2 Bedroom Apartment In Samoens With Private Garden

Overview

Property

Updated: 03-Dec-2016
Apartment in Samoens, Haute Savoie, Rhone-Alpes, France - Beautiful Location On Edge Of Village and 200m to Ski Bus Sto

2 bedroom, 2 en-suite bathroom ground floor apartment with WiFi in a new (2014) chalet of 9 apartments. The apartment has a private garden (south facing) with decked terrace. The ski bus stop is very close (about 200m) and it takes about 2 minutes to drive to the Grand Massif Express lift. Bedroom 1 has a king size bed with en-suite shower room. The second bedroom, also with en-suite, has two single beds with a pull-out bed under. The lounge/diner/kitchen is open plan and has a good quality sofa bed that can accommodate a further 2 people. There is dining space for up to 7 people. The apartment benefits from private parking and there is a ski locker near the entrance. Cot (with linen) and high chair available. The apartment is located in a very pretty area about 500 metres walk from the village centre. A fairly large Carrefour supermarket is very close - less than 1 minute to drive. Samoens is a charming, traditional village linked to the Grand Massif ski area with 265km of slopes and varied ski-ing, ranked by many as excellent for beginners and Intermediates. It is an ideal base for both ski-ing and summer activities including ice skating, walking/hiking, cycling, rafting, parapenting, horse riding, swimming, tennis and more. Within 500m of the apartment there is a park with an outdoor swimming complex including various pools, slides, football area and tennis courts, and a new bowling alley with bar and restaurant has recently been opened next to Carrefour. There are good cycling tracks nearby. The fantastic new ice rink in town hosts ice hockey matches in winter. Look for the Daily Telegraph article where the journalist suggested Samoens was the best ski resort in France.

Comfortable and convenient apartment

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable and well furnished apartment with everything that you would need. The pretty village of Samoens is a short 5 min walk and the ski bus is conveniently situated very close by. Easy to leave skis and boots at the ski shop by the ski lift.

Overall a very enjoyable stay and we would not hesitate to recommend the apartment.

Excellent find

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed with the apartment, easy to find. The apartment was spotless and just as the pictures show. Thank you for this lovely apartment. Wonderful just to be sat outside on the terrace in the summer. We stayed with two 16 year olds and had plenty of room and we only a 5 to 10 minute walk into the centre. The swimming pool is around the same. Definitely recommend to friends and family.

Perfect Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We made a late booking chasing the good snow and found this gem of an apartment just at the edge of Samoens. We organised transfer from Geneva airport to avoid the hassle of a car and found the position of the apartment really good with an easy, flat, walk into the village which was max 10 minutes away.

For skiing we got the shuttle bus to the Grand Massive lift (the bus stop really is only 3 mins away) where we hired skis and therefore were able to leave skis and boots overnight for convenience and avoiding carrying. There is a bit of a queue at the base lift first thing in the morning but that doesn't take long to work through.

The apartment itself was modern, light, warm, very well kitted out and perfect for 2 couples or a family. Access was easy, security good and really had absolutely everything - the 2 bathrooms a great bonus. We used the pre cooked meal delivery service one night (just heat up) which which was good value and quality. Nearby range of restaurants were good and really enough for anyone's taste. The owner provided comprehensive information about the apartment, the village and skiing.

We would certainly visit again.

Great base for a skiing holiday

  • 5 of 5

A really comfortable and practical apartment in a quiet corner of Samoens. It is in a modern chalet and well equipped with everything we needed. Being used to the cramped apartments you get in the purpose built French ski resorts, it was a real pleasure to stay somewhere with some space and the ability to sit out on the terrace on sunny afternoons. And, not a sound from the neighbouring apartments.

Samoens is a lovely town with lots to offer in terms of shops, bars and restaurants and is an easy 6-7 minute walk from the apartment. The ski lift to access the slopes is a little further and we left our skis/boots in the ski hire shop next to the lift which made for an easy life.

If you ski back to Vercland there is a great bar opposite the ski lift and a five minute ride back to Samoens on the ski bus.

The property was very clean and exactly as described, no complaints. Although there were only four of us it would easily sleep six.

Well equipped very comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautifully furnished, the beds are very comfortable and the kitchen well equipped.

The pretty village is only a short walk away where you will find lots of restaurants and bars.

We booked space at the hire shop to leave our skis and boots after skiing each day, which made travelling to and from the gondola easier. It was very pleasant to put on warm dry ski boots in the morning, the hire shop staff couldn't be more helpful.

"two critical pensioners" from Newcastle upon Tyne

  • 5 of 5

We hired a car at Geneva Airport and drove to Samoens.The directions to the apartment were very good and easy to follow. The instructions for access were very clear.To say the apartment was excellent is an understatement,the quality of everything is superb.

There is about a 10minswalk to the village centre but it is a very pleasant flat

walk.There are plenty of good restaurants and cafes etc.Samoens is fantastic in summer,ideal for families.We enjoyed the American Weekend while we were there.We could go on and on and would certainly recommend this apartment.

It is .in an idyllic setting surrounded by trees also has large patio where we enjoyed our daily breakfast and lunch.The temperature was on average 35o hottest we have ever had but it was great to have blue skies every day of our stay.

We would certainly recommend this apartment

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review and we're delighted you enjoyed your stay at our apartment. We think most people find the walk into town to be 5 minutes but we appreciate it might take a little longer with young children or for slower walkers. With our best wishes and do please contact us again next year! Pete & Sarah

Location

From the Owner

We always hoped for a pied-à-terre in France at some stage and having recently got back to ski-ing, now with the children, it all came together and we settled on Samoens. It wasn't a difficult choice. Friends had both skied and Summer holidayed there and told us how charming and family-friendly they found it. Some internet research quickly confirmed this to be the case. Look for the Daily Telegraph article on Samoens in which the reporter suggested it's the best Ski location in France. It's such a good combination of charming, traditional village, excellent ski-ing and a true Summer holiday location - and all within a 1 hour drive of Geneva airport, so week-ends are do'able also.

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

A great location for cycling and walking

Coast/Beach:

Summer swimming in the nearby lake at Morillon (about 4km)

Travel:

Geneva airport is about 1 hour making Samoens a great base for both week and week-end ski trips. Transfer companies can be found on the internet. A TGV train service runs to Cluses (about 20 minutes by car).

Further Details:

There is a good selection of restaurants, bars and shops in Samoens including banks. As well as the Carrefour supermarket close to the Apartment, there is a Lidl in Cluses and a Super-U in Taninges.

Facilities

From the Owner

We would say this, wouldn't we, but we think ours is the best location in Samoens. The apartment is in a pretty hamlet called La Berouze but just 5 minutes walk from the centre of the village. The swimming pools and tennis etc are also just 5 minutes walk and the excellent Carrefour supermarket is very close. It's just 200m to the ski bus-stop (first on here, so always room) and 2 minutes drive to the ski-lift if you prefer to take the car. With ski-ing, walking, cycling, rafting and more all available, what more could you want?!
