Make a holiday rental chalet or property in Crans Montana, Switzerland your home away from home

The ski resort of Crans Montana is simply sublime in winter. The staggering landscape of Valais will melt even the stoniest of hearts when the sun is shinning, with soaring peaks of Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn emerging from the tree line to form one of the most idyllic backdrops of any ski resort in Europe. Although the town itself is not the most attractive, you will not spend a huge amount looking at it as your eyes will instantly drift towards the horizon! Crans Montana is among Switzerland’s largest ski resorts, located on the sunniest plateau in the country.

Things to do on holiday in Crans Montana, Switzerland

The ski slopes of Crans Montana, Switzerland cut through the forested lower slopes of the Swiss Alps, creating sheltered skiing perfect for when bad weather comes in. You can take a Crans Montana ski holiday at any time of the year due to the resort’s access to the Plaine Morte Glacier over 3,000m above sea level. The skiing is perfect for intermediate skiers, although it should be noted that a Crans Montana property rental is probably not the ideal base for expert skiers and snowboarders looking for a challenge, although there is a large amount of off-piste skiing available. There are also a range of beautiful beginner slopes, mainly across the golf course! Cross country skiing holidays in Crans Montana are excellent too, with many miles of trails running through the surrounding woodland. Snowboarders particularly enjoy the slopes of Crans Montana, and there is an excellent snow park in the town.

Crans Montana ski holidays are among the most glamorous in Switzerland. The Swiss tourist office maintains that the shopping in Crans Montana is the best in the Alps, and there are a huge range of magnificent restaurants to choose from. The restaurants of Crans Montana are certainly the place to ‘be seen’, and long lunches and even longer evening meals can sometimes retract from time on the slopes.

Aside from Crans Montana ski holidays, the resort is best known for its spectacular golf course. After playing the European Masters here, Greg Norman famously called the course “by far the most spectacular tournament site in the world”, and it is easy to agree. The combination of beautifully landscaped and hugely testing fairways set in stunning Alpine scenery makes it very hard to retain your concentration and despite the devilishly difficult greens, you never return to your Crans Montana property rental frustrated.

In summer, if you can prise yourself away from the golf course, there are some of the finest hiking and mountain biking trails anywhere in Valais. There are even a handful of riding stables with guides to take you out into the mountains. There are some excellent spots for hang gliding close to a Crans Montana property rental. There are over 280kms of trails for walking, mountain biking and horse riding, many of which are also open for winter hiking.

Places to visit on holiday in Crans Montana, Switzerland

The whole region is surrounded by fantastic sporting resorts, which are not just popular during the long ski season, but also during the warm summer months when the snow capped peaks become the playground for a huge range of outdoor adventure sports enthusiasts. Although you can still ski on many of the high altitude glaciers, it is sturdy walking boots, mountains bikes and climbing ropes which take up the space at the back of local busses, not skis and snowboards. The Portes du Soleil resort is one of the most developed, and has a huge number of sports facilities covering an incredible range of sports and leisure activities.

Travel to Crans Montana, Switzerland

The tiny Sion Airport (SIR) is just half an hour from a rental property in Crans Montana. However, flights direct from the UK are quite expensive due to the charter nature of the flights which land here. Alternatively, Geneva Airport (GVA) can be reached from a Crans Montana rental property in 2 hours.

Spacious, comfortable with superb panoramic views

5 of 5
This was our second year staying in this chalet, we had a great time last year and wanted to come back again. We love the wrap around mountain views from the living room which are spectacular, particularly when the sun is shining. We were a party of 5 and there was more than enough room, especially with 3 bathrooms in the chalet and the large living space. The chalet is very well stocked with cooking equipment if cooking at home is your thing, but the local restaurants are superb with fondue at La Cabane and pizza at Tchin Tchin being our favourites. Proximity to the lift is great in order to access the Tracouet area, from which you can quickly access the wider Verbier ski area. Nendaz is ideally situated in the middle of the 4 Vallees which allows the option to go "left" to Veysonnaz or "right" towards Verbier. Endless skiing for all abilities. Enjoy!
