Chalet Falcon Samoens The wonderful double height ensuite master bedroom featuring a king bed, additional single, and amazing mountain views

Chalet Falcon's name was inspired from it's imposing position, grand size and elegant presentation.  This luxury chalet is located in an elevated position above Samoens overlooking the dramatic cliffs of the Criou mountain and village. Spanning a light and extremely impressive 365m2, one of the largest chalets in our portfolio, the chalet comes complete with 6 stunning ensuite bedrooms, including a spacious 2-bedroom family suite, and additional family suite with 2 separate sleeping quarters and a self contained 1 bedroom apartment on the ground floor.

The chalet offers a truly luxurious experience, including a steamy hot tub, large bedrooms with super king size beds, a log burner, two living areas, and a huge fully equipped double kitchen with range cooker and breakfast bar.  Finished to an excellent standard with a wonderful mix of French Chateau style decor and local Savoie touches, it creates a stylish and sumptuous interior, yet manages to retain a comfortable, relaxing and calm feel.  Throughout the property you will find elegant chandeliers and bed side lights, beautifully painted wardrobes and chests, plus deep comfortable sofas in the living areas.

Chalet Falcon boasts a wonderful elevated position in a quiet and tranquil location of Samoens, with truly wonderful panoramic views from every part of the chalet. Guests will enjoy looking towards the dramatic cliffs of the Criou, and admiring the birds and wildlife it presents. Despite this, the chalet remains just a 11-12 minutes' walk from Samoens village centre which offers a vast array of local shops, bars, cafes, weekly market, plus many activities such as a skating rink.  The free ski bus service is available just 300m from the chalet, with a regular service to the Grand Massif Express gondola (GME) in Samoens.

The chalet is surrounded by 2000m2 of private gardens with a flat lawned area, a huge south facing terrace, and a further covered terrace with hot tub and outside dining. All of which benefit from wonderful views and a sunny aspect. Table football is provided to offer fun activities for all ages.

A remote controlled secure garage is available, along with further parking on the private drive for several cars, while the rest of the lower floor contains a  ski/equipment storage room with ski boot dryers and a washing machine.

Chalet Falcon can also be booked as a 5 bedroom chalet sleeping 14, excluding the self contained apartment which would remain empty if the main chalet was booked. This makes Chalet Falcon ideal for a range of group sizes.

This property is privately owned and we are delighted to include it in our portfolio. It has a Sunday changeover day, however in low season and for last minute bookings, flexible arrival day and length of stay may be available. Contact us for more information.

Reviews

Chalet Falcon is very beautiful and spacious. Jacuzzi, TV lounge, table football...the children were delighted and so were we!

Peyrol, Chalet Falcon, March 2021

It was truly the loveliest chalet we have ever stayed in. It was incredibly spacious and beautifully appointed. There was loads of hot water for multiple showers etc. The boot room was very spacious. Loved both the table football.

Danby Party, Chalet Falcon, February 2018

I loved the chalet. I thought it was beautiful and well laid out. The bedrooms were spacious and it was great to enjoy the living room and TV snug. I loved the furniture which I thought gave a very individual touch. The combination of the rooms was ideal for a group of friends with kids and the table football was great fun for all. I would definitely recommend the chalet to other people. One of the nicest places I have ever stayed.

Taylor party, Chalet Falcon, February 2018

We had a fabulous time in Samoens at Chalet Falcon. The chalet has a very relaxed feel to it, lots of films to watch and lots of sociable areas to have chats. All of the utilities were very easy to use and the arrival pack was a lifesaver! We had a brilliant time, would highly recommend and would love to go back!

Eldridge party, Chalet Falcon, February 2018

Chalet Falcon is amazing. The views are stunning and the space inside is immense. It is a super comfortable chalet and the kitchen is really well kitted out with all you need to cater for 2 or 18 people in style. Samoens is a beautiful town and if you don’t want to cook it has some great restaurants which are easy to walk to for dinner.
