The Bells, Hoppers and Sturgeons, Chalet and Apartment Moccand, January 2018

Chalet Moccand was the perfect place for us in a fab location, with the village being just a few minutes’ walk from the chalet. It is beautifully decorated and there was ample room for 10 fitness enthusiasts wh came to Samoens especially for the Samoens Trail Tour. The rooms offered a variety of sleeping options from doubles to twins, to bunk beds. The bathrooms are finished to a high spec and were in perfect keeping with the style of the property. The kitchen offered great space and facilities (including double ovens), to prepare a mighty feast. Even with 10 of us sorting our race supplies in the morning there was still plenty of room. The dining area was huge, boasting a beautiful rustic table, as was the living area, furnished with leather sofas, large cozy blankets, a flat screen TV and of course the fireplace forming the heart of this perfect dwelling. We all loved the sunny garden and huge hot tub, it was a home-from-home with very warm, welcoming and knowledgeable staff. We will be visiting again. If you're looking for a chalet in Samoens this is the place to come.

About the Owner

We found Samoens in 2016, when we were looking to buy an apartment in Haute Savoie, and immediately fell for its charms and the excellent range of outdoor activities year-round. This year we have taken over as the owners of Chalet Moccand and the Mazot, and are very excited to share these beautifully renovated properties with our guests. Samoens is a place we find it very easy to relax in, and we aim to help all guests do the same!
