The views over the mountains and valley (from all rooms) are just breathtaking. The chalet is really well equipped with everything you need and more (we even found cards and boardgames, PlayStation console and karaoke kit which made our stay indoors more fun) . Great bedroom sizes, good storage place and an outstanding living room space with an extremely charming fireplace. We loved relaxing in the jacuzzi after a hard day on the slopes and being right next to the electric train stop, made our moving around Saas Fee extremely easy. The beds were very comfortable which allowed us to get proper rest at night and the rooms warmed up very quickly and maintained the temperature for long. We had a memorable experience as Saas Fee is an extremely charming skiing resort, CO free, with plenty of little shops (gifts, sport items and groceries) and very tasty restaurants to choose from. We highly recommend this chalet to anyone that wants to have such an experience as ours. Looking forward to coming back next season. Many thanks to everyone involved for their great service.

The property itself is modern, cosy and with all the amenities you would expect for a top end apartment. The views from the garden are beautiful especially at night when all the lights of Zermatt come on. Zermatt itself has plenty on offer. Fantastic skiing and snowboarding but also plenty of high altitude walks on well prepared paths for those who prefer walking. Shops are plentiful and some excellent restaurants - though be sure to book in high season. Peter was incredibly helpful throughout the entire booking process. The little hotel below the property is ideal for breakfast when you first arrive and they also did a raclette one evening which was fun.

We loved your Chalet because for us (family with three children aged 6-12) it provides everything we need. Also, it is really great that the Chalet has everything like Fondue, Raclette equipment, basic snow equipment (sledge etc.). We would be very happy to come again. Best wishes Michael and Susan
