Chalet Coeur provides an authentic and relaxing mountain experience and a superb base for skiing / paragliding / trekking / walking / snow shoeing mountain biking and much more...

The space

The chalet is conveniently located only a 15 minute drive from the town centre and 20 minutes from the ski lift that connects you to the Grand Massif domain, which boasts some of the best skiing in the world. Just outside the door is a beautiful view of Mont Blanc and a fantastic snow-shoeing/Nordic skiing route. In the summer, the Samoens area is a hub for adventure sports such as hiking, mountain biking, climbing and paragliding.

Relax in the living area by the glass fronted fireplace with stunning panoramic views of the majestic Criou mountain. After a hard day's skiing, put your feet up and watch a DVD on the projector, take a sauna or challenge someone to a game on the pool table.

The house sleeps 10 (in fixed beds) or up to 13 in sofa / folding beds. The bedroom layout is as follows: 1. Master bedroom with ensuite sunken bath, shower and panoramic views, sleeps two. 2. twin room with ensuite, sleeps two. 3. double room, sleeps two. 4. bunk room, sleeps four. There is a connecting room with sofa bed, can sleep 1 (or 3-4 children with provided camp beds)

Fast Wifi internet access

This home is comfortable for couples wanting to get away because you can be tucked away upstairs in the living area and master suite. But it is also fun to fill the house with a group of friends or one big family as there is plenty of space.

If you are holidaying with 2 families, our friends have a property very close by which they are renting out here: https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/1148804

IT IS ESSENTIAL when you book between November - April that you hire or have a 4x4 or at the very least, snow chains. The road is ploughed daily but if it snows heavily during the daytime, you will not be able to get back to the house without adequate transport in the evening. After a long days skiing, you do not want to be walking all the way up the hill or putting yourself at risk. PLEASE DO NOT BOOK WITHOUT A 4x4 or SNOW CHAINS THAT SPECIFICALLY FIT YOUR CAR.

You will be met at the tourist office in Samoens by the house key-keeper, who will show you the way to the house. The chalet is fairly secluded so we want to ensure that all of our guests arrive safely. On arrival, he will explain how the lighting, heating, sauna, fireplace and kitchen functions and be available to answer any questions you might have.

You will have all of the house to yourself.

It takes roughly 1 hour to drive to Geneva airport, the train station Gare de Cluses (25 minutes away) is also well connected to the rest of Europe. You will need to rent your own car and snow chains as there is no public transport near the house.

This is a stunning one-off rural property with plenty of historic, rustic charm, combined with luxurious comfort and all mod cons. It is situated in a raised panoramic location giving you some of the best views in all of Samoens, and is situated only 20 minutes from the main ski lift. This is a dream location.

We stayed at this superb location for 6 days in end May and early June. Coming from a bustling tropical city and high rise living, staying at 1200m in Samoens have been an experience of the lifetime. The chalet is exactly as what you see in the photos. Nothing is out of place. The location may be secluded, but it's easily reachable by car. And we were there with two massive MPVs. The highlights were the hikes and walks which you could easily tak from the chalet itself; it is also near some beautiful towns and cities like Geneva and Annecy. The chalet is luxuriously equipped and beautifully designed. We cooked virtually all our meals there and appreciate the massive and well equipped kitchen. The AGA cooking stove and oven system allowed us to make virtually everything - including roasting veal loins and Asian cooking. The record collection was beautiful, and on rainy days, we had access to the projector and the lovely collection of DVDs. The rooms are large and clean; there're ample parking space for up to 3 vehicles. We loved every minute of our stay there.

To say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chalet Coeur could be construed as the understatement of the year. It is the quintessential holiday home away from home, in every aspect. If you wish to know more, or why, I suggest you just cut to the chase, book it and see for yourself and remember the words of the great Proust: "Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom". Warm thanks to Sebastian and Jasper for being very communicative, gracious and helpful.

Chalet Coeur is by far the most comfortable and gorgeous chalet we have stayed in during many visits to the Alps! It definitely has the Wow factor! It was perfect for our party of 10 people, lots of space , warm , very well equipped kitchen and very comfy beds . Lots of fun was had playing pool and table hockey ! We loved the location , it made the experience of being there very special . Lying in the sunken bath each evening looking at the view was a high light ..I think we all had a turn by the end of the hols ! The drive up to the chalet is beautiful , seeming somehow old worldly ,passing lovely old farmhouses , spotting deer and enjoying the stunning views. Even though it was early April it snowed for 2 nights, which added to the beautiful scenery . Jasper who looks after the Chalet was very helpful. Sameons is a very special and unspoilt village . We had a lovely meal out at Tornalta a little restaurant tucked away in a courtyard on the left just before you drive into the main square . The skiing is extensive and miles of piste accessible from the lift in Samoens . There is a great bakery just near the lift .Staying here was just an entirely different experience to a run of the mill chalet … such a treat that we all enjoyed . Thank you for having us .

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Chalet Coeur very much. The house is beautifully situated in the mountains, approximately 15 minutes in car uphill from Samoëns Village. Travelling as a big family, we were never in each others' way in the house as the plethora of bathrooms and bedrooms provided us with the right amount of privacy and comfort. On the other hand the grand and open living room, kitchen and dining area also made for the perfect surroundings to be together as a family. All together the experience has been very pleasant, not least thanks to the great attention from the house keeper, Jasper, through our stay and the dialogue with Sebastian prior and after the stay. Both have been extremely attentive, kind and flexible to meet our needs. We enjoyed a good amount of skiing while in Samöens - the area is perfect for both beginners and pros :) Lastly, we were very glad of the advise to rent 4x4 vehicles as driving up to Chalet Coeur with heavy dumbs of snow is otherwise a challenge. All in all, a very recommendable place for a holiday of skiing whether you are a big family or a couple of friends.

After viewing the property on airbnb we decided to rent it for a 2 week summer break in August. Following a long but pleasant drive from the UK we arrived and the house did not disappoint us. The interior is as splendid as the photographs suggest and it has a very homely feel with everything fully equipped. The mountain views are breathtaking and the location is superb. The nearest town of Samoens is a straightforward 15 minute drive and we could pick up very easily anything we needed for our stay. There were many activities on offer for our two families (with children) to keep us busy, e.g. white water rafting great fun, paragliding, Indiana Parc, and stunning walks at Sixt Fer a Cheval. The children enjoyed the open air pool and sports area in the town. Many good restaurants close by. Being in the mountains does not guarantee sunshine but despite the days we had rain the home cinema and pool table kept us amused. The sauna is fantastic after a long walk.

This Chalet is absolutly incredible. Imagine: you wake up the first morning and you discover in front of you: the landscape of the montain, the forest, 3 old authentic barns around... It´s really magic. The Chalet it self is fantastic: it was renovated with exquisite taste: a mixture of old and modern. Plenty of Space. bedding is extra. we spent delightful moments with our kids and our friends: bowling, sauna, games company, chimney fires... The contacts before our arrival were very pleasant and very attentive, and the friendliness and helpfulness of Jasper and Sebastian are a real plus on site. thank you We really recommand everyone to find a way to discover this lovely Chalet. And we will return one day for sure!
