Reviews

We had a wonderful two weeks in Samoens.  Chardons Argentes E2 is fantastic - extremely comfortable, and so well situated!  We loved exploring the area with our two girls (aged 10 and 8) - hiking in Fer a Cheval and Joux Plane, whitewater rafting, canyoning, zipwiring through the trees and so much more!  We are already talking about how soon we can head back!  Tim and the team were great, and truly we couldn't have hoped for a better holiday - huge thanks to Sahra for letting us share this fantastic apartment!

Moss family, Chardons Argentes E2, July/August 2018

We really enjoyed our time in Apartment E2 Les Chardons Argentés. The apartment is beautifully equipped and very comfortable. It really worked very well for our party of 7. We were a little concerned regarding the distance to the Gondola, however the free bus service was very convenient and punctual and I would happily use it again. The Swimming Pool is a wonderful facility and the kids really enjoyed a swim after a day skiing. Samoens is a great family resort with some lovely restaurants.

Hart family, Chardons Argentes E2, April 2018

We had a really lovely holiday your apartment! It was lovely and clean and very well stocked and great to able to walk in to town for dinner.

Rice family, Chardons Argentes E2, February 2017

Just a quick note to thank you for allowing us to rent the apartment, we all had a fantastic time and would recommend the apartment to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in the Alps, the location is ideal for both the village and Indiana Park and to top it all the weather was very kind to us.

Roberts, Chardons Argentes E2, July 2016.

We had a wonderful stay in your chalet – very comfortable for a family of 6 and a baby! The location was great being a few minutes from the town centre and the market. Another big advantage was having the ski bus pick one up so close to the chalet. We were also very lucky with the snow conditions in having beautiful deep powder on arrival and glorious sunny weather for the two weeks.

Fairbrother family, Chardons Argentes E2, March 2016

We stayed for in this lovely apartment with 4 other friends. Apartment was large, well equipped and very comfortable. The beds and linen were great, and the lounge area saw us relaxing most nights on the couches. Ski bus stop just outside, and easy walk in to the village. Communication with both the owner and the property managers was really easy. We would highly recommend.

Hindle party, Chardons Argentes E2, January 2016

We had an amazing stay at the apartment, it is spacious and beautifully furnished, and it more than comfortably housed ourselves, the in-laws and our 18 month old son. The bedrooms are really comfortable and the beds are huge!! It was an easy 5 minute walk into Samoens which is a beautiful village. The ski bus stopped at the end of the road! The underground parking and pool were a real bonus!  We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in this beautiful apartment and would love to come back!

Holtham, Chardons Argentes E2, January 2016.

I have just returned from a week stay and wanted to give a well earned review.  The location is superb, very close to town. The apartment is wonderful could not fault it at all, well equipped with everything you could need. The facilities excellent. The owner has been amazing in her communications arranging everything we needed. We arrived late a night and were overjoyed with the location and then we entered the apartment and it was simply stunning and to top it off we had been left a welcome pack containing such things as bread, butter, cheese, jam, milk, wine but to name a few things. Worth every penny and will be back next year.

Ali, Chardons Argentes E2, January 2015

Lovely, well equipped and very well located apartment. Sahra the owner was also very helpful. Great base for our Summer holiday.

Georgiadis, Chardons Argentes E2, July 2014.

We had a great trip thanks. Your apartment was lovely and very well equipped. It's just a shame we have to come back to reality!

Boyes, Chardons Argentes E2, April 2014.

We had a brilliant time in your wonderful Apartment. It had everything you needed and even more. A delightful place with beautiful surroundings. Ideally situated for the slopes and the town. Plus a 7 minute walk to the Carrefour supermarket. Skiing was super. Plus a bonus of brilliant weather

Patterson, Chardons Argentes E2, April 2014

I was in a group of 8 staying at Les Chardons Argentes E2 in Jan 2014 and would recommend it for anyone wanting a great place to stay in Samoens. When we arrived at the apartment we were all very impressed. It was spacious and very obvious the owner takes pride in it. The pictures and write up are a very good representation of what it is actually like. Both the kitchen and living area are more than big enough for 8 people and the cooking facilities are very good.The free ski bus stop is only a short walk away and it only takes a few minutes to get to the centre of town. The swimming pool was usually empty and a great luxury to have after day skiing. The owner of the apartment was very accommodating and set up all of the beds set up as singles to our request and was easy to contact her throughout the booking process. We arrived early and it was arranged for the apartment to be cleaned ahead of schedule for us. We're hoping to go back again next year!

About the owners

On our first holiday to Samoens, we found it charming, friendly and accessible with excellent skiing. Off the slopes, Samoens is a place of genuine character, proud of its traditions, yet still enormously welcoming.

We bought our apartment off-plan, so we could put in an extra shower room, a bigger kitchen where two (or more!) people can cook at the same time, a full-sized oven and a large fridge/freezer. 

We love the apartment’s quiet outlook yet you can walk to the restaurants and shops in minutes.  It is also perfect for summer. The scenery is spectacular and there is so much to do.  The balcony catches the evening sun: perfect for an aperitif or meal at the end of a busy day.
