Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Samoens - Chalet Apartment Grand Massif

Chalet Apartment Grand Massif is set in one of the best locations in Samoens and is a flat 5 minute walk to the village centre. Set within a stand alone chalet our spacious 80 m2 duplex apartment is flooded with sunlight all day.

Downstairs there is an entrance hall with cupbard and plenty of space to hang coats leading to a double bedroom with a super king size bed, large wardrobe and internet radio; views of the mountains are superb. There is a separate WC and bathroom with full bath, shower, hairdryer, iron and washing machine.

Walking through to the kitchen area there is a large extendable table and a good range of high quality items including a full oven, large fridge/freezer and dishwasher in addition to wedgwood crockery, a slow cooker, a pressure cooker, a fondue set and two raclette machines.

The living area benefits from its full width double height window with great views of the Nant D'ant waterfall and mountains. You can also enjoy the free Wi-Fi,a flat screen television and added luxuries such as a Bose ipod docking system. There are plenty of local books, maps, guide books and recipe books for your perusal.

Sliding glass doors open onto a n L-shaped east and south facing balcony overlooking the communal garden. Here you will find a BBQ and outside furniture ideal for dining and relaxing in the sun from morning coffee until it sets.

Upstairs there is a private mezzanine which can be used for a sleeping area for two or additional living space with a second flat screen TV, play station, DVDs and board games. A second double bedroom with a large wardrobe and a balcony looking out towards the Mont Criou. A smaller twin bedded room plus a second bathroom with bath, shower, WC and hairdryer.

Outside there is a communal garden and parking. A private garage with an electric door, a bench and plenty of space for changing into ski kit. A heated locker dries and warms boots and helmets.There are racks to store skis and a secure locking point for bikes etc. A bike is available to use.

In winter the Grand Massif Ski Area is accessed by the GME lift 5 minutes away by ski bus which stops directly in front of the chalet and runs every 15 minutes at peak times, alternatively its a level 10-12 minute walk. Ski de Fond follows the valley floor and river in front of the property.

A car is a nice added luxury but not essential.

In summer there is partial opening of the lift system. The mountains offer an enormous range of activities including walking, climbing, paragliding, white water rafting, canyon jumping, horse riding, via ferrata, golf, mountain and road biking. There is a swimming pool, lake and tennis courts and other activities at the Lac aux Dames. The Lac blue in Morillon has a life guard.

We have been renting Chalet Apartment Grandmassif though an agency for 5 years but feel it is now appropriate to manage the holiday rentals ourselves.

This will hopefully allow more flexibility for both guests and family with the added benefit of a more personable interaction. We have in resort contacts for help if required during your stay.

Hilary purchased this apartment in 2007

For us Samoens seemed to offer so much more than other mountain villages and really does match up to those fantastic honest reviews.

We ideally wanted to holiday in a picturesque setting both summer and winter with facilities for all age groups from grandchildren to grandparents. We do like having the availability of many kilometres of skiing across an extended area and to visit other resorts. The Giffre valley offers this with the Grand Massif ski area accessed by the village cable car and the ski areas of the Porte du Soleil, Chamonix or through the Mont Blanc tunnel in Italy are easily reached for a days skiing.

Chalet Apartment Grand Massif is in an extremely enviable location within Samoens next to a reliable and frequent ski bus stop. The apartment was built in 2003 and still looks new, external and internal finishes are maintained to a high standard. It is very well equipped and has all the conveniences and comforts of home. The larger of seven apartments, within two similarly sized stand alone attractive chalets, it has its own external stairs and entrance. A private garage with a heated boot cupboard and storage for sports equipment. There is also a communal garden and parking.

The 80 m2 duplex design is very desirable and feels extremely spacious. A south facing double height windows in the living area has spectacular views of the mountains and of the Nant D'Ant waterfall. Sliding patio doors open onto a south east L- shaped balcony over looking the garden area with outside furniture and BBQ. The bedrooms and spacious bathrooms plus separate WC are arranged over the two floors. The mezzanine upstairs is a useful multipurpose space.

Even after 5 years of ownership and visiting many local properties we feel very proud that this is among the best designed, maintained and equipped 3-4 bedroomed apartments in Samoens.

See our website for guest testimonials.

Buying an apartment seems to be a lottery you think you have thought of all the points but then discover that you had missed a major asset.

Luckily we have discovered since buying our apartment additional benefits that we had not expected. We have found that in summer the sun rises and shines into the bedrooms, then the east facing windows catch the rays flooding the living area and kitchen with sunlight before settling on the main balcony where it stays until sunset.

The layout of the apartment is ideal for sharing the bedrooms being split over two floors each with a bathroom. The open plan kitchen- living room providing a both physical and sound barrier.

The second sitting area on the mezzanine has been great for children to play during a dinner party or for drying washing overnight out of direct sight.

Changing into ski kit is no longer a struggle with warm dry boots, helmets and gloves stored in the heated locker and plenty of space to store skis individually. The electric garage door enables a key free ski.

Access to Geneva airport with regular flights throughout the year is great for extended weekend breaks.
