Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful holiday in the apartment in Samoens. Everything was great there. We really enjoyed staying in your apartment and hope we can go to Samoens to ski again. Thank you! (C. Chen)

We enjoyed our stay very much! Your place was very nice. The trip was amazing! Thanks for letting us share your place! (Kandice)

Just to let you know that we had a great time in your apartment. We thought that it was really well equipped and that it had a great view and lovely décor. The location was ideal - in that the 5 minute or so walk into Samoens

was just right, and of course, Samoens was wonderful. The children enjoyed playing in the outdoor pool, and we thought that the staff on reception were very pleasant and helpful. In general we had a fantastic time and would recommend it to anyone. Many thanks for letting us stay there and we hope you have many more satisfied visitors!

Great family skiing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely five days in the apartment in Samoens. An easy short walk to the regular skibus. The apartment was small but well kept and very comfortable with everything we could need as a family. It was a nice short walk into Samoens village which was lovely. We managed without a car easily. Denise was very helpful and quick to respond to any of our questions.

Despite two days dodgy weather we still had a great holiday and then three lovely days really made it! The skiing in the area was fantastic.

We would recommend it, thanks!

A great chalet in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Samoens at this property. There were four of us on a mountain biking trip. The Chalet had plenty of room for everyone and was clean and well presented when we arrived. The secured parking was an added bonus for keeping the bikes safe in the car over night. Unfortunately the chair lifts in Samoens closed due to us arriving late in the season but Les Gets and Morzine were only a 30-40 minute drive away each morning. Denise the owner was very quick to respond to any enquiries we had and we would definitely stay again. Thank you!

Apartment at Les Fermes

  • 5 of 5

Wow – we stayed at the flat over the last few days and cannot fault it. The flat was perfectly sized and located with everything we needed at our disposal. Denise and Phil were so easy to liaise with and booking the rental was a dream. We loved the place so much we would have no hesitation in recommending the rental to anyone. The lifts were nearby, the town and the location is second to none. The whole place is so warm and welcoming it feels like home the instant you walk in. The resort is so family friendly and the flat family friendly too so its accessible to everyone and the location doesn’t get any better. The pool and steam room are a very welcome sight after the first days skiing. 10/10”

Les Fermes des Samoens

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in Samoens before we found the ski chalet very easy to find, the directions we given were also good. We found the chalet to be of a good standard and comfortable, with everything we required for our stay there. To get into Samoens village was a very easy 10 minute walk from the chalet and it was the same to get to the Telecabine following the path along the river. We enjoyed both the pools as the weather at our time there was very warm, also the reception staff were very helpful.

Many thanks to Denise & Phil for a lovely stay at their chalet.

Les Fermes de Samoens

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great skiing holiday in Samoens and stayed in Denise & Phil's apartment. The apartment was ideal for us - warm, comfortable, and ideally located for both the ski bus and for a relaxing stroll into the village. The apartment was clean and is so easy to maintain while you're there.

The added benefits of the pool and sauna after a tough day's skiing were welcome, and being able to park underground was a bonus (particularly after some heavy snow).

We would definitely recommend this apartment.
