We were a three generation family of 7 adults and a 1-year old who spent a week’s ski-ing and walking holiday staying in this well equipped chalet, decorated in a traditional style and conveniently close to the attractive town of Samoens.
Comfortable and spacious bedrooms on top two floors but we needed to be organised in the open plan living area with keeping all ski gear stored away in cupboards by front door as we also had a pushchair and highchair taking up extra space (highchair and cot kindly provided). Drying clothes on rack needed a bit of maneuvering but under floor heating seemed to dry everything overnight. There is a coin operated washing machine and dryer available in building opposite.
The patio at the back - and balcony above – was a good place to relax and enjoy the peaceful rural view. Plenty of parking at the front including one allocated roofed space. Bookable sauna in reception area with an indoor swimming pool (also an outdoor pool within the complex). Found paying for family Internet use was the most economical.
Weather was varied during our stay with no snow in valley but some cross-country ski-ing marked routes were good for pushchair walks. However, still plenty of fresh snow in extensive ski areas which all skiers enjoyed. Ski bus stop opposite complex.
We had just one vehicle between us so were able to taxi those (that flew to Geneva) from the airport shuttle bus stop at the southern end of Cluses (just off J19 of A40), as well as explore more of the valley to walk, toboggan and do supermarket shops just outside Samoens (though there is a convenient smaller supermarket we used for daily bread within walking distance of chalet).
Excellent communication throughout with the owner (Lynne) as well as with the property services staff during our stay - Thank you. We had a great week and can see that your lovely chalet is in an ideal location for holidays in the area throughout the year.
We stayed in this apartment (2 adults & 2 teens) for one week at Easter. We found the accommodation to be clean, modern and comfortable with ample space - pretty much perfect actually.
The pretty town of Samoëns is within a 5 -10 minute stroll and the main ski lift a couple of minutes by car (ski bus stops nearby but we didn't use this service).
I have no trouble recommending this property, and the owners made the booking process easy and provided all necessary info on apartment, skiing and village.
A really great week away.
