Apartment in Samoens, Haute Savoie, Rhone-Alpes, France - 8 Minute Stroll From Samoens, A Home From Home
About Delyth Johnstone
Our family of five have used our apartment in Samoens as our home from home. Samoens has been our summer and winter base for four years, with many skiing adventures in the beautiful alpine scenery and energetic summer and autumn walks in the countryside. Samoens has been a safe haven for the children, happy to cycle in the valley, swim in the village pool, play outside table tennis in the park and paraglide either down the snowy pistes or above the leafy summer woods. We have enjoyed many trips into Italy and Switzerland and our family adore this area of Europe.

Warm and cozy apartment within walking distance to Samoëns centre.
A really great apartment. We were 2 families combining 4 adults and 3 children. The mezzanine level was great for the sofa bed for one of the children and for them to hang out in and watch a movie.
Kitchen is very well equipped, nespresso machine was an added bonus. The apartment has one full bathroom with a toilet and one of the bedrooms has a little shower room. Only one toilet wasn’t a problem for us but I can imagine could be tricky if it was 6 adults staying. Everything in the apartment is of a high standard and it is very well furnished. The walk in to the the village centre is only 10-15 mins with a hill on the way back. The Mums in the group walked to the gondola every morning and was only 25 mins or so. A lovely walk and you take in the beautiful” surroundings. We would definitely return! Thanks for having us to stay!!
Lovely, well equipped apartment in a beautiful location.
Everything about our week in Samoens was perfect, starting with the very thorough instructions on how to find the apartment! The apartment is located within easy reach of the village shops, we walked to the bakery most mornings for fresh croissants.
The apartment itself is really well provisioned- the kitchen has all cooking equipment you could ever need which is often not the case in holiday rentals! The children were very pleased with the mezzanine level and the toys and games.
The village itself makes a holiday easy, swimming, walking and rafting. We particularly enjoyed Lac Bleu.
Communication with Delyth were great- very prompt and helpful in all respects.
Thank you for a great week- we hope to return!
Thanks you Hannah
Great you enjoyed Samoens and thank you for looking after our home. It has been a pleasure and if you need us again give us a shout
Everything you need with great view
Just back from a great week skiing in Samoëns. The apartment is excellent for a family. There is everything you need and the little play area was just perfect.
There is also a great unrestricted view to the front and the balcony was an ideal little sun trap.
Only reason I'm giving 4* is kind of my own fault, this is based on our overall stay, the apartment is definitely a 5*. It's just the walk to the village centre is more like 20 mins with two quite young children and we love to walk but the hill on the way back was just too much for them. This meant for the nights we ate out (not many) or just a simple walk we had to drive to the centre but no real biggy.
The owners are great and very helpful and we will definitely consider this place again for next year.
Nice and cozy chalet with the views to die for
Stayed in the chalet for a week - 2 families with 2 young kids. It's a very comfortable and cozy place with everything you need. Beautiful views from an open space room. Conveniently located but will need a car to get anywhere. Although, central Samoens is just 2 min down the hill driving very close to a yummy boulangerie with the best almond croissants ever and all other shops and amenities. Would definitely stay again. Owners were very helpful. All in all had fab week and a very pleasant experience. Would benefit from the 2nd toilet.
