The chalet is located next to the small lake of Lens just a few minutes' walk from the village center or the bus stop. Our hosts have been friendly, welcoming and professional during our short stay for the Jeep Heep Heep 2014.

Just returned from a 3 week tour of Euro, and had a great 3 night stay at Chalet des Alpes with Karen and Gary, who were very helpful and knowledgable about the area (especially good biking roads!) Food was very good, after having a long day on my motorcycle then having a very nice evening meal with a good glass... More

We have just spent the most fabulous 4 days at Chalet Des Alps with Gary & Karen as the perfect hosts. The chalet is just beautiful, clean, homely and in the perfect position to enjoy the many delights of the area/region. Breakfast every morning was a great start to the day and the evening meals on option at the chalet... More

We travelled for a ski holiday and chose Chalet des Alpes for its convenient location as a base to access within an hour the majority of resorts in Valais. Our stay was great and it far exceeded our expectations. Booking and confirmations were easy and timely. The hosts, Karen and Gary, were welcoming, friendly, professional and helpful. The rooms and... More

We spent two nights here and really enjoyed it. Very comfortable rooms and ours had a deck we could sit on and enjoy the view. Gary gave us good suggestions for day trips and one drive allowed us to the Mount Blanc and the Matterhorn....really special. Winery suggestions were also good. The only downside was it is a bit away... More

After having lived in Valais on and off for over two decades, it's hard to return to the area I love so much but no longer am attached to with a home. Finding a nice hotel that wasn't over the top expensive was a challenge. Until I landed on Chalet des Alpes. I'm always skeptical of photos hotels provide on... More

Chalet des Alpes is a small gem. Beautifully located, very well appointed and maintained, and with very welcoming and helpful hosts. In a quiet village, but within easy reach of Crans Montana, and an excellent centre for touring the Valais, it would be difficult to beat, and by Swiss standards it offers very good value. We spent three days there... More

My wife and I booked this B&B mainly as a base to see the European Masters golf at Crans-Montana, and was very apprehensive having never been to Switzerland before. But once we got there all our reservations were put behind us. Karen & Gary who run the B&B were great hosts and so friendly and helpful that within a few... More

At the very last minute we decided to have some holidays to Switzerland. We wanted to stay at a small town with enough opportunites for walks in the mountains, for some sightseeing in cities and visiting the thermal baths. No hassling with having to arrange some shopping for breakfast and a comfortable bed. It is all there. Nice town, good... More

This is the second time that we have stayed with Gary and Karen, both times have been fantastically relaxing experiences . The first time we went with my parents who used to run a hotel and have extremely high standards that Gary and Karen met and exceeded at every opportunity.
