ABOUT CRANS-MONTANA
Crans-Montana is one of Switzerland’s big, world-famous ski resorts, occupying the sunniest plateau in the Alps, facing south over the Rhône valley with a spectacular panorama over some of the most beautiful peaks in the Alps, such as the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc. Crans-Montana offers a particularly wide range of activities all year round. Along with Verbier and St Moritz, it’s also one of the glitziest, with what the local tourist office here likes to call 'the finest shopping in the Alps'. The resort actually comprises three villages, Crans-sur-Sierre, Montana and, out on a limb, Aminona; the agglomeration sprawls for more than 2km between Crans, to the west, and Montana, to the east. Skiing takes second place to the round of wining and dining embarked upon by fashionable aficionados of Crans-Montana’s affluent social life – although the resort does have the advantage of access to year-round skiing on the Plaine Morte glacier, way up above 3000m. The entire ski area here includes a total of 30 lifts and over 140 km of trails. 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. Skiing aside, the place is best known for hosting the European Masters golf tournament every September. Second only to the British Open for prestige and top names, Crans’s scenic course – “by far the most spectacular tournament site in the world” according to Greg Norman – was redesigned in 1999 by Seve Ballesteros, and now boasts fiendishly complex upturned-saucer greens, which led one frustrated player to describe playing a round as “having eighteen teeth pulled one by one”.

Crans-Montana is about two hours away from either Geneva or Milan International Airports and can easily be accessed by train and then by bus or taxi from the nearest train station at Sierre. The bus from Sierre stops steps away from the apartment.



Please email me for additional information, pictures, availability, and travel tips to Crans-Montana! Also, please know that 'last-minute reservations' get a 20% discount off of the regular weekly rate! This only applies to 7-night stay reservations booked within 10 days of the arrival date.

                                We had a great time in Philippe's family apartment. Everything was spotless and the location is super convenient to skiing, restaurants, and shops. We didn't do any cooking, but appreciated the coffee capsules and the spaciousness of not being cooped up in a single hotel room. If we return to Crans we will definitely rent Philippe's place again.

                                The apartment completely met all our needs as a family of five. It was exactly as advertised. There was plenty of room for all of us, the apartment was immaculate, fully furnished with all the amenities (WIFI, dishwasher, washer, cable TV, fireplace, etc) needed to make our stay comfortable, and the location was superb. We were able to walk to the ski lifts and the grocery store is across the street! Philippe was extremely helpful in ensuring that our check-in/out process was super smooth. Not only would I recommend this property to others, I will look to return myself.

                                The apartment in Crans was in the centre of town which was very handy as we parked the car in a nearby parking station and did not need to go back to it until we left. The ski lifts are walking distance from the apartment so it was very easy to manage with 2 adults and 3 older children getting to and from the ski slopes. There are plenty of shops in the very close proximity which have relatively long opening hours (even on Christmas day for some) so this made it an easy place to stay. There are also other attractions in the town when you don't feel like skiing you can always explore the area on foot. The apartment is clean and well maintained and the owner was very helpful with instructions so there were no hassles in either renting or getting into the apartment. We would recommend it to friends and relatives.

                                The apartment was perfect. Phillipe was wonderful and very helpful. We even had a surprise of a local wine bottle. I loved the fact that the TV room was separated from the living area so the grown ups could have a real conversation!. The bedrooms area was separated too with a door so it was quiet. Great location. If I have to say something to improve, it will be just the dust in the curtains, but it didn't bother me. I will not recommended for handicap people since you have to go 4 steps ups to the elevator. Other than that it is perfect for everyone! My boys 12 and 10 years old loved it too.

                                Owner response: Thank you Lola and Family for your comments! The sheer curtains tend to attract more dust during the Winter months because of the central heating radiators behind them. All curtains in the apartment are washed twice a year in early December and then again in June. I will see that they also get a third wash perhaps mid Winter season in February. Thank you again for your comments! I hope to welcome you again at LA RESIDENCE in the near future. Philippe Rey Proprietor

                                Everything about our stay in Crans-Montana was wonderful. I felt like we had our own personal guide to Crans in the owner. Philippe guided us with helpful emails and suggestions from where to eat to how to get from the airport to the train and to the final destination of Crans. LOOK NO FARTHER for a destination that meets the requirements of fun for all. The apartment is clean, warm, and cozy, very comfortable for 4 adults and 2 children. You will find it a short walk to the beginner ski hill for the children and even shorter walk to the main lift for wonderful alpine skiing. Everything that is written about the area is true. The mountain was exciting to ski, the food so delicious, and the scenery is breathtaking. We took one day trip to visit Zermatt, easy to do from this centrally located property. I highly recommend this rental - I hope to be back again.

                                We had such a wonderful time at your lovely apartment in Crans-Montana. It was so comfortable and well-equipped. We also loved the location and the area. Plaine Morte was probably the highlight of our week. I'll be sure to recommend your place to anyone I know travelling to Switzerland.

                                We spend two fantastic weeks here and loved every minute of it! We particularly enjoyed sitting on the sunny balcony outside of the living room to enjoy quiet dinners and breakfasts. It is well appointed and convenient, super clean and well maintained. Nice, caring neighbors on the floor above. We will definitely be back and stay here on our next trip to Crans.

                                The condominium was very clean and convenient, right in the center of town with easy access to markets and various forms of activities. The rooms were well appointed and everything worked.

                                Our stay in the apartment was fantastic.The location is superb. You can walk or catch a bus to wherever you want to go.The balcony at the apartment is super. We had all of our breakfasts out there and then also used it throughout the day. The best croissants are available right across the street. What a treat!

                              Owner info

                              About the owner: I was born and raised in Crans-Montana. I came to the USA in 1984 to attend university and later obtained my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. I currently am the Executive Director of Adolescent Counseling Services, a non-profit Organization providing counseling services to youth who could not otherwise afford it on the San Francisco Bay Peninsula. I inherited the apartment from my parents. I proudly consider this place my home in Switzerland. I visit Crans with my spouse many times a year. To this, our home away from home, we welcome caring individuals and friends who will appreciate the comfort and convenience of this special place and the beauty of its surrounding nature.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                              This is our home in Switzerland and we want you, our guests to feel welcome here as if it was your own place in the Alps. It is beautifully and tastefully furnished while being relaxing and comfortable. It will particularly suit individuals who are searching for beauty and peace while enjoying the best that a world class mountain resort has to offer. The apartment is located in a building where many families and individuals (some of whom are my childhood neighbors and friends) live year-round. This creates an environment and experience of living amongst locals.
