The superbly located Chalet Esse is situated in a quiet neighbourhood a mere 5-minute walk from the village of Samoëns. Its peaceful and yet convenient setting make it an ideal choice for year-round, alpine holidays.
The chalet’s vast lawn and proximity to the river and nearby forest is every nature lover’s delight, and yet you are never far from the convenience of village life. An easy, 5-minute walk leads you straight into Samoëns with its many shops, bars, restaurants, beautiful gardens, and medieval square, which features a stunning church, ancient buildings and of course the bustling Wednesday morning market.
During the winter months the stop for the free ski bus is just 50m away, guaranteeing quick and easy access to the main Grand Massif Express lift and our impressive skiing domain. Another favourite winter activity is ice skating and the newly built 600m2 ice skating complex is only about a 10-minute walk from the chalet. When snow coverage permits, the vast Nordic ski domain can be accessed almost directly from the chalet.
In the summer months, guests can access a number of walking and biking trails immediately upon exiting the chalet. Take a 5-minute stroll along the nearby Clevieux stream and find yourself on the banks of the Giffre river. Or explore one of the many nearby forest trails. The Grand Massif Express lift also operates throughout July and August, giving guests access to even more hiking and biking options.
No car is required at this chalet due to its convenient location, but if you do plan to drive be sure to take a trip to Sixt, just 10-minutes up the valley. Here, you can immerse yourself in the spectacular scenery of the Cirque du Fer a Cheval, a national park renowned for its many waterfalls and hikes.
