It is also a ‘Bourg Historique’ (historic market town) it's very authentic as it stills remains a farming village and dates back to the 13th Century.

A mountain market is held on Wednesday mornings in the medieval square.
MORILLON..home of Olympic gold medal winner: MORILLON is a picturesque village and ski lift station situated alongside the river Giffre. It is a beautiful, truly authentic French alpine village that has maintained its traditional atmosphere while offering a selection of shops, bars and restaurants. Respectful of its traditions, its history is at hand, in its architecture, its chapels.The village comprises of traditional houses teaming with flowers in the summer, renovated church and small chalet style residences. Le Lac Bleu and the river Giffre where the rhythm of life is truly relaxing and worth experiencing. Local farmers, artisans and butchers run the village market on Wednesdays in winter, and in summertime only, an alpine market is held on Friday mornings where you can peruse local produce and crafts - both are well worth a visit.

Susan Shield purchased this chalet in 2005
Why Susan Shield chose Samoens
We just fell in love with the house, the location, and the villages around. We were on a short break during the New Year holidays & Just saw it in the estate agents. We couldn't view it until after the weekend - so we explored the ski area and as that was very impressive, when we viewed the house we in a good frame of mind not to be daunted by the dilapidated condition of the house.
What makes this chalet unique
The location is excellent, on the valley floor so I don't have to worry about narrow mountain roads. 3 min drive & easy free parking, then up on gondola & we're skiing, & we can ski down.
We can walk to our favourite restaurants/bars
The views still take my breath away,I think the pink light on the snow glad mountains will always be the 'highlight'
