In the heart of the Swiss Alps

They still exist–genuine Alpine villages. Saanen is one of them. And that is as much due to its harmonious village appearance. The homely chalets belong here, just like the mountains and cattle. They give the holiday region of Saanenland its timeless charm. If the village and its people remain true to themselves, that is to say exude Alpine authenticity. Then guests and visitors will also feel happy and at home. The architecture of the Saanenland upholds the traditions of the region and contributes to this sense of well-being.

Welcome to Saanenland

The beautiful Bauten-style chalets are one of the hallmarks of the Saanenland. Rich ornamentation, flower decorations on the balconies in summer. Since the 1960s, legislation has attached great importance to retaining the typical character of the villages. Today the Saanenland people construct the majority of the new chalets in red brick, but then clad them with timber. That is what gives the villages such a warm and homely feel. Even if they don't all conform to the original "Saanenhaus" template, they nevertheless remain true to the broader approach to chalet-building.
