About Melanie Lythgo

We live in the UK with our two children. We both work and visit Samoens as a family to relax and unwind. Everyone knows its brilliant for skiing, what's less well know is the huge variety of Summer activities and quiet Autumn walking.

Melanie Lythgo purchased this chalet in 2006

Why Melanie Lythgo chose Flaine - Grand Massif

We first visited Samoens in 2006 and loved it so much we bought our chalet here. We have been coming here ever since and heartily recommend it. Our children love it both in winter for the skiing and in summer for the outdoor pool, lakes, adventure parks, rafting and climbing. Walking in the Autumn is particularly beautiful and very quiet. We love the many walking and cycling routes and the wonderful alpine village centre with its traditional shops, bars and restaurants.

What makes this chalet unique

Spacious, well equipped and comfortable chalet with traditional wood-burning fire, sleeps 6/9 guests. A family owned chalet in a quiet and peaceful location just 10 minutes flat walk from the centre of the beautiful, award winning alpine village of Samoens. Balconies with stunning views, outside terrace, garage and parking. Safe location for children to play summer and winter. Frequent ski bus just 150 metres from the chalet with easy access to the Grand Massif ski area, one of the best skiing areas in Europe. Immediate access on to hiking and cycling trails.
