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.

Charming, spotless, well located chalet - perfect base to explore The Grand Massif ski area.

5 of 5
Nelly and Alain offer a warm welcome. The chalet is located just outside the village but don't let this put you off. Literally 100 metre from the ski bus stop that takes you to Morillon village, Samoens and Vercland lift (all within 5 minutes on bus). You will need a car and if you prefer you can drive to any of the resorts which all have large car parks. The apartments are much larger than normal chalet apartments. We had apartment 5 and we were a family of 4 - so 2 bedrooms, good size kitchen diner, sitting room with a comfy sofa, bathroom and separate WC. All brand new. Nelly doesn't speak much English but google translate worked a treat and she is incredibly accommodating. We will definitely go back.

Great location, warm and cozy, handy for the main lift to the slopes.

5 of 5
Mary was there to meet us and extremely helpful . We had a great stay and Samoens is a lovely place and very convenient for accessing the slopes. Apartment has everything you need, washing machine, wifi, hob and microwave oven, hot shower etc. There were two of us and it would be very tight for 4 adults. Probably OK for 2 adults and 2 small kids. Would definitely recommend.
