The Rhone/French Alps region
This spectacular and beautiful area is protected and hence hasn’t been spoilt by tourism. Samoens has been awarded a ‘Coq d’Or’ for being one of the prettiest villages in France and is the only ski resort classified by the Caisse des Monuments Historiques. The area is full of character and charm with stonemasonary and farming at the heart, yet still provides the centre for almost every outdoor activity imaginable.
Based in the stunning valley of the Giffre river, the area provides spectacular scenery including mountain lakes, national parks and botanical gardens plus amazing wildlife. Just minutes up the road at Sixt Fer a Cheval are over a dozen enormous waterfalls. It has a great deal to offer for families and individuals of all ages seeking adventure or alternatively, just sheer relaxation.
Samoens is in the heart of the Grand Massif, one of the largest ski areas in Europe. Made up of Flaine, Morillon, Les Carroz, Sixt and Samoens. It offers extensive skiing and snowboarding, with an excellent snow record which is one of the best in the Alps. The super fast gondola from Samoens village takes you up to Samoens 1600m ski resort in just 8 minutes. This delivers you directly into Samoens own extensive ski area, which joins with over 265km of piste, 140 individual pistes plus 80 lifts Click here for a piste map
The ski area is varied and offers runs for all abilities. The area holds the lowest ratio of accommodation capacity to number of ski lifts, which explains the small amount of queues encountered here. The resort has breathtaking views and non skiers can take the grand massif lift from Samoens to 1600m and watch family and friends on the pistes. Beginners are well catered for on the extensive groomed nursery slopes at 1600m, this plateau is one of the largest beginners areas in Europe! Intermediates have a whole host of runs to chose from locally in Samoens, or that take you far a field to neighbouring resorts and beautiful tree lined runs including Europes longest Blue run, the cascades. There are numerous reds and black runs locally in Samoens and Les Carroz and of course over in Flaine, where experts are catered for even further.
The piste - Consists of 14 black runs, 51 red runs, 54 blue runs, 15 green runs and 229 snow canons. A recent 11m Euro investment saw the introduction of a massive free car park at the main Samoens Grand Massif Express lift and a new children's ski area at Samoens 1600. Flaine is currently undergoing major investment with new lifts and runs for 08/09 and 09/10. In a weeks skiing holiday, you'd be really hard pushed to cover all the runs in this huge area.
There are numerous excellent restaurants, including bistros, gourmet, traditional French Savoyard and Pizzerias. A range of cafes and bars and numerous shops cater for all your needs, many of which are located around the historic square. There are typical French markets, beautiful churches, chocolatiers, health and beauty parlours, cash points, doctors, chemists, a cinema, an ice skating rink, creche, swimming pools in summer, bakeries, supermarkets and everything else you would expect from well equipped mountain resorts. The Tourist Office puts on various entertainments in the village square ranging from kids' events to antique fairs throughout the year.
We are delighted to offer an exhilarating summer multi activity holiday between June and September. Please visit our website for more details and to request an itinerary. The Grand Massif Express lift is now open in summer as well as winter; this is fantastic news for walkers, bikers, paragliders and sports enthusiasts alike.
Winter facts….The Grand Massif is the 4th largest ski area in France and has one of the lowest lift to beds ratios…so much smaller queues than other well know resorts. Samoens now has a high speed lift from 1600m up to 2500m…this means less queuing, less time on the lifts and more skiing!
We are also offering some fantastic alternative activities in the winter, so if you are a non skier there are plenty of other exciting things to take part in, why not try our snow shoeing trip for example...a fantastic experience after which you can enjoy a delicious Savoyard meal in a Yurt on the side of the mountain!
There has never been a better time to holiday in the Samoens area, with an abundance of activities to choose from, breathtaking scenery to enjoy, a delightful village to explore and friendly locals to meet. Alps Accommodation are recommended in Good Ski Guide, Where to Ski and Snowboard and Lusso Luxury Lifestyle Magazine.
Getting there…Geneva is our nearest airport. We are able to provide discounted car hire and airport transfers - please contact us for more information.
