Why Secret Chalet chose Samoens

Fell in love with the area the first time I visited. It is a beautiful alpine village which just happens to be located on some of Europe's best skiing. I built the chalet in 2012 from the ground up. I could have chosen anywhere within the French Alps and choose this spot after the search for what seemed like decades of research!

What makes this chalet unique

When you are at the Secret Chalet, you are in one of the most magnificent places in the world. You will have some of the most stunning views directly from the front door not to mention the terraces or hot tub.

Guestbook comments from the owner

High Quality

  • 5 out of 5
Secret Chalet is fantastic. It is finished to the highest quality, it is specious, modern and very well equipped. The personal services offered by the chalet are also excellent, such as the chef and ski rental provider, both of whom come to the chalet, offer a 5* service and take the hassle out of both chores meaning you can just relax and enjoy your holiday.

A really impressive place!

  • 5 out of 5
I'd have to say the chalet was beautiful - brand new, very clean, well designed and cool but still homely. The views were amazing and while I had some initial reservations that we were a little 'out of the way', the location worked in our favour as we really relaxed. I was also concerned about having to drive to the ski lifts but again this really wasn't an issue. We will definitely go back as it's the best accommodation we've stayed in for this type of holiday and the skiing was first class.

Secret Chalet is fabulous.

  • 5 out of 5
The fabulous Secret Chalet has large on suit bedrooms rather than most chalets that tend to squeeze in as many bedrooms and beds as possible, the layout is large and open with the advantage of a self contained apartment on the ground level. The balconies have a wonderful vista over the whole valley, the only thing missing was a fireplace or woodburner, but we understand this is due to be installed very soon. The hot tub is cleaned on a regular basis and has great views. We were a little worried about the steep road leading up to the chalet if the snow arrived, but this was no problem as the snowploughs work hard to keep it clear, I would advise snow tyres if you plan to drive down, there is an excellent shuttle bus service if needed ( arranged through Delaterre, see below ). There is a very modern kitchen with all you will need should you chose to do the catering yourself, there is also an excellent snug with games and dvd's etc.

You can park nose in against the chalet so your windscreen is kept free on snow or frost as the chalet is very high.

We used the excellent "Delaterre" cuisine service, Debbie and her staff supplied and excellent and filling breakfast and wonderful evening meals, they are flexible so we chose to dine out for a couple of nights.

Overall a great place to stay.

Owner's Response: As the property is brand new, and has modern under floor heating, it's always toasty, so installing the fireplace would be for ascetics rather than heating.. You've also got the hot tub and sauna so warming up is never an issue! But as you'll have seen I've got the logs stacked up in preparation of the fireplace... most likely this year I'll install it :)

High quality Chalet in an amazing location

  • 5 out of 5
Having skied all over the alps and the USA we were looking forward to Skiing a new area. Chalet often come with good write ups but don't deliver The Secret Chalet delivers on all levels. Ideally you need a car as the chalet is situated high up with stunning views across the valley. The description of the chalet was perfect their were only 6 in our party but the chalet could easily cater for 12 with plenty of room in communal areas often a problem in chalet I have stayed in. The only negative was the sauna was a bit small so we had to go in in shifts..
The drive down the hill to Morillion was easy and a 3min walk from the car park to the bottom of the gondola. We never encounter any queues at the 1st lift or in fact any lift a rarity at european resorts. We found the resort very friendly with a great expanse of skiing for all levels, As most of our party are fairly advanced we never run out of new places to discover with mountain restaurants always providing exceptional food at reasonable (for a ski resort) prices.
We used the company recommended by the chalet to fully cater food at cannot recommend this option enough.
We will definitely be booking the chalet for next season..

Owner's Response: I'll pass on your compliments to the Chef!
Technically the sauna is a 6 man sauna, although i appreciate that with 6 well built gents it might be a squeeze!
Glad you enjoyed the resort as well, I could have built the chalet anywhere in the Alps, and I choose here primarily because it's the best skiing you could ask for. It's got something for everyone.

We'll come back again!!

We'll come back again!!
  • 5 out of 5
We've just had a fantastic holiday staying at the secret chalet. OK, YES
you need a car, and this initially posed an issue for us as there was 10 of
us, and we've only done 'Ski-in / Ski-out' previously. BUT this holiday was
great and changed my mind. It was actually easier because there was no
walking with all the ski's (well technically that's my husband's job!)
because the snow is too thin to actually Ski-in the last few hundred yards!
And as the owner said it's only a short jaunt in car down the mountain from
the chalet and you're at the lift. But that little drive is totally worth it
when get to the chalet! It did only take an hour from Geneva, and we
expected to get lost but didn't! (Although we thought we were then the
chalet appeared!) When we arrived we spent an hour taking it all in, the
views are just fabulous! The chalet is very new, and very well designed.
Spacious rooms, which are all well designed. The area was great to ski too,
the ski school was fab for the youngest, and the boys loved the 'Jam Park'.
Sauna and Hot Tub were always full when we got back too! Debbie who does the
catering was ace, providing us with delicious meals.

All I can say is that it was ideal.

Secret Chalet is only one hour away from Geneva airport which is serviced by numerous airlines (including budget) all year round.

Our stunning property is in a conservation area, and as such it hasn’t been ruined by excess tourism. Furthermore, Samoens has been awarded a ‘Coq d’Or’ for being one of the prettiest villages in France and is the only ski resort classified by the Caisse des Monuments Historiques.

As well being a stones throw away from 2 prominent ski lifts, Morrillion and Samoens on the Grand Massif, Secret Chalet is also only 2 km away from a stunning natural lake with a life-guarded beach, with it's own restaurant and bar. Other activities include volley-ball, tennis, horse riding, river rafting, walks. Go Ape style tree climbing adventure park. Throughout the summer there are countless daily activities provided for everybody to enjoy mostly free of charge. You'll find shows, concerts, cultural events all part of the summer fun.

For those that like the adventure holiday, there's mountain walks and bike trails as well as mountain climbing at Via Ferrata in St Jean D'Aulps, as well as the stunning Cirque du Fer a Cheval, end of the valley.
