The Meyerink and Harder families, January 2014.

The chalet is lovely. My family and I had a wonderful time. There is everything here to make our holiday complete.

Howe family, June 2012

From the first email enquiry I sent, you were efficient, helpful and courteous. The chalet looked gorgeous on your website and lived up to our expectations. It is the best equipped we have stayed in from kitchen to sitting room. We had a really fabulous holiday and will definitely come again and recommend you to our friends. Thank you!

Thanks Alison, Tom, Gillon and the rest of your friendly, able team for another lovely Samoens holiday. The good news for you, but bad news for us, is that we've still not yet located our dream chalet/plot of land so will have to rent for another season - so you will be seeing us again!
