Deluxe chalet: Best base for hikers
Review Submitted: 28 June 2010

Back from 2 weeks hiking in the greater area of Crans-Montana we can only give our best references to our 5*base El Condor. We did many gentle hikes along the beautiful old water channels called Bisse/Suonen. To the ambitious hikers we recommend the Illhorn, across the valley, the trail to Zinal and the Col de Bastillon, further down the valley (Bourg St.Pierre). We found it easy to get around by public transport. Back at the chalet, we loved the absolute silence, the wonderful views and - during the world soccer championships - of course the huge screen. Unfortunately, for German speaking people, only 2 (Swiss) channels were open. But then, a laptop was supplied, internet worked and we had no troubles finding out about weather, trains, buses etc. We cooked delicious meals in that practical and well equippped kitchen. We especially highlight that all was very clean, of good quality. The same goes for the wonderful bath rooms. The cleaning ladies also did a great job at the end of our first week, and this with a smile and helpful information. Last but not least, we appreciated the very friendly and uncomplicated way of organizing it all with the owner directly. It was paradise, although our NZZ newspaper never arrived (somehow the post couldn't sort it out). We definitively will come back for another great stay at the El Condor.
