Overview

About the property

Beautiful, well equiped 2 bedroom ground floor apartment with large patio and outstanding mountain views and a tranquil location

Beautiful 2 bedroomed ground floor apartment with one double bedroom and one twin with two bunk beds and a third pull out bed stored underneath (see the pictures), each with fitted wardrobes, and a sofa bed suitable for one adult or 2 children in the living area. Fully equipped kitchen with Wi-Fi, TV, blueray player and docking station in the living area. There is a good selection of films, music, books and magazines to suit all ages and tastes as well as a well stocked toy and games box. There is a washing machine in the bathroom which has a full size bath with shower and a separate toilet. Large patio with outside seating and table accessed from the living area with an electric BBQ, table and seating for 6 and a couple of sun loungers. There is outside parking and a secure underground garage with storage for skis and bikes. The town centre with shops,restaurants and bars is 5-10 minutes walk away, with a supermarket 200m from the rear entrance to the apartment block and a take away pizza restaurant 50m away. The first stop on the blue ski bus route is 100m from the property, so there's always space, even at peak times. The Grand Massif express lift is a 500m picturesque walk away along the river bank but this is best accessed via the free ski bus or by driving to the large free car park at the base of the lift. The whole Grand Massif is accessible from this lift with over 250km of skiing to suit all abilities as well as some of the best off piste skiing in Europe. The nursery slopes in Samoens and Morrillon in particular are ideal for first timers with good intermediate skiing close by. Chamonix, Megeve, Les Gets and Morzine are all no more than an hours drive away. Samoens is not a typical ski resort. It is an historic French village with a whole host of outdoor activities as soon as the ski season finishes. Mountain and road biking, canoeing and white water rafting in the Gifre, hiking and paragliding are just a few of the activities available virtually all the year round.

About bridget towns

We live in England with our daughters and have travelled extensively throughout the alps both summer and winter. We enjoy "adventure" type holidays and wanted to have a bolt hole which we could easily access all year round. mainly for skiing in winter and mountain biking and more recently paragliding in the summer.

bridget towns purchased this apartment in 2013

Why bridget towns chose Samoëns

Having decided to buy a property in the alps, we spent several months making weekend trips to Italy, Austria and France. We had decided to buy in Morzine when we drove through Samoens on a misty Sunday morning and what we saw completely changed our minds. Samoens is not a typical ski resort, it is a historic French village with a medieval and alpine atmosphere - no high rise or concrete! It has excellent shops, restaurants and bars and everything is within walking distance from everywhere else.

All outdoor activities are catered for, summer and winter, yet there is never a feeling that it is too busy or crowded, even at peak season. Further afield and within 1 hours drive are most of Frances other well known ski resorts.

What makes this apartment unique

The location is ideal, being only 5 minutes from bars and restaurants, yet is in a quiet, wooded location with fabulous views south over the mountains. There are extensive riverside trails extending from Morillon, through Samoens to Sixt which pass around the apartment making it ideal for walking and mountain biking. The first pick up on the ski bus is at the end of the road, so it's always empty.

All other summer and winter activities are easily accessed on foot and the local supermarket caters for all of our needs and is 200m from the rear entrance to the apartment block. There is a large supermarket on the outskirts of the village with an excellent butcher, several bakeries and a greengrocer in the village

Very comfortable with everything you need for a great week

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a great location with a superb pizza take-away hut right outside the building. Great for when the legs are too tired to walk into town. Bridget has thought of absolutely everything to make your stay as easy and as comfortable as possible. Would definitely book again.

Cosy property in heart of Samoens

  • 5 of 5

Cosy apartment within close distance to all the amenities in Samoens - the ski gondola and town centre. Everything you need for a family trip to a beautiful town in the French Alps. We were a family of 3 adults and 2 young children and the apartment was well equipped and of suitable size for us all. Would stay again!

Short stay in Samoens

  • 5 of 5

This was the 6th visit to Samoens, we've stayed at a private chalet, a hotel and other apartments. This was certainly the best yet. The apartment was easy to find, easy parking, nice quiet location, very clean and comfortable, lots of hot water, everything you would need was in the apartment, TV in the lounge and you could log in to your own Netflix. Nice patio area, shame the weather wasn't nice enough to sit out. Small pizzeria (Le Mazot) 25mtrs in front of the apartment, always useful if you don't want to cook and just want to stay in and chill out, Pizzas aren't bad either. First night we thought it was closed and set off driving into the centre only to notice it was actually open. We had to explain that we don't always drive such a short distance to get a Pizza ;-). I would highly recommend staying here, we had a great time in a lovely apartment.

Perfect location and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week in this apartment and found it to be in the perfect location both for the village and the gondola. Also the wonderful cheese producer is a short walk away! Everything in the apartment is perfect, it is so well equipped with everything and more that you would need, it is warm and cosy and the views are fantastic. It also has a bath which we found very welcome after a day skiing. Bridget was incredibly helpful and answered all questions promptly. I would highly recommend this place and hope to return in the summertime.

A fantastic discovery

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful little apartment. It is beautifully appointed and comes with loads of little extras that make the stay truly memorable. The living space a large and airy and the kitchen has everything you need to prepare wonderful home cooked meals. The bedrooms are comfortable and all the linen and towels provided are of really good quality. We had a great weekend skiing, the lift is a 5-10 min walk, and the ski area accessed from there is immense. We will definitely return.

Lovely stay, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Clean and bright apartment with plenty of space for a short break for a couple or small family. Charming, warm and had everything we needed! Very short walk into town and to the blue line ski bus to the main ski lift. Owner responded very quickly to any problems or messages. Would recommend!

Distances:

Samoens is only an hours drive from Geneva in one direction and the Mont Blanc tunnel in the other giving access to skiing in Courmayeur, La Thuile and Monte Rossa

Further Details:

Samoens has numerous restaurants which are all within easy walking distance and are open all the year round. There are several bars for après ski where the atmosphere is not as hectic as in some larger resorts. It is more family orientated.
