About Tom Reynolds

We bought this apartment in 2004 when it was newly finished and have been travelling to the Alps regularly ever since; initially on adventure holidays to bike, walk, climb and ski and - now we have two small girls - to take advantage of the great facilities that Samoens has to offer for all ages.

Unfortunately, work gets in the way of us spending as much time as we'd like there, so we rent it out to others, many of whom haven't been to Samoens before. The majority of visitors keep returning because it's in a great central spot and Samoens is a beautiful medieval village that is bustling all year round.

We hope you choose to stay here and enjoy it as much as we do!

Nice cosy spot with good access to the town and the main ski lift

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over Christmas in this apartment. It's well located and the proximity to the town and the Sherpa Supermarket downstairs are very convenient. The place itself is nice, cosy and modern, a good base for other activities (of which there are many in Samoens). Would definitely recommend to others.

Another lovely visit

  • 5 of 5

We always feel at home here. Dealing with Tom is great and reliable. The apartment is very well equipped and very clean. All the info about the village is really helpful and just what is needed. We have been visiting Samoans and staying at Tom' s place for many years and it' s always great. One year our Canadian friends stayed there and we're very impressed and also delighted with the apartment.

We will be back. Thanks Tom. Sandy

Great property with all the essentials.

  • 4 of 5

A good size property for 4 people. Loads of parking space for large cars in the underground car park. Great location by the town square and not far from the ski lifts, the main reason we booked the property. Ideally set up for self catering with all the kitchen essentials you may need and more. Well looked after and nice and clean when we arrived, we would definitely stay here again.

Great apartment in lovely village.

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, well equipped, comfortable and clean. Good customer service from owners, they gave us lots of information about Samoens and ideas for things to do which was very useful. The property is well situated only a few minutes walk from village centre and with the Sherpa supermarket downstairs. Samoens is beautiful with so much to do and breathtaking scenery, kids loved the high ropes, swimming, cable car rides and ice creams! Further afield the luge at Morzine is fun. Annecy, Chamonix and Yvoire are worth a visit. Would certainly recommend a visit in the summer.

Lovely apartment in Samoens

  • 5 of 5

Extremely central for town, ski bus and lifts, a good sized apartment with all required amenities for a comfortable holiday. Private underground parking and generous ski locker makes this a hassle free holiday. Very helpful owner. We'll be back.....
