super little apartment, ideal for a cosy gettaway

5 of 5
We (2 of us) stayed here for 6 nights, it's a really comfortable little apartment which is very nicely done out and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The sofa bed was really easy to put up and it was great that we didn't have to bring our own bed covers or towels.. (those provided were very nice and comfortable). The owner Mary was very friendly and arranging arrival was very easy and we were met as we arrived in Samoens at the Cinema car park right beside the apartment block. (We managed to park here every night no problem even though this was the main French and UK holiday week). Mary responded to us quickly when we had a query mid week which was swiftly sorted out. There is a great balcony which looks out over the Criou peak which was great to sit out on with a table and chairs for 4 and plenty of candles and lamps to light up the evening. There was plenty of hot water and the bathroom facilities where excellent. We also got good advice from Mary on where to eat etc. The apartment is about 5 minutes walk from the centre of Samoens, also there is a great supermarket 1 minute away with fresh Baguettes and Croissants available from 7.30 Am until 8PM. We also enjoyed Coveys bar round the corner which seemed to have the best selection of craft beer in Samoens including some excellent beer from the local brewery 5 km down the road. We would definitely stay here again summer or winter.

We had a lovely stay in Samoens.. The property was ready when we arrived a bit early. The town is so pretty and the ski area is suitable for all abilities. The ski hire was easy and stress free with Terry in the ski hire shop,being very helpful and friendly. We will certainly come back. The owners provide a very good service.Thank you for letting us stay.
