Why Choose Samoens and the Grand Massif?

The Alps are littered with fantastic ski resorts of all shapes and sizes, all of which have their own strengths and weaknesses. Picking out one resort for your next holiday can be a bit of a nightmare!

The experienced Alps Accommodation team have been living year-round in the French Alps for a combined total of over 60 years! Despite our best efforts, we’ve not visited all of the resorts, but we've skied a lot of them! In our opinion, the Grand Massif offers the best combination of everything that is important in a winter holiday. In terms of value, accessibility, snow reliability, views, charm, skiing, and non-ski activities, it's one of the best options available.

That’s the very reason Alps Accommodation decided to call Samoens home over 18 years ago, and nothing has changed since.
