Further details indoors

This lovely, traditional Savoyard chalet is built on three levels.

Salon - The warm, comfy and spacious sitting/dining room has an impressive log burning fire. Here you can relax with an aperitif and canapés before enjoying a wonderful home cooked dinner, and whiling away the rest of the evening in the company of your fellow guests.

Balcony - French windows lead on to a generous balcony stretching round most of the building and from here you can enjoy magnificent views of the Giffre Valley and surrounding mountains.

Sitting room - A smaller separate sitting room can be used for reading, cards, watching TV/satellite, a video, a DVD, or just relaxing.

Bedrooms - The 7 en suite bedrooms are equipped with super king size beds, 6 of which can be used as twin beds, and two of which can take a (comfortable) third bed. However, the maximum capacity for dining is 12 adults. A cot can be supplied for very young children sharing their parents' room.

Games and exercise room - This is on the ground floor and is an ideal place for you to get fit or for your children to play. Books, games, CDs, DVDs and videos will all be available for you to use throughout your holiday.

Sauna suite - This is equipped with a shower and WC and offers a great chance to refresh and relax.

Ski and board storage and a drying room are available on the ground floor.

Kitchen - This is fully equipped with 2 ovens & microwaves, 5 ring GAS hob, a large fridge freezer and all the usual utensils you would find in a busy, hard working kitchen. (Self-catered only)

Further details outdoors

In the warmer months there is a five and a half metre circular pool, ideal for cooling off or playing with the children. The large flat garden is great for a kick-around or badminton.

The balcony wraps round most of the chalet and there is a wide terrace at the back which is ideal for BBQs, sunbathing & all your outdoor dining needs. Tables & chairs (18 people), sun loungers (4 people), parasols and a BBQ are all readily available for your use.

Off street flat parking for up to 6 cars.

Further details

In the winter, for full weeks or short breaks (min 3 nights), I offer a ski chalet formula which includes bed, hearty breakfast, afternoon tea and on 6 nights (to allow the chef a night off, and let you sample one of the excellent Samoëns restaurants), a three course dinner with wine, preceded by an aperitif and canapés, and followed by a digestif.

In the Spring, Summer and Autumn months I should be delighted to welcome you any night for B&B with dinner on request.

OUTSIDE THE WINTER SEASON, the whole chalet can be rented for full weeks on a self catered basis.

**Note that the price lists shown here are quoted on a catered basis and that the availability chart is unable to show partial availability. Please therefore always enquire for self-catered rates, for any discounted packages and to check up to date availability**.

The Rhone/French Alps region

Haute Savoie, formerly part of Savoie in Rhône-Alpes, & with a remarkable history, lies at the North end of the French Alps & offers a wide variety of stupendous scenery, interesting place to visit & loads of activities, all year round.

The Grand Massif (Samoëns, Morillon, Flaine, Sixt-Fer-Cheval & Le Carroz) is a fabulous ski area, with 260kms of pistes of all grades.

In summer there are miles of trails & stunning views for hikes, walks, pony, mountain bike and bike rides.

Sixt has a wonderful horse-shoe panorama of the surrounding mountains & an impressive waterfall.

Day trips by car can take you to Chamonix, Mont Blanc, Annecy, Yvoire, Geneva & many other inviting places to visit. Aquaparc at Le Bouveret (Switzerland - 90 mins) is a must for families. Its huge indoor & outdoor swimming parc is well worth a day out regardless of weather.

Just have a great holiday!

Grand Massif

Samoëns is a beautiful, unspoiled (former stonemasons’) village in the Giffre Valley. The only ski resort in France to be listed as 'Monument Historique' it retains the qualities of a real French village. Much has been done to make it an attractive holiday place without destroying its historical and cultural features. It has the advantage over some other resorts of being truly French in nature rather than a complex of buildings purpose-built for winter sports. Here, you can experience the real France, while enjoying a winter sports or summer holiday.

Sample its restaurants and bars & look around the Wednesday market

Visit the Alpine Botanic Garden, museum or cheese-making factory

Use the winter children’s nursery (3 months-6 years), and the skating rink

Try a tour of the village & district, led by well informed guides

See Santa Claus on Christmas Eve & dance at Hogmanay

In February enjoy the weekly 'Savoyard Day' with traditional games, giant tartiflette & dance
