About joanne Faithfull
After enjoying several Winter and Summer breaks in Samoens, we finally bought an apartment for our family holidays. We wanted to make it a 'real home from home' and we hope you enjoy your holiday here as much as we do. If you wish to stay longer please feel free to contact us . We are no longer working with Alps Accommodation as we feel we can offer a more competitive price without an Agent. Please feel free contact us if you require any information

Wonderful apartment in Samoens
This lovely apartment was so very comfortable and well equipped and in a superb village centre location. It really felt like home from home. A good night’s sleep in comfortable beds made the trip most enjoyable! The walking was superb. I will definitely be booking again.
We three had a lovely time in your appt - thank you!
Very comfortable and had everything we needed, thank you too for the welcome wine and nibbles (very nice and much appreciated).
Excellent communication and help from Jo to do all she could to make our holiday go smoothly. Brilliant!
Hi Judy ,
So glad you had a great time. We love the fact you can get a morning flight to Geneva and it is so close you can have lunch up the mountain and an afternoon ski the same day... a real 'Secret Escape'... come back anytime ,Summer is fun too!
Charming, Comfortable and Convenient Property
I stayed at the property with a group of friends to go skiing in March 2019. The flat was charming and comfortably furnished. The showers were good and there was plenty of hot water (very important when you come back from a day on the slopes!). The flat was well provided with a full range of cooking utensils etc and we cooked our own meals most nights. The flat is very conveniently situated a short walk from the town centre and about 400 metres walk from the Grand massif Lift. We had a car but the Ski Bus stop is only a few steps away. The town is very traditional and pretty with all the usual facilities but it does get busy at weekends. It is worthwhile booking a table in advance at one of the many restaurants on friday and saturday nights if you are eating out . The flat is clean and well maintained and the local manager was most helpful. It was exactly as described in the listing particulars. I would certainly recommend the property to a friend or relative and hope to return there in the future!
Beautiful, cozy and perfectly located apartment
The apartment was as beautiful as on the pictures. It is located right in the centre of Samoens near shops and restaurants so you don't need a car. We found the apartment was beautifully decorated and felt very homely unlike most holiday apartments. The apartment is South and West facing and is light even in the middle of winter. We have rented many holiday apartments over the years and this was the best one we had. It was perfect for 2 people with 2 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
You can see that the owner is really attentive to details and to making the apartment a home.
We will definitely return here whenever we visit Samoens and we would recommend it to our friends and family.
Fabulous family apartment in the very heart of beautiful Samoens
Stylish apartment, nice mountain views from the balcony terrace. Excellent location in the centre of the village. The apartment is thoughtfully kitted out with everything you need. Private underground parking, and ski room. We enjoyed a very comfortable stay with our two young children. Excellent communication with the very pleasant owner throughout. Highly recommended.
Glad you had a great stay and you enjoyed your stay in our apartment. Look forward to seeing you again . All the best
This is the second time we have stayed in the apartment and my husband and I had a lovely 7 days ski
The apartment is very comfortable and convenient for not just the town but the skiing.we were lucky to have great snow and generally drove to The Morillon loft as it’s very close and you can ski to the bottom and have a livener in the little bar opposite the lift!
Thank you for your review . Glad you had a good time and lots of snow , looks like more is on the way ...
All the best
