Chalet Torrent is one of five Crans Luxury Lodges' properties. This Chalet, rustic in design, offers a unique mountain atmosphere, a unique alpine retreat. Surrounded by ski slopes, it is the perfect location for peace, relaxation and intimacy, yet still being only five minutes away from the Resort Centre, this chalet enjoys prime location.

Chalet Torrent is located in the famous ski gate “La Nationale”, which is part of the FIS international circuit. Actually, Chalet Torrent is one of the few lodges in Crans Montana with ski in ski out facilities. At Chalet Torrent, each and every material, equipment and piece of furniture has been carefully selected to create a unique atmosphere that will definitely indulge your senses. Imagine yourself in a rustic Mountain utopia surrounded by princely materials; such as natural stones and regional woods specially treated to maintain their natural appearance. All this contributes to the luxurious proportions of the Crans Luxury Lodges. Chalet Torrent is a 250 square-meter chalet distributed on two floors. On the ground floor, you will find a large living-dining room with an open kitchen, and two suites with a bathroom in each. On the first floor, you will find two larger suites. The master suite boasts its own private Jacuzzi, dressing room and comfortable bathroom. And the second suite, cozily decorated, enjoys an en-suite bathroom (with shower); in the basement Chalet Torrent offers a wine cellar with a great choice of the best and finest regional wines.

Winter Walking - There are 63km of designated paths for walking and with varying levels of difficulty there is a way for everyone – even non-skiers - to get out on to the mountain. There are five different snowshoe routes totalling 15km through the forests, around the lakes and marked out over the golf course. A great way to take in the winter alpine atmosphere

Cross Country Skiing - The cross-country skiing takes place on the Plaine Morte glacier where the 360 degree views can be absorbed

Tobogganing - Running from an altitude of 2400m down to 1500m it really is a sledging track to get the heart racing. With being open in the evening it is a great way to build up your appetite for dinner

Snow Tubing - The track for tubing is on the golf course in resort

Ice Skating - There is an outdoor Ice Rink for evening skating and if you want to try your hand at something new there is also curling too

Swimming - Within the resort there are eight public indoor pools, a heated salt water pool and also nine wellness centres. All are based in hotels

Shopping - Packed high to the rafters with high quality boutiques, there isn’t a Swiss watch brand or designer fashion brand that you could think of that isn’t already there

Restaurants - With lots of local dairy products, quality food shops and wine cellars you can ‘taster’ your way around the village on a relaxing afternoon

CURRENCY INFORMATION

MONEY MATTERS
Travellers cheques are widely accepted for exchange or purchase in major cities, but in more rural areas, visit a bank to exchange them for Euros. Major credit cards are widely accepted here and ATM access is widespread. Exchange currency only at authorized outlets such as banks and hotels, and exchange only what you think you will spend in the country. Coins cannot be reconverted on departure. Save all receipts from any currency exchange transaction. You may be asked to produce them when you exit the country, and they are required if you intend to reconvert local currency.

TIPPING SUGGESTIONS
In restaurants a service charge is built into menu prices. However, it's customary to round up amounts when paying the waiter or waitress if you're happy with the service. This means that you might hand the server CHF 50 for a CHF 47 meal. If you're paying by credit card, hand the server a cash tip of up to 5%. For Taxis as in restaurants, round up or add 5% when you're happy with the service. Tips to your chalet staff are entirely at your discretion.

ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE FORMALITIES
Travel documents are your responsibility. In general you should have: a signed, valid passport that will remain valid for at least 6 months beyond the completion of your trip. Your passport must have enough blank pages (excluding amendment pages) available for entry and exit stamps issued when entering and exiting immigration points. Visas are required for certain nationalities and you are strongly advised to check your status allowing plenty of time for visa application. EU nationals are only required to hold a valid national ID card.

WEATHER
Switzerland's winter temperature range is -2 °C (28 °F) to 7 °C (45 °F), with the snow remaining in the Alps until around April. The alpine climate is cold and visitors should wear warm, waterproof clothing at all times when outdoors during the winter. Hats and gloves are also essential to prevent frostbite.

HEALTH

Best wishes, Qaiser.

We had a lovely time. The snow was great. The chalet was very good. The concierges, Cyril and Indra, were amazing and please tell them so; super service. I loved Crans Montana, but the rest of my family remain obsessed with the Trois Vallee!

The villa

Because everyone’s concept of a villa holiday is different, we have created a formula designed to offer privacy, flexibility and the freedom to run your own holiday or call upon us to help open up a world of possibilities. Our villas are normally rented on a villa-only weekly basis and are ideal for those seeking independence and privacy. We’re on call in case you need us and we provide a change of towels and bed linen during the week, but otherwise there no inclusions. 

A&K Concierge upgrade

For additional support, comfort and a slice of pampering why not upgrade to our A&K Concierge service. Included is an airport welcome on arrival with assistance for onward transportation; the services of an A&K Concierge – whose local knowledge provides you with invaluable assistance and recommendations; an orientation of the local area; a fully stocked drinks fridge; maid service; the ingredients for your first evening’s supper and breakfast delivered on the first morning of your stay. For full details of concierge inclusions speak to an A&K Travel Consultant on 0845 618 2205.

The finishing touches

Ever dreamt of driving through the Chianti hills in a red Ferrari, or along the Moyenne Corniche to Monaco in a Bentley? How about sailing along the Cote d'Azur to St Tropez in a private yacht or speed boat? Sometimes the home is all that you need, but if you're lured into culture, excitement, activity, improving your cooking or simply dabbling in landscapes, then speak to one of our Villa Specialists for an insight into what we can arrange. These are what we call our ‘Finishing Touches’.

The list is by no means exhaustive and we always welcome requests, however obscure you may think they are! Our local offices enable us to control the quality of the services on offer and the depth of knowledge our local teams have is impressive. Our aim is to provide guests with the authentic sights, flavours and experiences of the region they are staying in.

If you would prefer to discuss your specific requirements, whether it’s in relation to the property or about your stay in general, please do contact us using the Enquire page or please do give us a call for a chat.
