Chalet Sarbelo commands a spectacular position overlooking Samoens village with views of the Criou and surrounding mountains that will live long in the memory. The chalet is near the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. Despite its impressive yet peaceful location, the chalet remains just 650m (6-7 minute walk) from the heart of Vercland, where you will find the closest pistes, telecabine, plus the popular bar and restaurant of La Reposette for all day food and drinks. 

In winter, the Vercland telecabine called Le Saix is chosen by locals for its’ limited queues and takes you directly to Samoens 1600, with instant access to the Grand Massif ski area. Directly opposite you at the top of the lift is the ski hire shop who offer Alps Accommodation bookings 20% discount and you can leave your skis and boots there overnight free of charge - more details.  Depending on snow conditions, you can ski the long tree-lined red run down to around 500-600m from the chalet.  This run has been significantly improved in recent years with the addition of plenty of new snow cannons, or alternatively, you take the ski lift back down and grab a beer on sunny terrace of La Reposette, while waiting for your friends! A ski bus stop is also located in Vercland taking you quickly to Samoens and the Grand Massif Express gondola, plus Morillon village and the telecabine there.

In summer, hiking trails can be found close to the chalet leading to the gentle valley floor trails alongside the Giffre river, and to Samoens village and the Grand Massif Express in around 20-25 minutes.  Or head uphill towards the plateau of Samoens 1600 and beyond! There is also an excellent selection of mountain bike trails in the valley suitable for all abilities, with some lift served trails leading back to near the chalet.
