Thompson, The Mazot, December 2019

"I would like to express my appreciation of the superb service I received from you in every aspect of my holiday at The Mazot. Throughout the booking process every little query I had was answered promptly and in a very helpful way. We arrived well before the official check-in time and found the property ready for us, which was really pleasing. Our transfer from the airport with Go Massif was first-class, with a friendly English-speaking driver who took us to the vehicle within 2 minutes of us arriving at the Go Massif desk, and departed immediately for the resort. We were then met by Liam who was waiting at the Mazot when we arrived. Very impressive! Liam was in fact most helpful, and at the end of our stay was able to be flexible about our time for leaving the Mazot. We enjoyed the Mazot!  Quirky, yes, but warm, welcoming and with all the facilities we needed. Even the firewood was provided, which was a lovely touch! Plenty of hot water despite me using the huge bath every day! And we appreciated the welcome pack (particularly the coffee!). So once again, many thanks to you all for a great holiday!"

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. In 2021 we took over as the owners of Chalet Moccand and the Mazot, and are very excited 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!
