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.

Top - Spot !

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in Saas-Fee and the first time in Chalet Daphne. If you are searching for a charming, luxurious, nicely decorated, well located and fully equipped chalet where you can have a careless and relaxing break, look no further. This place is really spot-on and we will certainly go back there !

Wonderful place! Could not recommend enough!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Saas Fee and in chalet Daphne. The chalet is beautiful and has lovely views. The top floor is particularly airy and light with the huge windows that look over the mountains.

Location wise a ski bus will take you from the chalet (pretty much right outside) to the slopes though I often walked as it was a lovely walk into the town and not too far at all.

Saas Fee itself is beautiful and there is lots to do for both skiers and non-skiers.

Sue was very helpful before our stay and Colin the chalet manager was helpful during our stay. Also as we had a massive delay with our flight and could not get to a shop on the way, the bread and other essentials left for us (but most of all the chocolate) was incredibly unexpected and very welcome!

I would definitely stay here again! We loved it!

My biggest recommendation would be a little restaurant that is about a ten minutes walk away from the main town on the way to saas grund called (waldhus bodmen - I think!) it was so lovely! We went there several times as my daughter loved the rabbits, guinea pigs and chickens!

Chalet Daphne. The Photos Don't Lie

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic chalet, extremely clean, comfortable and well equipped. Can't speak highly enough of the chalet manager Colin whose help was invaluable both before and during our stay. The views are exceptional from the balconies and the underfloor heating is great. I would highly recommend this chalet, its owner and its manager to anybody thinking of staying in Saas Fee

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.

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
