About Andrew and Fiona Bradley

We live in Whitley Bay, North Tyneside, with our two teenage children. We are regular visitors to Samoens both to ski and enjoy the summer activities.

Andrew and Fiona Bradley purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Andrew and Fiona Bradley chose Samoëns

Having visited Samoens in summer 2008 we found it to be the perfect alpine location with plenty to offer in both summer and winter. We love the traditional atmosphere and buildings of the village and have found the local people extremely friendly. We were attracted to the property itself by its location near the village centre and larger than average lounge/dining area for a property of this size.

What makes this apartment unique

Although the property is only a few minutes walk from the centre of Samoens it is also in a picturesque and quiet setting making it the perfect location.The iconic le Criou mountain rises behind the property forming a stunning backdrop. The large 22m2 terrace to the front of the property has a lovely view across a field towards the village centre and is ideal for outdoor dining and lounging.

Comfortable and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

A lovely comfortable apartment, well equipped and maintained to a high standard. It is very handy to the town but tucked away in a quiet spot. Samoens is a fabulous very french town which has retained its character

Excellent, clean and well equipped apartment. Very convenient for all the amenities in Samoens

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in an ideal location, within a few minutes walk of the main square in Samoens yet in a nice quiet area with amazing views of the surrounding mountains. We were even able to soak up some of the Easter sunshine on the terrace after skiing. The apartment is modern, clean and has all the amenities we needed for a family holiday. There is a ski bus stop just 50m from the apartment and if you have a car the main lift to Samoens 1600 is just 3 minutes drive away. We also skied in Morzine/Les Gets which was just a 25 minute drive. Samoens itself is a lovely old village with a lot of character and has some great family restaurants. We hope to return sometime in the future.

Excellent apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a super half term in Samoëns. All the advance info provided by Andrew and Fiona made finding the apartment and orientating ourselves around the town easy.

The well equipped apartment was perfect, in a quiet location yet close to town. Ski lift was a 5 minute drive away (with free parking) or you can get the petit train/ bus from a short walk away.

Our children enjoyed their ski lessons with Zig Zag - would recommend as group size no more than 8 ensuring focus on them as individuals. Their skiing definitely improved as a result.

We all loved our stay in the apartment/ Samoëns and are very likely to return.

A luxury apartment in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at this apartment the first time we throughly enjoyed our stay and this time was just as good.

The apartment has everything you will need to make your stay perfect and the location is great as the centre of the village is about three minutes walk away.

The village is a lovely place with several restaurants ,bars and shops and even out of season there is enough life there to give it a lovely atmosphere .

The customer service by the owners is excellent to the point that on the day we arrived they sent a text to see that everything was ok.

I would recommend this property to anyone looking for the perfect place to stop in the Alps .

Lovely property, good location for town center.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay here. This is a cosy little apartment full of character. My daughter loved the bunk bed even though she's too little to sleep in one yet! We definitely hope to return in the future. Fantastic to visit a holiday home that is clearly that - a home. Well set up. Nice to have books and games rather than needing to bring absolutely everything away with you. Thank you.

An excellent property in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

The property and location exceeded our expectations and matched everything in the owners' description and more. The chalet was furnished and equipped to a very high standard and was immaculate.

Samoens is a charming, picturesque and friendly place, there are many good bars and restaurants to choose from and, best of all, it's only a few minutes walk away from the chalet.

The owners, Andrew and Fiona, provided an excellent service from our original enquiry through to the prompt return of our security deposit.

We would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone wanting to explore the French Alps.
