Chalets in Samoëns
Samoens is known to be the only ski resort that is within a recognised national heritage site. A lovely picturesque village especially in the winter, Samoens is full of charm and character. Out of all the ski accommodation options available, chalets are arguably the most charismatic and most favourable option for visitors who are in search of a quintessential ski holiday experience. The experience for some is never complete without being within the thick stone walls and underneath the large wood beams (most likely from the Savoie woodlands) of a chalet. They have just that little bit more appeal with their character and especially in a lovely village like Samoens, they elicit an almost pictorial chocolate-box look.
Chalets are the perfect option for large travelling groups of family or group of friends who want to have privacy and flexibility on their stay. They are usually self-catered and the privacy of the chalets can often give off the home away from home feeling that guests often find relaxing.
