our family of four had a wonderful time in this fully equipped, comfortable and warm apartment, fantastic views to the mountains, quiet area very close to the town centre, local ski mini train takes you straight to the 1600 gondola every half hour stops outside apartments , Samoens is a super, traditional French town, very friendly, would highly recommend.

a wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

the property is beautifully maintained and feels loved. Everything you need is there as well as lots of little extras, board games, information about the area, walking guides, etc. The location is perfect for a family with an eating area with beautiful views from the balcony, bars and restaurants a stone's throw away, but still very quiet. Samoens is a wonderful place with loads to do and beautiful scenery. We recommend the adventure park and swimming lake at verchaix, the walks in the little green book in the coffee table, rafting down the giffre with nunayak, and the circque du fer a cheval for scenery. Joanna, the owner, was really helpful prior to the trip with regular correspondence and helpful information provided. We will definitely go back, in fact we're struggling to work out why we came home at all.

A lovely apartment in a great mountain village

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in Samoens during the ski season and this was by far the nicest accommodation we stayed in so far. The apartment is comfortable, attractive and spacious and has everything you need. It is in close proximity to the village and the little train that takes you to the Grand Massif Express ski lift stops just outside the residence. There is also a fabulous ice rink which my children enjoyed in the afternoons following their morning ski lessons. Also, as the apartment is on the top floor without neighbours, you can really enjoy the peace and quiet. A sofa bed in the living room could make the apartment even more appealing for slightly larger groups.

Superb apartment in a great position.

  • 5 of 5

5 day skiing trip in this delightful, extremely well furnished apartment. Everything we could need was provided and the apartment was spotlessly clean and well furnished. Amazing position within a few minutes walk of a good variety of restaurants. Pretty town with lots of character. Close to the ski lift to take you up to the slopes where there is a wide variety of runs for all abilities. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return again in the near future.

Great apartment, would highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here - fantastic apartment - very comfortable, spacious and well equipped, with a lovely view from the balcony. The owners were very helpful and responsive when we had any queries. We had never been to Samoens before in the summer, but it was beautiful and there was so much to do (high wires, rafting, biking to name a few) and plenty more we have saved for another visit. We will definitely be back!
