Chalet Lys Martagon is a modern alpine chalet comprising of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms sleeping 6/9 people. This bright and spacious chalet is beautifully arranged over three floors, offering an impressive 76m2 of living space.  It features a comfortable lounge with ample seating around the log fire for those cosy nights in.  The owners have  equipped the property it to a very high standard, with a wonderful homely feel incorporating plenty of locally sourced quality alpine furnishings.

The chalet boasts two balconies and a fantastic south facing terrace, and lawned area ideal for kids to play, with great views of the surrounding mountains. A table and chairs, sun loungers, and a BBQ are provided for guests to make the most of this chalet for holidays at all times of the year.

This property forms part of a small residence of 4 terraced chalets, set in a quiet and enviable location in Samoens. The chalet is just a 7 minute flat walk into the village and has a free ski bus which stops 2 minutes’ walk away. Alternatively, the Grand Massif Express Gondola is a flat and easy 10 minute walk, and if you chose to use one of our partner rental shops, ski equipment storage is available at the top or bottom of the ski lift. With a terrace area to the front and its positioning at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, with direct access to walking and biking routes, it offers a perfect holiday location throughout the year in a peaceful and safe setting.

Special items

Chalet Lys Martagon is the ideal year-round holiday destination for families and friends alike. Set back from the Route de Sixt at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, the chalet provides plenty of space for children to play. Or simply sit back, relax and enjoy the quiet surrounds.

Samoëns’ bustling village centre is an easy, 7-minute walk away along a flat path that follows the old railway line. Visit the many shops, bars and restaurants, stroll through the botanical gardens, or admire the picturesque medieval town square with its beautiful church, ancient buildings and busy Wednesday morning market. There is also a small supermarket with bakery a mere 5-minute walk from the chalet – perfect for getting your freshly baked baguette and croissants for breakfast!

In winter, the free ski bus leaves from a stop just 2-minutes from the chalet. Running approximately every 15 minutes at peak times, you are guaranteed quick and easy access to the main Grand Massif Express lift and our impressive ski domain. Just a snowball’s throw from the chalet you will also find some excellent cross-country skiing terrain (dependent on snow conditions). These trails form a vast network of Nordic trails that run all up and down the valley. The newly built ice-skating rink is little more than a 10-minute walk from the chalet, offering guests yet another favourite winter pastime.

In the summer months a number of walking and mountain bike trails can be accessed within minutes of the property. The GR5, a long distance footpath stretching from the Hook of Holland to Nice, passes close to the chalet along the banks of the Giffre river. It is just one of many walks, long or short, that can be enjoyed from the front door of the chalet. The Grand Massif Express lift is also open throughout July and August, providing guests with access to even more hiking and biking options. Then there is the beautiful Bois Aux Dames lakes and leisure facility with swimming pools, tennis courts, golf driving range, horse riding and more, which is also within easy walking distance of the chalet – approximately 15-minutes.

Property reviews

"I would just like to say a big thank you! We have just returned home from a wonderful stay at Chalet Lys Martagon. It was lovely, everything clean and so well catered for with appliances and crockery etc. The hamper was much appreciated and a nice touch. The information provided was good. We look forward to returning one day to one of your lovely accommodations"

Anonymous, Lys Martagon, February 2024

"The stay at Chalet Lys Martagon was delightful! The lovely and cosy atmosphere made me feel welcome. The cleanliness and warmth added to the overall comfort, and being in a great area surrounded by a nice village and ski resort made the experience even more enjoyable. We had a great time. Highly recommended!"

Ewout, Lys Martagon, January 2024 

"We had a lovely stay in your chalet. The highlight was undoubtedly the lovely time we spent by the fireplace. Thanks for everything! "

Denia, Chalet Lys Martagon, February 2023

"Great, quick and courteous service. Very friendly helpful team with advice on ski hire, passes etc. Lovely accommodation that exceeded expectations."

Bowden, Chalet Lys Martagon, New Year 2022/23

"What a lovely time we have had. Cycled Joux Plane, great food and beer in Samoens, visits to the open air swimming pool, more cycles, relaxing watching the parapenters, and we've also been to the golf driving range. Great weather, great place!"

Lisa, Chalet Lys Martagon, August 2022

"The chalet was really clean and comfortable. it was very well equipped from the kitchen to the detailed activity / area notes provided.  All the communication before we arrived was excellent and really helpful and the list of walks provided was fantastic and easy to follow.  There was plenty of hot water for showers and we didn't need the heating but the chalet was comfortably cool in the heat wave.  Samoens was beautiful - with wonderful walking, a beautiful historic centre and the lake for cooling off. The only thing we would do differently would be to book parapenting when we first arrived (it was fully booked for the next few days when we tried to book towards the end of our stay).  We would totally recommend Alps Accommodation and this chalet and look forward to returning."

Baker Family, Chalet Lys Martagon, August 2022

"Amazing stay - lovely chalet. Lots of snow and sunshine. Staying here felt like being home. "

"Great week and a fantastic chalet. Samoens is full of surprises and the Christmas events were spectacular. Thank you."

Staves, Chalet Lys Martagon, Christmas 2016

"Our time at Lys Martagon was a real delight. It ticks all the boxes if you are looking for a cosy, comfortable, well-equipped chalet in a quiet location and yet still close enough to the town centre and ski-bus access. Relaxing with a glass or two in front of an open fire after a hard day’s skiing with friends really added to the whole experience of our winter sports holiday."

James party, Chalet Lys Martagon, March 2016

"We had a fabulous week here-unforgettable!! The skiing was amazing and our chalet was perfect so thank you so much. We will certainly miss our 'home away from home' in Samoens."

Julie, Chalet Lys Martagon, March 2014

"Our stay was lovely and met and exceeded our expectations - thank you."

David, Chalet Lys Martagon, March 2014

"The chalet was excellently equipped; we were extremely pleased and would stay again. We felt very at home as your advertising promised. Beautifully presented."

About the owner

We first visited Samoens in 2006 and loved it - so we bought our chalet here. We have been coming ever since and heartily recommend it. It's fantastic for families, of course in winter for the skiing but its also very beautiful in summer for the outdoor pool, lakes, adventure parks, rafting and climbing. Walking in the Autumn is particularly stunning and very quiet. The kids cycle around the village for fresh bread in the mornings and build dams by the river. We love the many walking and cycling routes and the wonderful alpine village centre with its traditional shops, bars and restaurants. Adrian and Melanie.
