Upmarket, modern and very homely MGM apartment - right in the heart of Samoens

Overview

Property

Updated: 19-Nov-2016
Fabulous apartment in Samoens, Rhone-Alpes. An ideal, year-round base, perfect for accessing mountain life.

High quality, new built (2010) MGM apartment, with two bedrooms (one with en suite shower), bathroom, seperate WC and large kitchen/lounge room with lovely mountain views. Sleeps 5 comfortably. Superb location - a 30 second stroll from main square, yet set in secluded, private gardens to the Eastern side of Samoens, part of an exclusive area which benefits from avoiding all of the main village thoroughfares and hence is unusually quiet, away from almost all traffic and noise. Ski locker and secure, underground parking included. Discounted rental rate agreed with nearby equipment hire shop, with lockers available at Samoens 1600.

About the Owner

The Angel family. The four of us bought this wonderful apartment in Samoens because of our love of the French Alps, not only for skiing but also to enjoy mountain life all year round. As two families, with five children between us, we needed to find a resort in France that suited the widest possible variety of holiday and holiday maker. Once we visited Samoens, a truly beautiful Alpine village, we knew our search was over! We have bought this apartment primarily for our own use and as a result, it is equipped as if it is our home. We feel 'home from home' whenever we stay in the village and we hope that all our visitors feel as happy and comfortable as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"A wonderful apartment very clean and comfortable close to the village and only a short drive to The Grand Massif Express which gives quick access to the entire Grand Massif ski area. The underground secure parking and lift access to the apartment is very useful. The apartment was very clean and warm when we arrived and the beds, towels and sheets are of a very high quality, the kitchen is well equipped. We are a family of 5 with 3 teenage kids and the apartment was perfect"



"Samoens is a great place to spend winter or summer. We have stayed at this very new apartment twice and it is perfect for our family with three small children. The property is part of a very high quality development, in a peaceful location and only a 60 second walk from the centre of town. The amazing balcony provides all day sun. If you want a holiday in the mountains, look no further"

We had such a wonderful stay in this centrally located, but very quiet apartment. The place was very spacious, decorated really well and very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed, even bags to carry shopping! Light and bright, a large balcony and toasty warm, which was very welcome after a hard day skiing! Oh and the hot water never ran out - even with four long showers a day! Would definetely recommend!

Samoens is a wonderful place to visit all year round and carries the designation of a "ville fleurie" distinguishing it as one of the most beautiful towns in France. In Winter, Samoens offers a first class skiing experience, accessed via a new lift on the edge of town. The lift climbs quickly up to Samoëns 1600, and then provides easy access to Grand Massif, France’s biggest ski area, with 265km of piste offering a variety of terrain for all levels, very reliable snow cover and a pleasing lack of queues. Samoens has much to offer all year round especially in the Summer, with amazing facilities and opportunities to all things outdoors.
