So, why does the New York Times think Crans Montana is worth a visit?
"Surprisingly few international tourists visit Crans-Montana, favoring better-known Alpine resorts like Zermatt and Verbier to see and be seen. But with its upmarket designer shops, five-star hotels, Michelin-starred dining and 87 miles of downhill slopes, the word is getting out. In fact it's the most upscale resort in the Alps now surrounded by nature, wildlife and action packed weekend festivals.
Perched high above the Rhone Valley in western Switzerland on a sunny, south-facing plateau, the two-town resort offers panoramic views of the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc. With more than 250 boutiques, 60 restaurants and 30 hotels, Crans-Montana isn't lacking for après-ski activities. " The New York Times ''
Crans-Montana is an up market ski resort with wonderful panoramic views from the Matterhorn to Mont Blanc. The sunniest ski resort in Switzerland, Crans-Montana is an all year round resort with 140km of skiing, more than 150 shops and 70 restaurants, a championship 18-hole golf course and numerous popular events.
The chic ski resort is the dead center location of our 2 bedroom luxury apartment. It has a large 15 meter Indoor heated Pool and sauna inside our First Class building. The Jacuzzi in the apartment is waiting along with all views of the Matterhorn and Alps . This is a very personal bespoke furnished place with a sun terrace, ski storage, central heating, laundry machines and the off street parking .The building has a nice lounge with fireplace and a typical Swiss restaurant in the building.
There is a 5 star Spa next door (200 meters) and Thermal Baths down the road. This apartment is for 2 people only but can sleep 2 small children in the bunk beds in addition . It is VERY private and is a corner apartment overlooking the Golf Course a block away. The Ski bus arrives at the front door to ALL skiing areas – it’s free. The village is 700 meters away, a 10 Minute walk by foot. Crans is the highest 18 hole Golf Resort in the world )and it has incredible hiking and nature. Skiing is the best offering 3 different areas all connected and many bars and restaurants all the way down the slopes.
The apartment is more than a ski apartment but a cozy Chalet type environment minutes walking to the ski lifts. Included are ‘’re-chargeable’’ ski passes, where you can book your days on-line in advance to avoid waiting. The apartment has a HD TV/ 3D with loads of DVD's, Internet and Full Gourmet kitchen. Down the street the $800 a night hotel is disappointing compared to our Eagle's Nest. Price is adjustable depending on highest seasons. We’re looking for people who are neat and respectful to share .
