We are just returning from a week in a two bed apartment, sleeps 4 to 6 with a sofa bed in the lounge. Was great for 4, might be crowded for 6 adults. Kitchen included a toaster, kettle, coffee machine which takes senseo pods, bring your own cafetiere if you don't hand blender, whisk, salt and pepper pots (empty), and a cleaning pack which had enough washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets for the week, two tea towels and a dishcloth and scourer. Not enough loo roll for the week so bring an extra roll if you're driving. It was nice to have two bathrooms and a separate loo. Both had extremely hot towel rails, be careful of drying clothes on them on full power, as coating on ski gloves etc can melt! The lounge and spa areas are great and staff are happy for you to bring a drink and crisps down to the lounge to chill while playing snooker. You can borrow a DVD player for the week for free, as well as raclette , bring dvds from home though since there wasn't much choice in English. Underground parking is great, you can park right outside whichever block you're in to access ski locker and lift to apartment. Two minute drive to free parking at base of cable car, we were there Easter week and there was always space. For food, it's worth stocking up at the Carrefour in Cluses if you drive, much cheaper than Samoens, but the local Sherpa is a two minute walk and well stocked if not. Samoens is a really pretty alpine village, lovely in both summer and winter. We only ate out once because we were content to stay in and chill by the pool then lounge after a day on the slopes, but there's a good choice of restaurants, albeit expensive. Brasserie le savoie on the main square serves a good selection of crepes, omelette, burgers, steak frites etc very quickly and efficiently and does a wicked Irish coffee. Next door to the boulangerie Tiffanie in the centre is a cheese and ham shop which will prepare you a platter for the raclette or fondue for 10 euros per person. We ordered for three people and couldn't finish it between four. Really nice apartments, hard to beat in a ski resort.
