My wife and I bought this lovely apartment while based in Geneva. Our two kids became excellent skiers on the slopes here over the past 4 seasons and we enjoyed lovely hikes in the neigbouring nature reserve... We have since moved from the area but look forward to coming back to Samoens often! We hope you will enjoy the area as much as we have and look forward to sharing this special place with you!
Peter purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Peter chose Samoëns
This area has everything for the outdoor enthusiast. We love skiing, but also hiking and I am a keen road cyclist. Samoens provides unique access to ALL of these activities within easy range of a convenient international airport and yet retains its rustic charm of a fully functioning traditional French village.
What makes this Apartment unique
We looked for a property in Samoens for 3 years before deciding on this one! It met all of our requirements for quality, energy efficiency, proximity to town and services, views and adequate living-space, recognizing that we would not be able to be there full time and wanted to have a great experience when we can come!

Fantastic accommodation in the centre of Samoens
Beautiful apartment which is right in the centre with lovely views. It really is home from home. Large sunny balcony, well equipped and very comfy beds. Good collection of dvd’s we worked our way through. Thoroughly recommend. The nicest apartment we have stayed in at Samoens by far. Very helpful owners and detailed information provided.
Fabulous family apartment in Samoens
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lewis' apartment in Samoens. The apartment is very clean, well equipped and only a few minutes walk from the village. Access to the slopes is very easy only a few minutes away in the car. The village has some really great bars and places to eat and its certainly somewhere we would return to. Great place, thank you Peter.
Fabulous Family Holiday Apartment
We stayed for a week at the apartment in Samoens this Easter and had a fantastic time. The apartment is ideally situated within a three minute walk of the town centre with its restaurants, bars and shops and a five minute drive to the Samoens Telecabin. We found the accommodation to be very comfortable, well equipped and quiet with lovely views from the balcony. The underground car park and lift were especially useful. We thoroughly recommend the apartment for a family holiday as there is so much to do in the local area. We definitely plan to return next year.
Superb location in Samoens
Peter's apartment is in an ideal location, about 150 metres from the square. Sitting on the balcony, watching the sun descend behind the mountains, you are looking across an open field to the church and the town hall beside the square.
The village cats provide great entertainment as they stalk the moles and voles that live in the turf. One morning we saw three deer on the grassy hill 40 metres away.
The apartment is well equipped for self-catering and a really good sofa bed boosts the sleeping space. The living area has plenty of space for six people.
The bedrooms are a bit small and there is only one loo - but the apartment and location are so nice that you forgive that.
We stayed four weeks and were sad to leave.
Appartement bien équipé et fonctionnel !
Nous avons passé une excellente semaine pour le nouvel an 2016. L'appartement est particulièrement bien situé avec les commerces à proximité et un petit train qui vous emmène au pied du GME.
Il est également très bien agencé. Nous étions 5 pendant la semaine mais avons pu être assis à 8 pour le réveillon sans problème.
Looking forward to our next stay
We had a wonderful time in this apartment. We're very much missing our post ski beer on the balcony watching the sun setting over the village. Its a beautiful place and the perfect getaway
