Chalet Maya - Samoens

Luxurious chalet, fully equipped and 100m from the ski lift and piste         (Français)

Chalet Maya Samoens

Chalet Maya is a newly constructed, luxurious 7 bedroom, 5 bathroom chalet with hot tub.  Sleeping to 15 people in an impressive 280m2 of stylish living, the chalet is situated in a highly sought after location, just 100m from Samoens’ original ski lift and ski pistes of Vercland. This stunning Alpine chalet features a spacious open plan layout including a living area with log burner, dining area, and an impressive fully equipped kitchen. Stunning views towards the dramatic peak of the Criou can be enjoyed from a secluded garden with large bubbly hot tub, and two separate balconies.

The chalet offers the perfect peaceful, yet convenient alpine setting, for holidays throughout the year. In winter, the gondola 100m from the chalet, chosen by many locals for its’ limited queues, takes you directly to Samoens 1600, ensuring instant access to the Grand Massif ski area. Depending on snow conditions, you can ski the red or black run down to within 100m of the chalet.  These runs have been improved with the addition of plenty of new snow cannons, or alternatively you take the ski lift down.  Our recommended ski hire shop, located at Samoens 1600 is right opposite the top of the lift, has free ski lockers, so there is no need to take skis and boots back to the chalet if you prefer.

For summer holidays, the chalet has direct access onto stunning alpine walking trails, including a route to the gondola lift open in July and August, taking 20 minutes and into Samoens, approximately 25 minutes. Mountain bikers can access numerous popular routes at ease from Chalet Maya.

This property is privately owned and has been carefully selected to be in Alps Accommodation’s premier portfolio. It has a Friday changeover day, however in low season and for last minute bookings, flexible arrival day and length of stay may be available. Contact us for more information.

Chalet Maya Samoens Exterior

Chalet Maya is located in the peaceful hamlet of Vercland, just a 2.6 km drive from the centre of Samoëns. Conveniently located such a short distance from the village, and yet perched in an enviable position allowing direct access to the mountain, Chalet Maya is the perfect year-round holiday destination.

Situated just a short walk from the chalet’s front door is the Vercland telecabine, which transports you to Samoëns 1600 and access to our impressive ski domain in a matter of minutes. Or if you prefer, catch the free ski bus to Samoëns and Morillon villages. Buses operate during the day and early evening and leave from in front of the Vercland telecabine. In Vercland itself there is an excellent bar / restaurant. A local's favourite, La Reposette is situated just 100m from Chalet Maya and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner by the cosy log fire. 

In summer, the chalet offers direct access to a number of hiking and mountain bike trails. Road cyclists may also enjoy the tough and winding climb from the chalet up to Samoëns 1600, or cruise down into the village and across to the opposite side of the valley to attempt the famous Col de Joux Plane. The Grand Massif Express lift is just a 20-minute walk from the chalet. As well as operating throughout the winter season, the Grand Massif Express lift is open during July and August, providing guests with access to higher mountain trails for both walking and biking.

Samoëns is approximately a 20 to 25-minute walk from the chalet in summer. Samoëns village boasts many shops, bars, restaurants, ice rink (winter only), and the famous Jaÿsinia Gardens. There is also a wonderful medieval town square with its beautiful church, ancient buildings and bustling Wednesday morning market. 

Chalet Maya is also just a 5-minute drive from the village of Morillon. There, you will find even more shops and restaurants and the beautiful Lac Bleu, which boasts an array of leisure facilities.

" Property fantastic and to a very high standard, we loved our stay" Smith group, Chalet Maya, Jan 2015

"We have had a great time, and the chalet exceeded our expectations. Your team were very professional and thorough, and I have nothing but praise for the way they handled the introduction etc. I must admit to having some reservations after I booked it about the location (it being not actually in the village), however it proved to be absolutely excellent with the queue free lift, great snow and the opening of La Reposette which was the icing on the cake. It’s a great bar, the food was top notch and a very memorable New Year was had there."  Powell group, Chalet Maya, Jan 2014
