Despite this, the chalet remains just 700m from the village centre where you will find an excellent range of restaurants, bars, local shops, bakeries and popular weekly market.

In winter, the closest ski bus stop is just 200m from the chalet and offers a regular service to the Grand Massif Express gondola which links into the impressive Grand Massif network (bus service may end late March - see In Resort Transport for timetable).

For mountain bikers there are world class forest tracks behind the chalet, including those made famous by the Enduro World Series, while an excellent and every expanding lift served trail network is easily accessible.

Saville, Chalet Falconnieres, January 2023

"Just one word; wow! This is the first time ever that we have holidayed self-catering, and the photos on the booking website haven't done justice to the superb high standard of the accommodation (how could they!). We were blown away by the beautiful furnishings, and the obvious attention to detail to welcome guests, to make their stay special. Meghan from Piste Out was brill when I contacted her to discuss a couple of minor issues that were encountered.We loved every second of our stay at Chalet Falconnieres and will definitely be back one day. Thanks also for all your help with what seemed like a thousand questions asked by me during the booking process. Loved Samoens, loved Chalet Falconnieres and loved Alps Accommodation."

Searancke Family, Chalet Falconnieres, April 2022
