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

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review and let other people know about your experience and stay with us. We both love this part of Switzerland. There is so much to do; everything from mountain activities (summer and winter), swimming in crystal clear lakes, beautiful golf courses, amazing walks (some starting from our door), scenic... 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. The sitting area where we all played cards as a... More

We had a lovely stay - the breakfast was great, the rooms new and clean, and Gary and Karen are accomodating hosts. It is a few kms from Crans Montana, so as skiers means getting into the car each day. However, we would definitely recommend for a quiet alternative and good quality at a lower cost to central hotels and... More

We enjoyed every minute we were there. Meal, atmosphere and cleanliness , generous brightly. We received offers hiking tracks - each track is adjusted to our request with a precise intention. Highly recommend this pastoral place - far from the city bustle, but close enough for interesting site.
