About Kate Turner

I live in Cardiff with my husband and 3 young boys (10,6 and 4). I work part time as a GP and part time as a busy mum. I have skied since I was a child and our happiest holidays are when we are in the mountains.

Kate Turner purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Kate Turner chose Samoëns

We chose Samoens as a destination after two successful family ski holidays. We found the resort and the skiing to be family friendly and the lower altitude of the town(although not the slopes)makes it an all year round destination. There is life in the square at anytime of year.

My husband is a keen road cyclist and loves the challenge of the local roads especially the infamous Joux Plane.

In the summer Samoens is lively with lots of activities for all ages.

We had a fabulous weekend staying here in Samoens.

The apartment was very easy to find and in an excellent location. Lots of parking outside, easy ski locker on the outside of the building and friendly neighbours.

The owner provided brilliant communication throughout and answered any questions very quickly and in the most friendly manor.

The apartment was 5star and everything was super clean.

It was such a lovely touch to have tea and coffee facilites after our journey.

I also thought that the Chalet Fairy was very helpful and friendly and also answered any questions immediately that I'd text.

Would 100% stay here again and fully recommend.

A great, cosy apartment in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was comfortable, warm and cosy, just what's required after a long day on the slopes. The kitchen had everything we needed, the beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of hot water in the morning and evening. Location was perfect....near the ski bus stop but also close enough to walk into town to stretch those muscles after skiing all day. We also walked to the larger Carrefour supermarket within 10 mins, ideal. A nice peaceful location. The village itself is beautiful and the mountains breathtaking. We used xtreme glisses for ski hire, very easy and great to store your skis right by the Grand Massif Express gondola every night. The free ski buses also go from that point and we had a couple of days starting from Morillon, a 5 minute bus ride away. The transfer company, Go Massif, whisked us from and to the airport very efficiently, so much so that we had an extra half day skiing the day we arrived....a bonus. Zig zag ski school were great too, can recommend Ben highly. An absolutely hassle free holiday, plus we had great weather, sunshine and snow. Thanks to Kate Turner for all the above suggestions, made everything easy......we're all planning our next trip to Samoens.
