Why Sebastian von Holstein chose Samoëns
Chalet Bonnefous has been a cosy family home for the last 25 years. Its fantastic prime location gives you access to both the centre of Samoens village and the ski lifts within minutes. The chalet is in a calm location and has recently been renovated to a high standard, providing both a functional and comfortable house, with a warm and cosy, designed interior.

The chalet was lovely and catered for all our needs, it was clean and tidy and everyone enjoyed it.
There were a couple of things that I think I should mention. As we were not allowed to wear outdoor shoes in the chalet. Two members of our party slipped down the stairs, as they are quite narrow on the turn and slippy in socks, just a few bruises incurred.
The chairs around the kitchen table were very rickety and because that was the only place to watch tv were very uncomfortable to sit in all evening. The upstairs tv only played dvds.
These are only comments and we had a really nice stay at the chalet and would definitely return. Great location.

Great time had by all. Clean, spacious, well kept, easy communication. Good location very easy to walk to town (5 mins) and v near ski bus for lifts.
Coming home in Samoëns
Fantastic house designed and decorated with style, more than well equipped and a great family feel to it. Easy access to the slopes and beautifully situated in the midst of villages that retained their original charm. Professionally serviced by a booking and property management office respectively.
Chalet was great. Better than as described.
We had a very good holiday. Chalet was a pleasure to stay in and snow was good. Chalet decorated to a high and tasteful standard but still comfortable and homely. Kitchen easy to use and full of the right sort of equipment. Samoens is a very pleasant small French town with plenty of activities. Slopes are a bit of a schlepp to get to but if you keep your ski stuff at Samoens 1600 it is easily manageable. So great time had by all - thank you
Fabulous house and location!
Nine of us including two children stayed for one week. The house was excellent...everything was immaculate. We all loved the upstairs living room area but seemed to spend most evenings round the dining table! Great location for Grand Massif lift & ski bus stop so handy, just few mins walk from the house. Would also recommend BonAppetit and KPS for great food. Hope to return next year.
What a fantastic Chalet
This chalet is in a quiet cul-de-sac very close to town - so ideal for us.
The chalet was very comfortable and homely.
We will be coming back and using Mountain People again.
Dear Kevin, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. It was a delight to welcome you and you're always welcome back to one of our chalets. Hope to see you again in future!
Chalet Bonnefous is conveniently located in Samoens village and in close walking distance to the centre and moments away from the ‘Avenue des Loisirs’ ski bus stop to the high speed ‘GME’ lift connecting you to the Grand Massif ski domain, which boasts some of the best skiing in the world. Suitable for all levels, there is over 275km of piste to explore and plenty of off-piste for more advanced skiers. Simply step outside the door and you’ll be on a fantastic snow-shoeing/Nordic skiing route. In the summer, this house is a hub for adventure sports such as hiking, mountain biking, climbing and paragliding
