Les Falconnieres and Lou Cardinales are a stunning collection of 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms spread over two separate chalets and all located within their own private grounds. Les Falconnieres is a five bedroom chalet with two living areas and kitchens. Directly adjacent, Lou Cardinales is a separate chalet offering one bedroom, together providing wonderful flexibility for families or larger groups.

This luxury property is located in a slightly elevated location in Samoëns, boasting inspirational views over the Haute Giffre Valley. Thoughtfully renovated by its talented owners, these properties provide an impressive 301m2 of living space, combining elegant and contemporary design with a light and spacious, yet homely feel.

Guests will find quality at every turn, from beautiful designer sofas, to large comfortable beds, stone tiles and stylish décor.  A quiet night in front of the cosy log fire is a must during the winter, or during the summer enjoy the selection of south facing terraces and balconies.

The properties enjoy a sunny position in Samoëns as light floods in through huge windows and doors which provide stunning panoramic views from the pistes of the Grand Massif, to the dramatic cliffs of the Criou mountain. A short walk of around 10-12 minutes will take you to the historic centre of Samoëns with its numerous local amenities, while a ski bus can be found 200m away providing a speedy service to the Grand Massif Express gondola.

Set in its own private grounds, the chalets offer several outdoor areas to take in the views, including a flat lawn, two covered terraces and three large balconies. A private off-street parking area is available behind the chalet, while a ski locker, boot room and separate utility room provide great storage for equipment and outdoor clothing.

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.

As you enter Chalet Falconnieres, you are immediately led to the wonderfully spacious main open plan living and dining area. Light floods the room through huge windows which capture the jaw dropping alpine views, looking out over Samoens village and the Grand Massif ski area. In the living area you will find three stylish, deep comfortable navy blue sofas surrounding a beautiful large stone feature wall with a warming log fire. A separate armchair provides additional seating, while unique touches such as mirrored lamps and decadent soft furnishings add a touch of elegance. The owners daughter, an interior designer who managed the renovation, has ensured great attention to detail has been incorporated into every area, combining both contemporary and fresh furnishings in each room.  Entertainment is provided by a large Smart TV while a Bluetooth speaker system and free Wi-Fi are available.

In the dining area, a grey slate effect table with luxurious fabric chairs can seat up to 10 people in absolute comfort, beneath the pendant light.  A mirrored wall reflects gorgeous mountain scenery seen through patio doors which lead to the balcony opposite equipped with outdoor seating.

A bright and spacious fully equipped kitchen provides everything you could possibly need with highlights including an American style fridge freezer with water dispenser, full size electric fan oven, electric hob, microwave, and dishwasher. A kitchen island with stools double up as a breakfast bar offering a quiet corner for a morning coffee, as well as excellent work surface and storage space.

Moving down to the lower level of the chalet, you will find the Apartment Falconnieres which can be closed off internally if required. In the apartment you will find a second open plan space, hosting a kitchen, living and dining area. Again capitalising on the property's wonderfully sunny aspect, large windows on two sides offer more spectacular views. The living area features a sofa, two armchairs and a large Smart TV provides entertainment. The second kitchen comes fully equipped including a large fridge freezer, fan oven, electric hob and dishwasher. Located opposite is a stylish dining table which can seat up to 6 people.
