We've had an amazing stay at No. 1 Chalet L'Orlaya. It's been a fantastic base for a brilliant holiday - the hot tub, the comfort of the place, the BBQ, the patio/view and facilities have all made for a wonderful home away from home. Our highlights have included - rafting on the Giffre, walking up the Gorges de la Diosaz in Servoz, a trip to Chamonix and the breathtaking Aguille de Midi, a day out to Annecy, and a walk up to Le Bout de Monde in the Cirque du Fer a Cheval - simply stunning! Add to that the amazing road cycling (dad conquered the Cod de Joux Plane), the beautiful hiking, the local lakes (and fireworks), tennis, delicious food, friendly people, and great weather, and it's hard to think how to top this holiday! Thank you to the Joel family and KPS [the property managers] - we wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

The combination of staying in this wonderful chalet, with Samoens on the doorstep has been an absolute joy! The standard of the accommodation with the the stunning views, the delight of the hot tub and the advantage of the corner plot with space and the field for the children to play in meant that time at 'base camp' was fantastically relaxed and easy. Samoens has been an amazing discovery for us with every summer activity we could possibly wish to do, all within 5 minute cycle of the chalet. Beautiful town centre, fantastic places to eat and drink and warm and friendly locals. We have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay. Thank you for letting us share your delightful chalet and stunning Samoens with you! We'll be back!

It is wonderfully located with amazing views and everything you need for a wonderful stay. It is a great base to have a cycling holiday with both flat and hilly rides but with many alternatives for non-cyclists. We will recommend to all our friends and will hopefully be back. Thank you to the Joel family for allowing us to use your home from home and a special thank you to KPS for the excellent service.

As the first summer visitors to No. 1 Chalet L'Orlaya we have had the most amazing few days. The chalet was home from home, every little detail has obviously had much thought put into it. Thank you so much for sharing your home with. After fantastic walking/weather, the hot tub was the perfect way to end the day. We braved the white water rafting with 'Ecolorado' and would definitely recommend it; fantastic fun, great guide, a real must do. Thank you so much, we can't wait to return!
Parker Family, No.1 Chalet L'Orlaya, May 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chalet L'Orlaya, Samoens. Very convenient for both town & ski bus although we did walk to the ski lift station, which was very easy to do. A new and well equipped apartment, particularly enjoyed the hot tub after a hard days skiing!
Zielinski family, Chalet L'Orlaya, March 2018
It is an amazing house. We wish we could stay here again! The hot tub was great fun. The snow was brilliant for learning and is perfect for a 6&7 year old! Many thanks for letting us stay in your new chalet. A treat for all!
McGrail family, No.1 Chalet L'Orlaya, March 2018
What a great chalet and superb house for our family skiing holiday. This was our first visit to Samoens and certainly won't be our last! We loved the traditional feel of the village, in particular, our visit to the Creperie La Fandioleuse which opened in 1976 where you enjoy you meal in a cosy 'front room'! On the mountain, our favourite haunt was Chalet d'Clair with a roaring log fire upstairs and by missing peak hour, we always managed to get a table. Graham and the Kukipegs team were very welcoming and helpful. Thanks for a great holiday!
