About the property

Lovely apartment, close to village centre. Sleeps 4/6. Wifi inc

Built in 2002, our family owned apartment is located in a quiet part of the village yet is only 2-3 minutes walk to all the village amenities. It is comfortably furnished & well equipped for 6 people. The spacious living/dining room leads out to the large south west facing balcony furnished with chairs, table & parasol from which to enjoy the amazing mountain and valley views & 'al-fresco' meals. Our smaller east facing balcony is perfect for an outdoor breakfast or coffee in the Summer

The kitchen is well equipped for home cooking, however, there are ample restaurants in the village to cater for all tastes. The apartment sleeps up to 6 people, having one double room with a king sized bed, a smaller room with bunk beds and a single rollaway bed and a single sofa bed in the living room. A high chair and travel cot can be provided at no extra cost. The bathroom has a shower, vanity unit & washing machine whilst a separate w.c. has a hand basin.

There is ample parking around the property & we have a lockable ski store in the basement.

Full information will be provided before your stay concerning, car hire or airport transfers, ski hire, lessons and lift passes.

Samoens is an attractive, historic, former stone-masons village with plenty to see & do all the year round. Our apartment is only 2-3 minutes walk to the shops, restaurants, cinema, ice-rink etc yet is in a quiet area of the village. The Grand Massif Express ski lift is just 900m away or 5 mins in the free ski bus which stops 50m from the apartment. The Grand Massif consists of 5 linked areas totaling 290km of piste suitable for all levels of skiers & boarders. Other Winter activities include snow shoeing, nordic skiing, snow boarding, dog sleigh rides, ice skating, guided walks and much more.

Samoens is perfect for summer holidays too. The summer abounds with almost every activity you can think of; parapenting, via ferrate, white water rafting, mountain biking, hiking and swimming to name but a few. A large park, on the village outskirts, offers putting, archery, golf driving range, tennis & open air swimming pools. The Indiana Parc here is a great climbing, swinging and zip-wire activity for the young & 'young at heart'. However, if all this sounds too energetic then simply relax at a street cafe or bar or on your very own balconcy.

Our change over days are Saturday or Sunday depending on availability. In the Summer the change over day is Saturday and in the Spring and Autumn it is flexible.

About Jean

As a family we enjoy all outdoor activities, skiing, walking, cycling etc and all of these are made far more enjoyable in the beautiful area of Samoens, the Grand Massif ski area and the Giffre Valley.

Jean purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Jean chose Samoëns

We first fell in love with Samoens on a family ski holiday in 2005 and spent the next year hunting for an ideal property. Since buying the apartment in 2006 we have been returning to Samoens about 4 times a year and never tire of its charms. Although purchased as a wonderful ski base, we have been bowled over by the beauty of the area and the wealth of Summer family activities.

What makes this apartment unique

We chose this apartment for its convenience to the village centre and its spacious feel inside. We love the large West facing balcony with its views down the Giffre Valley and beautiful sunsets and in the Summer our smaller balcony, which faces East, is a lovely sunny spot for breakfast or a morning coffee.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The weather has been fantastic often reaching 30C and interspersed with the odd spectacular storm. We've had an amazing two weeks of activities:- white water rafting, via ferrata and loads of mountain biking (including part of the Tour de France which came through the area during our stay). We are also going to try our hands at canyoning before we leave.

Having stayed in Samoens during the Winter I can now say it is at least as good in the summertime----a great place!

Exactly as described, and perfect for a family of four....

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location to walk into the lovely town of Samoens, and we drove so 5 mins to the ski-lift making life very easy!

The apartment was very clean, and warm, in fact we hardly used any heating at all whilst we were there.

Perfect for our ski-ing trip! Many thanks!

Lovely clean apartment in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our ski weekend in Samoens. The apartment was great only a short drive (or bus trip) to the bottom of the ski lift and right next to the market place in Samoens. The ski area was brilliant and the village beautiful. And all this only an hours drive from Geneva. We will be back. Thank you Jean.

Another amazing week

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in the apartment and, although very different from last year (20 degrees and wonderful sunshine the entire week), we enjoyed another amazing week. The apartment was very clean upon arrival. The weather was quite cold, so we needed the winter duvets and storage heaters, which worked well and ensured we never felt chilly. We cooked in the apartment more than last year and found the kitchen very well stocked. The snow was fantastic and, as per last year, the ski hire at Xtreme Glisses was just so easy with simple parking at the bottom of the ski lifts and hardly any queuing at all. The village of Samoens is so pretty and, with the apartment being only a minute's walk away from the central square, it meant that early morning trips to the boulangerie were an easy trip.
