Better than we imagined, apartment (clean and well maintained) had all we needed for a perfect time in the Swiss Alps (2 adults and 2 Labrador dogs). Fab quality furniture, hard flooring throughout and bathroom which I wanted to take home! Spacious underground parking space, keeping car cool in Summer. Lift to first floor appt very close. Large fridge (no access to freezer - 1 drawer for ice would be perfect as JD and coke isn’t the same without it!) and plenty of utensils/crockery to cook with (no need to eat out). Lovely view of valley and surrounding hills/mountains via bedrooms’ windows and large terrace off living room. Plenty of hanging space for clothes. Very helpful receptionist who offered us cheaper (than train who charge half price for dogs) group taxi service into Zermatt (not able to drive into there in our own car apparently, although we did see many cars entering!). Fantastic walks all around - Taschalp, Gornergrat railway/mountain (beers at Riffelhaus highly recommended as fantastic view of the Matterhorn and paragliders taking off/gliding), and longest suspension bridge above Randa, are among our favourites, all easily accessible via car, bike or foot. Would stay again now if I had enough holiday!!!
We had a really good time here. Great snow and a super beautiful village. The walk to the lifts is mainly flat and very scenic and there were ski lockers next to the lift. There is also an electric bus from just above the chalet every few minutes but we preferred the walk.
The village is stacked with bars and restaurants and the food was of a very high standard. Being located on the Italian boarder the local wine was also fantastic. Just beside the chalet there is a great traditional Swiss food restaurant which was our favorite.
The chalet itself is of a very high standard and very traditional – all made out of wood. The master bedroom was large warm and had a nice on-suite bathroom with Jacuzzi. The two other bedrooms were also well presented. The best bit was the living room and kitchen with wood burning fireplace. I really enjoyed the stay and will most likely come back next year. There is also a ton of walking stuff to do when you don’t fancy skiing – the best bit is you can walk down past all the other villages and then get the bus back up the hill!
Saas-fee is a picturesque Swiss mountain village like one you would expect to be pictured on a Swiss box of chocolates.
