Access to the centre is very easy. The Chalet is perfect for 2 couples, lots of (clean) space and well equipped. Descriptions accurate.

Ash and Mike gave us the initial tour of the property on our arrival and they kept in touch over our holiday to make sure we had everything we needed - We could not fault the service provided. We have stayed in many Chalets over the last few years but never received this level of service before. The chalet is in an excellent location with extensive views of the snow capped mountains from the balcony or the hot tub. It provided an excellent hub for our sons downhill mountain biking and our visits to the local towns and even further afield to Annecy and Chamonix. We hope to return one day.

It was wonderful to arrive after a long journey to find a decent bottle of red ready to be quaffed on the sunny balcony. The property is comfortable & cosy and perfectly positioned for wandering into Samoens for an evening meal or drink. The ski bus stops just outside the apartment but we found it easier just to throw the skis in the roof-box and drive to the GME. Parking was never an issue at either the apartment or the GME, despite some very "civilised" start times and the owner couldn't have been more helpful, both when planning our holiday and while we were there. Many thanks - we would very happily return.
