The homely Les Fermes de Samoens Apartments are just the ticket for a self-catered stay in Samoëns. You can walk to the Grand Massif Express gondola from here in around 20 minutes, or hop on the bus to be there in 10. And if you fancy starting your ski day in a different spot, it’s easy to get to other nearby lifts from here too, like the Vercland and Morillon gondolas.
Tucked in a quiet spot on the edge of the village, this place fits in well with the mountain landscape. Big wooden balconies and shutters stretch around the outside, and inside there are plenty of natural materials too, from the stone fireplace to the hand-carved wooden benches and chairs. There’s a cosy feel throughout, and the lounge area’s a great place to spend an evening – find a comfy spot by the fire to pick out tomorrow’s runs on the piste map, or play a game of pool with your mates.
You’ll stay self-catered here, so you can pick up some supplies from the nearby supermarket and cook all your own meals in your apartment. If you fancy a little help with breakfast, you can pay to have fresh bread and pastries delivered right to your door. And for traditionally French fare in the evening, why not borrow a fondue or raclette set from reception and tuck into a gooey, cheesy meal to share?
