Chalets in Saas Fee
Chalets in Saas Fee offer affordable luxury and are perfect for a comfortable family ski holiday. Saas Fee has car-free streets, lots of traditional alpine charm and wide, easy beginner slopes right at resort level. Our favourite Saas Fee chalet is Chalet Jessica which has amazing south westerly views over the resort centre and towards the resort's glacial peaks.
We have several other chalets in Saas Fee that, like Chalet Jessica, are also located near the Hannig cable car station. However, this lift does not access the ski area so it's necessary to walk through the resort centre to the main lifts at the other end of town. Initially this would seem a pain but, firstly, the resort is car-free so a walk through this traditional resort is one of the pleasures of a ski holiday taken here, secondly, skis and boots are usually left over night at ski hire shops near to the main lifts so that walking from the chalets in Saas Fee to the main lifts is not only a scenic experience but also a comfortable one.
Until 2014 there were two or three very good value chalet hotels in Saas Fee that were situated right at the foot of the nursery slopes and very close to the main Alpin Express cable car. These offered fantastic value for money and a highly practical accommodation solution much loved by UK families looking for a hassle free ski holiday. However, recent changes in Swiss employment law meant that low paid UK 'seasonnaires' (usually on their gap year) who staffed these properties could no longer be employed. It would of course be possible to run these chalet hotels using local Swiss staff but their higher wage costs would inevitably be passed on to the UK guests, which would push the cost of a holiday beyond the reach of the target market. Sadly the chalet hotels of Saas Fee no longer exist.
