Fantastic hospitality, great comfort and excellent, creative cooking, also for non-meat eaters ! Lovely unspoilt location with great views run by perfect hosts, who really make you feel welcome and at home. Already planning our next (summer) visit. Rob and Vicky, see you soon, we hope.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great

Had a fantastic long weekend skiing here; Vicky and Rob were great hosts; food was excellent and the skiing area has plenty of variety. The chalet is very luxurious and a combination of boot warmers; hot tub; sauna and en-suite bathrooms means you have everything you could ask for. Would thoroughly recommend a visit; would have spent far longer if I could.

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...
