Buying Experts for Luxury Property in Saas Fee
The Alpine Specialist Guide to Saas Fee, Switzerland
The ski resort
The car-free ski resort of Saas Fee is the perfect location for mountain-lovers. Originally a farming village, the resort’s quaint, attractive centre appeals to both skiers and non-skiers year-round. Less glitzy than Crans Montana and less crowded than nearby Zermatt, Saas Fee has a quieter charm: the views from the village of towering peaks and tumbling glaciers are unforgettable. Sitting at an altitude of 1,800 metres, Saas Fee is well linked by train and road to Geneva, Zurich and Milan airports.
Skiing in Saas Fee
With skiing up to 3,500 metres, Saas Fee’s ski season is long and snow-sure. The panorama is spectacular too - thirteen 4,000 metre peaks are visible from the ski area. Much of the skiing is on glacial terrain with a good mix of blue, red and black pistes as well as some challenging off-piste descents away from the crevasses. For snowboarders the well-landscaped Snow Park at Mittelallalin is the star attraction and is groomed all year.
Summer in Saas Fee
Saas Fee’s summer season is long and action-packed. It is one of the few ski resorts in the European Alps to offer summer skiing and there is also plenty of high-altitude walking and climbing among the nearby mountains.
Buying luxury ski property in Saas Fee
Foreign buyers have only recently been allowed to buy ski property in the Swiss ski resort. The new opportunity has seen a rush of investors looking to buy luxury ski property for sale. Construction of new developments is limited further restricting the number of new – rather than re-sale – property on the market. There are more ski apartments available to buy than free-standing mountain chalets.
The ruling in November 2007 in Valais limits the sales of property to foreign buyers in Saas Fee. Read more about the impact of the November 2007 ruling on chalet sales in Saas Fee.
