The Apartment Moccand is very well equipped and close to the center. The photos correspond perfectly to reality.

Family Averty, Apartment Moccand, July 2021

A very nice apartment in a chalet, the apartment is very spacious. We stayed with 3 families. It is super well located - everything is close by. The spa is huge! The apartment is tastefully decorated, there are many amenities and it's very nice! The sheltered parking space, the barbecue, the garden and the balcony are a real plus! The apartment has a lot of games for the children which is great for families. Thanks to Katrin and Tom.

Lepillier Family, Apartment Moccand, June 2021

Bartoletti Family, Apt Moccand, August 2020

Everything is perfect, don't change a thing. As for the stay, it was really very pleasant, the setting of the chalet is most pleasant. The amenities of the chalet and its comfort help to have a carefree stay focused solely on leisure, discovery and sport. Excellent services!

Gerriet family, Moccand Apartment, July 2020

The property managers were very welcoming and responsive to the questions posed by sms and mail. Very nice location and view from the terrace. The reality is consistent with the photos, very nice apartment!

Bellili Family, Apartment Moccand, Septembre 2019

What a fabulous holiday we had in Samoens. The accommodation was great; Liam and Ollie were fantastic, friendly and efficient and everything was just what we hoped for. I’ll certainly recommend you to friends and book again if we ever come back to the area.

Arthurson Family, Apartment Moccand, July 2018

We had a lovely week in Samoens.  We were very comfortable in the chalet and thought it was great value for money.   It was such a cosy, sweet chalet, comfortable beds, nice bedrooms and very nice bathrooms.  Not to forget the well-furnished kitchen. The town was lovely too and the skiing was perfect. Gabby and Freddy were so nice and helpful and were great hosts.  Although we didn’t really need them during the week it was nice to know they were at the end of the ‘phone should we have needed any help or information. So we were very happy with our stay and just sad that the week passed by so quickly, the time flew and we didn’t feel ready to come home.  We had a lovely holiday and wouldn’t hesitate to book through you again!

Gourlay party, Apartment Moccand, January 2018

We have had a brilliant 2 weeks of skiing for my 50th birthday. Lots of drinking, eating, laughing, time spent in hot tub and celebrating. Thank you!

Collison party, Chalet and Apartment Moccand, April 2017

Samuels - Apartment Moccand, February 2014

Wonderful apartment, wonderful hospitality, wonderful friends, wonderful time.  I will never forget that "A good place to hide" began its life from our first stay here in 2010.  So thanks Tom and Ali for your warm welcome and providing such a great pad!

Grose - Apartment Moccand, September 2014

Simon, Dee, Lydia, Jake and Lotty - Apartment Moccand, December 2010

Very clean on arrival, beds very comfortable. Hot tub superb. Both apartment and the Mazot lovely. Good that we had enough crockery and cutlery as we all ate together each evening (10 altogether). We’ve had a superb holiday, thank you!

Sly - Apartment Moccand, April 2011 

We had a lovely time in Samoens. Apartment Moccand was perfect for us. The location was great , the apartment was clean, light and comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen and lovely bathrooms.

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!
