Chalet Penthouse 1km to Skiing, Next to Golf and Le Régent College

This penthouse apartment features 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bath and sleeps up to 7 adults.

Living room and main hallway features wood paneling from a 100 year old Swiss Church! The wood was acquired when the church was renovated. The wood is stunning and provides a true Swiss log-cabin feel, even in the centre of Crans-Montana! The living room also features a fireplace and direct access to a large private balcony. The views are unblocked and breathtaking.

The kitchen and dining area is fully featured with matching wood paneling.

Master bedroom has a king sized bed (can be separated into two doubles). Master bathroom has jacuzzi bathtub and separate shower. Few Crans-Montana apartment offers a suite like this!

Second Bedroom features two double beds (can be joined) and also has it’s own private full bathroom. (This is the normal size for a master bedroom in Crans-Montana!). This bedroom also have access to it's own private balcony with village views.

Third bedroom is located in a mezzanine space above the living room. Great room for children and features a separate TV and DVD player. The room can comfortably sleep two adults. Note that this bedroom features limited roof heights due to sloped ceilings.

There is a half-bath in the entrance hallway.We are a small family with two kids: Harry(2.5) and Josephine(5.5), two Dogs and two cats. We live in Somerville, MA, USA. We rent out our great in-law apartment in Somerville, MA, USA as well as out ski cabin in Crans-Montana, Switzerland. We also use AirBnB when we go on family vacations.

lovely crans montana retreat

  • 5 of 5

Short 4 day stay. Lovely location - balcony over the mountains. Penthouse suite.

Excellent value. Charming apartment. 2 lovely balconies - unobstructed eagles view over the valley.

Owners very helpful and no problem to contact - very reassuring.

Kids loved the mezzanine to get lost in. Lots bedrooms.

UK satellite tv a great advantage. Swimming pool fabulous - 10 ft deep.

A few grumbles but wouldnt stop us staying again.

The cooker and fridge are not that easy to use - american style? There is a separate freezer that is good.

The jacuzzi has a mind of its own and didnt work till last day.

Building works around wake you up - major new apartments being built all around.

Very hot when we were there - 37C in the valley (31C in crans) and no air con and being a top level the flat does get hot but cools down overnight with doors open. This was extreme and i expect very rare for the weather to be so hot.

Not far from the town but a climb upwards so car best.

The town is alive and has a beach!

Really enjoyed. Many thanks

What a wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place! Chalet Doris is as charming as the view is magnificent, it's just as the pictures describes. This is a very well planned home, we are a family of only four but whith the mezanine, the kids favorite, you could easily share the Chalet between two families. The kitchen is fully equiped and we enjoyed most evenings after a full day of skiing at the chalet. Truly we had the best after-ski on the balcony enyoing the view along the Valais valley until the sun settled over the mountains, marvelous! The living room is a work of art with its wall panels froom a 200 year old chapel. In all the place is just as the pictures describe. Chalet Doris is conveniently locatated within walking distance from the charming Crans centre. Even so we found it very easy to take the car to the ski-lifts. The ski area was very good with modern and fast lifts, long and fun pistes, easily accessible off-pist and a great snowpark. Crans-Montana boasts of being the sunniest ski resort in Switzerland and we had clear skies and no wind on six out of seven days. There was a great pic-nic place along the piste from Les Violettes to Nationale Express. If you prefer to eat at a restaurant the Cabane des Violettes had a great terrass, it was very popular so we recommend reserving seats in advance. On our way back from the ski area it was easy to stop by at Coop or Migros to stock up on Valais wine, Crans-Montana local beer La:Marmotte (try La Brunette) and Swiss cheees for another scenic after-ski. We will definitely come back and holeheartedly give Chalet Doris our very strongest recommendations.

From the Owner

It's hard to find rentals in Crans-Montana that feel like a true Swiss Log-Cabin. We think our Chalet Doris fits this bill. It truly feels like you're in your own cabin with great views of the Alps yet you're a short walk to the village centre, bars and restaurants and steps from the golf.
