Overview

Property

Updated: 03-Dec-2016
Apartment in Samoens, Haute Savoie, Rhone-Alpes, France - A Real Home away from Home,decorated in traditional comfortable Alpine style. Quiet Central location

Our family home has been decorated to give it alpine charm and taste and make it a real 'home away from home'. The Ski Bus stop is only 150m away with free and regular buses that take you to the Grand Massif ski lift in 2 minutes.

We have fitted it out with top of the range Savoyard furnishings and many local touches to give it a homely feel. There is an extensive range of equipment in this MGM mountain style apartment. This warm and well-equipped apartment offers everything for a comfortable stay for 4 people at any time of the year. The apartment is very quiet and situated on the first floor. On entering there is an area for hanging coats and shelf for shoes underneath. The built-in wardrobe further down the hall offers further storage for coats; also a security safe for valuables. The hall opens out onto a delightful open plan living, kitchen and dining area with sliding doors that open onto a large south and south-west facing wrap-around balcony. There are two double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms one off the hallway and one off the living room. Each bathroom has a sample selection of White Company toiletries. There is also a separate toilet off the hall. For your entertainment there is a flat screen TV (French TV), DVD player, CD player, board games, Playstation 3, and iPod connection. There is also free WiFi access throughout. The kitchen offers excellent facilities for home cooking, such as a large fridge with small freezer compartment, ceramic hob, and full size oven. We also have a NESPRESSO coffee machine with a selection of complimentary capsules. For those of you who enjoy cooking and want to turn your hand to some of the traditional Savoyard dishes there is a fondue and raclette set. The wooden dining table seats 4 comfortably and can extend for an extra 2 people. There is also a small table and chairs on the apartment’s south-west facing balcony which means so you can enjoy al fresco dining in the summer months. However, if you feel like going out then within a 2-3 minute walk there are approximately ten restaurants which cover all tastes and budgets. The apartment is furnished with locally made embroidered linens and good quality towels. Both bedrooms have built in wardrobes that offer plenty of space to unpack and relax.

With over 250km of skiing and all accessible from the Grand Massif lift, Samoens caters for all abilities as well as offering some of the best off-piste skiing in Europe. The nursery slopes are ideal for first timers with a good intermediate slope close by to progress onto.

In summer Samoens offers over 600km of Mountain Biking routes (and use of lifts), road biking over the Col Joux Plane (if one feels motivated), 900km of walking trails, white water rafting in the Giffre , paragliding , Kayaking and sailing in the lake. These are just a few of the activities available practically all year round in this special place.

About the Owner

After enjoying several Winter and Summer breaks in Samoens, we finally bought an apartment for our family holidays. We wanted to make it a 'real home from home' and we hope you enjoy your holiday here as much as we do.

Skiing in January

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant time in Samoens skiing but loved the town too. The apartment was ideal with plenty of space for us to relax, eat and sleep. We were met and greeted warmly and shown the ropes. The apartment is in the centre of the village and I sent the children to buy bread every morning which took a couple of minutes. The kitchen was very well equipped and easy to negotiate. The decor is charming and the beds dreamy. Should we get the opportunity to go again we definitely will and can highly recommend Jo and Guy's apartment to anyone wanting a little bit of luxury in a beautiful corner of France.

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This lovely apartment is a couple of minutes walk from the village centre and 6-7 minutes walk from the bus stop (to take you to the Grand Massif Express cable car). The property is very quiet (we didn't see another soul in the apartment building during our week) and is really nicely furnished and well equipped. It has everything you'd need for a self catered holiday and is really close to a good choice of restaurants if you want to eat out. I would definitely recommend it and hope to return myself!

Fabulous and very well located appartment

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this beautiful apartment in Samoens, March last year. You will find everything you could possibly need here as it is so well equipped. The photos are a true reflection of the apartment and it is very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Extremely convenient having the underground parking and ski locker for your use. The main village square is just a short walk, where you will also find the ski hire shop which is all very easy when you have 2 young children. The village is a good base for you to access the mountain region. We were here end of March and there was still plenty of snow and it was not busy which is fantastic with young children. The Grand Massif express which services Samoens takes you to the top in minutes, where you will find an extensive ski area, along with it being great fun family skiing. I would highly recommend this apartment and I look forward to returning for another winter ski and even a summer holiday.
