Fantastic accommodation in beautiful setting.

5 of 5
Lovely, picturesque chalet. Extremely clean - all amenities available. Fantastic weather - sunshine only added to a lovely holiday. We particularly liked the next village up the hill (Chatel) lovely restaurants for an evening meal watching the sun set. We followed the recommendations from the owner regarding the drive to the Chalet - we stocked up at Carrefour which was a good idea. Lovely walk to Abdondance village centre on a sunny day. Would certainly recommend staying here to anyone. Can only think it is even better in the winter months if you are a skier. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

Great apartment in a lovely location

5 of 5
The apartment is lovely. The bathroom and kitchen are modern and stylish with good appliances. 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.
