About Andrew and Fiona Bradley

We live in Whitley Bay, North Tyneside, with our two teenage children. We are regular visitors to Samoens both to ski and enjoy the summer activities.

Andrew and Fiona Bradley purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Andrew and Fiona Bradley chose Flaine - Grand Massif

Having visited Samoens in summer 2008 we found it to be the perfect alpine location with plenty to offer in both summer and winter. We love the traditional atmosphere and buildings of the village and have found the local people extremely friendly. We were attracted to the property itself by its location near the village centre and larger than average lounge/dining area for a property of this size.

What makes this apartment unique

Although the property is only a few minutes walk from the centre of Samoens it is also in a picturesque and quiet setting making it the perfect location.The iconic le Criou mountain rises behind the property forming a stunning backdrop. The large 22m2 terrace to the front of the property has a lovely view across a field towards the village centre and is ideal for outdoor dining and lounging.

We loved this apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay. The apartment was cosy, comfortable, clean and well-equipped with everything our family needed. Really impressed by how close it is to the centre of Samoens while being really peaceful. We had a mix of weather so it was great to be able to enjoy the sunshine out on the terrace, but also watch a film on the sofa on a rainy day! Perfect location for exploring the Alps - we did some great walks, white water rafting, a high ropes course - and enjoying good food in the local restaurants. Highly recommended. We hope to go back!

lovely apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous trip to samoens - lovely apartment for a family of 4. Fabulous location - we walked into the village every evening and there was always something going on. Also the small supermarket was very handy. The petit train is just 5 mins walk away which takes you to the lift although we did have a car with us. The only thing we didn't get along with was the garage - bit too tight to get into with our car! We used zig zag for ski lessons who we found to be more English speaking than ESF.

Would definitely recommend and very likely to return

Thanks for a great stay

Lovely apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very comfortable and had all the facilities we needed for our stay. There were 4 of us (2 adults, 2 children) and there was plenty of space for us. Nice to arrive to made-up beds and fresh towels ! We received good directions and lots of useful information from the owners before we arrived. For a ski holiday, the location is excellent; it is a 5 minute walk into the centre of the village and around a 5 minute drive to the large car park at the Gondola. Ski/boot locker in basement was useful. We would recommend this apartment to others and would love to stay there again.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in this lovely apartment, which was clean, secure and exactly as described. The accomodation was well proportioned and the outside patio area was private and perfect to sit and admire the view. The kitchen was fully equipped for the days when we chose to eat in, rather than visiting the many excellent local restaurants. The property location, just a couple of minutes walk away from the town centre, was ideal.

Samoens itself offers opportunities to take part in loads of activities and we tried parapenting, horse riding, high ropes, tennis, white water rafting and hired mountain bikes. We also did several walks taking in the spectacular scenery, and visited Annecy.

Andrew and Fiona were great hosts, always on hand to answer any queries we had.

Our teenage daughter also greatly appreciated the fast and reliable wifi available in the apartment!

Great appartment, fills like home in a beautiful village

  • 5 of 5

This neat apartment was "Home away of Home" for us.

Completely equipped, clean, comfortable and great location: couple minutes from village shops.

We especial enjoyed the outdoor porch with lovely view of the field and mountains.

We faced problems paying by check (the Banks "eat" unreasonable commission), which was resolved fairly with the owners. {and we recommend NOT paying by checks].

Luxury apartment in Samoens

  • 5 of 5

This is a well appointed,comfortable apartment with stunning views and only a short walk from the centre of Samoens. For our stay in the summer there was a lovely terrace to sit on, overlooking a field of wild flowers. The apartement was clean and well maintained and the customer service from Andy and Fiona was excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to a friend or relative.
