Comfortable and modern in the heart of Samoens

  • 5 out of 5
This is an extremely comfortable, clean and modern apartment dwelling finished to a very high standard and ideally situated in the Place de la Grenette in the heart of Samoens village.

We rented the ski lodge for the whole of the winter season 2012/13 and were very happy living there. The apartment is always warm and cosy (thanks to regulated underfloor heating) with a plentiful supply of hot water throughout the day. The styling of the rooms is simple, clean and uncluttered and the bedrooms have excellent en suite showers. The open plan kitchen and living area make it ideal for eating together as a group and entertaining guests. The apartment also boasts an impressive surround sound TV/HiFi/Home Cinema for those ´white out´ days on the mountain.
The location could not be better - right in the heart of charming Samoens. It is a 5-7 minute walk (in ski boots) to the free navette ski bus (ligne blue from the cinema stop) or even better in peak holiday weeks the free Petit Train picks you up from Place de la Grenette and drops you at the GME main ski gondola - there is no better way to travel! Parking is also not a problem with three free municipal car parks situated within 2-3 mins of the apartment.
The owner of the ski lodge is very friendly and helpful and was on hand to attend to any minor problems or snags we had during our stay.

A suggested improvement would be availability of WiFi in the apartment and storage for skis and boots is limited (though the ski hire shops offer storage on the mountain for a fee)

Overall the apartment is great place to stay for a holiday or longer stay in Samoens. Samoens has a great selection of restaurants, shops and a few bars. There is small Casino mini market in the village and a large Carrefour supermarket just 5 mins drive out of the village. The ski area of Grand Massif is in the premier league of resorts we have skied in throughout Europe and the US - with a choice of slopes and off piste for literally all levels of skier and boarder. It is only and 1 hour 15mins drive door to door from Geneva airport makes it so easy to access (no winding up mountain switchbacks for 3 hours here!)

Its a superb apartment in a great place - we want to go back! :)

Owner's Response: Hi!
It was a pleasure to have you last winter at the Viking Lodge. You are welcome at any time, you should even try it in the summer period as well, so much to do if you like outdoor.. Thanks for taking good care of the place and I look forward to welcome you again.

Fabulous Location

  • 5 out of 5
Warm, clean, comfortable apartment in the centre of Samoens. Would strongly recommend, activities taking place each evening in the square outside which the children greatly enjoyed - not going on past 9pm so not keeping us up! The ski bus stop was not far but we were also lucky that a small tourist train stopped at the door every 15mins to take us to the ski lift - this was free. Would certainly rebook and return to Samoens - it made a change to be in a village with a fantastic butchers and bakers on a ski holiday. The people friendly,skiing fun, mountain restaurants excellent and good value for money although you do need to book in advance at peak times. The children greatly enjoyed the ski school run by ESF and made great progress in their skiing.

Unexpected jem!

  • 5 out of 5
This was is about best ski apartment I have stayed in. It was elegant, spacious, welcoming, well equipped and very, very comfortable. The description didn't do it justice. We (four adults and two children) found it very relaxing and the children thought it was 'really cool'. The only thing it lacked was a view, but the charm of the village compensates for that. I have no hesitation in recommending it, and we are considering a summer visit, it was so good.
Samoens village is very friendly and compact with some decent restaurants, not too ludicrously priced. Nice little shops, a fresh fish stall and market day.
Although a good 15- 20 minute walk from the cable car we all enjoyed this (weather was kind) and as a result did not suffer any aches or pains after some hard days skiing. There is also a ski bus that runs frequently if you don't fancy the walk.
Enjoy!

Nice place!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the Viking lodge January 2008, and have booked again for 2009. The logde is located in the center of town, with easy access to all the shops. The bus to the ski-lift departs at a 5 minute walk.
The lodge is well equiped, and the owner is very friendly.
The only disadvantage is that there is no elevator, and the appartment is on the 2nd floor.

TOP LOCATION : The Viking Lodge is located on the main historical square of Samoëns - village, a very French mountain village and ski resort that is classified as a historical monument. Grand Massif is the 5th largest ski area in France with 260km of slopes. Grand Massif is located in the northern French Alps and due to its location it beats all snowfall records. Samoëns is a perfect spot to enter the Grand Massif ski domain and has numerous charming restaurants and shops. It is not one of these satellite resorts, it has its own authentic soul.

Other Activities: Paragliding, snow scooter safari, sleep in a mountain refuge etc...

Golf: You have 5 Golf courses within one hour of drive. You also have a practice in Samoëns for warming up.

Ski: Samoëns is connected to the huge Grand Massif (Flaine, Morillon, Les Carroz and Sixt) and is the 4th biggest ski area in France. You'll find skiing for all levels and you will find tons of snow. Grand Massif is the ski domain that get the most snow in whole France due to the close Mont Blanc and the Lac Léman (humidity).

It is a fantastic area with lots of off piste, great large slopes in Flaine, easy family slopes in Morillon and nice steep slopes in Samoëns. We can also organise special tours with Heli skiing if needed.
