Havens in the French Alps

Some of the most spectacular scenery in the world is to be found in the Samoens Resort, French Alps. Bordering Switzerland and Italy, this part of France has a flavour all its own while still being undeniably, traditionally French. Here the Giffre Valley cuts between snow-capped mountains and picturesque Alpine towns and villages. The river, penned between solid rock banks, foams and cascades in white water frenzy, spilling from magnificent waterfalls and providing some of the best white water sport in the world. In the northern stretches of the valley lies the small village of Verchaix, nestled on its own plateau at a height of 786 metres above sea level. It boasts a beautiful 18th century church and easy access to some of the best ski areas in France, being part of the Grand Massif circuit centering on Flaine. It might sound remote, but this charming place is only an hour's drive from Geneva Airport. Whether you choose to spend your summer holidays or winter holidays in this area, you can be assured of many exciting things to do from the base of your vacation rentals in Verchaix and Samoens.

Self Catering Holiday Rentals in Verchaix and Samoens

As you might imagine in such a popular resort area, there is a wide selection of self-catering holiday rentals available. Naturally, given the location, chalets predominate, but there are other options, too. You can spend your family holidays in the heart of the towns, or opt for somewhere a little more out of the way, where you can gaze out at the spectacular views of the French Alps, seemingly on your doorstep. Imagine the appeal of a chalet in Verchaix with a wood burning stove to come home to after a day on the piste. You might even decide to opt for a chalet with a hot tub. You could stay in a studio apartment in traditional French Alpine style in the heart of the picturesque town of Samoens. Other options are a renovated farmhouse in a tiny hamlet or converted barn with solid oak flooring.

The Appeal of Samoens

Set amidst lush green mountain forest, the charming town of Samoens is regarded as one of the most beautiful towns in France and has been declared a national heritage site. With its medieval fountains and 17th century chapels it is certainly remarkably attractive. Attractions in the vicinity are dominated by the skiing. There's 265 kilometres of piste; over 130 runs, constituting one of the country's largest skiing areas. There are plenty of other things to do, however, such as white water rafting, paragliding, rock climbing, hiking and mountain biking. There are also caves to explore; one of the world's deepest potholes is in the region.
