It's only a few miles down the mountain from Gstaad and markets
itself with its much bigger and fancier neighbor but, Saanen
is distinct in its own right. Many of the homes in the village
area look like the one in the photo on the left. Gstaad
Airport, a runway on the patch of green behind the houses,
is located in Saanen.
Is this place
hopping or is it dead in the summer?
of locals and tourists.
Is there a lake and/or golf course in town?
car the only option?
Does the place feel claustrophobic?
Lots of choices
for acccomodations (hotels/ chalets) and do I have recommendations?
with only five hotel options.
Could I spend
a whole summer here or would I get bored?
only a few miles up the road, this could be a place to spend
the whole summer.
