You will feel at home away from home in this beautiful, 1 bedroom and one bath apartment, with the most stunning endless views over the Swiss Alps. Just steps away from all the connected ski lifts.
The town offers you a smaller version of Rodeo Drive with stores from Louis Vuiton and Hermes... the movie theater and some of the best shopping, bars, restaurants, grocery stores in all Switzerland.
The two neighboring resorts of Crans and Montana are situated at an altitude of 1500 m on a sun-drenched plateau high above the Rhone Valley. Together they form one of the biggest holiday destinations in Switzerland. These twin towns have much to offer, including an impressive view of the chain of mountain peaks from the Matterhorn to Mont Blanc and a particularly wide program of activities all year round.
Idyllic mountain village or alpine town? Crans-Montana embodies both and combines all the comforts of a modern holiday resort with an expansive natural landscape and panoramic views of the Alps. The modern side of Crans-Montana offers the most extensive alpine shopping for miles around. It also boasts a renowned cultural and convention center; and a wide range of accommodations. As a venue for major sporting events, and with a reputation as a golfing Mecca, Crans-Montana draws visitors from all over the world. Commune with nature in this family-friendly resort, where you can enjoy five swimming lakes; walks through aromatic mountain forests along an extensive network of footpaths; and cozy fondue evenings in rustic inns.
Crans-Montana is about two hours away from Geneva International Airport and can easily be accessed by train/bus. The bus stops steps away from the apartment.
In addition to well-known sports like hiking, tennis and squash, Crans-Montana has facilities for canyoning, mountain climbing, water skiing and paragliding. The attractive skiing areas of the Plaine Morte glacier plateau are also ideal for summer hiking. Particular summer favorites are the five swimming lakes right next to the resort.
Crans-Montana has a long golfing tradition. The 18-hole Severiano Ballesteros Golf Course with its breath-taking views is situated on the high plateau of Crans. The international elite meets here every year for golfing tournaments. Crans is the yearly host of the famous European Golf Masters.
The ski slopes stretch from the high plateau up to the Plaine Morte Glacier at 3000 m. Directly beyond the edge of the forest the trails are broad and open, ideal for beginners and deep-snow skiers. Advanced skiers will take the chairlift to La Toula to find a really challenging descent. Particularly popular are the broad carving trails and the valley descent down the Piste Nationale which, at 12 km, is the longest in the region.
In Winter the golf courses become a paradise for cross-country skiers and hikers. In addition to classic cross-country ski trails, there is also an extra one especially for skaters. On your hike, stop at one of the many warming huts to enjoy a hot beverage while wrapped up in a blanket soaking in the panoramic view of the Alps!

I was born and currently living in the wonderful city of Bern the capitol.I am retired and I specially love to travel and spend sometime in America due to my daughter living in Los Angeles and La Quinta.
Nadia de Winter purchased this apartment in 1996
I choose Crans Montana due to all the activities all year around and the convenient location right at the border to Italy and France .In the winter the skiing and the summer endless hiking trails and specially golfing. It is impossible to talk about Crans-Montana without mentioning its magnificent golf courses. The Plan-Bramois course was voted the best course in Switzerland by the Swiss professional golfers. The specialised magazines Golf Monthly and Golf Magazine classify its seventh hole as one of the 500 finest in the world. The Jack Nicklaus course, for its part, is classified third in the finest Swiss golf courses. Here, nature plays its part… The most important Swiss tournament, the Omega European Masters, has also chosen Crans-Montana for its major annual event.
The benefits are the location being close to the Italian and French border...wish to have an Italian espresso in Milan... do so within 2 hours by train along the Lago Maggiore through the Simplon...or want see the Mont Blanc in Chamonix...2 hours and you are there. Also in the summer don't miss the famous Jazz festival in Montreux at the lake of Geneva...Also Crans Montana is known to have the most sunshine in the year.
My husband and I spent a week here in August on our honeymoon. Nadia was such a help with getting us directions and when we got there we had maps and information about the area. The first day we took a free bus to Crans-Montana to get groceries for the week. Honestly, if you like to cook/grill, the kitchen has everything! We didn't eat out once because we enjoyed our meals on the balcony. There were games to play (we liked scrabble the most) and plenty of trails to hike. Another thing we loved was the bathtub. The setting is cozy, relaxing, the view is breathtaking--I suggest waking up once to see the sunrise. I highly recommend staying a week here with a book and someone you love. It also be great for a small family that enjoys the outdoors.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this apartment outside the Crans-Montana area. We were very satisfied with the warm gifts that we recieved upon coming into this apartment as well as the spectacular views. Busses in this area are free into the Crans-Montana towns which we utilized every day, although I highly suggest having a rental car if you want to stay at this apartment. Bring or rent mountain bikes also. Make sure to visit the Plain-Morte glacier while in the area. It is breathtaking. If you love the outdoors, this is the place to be!
The apartments are a little hard to find if you don't know the area. Also, make sure to bring change for the laundry if you want to use it. Laundry is kind of hard to find. It is on one of the bottom floors of this highrise.
We just spent 1 week in this cute apartment with the most stunning views over the Swiss Alps...there is the gondola 2 min from the apartment which connects you to the rest of all the skiing/hiking in the Crans Montana area.We loved it and want to come back..specially the owners are very helpful and the unit was immaculate.Also the village has great restaurants and very high end shopping possibilities...golf, ice skating,and even a casino... when you are lucky you might see a ice hockey game in the middle of the village at night ...but specially the morning coffee in the patisseries we will miss the most.
very close to the center of Europe golfing
