“Best time ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Thank you Vicky & Rob. Breakfast, our room with a beautiful view, bath oil & cream, that I finished
up in Barcelona, was lovely too. Let's not forget the company. Two families were also staying & the converstaion flowed.
Any questions & Rob was there to assist us. We even had snow flakes, the first evening. We wish we had stayed more than 3 nights, as the town of Samoens is so charming.
Their chalet is so welcoming & beautiful.
Thank you again...Linda & Bob

Linda / Bob,

Many thanks for your kind words and just pleased that you managed to pack so much into your short time with us in Samoëns. We'll certainly remember the evenings around the dinner table - after all it is the guests that make the place!
Happy travels and hope to see you in the French Alps again some time in the future - perhaps for some skiing next time??

Fantastic stay at the end of the Summer holidays. Spotless accomodation fitted out to an excellent high standard. Great views across the valley from room, balcony or hot tub. Rob & Vicky are great hosts and the food is really good including evening meals(particularly the best ever cheesecake!), mid-afternoon cakes as well as getting up extremely early to make us breafast before we drove to the airport.

The location is good with an easy walk into Samoens itself for activities, shops and restaurants.

Loads of activities to keep the teenage family amused as well, which Rob and Vicky will offer advice on and help book. There's plenty to do - we crammed into 4 days rockclimbing, canyoning and hired bikes to cycle up the Tour de France climb "Col de joux plane" .

Definately recommend this accomodation.

Spent a lovely week in June at this first class chalet. Beautiful rooms, bathrooms and furnishings, superb food, first class service and, added to this, wonderful uninterrupted views of valley and mountains - heaven!! Vicki and Rob were wonderful hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. Walking opportunities are great and very scenic,but there is also the opportunity to chill out and relax on the spacious terraces too (try Vicki's home-made cakes if you fancy being spoiled even more!) We will certainly return.

Room Tip: Ground floor room suitable for disabled persons

Rob and VIcki were the perfect hosts, interesting,informative and accommodating. We were so impressed its now booked for next year, for someone that likes to go to a new resort every season they must have made a good impression. Don't be put off by the piste maps there is plenty of great skiing for a week.

Stayed with Rob and Vicki due to recommendation from our friends who stayed in March last year (and in fact came back with us too). We were really impressed with our whole stay - everything was of a really high quality: rooms, hospitality, accommodation, and the food was seriously fantastic. Rob and Vicki do what they say, they run their business with a passion and it shows. Thanks very much for a wonderful break both.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely but if we went again we would ask for the valley view. Our friends had this, bu...

First visit to Samoens for New Year ... snow, snow and more snow!

Chalet Apassion is hosted by the incredibly hospitable Rob & Vicky and is situated just outside Samoens. Its a brand new property offering 5 very lovely bedrooms with huge bathrooms for a ski chalet! It also has a very spacious sitting/dining area with the most stunning views. Food is excellent and Vicky should be proud of the above average food she presents! Its not a ski in or ski out proprety but Rob does offer a shuttle to various access points all within 5 min drive. I have stayed in quite a few chalets and Apassion really does offer superb value for money. With Geneva just over an hour away, its perfect!

Room Tip: Couple of the rooms can get quite hot due to the proximity of the chimney breast running through the...

This was my second stay at Apassion. First stay was in June for a cycling holiday, which was excellent with the Joux Plane just opposite & more great cycling in the area. Rob & Vicky are lovely people and great hosts and have a fantastic new chalet.
So I took the family back there in October. Rob & Vicky, chalet Apassion and the French Alps didn't disappoint. The family loved it and we will be returning to Chalet Apassion as soon as we can.
