“Great staff, well organized, cute apartment and good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

These little chalets are just the ticket. Clean, cute and kited out with everything you need for a stay in the mountain. The view from the balcony is snow covered mountains. You can ordered your croissants and bread at reception and collect them fresh each morning (and they are good quality).

The staff are so helpful, very unexpected for a French ski resort.

There's a beautiful walk along the river to the ski lift which takes about 10 mins or the free ski bus stops right outside if you're feeling a bit lazy. The cross country skiing track passes right outside if you are into that.

Would definitely return, maybe next time in summer.

Read reviews from people moaning about silly things, I have to say the place is good, warm, clean apartments and the staff are fine (by French standards), this isn't billed as the Ritz and its well priced for what it is...

Pool is a little small but it says in the blurb its small, the place is in a great location next to the ski bus stop and not far from town.

We were an all-male group of keen skiers/boarders and had a good experience here, we'd book again.

Access from Geneva is v quick and your'e on the Grand M in minutes from leaving the apartment

I rang 24hrs prior to arrival to advise that we would not get to the apartments until 11pm. Despite already paying in full I still had to leave Euro 300 deposit and Reception agreed to leave the apartment open for us. The whole place was in darkness, and with no directions to our apartment it and took us 25 minutes to find the correct apartment using a torch we had with us! No key was left in the apartment so we propped a chair against the door. Reception staff the next morning were totally unhelpful and rude to be blunt. The pool is more of a plunge pool with very limited space. Pillow dreadful, lumpy and well used! Wifi, although my confirmation confirmed free wifi, the answer at Reception when I quieried the Euro 20 charge was ' it is not possible'. There's limited use anyway and only in reception. Location is not great unless you have a car as it is a good 10 minutes walk from the Village with heavy food bags... I dont think so. Ski bus stop outside so that's a plus (the only one)
No Kettle in the apartment! No Microwave, limited cooking facilities. Gestapo approach on leaving as your apartment is fully inspected with a list of jobs you have to complete prior to having your Euro 300 returned. No tick sheet, no money basically. (see picture) No bread delivery either at the Weekend. In short, really dont bother. Friends stayed at La Marmotte in the Village, nice apartments and nice staff, honestly go there instead.

I have never stayed hjere before and we were a party of 13, 8 + 3.
All in all this accomodation was great, very warm and well equiped.
The bus stops right outside and drops you to the main lift in minutes.
I have read reviews mentioning that the bed were lumpy and staff not the friendliest at times.
I found this not to be true.
Beds fine and staff great.
They order your French Sticks in for you along with Pain au Chocolat so you can pick them up from reception at 8am.
The only issue I found was the queue to check in, I ,managed to get in early but people were queueing outside and there was grumpy faces.
Pool is small but it says it is but its free!
You can buy Wifi at reception andit only works there and only open at reception times.....but once this is how it was sold.
You're on Holiday, you dont need facebook.....etc
I would stay again, we were lucky and drove so got there early.
Great location, friendly staff, good bus links and great staff and village.

I have stayed at these apartments a number of time they are ok but could really do with WIFI in the apartments not just in the reception no English tv.

Pool is small and cold and only open when the reception is so use is restricted.

Pillows are in need of replacement lumpy horrible things.

We stayed at the fermes de Samoens during the early January blizzards. We didn't get much skiing in and had to spend a lot of time in our apartment. We had a 3 bed one for parents and 2 older children. There was plenty of room, kitchen was well equipped. The apartment was warm and clean. Good boot room. They didn't clear the snow off the car park and it was difficult to get the car in and out. The swimming pool is small, but there is a steam room which was nice. The wifi doesn't work well, and there are very limited times you can use it. The staff are off hand even by French standards. It really would hurt them to be a bit more welcoming which would add to the enjoyment of the place. I thought it was reasonable value. The ski bus goes from outside and was frequent. Samoans is a wonderful town, and this is a reasonable place to stay. The beds are very hard and this was an issue.
