Les Roches Campus

Les Roches Campus

Les Roches is based in the Alpine village of Bluche, five minutes from Crans-Montana, one of Switzerland’s most renowned ski and summer resorts. Bluche is in the Canton of Valais, a region that borders Italy and France; Sierre is its closest major city.

Crans Montana and Region

Crans-Montana is situated in the heart of the Alps at an altitude of 1,500m. It is a modern and fashionable ski resort where the air is said to be ‘lighter than champagne.’ 

The resort is composed of two villages: Crans, which is where most of the shopping is located; and Montana, where sports and other activities take place.

People come from all over the world to enjoy the sports on offer: golfing, hiking and mountain biking in summer, and skiing and snow sports in winter. 

Crans-Montana is a second residence to many famous celebrities and diplomats.
