The accommodation was excellent for six adults and the pictures do not do justice to the comfortable sitting area and well appointed kitchen and dining space. The beds are comfortable and the showers hot and powerful. The short downhill walk to the Sunnega lift is easy in the morning, especially with skis and boots left at Flexirent. The climb back in the afternoon might best be done by taxi, depending on the length of time spent at lunch on the mountain, shopping or a visit to Elsie's bar.

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.
