Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Flaine - Grand Massif - Les Grandes Alpes

2 bedroom apartment in the centre of Samoens village.

This family owned apartment is located 2-3 minutes walk from the village centre and situated on the top floor of a chalet type residence block which can be accessed by stair and lift. The layout comprises an entrance hall leading to a very spacious lounge and dining room with doors leading outside to a large west facing balcony which enjoys fabulous uninterrupted views across the valley and to the mountains. The hall also leads to both double bedrooms one with a double bed and one with twin beds and a spare third bed.. The bathroom has a full size bath with shower over and there is a separate toilet. The apartment has both underfloor heating and electric convector heaters,it is extremely well furnished.

There is a secure underground garage with additional outside parking for residents as well as a secure ski locker.

The ski bus to the Grand Massif express lift is only 50m away and takes less than 5 minutes by bus or car. Shops bars and restaurants all within 3 minutes walk.

Getting to Samoens: Should you wish to hire a car from Geneva Airport we would recommend hiring from the Swiss side

or,

if you would rather an airport transfer we would recommend Gomassif.com

The Apartment: Although the property is situated only 2-3 minutes walk from the centre of the village it is surprisingly quiet and peaceful. The views from the west facing balcony look over the village and down the Samoens valley and are spectacular throughout the year.

The apartment is excellently equipped for home cooking, however, within a 2-3 minute walk there are approximately ten restaurants which cover all tastes and budgets.

Summer and Winter:

The apartment is ideal for both summer and winter holidays.

Samoens offers great skiing and snow boarding in winter whilst in summer there are numerous opportunities for outdoor activities including mountain walking, paragliding, white water rafting, via ferrata, fun parks, outdoor swimming pool, tennis, golf driving range and many more.

Alternatively, you may just wish to relax on a sun lounger on the large balcony and enjoy the sunshine........ and sample the local wine!

Gorgeous apartment, fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a beautifully furnished, spacious chalet style property, finished to an excellent standard. Everything we needed was either provided in the apartment, or was available in the local shops in the picturesque Samoens village. Situated within such close proximity to the Grand Massif resort, it was an ideal stay for a weekend of skiing. Excellent variety of pistes and great places for lunch. Owners are lovely and very willing to offer any help or assistance. Thanks for a fantastic holiday!!

Fantastic apartment in the centre of Samoens!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED out stay in this well equipped and brilliantly located apartment. We couldn't have had a happier family holiday with our children aged 8. 6 and 4. It was clean, tidy and has lovely views down the valley. The Owners provided great customer service and we would definitely recommend a stay in this property. We loved Samoens too!

Charming well eqiped apartment in a fab location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is very centrally located in Samoens so it is only a minutes walk to shops, bars and restaurants. The town itself is lovely, typically French and very charming. The apartment is tastefully decorated in Savoir style. It is spacious, very clean and very well equiped. It even has a massive slow cooker and a fondu set. We stayed in most evenings and it was home from home.

We thought that it was great value for money too due to the high quality of the apartment.

We really enjoyed staying here and would recommend it strongly - Lovely apartment in a lovely town.

(It is worth stating that we found this apartment on Home and Away and booked via that site - we do not know the owners at all and therefore this is a genuine and independant review which I hope others will find useful)

Summer holiday in the Alps

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful summer holiday in Samoens; the apartment was inviting and comfortable, had everything we could possibly need and more! We spent many an afternoon sunbathing by the lakes in Samoens and Morillon, walked around Cirque du fer a Cheval, walked up to Lac D'Anterne and visited Annecy on market day. Samoens market is a must see; the cheeses are heavenly and the cured meats and honeys are exceptional. If only we could've filled our suitcases with them! We visited to Jardin Botanique, walked to the parks and drive up to Samoens 1600, which looks a lot less daunting without the snow and skiis on my feet. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thank goodness we will be back out in April and again in the summer. Thank you so much for introducing us to this beautiful village and sharing your home with us.

Great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable and charming apartment well situated in the village close to the little train that takes you to the main lift in 10 mins or so and close to village amenities. Fab views across the valley from the lounge/diner from this top floor 'penthouse'. We had a great stay and the owners were very helpful. Has a separate loo and bathroom which is handy. The descriptions and other reviews are all accurate and the property was clean and well maintained. I would recommend to friends.
