Description

Chalet Toubkal Samoens Icon

Through the entrance level, you are greeted by the light and spacious open plan living, dining and kitchen area.  The living area boats plenty of seating with a large corner sofa and a separate sofa, so groups don’t need to fight for a comfy spot by the log burner.  The lounge is equipped with HD TV with French and UK satellite channels.  The kitchen offers ample space for entertaining large groups, with a large wooden table seating 10 people comfortably situated with corner bench and cushions, plus 4 funky black chairs.

The kitchen is superbly equipped and offers a hob in the central island, meaning the chef can still socialise with the rest of the group, plus there’s plenty of workspace for others to join in with all the food prep!   There is a mid-height full sized oven with microwave above, a large fridge freezer, dishwasher, toaster, kettle and NESPRESSO machine with starter capsules.  There is ample crockery and dishes, plus extras such as a fondue and raclette machine for cheese lovers.  As a luxurious touch in the kitchen is equipped with locally sourced black granite worktops.

Glass french doors lead onto the huge south facing terrace equipped with dining and lounging furniture.  Steps lead down to the extensive garden area, which is home to the hot tub and boasts the largest flat garden we have ever offered in our portfolio! So the perfect place for a game of football or for kids to run around and play safely.

The 270 degree views from all areas of the living and dining room are truly spectacular and beyond the open alpine pastures, a waterfall can be seen, as well as the ski domain in the distance.

The lower floor, can be accessed either via the internal stairs or the parking area.  This level offers an office area, a utility room with storage for skis and boots, bikes, a washing machine and ample hanging space for drying all your gear.  The games room offers table football and darts, plus a selection of kids toys, and extras such as badminton and boules.  Then finally, the snug area offers an extra room that can be converted into a 5th bedroom with use of the double sofa bed, plus  there is a large HD TV with English channels, and Playstation 4 with games which doubles as a DVD player. Please note the head height on the lower ground floor is approximately 185cm (6.07 feet) on this level.

There are 4 highly appointed bedrooms, where the owners have used a mix of modern alpine furnishings, including furry rugs, cowhide cushions, crisp fresh white linen, fluffy towels, oak flooring and a range of locally sourced furnishings.

The first bedroom is a bright and fresh twin room.  Located on the entrance level, it has an ensuite shower room, with sink, wc and large shower.  A quirky shape, yet very charming and on prior request if there are lots of couples in the group, the beds can be pushed together to be a king-size bed.  There is plenty of hanging and storage, and alpine views are seen through 2 windows, plus a further large window is in the ensuite shower room.

Take the stairs up to the further 3 bedrooms.  The master king-size bedroom suite is truly luxurious, offering a light and spacious yet incredibly cosy room to relax.  An ensuite with an extra-large bath, separate shower, sink and wc.  There is also the added benefit of a small double sofa bed (suitable for 1 adult or 2 kids) plus a further HD TV with built in DVD player, UK and French channels, so it can be used as a family suite.  Plenty of storage and hanging is provided in the hand built deep cupboards.  This room can be made into a twin bedroom on prior request.  The views are spectacular from the window or the glass door leading out onto the balcony.  Across the alpine pastures a waterfall can be seen and the ski domain in the distance.

Next door is another king size bedroom, again offering high levels of comfort and the same amazing views as the master suite. This room also shares a balcony, plus there is plenty of storage in the deep hand built cupboards, and a further chest of drawers and chair are provided. 

Opposite, accessed off the hallway, is a family shower room with large shower, sink and wc.   The mix of stone and wood effect tiles and mosaics, and the over-sized shower head, provide a modern and fresh feel to the room.

The 4th bedroom is a cosy cabin style twin bedroom.  The picture sized window provides views of the mountain behind, and the ample walk in cupboard offers plenty of hanging and shelving space.  Please note there is limited head height for the 2nd bed as it is set below the eaves, yet plenty of room for sitting up in bed with a good book or a cuppa! 

For larger groups, there is a snug area on the ground floor, with large double sofa bed, 2 windows look out over the gardens and there is ample storage.  The chalet can accommodate comfortably up to 10 people, or if young kids in the group, 12 can be slept if utilising both the sofa beds.  This is strictly with prior permission at booking stage and further charges may apply for peak weeks.

Location

location

Chalet Toubkal is situated in an enviable position on the edge of Samoëns village, bordering with the idyllic farming hamlet of Les Vallons.  The chalet is set back from a quiet road, offering peace and tranquillity to guests, and yet remains within an easy walk of all the convenience of Samoëns village. This ideal setting and proximity to all that Samoëns  has to offer makes Chalet Toubkal the perfect year-round holiday destination.

It is an easy 10-minute, flat walk to the centre of Samoëns with its many shops, bars, restaurants, small supermarket, picturesque town square, ice skating and more. In winter, there is the added benefit of the free and regular ski bus. The bus stop is just a 5-minute, flat walk away and transports you with ease to the Grand Massif Express lift, from where you can access our impressive skiing domain. If you prefer to be equipment free to and from the chalet, our recommended ski hire shops have storage facilities on the piste and/or near to the lift. And if you like the idea of trying something other than alpine skiing, the chalet is ideally located to the Nordic skiing terrain of Les Vallons (dependant on snow conditions). Our recommended ski hire shops also rent snowshoes and cross-country skiing equipment. 

