Apartment La Bottiere Samoens Main image

Apartment La Bottiere is a light and contemporary 3 bedroom apartment, located perfectly for year round holidays in Samoens. The apartment offers 71m2 (8m2 below 1.8m high) of split level accommodation, cleverly laid out with two separate living areas to provide a bright and airy feel. The apartment offers an attractive mix of contrasting colours and textures, combining wood effect units and neutral tone tiles, with dark stone sinks and work surfaces. The apartment enjoys a particularly uplifting feel, thanks to a double height living space and its south facing orientation. 

Light floods in through numerous windows and French doors, enjoy day long sunshine from a large 10m2 balcony. A dining table and comfortable seating provide the perfect vantage point as the mountains glow pink and the sun sets behind dramatic cliffs. Surrounding the apartment building is a communal lawned area which is ideal for kids to play and adults to relaxing equally!

Apartment La Bottiere has a fabulous location, almost half way between the village and the main ski lift, yet at the same time occupying a peaceful position. The Grand Massif Express gondola is a flat and easy 6 minute walk, or the ski bus stops 250m away.  Samoens village centre and all its amenities are just 3 minutes' walk. Samoens' weekly market, and the ice rink are a mere 150m away, while the Tourist Office is only 250m. During the warmer months, a walk of around 500m will take you to Samoens’ popular outdoor swimming pool (open during summer), beautiful lakes, tennis courts, children's activity park and many nearby activities.

The village was lovely, the property was excellent. The skiing was fantastic. We were lucky with the weather!

Dobbie, Apartment la Bottiere, March 2023

Really memorable, fantastic family holiday. Lovely, light, well appointed and equipped chalet in a great location; quiet but close enough to the centre of Samoens. Would definitely recommend both the chalet and the Haute Savioe area - stunning!

Smithson Family, Apartment la Bottiere, August 2022

KPS was great. A warm, comfortable stay with great views and excellent skiing. Merci.

About the owner

We are Andy and Sarah, a market researcher and cartoonist. We found that skiing is a great way to keep our three boys coming on family holidays as they grew older. We discovered Samoens on a friend's recommendation and now love summer in the mountains, as well as it's wonderful winter hospitality. Samoens combines a small town feel with extensive skiing and every year we seem add another activity to our time here.
