Alps Accommodation are pleased to present Chalet Papillon, a luxury 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom chalet, sleeping 9 people in extremely stylish and spacious accommodation. Built in 2005, Chalet Papillon is in an enviable position above the historic village of Samoens in the Grand Massif ski area. It offers the ideal location to get away from it all, yet is conveniently located, with Samoens a 15 minute walk or 2 minute drive away. The ski lift is 2km away. The chalet is available on a self catered basis, although we are able to offer flexible catering at this property. The chalet is truly impressive, with high ceilings, expose beams and quality throughout. The living area is extremely large, with stunning views through the floor to ceiling windows, across much of the living area. The log burning fire, for those cosy nights in, is surrounded by deep and comfy leather sofas. There is a large 42 inch plasma satellite TV with DVD player and stereo, as well as free WiFi access throughout.
Situated off the living room is the spacious dining area, very comfortable for 9 people around the lovely wooden table with leather chairs. There is also reading area with further seating and the open plan kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, full size oven and ceramic hob, dishwasher and ample workspace. A large south facing balcony offers ample space for relaxing and outside dining. On the first floor, there are 4 bedrooms, 2 of which are double en suite bedrooms with large power showers, WC and sinks. Also with sunny balconies off each. There is a triple bedroom with double and single above and the fourth bedroom has 2 single beds. A further family bathroom with full size bath and integrated shower, sink and WC is also on this level, as well as another WC. The ground floor of the chalet has a fantastic games room, offering a pool table, full size table tennis and air hockey.
There is a large hot-tub outside for those bubbly nights in! The chalet benefits from underfloor heating, it's own double garage, ski and boot room and ample storage for equipment and bikes.
All of your linen and towels are provided, with beds made prior to arrival. At the end of your stay, cleaning of the chalet is included in our prices. A complimentary welcome hamper is provided, with items such as wine, juice, butter, cake and crisps, so there's no need to rush to the supermarket on arrival. A selection of Molton Brown toiletries come as standard in all bathrooms. You also benefit from discounted ski hire and private lessons, as well as selected discounts for summer activities and equipment. Based in resort, we are able to assist with all aspects of your holiday.

Guestbook comments from the manager
The best time ever. Thanks for everything you did. The chalet, Samoens and all it's people have made it a memorable holiday. The views are outstanding, plus the snow all week made it a fairytale Christmas. Ali and Tom have been a great support. Love the log fire and jacuzzi."
