Où se situe le logement

Samoëns, Rhône-Alpes, France

L’Ancienne Fromagerie is situated in the French Alps, in the medieval village of Samoens. One of the prettiest villages in France, and is the only winter and summer sports resort in France to be listed as a ’Monument Historique’. The chalet is ideally situated, it is just 200m from the historic village centre where you can find the boulangerie for fresh bread, croissants and cakes, supermarkets for stocking up on essentials and a wide selection of specialist shops, bars, cafes and restaurants.
Samoens' outdoor leisure complex is situated an easy walk along a footpath next to the river and has a variety of facilities including swimming pool, lakes and golf driving range.

In winter the free ski bus is a few minutes’ walk away, which takes you directly to the Grand Massif Express lift.

The Grand Massif Express lift is now open in summer (July and August) as well as winter; this is fantastic news for walkers, bikers, paragliders and sports enthusiasts alike.

In summer the location is perfect as right from the chalet door step are routes for road cycling, mountain biking and hill/mountain walking.
The area provides spectacular scenery, mountains. including mountain lakes, botanical garden, national parks and provides the centre for almost every outdoor activity imaginable, for all ages, summer or winter.

It is close to the borders of Switzerland and Italy, and day trips can be taken to Chamonix, Annecy or perhaps Lake Geneva, the largest lake in Europe or Mont Blanc the highest mountain.

Samoëns is only 60 minutes drive from Geneva International Airport, 540 miles from Calais, 20 minutes drive from the motorway exit , and the TGV train station at Cluses.

The Grand Massif is the 4th largest ski-linked area in France. It rises up to an altitude of 2500m. Surrounded by grandiose scenery, the Grand Massif affords a truly breath-taking panoramic view of the French side of the Mont Blanc mountain range. The 5 linked resorts - Flaine, Les Carroz, Morillon, Samoëns and Sixt - are remarkably diverse.

Cycling: Samoens and the Grand Massif has over 600km of well signposted cycle paths and a wide of range of length and difficulty, from black hair raising descents, to single track, valley riding and forest trails for all the family. Specialist cycle hire shops in Samoens (minutes walks from the chalet) cater for all abilities and guiding is available.
A mountain biker’s paradise, the lifts are open during July and August ensuring as much time as possible is spent going downhill. A VTT map can be purchased at the Tourist Office and there is a large board displaying the trails next to the tourist office. A mere 10 minutes away at the top of the north side of the Samoens valley, the Portes Du Soleil area gives you access to the more famous resorts of Morzine and Les Gets.
For road or touring enthusiasts the chalet is situated at the foot of the famous Col de Joux Plane, widely recognised as one of the best ascents in the Alps. Climbing from 721m to 1,691m over 13.1km with an average gradient of 7.4% (greater than 10% in places!) Samoens, is the start point and base for 6 fantastic rides, all very different and if they aren't enough, just 20 minutes away, a further 8 rides beginning for even the most experienced roadie.

Walking: Leave the car behind and take to the mountains and stay in one of the many refuges and break the walk, easily accessible from the chalet. There are numerous walks from the chalet, easy family walks to more challenging high level walks in the mountains. Walking in the Alps is very well signposted and maps and books of walks are available for you to borrow in the chalet – many of which we have walked ourselves. From beautiful alpine meadows, spectacular waterfalls, gorges, lakes to glaciers, and fantastic views including Mont Blanc which dominates the area.

Leisure complex & Swimming pools: Samoens' outdoor leisure complex is situated an easy walk along a footpath next to the river. The leisure centre has two beautiful lakes for fishing and boating, football pitches, 6 tennis courts, basketball/skate park, play park for children, archery and a golf driving range into the lake!

Two large swimming pools (one for 'swimming' and the other for 'playing'), an infant’s pool and a 60m water slide (tennis, swimming and archery are payable).
Also within the leisure complex is the Tarzan-style "Indiana Park" forest park, which consists of climbing rope ladders, crossing suspended bridges between trees then whizzing down zip lines! There are different courses based on age and ability.

Other Activities: Via Ferrata, climbing, mountain biking, road cycling, walking, horse-riding, paragliding, waterfalls, gorges, mountain lakes, archery, tennis, rafting, sledding, snowboarding, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, ice skating
Golf: 7 Courses within 1 hours drive. The 18 hole Golf courses at Les Carroz and Les Gets boasts fantastic views, and uncrowded fairways. Other golfing challenges in the area include an 18 hole course at Les Gets, a 9 hole course at Avoriaz, and a practice range at Samoëns with a driving range over water and a putting green which is an easy walk along a footpath next to the river.

Winter Facts: The Grand Massif is the 4th largest ski area in France and has one of the lowest lift to beds ratios…so much smaller queues than other well know resorts. Samoens now has a high speed lift from 1600m up to 2500m…this means less queuing, less time on the lifts and more skiing!

There are some fantastic alternative activities in the winter, so if you are a non skier there are plenty of other exciting things to take part in, why not try snow shoeing, dog sledding, or enjoy a delicious Savoyard meal in a Yurt on the side of the mountain!
Ski: The free ski bus is a few minutes’ walk from the chalet, which takes you directly to the high speed Grand Massif Express gondola, which takes just 8 minutes to reach Samoens 1600 and the extensive ski of the Grand Massif, with 144 of pistes and over 260 km of skiing. Samoens connects to the Flaine ski area and its renowned bowl and the pretty tree lined resorts of Les Carroz, Morillon and Sixt. The impressive ski area has a choice of challenging blacks, red, blue and gentle green runs to satisfy all skiing levels, including the famous 14km Les Cascades blue run from Flaine.

Places of interest in Samoens:
Market: The market is one of the largest in the Haute Savoie and well worth a stroll around on Wednesday mornings, selling everything from speciality food, wine, clothes and gifts.

La Jaysinia Botanic Garden: Alpine garden created in 1906 by Marie-Louise Cognacq-Jay, on 3.5 acres of land. Houses more than 8000 varieties of Alpine flora from around the world, together with waterfalls, castle ruins from the Xll century, and a chapel from the XVlll century.
Clos Parchet Living museum: Visit this old farm and discover the history of the families from Samoëns.

The Dairy, Frutiere de Samoëns: Visit the gallery and see cheese manufacture, the maturing cellar, drying room, film projection, and sale of local products.

During the summer, the weather is usually in the high 20s - perfect for swimming, walking, cycling, rafting, or visiting neighbouring towns and lakes in France, Switzerland or Italy.
