About the Owner

Hi. We are two families that have been friends now for 12 years having met at ante-natal classes. We decided some time ago that we wanted a holiday home and made several trips out to the Alps before finding our ideal property. We all love the mountains and enjoy the outdoor life. We first visited Samoens on a very wet and miserable day. We loved it, so knew on a perfect sunny day it would be glorious. It's our second home and we hope you love it as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Many thanks for letting us use your apartment. The location is very convenient and useful for ski bus and walks around village. jan13

The location of the apartment is so convenient, 2 minutes walk to the bus stop and village. Skiing excellent, locals are very friendly and you can get all you need in 1 centre. Definately will go back Jan 13

We had a brilliant time, snow was superb and the apartment was very comfortable. We would have no hesitation in returning or recommending this property. The skiing is suitable for all levels of skier with plenty of off-piste and the pistes are lovely wide motorways. There are some lovely and reasonably priced restaurants. Feb 12

We loved this flat- it was a real home from home. But it had the advantage of a view of the Ski lift -not something we enjoy here in Herefordshire!! It was quiet and peaceful, but only a few minutes walk from the beautiful Market square and plentiful shops and bars. With a ski bus stop only a minute away,

A fabulous apartment in stunning Samoens

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is acurately described as in the online listing and I found it to be spotlessly clean, well maintained and very well equipped with everything we could possibly have needed for our stay, e.g washing machine, dishwasher, fridge, oven, stove, crockery, glassware, flatscreen TV/DVD player, DVD'S, ipod dock/speakers and patio table and chairs. Beds were comfortable and the towels and bedding was nice. The shower was reliable and powerful and quite spacious. Two toilets was a bonus. The apartment is in a smart modern apartment block and the location is excellent. Only a minutes walk to the town square and less than ten minutes walk to the ski lift. The view from the apartment balcony, living room and master bedroom is lovely of trees and gardens with the mountains beyond. I would not hesitate in recommending this very reasonably priced and good value property and indeed I have already booked my next trip.

From the Owner

We were thinking of buying in Les Gets, but our cousin, who lives in Les Gets said he wished he had bought in Samoens. So we decided to take a look. On the day we visited, it was raining and quite cold, but we knew if we liked Samoens then, we would love it when the sun shone. And we do! We both have small children and wanted our apartment to be very child friendly to make holidaying as easy as possible for the parents. We love the fact the Samoens is a 'proper town' and not just a ski resort. It is open all year and our children love visiting the weekly market.

Special interest holidays:

Climbing: There is excellent climbing nearby, including the Haut Giffre (Les Dents Blanches and Les Avoudrues) and spectacular limestone cliffs at Sixt Fer a Cheval. The Gorges des Tines also has several excellent sports climbing sectors: the Tines sector, with routes ranging from 5a to 8a, the Fonts sector, with routes from 5c to 8b, and the Dard area. For those who are looking to try something a little different, there is also the Mont Via Ferrata perched high on the dramatic Mont crags.

Great mountain bike area - ski lifts open in peak summer to get up high onto the mountains

Also there is ice climbing, cross country skiing, dog sledding, ice skating, caving, snowshoeing, sledging, paragliding etc. In high season a children’s train runs around the resort. In the summer, the resort has lots to offer; mountain biking, walking, white water rafting, parascending, lakes and adventure parks for the children including outdoor swimming pool complex.

It is an ideal base to watch the Tour De France.


There is a man made beach on the lake at Morillon which is 6km away and well worth the visit.

From the Owner

Our Apartment is so close to the town, that even on the worst snowy night, you can walk to a restaurant without getting too cold. It is within walking distance to the Grand Massif Express Gondola, even in ski boots, or for the easier option, there is always the ski bus. The balcony is perfect on a lovely evening to sit out with a Gin and Tonic and watch the sunset behind the mountain. We have included lots of games, books, plastic plates, beakers and cutlery with small children in mind. For the bigger ones, the PlayStation, satellite TV and DVD go down very well. For us, it is home from home and so far, all our guests say the same.
