About Tom Reynolds
We bought this apartment in 2004 when it was newly finished and have been travelling to the Alps regularly ever since; initially on adventure holidays to bike, walk, climb and ski and - now we have two small girls - to take advantage of the great facilities that Samoens has to offer for all ages. Unfortunately, work gets in the way of us spending as much time as we'd like there, so we rent it out to others, many of whom haven't been to Samoens before. The majority of visitors keep returning because it's in a great central spot and Samoens is a beautiful medieval village that is bustling all year round. We hope you choose to stay here and enjoy it as much as we do! Tom and Luci Reynolds

Perfect place for a family of four, close to the ski lift & centre of the village
Would definitely book again & recommend to friends. Owner was extremely helpful & easy to communicate with, thank you!
This is a very well located and appointed apartment a short stroll or bus to the main Gondola. Two minutes from centre of town and main shops and bars but has the benefit of its own supermarket right downstairs! Would recommend and Tom very easy to deal with. Many thanks.
