PureChalets specialise in offering fully catered ski & snowboarding holidays in the charming alpine village of Samoens. We also offer a range of catering options in the Summer. The company is privately run and owned by Andy & Liz. We have created a warm atmosphere to ensure that you enjoy a relaxing & stress-free holiday, and the chalet is ideal for families.

Chalet Orion is our brand new catered chalet. It is located in an ideal position around 200m from the town centre, one of the best located chalets in Samoens, with breath-taking views of the village and mountains.

Breakfast and afternoon tea with homemade cakes is served every day of your stay. A delicious four-course evening meal with quality wines is served on six of the seven nights you are with us. Chalet Orion has plenty of après ski entertainment on site - a luxury four seater hot-tub with amazing mountain views, a Wii console and an honesty bar.

Samoens is one of the most beautiful villages in France. Part of the Grand Massif ski area, which connects five resorts including Flaine, Samoens is on the doorstep of an awesome 265km of pistes, starting at 1600m and rising to 2500m. The chalet is in a great location, less than a 15 minute walk to the main Grand Massif Express lift and only a 2 minute walk to the centre of Samoens. Geneva airport is just one hour away and we offer a transfer service to get you to and from the airport.

About this location

The Grand Massif region

Samoens and the Grand Massif ski area are the perfect alpine location- they are snow-sure during the winter, and enjoy warm days during the summer months.

The town of Chamonix is only a 40 minute drive away, Annecy and its beautiful lake is less than an hour away, and Geneva in Switzerland is only a 50 minute drive away.


Samoens is the only "historically listed" ski resort in France, due to the beauty of its medieval architecture, and it has many authentic French bars, shops and restaurants - it has been officially recognised as one of the prettiest villages in France. Unlike most ski resorts, it has a tranquil and peaceful village centre.

For winter, Samoens, together with the other villages of Flaine, Morillon, Les Carroz and Sixt, forms part of the Grand Massif ski area. Samoens offers direct access to fabulous skiing, starting at 1600m and rising to 2500m, with over 265km of pistes,

For summer, Chalet Orion is close to the leisure park in Samoens - here there is a large outdoor swimming pool, lakes, tennis courts and adventure climbing. In summer, the things to do in Samoens are endless - biking, climbing, walking, rafting, canoeing, parapenting or Via Ferrata! There is also an 18 hole golf course 20 minutes drive away and an ice rink in the centre of Samoens.

There are many traditional shops and restaurants, where you can enjoy a wide range of food from traditional fondues and raclettes to fine dining. There is a charming weekly market every Wednesday.

We had a wonderful stay here. The chalet is very roomy clean and bright. Only problem was not having access to a washing machine during the summer break( there were 6 of us), otherwise superb. Loved the hot tub. Andy and Liz(owners) very helpful and gave excellent advice on what to do in the area. 5 minute walk to the village which has lovely restaurants (hill involved). opportunities for cycling, tennis, and a swimming pool within the village. Well-stocked supermarket. easy access (by car) to surrounding villages. We took part in white water rafting, local walks with stunning scenery and visited Chamonix (less than an hour away by car) where you can visit ice caves. Would be very happy to go back.
