Just for your eyes! The ultra-luxury apartments for sale in Crans-Montana, the ski resort where the late Bond actor Roger Moore owned a house
- Ultra-luxury apartments are for sale in the Swiss ski resort of Crans-Montana
- The apartments have between three and five bedrooms and are on the ski slopes
- Crans-Montana won the heart of Roger Moore who bought a house there
The Swiss ski resort of Crans-Montana has attracted its fair share of celebrities in the past, including the late Roger Moore who owned a ski chalet there.
If you have deep pockets, you can follow in the film star’s footsteps by buying property in the resort, which offers an abundance of facilities for adventurous James Bond types.
However, you’ll need a 007-figure salary to afford one of the Six Senses luxury apartments currently for sale in Crans-Montana, which has been compared to the Holland Park of the ski world due to its understated wealth.
Six Senses Hotel in Crans-Montana has built 17 semi-detached residences overlooking the ski slopes
The resort is said to exude quiet class without being too flashy. This is indeed how one could describe the 17 residences that have been built adjoining the Six Senses hotel. There are only three left for sale.
The price of owning a slice of this snow paradise starts at 7.5 million Swiss francs, the equivalent of £6.8 million. The price is for a three bedroom property with no interior design.
This means the cost can increase significantly for a five-bedroom apartment with the interior design package from AW2, the designers who are also responsible for the hotel’s interior.

A house that is only for your eyes
Roger Moore’s ski was on display – along with his stunt double – in the Bond film For Your Eyes Only.
It was filmed in the Italian ski resort of Cortina rather than the Swiss resort of Crans-Montana.
But it was the Swiss ski resort of Crans-Montana that captured Roger Moore’s heart – so much so that he bought a family home there.
Roger Moore bought a chalet in Crans-Montana
MailOnline spoke exclusively to Jorg Romang, who was Roger Moore’s ski instructor and friend for 25 years.
Mr Romang said: “Roger was not a big skier and was just happy to spend the day in the mountains.” But he was still amazing and great fun company. He was my only client to fall out of a chair on the ski lift.
He added: “Their ski chalet in Crans-Montana was a real retreat for Roger and his family. It was a ski in ski out chalet and they were really happy there.

The hotel prides itself on its green approach, with 100% of its heating and cooling needs powered by a sustainably sourced wood pellet system. The hotel also uses local seasonal produce in its restaurant and its alpine water is bottled on site.
And for those who really want to indulge in the Alpine spirit, there is a large – functional – Alphorn at the entrance to the hotel’s underground car park.
Luxury seeps through the walls of the Six Senses property and is enhanced by touches such as a spa for guests, who can even choose from a ‘pillow menu’.
Those who purchase one of the apartments have access to all of the hotel’s facilities, including its Wellness Suite – which includes an ice fountain, Finnish sauna and yoga studio, as well as an indoor swimming pool with a wooden suspended ceiling.
In addition to 140 kilometers of ski slopes and a snowpark with an Olympic half-pipe, Crans-Montana has an ice rink (photo) and two sports centers
With such attention to detail, what better place to come back to at the end of an active day than in a luxury ski-in ski-out apartment.
Whether you ski like James Bond – like Roger Moore and his stuntman did in the film For Your Eyes Only – or whether you prefer mountain biking, ice skating or rock climbing, Crans-Montana meets a variety of sports tastes.
In addition to 140 kilometers of ski slopes and a snow park with an Olympic half-pipe, there are four golf courses, an ice rink, two sports centers and three indoor curling rinks. It’s a destination for the whole family, even if they have a bank account the size of Hollywood.
