The furniture and décor are nice throughout and the beds are really comfortable for a good night’s sleep. There is a decking terrace along two sides of the apartment which was great for sitting outside for meals or drinks. There are fantastic views to either side of the valley from the terrace which was a great backdrop to the meals we had at the apartment. Samoens is a great place. There is a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants but it still has a small town feel to it with a lovely market square, church and botanical gardens. There was plenty to do in terms of walking both around Samoens and up in the mountains. A really great place to stay and we both had a really enjoyable week.

Excellent facilities, very well equipped, clean and tidy. Three bedrooms, one double, two single beds (that can be pushed together) and two bunks. Yann is friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Good venue as a base for walking or mountain biking. Would like a little more detail in 'how to find it'. Great holiday had by all.
