Great chalet to stay in Saas Fee

  • 4 of 5

Great chalet, well maintained with everything needed... The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms too. Great location in Saas Fee.... the bus stop is just down the street.... We spend the week there as a group of 8 adults and had a wonderful time.

Deborah will give you an useful document with all the necessary information (restaurants, etc.)

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to spend a great time in Saas Fee.

Watch your head :-)

  • 5 of 5

Our group (6 adults 4 kids ages 1-6) had a great time in chalet Zuchmayer. The apartment has every thing you need for a holiday. The kitchen is nicely equiped with a big fridge, the livingroom with dining table has enough seating available for a big group. The downstair bathroom has a very nice bath to relax in after an active day. Saas Fee is an ideal ski-resort, with nice slopes, good instruction opportunities for kids and decent (although not cheap) restaurants, both in town as on the slopes (expecially the "Gletcher Grotte!". The only problem our group had was the ceiling which is a bit low for our group of tall (Dutch) people (1,93m max.). Deborah and Portia thanks for everything!

stunning holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have had the best holiday in this stunning chalet! From the moment of stepping into the door we felt at home. It's very original, all the old woodwork and features have been carefully and beautifully maintained. The warm and cosy atmosphere with sheepskin rugs on the floorboards and an original stove/fireplace in the kitchen is perfect after a day in the snow. There is lots of room, the layout ideal for families with kids and with 3 bathrooms and a sauna there are plenty of opportunities to have a shower without line-up! The garden is big and invites you to have snowballfights and to build snowmen; our kids spent hours playing out there. The whole chalet is stunning, very well equipped, very clean and definitely not to be missed!

Idyllic chalet with lovely views

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to stay!

We spent two weeks there this summer, and found it to be a roomy, comfortable chalet. The wonderful, historic house exudes the kind of atmosphere a new-build chalet cannot reproduce. It is not lacking in amenities either; I especially enjoyed the en-suite sauna after a long day's excursion.

The chalet also has the benefit of being in close proximity to the village centre, yet just far enough to avoid the noise, and just high enough to enjoy the views.

I would highly recommend Chalet Zuckmayer for your next Saas-fee vacation!

Perfect time in Saas Fee

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect time in Saas Fee, not only for the quality of the snow and sunny weather but also thanks in great part to Deborah and her near perfect Haus Zuckmayer!

The house is nice and comfy, very well equipped and perfect for a family with kids.

A little far away from the ski slopes and the Migros/Coop (a good 15min walk with young kids) but there is a free shuttle bus and the possibility to leave the ski equipment in heated lockers near the ski lifts at little expense, which we highly recommend doing.

Deborah was very helpful from the start and she provided an excellent support throughout our stay.

In summary, a great place to stay!

very nice & unique

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here in Feb’ 2012 on our first trip to Saas Fee. The chalet is exactly as described and shown here on the site - truly cosy, nicely furnished and first class renovated with the charm of old buildings. The location of the chalet is fine, close enough to the center by foot or with the free shuttle (that we used everyday to go to the lifts on the other side of the village, a good 15mn walk). It is also close to the main parking (5-7 mn walk).

There was just enough space inthe chalet for the 10 of us and it was quite OK, but the chalet would probably be more adapted to 8 people as it is not so spacy (an old house !).

There’s a nice comfortable & cosy living/eating room where it is very pleasant to stay after a good day of ski...

Bedrooms are really comfortable : two are extremely large & stylish, the one downstairs is ok but also a TV room so the bed is in fact a sofa, and two are really for kids with no table and just 2 bunk beds). Bathrooms are very modern and pleasant (the one downstairs is as large as the bedroom !). The chalet is equipped with 2 top modern TV sets, hifi and wifi.had a wonderful time there, contact via e.mail with Deborah has been just exquisite. We definitely advise anyone to stay at the “Haus Zuckmayer”.

Notes:
The chalet is perfect for 2 families but not suitable for babies as there is a small open spiral staircase. Originally built in1928 for a Swiss chemist; Oskar Eckstein, it was the first house in the village to be surrounded by a fence to protect exotic Asian plants from the greedy mouths of the local goats. The chalet brims with character; its former owner Carl Zuckmayer, the celebrated German novelist & playwriter, purchased Haus Vogelweid in 1958 and completely rebuilt it. Zuckmayer spent his post war years in Hollywood writing plays for the likes of Dietrich, naming Bogart & Cooper amongst his friends - you will see evidence of this in the chalet! It was from here that Carl wrote his autobiography; Saas Fee having conferred citizenship on him in 1961. The traditional stone ovens in many rooms bear carvings of his beloved Almagellerhorn and the wood burning stove in the kitchen was last used by his daughter Winnetou in 2004. Carl Zuckmayer died in 1977 aged 80, a Swiss citizen.
