Apartment In Le Sylvania, Les Beules, Samoens, Haut Savoie, France



Updated: 16-Nov-2016
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 the Owner

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.

Excellent throughout

  • 5 of 5

Location is excellent: short walk to the village, quiet surrounding, lovely view.

The garden was a big plus as we have 2 small children.

Apartment was very well equipped, from toaster to hairdrier, even found hotwater bottles for the winter!

Beds were comfortable and everything was in working order, the children loved the big chest full of indoor/outdoor games.

Owner is so very on the ball and helpful.

Absolute winner all around.

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Geneva at 70 Kilometres


Geneva is the nearest airport approximately 70km away. It takes about an hour with a hire car from the airport. Car hire is not essential due to the location of the apartment and availability of ski bus. Transfer from Geneva via taxi or minibus can be booked online

The drive from the channel tunnel takes 8 to 10 hours depending on traffic and conditions.


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.

During the summer, Samoens is a centre for numerous adventure type activities including road and mountain biking, white water rafting, paragliding and rock climbing. All equipment can be hired locally.

From the Owner

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
