CHETZERON DESIGN HOTEL, CRANS-MONTANA
In a former cable car station on the heights of Crans-Montana in Switzerland, Chetzeron luxury Hotel stands out as a design refuge perched at more than 2,100 meters above sea level.
To discover this successful transformation realized by Actes Collectifs architectes, direction the Valais Alps and their wonderful panoramas, in one of the most legendary Swiss ski resorts, Crans-Montana.
The old Chetzeron gondola lift station dating back to the 1960's has since the end of 2014 been converted into a luxury and high mountain hotel. An intimate cocoon of 16 rooms where the view of the Alps from Mont-Rose to Mont Blanc is preciously framed by oak wood, slate and glass.The restaurant, with its refined architecture and exceptional volumes offers a menu of both market and mountain cuisine. Facing south, it offers through its large windows this fascinating view of the Valais Alps.
The ultra panoramic terrace in solid oak is organized on three levels to create 3 different atmospheres: large tables with hammocks and deck chairs, sheep skins for lounging or brazier lounge to gather in smaller committee.
Equally magical, the heated pool that has found its place on the roof of the hotel: spa, sauna, steam room and massages are of course at the rendezvous!
In exceptional situation, exceptional means. In winter, the hotel is accessible by snowcat or ski. In summer, we join him on foot, by bike or on a scooter.
Did you know? Chetzeron means round peak in Valais dialect, which explains the hotel's logo.
