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.

Unforgettable holiday !

5 of 5
First of all, the manager was very attentive and kind. The house is fabulous, with everything you need to spend an unforgettable stay. The movie theater, super useful to entertain children (and older). The pool, the gym, the great kitchen and the natural setting are wonderful.
