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

Lovely property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable and well-equipped property with ample parking. Good sized balcony with excellent views up the valley and early sun up to lunch time. Having 2 showers was a bonus. The kitchen is well equipped. Great to have use of an on-site shared indoor pool. Excellently located for walking into Samoen centre, only 5 minute walk, where there are several gift shops, restaurants and bars etc. Excellent base for exploring more widely, with Chamonix, Annecy and Geneva all only an hour away. Highly recommended!

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in this comfortable and clean apartment. It is tastefully decorated and the appliances were modern and of a high standard. The spacious balcony has nice views and good quality furniture. We loved having the BBQ as the weather was very hot! The communal indoor pool and sun terrace was a real hit (especially with our children!) and was very clean. The apartment is within easy walking distance of the centre of Samoens and the leisure centre with its outdoor pool. Samoens is a pretty and traditional town and we did loads of outdoor activities including hiking, biking, tennis, white water rafting and paragliding. Thank you for a fantastic stay.

Le coeur tartan

Fantastic base for a holiday in the mountains. Apartment was really well situated in Samoens. It was clean, comfy and had wonderful views to the valley. The week was spent mountain biking, hiking and using the cable cars to enjoy the views. Wednesday food market in Samoens also great.

Would definitely recommend!

Home from Home in Samoens

The descriptions of layout, facilities (internal and external) were accurate but as the complex has no visible Identification it can be missed by car drivers. It was very well maintained and clean, a pleasure to move into. The owners provided a satisfactory information service but we only spoke to the manager once by 'phone when he gave us instructins about the access codes. The location is wonderfully quiet and picturesque, especially from the balcony. The village is attractive, an easy walk and has all the shops and restaurants you will need. Make sure you talk a walk to and around the Park and check whats on in the theatre/leisure center. We are recommending it to friends and family.

Good apartment

  • 4 of 5

We have been to Samoens many times in the winter and found this apartment to be one of the better ones we have stayed in.

It is very pleasant, situated a short level walk from the village centre. The balcony has views across to the valley, with good quality outdoor furniture. Spacious bathroom.

Added bonus was the wifi which had an excellent signal. The heating was efficient, and controllable. There was also a constant supply of hot water.

The free ski bus stopped very close, a 3 minute walk away, and went every 15 mins at peak times

Samoens is a lovely traditional village with excellent skiing, and is never crowded. Only had to queue first thing in the morning for the Grand Massif Express, but once up at 1600, the people dispersed and queues were minimal.

The skiers took their own boots and helmets, but chose to hire skis up at 1600 from skiloc who provide free heated lockers in the basement room, where skis, helmets and boots were left secure overnight. - saved a lot of hassle.

Plenty for the non-skier, lovely walks along the river, be sure not to miss the gardens they are beautiful in spring.
