Les Crosets Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Slopes nearby (50 m), snow assured, Les Crosets, open fireplace
The apartment is located in the highest Swiss ski resort in the ski arena Portes du Soleil on 1670m. It is located in a chalet with 8 apartments. Our apartment has a terrace with direct view of the Dents du Midi massif. The furnishing is lovingly and individually designed and tailored to suit 4 persons. Kitchenette (Season 2013: New fitted kitchen) and living room blend harmoniously with each other with the fireplace as a focal point. On the large round dining table you can prepare yourself for the adventurous skiing day with a leisurely breakfast in the sunny morning. Coffee maker, stove, oven, dishwasher, toaster and kettle, as well as a Rechaud for the traditional cheese fondue are available. In the bedroom there are two single beds and a bunk bed. These are suitable for people with allergies. A car parking space and a heated, lockable ski storage room are available. No pets! We have deliberately avoided a TV in favour of an intensive relaxation.
Locality and surroundings: The place has still largely preserved its charm as a mountain village, which originally consisted of several pastures.
There are several restaurants in the locality. Daily needs can be purchased locally.
However extended après-ski is something that one searches in vain here.
The variety of restaurants and shops is continuously being increased!
The nearest town is Monthey, located in the Rhone Valley and is about 30 km from Lake Geneva.
Sightseeing / culture: Les Crosets is well suited as a starting point for day trips especially outside of the ski season.
Lake Geneva naturally lets you explore with Geneva, Lausanne and Montreux.
Sion is also a worthwhile destination. Those interested in culture will not miss out the famous museum Fondation Pierre Gianadda and many other cultural activities during their visit to Martigny.
If you want to go high up, you can also pay a visit to the mighty Mont Blanc and Chamonix over the St. Bernard Pass.
Sports and recreation: In the nearby hamlet of Val d' Illiez there is a newly expanded and renovated thermal spa.
In the summer this is an excellent starting point for beautiful hikes.
Mountain bikers also come at their own cost, thanks to a large signposted road network.
Even some chairlifts are in operation during the summer season for the downhill freaks!
- pets not allowed

The apartment was bought in 1982 by the families Steinweller and Kuhnke. Meanwhile, Dieter Köhrer (son-in-law of the family) takes care of the rental. We live in the Karlsruhe area and rent the place exclusively for private purposes, in addition to personal use.
For three generations the apartment has become an epitome of skiing in a great ski area and with unlimited possibilities! The apartment is located in the ski resort Les Crosets, so you won’t need a car during the entire holiday. Shops, restaurants, and of course, the slopes are within walking distance and only a very short distance away!
Our apartment can be reached in 4.5 hours from Karlsruhe. The journey from the highway to the apartment (of almost 1700m altitude) takes about 20 minutes.
Before and after the day of skiing or hiking and excursion tours in summer or extensive mountain biking tours the view of the Dents du Midi massif is simply indescribable!
In summer, the terrace is ideal for sunbathing by the tolling sound of cowbells.
