Apartment Frahans boats a truly ideal location for holidays in Samoëns at any time of the year.

A ski bus stop is located right outside the apartment. The free and efficient service provides transport to the Grand Massif Express lift and access to our impressive skiing domain during the winter months. The town’s impressive, competition standard ice skating complex is also only a few hundred metres from the apartment. Enjoy another favourite winter pastime and hit the ice, or catch one of the regular ice hockey matches featuring Samoëns' very own team,'Les Lynx'!

In the summer months, a 5-minute, flat walk takes guests to Samoëns' outdoor swimming pool with adjacent lakes, tennis courts, adventure park, golf driving range, horse riding, parapenting and much more. The Grand Massif Express lift is also open throughout July and August, providing guests with access to a number of alpine, walking trails, some excellent downhill mountain biking terrain, and of course the stunning scenery of the mountains in summer. During summer, it will take guests little more than 5-minutes to walk to the Grand Massif Express lift. Alternatively, it is a mere 2-minute drive away and there is ample free parking. 

The apartment finds itself less than a 2-minute walk from the historic village centre with the nearest restaurants, bars and shops just 100m away. There is also a large supermarket just a short drive or a flat, 10 to 15-minute walk away.

We had a lovely week in Samoens and Apartment Frahans has been a perfect base. Thank you to Nicky and Tim for your help as property managers. The DVDs have come in very useful for post-skiing relaxation. Wishing everyone else fun in Samoens too!

Apartment Frahans, Winter 2020

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your apartment. It was a lovely, lovely place. We can't believe how many activities there are to do. We've been rock climbing, white water rafting, walking, parapenting, high-wiring, swimming and more! We must come back, what a great place!

The Browns, August 2019, Apartment Frahans

We had a wonderful week in your very comfortable apartment! We liked the space, the layout as well as the decoration. Everything was perfect. Our little one (3 years old) appreciated the books, and the bunk bed area which was her little home. Thank you to Tim for his welcome and for all the little extra touches.

Patrick, February 2019, Apartment Frahans

As regular visitors, this is a great apartment. It's location is perfect for the restaurants and shops. The outside bus stop goes straight  down to the cable car. Spacious and well equipped it is an ideal for a winter or summer holiday.

Apartment Frahans, August 2018

Thanks for a great week. The apartment was excellent, with everything we needed, and the snow was brilliant for April.

Devereux group, Apartment Frahans, April 2018

We really enjoyed our stay at Apartment Frahans. My son is 4 and he loved all the toys, books, puzzles and the wall map! We had a wonderful time. We can see that you (the owners) have spent wonderful holidays there as a family.

Kohary family, Apartment Frahans, February 2018

We had a great holiday in this lovely apartment and enjoyed the fantastic location, close to the village and near to the ski bus. Thank you.

Fairbrother family, Apartment Frahans, February 2018

We had a lovely holiday and Les Frahans was very comfortable, well-equipped and also well-located in Samoens.

Potter family, Apartment Frahans, April 2016

We had a great time. We loved your apartment, it is very well equipped with quality equipment.

Erwood family, Apartment Frahans, February 2016

We very much enjoyed our stay and the apartment proved to be very much to our satisfaction. Both the check-in and the check-out were great and Tim left us completely informed.

Wemekamp family, Apartment Frahans, January 2016

The apartment was lovely, Mrs Hunt has very good taste, well appointed with everything you could need, including a ham slicer!! My children particularly liked the outdoor bar and bell and took it in turn to be publicans. The beds were comfortable and my oldest slept brilliantly in the bunk bed cabin. Samoens is beautiful, very handy being flat, having no ski run down was not the inconvenience I thought it would be. We plan to return next year and will book imminently.

Lewis, Apartment Frahans, February 2014.

Alps Accommodation offers a very comprehensive service. Your excellent website meant we were able to book everything required with ease. Staff answered e.mails quickly and provided all the information we required. Booking transfers, accommodation, food, lift passes, ski school from your website ourselves made the holiday good value for money. The accommodation, apartment Frahans was perfect for our requirements, spacious, open plan, ski bus outside the door and only minutes away from the town centre, we loved Samoens. The icing on the cake was the catering by Mountain Kitchen, breakfast delivered every morning, the addition of ham and cheese meant that lunch was also taken care of and 3 course dinners every evening, beautifully cooked and presented. We had a great time. Thank you for your great service.

The Birch and Rowley families, Apartment Frahans, December 2012.

First class accommodation, lots of space and cooking facilities and excellent selection of DVDs and games. Easily the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in while skiing.

Bourke, Apartment Frahans, Jan 2012 

The apartment is lovely, well appointed with everything we needed. Really impressed that the shower curtain actually stops the water from hitting the floor!! It feels like being in someone’s home with all the food jars and children’s toys- I like that, small comforts.

Fisher, Apartment Frahans, March 2011 

Great selection of DVD’s. Very comfortable and equipped to a high standard and quality. Paul was really friendly and helpful and had some good advice. Website was useful to help us plan the holiday and the welcome pack was great. Restaurant guide very useful!
