About Andrew Vaughan

We have skied and trekked as a family for over 30 years. Mountains are a home from home wherever in the world. In the winter we ski and in the summer my son and I scale peaks; we have Mont Blanc under our belts and I have trekked mountains across the world from Mount Fuji to the base camp at Annapurna.

Andrew Vaughan purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Andrew Vaughan chose Saas-Fee/Saas Valley

Buying Chalet Jungwald fulfilled a dream to have a home in the mountains from which we could ski and walk. We chose Saas Fee specifically for its excellent snow record and location in the heart of Switzerland's highest peaks. Being able to ski in and out was a pre-requisite and in all of the past years we have never been disappointed.

What makes this apartment unique

Ski-in and out.

Views to die for.

Immediate access to walking trails.

Chalet Jungwald - a little gem in Saas Fee

  • 5 of 5

Chalet Jungwald is a wonderful place to stay in Saas Fee. It is in a quiet location on top of a hill, but very close to the nursery slopes and just a short walk down to the shops and restaurants in town. The walk back up to the chalet gives you a good work-out but our children ages 6 and 9 managed it without any problems and the views are certainly worth it. My father in law who is 71 didn't have any problems but if you're older and not in good shape it may be somewhat challenging, but for us it was perfect.

The Chalet was immaculate when we arrived and all the furnishings and appliances are top notch. The beds are very comfortable and it was great having a bathroom for each bedroom. We felt at home right away and it was wonderful to have such a nice place to come back to after a day of skiing. There was plenty of room for the 5 of us and it was simply comfortable and clean.

Dominique was prompt and responsive and she provided a very thorough welcome packet which we found useful. The restaurant suggestions were great and we particularly enjoyed the Shaferstuble which is just a stone's throw from the chalet. We would definitely recommend this place and look forward to returning in the future.

Chalet Jungwald is Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This chalet is in a great location where you can ski in and out to the slopes. It is beautifully furnished and has an excellent kitchen for cooking great Swiss dinners. The big windows let in the sunlight and allow one to look out over the ski slopes. We recommend this chalet to anyone that wants to enjoy Saas Fee.

Superb chalet, right next to slopes.

  • 5 of 5

Saas Fee had a lovely small village feel, but with plenty of shops and restaurants. It was easy to walk everywhere and being car-free gave it a lovely safe and quiet feel.

This is an extremely high standard chalet. The online photos and description sounded great and the reality was even better! The chalet was fitted to a really high standard, feeling like home very quickly. Lots of little extra touches - board games, travel adapters etc really made a difference. Everything worked perfectly and it was potlessly clean. The views were magnificent - couldn't be faulted.

A very short walk to the nearest slope was great given that we were carrying skiis for the kids. It is a 5 minutes walk to the village with a quite steep walk when returning to the chalet which lead to some huffing and puffing on the first day or so, but we soon got used to that.

The owners were very helpful, giving good advice on travel from airport, ski school etc. The information pack provided was extremely comprehensive - which helped a lot with the holiday preparation.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this chalet due to the high standard and great location.

Beautiful clean and high quality chalet

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Saas Fee and the chalet was immaculately presented with high quality appliances. The ensuites were exceedingly spacious and beautifully designed. The chalet is situated up a fairly steep hill but we were aware of this. We still managed to wheel our cases from the bus terminal, through the town and up the hill. As we arrived early we were able to leave our luggage in the entrance area and wander in to town. Saas Fee is an excellent summer destination for hiking and the Free passes makes it a good option as you can use the local lifts, cable cars and buses for free! We did some excellent walks and you feel very close to the mountains. It is a short down hill walk to the town and everything is close at hand. The local buses are excellent and we used them to travel down the valley to start some walks. Dominique was very helpful and thorough with all the information she provided and I would not hesitate to book this chalet.

3rd stay in Chalet Jungwald : we are fans !...

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Saas Fee for 6 years now and after our 3rd stay in Chalet Jungwald, we can't do without it !

We appreciate everything : first of all the car-free village, then the chalet in itself with its high standard equipment, its quietness, its fantastic view on the mountains, its location very convenient for skiers, and the kindness of Dominique with a really good customer service. In this chalet, we really feel at home.

Our 3 children took ski and snowboard lessons at the Swiss Ski and Snowboard School and were really delighted. We were very lucky this year as sun and snow were at the rendez-vous and there was nobody on the slopes.

We also recommend to try the 5 km-long sledging trail from Hannig down to the village : a lot of fun in perspective for everyone !
