In addition to the authenticity of its alleyways, Grimentz is above all a preserved and enchanting site, offering five months of guaranteed snow cover and the particularity of having a heliport located on the outskirts of the village. In the centre of the "Imperial Crown" (five peaks over 4000 metres high), this unique opportunity in Europe makes it possible to ensure all official helicopter drops from anywhere in Switzerland, as well as VIP transport from the international airports of Geneva, Sion and even Zurich. Summer and winter alike, Grimentz is packed with activities to satisfy all mountain enthusiasts: skiing, snowboarding, freeride, snowpark, sealskin or cross-country skiing, trekking and trail, mountain biking, via ferrata, ice climbing, gastronomic trails, etc.

Jewels of Anniversary architecture, the Résidences Guernerés are the result of a perfect harmony between regional identity and modern comfort of the highest standard. With total respect for the environment and the surrounding setting, the Résidences Guernerés are built using noble materials such as old wood and dry stone, and promise a unique quality of life, with hotel services and easy access that will satisfy the most demanding clientele. Their location, at an altitude of over 1600 metres, is one of the most prestigious in the Valais.

The CIEFM (CI Exclusive Properties Facility Management) will provide the owners with a whole range of 5-star hotel services, such as housekeeping, laundry and ironing, luggage storage, concierge services, etc., and in a second phase a wellness & spa area and restaurant. The "buy, use and rent" concept will also be offered, allowing owners to rent out their property on a seasonal basis and receive a constant rental income without taking any steps. The CIEFM takes care of the entire rental process.

Composed of sixteen chalets that can be divided into flats or delivered as individual residences, the Résidences Guernerés enjoy an exceptional location on the ski slopes and an unobstructed view of the valley. The modular chalet flats can be freely merged, delivered furnished or unfurnished according to the purchaser's wishes, so that they feel "at home" for unforgettable alpine experiences.
