Apartment block is situated at one end of the main street in Les Collons 1800. The Trabanta chair-lift and shuttle-bus stop are just across the street. The apartment is part of a bright modern building with an excellent supermarket at street level. The apartment sleeps seven in three bedrooms. There are two balconies, with panoramic views from Crans-Montana in the north to Matterhorn in the south. Underfloor heating is fitted through-out, ensuring a cosy return at the end of a days skiing. Unusually for a three-bedded apartment, there is both a bathroom and a shower-room. A ski-locker is available in the basement of the building. A communal laundry room is situated one floor above the apartment.
I am a GP living and working in Belfast , Northern Ireland. My husband and I bought the apartment in 2006 and have had some wonderful winter and summer holidays with our 3 children.
Les Serandes is ideally placed for ease of access to the slopes with Le Trabante chairlift situated adjacent to the apartment block and a run right back to the front door!
A well stocked supermarket is located in the building.
The apartment is warm and bright, the village quiet but a perfect escape!
Stayed in Les Serandes now for the last 6 years whilst i was skiing with some friends. Was booked to be on the trip again this year but due to illness will have to give it a miss. I will be back next year though!
I have never reviewed before so please bear with me on this one.
Where to start?
At the front door!
Les Sarrandes is a most beautiful apartment block located within the very picturesque village of Les Collons in the Thyon Region.
The actual front door is directly opposite the Trabanta Ski lift which is the main ski lift to Thyon and Verbier beyond. i am not joking.....you walk out of the apartment building, walk 20 yards across the street and you are on the lift.
On the ground floor of the apartment complex is a well stocked shop, bakery, butchery, cheese counter etc and a coffee shop that also sells vin Chaud and beers as well. So you will never go without.They sell Guinness as well!
The apartment is immaculate and extremely well presented. There are 3 bedrooms and it easily caters for 7 persons. The fact that it has 2 bathrooms is an added bonus so no queues for the baths or the showers in the evening or the morning and there is alway piping hot water.
The Kitchen I am told is well stocked........i don't cook......but I do know that the dish washer works perfectly!!
The lounge area is perfect and opens onto 2 balconies......one for chilling the beer in the snow and the other for sitting out on and watching the skiers ski down the mountain to the Trabanta Lift or at night look across the valley at the night skiing going on at Crans Montana.
The apartment is well arranged, stocked and spacious to take all the guests no problem even with Ski boots in the hall on their rack, drying out for the next day. The Skis usually are left outside at the front door to the apartment not the block and is totally secure as the access to the building is monitored.
There is underfloor heating so you will never go cold.......you will probably find that you open all the windows during your stay which sounds a little alien in the middle of the winter!
in terms of restaurants in the village there is a good choice in Les Collins as well as a couple of pubs but up a level there is a most beautiful restaurant called La Cambeuse. (10min walk).
Les Collons is not 'party city' but why spend all that money to go away for what must be the best skiing I know of to spend it in a bar!
Would i go back........hell yes......6 times now!!
Till next year!
I and a group of friends came for a weeks skiing. The apartment is right beside the main trabanta ski lift and is beautifully appointed. 6 adults are easily accommodated and the block is right beside the supermarket and restaurants. Could not be faulted.
