All rooms are spacious with large closets.

The dining room’s table is expandable and big enough to allow for 14 person to enjoy a meal. The chalet has a large fully equipped kitchen open on a spacious living room. Being roomy and very light, the living room offers beautiful volumes with a height of 5 m under ceiling. The Chalet is nicely decorated in local style and cosy. 3 large balconies allow you to enjoy the view on the surrounding mountains.

The chalet is equipped just like our home: TV, games, DVDs, books, Wi-Fi , IPhone compatible speakers , oven and microwave, dishwasher, tumble dryer, washing machine, barbecue , coffee machines etc .

All linens, including towels and bath sheets in the summer for the pool are provided.

During the winter season, its ideal location near three ski-lifts (Samoëns (1.5 km), Vercland (0.8 km) and Morillon (1.5 km)) provides easy and direct access to Flaine Grand Massif ski area (altitude 800-2220 m, 265 km of slopes) and cross-country ski trails along the river Giffre . A shuttle to the ski lifts has a stop 300 meters from the chalet and allows teenagers to be fully independent. At 200 meters from the chalet, Remy will rent you skis.

In the summer, our private heated and secured swimming pool (8x4m) ,will allow you to enjoy the site and the sun with a view on the mountains . Sunbeds are provided, an outdoor table and a gas barbecue allow for meals in the garden.

The possibilities for wonderful walks or cycling / mountain biking are endless nearby. The access to downhill mountain biking trails is easy with Samoens ski lift. Special bikes for downhill sports or just for normal rides can be rented nearby. Guides and maps are available in the Chalet. Many shelters allow for mountain hikes or varied walks, the wonderful site of Sixt is 10 km from the Chalet, and the Chamonix valley is within 40 minutes’ drive.

Samoens is easily accessible by foot, bike - or cross-country skiing in the winter - following the path along the Giffre River. You will find Tennis courts, three small lakes offering opportunities for swimming or fly fishing, a horse-riding center, a mini golf, a ropes course etc available within 2 km.

Lovely, spacious chalet in a beautiful valley

  • 5 of 5

We are 2 families of 4 and had a wonderful time in this chalet. There is plenty of room in the bedrooms and living areas and a lovely outdoor area for soaking up the sun with a drink after skiing. The chalet was clean with hot showers and all the amenities you could need for a week. The chalet is in a quiet but beautiful location and is only a very short drive to both morillon and samoens for shops, bars, restaurants and ski lifts.

My children have already asked if they can stay again! Thank you for a great week.

Lovely spacious chalet in a small hamlet

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week in the chalet. The only small issue was the hot water but it was quickly sorted out by Alain who was very helpful. We didn't have the best snow but again the hosts gave us some good pointers for an excellent walk to a refuge. The Sais / Vercland lift is only a few minutes drive and a good way to avoid the queues.

Comfortabele woning

  • 4 of 5

Mooi huis , 5 minuten rijden van de skilift. Skibus op 10 minuten lopen, komt onregelmatig, dus auto mee is aan te bevelen.

Noel magique au chalet Marvel

  • 5 of 5

J'ai passé Noel 2017 en famille au chalet Marvel. Ce fut parfait. le chalet est très confortable,décoré avec goût, parfaitement chauffé, et super bien équipé. Rien ne manque.

Il y avait beaucoup de neige cette semaine là et nous avons apprécié les routes et la montée au chalet très bien déneigées.

Je recommande ce chalet pour des vacances d'hiver, la vue sur les sommets enneigés est magnifique. Le village de Samoens est vivant et offre des commerces de qualité.

Sympathique séjour

  • 4 of 5

Grand chalet bien équipé, piscine agréable. Et nous adorons cette région. Dommage que l'aspect mitoyen du chalet ne soit pas plus explicite (sauf erreur de notre part...?!?!)
