About the Property
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Separate Den/TV Room, 1 Large Bathroom, (Sleeps 4-6)
CRANS-MONTANA - One of 'The 45 Places to Go in 2012' according to The New York Times
You will feel at home away from home in this beautiful, large and classy two-bedroom, one full bath apartment with a separate den/TV room and formal living room/dining room with a wood fireplace situated 5 minutes by foot from the main gondola to the ski slopes and 3 minutes from a world class championship golf course. The apartment is in the heart of downtown Crans, across from a grocery store, the Caviar House, down the street from Louis Vuiton and Hermes, the movie theater and some of the best shopping, bars, restaurants, grocery stores in all Switzerland. Alpine views can be enjoyed from every window. Spacious balconies are found outside every room where sitting and dining 'al fresco' is possible during the warmer months.
This well-appointed apartment can comfortably sleep up to 6 adults but is perfect for 4 and even better for a romantic getaway for 2! There is a queen-size bed in each bedroom and a queen-size sofa bed in the separate den/TV room. It has a formal living room with a wood fireplace and dining room as well as a breakfast nook for two in the kitchen.
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.

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.
