Samoëns

Beautiful, unspoilt village in a stunning setting and the 4th largest linked ski area in France

Samoëns is the jewel of the Grand Massif, a traditional and beautifully preserved village linking to four neighbouring resorts to create a formidable ski area. The village centre is dynamic with everything from boutique bakeries and cosy cafés to yoga classes and ice diving. The Grand Massif Express links the village to the ski area giving a real sense of elevation - way above the clouds! The village enjoys a breathtaking setting in the Giffre Valley, surrounded by seven stunning peaks and is renowned for great value restaurants and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere - a great choice for families!
