The furniture and décor are nice throughout and the beds are really comfortable for a good night’s sleep. There is a decking terrace along two sides of the apartment which was great for sitting outside for meals or drinks. There are fantastic views to either side of the valley from the terrace which was a great backdrop to the meals we had at the apartment. Samoens is a great place. There is a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants but it still has a small town feel to it with a lovely market square, church and botanical gardens. There was plenty to do in terms of walking both around Samoens and up in the mountains. A really great place to stay and we both had a really enjoyable week.

Allocated parking at the door. Fantastic views over Morzine. Catches late afternoon/evening sun providing perfect place for a vino or barbecue. Walking distance to town if your ok with a bit of a climb. Owner and onsite manager worked well together to deal with any queries. Would totally recommend this place, you can even enjoy the mountains from the comfort of your arm chair!!
