Lovely ski chalet
The chalet is a wonderfull place to relax after a ski day in Saas-Fee. It is a very nicely decorated with many media equipment (kids loved it :)). You feel at home immediately. We had a great holiday with 4 adults and 6 kids. The contact with the owner and the local support was outstanding. I would recommend this to my relatives.
Thank you Kees for your lovely review, and thank you also for being such wonderful guests. We are delighted that all of your family found plenty to entertain in Chalet Zuckmayer and would love to welcome you and other family members again sometime.
Cosy chalet - perfect for two families
The chalet was very nice and clean, well situated in Saas Fee and well equipped. The style is kept in line with the age of the chalet, which only adds to the cosines of the place. Pick up service worked perfectly and the service team was great.
The only thing one has to be aware of is the height of the ceiling here and there, and the beds are not for the tallest people, neither the double beds nor the kids beds.
Thanks Karina for your feedback, delighted that you liked the location & chalet style; just to add that we are replacing the kids bunkbeds with larger 2 m beds more suited to older teenagers & small adults. The two larger bedrooms have Double beds of standard size but very tall guests will need to grab the King size bed first.
A lovely time
A charming chalet in a charming resort. Chalet Zuckmayer enabled us to enjoy a lovely family Christmas break home from home. Well stocked property. Car free village a great feature of the area. Would happily return.
Great chalet to stay in Saas Fee
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 :-)
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
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!
We are delighted that you loved the chalet, we very much hope you visit us again!
