Surrounded by private gardens, Chalet Moccand is in a prime location a mere 5-minute, flat walk (350m) from the historic town centre of Samoëns. Quiet, and yet conveniently located to Samoëns’ many shops, restaurants, bars, picturesque town square and gardens, the chalet is an ideal year-round holiday destination.

In winter, the bus stop for the free ski bus is just 110 metres from the chalet, allowing you access to the Grand Massif Express ski lift in a matter of minutes. The impressive, newly built ice skating rink is only a 10-minute walk from the chalet.

In summer, you can access a number of hiking and mountain bike trails direct from the chalet, which is also just 50m from the picturesque Clevieux stream. Take a stroll along the stream for 5-minutes and find yourself on the banks of the beautiful Giffre river where even more hiking and biking trails await. The Grand Massif Express lift also operates throughout July and August and is a short 2-minute drive away or a 12-minute walk.

A 10-minute drive from the chalet is the stunning scenery of Sixt and the Cirque du Fer a Cheval. At certain times of the year up to 30 waterfalls tumble over 2000m high cliffs in this spectacular national park. The chalet is also centrally located for visits to the Giffre valley’s other quaint, alpine villages.

Chalet Moccand has an official 4-star rating from the Samoëns Tourist Office

The Bells, Hoppers and Sturgeons, Chalet and Apartment Moccand, January 2018

"Outstanding from start to finish. Chalet Moccand was perfect for us in a fab location, with the village centre being just a few minutes’ walk from the chalet. It is beautifully decorated with ample room for 10 fitness enthusiasts coming to run a race (Samoens Trail Tour). The rooms offered a variety of sleeping options from doubles, twins to bunk beds. The bathrooms were finished to a high spec and were in keeping with the style of the property. The kitchen offered great space and facilities to prepare a mighty feast. Even with 10 of us all sorting our race supplies in the morning there was still plenty of room. The dining area was huge, boasting a beautiful rustic table, as did the living area, furnished with leather sofas, large cozy blankets, a flat screen TV and of course the fireplace forming the heart of this perfect dwelling. We all loved the sunny garden and massive hot tub, it was a home-from-home with a very warm welcome. We will be visiting again. If you're looking for accommodation in Samoens this is the place to come."

About the owner

We found Samoens in 2016, when we were looking to buy an apartment in Haute Savoie, and immediately fell for its charms and the excellent range of outdoor activities year-round. We took over as the owners of Chalet Moccand and the Mazot in 2021, and love to share these beautifully renovated properties with our guests. Samoens is a place we find it very easy to relax in, and we aim to help all guests do the same!
