About Aaran Eade

We live in Devon, UK. As a couple we have loved the mountains, especially skiing and snowboarding and felt that buying in France would give our growing family a chance to learn to ski from a young age.

Aaran Eade purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Aaran Eade chose Samoëns

Can't get any closer to the lift in Samoens! And as a resort Samoens is much less developed than Chamonix and Morzine and offers a much better family atmosphere without compromising on the skiing.

What makes this apartment unique

Bakery for breakfast on the ground floor and pizza for dinner. Ski and snowboard hire in the complex, discounts available to all guests. Can't get more convenient than this. You really can't get any closer to the only lift to the skiing - no buses, no faffing about!

Apartment Samoens - Rhodos 8

  • 5 of 5

Great little apartment in the lovely village of Samoens. Perfect location for the ski lift and close to bakery, pizzeria and ski hire - all the necessities! Apartment itself is ideal for a family or a couple - but any more than four starts to become cosy, but easy enough as there is plenty of storage. Kitchen well equipped. Would thoroughly recommend. Enjoy!

Superb location close to the ski lift on the morning .

  • 4 of 5

It was perfect for accessing the ski lift . With a bakery underneath the apartment breakfast muffins were quick and easy to get! We walked into town for restaurants and the local information guide was helpful.

If I was to say what I didn’t like - hence 4* not 5 - it was the lack of access to WiFi and the tv had no world news or even skiing programmes in French so it was a total waste of time ! Luckily I was with friends so didn’t need to entertain myself but in this day and age WiFi is an expectation on holiday . My friends apartment over the road had it so this could too!

Otherwise it was a great stay, thanks

Owner's Response: Hi Lorna, Thanks for your review. I'm pleased that you enjoyed the location of the apartment. I bet you had great snow, we were there the week after and it was fantastic. We have had the apartment for over 10years and never felt the need for Wi-Fi. I can do all my business work through my phone internet. The French TV is variable - but we have watched the Six Nations Rugby last week. What is it that you want Wi-Fi for? It would be helpful to know what issues it causes.... we'd be happy to put in DVDs etc if that is the issue. We have made a positive decision not to put in Wi-Fi due to the ability to get away from constant technology and enjoy the surroundings. Kind regards, Aaran and Sally

What a location - so convenient for all you need

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully situated apartment in great resort of sameons. We enjoyed an amazing ski break and maximised our time on slopes by being so close to the ski lift, a great bakery below for fresh daily croissants and bread, and accommodated nicely in a smart, comfortable and cosy apartment. With bar, pizzeria and ski hire all below too - what else could you ask for? I am back next year ! Jo

A cosy apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Fully contained apartment that meet all our needs and expectations. Easily accommodated 5 adults, with plenty of room to store all our ski kit. The apartment was very clean, with loads of hot water and the open plan kitchen/diner/lounge area provided a nice area to relax and socialise. Large balcony with fantastic views of the picturesque village of Sameons and surrounding mountains. Lots of facilities in the immediate vecinity include, bakery with bar, ski hire and pizzeria, the only difficult job is deciding who is going to get the croissants in time for breakfast! The biggest bonus of this apartment is that you can walk 50 meters to the main Gondolier, leading up to the Grand Massif Mountain range with over 273km of first class pistes.

I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment for a summer of winter break and we will definitely be returning again next year!

Nice apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is ideally located right next to the ski lift and a short walk into the picturesque village of Samoens. It took under an hour to get from Geneva and has fantastic ski-ing on the doorstep.

The apartment is well looked after and has everything you need - comfortable beds, plenty of hot water, space and storage for at least 4/5 people. We will be back!

Car: not necessary

This apartment is only 50m from the Grand Massif express lift ( it is the nearest accommodation in Samoens to the lift) - In summer the lift opens for mountain biking. Samoens itself has easy access from Geneva (hire car, bus, taxi) and is also only 30mins from Morzine and 40mins from Chamonix if you manage to ski all the Grand Massif, so the ski/snowboarding options are endless. Chamonix is at the foot of Mount Blanc which can be summited in one day and has limitless trails in the summer for mountain biking, walking etc. Morzine keeps its ski lifts open in the summer for more hours of fun walking or biking. For the road cyclists amongst you, the route from Samoens to Morzine is over the infamous Joux Plan if you are feeling energetic! For water sports (sailing, wake boarding, swimming, beach etc), Lake Geneva is 45 min and Lake Annecy is 1 hr by car. Both locations are recommended for a day out.

Other Activities: alpine walking, open-air swimming pool & aerial/adventure play park in the village.
