The Area: Samoens, Grand Massif, French Alps

Samoens, in the Northern French Alps, sits between Morzine and Chamonix, only 1 hour from Geneva. This spectacular and beautiful area is protected and hence hasn't been spoilt by tourism yet. Samoens has been awarded a Coq d'Or for being one of the prettiest villages in France and is the only ski resort classified by the Caisse des Monuments Historiques. Samoens is full of character and charm with stone masonary and farming at the heart, yet still provides the centre for almost every outdoor activity imaginable.

Based at the heart of the Grand Massif mountain region and nestled in the stunning valley of the Giffre river, Samoens and the area provide spectacular scenery including mountain lakes, national parks, waterfalls, botanical gardens and an abundance of wildlife. Just minutes up the road at Sixt Fer a Cheval are over a dozen enormous waterfalls falling some 500m. It has a great deal to offer families, groups and individuals of all ages seeking adventure or alternatively, just sheer relaxation.

Grand Massif ski area includes the following five resorts: Flaine, Morillon, Les Carroz, Sixt and Samoens. Those after self-catered ski chalets in France will relish the extensive skiing and snowboarding this area offers, with an excellent snow record, which is one of the best in the Alps, not only due to the number of north facing runs, but also it enjoys a microclimate due to its proximity to Mont Blanc. The super fast gondola from Samoens village takes you up to the Samoens 1600m within just eight minutes. This delivers you directly into Samoens' own extensive ski area, which joins with over 265km of piste, 140 individual pistes plus 80 lifts. Click here to view the piste map. The recent addition of numerous new snow canons in the Grand Massif guarantees snow-covered runs throughout the season, so you can be sure to enjoy great conditions.
