Samoens Village Centre In Summer

Summer Holiday in Samoens - 8th of August 2012

Samoens is proving yet again to be an ideal summer holiday choice.   For those of you who have already stayed with Alps Accommodation this year, we trust you enjoyed some of the highlights of the season so far.  Bastille Day and the Festival of the Lakes with their superb fireworks displays, the French Cup Endurance Mountain Biking series, and Envirotrek are just a few of the special events that have taken place.  Not forgetting either the tons of animations that the tourist office has organised each week.  These free events really add a little something extra to the already charming village ambience of Samoëns.

And then of course there’s the stunning weather we’ve been having.  The last couple of weeks in Samoëns have been hot!  After a particularly hot and humid week we were witness to a spectacular thunderstorm this weekend.  The storm not only provided us with a sensational sight and sound show, but it brought with it some fresh and most welcome temperatures in the mid 20’s.  The sunshine is back now and forecasts tell us it is here to stay, which is great news as there is plenty more happening in Samoëns in the weeks ahead.

So by no means is the summer season over!  August is only just upon us, the weather is grand making the mountains the perfect playground for all your preferred activities. Be it hiking, biking, rafting, via ferata, climbing, there’s plenty for the sporting enthusiasts to choose from.  Of course it’s not all about the mountains and there really is something for everyone in Samoëns.  Musical buffs will be pleased to know that our little village is playing host to a number of recitals and concerts in the weeks ahead.  Next Tuesday the 14th is the “Grand Concert de l’Harmonie Municipale”, the region’s classical concert of the year.  Those of you who prefer a more lively and modern sound can dance the night away to one of Samoëns’ resident DJs, who will be playing after the fireworks display next Wednesday.  The following week, commencing Saturday the 18th of August sees the return of the Céline Zavatta Circus; always a hit with kids (big and small) this is one not to be missed by families.  The same week will be a shopper’s delight as all the shops in town take part in the annual “Braderie des Commercants”.  For three days prices are slashed with discounts getting bigger as the days go by.  So remember to pack an extra bag that week, and don’t forget to think about your accommodation too. 

With so much going on in Samoëns this month you’ll want to be in a prime spot.  Alps Accommodation still has some fantastic apartments available and we want to make sure you get exactly what you want.  So please contact us today with your reservation enquiry, we’d be more than happy to help.  Don’t forget to ask about our special offers too!

From Tom and Ali, and all the team we look forward to welcoming you to Samoëns soon.
