Location

location

Chalet Gentiane Bleue boasts a fantastic elevated position above the charming village of Samoens, with stunning views to the the surrounding peaks, waterfalls, and ski pistes. Despite this, the chalet remains just 6 minutes walk from the village centre with it’s excellent selection of local shops, bars, restaurants, butcher and boulangerie. A large supermarket is located on the edge of Samoens, as is a new bowling alley with its own popular restaurant and bar.

In winter, a short walk of around 6 minutes will take you to the nearest ski bus stop providing a free and regular service to the Grand Massif Express in Samoens. Guests can store ski equipment and ski boots at the bottom, or top, of the gondola via one of our recommended hire shops, making that evening stroll through town for a vin chaud a little more tempting! Alternatively, a large, free car park is located directly opposite the same gondola. Samoens’ excellent new ice rink is a 6-7 minute walk from the chalet, as is the excellent weekly local market.

In summer, a walk of around 10-15 minutes will take you to numerous activities including the outdoor swimming pool, adventure parks, golf driving range, summer telecabine, tennis courts and pony rides. Numerous trails, ideal for walking and biking, litter the sun baked south side of the valley and lead almost directly back to the chalet.

Reviews

Great experience all round, from which chalets to shortlist, response time and always good info regarding queries.  Knowledgeable staff all round. Couldn't fault the accommodation and we have booked loads of chalets before and this was the best to date - and the choice here was excellent.  Highly recommended and would use again.
