Beautiful apartment, lovely facilities and wonderful staff...but in common with all the other apartments and hotels in the village, let down by the bus service. Samoens has recently invested a lot in its lift system, new pistes and more accommodation. Unfortunately, the bus system has become a joke. The frequency has reduced from previous years and the timetable appears to be a fantasy. The blue and yellow lines have merged, resulting in journeys to the lift that can take three times as long. The bus drivers don’t even bother to show which route they are running, nor do they seem to care (even when a bus has not turned up). Any resort which has its only lift station outside the village must provide frequent buses that run to a timetable. The lift passes are expensive without wasting 30minutes for a bus that does not turn up.

Great apartment, fab service. We've never stayed in a village before, always in a ski resort, ski in ski out. I was pleasantly surprised. The ski bus stopped right next to the apartments, it was free which I wasn't expecting and took only 3 mins to get to the Grand Massive ski lift in Samoens. The apartment was warm, comfortable, had every facility we needed. The beds were comfortable which is unheard of in many of the ski apartments we have stayed in before. The spa facilities, pool. jacuzzi, steam room, and sauna were great. Just one complaint, the jacuzzi and pool were too cold. We did complain to the reception, but they were adamant it was set at 32 degrees and this was absolutely fine. Having a hot tub myself and knowing we have it set at 39 we did not agree, in fact we had goose bumps whilst sat in it. However, this was our only complaint, we had no others, it was fantastic!

Obviously Samoens is not a ski in/ ski out resort, but access to the Grand Massif ski area (the bowl at Flaine is great!) was really easy with the Grand Massif Express cable car, and regular free ski buses around the town. The apartment-hotel is very central to town (which is very charming), and just a few steps away from the ski bus. The reception staff are friendly, but don’t volunteer information without prompting, so do your research! Our 2 bed Apartment was small but comfortable (better beds than most ski chalets!). Kitchen was well stocked with saucepans etc, including hand-blender, steamer cooker, coffee machine, kettle, dishwasher etc. One thing to note, the only oven was a microwave/ convection oven (all in one), which threw me as I was cooking a turkey crown with roast potatoes etc for Christmas Day. Saved by the steamer which we used to part-cook the turkey, and a juggle between potatoes and meat cooking in the oven. Got away with it but it was a bit unnerving on our arrival! Pool area small but clean and pleasant. Busy on days when the skiing was restricted due to weather. Check out by 10am, or 11am if you pay extra. Lobby downstairs nice, but locked after 8pm so no table pong or snooker in the evenings. Things like fondu sets, pancake sets etc available from reception if you ask. They give you a day or 2’s notice that you have to have emptied rubbish bins and cleaned the kitchen area if you don’t want to pay 100€ fine. Not a big problem, but we didn’t know in advance.

This was our second visit to the great little resort of Samoens. The first visit was in a private Chalet (see my other reviews for more detail) the second being here. Flew in to Geneva and arranged a private transfer with Go Massif, who were very well organised and courteous on our trip down to resort (approx. 1 hour). There was 8 of us in our party which we arranged as 2 parties of 4 in 2 x 2 bedroom apartments. We e-mailed ahead to ask if we could have the apartments next door to each other with views of the mountains and large balconies if possible, this was duly arranged, so for us we were very pleased. Chalet de Layssia is very well situated, pretty much being smack bang in the middle of town, the bus stopped just outside of the complex, with a few minutes ride down to the Grand Massif Gondola station (white bus line). Our apartment was very well appointed and had everything you could really need for a weeks skiing or even for a summer holiday. Kitchen was well appointed with the usual (in-built connection oven/Fridge/Kettle/Dishwasher/Toaster and so on, but as other reviews have stated, there is nowhere to prepare the food apart from using the dining table or the electric hob when turned off! but we still managed to cook just fine when not eating out. Bedrooms were both fine and well appointed, we all slept well as the beds & lining were very comfortable, no real noise from other apartments or the road. We used the swimming pool/steam & jacuzzi along with the gym. Again all very well appointed but, none of it seems to open in the morning (I think after 10) so if you wanted to loosen up before skiing, you were out of luck. Pools and Jacuzzi were cold to lukewarm at best, but we braved it. I do feel this could have been improved upon in terms of timings and temperature! I would also like to add that the boot locker was very good and kept our boots super warm. Service wise, we didn't use it much to hardly at all, reception is open if you need them, but the reception area shuts at 8 and the area is locked, so you are then resorting to using a side door under key code. This didn't worry us, but may be an issue for others. The only small issue was check out, pretty frantic as everybody has to check out by 10 and everybody has to have an apartment inspection and inventory check, which by all accounts was slightly on the military side (ex serviceman myself!) as long as you follow the rules and leave it as you pretty much found it, I don't see an issue, again this may bother some, especially if you have had a long weeks skiing and are ready to get home. All in all I would recommend CGH and I would return, as we thought the place was well equipped, spacious as Ski accommodation goes and very close to everything without the noise. The Ski area of the Grand Massif is fantastic, with something for everybody (although the slope grading was a little out in places) and great conditions. I wouldn't be tempted to go early season, but mid Jan to the end of March seems to be the best for this area. I'd also like to mention Coco, our Ski instructor from Zigzag. Absolutely fantastic.
