Why Carolynn Robertson chose Samoens
After visiting Samoens ourselves for a summer holiday, we fell in love with the area and decided to purchase a property here. We have now returned to Samoens several times for both winter and summer holidays and thoroughly enjoy staying at Apartment Ecossais. We would like to share our apartment with you so that you too can enjoy all Samoens and the surrounding area has to offer.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in this lovely and comfortable apartment. The description and photos were accurate but the en suite shower area does not have a toilet which was unexpected as we just took it for granted that it would....although this was not at all a problem. Even though the apartment is just a 5 minute walk from the centre of Samoens it is nice and quiet and there is a great south facing balcony with stunning views. Perfect for having breakfast in the morning in the glorious sunshine,,,,yes even in February!! The pool was an added bonus and really nice so we used it most days.
Samoens itself is a delightful and pretty traditional French alpine style village and we were very taken with it. There is a good selection of bars and restaurants and we particularly liked "Aux Becs A Fleu". The Wednesday market was excellent.......we stuffed ourselves with local goodies, especially the cheese!
The main event was the skiing and the Grand Massif certainly didn't disappoint; it was just fabulous! Loads of brilliant runs for all abilities. The food at lunchtime on the mountains was generally good with the exception of "La Combe" up in Morillon which was just awful so steer clear.
We would definitely recommend this property and would have no hesitation in returning ourselves
