Chalet Balthazar is a stunning 4/5 bedroom, 4 bathroom chalet with hot tub, boasting an excellent location on the edge of the historic village of Samoens. Spread over 153m2, this bright and spacious property can comfortably sleep 8-10 people.

The semi-detached chalet has been recently renovated to create a fresh and modern property.  Thoughtfully laid out to ensure each bedroom has floor to ceiling windows to provide a bright and uplifting atmosphere throughout, as well as framing the stunning views from each room. The chalet combines rustic wood, luxurious linen and soft furnishings, with local décor to give the property a contemporary alpine feel. Luxurious extras include a warming log burner, granite work surfaces, under floor heating, an impressive games room/home cinema room with a pool table, comfy corner sofa and large 152cm LCD TV with Blu-ray player and Xbox 360. 

Surrounded by open farmland and stunning mountain views in the sought after hamlet of Vallons, the chalet is just 9 minutes flat walk from the centre of Samoens. A 5 minute walk will take you to the closest ski bus stop, with a free and regular service to the Grand Massif Express gondola in Samoens.  The chalet is in an idyllic location for holidays throughout the year.

This property is privately owned and has been carefully selected to be in Alps Accommodation’s premier portfolio. It has a Saturday changeover day, however in low season and for last minute bookings, flexible arrival day and length of stay may be available. Contact us for more information.

You enter Chalet Balthazar into a spacious entrance area which offers excellent storage for outdoor footwear and clothing. Carry on further into the property, and you enter the open plan kitchen, dining and living area, which is illuminated by a large window overlooking the gardens with beautiful views of distant farmland and mountains beyond. A comforting warmth can be felt radiating from grey slate floor tiles, which contrast wonderfully against the textured wood clad walls. The modern, fully equipped kitchen features a full size electric fan oven, 4 ring ceramic hob, dishwasher, microwave and granite work surface area, as well as luxurious extras such as a Nespresso coffee machine. In the dining area a beautiful chunky wood dining table, comfortably seating up to 10 people, rests below an attractive suspended light while offering more great views from the large east facing window. In the first of two separate living areas, a comfortable sofa offers a space to rest weary legs in front of the cosy, crackling log fire which takes centre stage in this room. An LCD TV can be found in this area.

A real highlight of Chalet Balthazar is the vast lower level which combines a games room, home cinema and second living area to create a wonderful space to be enjoyed by the whole group. At one end of the room, guests will find a pool table while at the other is an enormous and very comfortable corner sofa which provides a luxurious vantage point to enjoy the large 152cm LCD Smart TV with Blu-ray player, surround sound speakers and Xbox 360 games console. This sofa can be also be converted into a double bed.  Also located in the lower ground floor is a combined washing / drying machine. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the property.

Chalet Balthazar offers 4/5 bright and spacious bedrooms each featuring high quality linen, luxurious throws, local décor, and a clever splash of vibrant colour. The rooms have been thoughtfully designed to ensure four of these bedrooms feature floor to ceiling windows to generate a bright and uplifting atmosphere, while also offering fabulous views. Each of the rooms have black out electric shutters, to ensure a secure and good nights sleep can be enjoyed at all times.

Bedroom 1 is an impressive ensuite room boasting stunning views towards towering snowy peaks beyond vast open farmland. The room has a lovely calm feel and features a king-size bed (can be configured as twin beds on request), with a soft weaved bed throw and a carved wooden picture above.  The ensuite bathroom guests will find a shower, vanity unit with sink, and WC. Good storage is provided by a wardrobe and chest of drawers.

Bedroom 2 is a spacious king bedroom featuring a real chic alpine design, with the luxury of an ensuite bathroom. From the comfortable king size bed bed, enjoy wonderful views from west facing sliding doors. Good storage is provided by a large chest of drawers and hanging space. In the ensuite bathroom, guests will find a shower, vanity unit with sink, and WC.

