Samoens is set in one of the most beautiful areas in the Haute Savoie Region with fantastic facilities on your doorstep both in summer and winter.
There is something for everyone here, and In the summer the surrounding area is filled with amazing flora and fauna and within driving distance there are many beautiful classic Savoyard towns and villages to visit with some great cities within an hours drive, Geneva, Aoste(Italy) and Annecy where you can visit one of the most beautiful lakes in Europe. With its lovely castle, canal walks, shops, restaurants and historic entertainment a visit to Annecy is a must. Some world class golf courses are also well within an hours' drive including Chamonix and Evian Masters by Lake Geneva. Some of the best skiing to be had anywhere and numerous outdoor and cultural activities are avaiable in both winter and summer.
The only French ski resort to be listed as an ancient monument, Samoens is an enchanting resort unspoilt by commercial pressures. There’s skiing for all tastes, from powder and off piste, seriously steep blacks and moguls, wide open pistes and leisurely green runs through the trees, all crowned by stunning views of Mont Blanc.
The Grand Massif has one of the most reliable snow records, with runs up to fourteen kilometres long, 285 kms of tended trails and slopes, limitless off-piste terrain, and lifts of every shape, size and description.
There are also many other winter activities to keep you occupied; from snowshoeing to igloo building, dog sled rides to skidoos, or simply toboganning and building snowmen in the chalet garden. We are on hand to assist you in booking or organising any of these activities during your stay.
Away from the slopes the village of Samoens has a medieval square, gothic church, timber-fronted patisseries and picture-box houses, it offers a good selection of shops, café bars, restaurants and other facilities to ensure your stay isn’t just about the time you spend on the slopes but about enjoying the time off them too.
In the Summer there are many local cultural and music festivals, rock climbing, via ferratta, lake and beach, volley ball, tennis, paragliding, horse-riding, ballooning, hiking, mountain biking, rafting, helicopter rides over Mont Blanc, Golf and canoeing....quite simply too many to list!
