The Rhone/French Alps region
The Haute Savoie stretches south from the shores of Lake Geneva to the Italian border and some of the best known ski resorts are to be found here; Chamonix, Megeve, Flaine and Morzine among them, scattered among the high peaks that make up much of the impressive scenery. The Grand Massif itself is the fourth largest ski area in France with 265 km of pistes to enjoy. At its centre is Flaine 1600; purpose built, the sixties Bauhaus architecture is now softened by new developments and currently the focus for extensive new investment and improved infrastructure. Circling Flaine the villages of Sixt, Samoens, Morillon and Les Carroz nestle into the lower slopes, each with their own special characteristics.
This is a lovely place to come for a winter holiday with your family, by yourselves or in a large group; the resort is very friendly and has expanded without losing its individuality. It also offers a whole range of different activities so it is especially suitable for groups where not everyone wants to ski.
With glorious views and surrounded by mountain peaks Samoens lies at the heart of the valley, a very pretty small town and the only ski resort awarded 'Coq d'Or' and classified as an historic monument. Proud of its’ history and traditions, stone masons, farmers, woodmen, cheese makers and wine producers still flourish here and the streets and nearby slopes are scattered with traditional working farms and artisan workshops set amongst the chalets. The Giffre valley winds up past Samoëns to Sixt, where it comes to a halt facing the rugged circle of glaciers that make up the Fer à Cheval. From here, mountain and cross county trails lead into the National Park.
Development here has been paced, allowing Samoens and the other local villages to retain much of their individuality, all of which adds to their appeal. People often come here year after year throughout the seasons, to enjoy the quality of life, to appreciate the tradition and history of the valley, and to make the most of all that is on offer.
