About Carolynn Robertson

We are the Robertson family and live in Scotland. We are a family of 5 with two teenage boys and a younger girl.

Carolynn Robertson purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Carolynn Robertson chose Flaine - Grand Massif

After visiting Samoens ourselves for a summer holiday, we fell in love with the area and decided to purchase a property here. We have now returned to Samoens several times for both winter and summer holidays and thoroughly enjoy staying at Apartment Ecossais. We would like to share our apartment with you so that you too can enjoy all Samoens and the surrounding area has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in this lovely and comfortable apartment. The description and photos were accurate but the en suite shower area does not have a toilet which was unexpected as we just took it for granted that it would....although this was not at all a problem. Even though the apartment is just a 5 minute walk from the centre of Samoens it is nice and quiet and there is a great south facing balcony with stunning views. Perfect for having breakfast in the morning in the glorious sunshine,,,,yes even in February!! The pool was an added bonus and really nice so we used it most days.

Samoens itself is a delightful and pretty traditional French alpine style village and we were very taken with it. There is a good selection of bars and restaurants and we particularly liked "Aux Becs A Fleu". The Wednesday market was excellent.......we stuffed ourselves with local goodies, especially the cheese!

The main event was the skiing and the Grand Massif certainly didn't disappoint; it was just fabulous! Loads of brilliant runs for all abilities. The food at lunchtime on the mountains was generally good with the exception of "La Combe" up in Morillon which was just awful so steer clear.

We would definitely recommend this property and would have no hesitation in returning ourselves

A perfect find

  • 5 of 5

I really didn't want to write this as this place is soooo perfect I don't want it getting booked up. The pictures do not do it justice. The quality of the fittings are excellent and property is equipped to a high standard. I did not find anything lacking. The locations is great with a short walk to town and a short drive to chair lifts. The swimming pool was a delight incredibly clean and just a perfect end of the day activity. The whole process by Carolyn has been handled professionally and smoothly. With good information supplied prior to arrival and my deposit being returned in good time. Cant rate this place higher. Without a doubt I will be booking again next year, Thanks for a great holiday.

Fabulous sunny week in beautiful Samoen

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was extremely comfortable and well equipped, for us a family of five with three teenagers. We thoroughly enjoyed the lovely swimming pool and the proximity to the centre of town and ice rink was really handy.

Le Coeur Tartan

  • 5 of 5

We've just come back from a week in Samoens staying in Le Coeur Tartan.

The apartment is spacious (for a ski apartment) but if you have people on the sofa beds it's always going to shrink the living room space with their belongings. The balcony is a good size too and has a large table with space left over and a BBQ.

The kitchen equipment was comprehensive (we cooked every other day) and worked well once you've read the instructions. We really appreciated having a washing machine in the bathroom, so we didn't build up masses of washing to take home and I got to wash my cycling kit properly.

The position of the block between the municipal swimming pools/ lakes/ leisure complex and the center of town is great. 5-10 mins. walk to the outdoor pool and 5 mins. in to town for a meal - perfect.

WiFi in the apartment, not block WiFi, was just like being at home. Pity the IPlayer doesn't work abroad. We used the DVD player but not the computer game (might have been an X-box, but I'm not sure)

The pool in the complex is lovely and just as importantly (for some) the deck outside it gets sun for most of the day to relax in. The balcony loses the sun by about 1.30-2pm, but gets it as soon as it rises over the mountain (about 8ish in mid August)

So, to summaries; it's modern, it's clean, it's spacious, it's well quipped, it's in the right place and........we would most definitely go back!

Lovely well equipped chalet, stunning views, 25m from indoor swimming pool. Walk to lakes, town+ all

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic chalet apartment with stunning mountain views. Access to superb indoor private swimming pool 25m away! Walking distance from beautiful mountain market town with lots of picturesque shops, cafes, and lovely restaurants, aswell as lakes and an array of activities...rafting, mountain biking, fishing, horse riding, water golf, parascending, hiking, tennis, outside pool etc. Information of free activities and events also available at the local tourist office. Loved the rafting. Chamonix an hour's drive where we went up Mount Blanc and into the glacier (le Mer de glacé). Well worth getting up before dawn to get there early to beat queuing for hours to see the amazing landscape. Everything anyone could want in a holiday.
