Perfect for Summer or Winter

Lovely purpose built Chalet in a superb location, looking over Samoens and to the mountains. Access to the centre is very easy. The Chalet is perfect for 2 couples, lots of (clean) space and well equipped. Descriptions accurate.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic chalet , Best we have ever stayed in, lovely views and so close to the town. It is equipped with everything you could need and in our option ( bearing in mind it was half-term) good value for money.

Would definitely come back.

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week here with our children aged 8 and 5 this August. The chalet is very comfortable, clean and well equipped . It is also very well located as its only a 5 minute walk into Samoens which is a bustling little town with lots of lovely places to eat and drink. Being slightly elevated there are fabulous views from the balcony over the Giffre Valley, and the balcony gets the sun ( weather allowing!) most of the day. We had a really lovely week exploring the local area where there is lots to do including walking, mountain biking, swimming, the summer luge at Morzine,etc. The owner was very helpful when arranging our stay and gave us lots of information / tips to make the stay more enjoyable. We would definitely recommend staying here and hope to return.

A SUPERB LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

We are regular visitors to Samoens and this is the third property we have stayed it in. Quite simply "it ticks all the boxes".

We will happily stay here again, clean comfortable well equipped with stunning views.

The owner is a pleasure to deal with, responsive and friendly nothing is too much trouble.

We would recommend this to our friends if they wanted a holiday in a mountain village.

The Village has a number of good restaurants, the obligatory cake shops and a mile or so out of town a well stocked Supermarket.

Best ski holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Just a quick email to say what a wonderful time we all had. I fell in love with Samoens immediately. Your chalet is wonderful. Its in a great location and very welcoming. A true home from home. Both the boys and I had the most lovely time. The skiing was excellent. We loved wandering around the town. Kimberly (ESF) was terrific with the boys. And the open air ice skating in the town centre topped it off.

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed it. We definitely want to come back.

Thank you ever so much for letting us rent your Chalet. We'll be back, maybe even in the Summer!

Fantastic !!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth visit to Samones, the first to this wonderful apartment. The apartment was well situated a short walk from the village which has some lovely resturants and bakeries, near enough to pop down before breakfast and get some hot bread. The apartment is really well equiped - it really is like a home from home ! This is the first time we have had english TV whilst in a rented apartment and it was really nice to sit down after a hard day skiing and watch the winter Olympics ! All in all a wonderful holiday...we will return !

Location

From the Owner

We first visited Samoens in 2005 and fell in love with the place. The extensive skiing offers something for everyone - skiers, boarders, beginners, off-piste enthusiasts, children. - and we knew it would be the sort of place we could keep going back to. In addition the town is charming, in the winter it oozes warmth with vin chauds available as you wander around, whilst out of the ski season it is calm and invites you to linger over a coffee in the square watching the world go by. We were astounded by the variety of activities available in the summer and when our friends have visited it seems that children of all ages can be easily occupied. We have tried to create a really comfortable home in Samoens and if you decide to visit we hope you will love it too.

From the Owner

The closeness to the town so that it is easy to pop down to buy fresh croissants for breakfast, or walk to a restaurant for dinner but the elevation above the town to be a little away from it and enjoy the far reaching views.
