The double master bedroom (Alphubel) is adjacent to the living area and there is also a cloakroom with basin and WC on this floor. On the half landing, there is an office/study, ideal for using your computer. WiFi is accessible throughout the property. Upstairs, a twin bedroom (Mittaghorn) and second double bedroom (Langfluh) share the family bathroom. A third double bedroom (Cow Bell) shares an en-suite shower room with another twin (Waldesruh) which makes a lovely family suite if required. Wellness and ski rooms in the basement.
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!
We live at Bamburgh, Northumberland in the North East of England. Our children learnt to ski in Saas-Fee in the nineties and we have since been to similar resorts throughout Switzerland and Austria but none better than Saas-Fee!

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.
Jessica Sechs is our second home rather than a holiday let. She has a great location with wonderful views, a family suite, a study/office, Persian Gabbeh rug, 2 way log fire, BOSE sound and TV's throughout, hair dryers in all bathrooms, WiFi, Miele coffee machine.......
"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".
Jessica Sechs provides beautifully appointed and spacious accommodation for 8 or 10 people. The apartment is located in the centre of the village close to all the restaurants and bars and a short walk from the start of the ski area and lifts. Everything worked superbly from the pick-up at the parking area to the return to car. Great views of the mountains from the dining area. We have been to Saas-Fee a number of times, staying in both hotels and other apartments, Jeesica Sechs is the best, would definitely go back again.
What a fabulous spot. March 2015 was our 4th family visit – an opportunity to enjoy once again this stunning apartment and to catch up with old friends. Over the years we have managed to celebrate several New Years and Birthdays plus Easter.The apartment is very well appointed and equipped with everything you could possibly need. It is always a pleasure to return to following a day on the slopes, particularly when the fire is on in the depth of winter! We have very much enjoyed just spending time in the comfort of Jessica.
Will we return for another holiday soon? Definitely!
This is my third visit to this special place, and it just keeps getting better. Always with good company and making fond memories, for me it's a winter battery recharge with so much skiing still to explore. The apartment is of a very high standard and maintained so well with a very homely settled style and makes it feel like a home from home, I hope it does not become too popular as I would not want to stay anywhere else in Saas Fe. Thank you Mr & Mrs Brett.

We enjoyed our stay very much. We spent Christmas week at Jessica Sechs with our newborn baby as well as our parents and in laws.
The flat is beautiful, comfortable and very well-equipped. All the furniture and decoration has been chosen with great care and the result is a perfect mix between traditional alpine features and modern comfort. Moreover everything was spotlessly clean and well taken care of. We felt just like at home.
We were lucky to have a lot of snow for Christmas and spent many cozy evenings by the fireplace enjoying the magnificient views from the flat.
We would definitely stay at Jessica Sechs again and can only recommend it to anyone considering a holiday in Saas Fee.
The apartment was everything we could have wished for and more. We were greeted by Laura who showed us round and told us everything we needed to know and left us her number should we need anything else. The property was extremely clean and well maintained. The kitchen had all the appliances you might want (except a microwave) and was well equipped. The beds were made up in beautiful white linen and we had plenty of towels each. We were a party of six adults and five young children and the accommodation suited us very well. The location was very good - not far from the town and shops and also not far from the main ski area and lifts. With having young children we didn't eat out in the restaurants so I can't really comment on them. The owners were extremely helpful and provided us with lots of information before and during our stay. I would definitely recommend this property.
The apartment is right in the middle of the village, near the Café Central, and very close to the Hannig Lift which serves a 5km sledging run, all year walking and summer mountain bike or scooter riding.
The Ski Lifts are a flat 7 minute walk through the village. You can leave your equipment and boots at the foot of the nursery slopes in a free ski room. On the way home you will pass the shops so it is easy to collect your groceries or just have a drink as you wander along the main thoroughfare.
A new gondola has been planned to provide express access to the ski slopes. The base station will be located near the tourist information office, a short walk from Jessica. Phase 2 will connect Längfluh to the Feejoch (3880m) opening potential links with Täsch and Zermatt.
The Butchers and Bakers shops, along with the Pharmacy, UBS and Cesar Sport, are all very close to Chalet Jessica. The south end of the car park, the tourist office and bus terminal are all within a 3 minute walk.
Golf: There is a 9 hole golf course and driving range on the Kalbermatten and Stafelwald nursery slopes.
The local Golf Club Matterhorn is on the way to Zermatt between Randa and Tasch. This 18 hole course which opened in 2004 is great fun and has some challenging holes. See http://www.golfclubmatterhorn.ch/
Further afield, there is another 18 hole course at Leuk and Crans Sur Sierre, host to the European Masters, is about an hour away by car; a great course with spectacular views of the Rhone valley.
The village nursery slopes are excellent for learning on. There are two areas, one easy and one slightly steeper. You can get a pass to cover just this area.
The next step (and also for nervous intermediates):
Either: take the cable car up to Felskinn and ski from there down the blues to Morenia. Take the second half of the Alpin Express to get back to Felskinn. There are lots of lifts between Felskinn and Morenia which you can use (serving blue, and some red runs). Use the lifts to get back to the village.
Or: take the Speilboden lift (known as the ‘Orange bubble’), then catch the cable car up to Langfluh. Take the T Bar above this for the most fantastic long, blue cruising run above here. It is high enough to have great snow all season long. From here you can easily connect back to Morenia, but this involves one steep section which turns what would be a blue run into a red run. Use the lifts to get back to the resort.
