Our Location

Our Chalet Location

Our stunning property is in a conservation area, and as such it hasn't been ruined by excess tourism. Furthermore, Samoens has been awarded a Coq d'Or for being one of the prettiest villages in France and is the only ski resort classified by the Caisse des Monuments Historiques.



Arrived at night, so we were oblivious of the surroundings until morning, and we just completely melted when we saw the inside! Explored all the floors in a rush and fell in love with the bedrooms we picked, cosy lighting and well designed en-suites. Bright living space, kitchens downstairs and up but most importantly a huge table for everyone to have breakfast round to start the day.. very important to us!! If you arrive at night, look forward to the view when you wake.. I can only describe it as magical! We drove out so we could visit stops en route and bring all the skis and snowboards etc BUT in hindsight, you get a discount off hire through the secret chalet so in hindsight, flying is perhaps a better option, especially if you have youngsters. Practical things like great boot room when you walk in, for all your snow gear so lots of space for equipment and drying racks too! And any bumps from the slopes disappear in the hot tub! The hot tub ticked our last box and have to say, the view from there whilst relaxing with a glass of wine and sat with your loved ones was pretty special. Samoens itself has so much character with a really lovely French feel and taxi back is reasonable so the nights out were hassle free, lively town with a few nice bars and restaurants-perfect for us. Locals seemed nice and very accommodating to our group. On the last day and night explored Morzine, only 20 mins down the road so for those wanting a slightly more wild time, it's on your doorstep. Slopes in Samoens seem to cater for all abilities with routes that cross so you can meet and have lunch together even if you have done completely different routes which was nice. Some of the views from the top runs though left me speechless though so if you can get up there, do try. All in all, a gorgeous hidden gem in the mountains with everything you could possibly need on the inside and everything you could possibly want on the outside. Perfect holiday actually. Only changes I'd make would be to fly out and perhaps consider bringing childcare with us for the little ones. If properly accredited and trusted that could be a useful service to offer? Would definitely return
