A spectacular chalet in a breathtaking location! What a surprise this gem is, from the generous gifts of food, toiletries and cleaning supplies, to the thoughtfulness in the decorations, the games and the entertainment. Most special of all is how this chalet feels like home - a sanctuary in which to laugh, love, rejuvinate and live life. Thank you for this gift you have shared.

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!"
