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 Samoëns
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.
