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!

Tom and Luci Reynolds

This is a very well located and appointed apartment a short stroll or bus to the main Gondola. Two minutes from centre of town and main shops and bars but has the benefit of its own supermarket right downstairs! Would recommend and Tom very easy to deal with. Many thanks.

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
