They were very knowledgeable of the area, conscientious of our needs and planned a great itinerary for us too. They even offered to put on a BBQ for... More

I went out to Samoens a short late Summer break on a recommendation to stay in Chalet Giffre. After my visit, I couldn't recommend it highly enough. The Chalet itself is a wonderful, clean and homely place hosted by Oli and Lois, who couldn't do enough for you. From making sure your stay is perfect, to telling you where the... More

Heard a few things about Samoens along the way and it really is a hidden Gem. We were actually thinking about coming here in the winter but ended up here in the summer for a family holiday for one reason and another. Loads to do, lovely chilled out vibe and the Chalet Giffre just mirrored the location. Relaxed, friendly and... More

They also cooked amazing some amazing dinners (Just 20 Euros for 3 courses inc wine). They were also great company with plenty of suggestions on what to see and where to go.... More
