High quality & very comfortable Chalet

  • 5 of 5

A lovely property in a beautiful location with stunning views and a short drive from the town. All the bedrooms are a great size and the living area is comfortable with more than ample seating area with a great warming log fire great to come home to after a hard days skiing. The kitchen and breakfast area is large, modern and well equipped with a separate large dinning table to eat play cards and drink wine.

The owner was very helpful and the French agent is based nearby in the town. You do need a car as the town is too far to walk in the winter. Out teenagers loved the skiing but the town was very lively apres ski but dead after 7.30pm.

this is a stunning lovely chalet !

Séjour Parfait - Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour au Chalet Bel Hiver.

Il est situé sur les hauteurs de Samoens à 5 min en voiture du centre ville.

Le chalet est très confortable, bien décoré et il a une belle terrasse ensoleillé avec une superbe vue.

Petit plus sympa s'il y a de la neige (ce qui n'était pas le cas à Noel 2016) le chalet a un grand jardin ainsi qu'un grand terrain vide à côté dans lequel on peut faire de la luge, des bonhommes de neige.

Nous avons séjourné à deux familles très confortablement car il y a deux coins nuit séparés et deux salles de bain, le salon est vraiment grand avec une belle cheminée fermée ce qui ne pose pas de soucis de sécurité avec les jeunes enfants.

En bref un endroit où nous reviendrons avec plaisir.

We enjoyed our stay in the chalet "bon hiver". The chalet is spacious and well decorated. We loved the big living room with the closed chimney. We stayed with two families comfortably.

We will be happy to come back there.
