About Delyth Johnstone

Our family of five have used our apartment in Samoens as our home from home.

Samoens has been our summer and winter base for four years, with many skiing adventures in the beautiful alpine scenery and energetic summer and autumn walks in the countryside.

Samoens has been a safe haven for the children, happy to cycle in the valley, swim in the village pool, play outside table tennis in the park and paraglide either down the snowy pistes or above the leafy summer woods.

We have enjoyed many trips into Italy and Switzerland and our family adore this area of Europe.

Nice and cozy chalet with the views to die for

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in the chalet for a week - 2 families with 2 young kids. It's a very comfortable and cozy place with everything you need. Beautiful views from an open space room. Conveniently located but will need a car to get anywhere. Although, central Samoens is just 2 min down the hill driving very close to a yummy boulangerie with the best almond croissants ever and all other shops and amenities. Would definitely stay again. Owners were very helpful. All in all had fab week and a very pleasant experience. Would benefit from the 2nd toilet.

Fabulous week spent in this lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable, warm and spacious apartment. Arrived in the dark, so had some difficulty in finding it, so nice surprise seeing beautiful view in the morning.

Easy access to the ski resort, Teenagers keen to get going in the mornings when they could see the Grand Express moving!

Would love to come back in the summer, maybe next year!

Just home from a great week skiing in beautiful Samoen. The chalet clean and very warm ( esp with the log burner) and comfortable perched at the top of a hill with amazing views. In need of some sunshine and warmth now but would love to go back and take/ hire a car, the hill kept us very fit every day. We made the mistake of thinking we were very organized in getting a private transfer.

We also bought a grand massif ski pass, unfortunately we were only able to ski in Flaine twice due to strong winds the connecting lifts were closed. Maybe better to buy on a daily basis although prob more expensive.

All in all a great week. Thank you
