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 Samoëns

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

Even better than the photos

  • 5 of 5

A great, comfortable and well equipped apartment. The pool is really good and when we went (1000am and 5pm) it was empty except for us.

Loads of things to do in the local area,the town of Samoens is beautiful and has plenty of bars, restaurants and the like. It wasn't at all noisy and didn't feel busy or overcrowded.

Very happy customers.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the week before Easter 2018, for a family skiing holiday

Accommodation - very peaceful and quiet whilst we where there, the apartment block is well maintained and has use of an excellent swimming pool

Carolynn is very helpful and efficient to deal with

Good sized supermarket 15min walk or 5min in the car out of town towards Morillon, alternatively lots of good shops in town max 10mins walk away

Samoens is down to earth non-pretentious town, surrounded by mountains and great views. Agricultural land all the way into town, one can see that the area is stunning in summer.

Skiing - just 5 min walk to the SkiBus, or walk to the GME in 20min anyway, or drive and free parking at GME

We rented ski kit at Extreme Glisses opposite the GME and that included overnight storage, easy!

This is not the place for skiing to/from the door, but with the GME it takes no time to get up to Samoens 1600 and from there access to 260km of runs

We enjoyed ourselves and would recommend as an alternative to staying at a dedicated ski resort.

Great, modern apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a great location - really easy walk into town. It’s clean, modern and well equipped. Only seemed to be missing a tea towel, so tricky to dry up ! The pool is a great bonus on no-ski days and the ski bus now stops at the end of the road. Owners are lovely - quick response to questions and really helpful.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay at Le Coeur Tartan, despite the challenging weather conditions. Thank you for the review you left, our tea towels have obviously gone walk about in the laundrette! We'd love to welcome you back any time in the future.

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.
