Our chalet is totally unique to Samoens as we are right up the mountain in amongst the trees and the skiing. You can be skiing within minutes of leaving the chalet in the morning, and you don't have to walk anywhere in your ski gear.
We drop you on the edge of a blue, a red or a green run and you ski for as long or as little as you want. Then we'll collect you from the piste or apres ski if you prefer.
The chalet is located at Samoens 1600 which is in the Grand Massif ski domaine, an hour's drive from Geneva.
It is possible to ski back to the chalet off-piste for experienced skiers/boarders, but you cannot ski out onto a piste.
Samoens village is down in the valley at 800m. It is a traditional stone masons village and very French with particularly beautiful architecture centered around the town square. You can't currently ski into Samoens village as there is no piste, but you can take the Grand Massif express down and it is certainly worth the trip. Alternatively you can ski down to Sixt, Vercland, or Morillon and take the free ski bus to Samoens.
The chalet has 6 en-suite bedrooms: 4 large family suites which each has a double bed plus two single beds. 1 is large enough for us to add 2 additional single beds if required. On the first floor we have 2 further double/twin rooms which each sleep 2. Rooms can be configured in a number of different ways, so please let us know your requirements.
The Living Space:
We have an enormous open plan living room which will easily seat 25 and has a stone fire-place and double doors which open up into our huge private garden. The garden is perfect for tobogganing, and also has a lovely outdoor hot tub with uninterrupted views of the pistes and mountains.
The separate snug has TV, Wii, board games, a children's toy box and enough DVDs to keep most movie buffs going for at least a week.
We have free wifi (although this can be switched off on request!)
The chalet has a very warm heated boot room which means warm, dry boots in the morning :)
There are extra toilets, one upstairs and one right by the front door and boot room
There is free parking for around 6 cars, although we could probably squeeze more in if needed
For those with young children, we have plenty of toys for all ages, high chairs, travel cots, car seats and baby baths as required. We can also provide changing mats, baby sleeping bags, toddler and child cutlery, high chairs, plastic plates and bowls.
No smoking in the chalet, but you can smoke outside on the terrace
