Ecrins Etoiles C9 Main Image

Ecrins C9 is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment which accommodates 4 guests in 50m2 of absolute alpine luxury. The apartment is situated in the prestigious MGM development, Ecrins Etoilés, a prime location in the heart of Samoëns village. Set back from the road in large private grounds, Ecrins C9 offers guests a peaceful, yet central location for their year round holidays.

A 50m walk away is Samoëns’ historic main square with its many shops, cafes, bakeries and restaurants. There is a ski bus stop 150m away with a free and regular buse taking only 2 minutes to reach the Grand Massif Express ski lift. During peak holiday time there is a further service, the "Septi train" which also transports passengers to and from the lift and is just 50m from the apartment. Alternatively, the Grand Massif Express Gondola is an easy 10 minute walk, and if you chose to use one of our partner rental shops, ski equipment storage is available at the top or bottom of the ski lift.

The apartment provides private parking in an allocated private space in the secure underground garage. Further above ground parking is also available.  Guests can also make use of a private and secure ski locker. Both the garage and ski locker are serviced by a lift.

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.

Description

Description

Ecrins 9C is a beautifully decorated 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment situated on the 1st floor of Le Criou, building C of the Ecrins Etoilés complex. This warm and inviting apartment, which is accessed via a lift, sleeps up to 4 guests in 50m2 of total luxury. The owner’s care and attention to detail is seen all throughout this quaint alpine space. It is fitted with only high quality Savoyard furnishings, and many tiny local touches, such as the hand carved wooden love hearts, really add to its charm.  

As you enter the apartment from its quiet first floor entrance there is a small area for hanging coats. There is further storage in the built-in wardrobe just down the hall where you will also find a security safe for your valuable items. The hall opens out onto a lovely open plan living, kitchen and dining area. Relax in the large, plush couch or armchair of this warm and inviting space. For your entertainment there is a flat screen TV (French TV), DVD player, CD player, games, Playstation 3, and iPod connection. There is also free Wi-Fi access throughout.

The kitchen offers excellent facilities such as a large fridge with small freezer compartment, ceramic hob, and full size oven. Extras include a Nespresso coffee machine with complimentary capsules provided. There is also a traditional fondue and raclette set for lovers of cheese who wish to try their hand at some local cuisine. The wooden dining table seats 4 comfortably, and a small setting on the apartment’s south-facing balcony means you can also enjoy al fresco dining in the summer months. A deck chair is also provided to enjoy this sunny outdoor space.

Location

Location

Ecrins 9C is ideally located. Offering great convenience to guests and yet peaceful in its surrounds, this apartment is the ideal destination for your year-round holidays to the Alps.

Ecrins 9C is only 50m from Samoëns’ village centre, with its many shops, bars, restaurants, the beautiful botanical gardens, and picturesque medieval town square. Here, you can admire the stunning church that features original 13th and 15th century stonework, or wander around the bustling Wednesday morning market.

In the winter, it will take only 10-minutes to walk from the apartment to the main Grand Massif Express lift, which allows access to our impressive skiing domain. Alternatively, jump on the free and regular ski bus that leaves from the stop just 150m away and will have you to the lifts in 2-minutes. Or for a novel experience, catch the Septi-train to the lift! It leaves from just off the main square. Another favourite winter activity is ice-skating and Samoëns’ newly built 600m2 ice skating complex is little more than a 5-minute walk from the apartment.

In the summer, a number of great alpine walking and mountain bike trails can be accessed within minutes of the apartment. And road cyclists can attempt the famous Col de Joux Plane climb, which starts just through the square, on the other side of the village. The Grand Massif Express lift also operates throughout July and August, allowing guests easy access to the higher mountain trails and downhill mountain biking terrain.

We also have a number of other apartments in the same development. This is ideal for larger groups or families travelling together and who are looking for multiple accommodations in the one convenient location. Be sure to take a look at: 11B (2-bedroom), 18A (2-bedroom), 15C (3-bedroom), and A23 (4-bedroom).

Reviews

We had a great week with beautiful weather, great skiing and lots of fun! Thanks for letting us stay in your beautiful apartment, super comfy and well equipped. Many thanks!

Berglund party, Apartment Ecrins Etoiles C9, February 2017

This is the 7th year we have used Alps Accommodation and we wish all companies were like them. We can not rate them high enough and they are major reason why keep coming back year after year.

Pembroke, Ecrins Etoiles C9, February 2016.

We have been coming to Samoens since 2005, Winter and Summer, this beautiful village never disappoints. A beautiful and very well equipped apartment enhanced our week, especially Aladin and the Nespresso machine!

The Moxham family, Ecrins Etoiles C9, July 2016

My wife and I would like to express our appreciation for the excellent apartment which we stayed in, during our holiday in Samoens. Your courtesy and professionalism was much appreciated and stands as a recommendation for the future. Best wishes.

George Frangopulos, Ecrins Etoiles 9C, October 2012

First time in Samoens and it certainly lived up to it's reputation. Accommodation first-class and the village and people are very friendly. Lunched at 1600 at Lou Caboens as well as La combe at Morillon 1100 - both very good. La Louisianne and La Clarine were both excellant. Samoens certainly made our New Year special and we'll certainly come back again very soon. Thanks!

Stones, Ecrins Etoiles 9C, New Year 2012 

Great apartment. Excellent attention to detail regarding furnishings and equipment. Very comfy beds and linen. Lovely antique and local area decoration. Tastefully ‘Alpine’. Thanks very much.

Fenner-Solomon, Ecrins Etoiles 9C, May 2011 

We have enjoyed out stay in Samoens. What a beautiful village. We have enjoyed walking and cycling during our holiday and are hoping to return next summer. The accommodation was first class and felt very homely. There were lots of little ‘extras’ in this apartment which made our stay even better.
