Ecrins 18A is ideally located. Offering great convenience to guests and yet peaceful in its surrounds, this apartment is the ideal destination for year-round holidays to the Alps.
Ecrins 18A is only 50m from Samoëns’ village centre, with its many shops, bars, restaurants, the beautiful botanical gardens, and picturesque medieval town square. Here, you can admire the stunning church that features original 13th and 15th century stonework, or wander around the bustling Wednesday morning market.
In the winter, it will take only 10-minutes to walk from the apartment to the main Grand Massif Express lift, which allows access to our impressive skiing domain. Alternatively, jump on the free and regular ski bus that leaves from the stop just 150m away and will have you to the lifts in 2-minutes. Or for a novel experience during the peak season, catch the Septi-train which stops only 50m away, taking you to the ski lift! It leaves from just off the main square. Another favourite winter activity is ice-skating and Samoëns’ newly built 600m2 ice skating complex is little more than a 5-minute walk from the apartment.
In the summer, a number of great alpine walking and mountain bike trails can be accessed within minutes of the apartment. And road cyclists can attempt the famous Col de Joux Plane climb, which starts just through the square, on the other side of the village. The Grand Massif Express lift also operates throughout July and August, allowing guests easy access to the higher mountain trails and downhill mountain biking terrain.
We also have a number of other apartments in the same development. This is ideal for large groups or families travelling together and who are looking for multiple accommodations in the one convenient location. Be sure to take a look at: 11B (2-bedroom), 9C (2-bedroom), 15C (3-bedroom), and A23 (4-bedroom).
