The Rhone / French Alps / Haute-Savoie region
Samoens is a traditional French village in Haute Savoie and is only 80kms from the nearest airport in Geneva. The village remains unspoilt and does not have high rise concrete apartment blocks that are present in so many other French resorts. It flourishes all year round.
There is an abundance of opportunities for the out of doors enthusiast throughout the year making it a delightful holiday destination at any time. The area has a good snow record in winter and warm sunny summers. Its location also makes it a perfect base from which to explore the surrounding area with towns including Chamonix, Morzine and Annecy all within an hour's drive.
Couples, groups of friends and families of all ages will love this picturesque village with all it has to offer. Besides the many outdoor pursuits there is also an excellent choice of bars and restaurants tucked away in its narrow streets in which to relax and refuel after the exertions of the day. Many are traditional Savoyard in style and attract a mixed clientele of both locals and visitors alike.

Besides river focused activity other options include golf, parapenting, horse riding, climbing, walking up into the mountains and mountain biking.
When it's too warm to be energetic you can be lazy and take a stroll through the village, stopping off for icecream or a beer sur terrace to watch the world go by.
Samoens also has an outdoor activity park called Indiana Park. Amongst its facilities are 6 tennis courts, archery, golf driving range, children's play area with slides, roundabouts and swings, football pitch, lakes and roller blading paths. Children will love the woodland assault course of ladders, walkways and rope slides.
In summer many of the winter pistes become golf courses. In Haute Savoie golfers are spoilt for choice. There are 8 courses within an hour's drive of Samoens, all enjoying spectacular settings with stunning backdrops including Mont Blanc and Lac d'Annecy which will leave a permanent imprint in your memory bank.
Samoens is situated in the Grand Massif ski area which includes Flaine, Morillon, les Carroz and Sixt. The Samoens cable car takes 8 minutes to reach the ski area.

Samoens is beautiful and loads to do in the area- lovely walks along the river, outdoor swimming pool, white water rafting and paragliding to name a few. Hike up to Lac de Ger was a real highlight and the restaurant at the lake is fantastic but we also spent a lot of time chilling out by the chalet and sampling the local wines and cheeses! The chalet is in a fantastic location just a couple of minutes from the river, 5-10mins to bars, restaurants and centre of town and has everything you need. Beautiful residence in a fab location - what more could we ask? We went in summer we noticed the ski bus stop was only 3-4 mins from the chalet door. We would definitely go back .
