3 of us stayed at Chalet 365 in January 2013 and had a fabulous time.
The chalet is beautiful whilst still being homely; the food is excellent and plenty of it; the very good quality wine was included in the price with bottles that appeared to be bottomless, and the service and hospitality from Chris and Allie was second to none.
The chalet is located quite high up with lovely views facing the mountain and about 15 minutes walk to the village, but we were dropped off and picked up at the ski lift every day (at a time to suit us) so getting around was easy.
One of the highlights for me was the hosted ski day that Chris and Allie took us on (of course they chose a beautiful sunny day to take us out!)
It was great to be able to ski with someone with local knowledge who was also going to take care of you, so it certainly pushed my boundaries – my first half pipe and my first off-piste!! Thanks guys, I wouldn’t have attempted these on my own!
There were 13 staying at the chalet during our week so if you’re looking for a quiet, romantic getaway for 2, this probably isn’t for you as the dining is communal; but we were very lucky as the other guests were absolutely lovely and everyone got along very well. Such is the nature of skiing. In fact in our group of 3, we were of mixed ability so I joined the other guests to ski whilst my companions had lessons, plus there were 2 first timers from different groups who also got together, so it worked out perfectly.
We also loved the fact that Samoens is a traditional French village with character but you still have access to fantastic skiing across 5 or so other resorts.
All in all, I really can’t fault it. Had a fantastic time, have already recommended you to several people and definitely plan on coming back. Thanks Chris and Allie!
