About Sam White

We (Sam and Steve) sold up and moved out of London in 2009 ready to start our adventure in the French Alps. We've since been running our catered chalet company and have also had two lovely children.

Sam White purchased this chalet in 2009

Why Sam White chose Samoëns

We bought the properties off plan so it was the view and the location that really sold it to us. We knew the local builder only employed the very best local artisans so once we were happy with the plans, we could rest assured that the building would be beautiful and extremely well-built. The chalet is south facing so gets a lot of sun and it's also right next door to the Botanical Gardens so there's often a lot of wildlife nearby. It's only a 4 minute walk into the village which was another big plus for us and our guests but because it's slightly elevated, we're a little removed from the thick of things and of course we've got stunning views across the village and the mountains.
