Guestbook comments from the manager

4 of us had a fantastic time skiing with lots of après skiing in the fab village and in your lovely flat. The perfect place to celebrate my birthday with the girls. I am already looking at flights for next year but only if your place is available! Anna Robinson, Leeds

We wanted somewhere that was perfect for a couple for a romantic break along with a bit of excitement and we got what we were looking for with your apartment. Absolutely perfect! Fantastic skiing. We couldn't have asked for more. Martina and John Young, Windsor

Just had the best family holiday in your flat in Samoens over New Year. The place was perfect for the children, the New Year festivities were great in the market square. Nothing we can criticise at all. Daisy and James Buxton, Clerkenwell

What a place. I had wanted to visit the Alps in summer and hadn't realised what I'd been missing all these years. The mountain biking was amazing, as was relaxing around the lake. Lucy Shepherd, Potters Bar

Beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week with my husband and 14 and 21 year old offspring. They slept well in the bunk beds and the double bed is very comfy. We took fans as we are always too hot at night and these did help. We ate out twice. The town has plenty of good places to eat and lovely patisseries for a cake with coffee. We made good use of the balcony to eat and barbecued twice. The apartment is well equipped with everything you need. The journey from Calais was 9 hours not 7 as suggested and we only stopped for toilet and fuel breaks. It was worth it for the spectacular walks and bike rides. We enjoyed exploring the local area on bikes and it feels very safe as the roads are quiet. The tracks by the river are very pretty and we cycled to Morillon one day to the lake which was lovely and only took about 20 mins by the river. Enjoyed swimming there and also the "go ape" style high wires there. We went up on the cable car where the views were spectacular and lots of well signed walks. Would have liked to stay longer and explore the wider area.

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

Samoens is the loveliest of towns with great character. The apartment was very comfortable, especially the beds after a hard day's skiing! There was good storage space and it was well kitted out. The living area was a little bit squeezed for 4 adults, but we were able to make use of the balcony as it was quite warm. Everything necessary is within walking distance so it made for a very convenient location and good value too. Would happily recommend.

Not To be Missed

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a brilliant two week break at the apartment and the village of Samoens. The apartment lived up to all expectations and more. The use of the underground secure car park was a real bonus.

The village of Samoens is very pretty and we were pleasantly pleased with all the activities that the village has to offer.

Many thanks to Judith who despite not meeting her, she was a brilliant help throughout the booking of the apartment (the directions were spot on).

I would not hesitate in recommending the apartment to anyone.

A winter in Samoens

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apartment on a long-stay basis, from January through until the end of March, as a weekend retreat whilst living temporarily in Lyon. In this respect the apartment was perfect for us as it enjoys a very central location, is well managed and, as you might expect from a MGM property, is finished to a high standard. We appreciated the ease of access, the underground car park, ample storage space and the fact that the ski shuttle bus stops close by. We frequently invited guests to come an stay with us, and enjoyed many an evening sitting around the dining table with friends after a day's skiing. The apartment is warm (we rarely used the radiators) and the balcony proved to be a bonus when spring came early as we were able to sit out in the late afternoon when the snow dictated an early finish. Judith, who runs the apartment on behalf of her god-daughter, couldn't have been more cooperative and ensured we enjoyed a trouble-free stay. I would thoroughly recommend the apartment for couples or for families with a couple of children/teenagers as there is a second bedroom but it is equipped with bunk beds (we did have adults staying in bunks but only for a couple of days).

Samoens itself is a fabulous base for a winter holiday, and much has been written elsewhere about its charm. Getting there is quick and very straightforward and this is another reason why we chose this resort. From here the whole of the Grand Massif ski area is easily accessible via the fast gondola, and despite spending the entire winter here we never tired of exploring the vast array of ski runs.

In short, we would recommend this apartment and the resort of Samoens to any future guest.

Samoens Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday over the Christmas period, the apartment is right in the town so very convenient, it met all our needs and was a great base for exploring the area. The underground car park was a great way of getting luggage and shopping into the apartment, just need to make sure you use the right lift!

It was nice to have a king size bed and really comfortable bedding and there was pretty much everything we needed in the apartment, there are also extras not mentioned on the web site, for example a hair dryer and blankets, etc.

The local restaurants were all open over Christmas and the shops stayed open late creating a really lovely atmosphere in the town. There were plenty of events on each day and evening making it very festive in the town including plays, markets, fireworks and ice skating, etc. There were a lot of events especially for children.

The apartment is a short walk from the lift to the ski hill or the ski bus stops very close. There are a couple of general grocery stores a short walk away and a large Carforr which is 5 minutes drive.

We visit this area frequently and would definately stay at this apartment again.

Nearest Airport: Geneva / Geneve - 57 kms

Nearest Train: Cluses - 19 kms

Nearest Port: Calais - 869 kms

Although car hire is not necessary for a skiing holiday at Samoëns (there are good transfers from the airport - we will give you all the links necessary), if you wish to visit further afield then a car is essential.

In the summer a car is essential to discover the wonderful experiences that the area around Samoëns has to offer.


Annecy - 71 kms

Geneva - 57 kms

Further Details:

Samoens is well known for skiing but it is also the perfect destination for those interested in alpine summer holidays for the whole family, as well as catering for dedicated sports enthusiasts. The weather is good with average temperatures between May and September of 20 to 30C. There is a whole host of activities and the scenery is quite simply breath-taking. You can enjoy everything from swimming in the lifeguarded mountain lakes and pools, to hiking, rafting, rock climbing, parapenting, mountain biking, and road biking. The evenings cool down nicely so sleeping in the apartment is never a problem! There are two Indiana Adventure parks close by and a number of golf courses.
