Reviews

We have had a wonderful stay in Samoens! The accommodation, town, resort and snow made it an ideal holiday destination for our Spring break. The apartment was so very well-equipped and met all of our requirements and was so convenient to the bus stop(s), the town and the Carrefour. The welcome pack was also very much appreciated and Tim explained everything very well on our arrival. We loved every minute of our holiday.

The Kane family, Chardons Argentes C02, March 2016

We really enjoyed our stay at Chardons Argentes C02. The apartment was large enough for all of us (four adults and a 2 year old) to relax in and was well equipped with comfortable furnishings.

The Browns, Chardons Argentes C02, March 2016

Samoens was amazing, it snowed every day! The apartment was lovely, and had everything we needed, and we would definitely recommend it to our friends. We are already looking to come back next year.

Howells family, Chardons Argentes C2, January 2016

We would just like to say we have had a wonderful time in Samoens. Your apartment has been brilliant and we have had a great time.

Moralee family, Chardons Argentes C2, September 2015

We had a wonderful family holiday in Samoens. So much to do for all of the family, in a beautiful location. We went up cable cars and chair lifts, did walks at Sixt Fer a Cheval (stunning), hired bikes, did horse rides, filled a lake with golf balls, dined out……The apartment was perfect for us, with a fully equipped kitchen and very comfortable beds. All of us have voted it our best family holiday ever. We will be recommending your apartment and Samoëns to all of our friends.

The Barons, Chardons Argentes C02, August 2015

We had a lovely week in Samoens staying at Chardons Argentes C2 The apartment was in an ideal location and had everything we needed. Having a garden was great for the children as was the on-site swimming pool. We were lucky enough to have fantastic weather which just topped off a great holiday. Hopefully we'll be back some time in the future.

The Bashfords, Chardons Argentes C02,  August 2015

Wow, we have had a truly amazing time and have fallen in love with Samoens.  Your apartment is beautiful and so well equipped....I was delighted to find sharp knives as I had forgotten to bring mine !! We have done loads, I even went paragliding yesterday...amazing.  We have cycled, walked, run, eaten well, swam and this afternoon we are all going rafting!

Coates family, Chardons Argentes C02, August 2014

TRULY SUPERB!! We've been to Samoens many times over the years but this is by far the best apartment we've stayed in! The owners were extremely helpful in sorting out our booking, and they've obviously taken great care in furnishing and equipping the apartment so that it's a real 'home-from-home' . Theres plenty of nice little touches, and everything is of really good quality. We've also not stayed anywhere with a swimming pool before, so found that a really nice thing to have access to, particularly as it is very tastefully done and spotlessly clean.

About the owner

Originally from Scotland and England, we have been working in aid and development for the last 20 years in Pakistan, Malawi, Nepal, Bangladesh, Zambia, briefly Brussels and now Kenya.  We first came to Samoens 6 years ago to meet old friends for our first skiing holiday and kept coming back.  Samoens is a lovely, friendly village and the physical environment is wonderful in winter and summer.  It has also been an easy place for us to get to wherever we were based as it’s so close to Geneva.  As a result, we finally took the plunge this year and bought this apartment.  It will be our base for 2-4 weeks a year for spending time with our friends (and, increasingly, their friends!), skiing (kids are making great progress, adults happy if remain upright), enjoying a ‘real’ winter (skating, seeing our breath in the air, gluhwein and après ski) and walking, cycling and exploring the area in the summertime.  Our children love the freedom they have here to roam around and we all really like the actual complex, especially the pool and our big garden space.   We hope you enjoy being in Samoens as much as we do!
