Ecrins Etoiles 9C, offered by Alps Accommodation Samoens, is a gorgeous 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment situated in the heart of the historic village of Samoens. It is in an exclusive location for your winter and summer holiday, 150m to the ski bus stop or less than 500m from the express ski lift (which takes less than 5 minutes) or an 8 minute walk!
It is a charming home, decorated with a lot of attention and taste. Good care has been given to extensive equipment in this brand new, but yet very cosy and mountain style apartment in this MGM residence, completed in November 2009. This warm and well-equipped apartment offers everything for a comfortable stay for 4 people at any time of the year.
From this apartment you can do everything on foot, just leave and forget your car in the secure underground parking. It also has a private ski locker, fully fitted kitchen, and in addition to the dishwasher there is a washing/drying machine. There is also flat screen TV, DVD player, stereo, I-POD docking, WiFi and free NESPRESSO coffee.
Summer: Samoëns is also an ideal location to spend your holiday during the warmer months. The charming old streets with an array of regional commerce, original architecture and friendly residents provide a wonderful atmosphere that makes you welcome throughout the whole year.
Winter: The Grand Massif is the 4th largest ski area in France and has one of the lowest lift to beds ratios…so much smaller queues than other well know resorts.
Samoens offers some fantastic alternative activities in the winter, so if you are a non-skier there are plenty of other exciting things to take part in, why not try snow shoeing for example...a fantastic experience after which you can enjoy a delicious Savoyard meal in a Yurt on the side of the mountain!
Summer: Samoens is thriving in summer and offers a truly excellent holiday destination for family activities. With average temperatures in the mid to late 20s and numerous activities on our doorstep, it's a holiday not to be missed. With the Grand Massif Express lift now open in summer, you can easily enjoy: Mountain biking, hiking, climbing, rafting and other river activities, quad biking, horse riding, canyoning, swimming in lakes, adventure parks, parapenting, archery, golf, historic tours, botanical gardens, waterfalls, nature reserve, wildlife walks, kids club etc... These are all within 5 minutes of Samoens! A little further afield is Annecy, Geneva and Chamonix Mont Blanc. If this is all too much, then simply relax in the numerous cafes and even at the beaches that surround the local lakes. It’s not essential to drive, but in summer a car is useful and we are only 8 hours drive from Calais. Airport transfers can also be provided and a taxi service operates in Samoens.
