Early in the Fifties of the last century a somewhat excentric Dutch lady of nobilty discovered a beautiful piece of land just outside Bluche, a small quiet village adjoining the much better known (then already) ski resort of Crans-Montana. Here she built the house of her dreams and she lived in Bluche until the end of her life in 1988. Then her daughter and recently her grand children have taken over the property. The property, locally known as Domaine de la Baronne (= Estate of the Baronesse) consists of some 18 acres of private grounds. It has it 's own private access road. The chalet has a spectacular view over a large part of the Valais with many 4000 meters + mountains, including the Weisshorn (4505), the Matterhorn / Cervin (4477), the Mont Blanc (4807), the Dent Blanche (4357).
This holiday chalet in Crans-sur-Sierre is pet / dog friendly.
Below the 3000m high glacier Plaine Morte one finds a skiing area which leaves nothing to be desired. Skiers and snowboarders from beginners to experts will all find a vast choice of suitable slopes. Besides skiing and snowboarding you can have a go at ski bobbing or, if you favor a less adrenaline pumping pastime, langlauf.
There is also a 7 kilometer long very beautiful sledgerun. As it lies well above the snow line you can ski year round on Plaine Morte.
The lower slopes have a very good track record regarding snow cover. In addition there are more then 150 snow machines which help in keeping the slopes in first class condition.
The Crans -Montana-Aminona area is served by a large number of modern ski-lifts, queues are therefore virtually unknown.
An attractive feature of the Crans -Montana- Aminona resort is that you can cover the entire area, from Crans Cry'd Erre in the west until Aminona in the east, skiing. Bus or car transfers to reach certain lifts are not necessary.
The Crans -Montana-Aminona resort is situated facing south and has a suitable micro climate. For this reason the area has above average hours of sunshine for Switzerland.
