The property also has a large drive and a garage for up to four cars.

The Stones family live in the UK when we are not spending time in France. Patrick works in property and Debra is a childminder. William loves skiing, football and computers. Our other children are all grown up and enjoy holidays with their partners at the chalet.
We spent 8 years holidaying in Samoens both summer and winter before taking the plunge and buying our own little piece of heaven. We had fallen in love with the region and all it has to offer for both an active outdoor life and somewhere to relax and re-energise. Great skiing and snowboarding, restaurants, mountain hikes and white water rafting are just some of the activities that we regularly enjoy. Sometimes just sitting with a book and a coffee at a mountain restaurant hits the spot.
The space and layout of the chalet make it a great place to socialise with family and friends. It is easy to chat over a glass of wine whilst making dinner. The fire makes the lounge and dining room warm and cosy or you can relax on the mezzanine whilst listening to some CD's and old LP's. The views from the terrace are amazing whether you are using the hot tub in winter or having a BBQ in the summer. William loves making snowmen or playing board games.
