SAMOENS......a well kept secret : Not yet discovered and developed by the big ski companies, SAMOENS and MORILLON are established French ski resorts in mountain farming communities.

SAMOENS is unique in being the only resort classified by the ‘Caisse des Monuments’ famous for it’s stone maisons.There are plenty of Restaurants and Bars, and award winning patisserie /cafe. Lovely quaint shops and activities , are held throughout the year such as festivals, open-air concerts and craft fairs. 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. On some days, the streets can become very crowded - with passing cows! Samoëns has been awarded the ‘Coq D' Or’ (golden cockerel) for being one of the prettiest villages in France. . 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.

About Susan Shield

Kevin & Susan left their Kent Cottage & the busy life of commuting

to life their dream - renovating a charming Alpine Farmhouse & then indulging their passions for entertaining , cooking, home-making and of course skiing.

Susan was a manager for John Lewis in Oxford Street and Kevin

was in the plumbing business in Tunbridge Wells .

We enjoy our life here, love the skiing and the tennis

in the summer.

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'
