About the owners

"We’re a family of life-long skiers who accidentally stumbled across Samoens in the summer of 2013. We immediately fell in love with the area and all it has to offer, both on the slopes and in the summer sun. We couldn’t resist the lure of Chalet Marguerite’s spectacular mountain views  while boasting a sunny and tranquil position all year round. We’ve lovingly renovated the chalet to feature all the ‘best bits’ of accommodation that we’ve stayed in over the years, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!"
