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.

A dining table and comfortable seating provide the perfect vantage point as the mountains glow pink and the sun sets behind dramatic cliffs.

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.
