We've just enjoyed an amazing few days staying in La Grande Ourse with family and friends and I can highly recommend the chalet, Absolute Alpine and Samoens itself.
The chalet is beautiful and felt like a real home away from home. Some luxury chalets can feel over worked but the facilities and the support from Sam and Steve (the people behind Absolute Alpine) were first class.
My wife and I slept in the en suite Cerise room, on the lower floor, while our son slept in Chocolat (he liked that!) next door. The Chocolat room actually has four beds in two bunks so perfect for groups of kids and/or adults.
Other people have mentioned the honest bar and hot tub (what an amazing view) but on practical level and being a parent, the two washing machines and two tumble dryers were also very useful.
I'm guessing if you're reading this you're already considering the region - what I would say is the Alps in the summer are amazing. I've skied in the area before but it's an amazing in the summer too.
I'm sure we'll back sometime soon and I'd have no hesitation booking with Absolute Alpine again.More
