The Rhone/French Alps region
Samoens is part of the Grand Massif, one of the largest ski areas in Europe. It is 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. 2003 saw the opening of a super fast gondola from Samoens, taking you from the village straight up to Samoens 1600 ski resort in just 8 minutes. This delivers you straight into the heart of Samoens own extensive ski area, which joins you with over 260km of piste plus 80 lifts.
The ski area is varied and offers runs for all abilities. The resort offers breathtaking views and even 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 groomed nursery slopes at 1600m. Intermediates have a whole host of runs to chose from that can take you far afield to neighbouring resorts and beautiful tree lined runs. There are numerous reds and black runs locally and of course over in Flaine, where experts are well catered for.
The piste - Consists of 14 black runs, 51 red runs, 53 blue runs,15 green runs and 116 snow canons makes the region ideal for all levels of ability. A recent 11m Euro investment saw the introduction of facilities such as free parking at the main lift and a new children's ski area at Samoens 1600.
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 villages are full of character and charm with quaint streets, yet still provides the centre for almost every outdoor activity imaginable.
Based in the beautiful valley of the Giffre river, the area provides spectacular scenery including mountain lakes, national parks and botanical gardens plus amazing wildlife and 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.
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, crèche, 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.