In the summer, the Grand Massif Express lift is open throughout July and August, providing guests with access to a number of alpine hiking and downhill mountain biking trails. A number of beautiful hikes and biking trails can also be accessed direct from the chalet. You can attempt to summit the impressive Criou peak - many locals and holiday makers alike are able to hike to the top and back down in the same day. Or take a gentle stroll along the nearby Giffre river. It is possible to walk to and from the Grand Massif Express lift via the riverside path, which takes approximately 12 minutes. For cyclists, the access to routes is instant and you can avoid any mountain climbs (if you wish) - so fabulous for all abilities and ages!

Just a 5-minute drive away is the village of Sixt Fer a Cheval, an area famous for its outstanding beauty. Admire the numerous waterfalls at the Cirque du Fer a Cheval national park, a very popular place to visit. Chalet Toubkal is also centrally located for visits to the Giffre valley's many other quaint, alpine villages.

Reviews

Chalet excellent for position and its amenities. On call staff were excellent, with friendly help and guidance.  Welcome pack was generous and in keeping with the chalet.  Would thoroughly recommend.

Suter Family, Chalet Toubkal, August 2017

Briggs family, Chalet Toubkal, August 2017

A fantastic week in a gorgeous chalet! Catered for our every need and was extremely comfortable after long days biking and hiking. Brill communal space inside and out. Lovely to be greeted with a welcome basket of goodies too - thank you.

Hargrave family, Chalet Toubkal, August 2017

Tuck and Samwells' party, Chalet Toubkal, July 2017

Fantastic place, we have enjoyed being here. Great area with lots to do. We will be back.

Marston family, Chalet Toubkal, July 2017

Our first stay in this lovely chalet and our first visit to Samoens. Chalet Toubkal was perhaps the cleanest accommodation we have ever stayed in - full marks. We really appreciated the welcome pack. We spent lots of time walking during the day and relaxing on the balcony or in the garden. Having a balcony large enough to fit us on was great, and wonderful to have such a large garden. The tree provided some welcome cool shade during the hottest days and we had BBQ's every night. Every year we go somewhere different, but we found Chalet Toubkal and the area so enjoyable and so much on offer that we think we may well return a future year. Will take away many happy memories.

Ringer family, Chalet Toubkal, June/July 2017

This is our second lovely stay in this chalet. It's been wonderful. The weather has been perfect. We have enjoyed the hot tub and views and spent lots of time enjoying the local area.

Mason family, Chalet Toubkal May/June 2017

Another wonderful stay in this perfect chalet. Everything is 1st class. Many thanks.

The Sutherlands, Chalet Toubkal, October 2016

What a wonderful place to spend our holiday with the family. The views and the hot tub.

Jackson family, Chalet Toubkal, September 2016

Chalet Toubkal provides an excellent, stylish, clean home from home in the Alps. Ash and Mike gave us the initial tour of the property on our arrival and they kept in touch over our holiday to make sure we had everything we needed - We could not fault the service provided. We have stayed in many Chalets over the last few years but never received this level of service before. The chalet is in an excellent location with extensive views of the snow capped mountains from the balcony or the hot tub. It provided an excellent hub for our sons downhill mountain biking and our visits to the local towns and even further afield to Annecy and Chamonix. We hope to return one day.

Martyn Pegg, Chalet Toubkal, June 2016.

We had an excellent week's stay within the accommodation. Everything was as expected.  Thank you for your customer service whilst booking. Also thank you for helping with many general queries about the area.  Would highly recommend Alps Accommodation to others.

Vaag party, Chalet Toubkal, March 2016.

We can safely say we enjoyed our break more than most others previous, due mainly to the ambiance and facility afforded by this wonderful property. Our daughter Georgia truly loved staying in the chalet and is still talking about how much she misses it. I am certain we will return at some point and will be in touch; in the meantime I would be grateful if you would pass on our comments to the owners, who have clearly thought about every detail with some level of quality and care. Can I also ask you to thank Paul for his friendly and helpful show round, which enabled us to settle on arrival. Many thanks again.

Paul, Chalet Toubkal, July 2015.

About the owners

Chalet Toubkal was purchased in 2014 by Alps Accommodation's owners Tom and Ali.  We live in Samoens year round and originally bought the chalet to become our own family home.  We fell in love with Toubkal due to its potential, quiet location, stunning uninterrupted views, and truly alpine setting on the edge of Samoens village.  As the renovations progressed, we changed our focus and realised it would make the perfect rental property.  The fact that it was a complete renovation project was so interesting for us, as we love a project! Taking a chalet with so much charm and giving it a full renovation over 12 months, was quite a challenge.  We are delighted to include Chalet Toubkal within our rental portfolio and really hope you will enjoy staying here! Tom and Ali Ward-Lee
