Chalet Giffre in Samoens was one stop in a long hiking route through the French Alps. I stayed here with 3 other friends, and we could not have asked for a better experience. Oli and Lois were the most welcoming hosts, greeting us warmly and offering us water before showing us to our rooms (it had been a long, hot... More

Oli and Lois were incredible hosts during our short stop in Samoens. Immediately after arriving, we felt right at home. They really went above and beyond to make us comfortable. Looking forward to my next trip to Chalet Giffre!

Hosts Oli and Lois were great, food perfect and living area great for groups to relax. Our bedroom was clean and spacious with beautiful views to the surrounding mountains. The location you cant beat. You could walk to the ski lifts but Oli will give you a lift if you want. And all the bars, restaurants and shops are just... More

We were met at Geneva Airport, as arranged, and it took approximately 1 hour to reach the Chalet. On arrival, we had tea whilst fitting our ski boots and were driven to the lift and on the slopes within 2 hours of arriving in Geneva! Transfers to and from the slopes were provided every day even although the ski-bus service... More

Chalet Giffre is a great option if you want to maximise your ski time. We were picked up at the airport in the morning then offered bacon butties whilst we were getting fitted up with our hire skis and boots - out on the slopes by 1.30pm so we could enjoy a good 3.5 hrs skiing on our first day....

I cannot fault this Chalet and the attentiveness of everyone was second to none. Having been skiing for 35 years this is easily one of the best holidays I've ever had. We took our 6 year old twins with us and we all had an amazing time. The ski area itself is super there are so many runs for all... More

I have had two ski weekends and a family week here in the last three seasons and on all of the trips we have been very well looked after. The transfers worked so well; within two hours of landing all four of us were kitted out with the chalet ski equipment and on the slopes, on the return I was... More

Fantastic week, in an extremely accommodating and helpful chalet. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at all. The pick ups/drop off from the slopes were a lovely luxury. Anthony (the chef) and his partner Carmen, cooked and served gorgeous meals and were great company. Great location, couple of minutes walk into a gorgeous village. Well done Tina and... More
