We stayed with Absolute Alpine for a weeks skiing previously and came back in the summer for a friends wedding in Samoens.
We had such an amazing stay with the owners Sam and Steve in the smaller chalet Petit Ourse last time, that we asked to come back and stay in the larger Grand Ourse for our summer visit. And we weren't disappointed. The chalet is immaculate, wired for sound, spacious, full of little touches like big fluffy towels and toiletries - and a fully stocked honesty bar that puts you right at home!!
The hot tub was just as much fun to sit in during the twighlight hours of the evening and the views simply stunning.
There's a bit of a trek up the hill to get to the chalet, but the elevation gives you the great views over the pretty streets in the village.
We'll be back, time and again...maybe taking in some parascending this time around.
