Main Image

Chalet Vercland is an Alps Accommodation managed luxurious chalet, constructed by local artisans with a unique burnt wood exterior and a high level of comfort.  The impressive 200m2 of space is arranged over 3 floors, offering a log fire, 4 bedrooms, plus a snug (which can be made as a 5th bedroom) and a mezzanine area.  If there are children in the group the chalet can sleep to 10 people. The chalet also benefits from a garden and 2 large sunny terraces.  

Located 350m from Samoens' original telecabine in the hamlet of Vercland, the chalet offers the perfect peaceful, yet convenient setting.  This telecabine, chosen by many locals for its’ limited queues, takes you directly to Samoens 1600 with instant access to Samoens' and the Grand Massif's ski area. Depending on snow conditions, you can ski the red or black run down to within 250m of the chalet, or alternatively take the ski lift back down.  These pistes have been improved with the addition of plenty of new snow cannons.  Our recommended ski hire shop, located at Samoens 1600 is right opposite the top of the lift, has free ski lockers, so there is no need to take skis and boots back to the chalet if you prefer overnight.

Opening onto the lounge, the 4/5 seater corner sofa and further 3 seater sofa surround the large log burner, creating the perfect space to kick back and relax, either watching the satellite TV with English and French channels, plus Netflix.  Or simply take in the stunning scenery enjoyed from every window of the living area.

A further 2 comfy chairs are provided at a cosy reading/games area next to the dining space.  The dining area offers a generous chunky teak table for 8/10 people to dine in comfort, with a drinks dresser and cupboard with plenty of games, books and toys at hand.  Again stunning views can be enjoyed at every turn.

Reviews

”The house was beautiful, well equipped, clean and well located. The ski resort is great for both adults and children. Alison could not have been a better host. Every question was answered quickly and efficiently, we were made to feel very welcome and she even helped us organise ski schools, a nanny and lift passes. Must rate as one of my best ever skiing holidays and I would whole heartedly recommend Chalet Vercland and Samoens. ” Adam, February 2018

“Thank you Alison and family for letting us use your beautiful chalet, we especially enjoyed the open plan kitchen/living area with the fantastic views. The location is perfect, away from any noise but within walking distance of the Gondola. Plenty of restaurant options near by if you don't want to eat in every night like us !! A thoroughly enjoyable holiday.”  Yvette February 2017
