Luxury in Saas-Fee: Pearl of the Alps
Saas-Fee, a jewel in the crown of exceptional ski resorts, is probably one of the best kept secrets for luxury winter holidays in the Swiss Alps. First is its impressive natural setting, located in the heart of a dramatic Mischabel range formed by 13 mountain tops of over 4000 meters, and guaranteed good snow under almost all conditions. Then it has managed to stay small and to contain its growth so that the village has nothing to envy of its more famous neighbour, Zermatt. It is also a car-free resort, so if you like the idea of Zermatt, you might want to give Saas Fee a try. Apart from magnificent luxury catered chalets, Leo Trippi also offers luxury apartments for rental, as well as luxury chalets and luxury apartments on a self-catered basis.
The ski domain boasts with 22 lifts, 150 kilometres of snow-sure pistes and a glacier at an altitude of 3600 meters. For the amateurs of cross-country skiing, there are 32 kilometres of tracks through larch forests and along the frozen river Vispa. Wonderful winter walking trails, 350 kilometres of hiking trails and some marvellous toboggan runs are available, with specials for families and children. Those with a penchant for extreme sports can try ice climbing. For the romantics, there is the possibility to enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride, to skate in the open-air ice rink and to enjoy shopping in the village. In Saas-Fee you leave your car at the entrance to the village and an electric taxi will drive you to your luxury catered chalet.
