher mountains to the east. So in the unlikely event you want a change of scene its easy.

In short - superb.

swiss mountains in the summer

  • 5 of 5
The picture of dents du midi mountains in the property spec was a big factor in our choice and we were not disappointed. Sitting on the balcony with a drink with this stunning view was a great way to end the day. The apt has plenty of space, and is very well maintained and equipped. The concierge is the most helpful and delightful person. You can walk straight from the door on some beautiful paths, or use the chairlift system a few minutes walk away to go over to france. We spent several days just riding the network of chairlifts and gondolas into the surrounding mountains and valleys - the summer multi pass at 1.5 euros per day is an absolute bargain. An outstanding holiday.

What a place!

  • 5 of 5
First time in my life when everything was even better than I hoped:
1. the location of the apartment building - quiet, away from the centre of the village and being the first building on the motoway in Les Crosets;
2. the apartment itself - comfortable, convenient with all the windows facing the mountains, the sunrise and sunset with NO ONE pasing by;
3. real ski in-ski out - my son never used the entrance door, but only the balcony;
4. all modern facilities - absolutely everything you need including really fast Internet connection;
5. marvelous place - good for everyone from 0 up to 99 with slopes of all categories.

I am trying to remember something negative to provide an unbiased review...but I can't. I wish I could go there again!

Owner's Response: Great review and another very happy client, thank you. The reference to the motorway should be to the road - very small as is the village, and quiet! We do ask clients for feedback and endeavour to accommodate any suggestions for improvement.This is a very special place.

Summer in Les Crosets

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in Les Crosets. The apartment is very spacious and well equipped with fantastic views of the nearby mountains. We found the village very friendly, and the local wine very good. We could imagine how cosy it must be during winter.

Stunning apartment

  • 5 of 5
This simply is an excellent apartment. It is very well equiped: 2 very comfortable bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a kitchen with everything you can desire. The view on the Dents du Midi is magnificent. It is very clean and perfectly maintained. It is situated 50-100 meters from the slopes. I would certainly recommend it to other people and I am really looking forward going back there in 2010.

Les Crosets is a small, quiet village at the very top of the mountain at a height of about 1700m.It is just in Switzerland on the border with France and in the Portes du Soleil above Champery. It boasts a fantastic array of ski lifts and easy access to the whole Portes Du Soleil. Normally you can ski in and out of the apartment. The nearest lift access is about 50 yards away and involves a short gentle ski to the first lift, beside the slope for infants. That then takes you in less than 3 minutes to the large general ski-ing area of Les Crosets. The mountain road ends in Les Crosets . There are a number of restaurants and bars,shops including two ski-hire shops and a well stocked supermarket. There is a ski school. Les Crosets area is very pretty and has a lovely location situated with mountains all around.

You can drive to Champery which is a lively and attractive town or down to the main town (Monthey) at the bottom of the mountain. It takes about 20 minutes. Lake Geneva is about 30 minutes away and the drive along the lake is absolutely stunning.You can go to Montreux where there is a statue of Freddie Mercury. The Swiss Rhone valley is nearby with lots of vineyards.

There are thermal baths nearby in Val D'illiez.
