Stunning apartment very well equipped

5 of 5
We had a fantastic holiday in this great apartment, perfect for a family of 4. The apartment has everything you could need and more including lots of nice features - dishwasher, UK sockets, coffee machines, toaster, hairdryer even DVDs and board games. There is lots of storage space too and the apartment was very clean, linen was changed in the middle of our stay. The kitchen is superb, very clean and modern. The beds are very comfortable and a bonus was the large lower bunk bed which was perfect for a growing 15 year old!. Nice touches include lights and shelves around the beds and lots of sockets for chargers etc There is a lovely decking area outside which has plenty of chairs, tables even a comfy sofa. The complex is very nice too and the 2 swimming pools were great, you can even order bread and croissants from reception. A perfect holiday apartment in a great location, samoens is a very pretty village and has everything you need. There is a small shop (Sherpa) about 10 mins walk from the apartment. Owners were a pleasure to deal with and very helpful. We will definitely be returning!

Lovely apartment above Samoens, with beautiful views over the valley.

5 of 5
Firstly, dealing with Christine was very easy and she was very helpful. Both she and her son checked in on us over the week to ensure we had everything and were settled. The apartment was very well equipped, spacious and comfortable with a lovely veranda that had great views. There is also access to a shared laundry room in the basement. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the apartment and in Samoens and the surrounding area, as there is so much to do in the Summer. The photographs on HomeAway were generic for all the apartments when we booked, so reading the detailed information will give you a clearer idea of what to expect. We certainly would recommend this apartment and we will definitely go back.
