Do you get the picture, Oli is definitely the host with the most. Samoens is a beautiful place, really enjoyed sitting in the square having a pastis or two (for medicinal purposes... More

We had a wonderful welcome at Chalet Giffre even though we arrived really late, long after we were due. Oli is lovely and made us feel really at home. The room was clean, comfortable and well equipped with shutters which keep the room dark if you tend to be woken up by the light at 5am! Upstairs there's a large... More

We stayed with Oli and Louis on the first night of our holidays , although we arrived late & a little rattled after a Sat Nav mess up with three lively boys in tow , they were so welcoming and friendly and softened our long journey with two very large gin and tonics and a nice chat. They were also... 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
