Bordeaux family, Chardons Argentes F8, August 2023

"Thank you for this stay in a beautiful place. The flat is well located, well decorated and has a very nice balcony.  We appreciated the little touches on departure (the carton of milk, orange juice, wine, etc.).  A lovely summer to you"

Courtin family, Chardons Argentes F8, July 2023

"We spent a wonderful Christmas week in Samoens with Alps Accommodation . The property was well presented, ample space and very good amenities and facilities. It is nice walking distance into Samoens where there are daily events during Christmas week. Will definitely book again. Many thanks Alps accommodation."

Hayes, Chardons Argentes F8, Christmas 2022

"It was perfect!"

Hug, Chardons Argentes F8, August 2021

"Our second stay in an Alps Accommodation chalet in Samoens - this chalet was perfect for our family (with 2 kids aged 6&9), the bedrooms were so comfortable; the whole chalet was really well equipped; the balcony and its views were lovely; and the pool was spotlessly clean and added an extra activity each day (just to burn few more calories!) Also the location was great, being easy to wonder into town and to the Samoens lakes, as well as accessing bike rides. We loved this chalet - thank you!"

Watson Family, Chardons Argentes F8, July 2019

About the owner

We bought our apartment in Samoens after staying in a nearby town, and coming for a walk on the slopes of le Criou on a really hot day. The walk was stunning, the air filled with butterflies, and it is now known in our family as ‘the butterfly walk’. We went into Samoens for a delicious ice cream to cool down and immediately fell in love with the town. We all love the winter in Samoens, but I love the summer best, with the alpine flowers and clear air. I love the quiet location and our view over the meadow. We are a family of five and life in Scotland is hectic. Staying In Samoens is as busy or quiet as we want, and we miss it when we are away.
