About Sue Edwards

Keen skiers who have lived in Dubai for 10 years, escaping to Daphne in either winter or summer is perfect for us. The chalet is detached and unique and was fully renovated to our specifications after we bought it. So relaxing and a complete antidote to the desert! The children love it. Daphne is the name of an alpine flower found in Saas Fee but also, we have subsequently learned, the name of the Frenchman's wife who first bought the chalet in the 1960s.

Sue Edwards purchased this chalet in 2008

Why Sue Edwards chose Saas Fee

Having spent many years skiing in Muerren growing up, we were keen to buy a ski chalet but wanted a resort slightly bigger than Muerren. Being similarly car-free, traditional and German-speaking, Saas Fee fit the bill for us.

What makes this chalet unique

Daphne is a stand-alone, detached chalet and one of a kind. There is not another one. You can lie in bed with a morning coffee and see straight up to the Allalin glaciers. Living takes place on the top floor where the views from every window are stunning. You can sit on the balcony and wonder at the millions of stars and if you're lucky get a view of our 'old man of the mountain', sleeping in the moonlight.

A beautiful five star retreat with amazing views

  • 5 of 5
As soon as you arrive in this beautiful village your shoulders drop. It is so beautiful and the chalet is perched with fantastic views. It is not really a chalet more a 5 star residence with all modern amenities and comforts. The wrap around balcony was amazing even in the snow- so gorgeous!!! We are planning to return in the summer for a totally different perspective. We would highly recommend this gorgeous home from home

Wish it was my house

  • 5 of 5
Stunning mountains, everlasting glaciers, alpine flowers, crisp air, magnificent views from a beautifully appointed house, what else could one wish for. We stayed for ten days and could have stayed for 4 weeks. Our two boys, 8 and 6, were in a perpetual state of happiness from all the amazing activities they partook in. I haven't seen my husband so relaxed in a while. We'll be back.

August 2011 - hiking and relaxing

  • 5 of 5
Chalet Daphne is an amazing place. Seemingly rustic on the outside, we were struck by how stylish and modern the interior of this place is, without losing any of its coziness and comfort. Bedrooms are spacious with plenty of storage space, really good mattresses and nice bedding. A highlight are the modern bathrooms, with rainshower no less. Living space upstairs is cleverly designed with a very modern, well-equipped kitchen opening up onto a huge dining area and a very comfortable L-shaped couch affording an amazing view onto the whole Saaser Alps range through panorama windows. Satellite TV is available with programmes in any language you could wish for. There is also a stylish woodburing fireplace - luckily we had no occasion to use it in August. There are two huge wrap-around balconies we made a lot of use of - great for relaxing in the afternoon sun. Shops and restaurants are nearby, but the chalet is at the quiet end of the village, giving the best of both worlds. A brand-new washer drier is installed downstairs - all very easy to use. Plenty of electrical sockets throughout the property, and very fast Wifi. A premium place.

Chalet Daphne, Saas Fee.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Chalet Daphne for a week in August and had a wonderful stay. Two families with 4 adults and 4 kids. We were picked up from the bus station by electric taxi and there was a welcome basket waiting for us and someone to show us around. We were made to feel very welcome. The chalet is newly renovated and has everything you could want and everything is high quality – no IKEA in sight! With young children we cooked a lot at home and the kitchen is incredibly well equipped (even with cake tins!). The chalet is detached and is reached from a path up a small flight of stairs or a slight bank. The living area is on the top floor. It has amazing views from all windows and a lovely balcony to sit and admire the views. There is an open staircase which may not be suitable for the under-2s. It is a short walk to the bakery in the morning and an easy walk into the centre of the village for shopping. The shopping trolley on wheels is very useful.


This was my first trip to Saas Fee but it certainly won’t be the last. The scenery is dramatic and the village is pretty with lots of traditional bits. It is car-free and everything is in easy walking distance. It seems to be very safe and the older children (9, 11) could take themselves off into the village or to the (excellent) playpark by themselves.

There are loads of things to do and we certainly didn’t cover it in one week but some recommendations are:

Go up to Spielboden to see (and feed) the marmottes; you can walk down (our 4 year old did it with some persuasion). Pitstop about 4/5ths of the way down – the Gletchergrotte restaurant with beautiful views.

Walk the Kapellen weg down to Saas Grund and get the bus back up to Saas Fee.

The fantastic adventure forest is good for kids from about 6 years old.

Our children also really enjoyed the swimming pool and the toboggan ride.

Restaurants: nearest restaurant to the chalet (2 minutes) is the Alp Hitta with traditional Swiss food and interior – very nice and the owner usually plays the accordion..
Don’t miss a walk to Waldhus Bodmen (20 minutes on the route down to Saas Allmagell) – extremely geared up for children with loads of animals (including lamas and a camel), playground and a play room and extremely nice food. The kids menu is also very nice and not just chicken nuggets.

The resort generally is very child-friendly – all lifts are free for the under-9s and in the Winter so is the ski-pass.

Highly recommended.

Saas Fee, known as the 'Pearl of the Alps' is a traffic-free, traditional Swiss ski resort that boasts skiing 10 months of the year on its glaciers. Nestled at 1800m, Saas Fee is surrounded by some of Switzerland's highest peaks and stunning scenery. There is skiing here to suit everybody and the village has three ski and snowboard schools as well as childcare. There are over 70 restaurants in the village including one that has twice been voted Switzerland's best restaurant. Walking around the village is easy but there are also several ski bus routes (free), a ski train as well as electric taxis. Apres-ski is well served by numerous bars near the bottom of the slopes. Free ski passes for the under-9's!

Saas Fee is an equally stunning summer resort with plenty to keep you occupied - adventure forest, gorge climbing, rock climbing, toboggan run, ice caves, walking trails and feeding the marmots - all in the beautiful fresh mountain air!

Other Activities: Adventure forest, toboganning, rock climbing, ice climbing, glacier excursions
