About Susan

Early 2005 Kevin and I sold our home near Tunbridge Wells, I left my role as a manager for John Lewis in London & commuting and Kevin his life in the plumbing trade.

We bought a dilapidated farmhouse La Tataz, did a lot of the renovation ourselves.

Started our catered ski chalet business Xmas 2005 and were able to indulge our passions for skiing, entertaining, cooking and homemaking.

A couple of years later another interesting property near by came on the market, Cristal.

We enjoyed renovating & furbishing it in a contemporary Alpine style. It was hard work again but rewarding & at least for Chalet Cristal we had a bit more experience!

Since then we added an apartment in Samoens centre, again gutting it and modernising.

Susan purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Susan chose Flaine - Grand Massif

Kevin spotted this apartment it had such a great central location, but needed gutting & redesigning & fitting out, his next project.

We are very proud of the way it worked out,& everyone has enjoyed the location and the comfort & convience of La Place.

La Place is in the historic centre of Samoens, in a square just off the busier main square. Just sit on the balcony and watch all of French life, shopping, sitting outside taking a coffee, & watching the Sat weddings & funerals in the week!

What makes this apartment unique

We enjoy the fact that everything is newly done and up to date.

After staying over the years in what appeared to be good looking French accommodation but realizing too late how they didn't suit how we liked to live.

As with our other properties we designed & equipped La Place, trying to think of all the practical things that make things easier, so it would be a home from home.

The layout of the apartment works well, enough space to relax with friends with a 4 & a 2 seater comfortable sofas - & a white laminate well equipped kitchen with enough work space. Bathroom with a shower/bath & heated towel rail for dry towels.

Entrance with coat/shoe rack.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aug 2012 - Mark & family -Reading

I wanted to drop you a line to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at La Place last weekend. You really have made a terrific apartment, beautifully equipped and decorated and such a brilliant location. I’m amazed how you managed to organise the weather too, but we were able to swim in the river near Morillon every day, went up in the cable car, and canyoning near Les Carroz. Lovely places to eat too, especially La Tornalta. A very relaxing break and we are sure we will be returning – thank you.



Aug 2012 -Once again can I thank you for offering such a perfect location and apartment . We have been to several in the alps and yours was by far the most perfect. Jan & Doug, North Lanarkshire.

The Harris Family - We've had a great week, kids did well in ski school, thanks Kevin & Susan for a great apartment and your support. See you next season.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

A great apartment in the heart of beautiful Samoëns right on the village square by the town hall and stunning church. Even thought it is near bars/restaurants, it is very quiet. The apartment was clean on arrival and is a good size for a family of 4. The kitchen was well-stocked, the beds were very comfortable and the shower was strong (essential to help with sore muscles at the end of a day's skiing!). Parking was very easy either in the free carpark by the police station/town hall (1 min away) or in the overflow free car park behind it. The only time either the car park got a bit busy (but still with plenty of spaces) was on market day on Wednesday. The owner, Susan, was extremely helpful with all the booking and also gave us details of ski hire shops, airport transfers and ski schools (In the end we hired a car at Geneva with rentalcars.com, hired our skis with Xtreme Glisses as it's so close to the main lift and the children had ski lessons with ESF). This is our fourth visit to Samoëns and we loved every minute of our week here. We will definitely be back.

Lovely Apartment

  • 4 of 5

We returned to Samoens this year as we'd promised ourselves we would do but fancied staying more in the centre of town this time. The apartment provided just what we needed as far as location was concerned and in addition it was an ideal lay-out for four, clean with everything you might need to hand. The balcony provided an ideal people watching spot (especially the Pokemon hunters!), with an awe inspiring mountain view to boot. We would happily book another stay.

Fantastic apartment in the heart of Samoens

  • 5 of 5

The apartment couldn't be more central with convenient parking and a few seconds walk to the square. La Place had everything we needed for a fantastic family ski holiday and we'd recommend it to anyone, and hope to return. Susan was very helpful throughout the booking process.

A perfect French experience

  • 5 of 5

A perfect apartment set in a beautiful French town with amazing scenery. If you want to experience the French way of life you couldn't choose a better place to do it in. La Place is a spacious and spotless apartment with great views. The town has plenty of shops for everything from food to clothing and gifts. The Wednesday market is fantastic and there is a great choice of restaurants and bars. I loved it all!
