My partner and I wanted an autumn break in the Alps for hiking and this apartment was perfect for our needs. Véronique and Frédéric are very friendly and wonderful hosts and made our stay even more enjoyable. The top floor apartment is in a very old farmhouse in a beautiful valley with amazing views. It's very convenient as a base for hiking or skiing or just if you want to relax in a peaceful setting. Thoroughly recommended!
Apartment was as described, just like living in your own home with all the facilities you could wish for, views from the balcony were amazing, especially the thumderstorms! Central location perfect for walking into the village. The lady looking after the apartment was fabulous, she did not speak English (not that she should but our French is not good) but with Google translate it was an entertaining experience. Samoen itself was a great place for walking and actually felt like a village community. The shop and bar staff were really friendly and most spoke good English if your French is not so great. Throughout July and August there is always free entertainment for children and adults in the main square. Whilst we were there we were lucky to see a concert by an English blues artist, Laurence Jones, who was brilliant. The only downside is that the most restaurants and bars serve very similar food. Recommend that you book a table at Le Serac for a special evening meal, we had an excellent meal there one lunchtime but were disappointed that we could not just turn up in the evening and expect to get a table. Overall one of the best places we have stayed in France in the last 10 years, highly recommended.
