Property reviews

"Such a cosy, comfortable, clean, and thoughtfully equipped chalet, with so many stylish touches. We relaxed and settled in immediately. The position on the edge of wonderful Samoens is perfect - a short walk into the centre or to the GME, and so peaceful - just the bubbling river and birdsong.  We would return without hesitation!"

Saville, Chalet Petit Coeur, January 2024

"For much of our 10-night, early December stay, the village was blanketed in snow. Petit Coeur was warm, comfortable and a joy to come home to. A few restaurants and shops were still closed for the off-season - which means, sigh, another visit to Samoens. Alps Accommodation were friendly, professional and easy to deal with. Thank you for making it all run so smoothly. We’ll definitely be back, and will recommend you to others." 

Saunders, Chalet Petit Coeur, November/December 2023

“We really loved your house in Samoens. It was our third time in Samoens and definitely not the last! This was the most beautiful house we´ve had in the last years in Samoens. We really loved the architectural attention of the chalet. Everything worked well and you can see that the chalet was built with love and attention. The location was perfect! And it was very luxurious for the 2 of us!
We loved our holiday with the start of the Tour de France in Samoens. And the Chalet was a great base to do our road cycling, walking in the mountains, running and swimming and shopping in Samoens and Chamonix! Thank you for the hospitality and the good communication with you, Sarah and Oli and Alps Accomodation.”

JK, Chalet Petit Coeur, July/August 2023

"Chalet Petit Coeur is beautiful and well situated for visiting the region. We stayed there for 2 weeks and felt right at home, with a beautiful setting to boot. Lots of walks nearby and a beautiful little village 5 minutes away on foot (Samoens). The large bedroom with a king-size bed was very pleasant with its balcony. If we come back to the region, this is where we'll stay again."

Marino, Chalet Petit Cœur, May 2023

"For our week's holiday, we chose to stay at Chalet Petit Coeur in Samoens.  A superb little chalet, ideal for 4 people, decorated with great taste and  very good quality. We spent some good moments near the fireplace. Moreover this little corner of paradise is only 5 minutes from the town centre."

Werle, Chalet Petit Coeur, April 2023

"Pretty little chalet ideal for four people that is centrally located to Samoens town centre. Peaceful location with fabulous walks to the riverside and walks. The interior is beautifully appointed and well maintained."

Summerfield, Chalet Petit Coeur, January 2023

"We have just come back from two wonderful weeks at Chalet Petit Coeur. The chalet is beautiful and comfy, a real home away from home. We had everything that we needed for a relaxing stay in Samoens. The location is perfect for the village as well as being able to walk straight out of the door onto hikes and trails. Looking forward to returning there soon!"

Karina, Chalet Petit Coeur, September 2022

"Very nice chalet, with everything you need inside."

Hiegel Family, Chalet Petit Cœur, August 2022

"We've had a wonderful, relaxing 2 weeks stay at chalet Petit Coeur. The chalet is a true gem, very well equipped, and offers all the modern conveniences one could wish for. The generous welcome pack was a nice extra touch and made us feel at home right away. The beds are extremely comfortable. And on top of that, Petit Coeur is very cosy! Special note: we absolutely loved the beautiful fabrics used for the curtains and cushions!  To sum it up, we are already making plans for the next visit! Thanks also to Fiona and Lewis (property managers) for their services, and to Alps Accommodation for a swift booking process."

Pascale, Chalet Petit Coeur, January 2022

"We spent the week of 6-14 March in the Chalet Petit Coeur. We would like to thank you for the quality of the property, the comfort and the services of the Chalet were remarkable!"

Lefevre, Chalet Petit Coeur, March 2021

"The Chalet "Petit Coeur" is very welcoming, really comfortable for 4/5, very well decorated and arranged. It lacks nothing: the bedding and the accommodation are very pleasant...without forgetting Fiona and Lewis who, while discreet, were always available, helpful and, invaluable for any information. Very close to the city center on foot. I highly recommend! Very good stay in this difficult 2020 winter period! We will gladly come back!"

Maron, Chalet Petit Coeur, New Year 2021

"We spent two wonderful, relaxing weeks in summer 2020 in Chalet Petit Coeur. It is perfect for a family of four, with a wonderful kitchen and an incredible sofa! The terrace and outside table is perfect for midday or evening meals when the weather is good. The chalet is incredibly well furnished, everything is there to make the stay as perfect as possible. Beds are just perfect! Two relaxing weeks in this difficult 2020 summer period!"

Boutet Family, Chalet Petit Coeur, July 2020

"We have just returned from a wonderful week staying in Chalet Petit Coeur. As described, the chalet is fitted to a high standard and every single thing has been thought of. We are a family of 4 so with 2 teenagers the size was just perfect. Freesat & Netflix were an added bonus and the beds were all wonderfully comfortable. I would not hesitate to stay in this chalet again and would like to mention that communication with the owner before & after was also top notch. Don't hesitate to book, you will love it."

Harvey, Chalet Petit Coeur, February 2020

"Lovely chalet. Perfect for a family of 4. The chalet is very well decorated !! The beds are great! Excellent location, not far from the village centre and the ski lift. We loved the welcome pack. We will gladly come back."

Lamblin, Chalet Petit Coeur, February 2020

"We spent a lovely week staying in chalet Petit Cœur in Samoëns over New Year 2020. The chalet is warm and cosy, and in a fantastic location which is quiet and easy to get to the ski bus and shops. No need for a car at all. Kitchen is amazing; very well designed, with lots of workspace. Owners were very kind and helpful. Thank you!"

Myriam, Chalet Petit Coeur, January 2020

"As a family of five we spent a fantastic Christmas week at Chalet Petit Coeur. The chalet was warm and spacious, and kitted out with all modern necessities. It is just a short walk into Samoëns village which boasts some lovely shops, restaurants and had a charming Christmas market. The management of the property was excellent with very easy contact with the team and we wouldn’t hesitate to return."

Suzanne, Chalet Petit Coeurs, December 2019

About the owner

Having already experienced many happy times in Samoëns at the neighbouring Deux Coeurs, when the chance came up to buy a derelict “remise” (workshop) next door we couldn’t resist and we have really enjoyed renovating it to be our secret family bolthole. We love the relaxed, friendly Savoyarde village with access to so many activities in any season. There is easy access to great restaurants and bars and we would spend more time here if we could with family and friends. The neighbouring, different sized properties allow combinations of numbers and groups and they can be rented together or separately. We have tried to create a family “home from home” feel, so that you can relax and enjoy Samoëns and Petit Coeur as much as we do.
