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 towering cliffs of the Criou mountain and village. Spanning a light and extremely impressive 300m2, one of the largest chalets in our portfolio, the chalet comes complete with 5 stunning ensuite bedrooms, including a spacious 2-bedroom family suite, and additional family suite with separate sleeping quarters.

Chalet Falcon features a private 6x7m swimming pool, available in summer only (please contact us for the exact dates outside July and August). The pool is heated by an environmentally friendly air source heat pump to a comfortable 28oC.

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 both living areas.

The chalet has been praised for it's environmentally friendly features, with beautiful stone tiles heated by a geo-thermic heating system, while extra thick insulation ensures a cosy stay. Additionally, a huge rainwater collection system is used for the toilets and to water the gardens.

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 short 11-12 minute walk down to Samoens village centre which offers a vast array of local shops, bars, cafes, weekly market, plus many activities such as a skating rink.  There is a free service just 300m from the chalet, with a regular service to the Grand Massif Express gondola (GME) in Samoens. Due to the steep hill to get back to the chalet, guests may prefer to have use of a car, although it isn't necessary.

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.

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

Chalet Falcon can also be booked as a 6 bedroom chalet sleeping 16/18, including the self contained apartment which would remain empty if not 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.

Chalet Falcon delivers a fantastic elevated position within Samoens offering peace, tranquillity, and wonderful views, yet remains just a 11-12 minute walk down and 15 minute walk back up from the historic village centre.

For non-skiers or those looking for a day off the slopes, the beautiful village hosts a number of activities including an ice rink, with regular ice hockey matches and ice dancing displays. Linking the villages of the Haute Giffre valley, a vast network of cross country ski pistes can be accessed from Samoens.

A car is recommended, particularly for grocery shopping, but it isn't necessary. A walk of around 300m will take you to the nearest ski bus stop, with a regular service to the Grand Massif Express gondola in Samoens, offering an efficient link into the impressive Grand Massif network (bus service may end late March - see In Resort Transport for timetable).

Alternatively, if you wish to drive, it takes around 3-4 minutes and a large free car park is available opposite the gondola - The Grand Massif Express. Guests using our ski equipment rental partner can benefit from equipment storage in lockers at the top of the Grand Massif Express.

In the spring, summer and autumn, an excellent network of walking paths lead directly from the chalet with trails winding up through ancient forest and hamlets towards the popular Bourgeoise mountain. Alternatively, follow the trails towards the gentle paths which follow the tumbling river Giffre, with its numerous scenic picnic spots! Road and mountain bikers are well catered for with quick and easy access to the Col de Joux Plane route, as featured in the 2016 edition of the Tour de France. For mountain bikers, world class single-track delivers you to the chalet door, including a section of trail made famous by the Enduro World Series.

Chalet Falcon is nestled in the Alps, close enough that you can walk into town, but high enough up that you enjoy fantastic views from it’s many balconies. It’s very spacious, offering ample room for entertaining and is packed with chalet essentials such as fondue and raclette sets. The fact that it boosts a hot tub and a swimming pool just gives it that total feeling of luxury living. We highly recommend this chalet for both winter and summer holidays. Thank you very much.

Laura, Chalet Falcon, July 2022

We found the chalet very beautiful and spacious. Our opinion of this beautiful chalet is very positive: hot tub, table football and TV room...the children were delighted and so were we.

Peyrol, Chalet Falcon, March 2021

I loved the chalet; we thought it was beautiful and very well laid out. The bedrooms were spacious and it was lovely to enjoy the living room and TV snug. I particularly loved the furniture which provided a very individual touch. The combination of the rooms was perfect for a group of friends with kids. I would definitely recommend the chalet to other people as it was one of the nicest places I have ever stayed!

Taylor party, Chalet Falcon, February 2018

It was the loveliest chalet we've ever stayed in! It was so spacious as well as beautifully appointed. There was plenty of hot water for multiple showers etc. The towel rails were very efficient at drying things which was very useful! The boot room was also very spacious - we also loved the table football.

Danby party, Chalet Falcon, February 2018

We had a fabulous time in Samoens. The chalet has a very relaxed feel to it. It has lots of films to watch and lots of sociable areas to have a chat. The utilities were very easy to use and the arrival pack was a lifesaver! We had a brilliant time - we 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.
