Had a wonderful holiday in Samoens and these apartments were great. Just over 1 hour from Geneva. We went as 2 couples and the layout worked out really well for us. There was plenty of space and storage. (and hot water) This is the first holiday I have come back with more clean clothes than dirty. The heated towel rails are amazing and dry your clothes very quickly. We also discovered if you leave you ski pants on the bedroom floor they are nice and warm to pop on in the morning thanks to the under floor heating.
We only ate out once (make sure you book as we tried about 5 restaurants and they were all full). However we felt we did not really need to eat out as cooking and shopping was quite easy. The bus stop is just down the road and lucky for us our friends hired skis/snowboards at the bottom of the lift so we able to leave our skis there as well.
The lifts to Flaine can shut due to high winds, this happened twice and when the lifts do open after a week like this it can get quite busy getting to Flaine and back. So leave plenty of time with the lifts to get back across. The resort requires a little more patience then other ski resorts due to the fact you need to get buses and lifts before you even start your day skiing this is the same with coming back as you cannot ski down into the resort. It is a very quiet resort and a few or the bars were shutting at 9.30pm!!!!
All in all a great holiday, the apartments are kept lovely and clean and Kate (owner) gives you all the information you need before you go.
