About the property

Chalet with nice views for 16 persons near ski lifts and funicular

Built in 1923 'Combaz7' may be the oldest `Bed and Breakfast` left in Montana. First named 'La Clairière', it was then called 'Cité Joie' before being renamed last year to ' Combaz7 ' after the street address.

This chalet situated at 1,500 metres altitude and enjoying the fantastic views over the Rhone Valley including tops such as the Weisshorn (4505), the Matterhorn / Cervin (4477), is a perfect base for your ski holidays in Crans-Montana. The chalet is located close to the Montana funiculair station and within easy reach to the ski lifts with a 5 minute free shuttle bus transfer to either Violettes or Signal.

The large size of the chalet makes it suitable for extended family gatherings and smaller company group reunions. A Gallery Annexe linked to the house but with separate entrance is not included in this rental.

Bed and Breakfast from 1923: Built originally in 1923 as a Bed and Breakfast, it is today during the winter season rented as a high-end ski chalet to large families or company groups. During the low season it becomes an art residency where artists come to seek inspiration, work and exhibit their art.

The chalet has gone through extensive refurbishments to reach today's modern standards and contemporary style.

Property description: The chalet has 8 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 1 large semi-professional kitchen, 3 smaller kitchens, a sauna and 2 large common areas including 1 TV room, 1 loft style living room

The bedrooms:

- 2 bedrooms have a queen size bed (140cmx200cm)

- 3 bedrooms with twin beds (90x200/bed)

- 3 bedrooms have adjustable bunk beds (single, double, triple)

The bathrooms:

- 3 bathrooms have both shower and bath tub

- 1 shower rooms on the ground floor

How to get there: As the chalet is located at walking distance to the the Montana funicular station, transfer from Geneva airport is easily done by public transportation only.

The chalet has 4 outdoor parking place but the use of a car is not necessary within the resort as a free shuttle bus is available during the high season.

Although ski lifts of Montana and Violette can be reached by foot, it will take you only 5 minutes to reach them by bus .

The centre of Montana is reachable within less than 10 minutes walk through a shopping alley and the center of Crans within less than 20 minutes walk along the lakes.

Chalet chalereux spacieux et très bien équipé dans une très belle station de skie

  • 5 of 5

On a passé de très belle vacances familiales dans ce grand chalet très bien agencé , très confortable et bien situé. Parking assuré, mais pas besoin de prendre la voiture. Le service de bus impeccable et juste à côté . On beaucoup apprécié la cuisine industriel , le sauna et les espaces en commun . Chambres et salles de bain confortables et propres . Malgré le manque de neige Crans Montana nous a offert de nombreuses balades , un expo de masques aux art'collections et même une excursion à Wiler dans la vallée du Lötschental qu'on a adorée (visite de l'ateliers et musée de la famille qui garde la tradition de masques!) . Station ensoleillé . Commerces à proximités . On peut certainement conseiller à nos amis et connaissances!

Crans Montana is a ski-resort perched on a south-facing slope. The ski area ranges from 1,476 metres (nearly 5,000 feet) to 3,000 metres (nearly 10,000 feet). Crowned by the Plaine-Morte glacier, the vertical drop is a respectable 1524 metres (5000 feet). The resort was the location for the 1987 World Alpine Skiing Championships and the World Alpine Ski Cup Finals of 1992 and 1998. Every year a number of FIS World Cup events are also staged here including men's and women's downhill, super-G, giant slalom and slalom. The high proportion of gentle slopes make this a great choice for beginners, while the higher peaks are plenty enough to keep the more experienced skiers happy. Crans Montana is divided into 4 main areas with excellent connections and which offer a broad variety in types of skiing, from casual skiing at Cry d'Err to the adventurous slopes of Violettes, all under the remarkably sunny weather this station is famous for.

Golf: The Omega European Masters is one of the most prestigious golf competitions played on European soil. Located at Crans-Montana in the heart of the Swiss Alps, the Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club is indisputably the most spectacular course on the European Tour schedule. This internationally-renowned golf competition, played on the same course for the 65th time this year, has seen players such as Spain’s Severiano Ballesteros, José Maria Olazabal and Sergio Garcia, Scotland’s Colin Montgomerie, South Africa’s Ernie Els and Britain’s Lee Westwood, currently the world’s no. 2, win the coveted trophy.
