                                    Lovely apartment

                                    5 of 5
                                    This was our third stay in Samoens and we enjoyed another amazing week. The apartment was clean upon arrival and the directions/instructions for accessing the apartment were very clear. The kitchen was well stocked with basics and we just topped up anything that we used like porridge/washing powder/loo roll etc. The ski hire at Xtreme Glisses was just so easy with simple parking at the bottom of the ski lifts (or a 10 minute walk away) and hardly any queuing at all. The village of Samoens is so pretty and, with the apartment being only two minutes walk away from the central square, it meant that early morning trips to the boulangerie were an easy trip.

                                    Fabulous stay

                                    5 of 5
                                    We had a great time with 5 adults and 5 under 11s ( who were all happy with the short, straightforward walk to the ski bus, and into the village centre). Sylvie was very helpful, but not obtrusive. Looking to go back next year!!

                                    Very spacious and comfortable

                                    5 of 5
                                    We had an excellent time staying in the Secret Chalet. It is very spacious and beautifully finished with a lot of really nice additional features. All the bedrooms are large and comfortable. The kids really enjoyed the separate tv room and table football. The dining table is huge so there wasn't the usual cramped eating conditions. The hot tub is on a raised platform, so those going later in the season when the days are longer would have amazing views over the valley from it. The ski area is great for all ability levels and we were glad of the north facing slopes of the Samoens as the snow conditions throughout the alpes were very poor during the week we were there. An all round excellent chalet to which i'm sure we'll be returning.