Bedroom 3 is a very spacious king bedroom with ensuite bathroom (can be configured as twin beds on request). The room has been beautifully decorated with luxurious throws, large cosy cushions and an intricate tapestry stool. The ensuite bathroom offers a shower, vanity unit with sink, and WC. Great storage is available in a wardrobe and a beautifully carved chest of drawers.

Bedroom 4, is a lovely bright and fresh twin bedroom, again with great views.  This room has the flexibility to be configured as a super king bedroom with prior request.  This bedroom features an ensuite bathroom featuring a bath with integrated shower, vanity unit with sink, and WC, while shelving offers good storage.

The lower living area/snug features a double sofa bed and can therefore be used as a spacious and comfy fifth bedroom.

Chalet Balthazar boasts a flat lawned garden which surrounds two sides of the chalet and is home to the lovely bubbly hot tub.  This benefits from day long sunshine due to the chalet's fabulous location on the wide valley floor. The garden provides a wonderful place to play or relax at any time of the year, with stunning views to spectacular waterfalls and towering alpine peaks and ridges. A covered walkway leads to the private hot tub, perfect after a long day in the mountains.

Ski storage is provided in a locked cupboard while a private driveway provides off street parking for 3 cars. There is also the added benefit of a secure barn, large enough to store bikes, and all outdoor equipment, and you are able to charge your electric car from the barn using your own EV charging cable and standard electrical socket.

Chalet Balthazar occupies a fantastic position on the edge of Samoens in a peaceful, unspoilt location surrounded by open farmland with spectacular views in all directions. A scenic flat walk of around 9 minutes will take you to the picturesque village centre of Samoens where you will find cafes, restaurants, bars, local shops, boulangeries, and an excellent weekly market which is not to be missed!

A 5 minute walk will take you to the nearest ski bus stop which offers a regular free service to the Grand Massif Express gondola in Samoens which offers great links into the vast Grand Massif network. Alternatively, there is a large free car park opposite the same gondola.

In the summer months some of the best walking trails lead directly from the chalet, including those which lead up to the famous peak of Le Criou. For those looking for a more relaxed time, why not stroll through the unspoilt sleepy hamlet of Les Vallons, or join the gentle riverside trails between Samoens and Sixt-Fer-a-Cheval which are enjoyed equally on foot or by bike.

Property reviews

"We loved staying in this super comfortable chalet - it had everything we needed. A short walk into the village (for morning croissants, restaurants & bars) and to the ski bus stop! Would definitely recommend!"

Carol and family, Chalet Balthazar-Jeroboam, January 2023

"The town of Samoens is really nice, everything is very lively, especially at this time of year when it's not too busy. The person in charge of the chalet was available and was able to deal with any last minute problems. It's a lovely chalet and we had a great week. The playroom is great and the children were delighted!"

Suhr, Chalet Balthazar, New Year 2020/2021

"We had a wonderful stay in the chalet, it was clean and modern and very well looked after. The service we received was excellent particularly with regards to accommodating a couple of special requests. The management responded extremely quickly and efficiently and we would definitely consider returning either to this chalet or others on your site."

Fine Family, Chalet Balthazar, August 2019

"I have recently returned from a weeks stay in Chalet Balthazar and wanted to thank all at Alps Accommodation and the owners of the chalet for all their help in making the trip a success, the chalet was perfect and the whole process from booking ran smoothly."

Chalet Balthazar, Black Family, February 2019

"We stayed at the Chalet Balthazar March 30-April 6th 2019. It was absolutely perfect for us as a family of 5. Everyone had their own lovely room and en suite which saved a lot of fuss! The chalet was beautifully clean, well stocked in terms of equipment - should you want to cook but we would recommend the company Bon Appetite who delivered frozen food ready to cook which was delicious. The large family room downstairs made it for us - often previous chalets sleep 5 but don’t ‘accommodate’ 5, but we had plenty of space to chill, watch tv, play pool, go in the hot tub, and could all sit around the table comfortably. The chalet is near the lovely village of Samoëns which is so refreshing after the large purpose built resorts ... and the skiing was amazing. It was very easy driving and parking at the lift and hit the slopes at the top."

Bruce Family, Chalet Balthazar, March 2019
