Location

Location

Apartment Le Baptieux is located in the peaceful hamlet of Les Vallons, surrounded by some of the valley’s finest traditional Savoyard architecture. Nature lies at your doorstep in this calm, unspoilt location. And yet the apartment remains only a matter of minutes from all the convenience of Samoëns village, making it an ideal year-round holiday destination.

In winter, catch the free and regular ski bus, just 100m away, and reach the Grand Massif Express lift in a few short minutes. From there it is an 8-minute gondola ride to Samoëns 1600, gateway to the vast Grand Massif ski area. Another favourite winter pastime is ice-skating and just a few minutes' walk from the town centre is Samoëns’ impressive 600m2 ice-skating rink.

Samoëns village is a 10 minute flat walk from the chalet (1KM). Stop for a drink or snack at one of Samoëns' many bars, cafes or restaurants, stroll through the picturesque botanical gardens, or admire the stonework of the medieval buildings in the historic town square.

Le Baptieux is also the perfect base for summer holidays. The chalet sits near the foot of the impressive Criou mountain (a 7-hour round trip hike!), and a number of other fantastic hiking and biking trails can also be accessed direct from your door. Or enjoy a stroll through the sleepy hamlet of Les Vallons with its ancient chapel, water fountains, authentic architecture and beautifully restored farmhouses.

The Grand Massif Express lift is also open in summer (July and August), providing guests with access to a number of higher mountain walking trails, world-class downhill mountain biking terrain, and of course beautiful Alpine scenery. The Grand Massif Express lift is only a few minutes’ drive from Le Baptieux and has ample free parking. Alternatively, you can walk to the lift via the scenic riverside path, which takes around 12-minutes.

About the owners

We live in Oxford with our two sons. We have been holidaying in Samoens since 2005 at all times of year and really love the area. We enjoy skiing and snowshoeing in the winter and cycling and hiking the rest of the year. Le Baptieux was built in 1880 and was a functional farm until around 1980. Since that time it provided a happy family home. We renovated Apartment Le Baptieux in 2015. A lot of thought and energy has gone into the renovations and the interior design, which hopefully future generations and guests will enjoy! Diane and Paul
