The Lazy Labrador is a unique Samoens rental property - complete with outdoor 'mazot' cabin, this charming 18 Century farmhouse has recently been renovated, while retaining all the rustic beauty of a traditional savoyard farmhouse. The property is located in a historic hamlet in Les Chosalets (between Chantemerle & La Rosiere), just a 10 minute drive from the heart of Samoens and the 'Grand Massif Express' (GME) ski lift.
The living space features a Norwegian 'Jotul' stove and is a snug spot for board games. Choose records from the vast music collection and enjoy atmospheric evenings with friends and family. The kitchen retains a beautiful original stone floor and is equipped with modern cooking equipment - the perfect setting for a post-ski fondue or tartiflette.
This comfortable home is provides accommodation for 6 - 9 guests in 4 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms. There are 4 entirely unique bedrooms, including a master ensuite with adjoining wet room, its walls lined in Travertine stone. There are 2 further bedrooms within the house and a traditional 'mazot' across the road from the house, providing a romantic sleepy hideaway for couples or teenagers wanting to escape 'family time'!
