Crans Montana is a town in Canton Valais in Switzerland that is widely famous for its luxurious resorts and ideal location for ski and other winter sports.
In the article, we will guide you through the beautiful town of Crans Montana, starting from an early breakfast at Chetzeron 2112 Hotel.
A sumptuous breakfast in the heart of Crans Montana!
Chetzeron 2112 Hotel offers a breakfast buffet, featuring a wide variety of delicacies and it's open to non-residents as well. Although the breakfast choices given are limited, the quality of the morning dishes available is exceptional!
In the first section of the buffet you can find different kinds of bread, as well as ham, salami and cheese. Try eating your bread toasted, along with butter and homemade marmalades!

In the middle of the buffet you will find eggs, cooked according to your preference: hard-boiled, fried, omelet or scrambled.
The staff is always at your disposal, so you can order all kinds of coffee including espresso, cappuccino, latte etc.
Fire & Snow
You will not have a complete experience, unless you dive into the heated outdoors swimming pool of Chetzeron Hotel, overlooking the picturesque Crans Montana.
If you want to relieve yourself from tension, then you should definitely try the Ma-uri massage , a complete body massage that was practiced in New Zealand, and uses hot oil as its basis.
❆ The rooftop swimming pool is open all day long, so you can visit it right after your breakfast. We recommend you to visit it during evening hours though, since the landscape is more spectacular!
If you are an adventure lover who wants to further explore the surrounding area, then skiing is the perfect choice for you. The ski resort of Crans Montana is situated at 1,500 to 3,000 metres above sea level and provides a variety of slopes of all difficulty levels.

The best type of room is, by far, the Junior Suite, with its "cozy" corner. There is also a sofa bed in the room that can accommodate up to 2 children, making it also ideal for families!
