Chalet Cristal is a lovely place to stay and a good location. It is a short drive to ski lifts in Morillon which has plenty of parking. It is a lovely 45 min walk along the river Giffre to reach the village Somoens (or a 10 min drive) - a town with still an authentic feel to it. The drive from Geneva airport was easy.
We staid with 4 adults and 3 children and the chalet felt spacious with plenty of seating on comfy sofas and large dining table. The 3 bathrooms meant no long queues in the morning. The kitchen was very well-equipped - enough cups and plates to keep us going from breakfast to dinner and night cuppa. The beds were good with nice, cotton sheets. But best of all was the wood stove which each evening warmed the house adding to the cosy atmosphere.
PS Do ask the owners for tips: they helped us with ski hire & recommended local restaurants and some nice walks.
We loved every bit of our stay in a wonderful chalet, which is in a great location for both skiing and walking. The local amenities are brilliant with a great bakery just down the road and all you will need during the stay in Samoën. Throughly recommend getting the local chef in to cater for you if you are a large group for a special night. "Ski Higher" were also brilliant for any ski equipment required as they come to chalet to drop off and pick up your equipment. This is a great traditional place to stay with opportunities to relax or be as active as you like. We felt at home in a well equipped chalet that was well appointed and comfortably accommodated the 9 we had staying there with room to spare.
