Why choose Saas Fee?
Car free - Saas Fee is a sort of miniature Zermatt without the conspicuous consumption. Good snow is guaranteed, even late in the season. The altitude you spend most of your day at – between 2500m and 3500m is unrivalled in the Alps. Good for beginners and intermediates. Snowboarders are well catered for too with ‘Fun Parks’. For non skiers, the Hannig lift provides access to the non-ski area which has many marked footpaths, and also the sledging run.
Why choose Jessica Sechs?
Chalet Jessica may not be in a ski-in, ski-out position, but she is in the very centre of the peaceful car free village. We looked at lots of property before settling on Jessica. She is a 7 minute walk from the ski lifts, but the walk is pretty flat, and your muscles will be gently warmed before you set off to break the downhill record on your first run.......
On the way home in the afternoon you will pass the shops so it is easy to collect all your groceries, do some serious shopping, or just have a drink as you wander along the main thoroughfare. You can leave your ski equipment at the foot of the nursery slopes in lockers (free service if you rent equipment).
Sledging...HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!: Hire your sledges (CHF8) from the ‘Hannig’ Lift Station next to the apartment (leave a credit card or cash deposit at the lift station). Hang your sledges on the back of the gondola. The sledge run is 6km long. Don’t forget to leave time to stop for a Gluwein at the ‘Fondue Hutte’ near the end of your run!

About Alistair or Alison Brett

On the way home in the afternoon you will pass the shops so it is easy to collect all your groceries, do some serious shopping, or just have a drink as you wander along the main thoroughfare. Other properties may be nearer the lifts, but often up a hill fit for a mountain goat. Others are much further out of the village in the Wildi area. You can leave your ski equipment at the foot of the nursery slopes in lockers (free service if you rent equipment).
Trust us….we looked at many locations before finding this one.

Guestbook comments from the owner
"Thank you very much for renting your wonderful apartment to us. Everything we needed was here and it felt like being at home but with better views! Chalet Granny said she would definitely come again!
We have had a wonderful week; sunshine 5 out of 6 days and despite being April, still enough snow for the kids to learn on the nursery slopes before they made it up the mountain with us. All your useful tips - Eskimos, shops, booking return bus - have made the holiday even easier".
