Samoëns, Haute-Savoie

Grand views over lovely Samoëns from the terrace and balconies, a big cedar hot tub and delicious dinners in this luxurious chalet


5 rooms


Rooms sleep 11


Perched on the mountainside above the lovely old resort of Samoëns, is this luxurious, new-build pine chalet; one of four settled quietly down a private lane. Majestic Giffre Valley views stretch from the terraces and balcony, and a great big cedar hot tub is the perfect place to unwind and soak away the day’s strain. Bathrooms are outstanding; glossy bedspreads and scatter cushions finish pristine bedrooms from which you can wander straight out and perhaps catch the sun setting behind the mountain. In the open-plan sitting/dining room, plush leather sofas sit in the glow of a real fire. Breakfast is just as relaxed – simply let friendly and attentive Vicky and Rob know when you’d like it. They are passionate about food and really care about the quality and variety of their dishes. Samoëns is in the massive Grand Massif ski area and there’s scope too for cross-country skiing and snowshoe trekking; of course guides can be arranged, as can transfers and spa treatments. Only an hour from Geneva and very family-friendly.

Amazing views, great accommodation and wonderful hosts - who gave us excellent touring advice and superb food.


We had a great stay in this lovely chalet which must have some of the most spectacular views in the valley. No attention to detail has been spared - the bathrooms are fabulous. Rob and Vicky are great hosts. Breakfast was very social and an end of day barbecue in the late evening sun on the balcony was delicious. Samoens is a very pretty town with a beautiful river running through it and loads of activities on the doorstep. We did some great walking in the surrounding mountains. The village and the chalet are excellent Summer and Winter destinations.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Rob & Vicky Tarr

  • Discount on ski hire when booked through host.
  • The chalet is located half way between the two main ski lifts in Samoëns taking skiers straight into the Grand Massif, which with 265km of piste is the fourth largest ski area in France.
  • Fully catered price includes a courtesy in-resort shuttle service to and from the two main ski lifts in Samoens.
  • The chalet is located just one hour from Geneva airport so with an early departure from the UK you can be on the slopes for lunch!
  • Enjoy some après-ski in the newly refurbished La Reposette restaurant and bar at the bottom of the Saix lift in Samoens.
  • Enjoy a full or half day snow-shoeing in the Sixt-Passy National Park with our local guide or try your hand at building an igloo with the family!
