“Hugely accommodating- couldn't do enough for us.”
Reviewed 3 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

It's a great chalet in an excellent location near ski rental and slopes. Purechalets could not have been warmer or more friendly, going above and beyond to ensure we had everything that we needed. Their knowledge and tips came in real handy during a week of very heavy snow. Food was good and we were left to our own devices all hours of the morning without complaint.

Great for a large group whether you are looking for a relaxing family stay or a few heavy nights.

“good location”
Reviewed 6 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed in the chalet as a group of 14, and found the chalet to meet our needs. It is close to the villiage centre and all of the amenities, and was well equipped. Aspects of the chalet were looking a little tired, but the owners were more than helpful, even giving us a hand with the shopping !!
The villiage of Samoen is a great base to tour the area from, with Geneva, Mont Blanc close by, and the local Grand Massif area is quite stunning in summer time.

Management Response
8 Sep 2014
Thank you for your feedback.

Chalet Chez Bobeau is not a new chalet but we feel that adds to it's character and charm. We always strive to keep our chalet up to date. For example, this year the chalet has beautiful new solid wood flooring in all the living areas and new tiling in some of the bathrooms to maintain a more modern and comfortable feel.
Unfortunately, you visited at the end of a long summer and there was a small amount of wear and tear to the chalet which we decided would be better to fix at the end of the season rather than disrupt your week.

Needless to say, this will all be fixed for the winter season along with other improvements which we make in the autumn.

We apologise for any inconvenience that may have been caused.

We're glad that you had a good time, regardless, and that you would recommend us to a friend.

We hope to see you back in the future to prove that our chalet and fantastic service really is worthy of all our 5 star reviews.

“great service in a perfect location”

We spent a wonderful week at "chez Bobeau". The Chalet is ideally located, close to ski lifts, parks and the historical village center. Makes it easy for children who can do everything by foot.
The catering service was excellent, and the staff both friendly and discrete. Liz and Andy were extremely charming hosts, reliable and on time for all pick up services.
We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the skiing grand massif has to offer, proper challenging ski with decent reds and charming blues in the midst of the forest.
So all in all a great week of ski on the slopes and full relaxation at the chalet.

“Fantastic for friends with families”
Reviewed 8 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We have just come back from an amazing week staying at Chez Bobeau. The service was first class and food top notch - nothing was a problem and it made for a wonderfully relaxing holiday. The chalet is perfect for families as the
ski shop and lifts are so close it took minutes to get home after a day of skiing. The local park and the village were close by so there were lots of options to entertain the children outside as well as in the chalet. Liz and Andy made great hosts and their local knowledge invaluable. Our two chalet girls Davina
and Jess were brilliant and a big hit with the kids.
We loved loved loved it!

“Wonderful Chalet, and Wonderful Staff”
Reviewed 28 March 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We stayed in Chalet Chez BoBeau Jan 2014, and absolutely loved the place!.
This is a large chalet, which also has a small apartment downstairs where the owners live (Andy & LIz). There are 8 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, so pretty much everyone has their own private facilities. The property is fantastic, and decorated and furnished to a very high standard. a complete contrast to the cramped chalet (cabin) with wafer thin walls that we stayed in La Tania last year. My wife and I were in one of the bedroom on the top floor with slightly reduced head height in some ares, but this was not an issue as there was loads of space. Other nice touches were plenty of power points, and a radiator, and heated towel rail in the en suite shower room. Our bed was a large double, and there were plenty of pillows, towels, duvets, etc. I did manage to look in most of the other bedrooms when we arrived and would say that all the rooms were of a similar size and standard.
The lounge and dining area are huge, and can easily accommodate large groups. There is also a honesty bar which is a nice touch.
Downstairs there is also a games room which is great. It has a good quality and full sized pool table, and fuzbol table.
Outside is 7 person hot tub, which was also very welcoming.

Andy and Liz are the owners of the company ( they have 2 more properties in Samoens), and are always on hand to help out if needed, and this years chalet hosts are Joe and Davina. What a great service they gave! Every evening meal was delicious, and no one went hungry, the breakfasts were perfect, with a hot option every day, and freshly baked pastries. Cakes and biscuits were always eaten up, so that must be a good sign! We had a few members of our group with quite specific dietary requirements, and these were dealt with easily by Joe and Davina, with no fuss at all.

The chalet is located a flat 5 minute walk from the Grand Massif Express. Those who hired equipment during the week used the company next to the GME, which meant that all of us could store our skis and boots there, so this worked out great. I was a little worried how this would work out with the group, as last year is was pretty much ski in/out. I needn’t have! Walking 5 minutes without ski boots is no problem, and the storage in the ski shop had great boot driers so they were always warm. From leaving the chalet, we could be on the Gondola in 10 mins, and it opened 15 minutes earlier that the rest of the area, so you could still make first lift in Samoens 1600. Turns out that quite a lot of our group also enjoyed the fact that you had to take the Gondola down. It meant that they could relax with a drink before getting on, and not have to worry about more skiing. Personally I always like to ski to the end though.

Overall we could not have asked for more, and anyone booking to stay here will not be disappointed with either the property or the service. Samoens is a lovely village too, a far cry from some ugly ski resorts!

“Fabulous chalet, wonderful hospitality with ideal location”
Reviewed 17 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We were a group of five families with children ranging from 3 to 9 years. Liz, Andy and their wonderful team made our stay easy offering useful information, doing whatever possible to meet our needs and even serving two sittings at dinner allowing us to get the children into bed so we were able to relax.
Food was fantastic, rooms very comfortable and playroom and bar just made it a little more special.
Ease of short walk to ski hire shop right by main gondola made access to the slopes with little ones very do able.
Would definitely recommend and hope to be back on day.

“Stunning chalet, super location, excellent service”
Reviewed 18 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

20 of us, all adults, stayed in Chez Bobeau and had a fantastic time. The chalet was comfortable, well designed and spacious, with a great games room, steaming hot tub, and reasonable bar. The service and food was excellent and nothing was left desired. Andy and Liz were very hospitable and their team looked after us very well. To top it off the location near the lift was extremely convenient. A top holiday. We will return.
