A wonderful holiday in a unique place with fantastic hospitality.
A genuine old farmhouse, beautifully restored and the accomodation is a self contained apartment upstairs with original old beams and a wonderful view over the mountains .
It’s a very comfortable and warm apartment, in a lovely tranquil hamlet just about ten minutes drive from the centre of Samoëns on the sunny south side of the valley.
We really enjoyed the warm welcome and the friendly hospitality of our hosts Veronique and Frédérique who went out of their way to make us feel at home. Our dog was delighted to have a friend to play with too!
We will definitely be back and wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend this unique property.
Dear Ruth and Philippe,

Lovely apartment with great views; amazing hosts
My partner and I wanted an autumn break in the Alps for hiking and this apartment was perfect for our needs. Véronique and Frédéric are very friendly and wonderful hosts and made our stay even more enjoyable. The top floor apartment is in a very old farmhouse in a beautiful valley with amazing views. It's very convenient as a base for hiking or skiing or just if you want to relax in a peaceful setting. Thoroughly recommended!
Dear Lara and James,
Thank you so much for such a kind review. It was a pleasure to have you here and the weather was with us. Hope to see you again!

La Grange de Mathonex - Crocus Vacantie March 2018
The upper floor of this converted barn is a very nice, quiet and cosy place to stay for a weekend or a week. We are a family of four and it comfortably accommodated us during our spring ski vacation at Samoëns. Although it was very cold outside it was always warm and cost inside. The property is light and well equipped.
Thank you very much for your kind review and sorry that we were travelling all week but the most important is that you enjoyed your family holiday!
We had such a lovely time in Mathonex. Veronique and family (and animals) were so welcoming to us, and very helpful towards us, giving us lots of suggestions about how to spend our week. They were very tolerant of our rather naughty dog :)
The property is comprised of the top floor of a large and very old farmhouse. It is comfortable, and nicely appointed. The views are spectacular, and all you can hear is the sound of the mountain stream.
We would love to return.
Thank you so much for such a kind review! Your dog actually was very quiet and patient :-) You are welcome if you want to come back!
All the best to you and family,
We have thoroughly enjoyed this accommodation. If you are looking for peace and quiet with a great nights sleep, look no further. It nestles in the hillside overlooking mountains. The only sounds you will hear will be ......... nature.
The gite is warm, cosy and comfortable. Load of hot water, comfortable beds and quality finish.
The hosts Veronique and Fred are delightful.
We would love to return
Dear Julie and Mick, Thank you very much for your review! We (including Cannelle!) look forward to see you again soon here :-)
