Where you’ll be

Saas-Fee, Valais, Switzerland

The Chalet Surprise is located in the "Hogiblätt" section of Saas-Fee, a charming residential area with predominately original stand-alone chalets. The area receives the most sun in the village, and is well positioned next to the public parking lot and near the largest kids playground. A free ski bus connects directly to the lifts during the winter season, and the Chalet Surprise is 30 m from the nearest bus stop. The nearest grocery store called ‘Pam’ is a 5 min walk, with the ‘COOP’ and ‘Migros’ supermarkets a 10 min flat walk to the town center. 12 min of easy flat walking through well maintained streets brings you to the ski lifts.

Saas-Fee is a small Swiss mountain village famous for the surrounding 4000 meter peaks and glaciers, and for the mountain activities on offer year round. Saas-Fee is car-free, enhancing the sublime charm of the traditional mountain village. For an alpine village at 1800m, Saas-Fee offers a surprisingly varied choice of restaurants with local and international flavors. The town is particularly suited as a base for families as well as alpine enthusiasts, with infrastructure catering to needs from beginners to experts seeking mountain holiday experiences. In addition to three supermarkets, the town also has a bank, pharmacy, and multiple gift shops.
