Guestbook comments from the owner
We spent Christmas 2013 in Samoens as an extended family and I booked Buqa for some of my family members. It's located within a development of new chalets and we all stayed next to each other, in and out of all our apartments.
Buqa was clean and comfortable, and just as seen in the photos. It was quite roomy, with enough space for two parents and five grown up teenagers. The kitchen was well equipped, sufficient for all the cooking we had to do for our large extended family over the week. And the living room big enough to accomodate all 20+ of us for our christmas get-together and secret santa gift sharing!
Our teenagers had a great time with all the dvds, games etc and would stay up all night having a good time until reminded they have an early start next day for the ski slopes.
The owner Elan had been very helpful throughout the booking process and sent useful directions to the apartment. Gilles was also on hand to help us whenever needed throughout our stay.
A very enjoyable experience by all the family, even our hard to please teenagers!!
We thought it be nice for you to get a brief idea of who we are.
The Buqa Family...
He is responsible for introducing family and friends to the charms and delights of this all-rounded alpine resort, and opened the rest of us to the extreme world of Snowboarding... (he will also, happily hang out with skiers!) Quoted as saying 'I want my ashes scattered at the foot of Mont Blanc' you begin to get a feel for what makes him buzz! Having spent many seasons in different resorts, Elan has been drawn back to this picturesque, understated charm that is Samoens and surrounding Giffre Valley. As a keen Mountain Biker, he is hoping to improve his fitness level and technique by venturing the single tracks of the Valley each Summer.
Still relatively novice to snowboarding, she fell into the lifestyle after marriage to Elan… and hasn’t looked back since. Armed with one bit of vital snow-knowledge (‘never eat yellow snow’), she has evolved into a fully-fledged snowboarder. Having just given birth to their beautiful children Nia and Yash, Elan and Piral are both very excited about the prospect of multi-lingual toddlers skiing in nappies! Fortunately, Samoens is the perfect place for the little ones to get started on the slopes and to enjoy family friendly fun...they can’t wait!
An uber-cool snowboarder: edge on board, music in ear and the chilled boarder fashion that only chilled boarders get away with, he took to the sport like duck to water. Obviously, all was achieved under the strict guidance on safety and technique from Elan, his big brother (who takes all the credit to this day!)
Who says chicks can’t board? Determined to be as cool as her brothers, Shree took up snowboarding a few years ago and loves the thrill of the sport, as well as enjoying the stunning views that the alps have to offer.
We, at Buqa are strong believers of 'Mi Casa es Tu Casa' and we want you to enjoy your stay at Buqa just as much as we do.

The ground floor entrance leads to an open plan contemporary fully equipped kitchen/dining area, , washer/dryer and iron in utility cupboard, a stylish twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a separate WC. This is well suited for wheelchair access. The first floor is occupied by a spacious living room with a traditional wood-burning fire-place, modern technology, amazing views and a large south-facing balcony to enjoy the warm summer air and the not-so warm winter air too! The master bedroom and a stylish bathroom with Jacuzzi bath also occupy the first floor.
The mezzanine floor with lots of floor space for the little ones is our definition of the ultimate chill zone. Full media system, sofa, bean bags and stunning mountain views, as well as twin beds make this area a great hang out day and night.

'From the electrically heated ski-boot storage to clean white sheets and towels, apartment Buqa offers welcome comfort and luxury after a great day's skiing on the Grand Massif.
We loved: the high tech: from kitchen to entertainment, this apartment lacks nothing - even includes a welcome jacuzzi bath and underfloor heating - not to mention the awesome wood burning fire place! We were impressed by the cleanliness and high level of maintenance.. not to mention the brilliant service and friendliness from both owner and caretaker.
We will be back :-) Karl Kusta | April 2014
'The apartment was spotlessly clean, well equipped and everything worked. The location is convenient for the village but quiet, with no passing traffic.
There is a log fire which is nice to sit round but there is no need to light it for heat as the underfloor heating is very effective.
We were two couples and a toddler and had plenty of room. Only slight critcisms would be storage if more people stayed, and the stairs to the second floor are steep.
We met the owner and the local contact person and both were very friendly and seemed to genuinely care that we had a good holiday'
