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


if you would rather an airport transfer we would recommend

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.

lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

our family of four had a wonderful time in this fully equipped, comfortable and warm apartment, fantastic views to the mountains, quiet area very close to the town centre, local ski mini train takes you straight to the 1600 gondola every half hour stops outside apartments , Samoens is a super, traditional French town, very friendly, would highly recommend.

Ideal location,perfect family accomadation.

  • 5 of 5

Arrived for a weeks skiing with 3 teenage boys. Apartment is set in the very picturesque village of Samoen. Access to ski gondola was easy as the 'Petit Train' stops outside the apartment , so no long walks in ski boots ! The accomadation was equipped with everything you could wish for and more ! nice not to have to immediately go shopping to get toilet rolls or washing up liquid. Well appointed kitchen that we prepared all our meals in (to save money as dining out with 3 teenagers can be an expensive affair !) We enjoyed watching a selection of DVD's in the evenings, and I managed to read three novels from a well stocked bookcase. Good chunky hooks in the hallway meant our ski gear could be hung up to dry near a heater overnight. All in all, would highly recommend !

a wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

the property is beautifully maintained and feels loved. Everything you need is there as well as lots of little extras, board games, information about the area, walking guides, etc. The location is perfect for a family with an eating area with beautiful views from the balcony, bars and restaurants a stone's throw away, but still very quiet. Samoens is a wonderful place with loads to do and beautiful scenery. We recommend the adventure park and swimming lake at verchaix, the walks in the little green book in the coffee table, rafting down the giffre with nunayak, and the circque du fer a cheval for scenery. Joanna, the owner, was really helpful prior to the trip with regular correspondence and helpful information provided. We will definitely go back, in fact we're struggling to work out why we came home at all.

A lovely apartment in a great mountain village

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in Samoens during the ski season and this was by far the nicest accommodation we stayed in so far. The apartment is comfortable, attractive and spacious and has everything you need. It is in close proximity to the village and the little train that takes you to the Grand Massif Express ski lift stops just outside the residence. There is also a fabulous ice rink which my children enjoyed in the afternoons following their morning ski lessons. Also, as the apartment is on the top floor without neighbours, you can really enjoy the peace and quiet. A sofa bed in the living room could make the apartment even more appealing for slightly larger groups.

Superb apartment in a great position.

  • 5 of 5

5 day skiing trip in this delightful, extremely well furnished apartment. Everything we could need was provided and the apartment was spotlessly clean and well furnished. Amazing position within a few minutes walk of a good variety of restaurants. Pretty town with lots of character. Close to the ski lift to take you up to the slopes where there is a wide variety of runs for all abilities. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return again in the near future.
