Excellent summer holiday!

5 of 5
We had an excellent summer holiday in Samoens. Great location with plenty to do - walking, cycling, rafting and more. Chalet Criou had everything we needed - spacious and well equipped. We enjoyed the walking and cycling (had our own bikes) and often had lunch at a restaurant / refuge in the mountains. It was great to be able to return from our 'activity' of the day, relax at the pool for awhile and then BBQ at the Chalet the evening. Chalet great, Owner helpful and responsive.

Lovely, well equipped apartment in a beautiful location.

5 of 5
Everything about our week in Samoens was perfect, starting with the very thorough instructions on how to find the apartment! The apartment is located within easy reach of the village shops, we walked to the bakery most mornings for fresh croissants. The apartment itself is really well provisioned- the kitchen has all cooking equipment you could ever need which is often not the case in holiday rentals! The children were very pleased with the mezzanine level and the toys and games. The village itself makes a holiday easy, swimming, walking and rafting. We particularly enjoyed Lac Bleu. Communication with Delyth were great- very prompt and helpful in all respects. Thank you for a great week- we hope to return!
