The Rhone/French Alps region

Haute-Savoie is a department in the Rhône-Alpes region of eastern France, bordering both Switzerland and Italy. Its capital is Annecy. To the north is Lake Geneva and Switzerland; to the south and southeast are the Mont Blanc and Aravis mountain ranges. The French entrance to the Mont Blanc Tunnel to Italy is in Haute-Savoie.

Arguably the prettiest and most enchanting village in the region, Samoëns is located in the Vallée du Giffre and carries the designation of a "ville fleurie" distinguishing it as one of the most beautiful towns in France. It is a hugely popular summer destination as well as being an excellent access point for the Grand Massif, one of the largest ski areas in Europe.

Winter:

The Grand Massif is made up of Flaine, Morillon, Les Carroz, Sixt and Samoens and offers extensive skiing and snowboarding opportunities, with an excellent snow record - one of the best in the Alps. The high speed gondola in the village will take you up to the Samoens 1600m ski resort in less than 10 minutes.

From Samoens 1600 you can access over 265km of piste, with plenty of runds suitable for skiiers and snowboarders of all levels. Over the last few years, millions of Euros have been spent improving the entire region's winter sports infrastructure, including new snow canons to 'guarantee' snow covered runs throughout the season.

Samoens is approx 50 mins drive from Geneva airport or 8hrs drive from Calais. . The drive from Calais is all motorway except for the last 12 miles, making it easily accessible. There are many good hotels / logis along the way. Hiring a car from Geneva airport is a good way to travel to Samoens. Alterntively there is a bus or train service from Geneva airport to nearby Taninges.

Grand Massif

Skiing

The Grand Massif ski area boasts 265km of piste at an altitude of 1600m offering one of the most beautiful and largest ski/snowboard areas in Europe. The area incorporates the 5 interlinked resorts of Samoens, Flaine, Les Carrox, Morillon and Sixt, providing "some of the most varied skiing in the Alps" (Sunday Times). Thanks to its proximity to the Mont Blanc range, the resort boasts some of the most consistent snow cover in the Alps. Some highlights include the stunning views across the mountain peaks including Mont Blanc and Les Aiguilles, the 14km Cascades run from the summit at Flaine to the Sixt valley, the challenging upper pistes of the Tete de Saix, the Jam Park & 'Cool Zones', numerous off piste options for freestyle lovers, and one of the largest areas of beginners slopes in Haute Savoie. We have secured a discounted rental charge for equipment from a nearby rental shop, which also has lockers located at Samoens 1600.

The next closest village to Samoens is Morillon which is a 5 min drive (free ski bus in the winter) or 30 minutes of pleasurable walking. The historic towns of Annecy and Geneva with their beautiful lakes and Lyon with its ancient quarter are all one hours drive away. Chamonix with the famous Mt Blanc, various pretty villages in northern Italy, and the beautiful town of Evain les Bains, are also one hour away.

"Centrally located warm comfortable apartment with amazing balcony!"

Extremely helpful owners and very clear and thorough information provided. Apartment in very central location complete with everything you need for your holiday. Ski locker in basement very useful. Apartment would be great for children too, although I didn't have the children this trip. Lovely and warm and comfortable, with plenty of hot water for a hot shower after a days skiing. We'd love to go back again - would highly recommend this apartment for either Summer or Winter.

"Great apartment - very cosy, well equipped and perfect location"

Stayed at Residence des Anges for a ski week at New Year with two children (7&9). Perfect size, comfy living area and kids loved the bunk beds. Bedding and towels were lovely quality, and kitchen was very well kitted out. Location is excellent for the town square (2 min walk) and Samoens has some lovely restaurants to try out. Easy to catch the bus or walk to the main gondola. If you take a ski locker at Samoens 1600 it makes it even easier. The owners were a delight to deal with, gave loads of useful information and the description was spot on. Thanks for a lovely stay.
