We have just returned from a fabulous week at le grande ourse chalet in samoens. The chalet was beautiful with everything you need to make it home from home and more. Sam and her team ingrid Jamie and Erin were fantastic and couldn't do enough for all 10 of us. Our only regret was that we had to leave to... More

Our adult group of 12 stayed for a week at the start of Feb. The team made us very welcome and could not do enough. The chalet itself is very clean and well appointed. It is spacious and has everything you might need. If you are a light sleeper I would take ear plugs though as sound does travel. You... More

We stayed as a group of 10 in January and had the chalet plus apartment downstairs. We had a wonderful week and unanimously loved the chalet in every respect. It compares very favourably with others we have stayed in being extremely well appointed, clean and with very comfortable beds in all rooms. So convenient for the town and bread shop... More

The location is great, only a steps to the charming village and a couple minutes drive to the gondola. The house is really great, well taken care of, big rooms, well designed, super kitchen. We also booked the (downstairs) adjoining apartment which together with the Chalet was perfect for our large group, there was no problem eating and drinking together,... More

Our family of 5 (including 1 baby) stayed a week in the apartment below chalet L Roche. We were greeted by Jamie who welcomed us and showed us around. There was a lovely welcome pack with the essentials required to tie you over until the shops open (plus some home made biscuits)! The apartment has everything you need, plus the... More

Chalet La Roche is perfectly located within walking distance of the ski slopes and the town centre. We were treated kindly throughout our stay. Not only is the chalet large, but it is beautiful and homely. The best holiday accommodation I have ever had.

We've just returned from a great week at La Grande Ourse. Ingrid, Steve, Jamie and Alice looked after us really well. Breakfast, afternoon tea and evening meal's were plentiful and yummy! The chalet welcoming and furnished thoughtfully with pops of colour. It was also very clean.

My girlfriend and I spent a lovely week in August at Sam and Steve chalet in samoens. The chalet is located in a short walk to the centre of beautiful village of Samoens. Our room had stunning views across the valley and we spent time watching the para gliders zig-zagging across the sky. The chalet was always clean and tidy... More

What a pleasure to deal with Absolute Alpine! Wonderfully professional in every aspect. The Chalet (we had La Roche, including the apartment) was great. So often luxury chalets probably were once, but now they are tired. Not here. Well appointed, well maintained, tastefully decorated, slick and span. Good sized rooms and spacious throughout. A very short walk to the shops... More
