The Rhone/French Alps region
Samoens and the Grand Massif ski area are the perfect alpine location- they are snow-sure during the winter, and enjoy warm days during the summer months.
The town of Chamonix is only a 40 minute drive away, Annecy and its beautiful lake is less than an hour away, and Geneva in Switzerland is only a 50 minute drive away.
Samoens is the only "historically listed" ski resort in France, due to the beauty of its medieval architecture, and it has been awarded the "Coq D'Or" prize for being one of the most beautiful villages in France It has a tranquil peaceful atmosphere unlike most ski resorts.
Samoens - together with the other villages of Morillon, Flaine, Les Carroz and Sixt - makes up the Grand Massif ski area. Samoens offers direct access to fabulous skiing, starting at 1600, and rising to 2500m, with over 265km of pistes which cater for all abilities. All of our customers receive a 10% discount at the local ski hire shop, and included in the winter price is a day of free on-piste ski guiding.
Apartment Eridan is close to Samoens' outdoor swimming pool, lakes, tennis courts and adventure climbing for children. In summer the possibilities for out-door activities are endless - hiking, biking, rafting on the Giffre river, parapenting, climbing, jet skiing and Via Ferrata!! There is a 18 hole golf course only 20 minutes away.
Samoens centre has lots of individual shops; and there are a wide variety of restaurants - many of which offer Savoyarde specialities such as raclette and fondue.

"Cosy with nice views but not well connected"
We stayed here on a fully catered basis. Chalet Eridan sits on a hill overlooking the village of Samoens. The views across the valley are stunning, but the hill is quite steep, and is not without its … More
Thank you for taking the time to review apartment Eridan. We truly value the opinions of our customers, and were disappointed and surprised when we read this review, especially considering you had left stating that you had “had a lovely time”.
To address your points in order:
We do offer a free shuttle service to the ski lifts in the mornings and returning in the afternoon. Although you walked back to the chalet on three occasions, a return lift was offered to you every day, and it was your choice to walk. We are always flexible when offering runs to the ski lifts, and start early in the morning, to ensure children can get to their ski lessons on time.
Eridan is one of the few chalets in Samoens that offers a fully catered service exclusively for four guests. The cooking is done in our neighbouring chalet, so as not to disturb the guests in chalet Eridan as it is an open kitchen, and then served by your chalet host each night. We offer daily breakfast with a hot option, afternoon tea and homemade cakes, and a four course evening meal with quality wines. We don't currently serve hors d'oeuvres, although we do offer a cheese course every night.
We take on board your criticism that there is no Wifi offered in the chalet. This is something that we hope to remedy in the future. There is an Ipod dock in the living room. Although there are no television channels, we can offer a media player with several hundred movies for you to enjoy. We are sorry that you ran out of hot water on one occasion. We immediately rectified this and it didn't happen again throughout the stay. The chalet is far from “glacial” – there is underfloor heating throughout, heated towel rails in the bathrooms, and an open log fire.
Some of these problems could have been easily remedied during your stay if we had been made aware of your concerns at the time. We are glad that you found Eridan comfortable, with beautiful views and spotlessly clean, and we hope to be able to welcome you back in the future.

"Fabulous views over Samoens and the mountains"
We've stayed in Samoens several times and this chalet was by far the best. The kitchen was a good size and well equipped. Comfortable settees in the living room. The terrace off the master bed… More
