Chalet Foehn is a luxury 5/6 bedroom, 4 bathroom chalet with hot tub and garden.  Sleeping 13/14, the chalet has been constructed to the highest standards, offering 240m2 of spectacular living. The chalet sits in an ideal slightly elevated and peaceful position in Samoens, yet is only a snowballs throw (200m) from Samoens centre, with the free and regular ski bus stop 4 minutes walk from the chalet.  Alternatively, an easy walk of around 12mins will take you to the Grand Massif Express, and if you chose to use one of our partner rental shops, ski equipment storage is available at the top or bottom of the ski lift. This offers the perfect location for skiers and non-skiers, and for holidays throughout all seasons.  The summer swimming pools, lakes and adventure-park are all within 10 minutes’ walk of Chalet Foehn.  

Designed with families and groups in mind, Chalet Foehn is a real gem.  Modern and contemporary, with a mix of different textures and colours, it creates a light and spacious, yet wonderfully cosy atmosphere.  Enjoy luxury treats such as the hot tub set in gardens, under floor heating throughout, Satellite TV, free Wi-Fi and a snug with games and games console.

Groups of 8 or less can benefit from a small group discount of 10% off the self catered prices.  This makes Chalet Foehn ideal for a range of group sizes.

This property is privately owned and has been carefully selected to be in Alps Accommodation’s premier portfolio. It has a Sunday 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.

Description

Upon entering the property, you immediately sense the exceptionally high level of finish and furnishing.  The warm feeling beneath your feet and the rustic dresser immediately reflects the quality you will find throughout this truly luxurious chalet.  Arranged over 3 floors, the entrance level presents a useful utility room with separate washing machine and dryer and a large sink. Straight ahead you have a spacious snug room, which can have a bed added to be configured as the sixth bedroom with prior notice. Kids (and parents!) have a fantastic place to call their own with a large LCD TV, Wii, Playstation and board games. Also on the ground floor is a double ensuite bedroom, separate WC with sink, large double garage which also provides another entrance into the chalet and has two large heated cupboards for drying wet gear! The lockable garage contains plenty of storage space for outdoor wear, bikes and skis and you will also find the boot dryers/warmers here.

Rise one flight of stairs to the impressive open plan living, kitchen and dining area, which offers the height of alpine chic, boasting a staggering 60m2 of living space!  One cannot avoid being drawn to the stunning kitchen, the beautiful large dining table and the giant sofa facing towards the spectacular view from the floor to ceiling, double height windows, with sunlight flooding in. The amazing view includes La Cathédrale, Le Mont Buet, Marcelly and Le Criou – the valley’s finest peaks. Pull yourself away from that view, let the wine chill for a moment, and relax in the an equally beautiful living area with cosy log burner. An enormous, deep and comfortable leather sofa take centre stage with a large LCD TV with satellite, reminding you of the luxurious nature of this property. Moving back slightly you find the beautiful reclaimed wooden table with glass top, bouncing light from the beautiful pendant light fittings above. The table offers a convivial space for large groups to simply enjoy breakfast, or a sophisticated dinner party.

The luxurious kitchen of Chalet Foehn has been thoughtfully designed, with a crisp white gloss finish topped with endless metres of quartz stone worktops. Superbly equipped with catering for large groups in mind, you can tell that no expense has been spared. Boasting an American style fridge/freezer with ice dispenser, two large ovens, a further combination oven and microwave, and a separate and all important wine fridge!  Extras such as a coffee machine, toaster, raclette and fondue set, scales and food processor are also provided. The central island unit provides a superb work space and area to keep the chefs company, with a 5 plate ceramic hob mean cooking for a chalet of hungry mouths is a breeze.  Views are offered out to the gardens from this area and a French door leads out to the terrace area, ideal for outside dining.

Set just off from the main living/dining area is a small tranquil corner, with reading area in two comfy armchairs. A great place to open a book from the great selection available in the chalet, or simply take in the wonderful views and atmosphere of the chalet.

Chalet Foehn can be upgraded to catered, offering flexibility to suit your needs - Contact Debbie at De La Terre for a tailored quote.

Exterior

Exterior

The exterior of Chalet Foehn is as impressive as the interior. Built on a spacious plot in 2010, there is plenty of lawned space to the side of the chalet. It has a unique burnt wood exterior and was constructed by popular local artisans and tradesmen. Two south facing balconies give you plenty of choice for that morning coffee or late afternoon glass of wine in the sunshine. Should it get a little too toasty you wish to switch to the decked area at the rear of the chalet which catches the afternoon sunshine and provides the perfect place to dine outside. At the rear of a chalet is the wonderful hot tub, a great place to soothe aching muscles and take in the sunset and mountain views. At the front of the chalet you will find a large area of south facing lawn offering a great place to construct the perfect snowman or simply to relax! The chalet is also equipped with a large BBQ, providing the perfect venue for holidays throughout the year.

Location

Location

Chalet Foehn is in a prime location within the historic village of Samoëns. Its elevated position offers stunning views over Samoëns’ peaks, waterfalls, ski slopes and beyond, and yet the chalet is only a short stroll from the village centre (200m). It is a truly perfect year-round holiday destination.

In winter, the free and regular ski bus is an easy 4-minute walk away, ensuring fast access to the Grand Massif Express lift and our spectacular skiing domain. The impressive 600m2 ice skating complex is little more than a 5-minute walk from the chalet. And the historic town centre with its many shops, bars, and restaurants, tourist office, crèche, beautiful church and gardens are a mere 2 to 3-minute walk away. 

In the summer months you can access a number of fantastic facilities, all within a 10-minute walk from the chalet. There’s the lake and leisure complex, swimming pools, golf driving range, and tennis courts to name but a few. The Grand Massif Express lift also operates throughout July and August and is a short 2-minute drive from the chalet. Alternatively, it will take between 10 and 15-minutes to walk.

There is a large supermarket just a short drive or a 15-minute walk away. Here, you will also find the River Bowl bowling alley. River Bowl also has its very own restaurant and bar, and is open year round.

Samoëns is a fabulous destination no matter the time of year, and with so much to do and experience right on your doorstep, you will be hard pushed to find a better located property than Chalet Foehn.
