About Kate Norris
We are a family of 3 and purchased this apartment "to guarantee our fun for the next 10 years!". Brits based in Edinburgh, Andrew is a tree surgeon, Kate organises a big charity cycle challenge and Henry wants to be an engineer who designs soft play games when he grows up! When we're not in Samoens, we're busy enjoying the glorious wilderness of Scotland as well as the fabulous benefits of living in a beautiful small city (it's a tough call - Edinburgh festival in August, or Samoens?).
Kate Norris purchased this Apartment in 2016
Why Kate Norris chose Samoens
We fell in love with Samoens - an absolute gem of a friendly town in an incredibly beautiful valley - it has everything we need, with bags of charm without ever getting too busy. As year-round mountain lovers, the skiing in the winter, combined with the amazing walking, biking (both mountain and road), paragliding (Andrew only!) made it an obvious choice. Combine this with Geneva being only about an hour away and we think we've found the perfect home-from-home. The apartment is so central that we don't need to jump into our car all the time. In the winter we can just wander to the bus stop (easy even with a 6 year old in ski boots!) or stroll into town for an apres-ski hot chocolate. In the summer, the buzz of the gorgeous central square is only a minute or 2 walk away, but far enough for any noise not to reach us.
What makes this Apartment unique
Being so central, we just love the location of our property. The west-facing views give us lovely sundowners on the balcony and the open-plan living make it a practical and sociable apartment. The endless hot water gives us the luxury we need at the end of active days. Samoens itself is a real find - a friendly, pretty little town steeped in history - gently buzzing in peak season without every getting over-crowded. For the adrenalin junkies there is plenty to keep them busy (rafting, canyoning, mountain biking, via ferrata, skiing, paragliding) while the beautiful walks in summer or snowshoeing and cross country skiing in winter are there for those looking for something more relaxing. The Lacs aux Dames recreation area is perfect in the summer with parcours (tree top assault course), tennis, pony trekking, fishing, boules, beach volleyball, a lovely swimming lake in nearby Morillon, open air swimming pool and loads more, while the ice rink provides plenty more fun in the winter.
