The Hillegonde holiday home (95 m) is around 1600 m high and located above the town of Visp, bordering the famed Saasdal (Saas Valley). You can go straight up to the ski runs from your holiday home! After an exhausting day outdoors you can come back here to relax in a warm bath or warm yourself up in front of a crackling fire in the fireplace. You can use the common swimming pool, solarium and sauna in the hotel next door for a fee.
