Overview

Photos and Description of this 9 bedroom holiday chalet in Samoens - Chalet Brio & La Terrasse

5 en suite bedrooms sleeping 10-16, separate or combined 3 bed apt. extra 6-8 px

Location: Chalet Brio is on the edge of a small hamlet called l’Etelley, just across the river from Samoens, in a great location for both summer and winter holidays in the mountains and close to the main ski lifts up from Samoens, Morillon and Vercland. Recently built, Chalet Brio has been designed and built with lots of light, space and comfort in mind, filled with favourite old pieces and paintings mixed with contemporary furnishings, so that it feels both lived in and comfortable.

The accommodation is very flexible, most bedrooms offer the option of two singles or a large double, some have extra bunk beds. In summer it is ideal for large groups of families and friends who want to self cater, with extensive gardens, a large outdoor heated swimming pool and plenty of parking space. In winter the chalet is catered and offers flexible dates and weekly or short breaks for large or small bookings. An outdoor hot tub is available for winter guests.

Within the chalet is a further 3 bedroom apartment La Terrasse, that can be booked separately or combined with Chalet Brio to offer 7 en suite bedrooms, two smaller rooms with bunk beds, two kitchens and two living spaces.

About Robert & Caroline Thompson

We discovered Samoëns when we were skiing in nearby Flaine and loved its authentic, historic character. Returning to Samoëns in 2005 on impulse we bought a plot of land and hatched a plan to build and run our own ski chalet. With two children away at university and travelling, the time was right for a career change for Robert, who worked in the plastics industry, so we put our house on the market and moved to France, where we appointed a local architect, Olivier Morin, to oversee the building work. We love the mountains, summer and winter, we ski and walk as much as we can and after several years still enjoy every minute of our work and lives here.

Robert & Caroline Thompson purchased this chalet in 2008

What makes this chalet unique

We spent a lot of time laying out the design of Chalet Brio. We wanted it to work very well for both us as our home and for every one staying here. It's light and spacious and open plan, with a log fire in the sitting area and wonderful views of Mt Criou and Mt Buet. It feels cosy and comfortable whether there are just the two of us or a chalet full.

The heating and hot water come from our underground geothermal system, which cuts our energy bills a great deal. The large outdoor swimming pool has proved to be very popular in summer and sitting in the hot tub in winter you look out across the meadows, sometimes the deer come down from the forest and pass by. We're surrounded by wild life, fields and trees.
